when i eat meat

14 Oct

i myself say this prayer each time i eat meat:

mother Gaia, mother Rhea i give thanks for the food that i eat. i give thanks to the spirit of the animal who’s flesh iam eating to live.

may it be reborn again in another place and time away from humanity.

iam not saying this is the right way. i do this this to honor the animal who’s flesh iam eating to live. trust me a lion, a tiger, a python, a grizzly bear, great white shark, any predator that takes a human life to survive. is not making such a prayer. rather i adopt to the Native American notion that we are part of nature. we are part of the great chain of being. despite our civilization we are part of nature. and we too get eaten. so by saying it. i hope some entity somewhere sees us when we are getting eaten. says the same prayer so we are lifted up.
