In the age of Covid 19, a virus that is as mysterious as it is daunting no matter how you slice it, has changed the entire face of our culture. This infamous invisible enemy, paired with the mass government response to it, has caused the entire infrastructure to be disrupted. You could say, it has been bulldozed to the ground in order to be built back up again new & with any luck, improved. Improved ideally with the collective adopting a whole new outlook, & approach to living, interacting, behaving, & treating each other. Improved ideally with the collective adopting many new programs that fund a freer more prosperous easier lifestyle going forward. That would be nice, wouldn’t it?

The human population is having to rethink, reevaluate, restructure, re-purpose, rebuild, renovate, & reconfigure their plans, purposes, & priorities. Everything seems to be in question. We are being compelled to be resourceful, creative & to think outside the box. We are taking responsibility for our actions & becoming hyper aware of ourselves & of each other on an unprecedented level. We are being pushed right out of our comfort zones right into a new normal, as they say. Things have definitely shifted & changed forever in many significant ways. For the good, the bad or indifferent… is totally debatable, depending on who you are.
I for one, kinda think that Pandora’s Box just got its butt kicked royally. We are now seeing a whole lotta stuff that was once kept secret and/or hidden. Total exposure is on the rise. For example… one thing the media has highlighted recently, is that there appears to be meat shortages everywhere. Maybe this is a SIGN that we should seriously be considering our meatless options. Ya think?

these-fast-food-food-facts-willmake-you-wanna-go-vegan1

Two days ago, while the general population focused on the typical issues like partisan mind games, ego battles over freedom & rights, unemployment numbers, the economy, the education of our children, keeping our families fed & safe, reopening our society & the death toll rising…

Back at the ranch… I sat in silent introspection…

…and this is what was given to me:

 

Sound the alarm! Our animals are being tortured, our land being raped, our oceans polluted & our water supply poisoned. What the heezie does Mother Nature have to do to wake up this human race? What kind of plague, virus, natural disaster or terrorist attack has to occur for this population to start doing the right thing?? Huh?

To what degree does Mother Nature have to go… to shut down factory farming & slaughterhouses for GOOD next time? It was quite an extreme measure Mother Nature had to take to shut the whole world down just so that humans can be FORCED to learn how to go within. To learn how to seek solace via the inner realms, seek wholeness from our home bases, instead of reaching everywhere outside of ourselves for satisfaction, happiness, fulfillment, love, self worth, value, definition & purpose. When humans are faced with their own mortality, it kinda forces them to start reevaluating what’s really important in life.

What more do people want as PROOF, that life on this planet was given to us, not for our greedy unhealthy OVER CONSUMPTION… but for us to LOVE. Do no harm. What part of “do no harm” do people not understand? Society should be ashamed of itself.

***The term Ahimsa (do no harm) is an important spiritual doctrine shared by Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. It literally means ‘non-injury’ and ‘non-killing’. It implies the total avoidance of harming of any kind of living creatures not only by deeds, but also by words and in thoughts. FYI: the concept of “do no harm,” is notably also contained in the Hippocratic Oath that all medical personnel must take regarding their patients.

Human beings were not meant to slaughter innocent animals by the thousands every hour of every day across the globe. What a crying shame… that the media & government actually advertises to the general public, that we need meat to survive. What a blatant LIE. Our food supply is not being compromised or threatened. It is being righteously interrupted & redirected to a moral & ethical, humane & healthy, spiritually sound program. One filled with NO MURDERED ANIMAL MEAT. Period. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or a straight A student to see the bigger picture, beyond the veil… into the deeper meaning of it all, on the grand scale of human evolution. When you review history, & look at the “story of us,” you begin to see very clearly the succession & progression of things.

When the collective’s bad behavior comes to a head, Nature sits us down, & shuts us up… to force us to be take a good hard look at our choices, actions, & states of mind & thus lot in life according to that. To force us to rely less on any codependent existence but rather become interdependent for the purpose of coexisting rather than always competing & stealing energy from one another in a dog eat dog world. To force us to depend less on the material world & more on our soul. To force us to face our lives with less distractions & drama but more time & space so that we may gauge exactly what we are creating for ourselves & our families, & also what we have been thus buying into. <<<<<<THAT’S AN IMPORTANT STATEMENT. What have… YOU, been buying into lately?

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
~William Shakespeare

 

Consequently… we may then be able to take responsibility & consciously CHANGE our adverse ways, iron the kinks, manage the missteps, rethink our path. In the current world pandemic case, front liners are having to take many risks witnessing sickness, suffering, suffocating, death & dying every day, day in & day out. This comes with a whole nother set of learning curves & challenges. Props & praise to all the first responders who are Earth Angels. Sending love, light & protection.

That said, our precious animals & creatures of the earth die a horrible death every single second, of every single day for years & years with no end in sight, but rather just an immense growing DEMAND FOR MORE. What a crying shame. I don’t see any first responders on the front lines nobly trying to save them, do you?? Why are their lives any different from ours? In cages, in pens, stressed out on death row & treated like things instead of creatures with beating hearts. We might reach the 100 thousand mark of Covid deaths in the U.S.? Well, the greed system of factory farming murders 100 thousand innocent animals a DAY. No wait, I’m sorry… miscalculated…

“EACH DAY approximately 160 MILLION farm animals throughout the world are transported to a slaughterhouse.”
– Farm Animal Rights Movement
“Approximately 25 MILLION farm animals are slaughtered EACH DAY in the United States.”
– Mercy for Animals

 

Every single solitary day now for years & years… just so ignorant folk can have some kind of brainwashed twisted luxury of a hamburger on their menu, a steak on their plate, ham on their sandwich or a tray of greasy fried chicken wings on their Super bowl Sunday spread. Shame on u. Oops, did I just say that? Sorry, I’m not sorry.

160 MILLION MURDERED ANIMALS A DAY!

Animal Facts Website All FACTS I posted at the end of this blog post. Check it out…

There is no excuse. These days their are soooo many meat alternatives more than ever before. Heck we can grow real beef from a petri dish in a lab. Why do we have to continue to mass murder animals? Shut the meat processing plants down I say! Shut them down! Set them on fire & let the flames consume all the horrible karma that’s killing our earth & morally corrupting our children & population at large… snuffing out any semblance of reverence or respect for God’s creatures. STOP eating animal flesh. Boycott it. If there is NO DEMAND, there will be no supply necessary. The oldest equation in the book. Let’s begin to make the demand for MEATLESS ALTERNATIVES. That’s it. Very simple.

But, you can’t do that can you? Because you & your fellow inmates are brainwashed into believing that you MUST have meat in your diet. Straight up. There are plenty of remarkable ways to get plant based protein. Regarding dairy? NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND should ever have to drink animal’s milk ever again. We have so many delicious & more nutritious alternatives it’s ridiculous. Cheese, eggs, fish… in moderation, all debatable for another constructive conversation. But, regarding GALLONS & gallons of cow’s milk consumers are constantly buying? There is no excuse. Not necessary ANY MORE. Poor cows are raped by machines to stay lactating just so the population can consume it. It’s unnatural, inhumane & simply NOT NECESSARY from a nutrition standpoint or any standpoint for that matter.

“About NINE MILLION COWS are being used for milk production in the United States at any given time.”
– American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

il_340x270-1116555473_f6fj

Almond, cashew, coconut, soy, etc etc etc… there are a million & one different variations of plant based milk to fit EVERYONE’S taste that exists right now around ever corner, & every bend. We have come a long way, plant based milk is now even very accessible in “food deserts” & corner store laden impoverished hoods. There is a demand for plant based milk & dairy, so it is slowly but surely seeping into stores everywhere. The supply is growing more abundant & available to the average citizen in every class & demographic now more than ever, simply because…. people are waking up. People are wanting to drink the healthy alternative to the chemically treated forced lactation of an animal. See, the supply & demand strategy DOES WORK. This proves it.

Now, going forward, all we have to do is ramp it up. BOYCOTT milk… altogether. That will exponentially cut our human consumption of dairy in half… which is significant enough to make a huge difference in the dairy industry. Thus, significantly reducing the mistreatment of animals.

Now going forward, we can also do the same thing with MEAT. Do you really have to eat 25 wings on Sunday at the bar? There are wing alternatives you know. Just like the Impossible Burger, there are now plenty of tasty chicken & bacon alternatives available everywhere. We just have to boycott meat. Whatever the consumer wants becomes the “demand” so if animal meat is no longer wanted… the nonexistent demand will warrant NO SUPPLY.

All corporations & greedy money mongers care about anyway, is the almighty dollar. They don’t care if it’s cow, crocodile or bat… if that’s what the consumer wants… they will produce it. And thus, sell the crap out of that product. If it becomes NO LONGER meat, & is replaced by a HUGE DEMAND for plant based options… They WILL MEET THE NEED. Big Business is not gonna try to keep selling tee shirts to a bunch of people that don’t wear them anymore. Big Business follows the money trail that follows the trends.

Let’s make meat “out of style,” unpopular, frowned upon… like we as a culture basically have done with cigarettes & vaping. Let’s make meat no longer relevant to our food consumption, health, wellness & survival. We will automatically put factory farming right out of business. Dairy farms, the hellish slaughter houses, the despicable meat processing plants will close down due to NO DEMAND for its product supply. And new plants will open that replace them, new plant-based processing plants, labs & more produce farms. Government & society will always adapt & adjust to the changing trends & times & tastes & preferences of its people. It’s just the way things work. Supply & demand.

It’s starts with one. Each individual person’s choice. Then that one choice becomes infectious to others & others make better more informed, responsible, respectable choices. Plant-based choices. Boycott meat & milk. Right now. Its very simple. Get over the “but it tastes good” attitude… & next time you think about purchasing that gallon of milk or overstocking up on steaks & bacon… hear the distant screams of fear, pain & sadness that go along with the bloody murder & mistreatment of those poor animals that were harmed for it. Then, think again, CHOOSE WISELY. We ALL need to take responsibility for cleaning up the karma of this planet. Individually & collectively we need to stop acting ignorant, & turning a blind eye on the truth.

It is no longer in our best interest to keep EXCESSIVELY OVER CONSUMING meat & dairy to the point where there is severe blood on our hands in the most tragic, immoral & unconscionable way. Don’t you dare play dumb. We are too evolved as a species to act like we don’t know where that meat on our plate came from. It’s time for each & everyone of us to get a back bone, grow a pair & STOP being morally irresponsible, blatantly defiant & irreverently disrespectful to living breathing innocent creatures. God did not put us here to abuse them & mass murder them for the sake of greed & gluttony. We are spitting in the Holy face of the God-force & Mother Nature by continuing this behavior. It’s morally corrupt, a spiritual defamation & totally sacrilegious as far as I’m concerned..

Mass murdering animals for the sake of greedy meat consumption is no longer acceptable & should NOT BE the general population’s status quo any more. No longer should we be sitting around passing off this nasty meat eating habit we have, as a healthy necessary habit. That’s simply NOT TRUE.

With all due respect to these carefully crafted labels… I‘m not a vegan, I’m not a vegetarian, I’m not some left wing green new dealer, or global warming activist. What I am is: an Animal Ambassador, a Nature Ambassador, an honorary God Force inductee… giving a voice to the voiceless. I am pro Earth. I am pro plant. I am pro Mother Nature & pro equal ethical treatment of ALL God’s creatures. We have a duty as humans to protect ourselves, each other, the earth & all its inhabitants. If you honestly DO NOT have the where will all, to honer that code… then frankly, you don’t deserve to be here.

It’s circa 2020, not 1920. We are wiser than we ever were before in all of history. We can’t ignore the truth & go back to being innocent or ignorant, just gobbling down excessive amounts of dead animal product all the time… blindly accepting it cause that’s what everyone else is doing & that’s what media & society says is RIGHT.
NO LONGER can we do that.

We’ve been doing it for too long. It’s time to change our bad inhumane choices & habits… & be better versions of ourselves. Circa 2020, on this planet, we should be living with more honesty, integrity & harmony by now. We should collectively be evolved enough to be consciously choosing to PROTECT the planet & her inhabitants. We should be honoring the soul of the Earth, Mother Gaia, Planet Terra, to the utmost degree. We need & MUST graduate to the next level: the fair & humane treatment of all living creatures.

>>>>Don’t even get me started on ass-backwards weird CHINA & ASIA regarding innocent animals.<<<<

There are more than 17,000 dog-meat farms in South Korea.
Humane Society of the United States
More than 10,000 bears are being kept on bile farms in China.
Animals Asia Foundation
The number of pigs reared for food each year in the United Kingdom is 10 million; in the United States is 110 million; in Europe excluding the United Kingdom is 300 million, and >>>>IN CHINA IS 680 MILLION<<<< – Compassion in World Farming

 

If you don’t know what a “bile farm” is… GOOGLE IT. You will be completely devastated. This kind of bad behavior is NOT HUMAN. We must have impostors running around on this earth that just look like humans, but are actually soulless monsters. They are repugnant robots sent here to poison the planet. It’s our job to STOP THEM.

It’s time to man & woman up & step up to the plate, & stop buying into the false narrative that states: meat is good for you & milk does a body good. It’s a false advertisement that has brainwashed the entire population to over consume & feed big business with major profits made of dirty money. Profits gained at the cost of innocent lives.

“An average person living in a developed country who is not a vegetarian or vegan will consume approximately 7000 ANIMALS during his or her lifetime.” – Vegetarian Calculator

 

Let’s face it… these nefarious profits are assuredly gained at the cost of our morals, values, karma, body, heart, mind & soul as well. We pay the price every day for consuming that slaughtered animal. You are what you eat… is not just a wonky statement… it’s the truth. All that toxic DNA accumulating over time in your body, bones, muscles, tissue, arteries, organs, cells, & energy field… just slowly poisoning you with the death & dying atoms of bad karma. Stop poisoning yourself with meat & dairy… creating all kinds of diseases in the body, compromising the quality of your life. Stop paying the factory farming industry’s salary, stop funding their yachts & high life styles, stop employing Big Pharma to keep you sick. It’s all a big giant greed machine, a scam that brutally tortures & kills animals for a buck. Then down the road, winds up causing havoc in our bodies, heart health, fitness, mental health, colons, digestive tracks, reproductive organs, energy levels, etc etc.

chain_reaction_report-jpg-662x0_q70_crop-scale
Its NOT NATURAL, the EXCESSIVE over consumption of meat & dairy. The amount of meat & dairy that we were taught to be accustomed to, that we were taught is right & proper… is a falsehood. We have been reeled into believing that this falsified program is okay for our life, morally correct, & necessary for our survival. They used propaganda & scare tactics to fool us into believing that meat & dairy consumption is ESSENTIAL to have a high quality of life, & ESSENTIAL to getting all necessary vitamins & nutrients to be a healthy, strong & productive human being. But as you can plainly see, it has done nothing of the sort. It has made us sick, overweight, lethargic, depressed, unmotivated, gluttonous, addicted, obese, prone to all kinds of diseases, with a weakened immune system & a undernourished unbalanced body. That’s NOT what people thought they were signing up for. Now, Big Pharma is CASHING IN. And unfortunately, our damaged health & wellness is their golden ticket.

naturli_vejen_generisk_uk-1024x419

Plant based eating will severely damage not us… but rather to their dismay… the greed machine. And Big Pharma, healthcare & factory farming would no longer profit off of man’s ignorant, sick & twisted over-consumption of meat & dairy. My assumption, is that Big Brother won’t give up that easy, so the powers that be, will continue to nudge us in their devious direction. But, if I may speak on behalf of all of us… we are not that stupid anymore. After much investigation, the facts are in: we are being played. We’ve been being played for decades upon decades & it’s time we rise up out of that victim role & refuse to engage is such blasphemy. The market for meat should be shut down on a grand scale.

Meat eating & drinking animal milk should be made illegal.

Going forward, we must protect the rights of innocent creatures so we can begin to significantly clean up the mass karma of humanity. We can begin to heal Mother Nature & thus quite obviously begin to heal ourselves. We can begin to heal ourselves from all the self-inflicted harm we have caused via excessive over-consumption of dead animal & dairy products. This over-consumption has been tangling up our lives with exorbitant doctor & dentist bills, & has made us codependent on hospitals & drugs. We are better than that. We deserve better.

Its time we moved beyond this dysfunctional paradigm of illusion & position our lives to live in the light where we choose life… not death. It’s time we make life-giving, fresh food choices jam packed with high vibration, vitality & top shelf vitamins & nutrients. Lets veer away from the rotting flesh choices that clog our bodies with toxicity, chemicals & density while attacking our cells with free radicals, stealing good bacteria, compromising our immune systems with deterioration, aging, sickness & disease.

Be pro plant. For the sake of yourself, your family, the human condition, future generations. Do the right thing. Just say NO… to meat & milk. We will save cheese, eggs & fish for another conversation. Let’s start there. It’s an EXCELLENT starting point.

“Now go! Go in peace to love & serve the Lord…” as the Catholic priest says each time he ends mass & dismisses the congregation.

I say… “Now go! Go in peace to love & serve yourself, your neighbor, your highest good & the highest good of everyone & thing on the planet. Praise be to Mother Gaia. Amen. Namaste!”

Warning: Beware my dear faint of heart, with this book, I thee wed… the deal. It may carry a sizeable offense factor.

Introduction

 

Everything heals. Your body heals. Your heart heals. The mind heals. Wounds heal. Your soul repairs itself. Your happiness is always going to come back. Bad times don’t last.”

Christiana Rutkowski

Let me start by saying… EVERYTHING HEALS. Thank God for small favors. Life, the Earth & her inhabitants & we the people here, are all self-cleaning mechanisms, wherefore we can drain the living shit out of all our resources & fashion a fateful folly land of flawed humanhood… for decades upon centuries… & with enough of the right kind of TLC, anything will eventually bounce back. Miracles are not as uncommon as one might think. Yes, everything heals, mends, regenerates, realigns, rebalances, recovers & restores, despite odds. That said, knowing all is not lost… I give you my razor-sharp analysis of the current state of affairs, with no holds barred, through an unrefined lens. Enjoy!

No doubt, our species has indeed gone rogue. The Earth is riddled with bizarre behavior, criminal conduct, & unruly, unkempt, uncouth, unraveling citizens. It’s no secret. It’s evident everywhere you turn. I’d like to believe in the inherent goodness inside of people, but the harsh truth of widespread subpar mediocrity remains. Our innate goodness is like a ball of rising sun… it is at first dim & as it rises to its greatness, it will either shine brightly, high in the sky, for all to see, bestowing light & nourishment or get clouded by fog behind a curtain of clouds & darken the whole damn party with a dull damp haze.

We may all have inherent goodness, but not all people let it shine. At our human core, we are a species of predators & prey & no sugar-coated theory about how we are saints & saviors will convince me otherwise. Sorry, but I’m not sorry. Folks everywhere have this lackluster laissez-faire attitude where they just roll with the punches until they get knocked out for the count, & just give up getting up. We are born creators… not pawns along for some ride on some gameboard of a dictator God monster with a pointy staff & a naughty & nice list. A rather large portion of the population does not seem to get that, though. Our species is suffering here. The universal omnipotent force of eternal Divine energy (God) is neutral & unbiased. It co-creates with us according to our freedom of will via our choices. If we do not exercise our free will, someone else, government, religion or some man-made machine will exercise it for you. And at that point, there are no guarantees it will be the best choice for all involved.

God damn it, we are in control of what we choose to think, feel, perceive, believe & focus on. This is the seat of the “freedom of will.” Remember people: what we focus on, we expand, & then thus experience. What we resist, persists, because we are thus focusing on it via disdain. It’s not rocket science. If a person wants to keep harping on the same thing over & over & over & over & over, they will continuously get the same results… disdain, disappointment, dysfunction, dis-ease. This disdain is essentially proving over & over & over again, their focused crappy theory, & thus the belief, being insidiously endorsed. Stop that! It’s YOUR brain… no one else’s. CHOOSE to see things another more improved way! Things will then thus change. It’s law. How we perceive things, people & circumstances is ALWAYS our choice. It’s not what happens to you, it’s how you handle it, perceive it, respond to it, comply with it. Here’s a bright idea>>> sway it all in your favor! Imagine>> (think, feel, visualize) the best outcome, the most beneficial dynamic, harmony, synergy, advantageous coincidence! Why? BECAUSE YOU CAN! #Boss

Last weekend a young man asked me how I remain so positive. “It seems all the negativity in the world doesn’t affect you,” he said. I had no more than a minute with the young man so I offered this: It’s all about where you choose to put your attention, and I choose to be happy.”

OWN YOUR POWER Card

by: Indie Goes Software App via Self Love Oracle Cards

{Changing the world is easier after one has learned to change oneself. Be the change you wish to see, & your world will shift.

We play victim whenever we want to deny the steps we can take to change the situations around us. This is not to say that we are never at the mercy of circumstances outside of ourselves. But this card reminds you that there is always something you can do, even if it’s to change your attitude and responses, and to start making different choices.

Everything we face in our lives is a consequence of past personal and collective choices that we’ve made. It is sometimes too easy to throw up our hands and claim that there’s nothing else that we can do. Well, whatever we say is so, becomes so.

We need to become aware that we always have power over our choices. If we feel that we are forced into certain decisions because of circumstances, we may actually be shutting our doors and denying our responsibility of searching for alternate solutions or making a stand against coercion.

This card is a strong invitation to start looking at what you can do, not what you cannot. Take responsibility for where you are and look at all of your options, including those that you may not have considered before. You can then reclaim your power to determine where you’re going.}

That said, I know there are those of us who have harnessed & are working towards or have already thus mastered the Law of Attraction, the power of positivity, of laughter, of snapping back quickly. Kudos to those of us who keep our eyes on the prize & behave accordingly, seeking mindful living, health & wellness, gratitude, & a depth of greater understanding. Furthermore, I believe very strongly that men & women can behave graciously toward each other when prompted. There are most definitely good people in the world. We can be courageous instruments of peace when called. When the situation heralds a heroic deed, hero or heroes incarnate, humans will drum up & gather in the name of justice & salvation.

We will rescue & restore our fellow man to safety & security til the cows come home & then some. But that is instinct. Our powerful capabilities lie deep within us to save each other, gain triumph & victory over apparent “evil forces” outside ourselves.  But what about the inherent evil that has been cultivated, bred & spread within our hearts, minds & bodies for centuries on end? We are enemies of ourselves most of all, victimizers & victims to the max. And THIS, my friends… is what this book is about.

At worst, humanoids are creatures of lust & hate, dreamers with dark hearts that have secret penchants for a spectrum of poisonous indulgences. A fast food drive thru can be found almost around every single corner in most towns & cities worldwide. I heard a guy say once, that in certain parts of Florida, there are more “Pain Clinics” than McDonalds’. America has multiple chains of smoke shops & vape stores. {More than 3.6 million CHILDREN used E-Cigs in 2018. 1 in 5 high school students use E-Cigs}

TODAY, as I write these words, the Surgeon General sounded an ALARM on Vaping. The U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, issued a WARNING, calling it an “epidemic” & a massive threat to public health. “Our youth & teens are in serious jeopardy,” he stated. The carcinogens & mind-altering nicotine in these pens & pipes are harmful to the developing brain, lungs, throat & overall health. It might not be LSD, bong hits, E pills, or kegger parties these days, but kids today sure do know how to inhale that almighty nic fit saturated vaper cloud. (guilty!)

We have multiple chains of liquor stores, hookah lounges, kava & kratom bars, weed bars, wine bars, breweries, vineyards, sex shops, strip clubs, brothels, casinos, addictive gaming & gambling outlets, pharmacy after pharmacy, kill stations we call farms that mass produce animals for all the products we lavishly require daily.

We consume sugar, soda, meat, dairy & high fructose corn syrup way past any reasonable limit. Our bodies fight & kick & scream daily. Our bodies work so hard to keep us healthy, toxin free, energetic, disease free, limber, flexible, strong & restorative. But we challenge it constantly. We abuse our bodies, poison our minds, sting our hearts with anger, fear, frustration, stress, resentment, jealousy & self-loathing. The human being is a bittersweet specimen. While compassionate & kind, we are reckless & irrational. While grateful & generous we are blamers & thieves. We all live on the same block.

Not to mention, regarding the “hate” part, our jails, prisons, penitentiaries, work release programs & juvenile detention centers are all overflowing, over crowded, backed up & more populated with inmates than ever before in human history.

Did someone say: “Prison Industrial Complex?”

That said, adding to the greed machine we call government, there is basically a bounty on each & every one of those heads, to keep them locked up, or caught in the system. Our so called “fair” judicial system conveniently referred to as the “Dept of Justice,” was designed with all kinds of deliberate pitfalls so to be a revolving door for the sake of business.

To validate this even further, Prisons have now become privatized. Prisons have owners, investors & people that buy stock in them. When they are built or expanded, it is a new space that needs inventory. So, from a business standpoint, these jail houses must then secure & proliferate product which will generate profit. Bodies are their most valuable product, convicted criminals their pay dirt, recidivism their Ace in the hole. The Court system, the prisons & local politicians are all in bed with each other, for a buck. Keeping the supply high, with arrests & convictions that never end. Keeping everybody’s belly full & pockets fat. It’s the name of the game.

{According to the Vera Institute of Justice, incarceration costs an average of more than $31,000 per inmate, per year, nationwide. In some states, it’s as much as $60,000. Taxpayers foot the bill for feeding, housing and securing people in state and federal penitentiaries. May 19, 2017}

Our prisons are chock full of men & women alike who repeatedly commit crimes against their neighbor as a lifestyle. Whether it is due to low income, poor education, ghetto demographics, OR NOT, there is a metropolis of all types of people turned criminals who are hemmed up in the system for all types of reasons. Crime doesn’t discriminate. Humans are prone. Black, white, blue, red, rich or poor. From dirty cops, to the “shooter,” to the Ponzi scheme frauds, the backyard gun slingers, dope smugglers, petty thieves, aggravated assaulters, prostitutes, johns, drunks, rapists, molesters, killers, drug addicts, sex traders, terrorists, bullies, bank robbers. And what’s worse? Rehabilitation for these folks is scant. Prisons more likely produce droves of people in & out of that revolving door that are better criminals than when they got there.

When they are released, most of these people barely have “reintegration” programs, “anger management” classes, therapy, counselling, job placement assistance, support groups… especially for men. Rather, they have Parole Officers who are waiting to violate them. These guys have children & families they must learn how to reengage with. Most convicts have poor coping skills for real world living. Everything is provided for them in the “three hots & a cot” realm of robot lock up. Not to mention, they have built walls behind those walls, to likely protect themselves. Hearts have been hardened. Nothing good ever came from a cold, or closed, broken, barrier laden, armored heart.

Incarceration in the United States is one of the main forms of punishment and rehabilitation for committing felony and other offenses. We have the largest prison population in the world, and the highest per-capita incarceration rate. In 2016 in the US, according to stats floating around online, there were 655 people incarcerated per 100,000 population. This is the US incarceration rate for adults or people tried as adults.

Do you really know who your neighbors are? Many people just pass time. They just sit around & wonder why they are nowhere with nothing, while they binge watch another endless paradoxical drama likely saturated with distorted realities. Instead of striving to be better, more enhanced versions of themselves, they breed mixed feelings, laziness, lack, limitation, loss, worry, fear, & bad genes of dysfunctional stories, bad habits & conflicted programs. They continue the unsavory trends of delusion.

People seem to have this diluted sense of self. They grovel at the foot of a dictator God called “He” & then run around town with a false sense of sovereignty. This counterfeit sovereignty eventually fails them because they have forfeited personal responsibility, as if some great deity in the sky is in autonomous control. Then they blame God when something bad happens. Religion is a big toilet that needs to be flushed. Spirituality is what’s real. Spirituality is being true to the Divinity in oneself. Religion is a business. Religion is a busted bicycle that has a wobbly tire & only one set of brakes that half ass work. Spirituality is an internal quiet commitment to honor the God in yourself & everyone else equally. Hence the meaning of the word: Namaste.

Amen, means: Yes! In this case, Yes! to the lies. Yes! to a corpse hanging from a tree that came to save us all from our sinner selves. Jesus Christ is a historic figurehead whom with which likely lived on this Earth with a sincere sacred mission to make an instrumental mark on humanity. And YES! He did learn & develop via the Eastern teachings of Eastern religion, the Kabbalah & the Great Ancient & wise nomads that fasted & meditated, practiced Yoga & Tantra & Zen life & essentially are responsible for the Zen culture trends that we have today. Unlike what the Bible reveals, this Jesus savior dude studied at the University of Buddha.

WWJD? This slogan is viral because Jesus was a perfect example of what a person should look like, when living out a righteous life path here, in this earthly 3-dimensional reality. Why does religion feel this compelling need to keep spinning this died, buried & rose from the dead tale? Why is this crucifixion story at the center of every single service & sermon? Christian radio stations beat a dead horse over & over & over with this hanging on a cross story. It’s nauseating & exhausting. He died for your sins? Took away the sin of the world? God gave his only son… to save us from ourselves? Great… let’s be done with it then. Give it a rest. Let’s move on.

This is my daily affirmation: (Say it along with me!)

“The Sovereign sword of my conscious awareness cuts through the mire of disdain and disorder and dysfunction and disconnection and disillusion and disaster, disappointment, & discontent. I free unhealthy attachments, obsessions & what no longer serves me here. I release all expectations & live in the now fully. I am seated within perfect love & illumined by the God Force, empowered by peace. Wellness is my eternal state. Warm vibrations clothe me. I trust the processes of life. I know the blessed Universe is my sole provider. The Universe is my unlimited source. Abundant prosperity is a constant flow even within the ides of polarity. My soul is bright, glowing & on fire with a passion for expanding love, light & prosperous gain. I am rich, rewarded & worthy of recognition. I am a channel for ascension on Gaia & an intermediary transmitting the promise of peace to all warrior souls. I am cleansed, purified & sanctified within the moment of now. All is forgiven. All is Grace. Resentments fade. I am free!”

Life is all about belief. It’s all that matters. It’s from where all else stems. It is packed with all the nooks and crannies that compose & comprise a life of experiences. The region of us where thoughts roam & frolic is the brain. Picture a big giant grassy backyard where a bunch of different kinds of kids & dogs are at play just jumping & frolicking about, splishy splashy through the sprinkler or tossing a ball. These thoughts that roam & frolic are the individual threads that weave the fabric of our beliefs. What we then thus believe, we live out & experience thereof.

Some of these beliefs are buried. Ingrained so deep into the depths of our subconsciousness that we are totally unaware that they are undermining our good or sabotaging our greatness in the present. Consequently, we are baffled. We may blame others or circumstances for our undesirable experiences, totally disregarding that whatever occurs in our personal landscape is due solely to our beliefs, whether visible to the rational mind or not.

The consciousness of our minds is a tricky animal. It is invisible & intangible & so many times a challenge to see, grasp or hold into place. It could thereof be rather easy to dismiss or not take responsibility for. But be advised… the multifaceted & layered dimensions of our consciousness are very important for us to unveil, garden, tidy up, spring clean, weed, prune, groom, thus maintain, preserve, protect & praise. Our beliefs are seated in that backyard. Those beliefs are the culprits to all that we experience & express, create & manifest. It’s very crucial to know what kinds of beliefs they are. So rationally, we may rewire as needed. Realigning ourselves to what is true, right, useful & practical & positively progressive from all the wrong concepts we may have been taught, trained or brainwashed to believe from past programs & patterns & people’s flawed projections & shoddy or shady influences.

I really do believe that I have more goodness in my pinky finger than many choice folks have in their whole body. By no means, does this imply I’m a flawless little Angel. It just means this: murderers & rapists may love their mothers & pets, have gardens & know how to whip up a good bowl of pasta but, that doesn’t mean they are good people. Redeeming qualities in a psychopath don’t make him any less of a savage force of reckless behavior. I am a firm believer in the inherent goodness in people, but not all people tap into it. They basically run around their whole lives with screaming potentials (literally) dying to be fulfilled. Dr. Wayne Dyer talks about having music left in you, never getting your song out. Droves of folks live & die without ever tuning in.

Or, people run around, rather, nourishing the darkness within them instead of the light & their inherent goodness lies dormant until their soul is set free at physical death. Then, they get yet another go of it via reincarnation, or they meld into some ethereal energy abyss where they can just be miserable the whole live long day in some false ether world miscreated on the astral plane somewhere. Don’t quote me on that, but you know what I mean.

I am not in the business of hurting people, shaming people, condemning or criticizing, I am in the business rather, of justice & truth, plain & simple. That said, multiple individuals in the natural proprietary blend of the world population are oppressive, unloving, cruel, misguided, greedy, self-absorbed, self-centered, & self-serving. Like an antiquated black & white horror movie eerily flickering in the corner of a creepy dark room, the people of the world have been hypnotized like zombies, strung up like slaves, & utterly brainwashed, in a most ghastly tormented way. We have built & bred a culture & civilization of suffering, sickness, disease, pain, fear, heartache, anger, violence, injustice, backwards beliefs, unnecessary sacrifice, blindness, numbness, limit, lack, self-loathing & self-pity that weakens our spirit, drains our bodies, corrupts the files of our minds & sucks our souls right out like a villainous vacuum cleaner.

Who are the ringleaders? Who is the captain? Who is the sheriff of Shitshowtown? Well, anyone who exercises, & enforces leadership & authority with fear & control, deprivation, intimidation, manipulation, tyranny, dichotomy, bureaucracy, fascism, racism, sexism, terrorism, war, destructive division, & harmful competition. The insidious implementation of these morally bankrupt things/thugs has turned our world into a breeding ground of humans that are significantly subpar & devoid of honest principles & authentic intentions.

The planet has now been decorated with a bunch of misunderstood mutants holding on to each other for dear life. We live in a land of crawlers instead of walkers. The planet is strewn with people who believe their own lies & concede to produce & perpetuate whole generations of pissants & Pinocchios. The sludge is beginning to float to the top. It is time to call it like it is. Don’t mind if I do.

Some might say I need sensitivity training, but I say:

We come through our parents. We are not them. They are the channel through which we travel here to coexist & co-create with others upon this planet earth in a 3 dimensional reality that has been set forth for us to grace. That said, let’s acknowledge also that we are free then, to be ourselves, to behave as we see fit, & honor the integrity of our individuality &/or soul calling despite “where we came from,” despite our genes, despite our family customs & traditions, & most of all… despite what false programs, sinister dramas, toxic thought patterns or flawed belief systems have been super imposed on us most times without our permission. Subliminally, subconsciously, or blatantly ingrained by parents, guardians, family, friends, teachers, media, government, religion, & advertisement, each & every one of us have been influenced in our youth. By the time we all reach a certain human age, we become aware of the power of personal choice. We each have a turning point from child to adult where we each learn that we are solely responsible for what we create for our selves & lives. At which time, we can either reject that or accept that, & develop & move forward accordingly. Blame game, or proactive co-creator? Your choice, friends.

THE BOOK:

What’s in it? A current, relevant, brutally honest, playfully amusing, brilliantly badass sketch of the human condition. Saturday Night Live anyone?

An awakening is at hand for the human species, & this non-fiction stack of pages is a reality check which details how we must rise to that occasion with a sword of optimal awareness. America’s underbelly is real. The world’s underbelly is real. The hoax, the lies, the mistruths. The state of our affairs. The state of our union. Civil unrest. Domestic & international unrest. A hard look at the corruption of our culture. Animal rights. Equal rights. Men & women & the #MeToo movement. The Opioid fiasco. The Twelve Step Program revisited. The need for a mass school curriculum & education system overhaul. Big Pharma. Big Agribusiness. The Military Industrial Complex. The Prison Industrial Complex. Politics gone rogue. Religion versus spirituality. History exposed. Ancient truths versus the world today. Sex redefined. The age of Super Porn. The Dark Web. Climate change. Environmental protection. Green living. Food awareness. The importance of Moderation. What is a Vegan influenced lifestyle. Sickness & disease prevention. Depression, suicide, karmic detox, explained. Law of Attraction. Positive affirmation. A resource guide for everything under the sun. This book is infused, with entertaining personal references, a smart mouth & nothing less than… self-empowerment, on every level.

Revealing beyond your wildest dreams, you won’t be able to take your eyes off it. Don’t spend one more salivating second serenaded by surfacy pomp. Treat yourself to the TRUTH, today, friend, you deserve it!

Rules of Edible Engagement

LqZP1EMN“Eat Food, not too much, mostly plants” is what our species has done for hundreds of thousands of years. It’s good universal advice that is timeless & has been proven effective.

Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. Eat food that comes from a plant, not made in one. Food that doesn’t need a label is what nature intended. Pluck it off the vine, off the tree, up from the dirt if ya can.

If you are gonna choose to eat meat, treat it like a treat, eat it once a week. Consider dairy alternatives. Purchase only local organic humanely farm raised fare. Regard seafood as sacred. Behave accordingly.

elvgren-picture_076

Eat deliberately to enjoy & savor texture, flavor & the moment to moment experience. Eat s-l-o-w-e-r. Take your time. Try to spend as much time enjoying the meal as it took to prepare it. Appreciate your bites. Chew mindfully. Pick out a smaller plate, bowl or cup. Eat in smaller portions. Stop before your full.

Enjoy food in good company. Eating is a celebration with others, a tribute to your health. Recognize in the moment how food is serving your nutritional needs. Praise the beauty of its nourishment. There is pleasure in eating. Sit, cherish, relax & chew cheerfully.

Be in bright spirits with merry thoughts. Cultivating a relaxed, non-punitive attitude toward food is essential to the dissemination of nutrients & the assimilation of their benefits. Being anxious about eating is not the ideal. Make your everyday default practice, one that is nurturing.

“All things in moderation, including moderation” —Oscar Wilde.

That said…break the rules once in a while. Go ahead & share dessert with guiltless zest!

Eat many colors. Propose a toast. Say grace. Always tip your server generously & always hug the Chef! Bon appetit! Cheers!

Vegan Wild Child: A Day in the Life

2ef1a084a484926aed62a5b2c302e31d

I eat Root veggies for grounding & connection to Mother Earth. I eat raw Ginger, & local raw honey for a zing & a zang. I eat orange & lemon for a quik pop of C. I eat lovely leafy shades of GREEN for protein & overall nutrition. Berries are brain food. Garden veggies are the energy of the golden sun. Bananas are not just for monkeys. A swig of apple cider vin for PH balance. A probiotic is a “smooth move.” lol. Turmeric is a wonder drug-spice. All fresh herbs are living antioxidants. Chia seeds expand with exceptional essential benefits….so I add them to calcium-fortified almond milk & shake it up! Happy hummus is my spreadlicious best friend. Olive oil, & avocado keep my skin radiant… not to mention they are packed with Omega 3s, good fat & well over 20 nutrients in that great guac ya just made 🙂 Grainy toast is my guilty pleasure, with a touch of melty creamy coconut oil & a sprinkle of sunflower seeds. And, oh Romeo, oh Romeo where for art thou… with my delicate squares of sexy sea salted Twilight Cacao…? I wish to pair them so perfectly with a dark inky plum red Zin-tabulous vino with that fruit forward flash, my love!

The Last Meal

The Last Meal> BFF: Bacon & Eggz

Back in Culinary school, we were asked to name the “Last Meal” we would choose to have if we were gonna pass on in a few hours. If we were given the option to enjoy one last delicious Hoo- Ra before we sail off into the sunset to meet the Big man in the sky….just… what would it be?

ronswanson4Ya know what my answer was every time someone ever asked me that? Bacon & over easy eggs on buttered toast. Hands down.

“Dippy eggs” we used to call them as a term of endearment for the poor little unhatched chic sweet peas. Then we have the slathered melty, buttery, good ole polka dotted wonder white, nutrient-free, bleached fake fortified bread product…lol. And at last… we have thee most elite guilty pleasure of all to ever to hit the palate or plate stage…

Thee RockStar of every kitchen across the globe: BACON.

I am its #1 fan, believe me. Just like the fat kid that loves cake I love bacon, just as much as the next guy. Crispity, greas-pity, crumble in your mouth-watering; lick your lips sizzling; mini orgasm in a pan frying: BACON. Geez, it’s even fun & satisfying to muse about.

october-1997-he-looked-good-seven-years-tibet-laBecoming Vegan & giving up bacon, is just like dating a super model or Matthew McConaughey (for the ladies) & then… breaking up forever…to never again partake in the fantastic pleasure of their acquaintance ever… ever…. again. All that’s left is a dreamy memory, a fantasy of what was, & pretty much… a skeleton in the wind. Then the usual forward motion protocol… is typically to compare every next person to the god or goddess template, who will essentially never really truly compare. We’ve all had that template person at one point, I’m sure.supermodel-perfection-1419587607

Well, in this case, BACON is that template person, & it’s not the easiest break-up to shake. We as a society…revere it. We put bacon on a pedestal, & have praised its greasy glory for many moons. We definitely are a peculiar brand of people, I must say.images-1315baconfestwinner

.mw-bv926_breakf_mg_20140304230342This photo is fondly named: “Breakfast in America.” Wow, right?

487238618

But, look how simple… Look how beautiful…

Eggs, butter, bacon & cheese are RockStars in my book. As a Culinary Artist, moving forward, I find it depressing to not be able to utilize these essential ingredients to every Chefs forte. But….oh well. I will suck it up, I guess. It is a small sacrifice for a morally worthwhile very significant cause. Saving God’s creatures is King. On the ethically-correct scale…preserving Mother Nature & respecting all life is Top Dog. I’m not a jellyfish with no backbone who can’t sit up straight or practice a little healthy self-discipline for the sake of the greater good. I don’t just talk a good game cause I can. I talk it, cause I honor the unspoken code of loyalty to mankind & integrity of personhood. My money is where my mouth is. Is yours?

I am a bonified 100% American Chef trained foodie who loves & appreciates ALL cuisines, & If I am willing to go Vegan for the sake of: service to the Planet…..then….so can you, my friend…so-can-YOU.

Not sayin’ it’s gonna be a walk in the park or a sail down the waterslide….but it’ll be an adventure worth every mini attitude adjustment made. The cleaned up karma alone, is one valuable long-term benefit to look forward to. With regard to a spiritual standpoint…due to the elevation of vibrational frequency via the consumption of vibrant plant-based foods, both personal & planetary karma will be reversed naturally.

All in the scheme of things, like a series of events that follow one after the other in sequence, the significant behavioral changes that take place due to a newly launched or practiced Vegan lifestyle…result in a new set of circumstances. “Cause & effect” is altered when the new invisible energetic trends fall like dominoes through the portals of planetary improvement. Thus… a new found freedom transpires. Freedom from the ball & chain of outdated toxic programs & patterns. Wonderbread be gone!

Breakin’ the unbreakable chain is a worthwhile feat… for the advent of a New World order is at hand, & the dawn of a better day is upon us. Essentially, the toilet is getting flushed of all the substandard practices of a formerly morally corrupt human society.

Keeping in mind that the decision to embark upon a Vegan lifestyle can be a gradual change for those going at their own pace… progress, not perfection would be appropriate to insert here. ANY small change is contributing to the welfare of mankind. The greater good surely appreciates all effort & steps toward positive change. Going Vegan cold turkey (lol) very well may be a challenge in such ways. However, effort & small adjustments do indeed add up to bigger ones eventually, for sure. Mini changes are changes too. Adjusting one’s self, life, daily habits & patterns may take some time & concerted effort. Prioritizing accordingly might indeed be called for…a Re-Eval as they say. Even a certain death may seem to take place. Grieving the loss of not only cherished edible delights but also the fond memories that go with them.

All the lavish warm holidays spent gathered around a juicy browned turkey by candle lite with all the tidings & trimmings of a meat & dairy infused love fest. The Sunday dinners at Mama Lucia’s house with a big lush bowl of spagetts & meat-a-ballz-a. I for one… grew up in an off the boat Italian family that did not take no for an answer! lol. One did not sit at the table with my grandfather at the helm &….not partake of all the hard work & effort of my Mom-Mom Zapparelli & her kitchen entourage. That would be disrespectful! The cold hard stare could make you cry… lol. So yes, many of us will have to make certain calls at certain times…understandable. Life certainly is not black & white. It looks to me like life actually has a pretty extravagant full-color 3-dimensional scheme like OZ. So yea, use your best judgment. People matter too…

hqdefault

But, oh will I miss….that endearing paper thin prosciutto puffed up upon the slate plate, the creamy decadence of French Brie, the tart crumble of ripe herb rolled Chevre, Spanish Manchego aged to perfection, the smoky or nutty caramelly flavor profiles of  gratifying Gouda & the sharp & lovely bite of champagne & cheddar together. Not to mention, the superior smothering skills of magnificent Mozzarella!!

What else will be missed? The Antipasti spread charming the pants off a good gathering of precious pairings of people, wine, brew & spirits off the deck or by the pool & bonfire. The backyard grill-outs that coined dogs & brats & burgers king of the food chain. Who doesn’t love love love wings & football? The New Years Eve after party bacon & eggs at 3am, that fantastic smoker out back by the barn, KFC, Taco Bell Grande, Micky-D’s, Mc-Everything!

Cook-OUT, Pizza Pizza Pizza! Mom’s homemade meatloaf, Prime Rib at the club or convention. Succulent sauced low n slow cooked baby-backs with coleslaw, mac salad, or potato salad. Biscuits, sausage & gravy,  or (S.O.S.) creamed chipped beef. Southern fried genius, corned beef & cabbage, pulled pork, beef brisket, jerky, BBQ & stew. Quiche, Crepes, souffle, creme brulee, mid-rare grass fed filet. Cheesy mac, cheesy fries, cheese steak, cheese sauce, cheese curls, cheese balls, a loaded baked potat-a, a chicken Pot-Pie. Baked ziti, lasagna, ravioli, parmesan encrusted everything. French toast, French Crullers, buttercream frosting, pudding, sundaes, yogurt, m&m’s……. WTF???

Not fair. I get it. lol.

Vegan Challenge: Day 5/Nutritional Awareness

237a75233130d093c86e9303f78d18b2

Well, folks, it is Day 5 of my 7-Day Vegan Challenge & I lost 3lbs already, I feel much lighter & brighter & quite magical, I must say. I do miss eggs, yogurt, sour cream & cheeze most of all, I must admit, however, I haven’t had a field trip to the whole foods market as of yet though either. Exploring the zillions of multiple options that are available as replacements for meat & dairy….is an essential step within the Vegan initiation process

.veg-grocery-compilation

On my way to Veganhood! Join me, guys… on the Freedom march!download-5meat_substitute_vegetarian_deli_slices_lightlife-2

Freedom from carrying the weight of “the sin of mankind” on our backs. Draggin’ the dusty crusty Karmic influx of poor choices & greedy gorging around with us throughout our lives. Off with their heads, I say! The slaughter-man should taste his own medicine. The senseless slaughtering of animals is mass murder. These massacres take place hidden from the general population, daily. That is not something that is morally righteous. In fact, it is WRONG. And, I am not afraid to say it.

We must practice Veganism wisely though, & that means that it is essential to our mental & physical well-being to have vitamin & nutrient resource knowledge. Veganhood might be a challenging lifestyle change for some, especially at first. But it is well worth the health benefits, moral kudos & all around Auric amplification. You will GLOW brighter guaranteed. You will grow stronger with vitality, energy, endurance & with a tougher resistance to sickness or disease via the natural immunity boosters A Vegan diet provides. Come on guys…it’s really, a no-brainer.

antioxidantd

My recommendation with regard to meat/dairy replacement items is to allow yourself the allotted time it takes to investigate, explore, experiment & essentially taste many different versions, variations & brands of the vegan/vegetarian substitutes. Keep a little fun pocket book list or journal to document your preferences. That little book will likely be your most valuable resource in the coming weeks & months, until you taste your way to acclimating new habits which blossom into second nature choices just like when we would choose our favorite go-to trusted brands of meat & dairy, without a second thought. Eg: Oscar Meyer, Hellman’s, Kraft, Velveeta, Breyers, Perdue.

After some healthy research on Vegan cheese & egg substitutes…I found that this next brand has the most stars & is a top-rated Vegan product with an excellent reputation. Not to mention…who can resist the name! Follow Your Heart

As previously mentioned, with regard to being nutritionally informed & nutrient sound, as a Virgin Vegan….(as I was called last nite by a co-worker….lol)…..It is NECESSARY to be well aware of vita-resources.

Excellent resource guide for Vitamins/Nutrients/Minerals for the Vegan Diet

I also do feel inclined to mention & emphasize the importance of B-12. I would recommend taking a b-12 supplement whether Vegan or not. Our bodies don’t produce enough of this naturally & we do not always ingest it from foods enough either.

A slight deficiency of vitamin B-12 can lead to anemia, fatigue, mania, and depression, while a long term deficiency can potentially cause permanent damage to the brain and central nervous system. Vitamin B-12, or Cobalamin, is naturally found solely in animal foods and thus vegans have to supplement their diets with fortified foods or supplements.

Vegan Challenge: Day 3

fast_food_collageDay three of my 7-day Vegan challenge & I am not gonna lie…on my evening leisure walk to the local shopping center last nite, I felt completely assaulted by the scent filled breezes. As I approached the entrance-way to civilization….I noticed the smell of fried food in the air, the smell of tacos from “El Cerro Grande,” the smell of chicken from “Buffalo Wild Wings” & the smell of an almost salacious beef fantasy… piping thick chimney-like smoke out into the atmosphere via “Cookout.” Not fair! Not fair! Not fair to a Vegan, I say!

these-fast-food-food-facts-willmake-you-wanna-go-vegan1Let me try & help us all out a bit. I plan to continuously expand & grow within this realm, belief system, community, & conscious awareness. I will post links accordingly. It is circa 2017, there is way more availability & accessibility & affordability to this Vegan/Vegetarian lifestyle than ever, ever before, folks… in every city, town, state, community nationwide & worldwide.

Many cultures have actually been practicing these Vegan & Vegetarian principles, for not only decades but also centuries. The truth shall prevail! The Lion will indeed lay with the Lamb, & justice will be served. Which simply means that everybody will live peacefully together. I am fully aware that there will always be a natural food-chain in place with regard to the Animal Kingdom, for the purpose of population control & the harmony of the ecosystem. However, the senseless killing of creatures for greedy gain as opposed to survival or necessity, will in due time cease to exist. It is against Universal Law & producing mass karmic backlash for our collective human evolution & must be stopped for the sake of humanity if we are to protect & preserve our Race on Earth. With regard to the Lion/Lamb metaphor, the Bible quotes: “None will harm or destroy another on my entire holy mountain, for the land will be as full of the knowledge of the Lord as the sea is filled with water.” Isaiah 11:9 The knowledge will be Veganism, if you will. Get VEGUCATED!

Going Vegan solves so many world issues it’s ridiculous. If the world went Vegan, it would create an enormous chain reaction, in a variety of streams. On a grand scale, it is a perfect solution for world hunger. It is the most superior proactive form of environmental protection. Veganism can prevent & eliminate illnesses, diseases, the necessity for countless doctors, the overuse & addiction to endless chemicals & drugs, make the endangerment of any species obsolete…. & it will ultimately promote the Earth’s utmost preservation. If we all became Vegan today, we would change the game significantly. The word Significantly doesn’t even scratch the surface regarding the positive impact we would have on the dysfunctional interrelation of all things causing massive problems in our worldly system. We would reverse the probable demise of our Earth as we know it. We would essentially Save the Planet! We would be heroes. True heroes. You can choose to be a hero today! Get Vegucated! GoVegan now!

I am not “religious.” I do not believe in organized religion, even though I had once called myself “Christian” 20 years ago. I was studying Christianity & Church hopping while participating in the singing of praises part @ any service that had music. It was fun & interesting & was a phase I had to indeed travel through to get to where I am today. However, the Bible contains phrases that I do believe genuinely are relevant to the campaign for Universal peace & love that I practice & live today. Plus, Christians make up a huge percentage of the world. It’s nice to be able to refer to books & customary traditions or beliefs that people can relate to. My goal is to reach people on a Universal level, no matter age, race, religion, creed or culture. We are all human beings from Planet Earth. Period.

images-6Muslims, Hindus, & the cultures of India are predominately Vegetarian/Vegan & have practiced belief systems that generally view all animals as sacred creatures to be honored not harmed or murdered. The Hare Krishnas practice “Krishna Consciousness” & are strictly Vegetarian.

When I was a street musician hippie chick back in the 90s traveling cross country, we used to get fed in every city via the Hare Krishna Temples. foodforlifesignThey welcome everyone as long as you leave your shoes at the door, & observe their 45-minute spirit infused service. The experience is inviting & uplifting even if you don’t understand the language. It’s all about raising vibration there. The service is decked out in fresh flowers detailing ornate portraits of Blessed Deities, Lord Krishna, Hindu Gods & Goddesses. The beautiful beaded, jeweled, & gemmed stylings of this handcrafted luxurious temple for sacred worship…. are surely a sight for sore eyes. They dance, they sing, they speak in tongues it sounds like…& they praise the bounty & beauty of Krishna! The word Krishna means: “Energy of God.” The energy of God does not approve of the murder of animals.images-7

The Hare Krishna Book of Vegetarian Cooking by Adiraja Dasa <this cookbook is probably one of the best Vegetarian cookbooks ever written. Let me tell you, the Hare Krishna’s “Sunday Feast” @ 5pm in every city nationwide, is hands down probably the BEST Vegetarian/Vegan cuisine you will ever taste in your life.

They are master chefs & bakers.download-3 They have mastered the art of Vegan/Vegetarian cuisine. The finest preparations of meat & dairy dishes… pale in comparison to this scrumptious edible Food Art. Straight up. I myself have never tasted anything better. They feed 1000s of people weekly. They bring the food out in giant buckets & large sheet trays. It’s like a long buffet line that you can go through as many times as you want, & it’s like Christmas morning every time, I swear. images-10Every food item is spiced to perfection & half the time you have no idea what you are even eating….but you don’t care, cause that is how amazing it is! Honestly, I haven’t tasted better more enjoyable flavorful food since…& my last barefoot squat on a Krishna Temple floor was just over 20 years ago, now…

And the smell in there!!! INTOXICATING… If you weren’t hungry when you walked through the door, you WILL BE….you can bet on that. Not to mention, the kind of incense these people make… is definitely in a class of its own. Nowhere else can you find incense that smells this good. Believe me, I have tried.

ffl-logo99SUNDAY FESTIVAL / OPEN HOUSE>>

“Delicious, traditional Vedic cuisine was part of the cultural legacy Krishna consciousness brought to Western shores. Eating, like everything else for Krishna devotees is a part of the complete spiritual experience of life.

Sunday sees the doors swung open and hundreds of friends-regulars as well as newcomers-joining in a festival of music, dance, and spiritual discussion and then sharing hearty plates of savories, veggie entrees, sweets, and nectar drinks. Come by on Sunday and relish the taste of the world’s oldest cultural tradition.”

il_340x270-1116555473_f6fjLets talk MILK a second. Got Milk? Well, what I got is much more beneficial and… informative. Discretion is advised:

“We may call the cows who produce milk “mothers,” but they never actually get to be mothers because their babies are taken away from them after birth. And we certainly don’t treat them with the respect that mothers deserve. Cows and other factory-farmed female animals endure being raped repeatedly, and their babies are torn away from them before they’re all killedCows produce milk for the same reason that humans do: to nourish their young. In order to force them to produce as much milk as possible, farmers typically impregnate cows every year using a device that the industry calls a “rape rack.”

The very core of factory farming is breeding. Farmers exploit the female reproductive system to keep up a steady influx of new victims whom they can turn into “products” on supermarket shelves.

Cows are forcibly raped, and calves are deliberately orphaned to produce milk.” —-www.peta.org 

Is Your Food a Product of Rape? <Click Here to find out.

Cows Used for Food <Very informative article on amazing cows.

Without the deliberate and systemic violation of female bodies, the animal agriculture industry would crumble. That includes ALL ANIMALS that are being forced to produce eggs, babies, or milk for human consumption that are in fact raped & forced to breed & reproduce unnaturally. The Animal Product Industry is not just killing animals, but torturing them. This is UNACCEPTABLE & these deplorable inhumane people should INDEFINITELY BE PROSECUTED IN A COURT OF LAW>

There is no excuse for the daily hidden multi-billion dollar motivated flagrant disrespect & dishonoring of animals. It’s not something I believe should be taken lightly. The next time you are roaming down The Dead Animal Isle or the milk, butter, eggs, ice cream, cheese & yogurt Isle of Shame…make sure you see this picture in your mind before you make a contribution to the greedy Animal Terrorists. cows-and-cats-lovers-since-birth

Cows wanna be Moms too. They deserve to bond with their young, raise them & nurture them just like us. They are smart, loving, sweet creatures that are more than suitable pet alternatives. They shouldn’t be treated like a commodity or object only for the purpose of material gain. They are living breathing creatures with a heart beat. So why should their precious lives be assaulted & exploited? It’s not morally correct or humane. Period. End of story.
