    Do not start this discussion before reading the Mini Lecture #1 in this module.

    Part 2

    Discuss the importance of having a divine relationship with your animal food supply.

    So, what do you think? Should we begin to pay more attention to the spirits of animals?

    Would it help our spiritual well beings, to paint a picture of a cow after chowing down those burgers?

    Is there something missing from our relationship with our food?

    Has anyone seen the scary movie, Food Inc.?

    Is that in a small way a contributing factor to some of our diseases that our linked to diet?

    Does Mad Cow Disease frighten you as much as me?

    How about tainted salsa, spinach; and lettuce, and recently eggs?

    Is it time to start painting pictures of cattle, chickens, pigs; and bison?
