Honor and Respect All Living Creatures
To be conscious is to be aware and respectful towards all living creatures, big and small. They make up our world and are part of it. Treating animals humanly is a conscious trait. Being aware of where our food comes from and how an animal is treated is essential. Many people now want to know this. It is our duty as conscious human beings to treat all creatures with respect and dignity.
If you eat animal products, it is good to be aware that you are either eating a creature that was once alive or are eating a product of their current life. Either way you are taking from this creature to nourish yourself.
Acknowledging this life and knowing that the animal has or had a decent life is part of conscious living. We can take small steps, but it is important to take steps towards honoring all living creatures. When we are cruel to animals, we are cruel to ourselves. It is a reflection of our society and our values. When we raise animals with cruelty we absorb this hateful and painful energy. What goes around comes around. That is how energy works. When an animal is treated humanely and with compassion, this reflects in many positive ways. Honor and respect the food that is given to us by these creatures.
Animal companions are an important part of many of our lives. They give us love and loyalty. Treat them with humanity. Give them proper food, water, shelter and exercise. They need love also.
Remember our wild creatures also. They are part of our magnificent Earth. And they are part of our overall survival. Honor them and their habitat. Help them survive. Support their lives by practicing conscious economics, by walking softly, and by honoring the earth.
How do we honor all living creatures?
1) Treat all creatures with respect and dignity.
2) Practice “conscious economics” by purchasing humane/cruelty free and sustainable animal products.
3) Learn where your food comes from. Buy local, free range and organic whenever possible.
4) Speak out for all living creatures. Educate people about these issues.
5) Connect with the animal kingdom whenever possible. Interact with other species to gain empathy and awareness.
6) Walk softly and be aware of your impact on other creatures and their habitat.
When we become aware of our impact on our earth and its creatures we can take conscious steps towards honoring and respecting them. I call this way of life “conscious living”. By being aware of our actions and how they affect others we take a positive step towards living a more compassionate and fulfilling life. Small steps are important in our daily lives. By taking these steps we are helping change ourselves and the world around us in a positive way.
