The Chinese New Year begins on February 16th and ends March 2nd. This year is the year of the Dog. Dogs are conscious beings with personalities and feelings, and like us, they not only live in the world but they are psychologically aware of it.

While we are all domesticated by societal norms, pigs, sheep and cows are bred into slavery and tortured.

Change Is A Mindful Thought
I changed my world with a single thought
by changing my mind I have done what I ought
finally I have found the treasure I sought
now my life won't come to nought
that takes me back to your next thought
will you do the things you ought
you might find the treasure you sought
then your life like mine won't come to nought

by changing our minds we can do what we ought
then we would live in a world we sought
and our planet won't come to nought
