Eat yourself, do the world a favour!!!

A man lynched. Location- Uttar Pradesh. Reason- Consumption and storage of beef! Seriously!

As much as I might hate the slaughter of an innocent cow, I will never ever support such bloody acts of violence perpetrated by hate. I condone and abhor violence in any form. Yes I’d not even want to hurt a plant by eating it, but to survive I must. Inflicting pain on animals with a central nervous system is however, a completely different ball game.

Supposed intellectual/ porno writer Shobha Dey has challenged fanatics to come and kill her, because she ate beef! tada!

The ridiculousness of this all is actually mind baffling! A country in strife, religious fanaticism on the rise, lack of mutual respect, distrust! This is the general feeling I get. And things will get only worse.

With morons like Shobha Dey “speaking out”, issues at hand can only escalate. Solving them is not a possibility. Violence begets violence. A cow is a sentient being and she is holy, yes, like you and me and all of creation!

A pig is not haraam, but is super intelligent and very, very loving. Studies show that people working in slaughterhouses have a tendency to be violent. Hello! But of course. What do you expect? Your thoughts, your actions make you the person you are. Dealing with death, perpetrating it, can only have devastating results.

Please ban meat, not because the cow is sacred to the Hindu and you are a Muslim, so you must go against all that is holy for the Hindu. Do it because it is right, it is ethical. Cows are sentient beings and they have a right to live, like you and me. They have a right to experience this reality, to eat green grass, to frolic in the sun.

Pigs are not bacon. They are life too, like the cow and deserve an equal chance at living, experiencing. Look deep into your heart, think of life, it’s complexity, it’s beauty, it’s diversity! Doesn’t it amaze you!

Life amazes me in it’s most macro detail. When I see ants, I am fascinated! Their world, their movement, their dedication is awe-inspiring! Similarly when I look up, at the sky, or breathe fresh air, or feel the sun on my face, the waves at my feet, I truly feel alive.

I want that life for us all. Religion is not divisive. Religion is not hatred. It is all about peace and love and the final awakening!

Respecting life is the key to living a conscious way. As we become aware of what our deeds, our actions are doing to the world around us, we get closer to this conscious living.

Spirituality stems from a deep space within, from the void, the sunyata in all of us, from a filed of unity. People argue that eating meat does not make them less spiritual, blah, blah, blah.

If you ever find true spirituality, you will never be party to hurting a living, breathing being for food. NEVER!!! You will be love and you shall feel only love. But none of us are in that stage yet, of course. But some of us who realize that killing for food, or for sport or for fun, just does not cut it for us. We feel their pain, we hear/feel their cries, we become them.

No body loves me

I know, I know how this sounds. Pathetic act to grab some two-bit attention. Another attention-seeking ploy! A devastating subterfuge!

No one loves me!!! There is this feeling of love and hate with all my supposed close people. No one understands me! I remember voicing this, thinking this throughout my life. It’d go away, after all puberty does play havoc with our hormones. What are we but a play of hormones? Serotonin- happiness!! Oxytocin- bonding!! Chemicals dictate how we feel and that is fucking disgusting if you ask me. Downright annoying!

This alienation I feel, this sense of separateness must be due to some bloody chemical dancing around in my brain, eating all the gray cells. There are times when I wish I was the only person on Earth except animals. The only human, like Will Smith in some post Apocalyptic landscape!

This is not some sort of misanthropy. Not some kind of psychopathic leanings whereby I hate humans and want their destruction. I don’t! In fact I love humans, but from far away. If you come close, I tend to close up.

I tend to overthink, I tend to detest you! But as soon as you go away, I think of you fondly. What neurosis! I don’t have this anxiety disorder thingy. Nope ma’am! I don’t.

I feel like all of this is one huge worthless game. A pointless simulation. I’m kind of convinced that this world is definitely a computer game and we’re being played. What kind of world is this? People kill animals, treat them so badly, the meat industry, the dairy industry and don’t even bat an eyelid. It’s all food. We have a huge sense of entitlement! Like being human has given us this right to use and abuse, conquer and destroy, rape and pillage whatever we deem fit for exploitation.

Today I read in the news that a man was killed and his family tortured because his neighbors thought they were eating beef. Disgusting does not cut it! Yes I’m totally against eating beef, but this act of killing and raping the man’s family because he was eating beef is what shocks the hell out of me. We can actually do it. Kill another man, just like that.

We have it in us, in our collective unconscious to kill, destroy, lie, cheat. It’s programmed in us. Can we reprogram ourselves? Look around you! What do you see? Refugees. Hunger. Capitalism. Exploitation. Domestic Violence. Gender Inequality.

We are hopeless. I used to have hope, for myself, for us all. But HOPE is a word I have deleted. For Hoping is like a child on Christmas waiting to see Santa Claus. No one wants to hear all this, no one wants to see facts and no one wants to like me. I have accepted that fact that from my parents to my friends, to my relatives who live as they’ve been told to, in set value systems, I am NOT NORMAL.

My mother ruined my childhood by insisting I become normal. But here I am and I never want my daughter to be NORMAL! Normal, in today’s times is what I abhor.
