“As promised in our previous post, today we share a special offer of gratitude for compassionate ‘Daniel Fast’ enthusiasts who were kind enough to follow us over from the imagineahimsa blog.
For those unfamiliar with this term, the Daniel Fast is not so much fasting but essentially more of a dietary lifestyle alteration modelled after the biblical account of the life of Daniel.
This spiritually-inspired way of eating essentially embraces veganism and transcendental enlightenment which often comes as a result of adaptation to peaceful dietary habits. Some would describe it as a spiritual journey to deeper understanding and closer relationship with creative force.
This particular lifestyle is not only considered to be spiritually beneficial, but as the Daniel Fast eliminates animal flesh, by-products, and also gluten (three common causes of many digestive issues), it is deemed a wonderful way to begin a life of vibrant health as a result of mindful eating.
Compassion begins on the plate, and looking into this particular philosophy may very likely change the way one looks at food and fasting forever!
And so without further ado, today we offer:
and also a collection of
for those inclined to huddle around their crockpots for warmth and Winter nourishment.
Happy holidays, and many thanks!”

Hear our humble prayer,
for our friends, the animals, especially for those who are suffering;
for any that are lost of deserted, or frightened or hungry.
We entreat for them all
Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them,
we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves,
to be true friends to animals
and so to share
of the merciful.
