We humans have such a luxury of time! We can calculate how many minutes to bake a cake... Or know how many decades our life expectancy should be. We have science to mark our ancient past and nano seconds that speed into the future. And we celebrate time in some significant way every 365 days - Champagne and confetti bring in the Happy New Year!
But I was wondering in all that we can measure in space organized by our rules - Can we ever know the final moments in the life of an Other? The cow... The pig... The deer, horse, bird, whale, dog, mouse, man, frog, fish or feline?
No, we can't know - We can only imagine what that last bit of time must be like. Life clings even when "Hope" says to give in. We can't comprehend how life struggles for one more breath... For one more second... How it desperately wants to hold on to it's time... To it's beingness... To it's life.
So who among us dares to cut short the time of an Other? And by what right?
In 2011 it is long overdue time to have the Peace we so desperately need? Choosing compassion is a great first effort towards that goal... Please Go Vegan.
