Save the animals, save yourself, and save the planet.
Being Vegan tunes into kindness, the most genuine of human attributes.
The underlying care in kindness, is what we believe is the essential part of human happiness. We feel happiest when we are giving to others.
Kindness has many extensions beyond simply being nice and polite.
Kindness involves understanding our impact on other sentient beings with regards to all our choices. It means digging below the surface of our own needs and into the conscious world or all other beings and doing all we can to reduce needless pain and suffering. Recognising we are all connected and reducing pain helps all.
Is a milkshake or a beef pattie truly worth the suffering of a whole family?
All animals have the same rights, to assume humans are more entitled is simply humans being bullies, rather than using our ample collective intelligence to be kind and unselfish.
With the choice of bullying or kindness which would you take. If you consume animal products it is just as connected with the killing of the animal as if the one who kills it, for the motivation for killing comes from our purchasing decisions.
Stop buying animal products and stop killing animals. Pigs and cows have just as much right to live as a puppy.
We are all connected on this tiny planet. Many believe connected in aura, pain and joy.
Lets use our intelligence for kindness over selfish whims.
For the animals - let us not kill when its not necessary. Save the billions of animals, who, just like us were magically born and arrived sentient and here.
For ourselves - it is healthier for our bodies and more loving for our souls.
For the planet - save our forests, our oceans and river systems.
We understand that many of us grew up eating meat, and our food is such a huge and connected part of our cultures, families and especially our own egos. Yet we would not eat out pets. Nor would we want our family abused for anothers meal especially when there is plenty of other food sources available. Please give it a try and see if saving some animals and eating healthy soothes your soul. It surely did for me.
It all changed one day. All thanks to a movie and some additional research, I started to see that in eating meat I was promoting the killing and abuse of animals.
Animals are my friends, I decided to stop eating my friends immediately.
It was an instant decision, one I have never and will never regret.
In aligning my actions to my values, I thought I'll give this vegan lifestyle a try. After a week or two I felt my whole body rose out of a sleep and started to feel more alive while my mind became amazingly clear.
My digestion improved sleep was better and I felt lighter as i was losing weight.
All the digestive issues i had in my life (40 years) disappeared in a week. I was so stunned by the improvement in my overall health, it was like a rebirth.
Going vegan became a complete no brainer.
