Food Vibrations - Poem by Saiom Shriver

Only the fruit
of tree, bush, plant
or vine is given to us.
All other foods
(animal or fish flesh,
dairy products, eggs,
vegetables) come
from killing.

Topic(s) of this poem: environment, food, fruit, gardening, nonviolence

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The milk of an angry nursing mother can make her child sick -Paramahansa Yogananda-

The vibrations of a cook enter the food -Sathya Sai Baba- (one reason Baba gave for not eating where animal flesh is served)

The terror and anger of an animal before and during slaughter remain in the animal flesh, not only in the adrenaline residue of the fright hormones he or she secreted (only some of which links are broken by cooking) but also on more subtle levels.

The mirror focused on the void receives no energy... focused on the sun it shines with his light
... a paraphrasing of Sathya Sai Baba on the need to focus on positive thought in order to be
charged with spiritual energy

    What a great and true spiritual though!
    Only chosen minds and poets, like yourself teach us and bring to light the respect that should be had
    for all Life, so precious, so disrespected.
    This is a wonderful poem, should be posted on every door.
    Thank you

    Beautiful poem. Our ancients had deep sensitivities towards universe and its habitants. Food was a big part for keeping purity of thought. (Report)Reply
