Every person has a different path in their life. Some people choose a city life where everything 'grows' in grocery stores, while some people choose a life in nature where things grow by themselves or on people's well cared gardens.
I find people's decisions where they are going to live their lives quite fascinating. There are always stories behind them, sometimes well planned, sometimes very spontaneous.
This year I learned something new from the people who dedicated their life to the cows. They know how important the cows are for their survival and they treat them adequately.
For them, a cow is a holy cow. There is an invisible bond among them - you feel it, but don't see it. It was something holy in the air when those cows came from the mountains and passed us by. Bells ringing, flowers and holy pictures on cows' heads... Inner peace was all around us. And respect.
Today I'm thankful for this new lesson how important it is to respect everything and everyone, and give them all the respect they deserve.
Is there an animal that is holy to you - teaching you something about life?
