THE RISING OF CONSCIOUSNESS

Great minds sharing a united truth

“For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”
Pythagoras, mathematician

“The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.”
Leonardo da Vinci, artist and scientist

“Our task must be to free ourselves . . . by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty”…”Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”
Albert Einstein, physicist, Nobel Prize 1921

“As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields.”
Leo Tolstoy, author

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Mahatma Gandhi, statesman and philosopher

“You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, essayist

“I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.”
Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. President

“Some of the greatest minds that have ever existed in humanity expressed a united truth on one particular topic in amongst their individual pursuits of genius. That common place of truth, was their awareness of the need for human compassion to encompass all living beings if we are to survive as a species. Yet despite this information being shared for over two millennium, the reality that we are presented with today on planet earth, is that we have been unable to embrace and build this into our reality. The consequences are devastating, creating all of the mayhem which we are trying to fix without first addressing this most crucial issue…Human Compassion.”

    Is it possible that people who partake in murder only fit in to one of two categories: Ignorant or Evil?!

  2. Good people kill.

    Bad people love.

    WE are all lost in the same place. But within this apparent madness is hidden a gift for those who dare to face the killer that lives within us all… whether it is stirred from its slumber or not, it is there!

    Without compassion we are evil.

    Without knowledge we are ignorant.
