Have you ever said thank-you to the cow that provided you with the steak for your
dinner! I expect you think the idea preposterous. If you were to say thank-you: to
the cow for its meat, milk, butter and cheese, to the vegetables for their sacrifice
of life so that you can live, to the air, water and fire and earth for their contributions
to your life – then you may have to start thinking a bit harder about yourself and
your connection to earth.
Saying ‘Thank-you’. We are all taught this as children,
why? Just think how it feels when someone does say ‘thank-you’ for something you
have done. It makes you feel good and then you are open to doing something else for
that person. That person, by saying ‘thank-you’, is honouring you and what you have
done, thus paving the way for more abundance. Once you actually live the attitude
of gratitude, it’s amazing what comes your way. So what have you done by saying ‘thank-you’?
You have raised the vibrational frequency of the deed you did; the steak and vegetables
or fruit you have eaten or the glass of water you drank, to a spiritual one. You
are working on a higher level of connection to all that is.
Further, by saying ‘thank-you
to the cow for the steak’ we can connect with its energy—that’s a scary thought -
who wants to connect with a cow? Well, my friends, it is a fact that we are connected
to everything. We are not separate from other consciousnesses on the planet or from
the consciousness of the planet herself. We in the West, technological, greedy, corrupt,
consumed with self, have lost our way. The Aborigines and the Native American Indians
(before the white man destroyed their cultures) as well as other indigenous tribes,
all have this close connection to earth. They have not raped and pillaged the earth;
they have nurtured and cared for it as much as they can. They say thank-you to the
animal they have killed, thereby honouring it, also they do not take more than they
need. They know that, in their gratitude they create further abundance.
Take a look
at the vegetables in the supermarket. Don’t they look wonderful? Have you ever wondered
why it is that the World Health Organisation keeps increasing our daily recommended
input of fruit and vegetables? Well, it is because those beautiful vegetables have
hardly any vitamins, minerals or life force energy. This means we have to eat more
to get what we require in order to survive. We have lost our connection to and understanding
of the earth so much so that our farming methods just plunder the soil. Feed the
soil, nurture it and rest it and you will get good crops with high vitamin and mineral
content as well as life force energy. Say Thank-you!
Even better, connect with the
earth yourself; grow some of your own vegetables (try containers if space is limited).
Come back to the being who is part of planet earth, part of the tapestry of life
integral to the planet instead of trying to be separated. There is actually nothing
lacking on this planet, it is the management and distribution systems that have gone
awry, together with our own lack of connection.
There is abundance for all! We can
create it in our lives by living an attitude of gratitude and beginning the realisation
that we are not separate from anyone or anything.
