Are you mindful before you open your mouth?
For your speech? or for anything you put into your mouth?
Are you aware whether your action is bringing happiness or suffering?
A simple example,
Have you ever heard that people love to get together and discuss how yummy are cooked meat, how fresh was the seafood and other “live” products?
When they are discussing about it, their eyes are shinning, full of passion and the deep CRAVING to eat, to them- it’s food, a thing. They are not realizing that a life is being killed in order for them to enjoy so called “yummy food.” They don’t see their topics of discussion is full of “violent” and “suffering”- pain, fear, anger and all negative emotions from dying animals.
Besides, they love to share, take photos and recommending their friends to enjoy “yummy meat food”.
What is the implication?
More demand, more supply, more animals are being Killed.
Think about it, who should responsible for this cruelty action?
We act ignorance about other’s suffering and denied that our action are contributing to “cruelty”. We just want to satisfy our CRAVING and personal interest.
Wake up, my friends.
Peace starts on your plate. Don’t use your fork, knife and spoon as weapon and your mouth as a tool to cruelty action.
