I have been a vegetarian for over 5 years. People would ask me why I was a 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.
But 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.
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.
