As a society, we are so intelligent, we know so much, yet we have trouble taking care of ourselves. We believe we are separate from our bodies and the earth and the animals whose milk (and lives) we use so freely. But we are not separate, we are one, and we are losing the delicate balance that allows so many fingers of creation to co-exist in relative peace.
Personally, cutting back on my dairy consumption is a step in the right direction. It is a step towards greater health, towards a smaller carbon footprint, and towards a clearer mind.
