The Importance of Reflection

There is a time for everything in life: Action and Inaction.

When we are in the midst of rapid change, frustration, major events it can seem that its crazy-madness; but there is order in the chaos. It takes a moment to step out of it, take some perspective and re-evaluate whats really happening. But that usually doesn’t happen when its happening (unless we are a super yogi…). And that’s okay.

We are humans and we were born to make mistakes. Its one of the main  ways to learn. The important thing is that once life has settled we take a moment to pause, breath and take in what happened. As much action there is, there needs to be the polarity of relaxation, of revaluation and contemplation. If we are constantly moving and never take  time to take in the sights then we miss the point of life. Life happens in the simple, in the little moments and its not about the end, its about how we got there.; Its about the experience learned, the conversations we had and the difficulties we over came along the way.

Radical self love, self forgiveness is a must and it takes patience and work to get there. To love ourselves as much as we love others, the divine etc. To forgive ourselves when we lost our footing, our head amongst the noise and say to ourselves ” It’s okay, I can do better next time”. We can be our worst enemy or our best friend. It is important to develop a strong and good relationship with ourselves because lets face it, you are with yourself 24/7. It takes practice but every time we take a moment after the fact to evaluate what happened and what we could do better the next time, it makes us better. It opens our minds and lets us see different perspectives. It creates space for change. 

No need to judge, criticize, or put ourselves or others down. See yourself and others a small child, although the body has grown we are just as sensitive and vulnerable as when we were younger. Acknowledge what happened and move forward with acceptance, gratitude for the lesson and with optimism. Life will throw everything it can at us, but its how we deal with it that creates character and a legacy.

Why I went Vegan- The most impactful way to help the Environment

Check out this article to REALLY know how you can create a positive impact with the environment. If you really want to make a difference, heres how !

 

I have been a vegetarian for over 5 years. People would ask me why I was images1a vegetarian and I had may responses. I would answer:

“Because I don’t feel right eating animals if I didn’t have the heart to kill them.. So why be okay with someone else doing the dirty work?”

” Because I don’t believe in violence in any form, it says “thou shalt not kill” in the Bible, animal lives are not exempt.”

” Because it lowers my frequency, I feel lower emotions like anger, jealously and have more destructive thoughts. It creates more restlessness in my life because when they kill the animals there is cortisol and hormones of fear released and then we consume that and it enters our bodies.”

All of these were good responses, but they weren’t GREAT… I knew it didn’t feel right, but I didn’t have a really convincing argument.

hqdefaultBut then..  I watched Cowspiracy and it all made sense. I have my GREAT reason. As an avid environmentalist, a human and animal rights activist but more so as a Guardian of Gaia I cannot eat meat and say I am an environmentalist. Our planet is facing a strain from the amount of pressure we are putting on it to extract resources in every space and form. As humans we have multiplied to over 7 Billion people and what we eat affects this planet more than we ever thought possible.

Cowspiracy, clearly explains that if the human population goes Vegan- sustaining from meat and dairy we can feed everyone, NO ONE would have to starve anymore.  Eating meat/ dairy is not sustainable for the worlds population and we cannot continue to ignore that our habits of eating must change.

Another benefit of going veggie for our planet is – we would be able to not only save the Amazon rainforest, but be able to start replanting so that it can grow back  (The Amazon is our planets lungs, more oxygen comes from that forest than the whole planet and an acre is destroyed every minute to plant soybeans to feed cows that we then eat as hamburgers, also land is changed for cow grazing land).  The environment would be impacted in a positive way and our global emissions of green houses would go down dramatically reversing climate change. eaf2bc15504779ccc85d1e339390ea69

The meat industry and the pharmaceutical companies do not want the citizens of the world to know that by going vegan, if only part of the time we can greatly help our planet. They have kept this a secret to keep their profits going. And it makes me think… Maybe the cows and pigs aren’t the only ones being farmed.. Could we be apart of some greater farm. Where we are the ones being milked for our money, at the expense of our planet, of our future.

We only have one planet and as conscious beings it is our responsibility to protect what we have been given. Watch the film and make your own decision.
