I do high tech work, had apartments in the Bay Area (San Jose / Foster City), and have had a farm for two decades.
The work with animals, we have two dozen plus horses, currently 9 cats and 1 dog (though we have had 9 dogs and 6 cats too)
Really creates balance and appreciation for life and people.
I have had my hands up delivering birth, so yeah I see the gifts of life 3-6 times a year, and yes the vagina is far superior to the penis.
I have had to put animals down, which due to the hardness in my life is my sliver lining since I can process it ...
Animals are amazing creatures, but it also teaches one about life and nature and how you get what you give and karmic balance is immediate.
If people had to take care of animals and live with nature, they would learn how small man is in the grand scheme of things.
We even had a special needs horse where we kept it in the house, and bottle fed it until it could be put outside.
Mothers that have children know how this is. Picture doing this every 1-2 hours for 6 months around the clock.
But the pony had fight and a lot of love.
To give you an idea of what it takes to run a farm.
We burn through 15,000 gallons of water a month, and I believe 4-5 tons of hay and 1-2 tons of grain.
So one appreciates the requirements to live ...
But you know what ... while people are living their life dramas, literally the weekend after the horrible events with the Minnesota cop. A tornado hit our barn and farm, and we were running out into it to save the animals.
Because that is what you do....
