The Future Is Vegan
**How adorable is my Shorter?!?!?
"Happiness, peace, and freedom flow from nonviolence. We are all connected, and our joy is in blessing others. I don’t know how it will happen, but this I know in my bones: our future is veganism. Our future selves are vegans – delightedly and powerfully aware of the ancient truth of our magnificence. We are not shrinking, reducing, commodifying, cruel and numb people who heartlessly destroy the Earth and the sacred web of life—who have no future and have lost our purpose by stealing the purposes of others. We are consciousness, grace, kindness, creative inspiration, joy, and understanding. When light shines, darkness simply disappears without a trace. No fight is required. Letting the light shine through, breathing deeply and fully, we partake of the infinite, moment after moment.
We are all beings of light and awareness and love, born into a culture of violence, ignorance, and exclusion. We take on its darkness and fear, and the core ritual used by our culture to effect this is our daily meals, where we are forced to participate in routine killing by eating and buying the flesh and secretions of imprisoned, terrified animals. Our path to freedom lies in freeing these animals. Veganism is the feminine wisdom of interconnectedness, the spiritual and practical key to happiness and peace for all. She is our future. She is beckoning to us."
Beautiful words written by Dr. Will Tuttle that I wholeheartedly stand beside. This brilliant, compassionate man has read my mind. We will never be able to see the divine in ourselves and others if we continue down a path of hate, fear, judgement, and violence. Read the rest here if you are feeling inspired, which you should be. It's time for a HUGE shift in the way we live and treat all living things: http://crazysexylife.com/2009/our-future-is-vegan/
