We become aware of the suffering caused by our unmindful consumption
We become aware of the suffering caused by our unmindful consumption, We vow to cultivate good health, both physical and mental, for ourself, our family, and our society by practicing mindful eating, drinking and consuming. We vow to ingest only items that preserve peace, well-being and joy in my body, in my consciousness, and in the collective body and consciousness of my family and society. We are determined not to use alcohol or any other intoxicant or to ingest foods or other items that contain toxins, such as certain TV programs, magazines, books, films and conversations. We are aware that to damage our body or our consciousness with these poisons is to betray future generations. We will work to transform violence, fear, anger and confusion in ourselves and in society by practicing a diet for ourself and for society. We understand that a proper recovery program is crucial for self-transformation and for the transformation of society.
