Perhaps a Cow’s Thought

“Hello, my name is….well, let’s see, I don’t have a name per se, I’m mostly just referred to as a number—a tag, if you will. But, I don’t mind. Currently, I live in a large open pasture in Colorado and I enjoy the freedoms that many of my counterparts do not. What I would like to share with you today is not to ask you to feel sorry for me, as we all know my eventual fate; but, rather, I’d like to offer a suggestion—a gentle prod  (pun intended) to my human brethren. You see, when we livestock agree to incarnate into this physical plane called Earth, we have a pretty good idea of what we are here for. Like all sentient beings, our souls have a Divine plan, and while it may not be to build rockets, manufacture cars, or even design the most innovative electronic device known to man, we are here on purpose. We know that, in addition to being the food that is set before others (not just humans), we can also teach others (mostly humans) kindness, respect, compassion and honor. I ask that, though I may be your next meal, you may, in your loving heart, recognize the agreed upon sacrifice that I have made for you. I (we) understand that it will take much time and conscious decision-making on Earth in order for us to no longer incarnate for the purpose of consumption. But in the meantime, this is all we ask: honor us with a small, humble prayer that says: “I thank you, cow spirit, for the giving of your life force for my nourishment; for my enjoyment—I honor your Divine path.” This small, but powerful prayer of gratitude, has an uplifting energy associated with it. We feel it. Might you be willing to do that? If so, we, in turn, thank you…”

    Thank you cow spirit; might I say that you cows are quite delicious. We would not raise you for food if you were not so tasty. And, I am sorry you are merely a number. If you had a name, it would be much more difficult to send you to slaughter…and much more difficult to eat you paired with a fine Chianti.
    Do you know of Temple Grandin and her efforts? She says, "Nature is cruel enough. We (humans) don’t have to be." This refers to the manner in which we honor our cows…our living-food harvest. The gratitude and respect we show for our animals demonstrates our human nature and the realization that we are one and the same. Humans are nature.
