Blocks to Ascension: Brainwashed by LIES of our Education System


How brainwashed are we?

One example:

It is plain to see that most human adults are brainwashed since childhood that animals are food for us because we are ‘predator’ or ‘prey’ as taught by British education system.

I have been meeting several very sweet old ladies in the park who love feeding ducks but insist that we are carnivores. They have have no idea why they are feeding ducks instead of biting into their necks. Lovely gentlemen who have no clue that we can survive without eating anal secretions (periods) a.k.a. eggs of a sexually abused bird for breakfast. Beautiful young vegetarian ladies who have no clue that ghee and dairy produce comes from breastmilk forceably extracted by rape of a female to make her pregnant and lactate. And if you tell them, they would rather not hear, if you show them they would rather not see. Because they want ‘peace and positive energy only’ (no matter how false or fake).

What we need is an education system improvement or overhaul.

British education system has drilled into nubile minds of children all over the world that humans are meant to eat animals to maintain ‘balance of nature’ or for ‘survival of the fittest’. We are not taught the truth that we have evolved from primarily frugivore ape-men or monkeys. If our ape relatives consume plants (and maybe a few insects at times because they are not so evolved), should we not have evolved higher up instead of fall down into our ethics, values and lose our heart to become more demonic, more carnivorous or omnivorous and more hunting oriented in the name of ancestral traditions?

By now due to the way humans are supposed to have ‘evolved’ from apes, we should be ‘breatharians’ and living in such harmony with nature that we evolve to non-harming in ways that no animal has before. We should be magical mystics who can shift our reality at our will instead of ‘hunting’, ‘seeking’, ‘wanting’…continually in greed and lust for satiation as other daemons or animals do.

We should be learning how to levitate, how to move objects with our mind and how to manifest things from thoughts instead of letting objects control us and drug our senses in our drunkenness of desires.

Our needs (or demands) for sex, food and constant cravings of entertainment taking over our consciousness 24×7 – a fair bit of time don’t you think are being wasted continually in materialistic pursuits and very very very less left for true spirituality?

Infact western ‘new-agey’ spirituality in the name of abundance manifestation (Tantra, Wicca, Magick and the like) has been brainwashing us that the purpose of spirituality is to make material life better and to help us get ‘more’ and ‘more’ in the name of ‘abundance’ – gratification of our senses, sex, beauty, luxury.

We should use telepathy and teleportation to communicate and travel but we are stuck to laptops and mobiles…dependent on our trains, bus, and air vehicles. Our spirits chained in the heavy garb or vehicles of our bodies (which are illusions) now even more enclosed with further physical vehicles all the time, made of metals blasted out of earth if not chopped trees, toxic plastic and murderous leather or hide-skin.

Instead of relying upon heavy physical technology and materialism of a system based on – consumerism and usurping all our planet’s resources, we should be spiritual and metaphysical now.

The energy we use should be inner energy and not coal, gas and natural resources that we exploit just for our industries. Even windmills, solar panels – why do we need so much energy from nature – mostly for food and housing, that require land, real estate, planet’s explpitation. Food, water and housing – basic needs which are used to control us, to prevent our ascension into spiritual form. Because of our struggles for food and shelter, we have NO TIME for discovering our real self, our spirit and its inner energy and powers. This is how we are controlled – through hardships, suffering and constant stress and strain of daily life draining us out for fear of losing our house, our food, our children.

Over 77 percent of our real estate in form of arable land is used by animal farming industry – we are fooled into thinking we have a human population problem when we have ten times more animals on land than humans, bred only to be killed every single year – appx 80 billion land animals and trillions of fish murdered each year after breeding via rape of females. Naturally we are struggling to survive with world hunger, land and water shortage and deadly diseases in every part of the world.

So why has this happened? Why have we as humans fallen instead of risen with time?

Why have we deteriorated mentally instead of discovered our inner powers and how to unleash our spiritual gifts for liberation of our species and for the rest of the world?

Why have we not evolved, or why have we devolved instead?

Because of one reason – a faulty education system propagated by our lower self mind (our lower nature, coiled kundalini, reptilian brain)) and spread all over the world by the western races of humans (some would say reptilian and insectoid humanoids) who have enslaved the whole world in our present simulation version of the matrix.

Our education system is widely designed to keep us engrossed in this matrix of consumerism, capitalism and materialism. We are learning how to get a job and contribute to the economic system – the sme money based system that wants to sell more things to us thereby exploiting our planet and nature constantly (perhaps with a false sense of ‘responsibly’, ‘sustainably’ now added in, to make us feel better at times).

If we are eager to learn and are taught mindfulness and meditation at any point of time in schools or Reiki classes, or any ashrams – it is only aimed at – keeping us calm, obedient and a perfect slave of the system – compliant to everything and everyone, no complaint, just compliant.

We are taught to obey, to harmonise with the human-centric world around us instead of looking withing ourselves and questioning everything deeply – to be happy. As a result we accept even the most evil, the most senseless and the most grotesque of our systems with a foolish smile on our faces in rapture of meditative bliss.

We are taught to use spiritual powers for improving our material lifestyle, to manifest money, house, sexual relations, family happiness and to stay here itself wthin the matrix – not to develop our inner spirit simply for breaking free from the physical rules of the matrix. (Most people do not even learn anything about spiritual powers, however basic.)

We should truly evolve and not continue to comply with constant social demands to agree with everyone else. Instead of being really stupid apes who have fallen deeper into the abyss of demonism by eating more, wanting more, seeking more from our planet, from our universe, by staying as perhistoric hunters and cavemen and taking energy from earth all the time – we should rise and ascend through spirtuality by learning how to bend the rules of the matrix of physicality.

We should be learning not maths, not english, not science and history from our textbooks and curriculum – but how to turn away from the temptations of the senses and from the distractions of day to day social world that keeps us halllucinating and fooled to believe in whatever we see, smell, taste, tough and hear -this neuro-sensory prison of our mind – of maya – is what we need to break free from.

If our education is a real education, we should first and foremost learn to question reality. To ask – where have we come from, why are we here and who we really are – instead of being taken round and round into scientific theories that prove nothing except the fact that the world is illusory, a program, a mathematical simulation where thoughts create our own reality.

To work with our third eye and higher ascension chakras and release oursleves from the false or artificial reality that is pulled over our eyes continually should be the goal of education. But.. we keep teaching our children the same old lies – of materialism – of physicality, of jobs and career, sex and relationships, cars and superfluous inventions. This is because we are sleeping and dreaming on, rearing on, reproducing and stationed here with the millions of our children we are looking after – grounded into this world – this matrix – …simply because we took the blue pill and passed on the same blue pill to them, our next generation, the new me on the same old earth we.

Ascension Blocks: Selfishness vs Earth Healing

What I keep repeatedly seeing is the same thing as before – the same thing seen years ago, not much change. People DO NOT CARE ABOUT EARTH. They just want to USE earth a little more, regenrate soil so they can exploit it even more…not because they love the planet….they love themselves. They want it all for them – human.

Have we ever done anything selflessly for other creatures, without trying to own land and to exploit the animals and birds…out if just the feeling for the planet, for others – for other species, not just the human race?

No – what we humans want to dig for is FOOD as if we are hungry all of the time. We want to own land, have less factory farming, less fossil fuels, not because we love our planet – it is because we love ourselves. We want to continue ownership of this planet as if our ancestors who killed other animals and destroyed nature through hunting, wars and deforestation were the real deal – they started owning our planet and now we must also buy and sell land, rent and lease land, borrow and steal land.

This land is just another RESOURCE for human beings.

Most people are so crazy about food, they have a lot of extra flesh in their bodies and still eat more out of habit, because three meals a day – we are programmed by the matrix to COMPLY. We do not even need it most of the time. But people these days are ONLY TALKING ABOUT FOOD. Anyone wants to check or test if we can meditate and go without food for a bit of time? No. They want Food System Change – planet based not because they care about animals, but because they want to revolutionise food industry and save resources.

Similarly when I used to organise EARTH Healing Network rituals for healing of planet – to plant crystals into earth, back to our soil or in oceans – to make intentions to heal our planet – all they cared about was – what is in it for ME.
They ALWAYS asked:
Will I get a wish fulfilled?
Will I have romance and sex?
Will I get a job or money?
A car, a house..more fashion?

They would not want to give those crystals away either most of the time, to earth – but keep it for themselves – after all it is worth some money, and it ‘gives wishes’. Not unless I supplied the stones for free. Thankfully I realised we do not even need to buy crystals any more, and contribute or fund exploitation of earth. I stopped trading in them.

But not those people – they came for all those earth healing rituals because to them earth healing meant – HOW TO HEAL OURSELVES BY USING EARTH’S ENERGY.

All the time – it was the same damn thing with people – frustration because it is still the same damn thing. Similar pattern, same story ..continued. But why?

We want to ‘Conserve’ other species, as humans – like Noah in his ark – a couple of them, on or two of each kind, to reproduce, make it two…and then they will establish a new earth…one where they have selected whom to kill, whom to breed, whom to keep in zoos, whom to keep in farms, whom to keep at home. Because thet are humans – the guardians the caretakers, the controllers. ‘Really good human-beings.’

These climate change earth activists too have ZERO interest in earth. They are interested in THEMSELVES. In Human world, their food, their future, their children, their own economy, their systems, their regeneration – not of earth, but to make soil better, to make air better – to make planet more liveable for them to continue being the whole and soul of the planet, the gods and goddesses who walk over earth – as Lords as Ladies – or simply as Humans who need to survive.

Bye bye organised religion, bye bye Wicca – Hello Climate change earth activism – same thing really!

What the hell!

EARTH =HEART is a palindrome for a reason. We do not need to heal it for a reason. To get something out of it is our heart chakra blocked.

Ascension is not happening on this planet here, because we are yet to evolve into a heart centered civilisation as humankind.

Think about it:

I am seeing other Human beings in their Ascended forms, am I?

Lyrans, Sirians, Pliedians, Arcturians – really?

Probably a toad can have an ascended self….why humans only?

But no we talk about Ascended masters and Ascended beings as if they are all going to be human souls ascending into the higher Matrix – more and more ego of humans – more and more self deception. Let us be aware that when we leave this planet we may not meet our human relatives at all in ascended forms or as spirits or beings in other dimensons. Maybe we are going to meet beings who are so different, so uch more wonderful than we imagined, not some humans with some artficial wings in a human owned heaven – but something completely UNLIKE humans.

Not a bearded human faced God, not a human skinned Goddess. Siting up on their divine thrones will be no Laxmi, no Parvati, no Maya in human body or form, no Athena, no Diana, no Shiva with a garland of snakes to control them, no Krishna playing flutes for any Radha or Mirabai…no Archangel Michael with a human body and two great big wings for special effects…gone are all our human lies. All our religions, to them we say goodbye.

No Wicca, No Christianity, No Islam, no Humanity…

No racism, no specieism…no isms, no tys. That will resemble Ascension a bit more. Because we opened our heart – that is where we find our home, not on earth which is illusion. Because we lost our ego and actually let go.

We do not go into ascension looking for a twin flame to have orgasms with, or looking for a star family to proudly go on adventures with in outer space. Those things do not pave our way to ascension. Because those things have nothing to do with our heart center. And nothing to do with healing, of earth, of ourselves or of anyone. For all we know we will only find more illusion, more deception, more fantasy and broken hearts, more trauma, more crime, more technological disasters, more abuse of resources, more planets being ripped apart and their metals and food stolen – more resources consumed to build our crafts… that is not Ascension to me.

If we build our ships we will know for a fact it is through the magic of illusion alone, no one was hurt for it, no planet intruded upon. When we eat food we will know it is only through our mental energy we manifested a substance to feed us with. When we have a soulmate, a family, a network, a twin flame, it will ourely our own heart opening and appearing as family. Not our manifestations of lower self, of unconsciousness, of people and deceptions to leave behind, to cut cords from by recognising our own mistakes, our own past selves. No longer we will crave to get something out of someone, from earth, from another planet, from land, some person, an idol or imagined God or being, from a Master or Goddess like creature. That might be more like Ascension.

Some Blocks to Ascension: Family Values and Social Mores


Sometimes the biggest personal blocks to changing ourslelves, healing and transformation comes from our own attachment to our family and close relatives. We are so used to them, so much in love, so worshipful of our parents, so respectful of relatives, that we end up doing a lot of things they do and copy the same habits that they in turn have been learning from the world around them, from their ancestors, from media, science, schools or even spirituality.

My school teacher in year one itself called for a special class on why we should not be vegetarian, explaining that ‘plants have life too’. It was a popular joke in family dinners that ‘We love animals, because they are so tasty’. So ingrained this was in my psyche since early years that it never bothered me that there was slaughter or exploitation involved against another creature’s free will. In my Wicca degrees gained from a western tradition they ridiculed Jains for not eating meat to educate their Wiccan followers that ‘Harm None Do As Ye Will’ does not extend to animals as it is extreme to be vegetarian, leave alone vegan. Being enchanted with western superiority and power over Indian culture a lot of Indians follow the western spiritualists, philosophers and scientists with a lot of respect. This is not to say that Indian or eastern philosophy is perfect, just that our education system has globally been fashioned around British principles to a toxic extend with English being the most popular language all over the world and degrees in English highly sought after.

My father was a brilliant man and loved the idea of space exploration. he wrote the first ever children’s Hindi science fiction novel in India published in a hugely popular children’s magazine in four parts as recorded in the Indian book of records. He always said, if the world is coming to an end, do not worry, we can always build a spaceship and find a new planet to live on. Because the universe is unlimited and there are infinite starts and planets around. This is what science has taught us through our schools and through our fiction novels, that we can destroy our planet and cooly find a new one to destroy. This to us is a mark of human superiority, our technological prowess.

It appears that there are four types of galactic civilisations according to a very popular system. The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization’s level of technological advancement based on the amount of energy they are able to consume. So Type 1 uses all of the energy of our planet (apparently we humans are aspiring to reach that level), Type 2 will use all the solar system energy, Type 3 galactic energy consumer and so on. This is called progress? Using more, consuming more, taking more? Destroying whatever we see, consuming and eating up our planet, and then the universe itself!

The Kardashev scale was first explained by my very intelligent (brilliant like my father) husband who was an ardent follower of Yogananda and his master Swami Yukteshwar who wrote The Holy Science and described how Yugas are related to scientific advancement. According to their philosophy we are not in Kali-yuga but Dwapar yuga or new age with the darkest of all times behind us. While I like that thought they also say we are ascending in consciousness level as we have invented electricity and now are using more and more energy and advancing scientifically so that we will be even more powerful. Of course I never agreed with this philosophy that Yugas are related to science and technology, to me it is only and only about morality and reducing our impact on earth, being less harmful to the environment and to other beings and to be less demonic as human beings on earth who are destroying our world.

To me Sata yuga has no gadgets or technology at all, these machinations being harmful to nature and not in alignment with the spirit world, who is telepathic and has no need for gadgets. In Sata yuga in my opinion we will meditate and develop our hidden powers of intuition and telekinesis instead of gadgetry and weapons, and be so morally clean that we wouldnever think of using these powers for any kind of evil or harm to others. We will be kind, take nothing much from nature, exist blissfully without needing to chop a single tree or animal, or build a concrete jungle, leave alone mining for metals and blasting away the planet looking for things to consume and build spaceships with. Energy from within channeled from the higher self, not craving for more and more from around us, seems like the only right way of using energy.

Similarly we have been taught to be proud of our skills to manifest success in our material life. New age spirituality has brainwashed us to think ‘more’, want ‘more’, dream ‘more’ and create ‘more’…and so we perform our daily chores but also attract ‘more’ money, wealth, cars, toys, artefacts, jewels, wealth, property…we all want to be billionnaires as feng-shui would want us to be. We learnt how to use special stones and affirmations to ensure we are streaming more and more ‘abundance’ into our lives in the form of financial prosperity. While this teaches us about how to manipulate energy, unknowlingly we are becoming victims of a system that values money and wealth earned through exploitation of our planet. Our cars, real estate and jewels are not ours to keep, they hurt our planet and destroy our eco-system. We should as spiritualists be seeking less not more, letting go, not attracting, be celibate not wanting more sexual relationship success, be a minimalist not someone who consumes more and more.

When I realized this I felt a sense of relaxation as if years of stress of so called ‘success’ has been taken away from my head, the need to ‘balance spirituality with materialism’ as read in so many new age textbooks by leading authors of the western world and ‘tantra’. No longer do I need to enchant relationships into my life, nor do I need to magic more money, luxury or big houses into my little world. I can be content with what I have nd try to let go even more. It never felt good anyways, trying to attract relationships and money or property, something always felt very wrong at a very deep level, adn obviously it felt like I am in illusion, the money and clients illusion, and all my popularity an illusion, a dreamworld or matrix. From then on I am only letting go. At times I have not had a lot of money, probably not enough to eat a grand meal, but strangely I had no hunger either. There are days I had no food and was perfectly healthy and doing my daily chores without fainting. Even avoiding water and food at times was fine for some days when fasting, although it is not for me to advise others to try it. I have not continued this beyond a week or so and still eat a little or have a cup of hot chocolate and some snacks or fruit daily and cook healthy meals for my son, eating leftovers because I hate to waste food. But I am impressed that we actually can live with so very little, we can conserve instead of consume energy, use our inner resources instead of outer ones, even breatharianism is possible.

During Ascension for a lot of us, the veils are being lifted off, we are learning how not to be enamoured by our history:

  • We are learning not to be proud of the wars our forefathers faught that the matrix has taught us to be proud of.
  • We are learning that just because our parents love eating meat or dairy we do not have to be respectful of this heinous practice and must very kindly express ourselves and explain why we disagree withut fighting.
  • We are learning to not reach out for that bottle of spiderkiller spray or how not to swat mosquitoes and flies away, instead of use ethical alternatives and keep our homes clean in the first place.
  • We are learning how not to grow with weedicides and to not throw away weeds but to integrate nature into our gardens.
  • We are learning how to not use trees for wood or paper just because we grow a tree for replacement, but to use ethical alternatives instead.
  • We are learning to use less land, less water, less food just for luxury or pleasure and consume only what we truly require.
  • We are learning how to adopt children and rescue animals to satusfy our parental cravings instead of producing more children.
  • We are learning how to place our crystals back into earth for healing our planet, back into our seas and soil with intentions for healing nature instead of using them for personal wellbeing.
  • We are learning how to use less wifi, less phones, less computers and not be addicted to them or increase their demands in the world by buying more.
  • We are learning to print less paper and save trees, use bamboo or other sustainable paper only if absolutely necessary
  • We are learning to use herbal compost toilets where we can instead of flushing systems and wash our bottoms thoroughly instead of waste toilet rolls made of tree pulp.
  • We are learning to use natural herbs instead of chemicals for washing, bathing, shampoo, dental care.
  • We do not value plastic anymore, we know there was life before it and there will be a better life after it, and without all those synthetic fabrics too.
  • We do not need to travel and go on expensive holidays and fly about, instead we have Greta Thunberg showing us how to not fly a jet plane.
  • We are learning to question the system around us that we created to suit our past level of awarenes
  • We are learning to switch off the television, not engage in politics, stop watching newsfeed all the time, not to gossip about people, not to google up for everything and meditate instead.
    These are all beautiful ascension practices to learn, that help us evolve to a level that is lesss materialistic, less consumeristic, and more ethical.

However that is not all, we also need to learn how to develop our inner spiritual self and sixth sense or Extended Sensory Perceptions for Ascension by seeing the unseen, knowing the unknown. Spiritual awakening is about making our subconcious more conscious. It is about self-witnessing, going within and no longer engrossed in the self deception that the world is any way real. We are wearing off and getting exhausted living in an artificial simulation that some of us recognise is a false world pulled over our eyes. We are looking for answers. And that requires some courage – the courage to let go and challenge everything we have learnt from our ancestors.

Veganism vs Coronaviruses and Other Human Diseases: Part 2

Last week in the first part of this article, we examined a review of approximately 25 scientific research studies and papers to elucidate how animal farming has led to the plethora of degenarative diseases and pathogenic conditions, including the deadly coronaviruses affecting the world today.

A ban on wild animal markets is certainly called for worldwide at the moment, but what about the equally deadly farm animal products supply chain that takes many more lives, including millions of humans, billions of land animals and trillions of sea animals?

Humans die prematurely not only due to ailments caused by direct consumption of meat, eggs and dairy, such as cancers, heart diseases and diabetes, but also due to indirectly contracted influenzas and pathogens by airborne or watreborne contaminants, and due to world hunger which is caused by animal farming too. Large amounts of foodgrains are fed to captive animals being grown and killed to feed the tastebuds of the elite while poor children suffer. In this research paper it is argued that ‘diets that include animal products produce more negative GHIs (global hunger index) than vegan diets. A wide range of diet-related negative GHIs could be reduced significantly if current agriculture was transformed into a predominantly vegan agricultural system’ (Animal (De)liberation: Should the Consumption of Animal Products Be Banned? – Jan Deckers 2016).

While the number of diseases linked with animal farming might be countless, and we explored infections, influenzas, coronaviruses, BLV, cancers , thyroid and respiratory diseases, coronary ailments, arthiritis in the previous article, here are a few more worth noting:

  1. Infections from Manure: Not only do meat, egg and dairy expose us to infections of stomach and urinary tract, vegans are also calling or more veganic farming, which eliminates use of animal manure and animal blood or bones in vegetable plantations. As noted in a research report on environmental health, ‘It is quite unrealistic to enumerate all the microbial pathogens present in cattle manure because of the huge numbers of these pathogens that populate the gastrointestinal tract and the other systems in the animal. Agricultural animals, including cattle produce copious quantities of animal manure consisting of animal excreta (feces and urine) along with bedding, microorganisms, process-generated wastewater, secretions (nose, throat, blood, vagina, mammary glands, skin and placenta), undigested and spilled feed, antibiotics, nutrients and fur.’ (An Overview of the Control of Bacterial Pathogens in Cattle Manure, Christy E. Manyi-Loh, Sampson N. Mamphweli, Edson L. Meyer, Golden Makaka, Michael Simon, Anthony I. Okoh, Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2016 Sep; 13). In short along with the Vitamin B12 and other nutrients from animal products such as dairy, eggs, meat and manure, we also risk ingesting other secretions and fecus which are highly pathogenic.
  2. Bovine Songiform Encephalopathy (Mad Cow Disease): BSE also called mad-cow disease, is a dealy prionic infection acquired by cows by way of feeding them slaughtered remains of other killed cattle. BSE was subsequently transmitted to humans, causing new variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (nvCJD). A task force here has been studying cases of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD), an incurable malady of the brain and nervous system that has been linked to eating beef or other products from cattle infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy or “mad cow disease. (Balter M. Epidemiology. Tracking the human fallout from ‘mad cow disease’. Science. 2000 Sep 1)
  3. Brucellosis (Malta/ Mediterranean fever): A detailed report states that, ‘Brucellosis is one of the most common contagious and communicable zoonotic diseases with high rates of morbidity and lifetime sterility as well as abortions., arthiritis, coughs, fever and neural problems. The infection of Brucella species is commonly mediated by direct contact with the placenta, fetus, fetal fluids, and vaginal discharges or byproducts (e.g., milk, meat, and cheese) from infected animals. The enlarged udder size (appearance of the 9th month of a pregnant cow) could be used as an indication for the high stage of the disease, where animals shed bacteria in urine, milk, and vaginal discharges. Brucellosis has been reported in 86 different countries worldwide and is a serious threat not only to livestock but also to human health globally. (Muhammad Zahoor Khan, Muhammad Zahoor Trop Med Infect Dis. 2018 Jun)
  4. Toxoplasmosis: Two forms of T. gondii are infectious, the tissue cyst which is found in raw or undercooked meat and the oocyst which is present in the feces of the domestic cat. According to research infection by Toxoplasma gondii is thought to affect approximately one-third of the adult human population.’ (Halonen SK, Weiss LM. Toxoplasmosis. Handb Clin Neurol. 2013)
  5. Eye/ Ocular disease: Studies in South-east Asia found that certain eye infections, Gnathostoma spinigerum are common in humans and due to ingestion of contaminated fish, pork, chicken, frog, or snake. Contaminated meat contains third-stage larvae, and upon ingestion, the larvae penetrate the viscera and travel to internal organs and subcutaneous tissue. (Daengsvang S. Gnathostomiasis in Southeast Asia. Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 1981 Sep)
  6. Parasitic Worms: Helminth is a general term for a parasitic worm. The helminths include the Platyhelminthes or flatworms (flukes and tapeworms) and the Nematoda or roundworms.  Larvae are contained in the tissues of the intermediate host and are taken in when a human eats that host, Clonorchis in fish, tapeworms in meat and fish, Trichinella in meat. (Wakelin D. Helminths: Pathogenesis and Defenses. In: Baron S, editor. Medical Microbiology. 4th edition. Galveston (TX): University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston; 1996. Chapter 87)
  7. Type 1 Diabetes: In a study on Casein milk protein and Type 1 diabetes among children, researchers presented evidence that A1 β-casein cows’ milk protein is a primary causal trigger of type 1 diabetes in individuals with genetic risk factors. (J S J Chia, J L McRae, S Kukuljan, K Woodford, R B Elliott, B Swinburn, K M Dwyer Nutr Diabetes. 2017 May). Another research on Type 1 diabetes in high risk children, doscovered that at three months of age, infants who had been fed cows’ milk had a significantly higher immune response to bovine insulin than did infants who received an alternative formula or were breast fed. (Gottlieb S. Early exposure to cows’ milk raises risk of diabetes in high risk children. BMJ. 2000)
  8. AIDS: In a report on diseases of wildlife and threats to human health, it is stated that. ‘the emergence of HIV is believed to have arisen from hunting of nonhuman primates for food in central African forests.’ (Daszak P, Cunningham AA, Hyatt AD. Clearly exploitation and killing of animals for food is a primary cause of some of the most deadly diseases in the world.

    Science. 2000 Jan 21)

  9. Rabies: While a risk of rabies transmitted to humans by dogs might have reduced, new research explains that, ‘human rabies transmitted by wildlife, mostly by bats is a risk to inhabitants in many countries. Transmission of rabies by vampire bats to cattle and humans was associated with forest activities in South America.’ (Belotto A, Leanes LF, Schneider MC, Tamayo H, Correa E. Overview of rabies in the Americas. Virus Res. 2005 Jul)
  10. Acne: Milk is meant to increase the growth of calves, it naturally contains growth hormones and anabolic steroids, detrimental to human health. Scientific research on Acne has found that a western diet being dairy rich contributes to acne. (Danby FW. Clin Dermatol. 2010 Nov-Dec;28). This may also explain the onset of acne in adolesence for most people and hence dairy as a causative factor.
  11. Eczema: In a study on egg and cows’ milk exclusion diet linked with antigen-avoidance, majority of children who avoided eggs and dairy and received soya substitutes instead of dairy benefited positively. (Atherton DJ, Sewell M, Soothill JF, Wells RS, Chilvers CE. A double-blind controlled crossover trial of an antigen-avoidance diet in atopic eczema. Lancet. 1978 Feb 25)
  12. Dermatitis:  In a study exploring diet and dermatological conditions of Seborrheic dermatitis (distinguished by dandruff, cradle cap, seborrheaseborrheic eczema, and seborrheic psoriasis) on 4,379 participants comparing vegetable, Western, fat-rich and frut dietary patterns,  the fruit pattern was associated with a 25% lower risk and the Western pattern with a 47% increased risk. (Sanders MGH, Pardo LM, Ginger RS, Kiefte-de Jong JC, Nijsten T. J Invest Dermatol. 2019 Jan)
  13. Skin Cancers: In a comparitive study between meat and dairy/ fat rich diet and a diet of fruits and vegetables including green leaves, the meat and fat pattern was positively associated with development of SCC tumors. A higher consumption of the vegetable and fruit dietary pattern appeared to decrease SCC tumor risk by 54%. (Ibiebele TI, van der Pols JC, Hughes MC, Marks GC, Williams GM, Green AC.

    Am J Clin Nutr. 2007 May)

  14. Stress, Anxiety and Mood Disorders: A study comparing vegan, vegeraian and omnivore diets found reduction of animal food intake may have mood benefits. (Vegans report less stress and anxiety than omnivores. Beezhold B, Radnitz C, Rinne A, DiMatteo J. Nutr Neurosci. 2015 Oct)
  15. Schizophrenia: An international analysis found that a higher national dietary intake of refined sugar and dairy products predicted a worse 2-year outcome of schizophrenia (Peet M. Br J Psychiatry. 2004 May). Another analysis of twenty-two cross-sectional studies reported on the relationship between dietary intake of fruits and vegetables and psychosis. Of these 20 studies found lower vegetable and fruit intake is linked with psychosis and one determined that increase in this intake can reverse psychosis. (Aucoin M, LaChance L, Cooley K, Kidd S: Diet and Psychosis: A Scoping Review. Neuropsychobiology 2020;79:20-42. doi: 10.1159/000493399)

In short whether, physical health, infections or mental health, veganism and an elimination of all animal exploitation is not only tremendously beneficial from an ethical perspective, it is also as beneficial to human health and for the wellbeing of the planet as a whole. 

The need to rapidly eliminate animal farming and expolitation of farm animals on an emergency basis cannot be overstated. Not only that we need also to stop needless domestication of animals or their use in farms, for entertainment, in zoos, as pets, as research subject, for animal testing, their use as slaves, or in any way that is unnecessary to leave them in their natural habitats, and to return earth to its natural state. Thirdly we need to switch to veganic farming methods and replace the use of animal products and manure entirely as soon as we can to heal our planet and eliminate suffering of both humans and animals.

Seven Human Lies Regarding Plants vs Animals

For very strange reasons we have been taught massive lies since our childhood and all the way even as we grow up, we defend such lies by arguing against any new information and against our inherent common sense. This is especially true of arguments around our eating habits and sentience of plants versus animals. Should we continue to justify the mistakes of our ancestors and the system that insists we comply with what we are taught in schools or by parents? Or should we start thinking for ourselves and questioning those beliefs in a sincere way?

1. Humans are Omnivores: Teachers receive training to advocate misinformation in schools, misinformaton that has been passed down for several centuries even though contrary to Darwin’s model of evolution. If we look at scientific evidence, it becomes clear that we resemble frugivores and apes in our appearance and genetic structure, e.g. teeth, digestive tract, body shape (refer to chart below). Is it really so hard to believe that we are designed to be frugivore more than anything else? Then how did the concept of Omnivorism get into our system? Omnivores in their wild state, such as badgers, opossums, skunks, bears and foxes hunt and eat the flesh of their prey without cooking, just as carnivores do. Humans on the other hand, conveniently commodify and factory farm animals and the ‘kill’ process is largely conducted privately without the consumer’s  intention or involvement, making them unaware of the emotions associated with the grotesque ‘process’. Humans also need to clean and cook the animal body parts before consuming them. Clearly this diet or lifestyle is not part of the ‘cycle of life’ and not what nature intended originally, but something Humans ‘chose’ or were fooled into following, against nature and against their own good judgement, thereby inviting deadly diseases and social disorders of violence that have curiously become acceptable in the matrix of society.

2. Plants are living too so eating plants is as bad as killing or exploiting animals: In truth plants do not ‘die’ for us to harvest their fruits and leaves…they are resilient and grow more if trimmed or harvested just like our hair. Secondly they don’t have nervous systems or pain receptors although they respond to physical input in an automatic way, thanks to the chemical process that help them sense stimuli. If you believe that harvesting carrots is painful to them, because plants sensing movement or responding to light and water is an evidence of sentience, then perhaps our motion detector gadgets,  thermometers, biosensers and fire alarms are sentient beings that feel pain too! Can you imagine how ridiculous our conditioning is? Animals however clearly exhibit pain due to nerve endings and respond by running away from danger. They also feel fear, pain, joy and sorrow, as they display emotions. Farm animals suffer from a reduced life span as well as lose their life if turned to food, quite unlike plants or fruits who simply grow back onto the plant. We certainly do not uproot and kill trees when we take an apple from it, however we need to kill the animal entirely to consume their meat. If vegetarian, we cause massive harm by breeding and exploiting birds and mammals, abusing the females sexually and consuming off their abused bodies which ultimately are slaughtered for meat after all that violent abuse, even as their males counterparts are incarcerated shortly after birth as they are useless to the industries. And lastly even if we believe that plants might feel pain, animals bred or slaughtered or exploited for food would intake a lot more plants to feed humans and wo.uld also consume significantly more resources such as land and water, and therefore we cause a lot more plant ‘mutilation’ or ‘death’ when we consume animal products than if we directly consumed plant produce. But arguments aside, even a child can tell us that chopping cucumber and chopping heads off animals feels very different. Infact if sensible parents do not wish to show graphic bloodshed and exploitation of animal agriculture to their sensitive children, it is even more important that they should not deceptively feed them animal products which are always the result of graphic exploitation, thereby ruining the moral, mental and physical health of children.

3. Animals are meant to be eaten as our ancestors were hunters (pagans) and/ OR God put us here to rule the planet (book religion): Truth is our ancestors did a lot of wrong things, killing was one of them..hence we evolve not regress. Even hunter-gatherers are mistakenly believed to be primarily animal killers, when truth is hunting can mean ‘searching’ for something you need and does not necessarily reflect a desire to kill. Our ancestors as hunter gatherers often foraged for plant foods and other items they needed and might have built thier instruments for carving, art and craft, instead of merely for taking a life, except in self-defense in the wild ancient world. In any case we have now evolved to a massive extent and need no longer depend on rudimentary and brazen violence, regardless of ancient or spiritual traditions of nomadic, native or pagan tribes. If you don’t believe in evolution and think some God put us in ‘hell’ to help us rule over it..that sounds more like a devilish character turning us to demons by bringing us down from the plant-food world designed initially in the sixth day of creation as per book-based religious theorms. These Biblical texts clarify that the first ‘matrix’ was designed as a frugivore paradise or Eden and only after humanity’s deception, were we placed in a new matrix where suddenly the evil of slaughter was allowed after the creator destroyed earth on account of man’s evil nature. We have imposed our will upon the planet for a long time based on our belief that our ancestors and religious books teach us the right things about human superiority and it is time to step down from our ‘high chair’ of human ego that assumes we were created to rule the world and do as we will to other creature we consider ‘lowly’ or less ‘intelligent’. Even children may not be as intelligent as adults, therefore the ‘intelligent species’ argument does not justify our mistreatment or commodification of other animals, leave alone sexual abuse or killing which is what we are doing to innocent children of earth.

Ego-logical_VS_Eco-logical

4. We are supposed to be kind and compassionate to our own kind: Talking of human to human kindness, and human suffering in response to information about animal sentience and suffering is ignoble. Would you start arguing why activists who campaign for women’s rights or children’s rights do so when there are so many other issues to promote, and would you accuse them of not focusing solely on environment or economy instead of their chosen cause? So why do we get angry with animal right activists for campaigning for animal rights and liberty, unless it is strictly about pet dogs or cats and not farm animals whom we believe were ‘made for us’? Is fighting against animal rights advocacy, a sign of true compassion or merely a sign of hate and ego?  And why do we ask campaigners of animal liberation to ‘tone their campaigns down’, ‘suppress the evidence of graphic violence by not showing it’, ‘fitting into society’, ‘refraining from questioning beliefs or traditions’ and allow people to carry on participating in violence even as trillions of animals suffer and die constantly? Our belief that we should be nice to all people around us and be agreeable to all is a misplaced notion that agreements are a sign of love. Infact helping someone realize the truth and adopt a healthier, more affordable, more sustainable and less gross lifestyle is a sign of kindness and compassion to the human we are dealing with. At the same time we end up ensuring that we are not being biased towards our own species in vain disregard to the other millions we share this planet with.

bekind

5. We can kill humanely: Is it possible to kill someone kindly? In case killing is humane would you like yourself to experience the humaneness of ‘domestic abuse’ and meaningless slaughter that farm animals are routinely and forceably subject to? If you think free-range is better, would you feel happy being shot into your head (baby calves), being bludgeoned to death on your head as an infant (piglets), or about being gassed alived in a packed gas chamber with other inmates (pigs and chicken), macerated alive soon after birth (egg industry hatchlings) or being killed with a massive slit to your throat (cows including pregnant cows with their unborn babies), because these are approved practices as per legal standards? Slaughterhouses claiming to be humane have been filmed and it is clear that animals are slithering and shaking in pain – moving their legs desperately till their last breath. Even if this was not the case and somehow the animal died totally painlessly, does it mean it is not violence or that a life was not taken unnecessarily against will from the victim? Would we humanely kill humans too as you say humane killing is good, if we can ensure they had a good life in free range organic farms. Even Jeffrey Dahmer the notorius serial killer treated his victims well before rape and slaughter and consumed their flesh. If this is wrong, why do we have double standards in our treatment of humans versus animals? If you would not want it done to yourself why support this crime against others just because they are do not share overt semblence to humans? The only reason is specieism which is an extension of racism and therefore a digression from spirituality.

6. We need to kill to survive: The theorem behind ‘survival of the fittest’ has led us to believe that the more dominant we are on earth, the more likely we are survive, especially in adverse situations owing to lack of food. Truth is we are not on a desert island dying of shortage of plant food or defending ourselves from danger in the wild. Even if we were in those hypothetical situations, our instincts are not to kill but to escape. No-one sees an innocent animal and actually wants to kill . We do not have the urge to pounce on every moving being and crush them with out teeth and hands the way carnivorous creatures are programmed to. Our first reaction when we see a beautiful rabbit or bird is to admire their beauty and feel a connection. If there are some people going around on a hunting or killing spree by thinking that posing with the dead bodies of our victims make us look cool, it is all because of our mental training by the matrix that promotes sex, consumerism, fashion, power, money and humanism as values over universal kindness to all beings, and at the cost of our physical, emotional and spiritual health. Not only that, if the world went vegan, we would save humanity from extinction, counteract climate change, solve the problem of world hunger and food shortage, free up massive amounts of land and consume much less water, while improving the overall consciousness and sense of ethics in the world. Instead of killing we would grow food. Thus not only would we survive, but thrive, and so would the planet.

7. Vegan and Plant Based Lifestyle is challenging or lacks nutrition: Whether for commercial, nutritional or convenience based presuppositions, we have seen resistances still being imposed on the average mind of humankind. We may fear that there will be commercial loss to existing businesses that depend on animal agriculture and feel bad for the exploiters and murderers who abuse animals. In truth these professionals can simply change what they are doing and be even more profitable if they have the will to do it and are guided clearly on how to. Most people buy into the myth that vegans lack in dietary nutritients which is due to a failure of our education system because we can clearly see that the strongest and healthiest animals are complete herbivores and frugivores, such as rhinos, elephants, whales, bulls and chimpanzees. The only argument people restate is that of Vitamin B12 which is derived from soil and the only reason both vegans and non vegans can be deficient in the same, is that we do not these days routinely consume organic vegetables straight from soil. Therefore farm animals are injected with or fed supplements of B12 just as plant foods are supplemented or fortified for us. Consuming rice, lentils, flour, vegetables and fruits is not only nutritiously rich, but also also cheaper and super convenient for every one of us, with the added health benefit of whole foods as compared to processed foods.

The Path of Light-working and Ascension

Light = Awareness.
We cannot heal our reality and our planet for Ascension if we are blind to our own faults and continue on a destructive path of negative karma that leads to our downfall. We can be an angelic being of light not only through mental visualization but through an Actual Practice of Ascension which may include some essential life changes.

(1) Veganism and Spiritual Ethics: In the past spirituality and compassion has been more or less ‘human-focused’ with other sentient beings routinely being used in farming and as products or commodities. We have seen animals being hunted, killed for sport, their skins being used in drums and ritual gear, dairy products and honey used in spiritual rituals in India as well as non-vegetarian food being popular at spiritual celebrations in the west. Cruelty based products are not only dairy, eggs, meat, wool, honey, leather and fur but also many of our everyday consumer items and pharmaceuticals. Ascension is a path out of this matrix when we discover that all beings and not only human beings are part of the One Higher Self, Source, creator or True Self to whom we return through not just intellectual realization but actual practice of ethical living.

(2) Eco-friendly and Zero Plastic Lifestyle: While animal farming remains the number one destroyer of the planet, we also need to abandon the use of plastics which are non-biodegradable and adopt more eco-friendly and plant based options that can bring ourselves back in harmony with nature. We need to look around us and discover how we can replace plastic and junk with earth-friendly materials and adopt a lifestyle of minimalism instead of consumerism so that we can drastically reduce the trash we create everyday. In Ascension not everybody around us might seem to agree and we might find plastic constantly on the shelves whenever we go shopping, however minimizing it is possible if we keep trying our best until plastic is outlawed.

(3) Healthy Choices in Everyday Life: Ascension and spiritual healing do not happen in isolation within our mind, but are a synthesis of our mind, body and spirit into the light of oneness. No matter how many hours of meditation, yoga and healing, if we are still reaching out for cigarettes, narcotics, alcohol, meat, dairy or any other addiction out of compulsion, we are not able to experience true inner healing. Meditation, mindfulness, positive visualization and affirmations can only be a starting point of our practice of higher consciousness, which crystallizes in our actual everyday practice of mindful and conscious living. When we read our product labels carefully, choose organic and live foods, read the right literature, educate ourselves on how to make healthier and more positive choices, and detaching from toxic or unhealthy relationships, we are practicing Ascension.

(4) Kindness to All Beings and Self: Some people practice kindness and compassion only in outward human society and as polite gestures of social respect or conformity. Ascension is a path of authentic living and not merely about outward smiles and greetings of light. When we spend time in nature and meditate with our inner self, we discover the true meaning of kindness. Being abused or hurt in the process of being spiritual is unnecessary, as is ‘showing the other cheek’ if someone slaps us. We need to stand in our own authentic truth and refuse to be either victims or perpetrators of violence. We also need to refuse being mute-witnesses to violence against any other being so that we can openly help other people and creatures who require our support to be a true earth angel.

(5) Inner Peace that Radiates Outwards: We cannot create or manifest world peace by simply talking about it. We also need to bring ourselves into alignment with our higher nature in our actions. Inner does not only refer to our mind but also our heart and soul. Visualizing light and being in silence through meditation is one way of feeling peaceful in the moment, so is sending this peace and healing to our planet, because all of us are one being in the higher dimension of truth. Peace does not mean that only those who are meditative are required to be silent and calm, but also that others need to learn and practice holding the silent space of peace and tranquility so that we can stop wars, terror, abuse and crime in our world.

(6) Real Love not confused with Sexual Lust: In the matrix we have received the wrong programming that equated the word love with lust. We have been deceived into believing that romance is equivalent to true love and that we need to unite with a soulmate or twin-flame soul who is outside of us for Ascension. One of the truths we discover in spirituality is that everything and everyone outside is a part of the grand illusion that we are projecting into reality. For ascension we need to connect with our inner twin-flame which is our own authentic self instead of seeking anyone else to complete us. Spiritual masters and meditation gurus in the past have discovered the joys of asceticism and celibacy which can help us detach from sensual lust and unplugs us from the matrix of sensory illusions.

(7) Inner Consciousness of Sattvic or Truthful life: Falseness or artificiality has become the hallmark of human life over the last few millenniums. We seek more material comfort instead of inner peace and convenience over spiritual effort which prevents us from gaining consciousness. Truthful or Sattvic life is not based on pleasing others or giving more pleasure to ourselves, but one of detachment and self-realization. A Sattvic practice is not about seeking truth but about rejecting that which is false or illusion so that our inner truth shines through in the end. Letting go of all that feels Tamasic or dark, and also of the Rajasic or restless, whether in food, consumerism or any aspect of our culture is part of regaining consciousness.

(8) Inner Joy and Happiness: The path of Ascension and healing is an inner path. By demanding love, affection, kindness, sympathy and compassion from other people, we are unable to focus on our inner treasures of peace and happiness that are constantly present within. Whenever we feel desperate or needy for anything or any person on the outside, we need to first meditate and find our wholesomeness so that we can give more instead of taking more from others around us.

16 Harmless Ways to Keep Pests at Bay

We can be conscious and avoid the intentional harm of any species, by choosing vegan, cruelty free products, plant based diet and organic vegetables. But what about insects and pests?

While it is true that accidental deaths and injury of other tiny life-forms may not always be avoidable, here are a few simple and non-toxic ways to repel bugs and pests without harming them, your health or the planet.

  1. Garlic: One of the best and easiest ways of repelling insects is garlic. A few peeled cloves of garlic left scattered around the house can keep roaches away. Not only that, garlic water sprayed around the house and garden can keep many pests away. Not just cholesterol and heart disease, in some cultures consuming raw garlic has also been believed to ward off mosquito bites too.garlic-1549453_960_720
  2. Cloves: To repel flies and mosquitoes slice a lemon or orange and insert a few cloves into each half and place wherever needed. Cloves and cinnamon contain ‘eugenol’, a substance that repels insects. lemons-1330740_960_720
  3. Oils: A very popular cure for repelling insects is citronella oil. Tea-tree oil also works to repel bedbugs, ticks and fleas. Oils can be used in aromatherapy diffusion or within a spray.essential-768949_960_720
  4. Citrus Peels: The peels of oranges and lemon rind can be effective at repelling ants, cats and insects, so do not simply throw them away immediately. Scatter or leave some around in your windowsill or cupboards for some time.orange-1403256_960_720
  5. Mint: Planting plenty of mint in the garden is great for warding off spiders, mice and a variety of bugs naturally. You could also spray peppermint essential oil for similar effect at home.mint-1549247_960_720-1
  6. Bay Leaves: Whole laurel bay leaves in your kitchen shelves, cabinets and wardrobes can keep infestations of ants and bugs at bay.laurel-272961_960_720

  7. Neem: Not only does neem prevent germs, cavities and skin infections, it is also fantastic as an insect repellent, both as loose leaves or powder and as essential oil.neem-leaves-651913_960_720
  8. Conkers: Spiders are mysteriously repelled by a few loose conker shells placed along the boundary of your property.conkers-15186_960_720
  9. Visual Deterrents: If pigeons are getting stuck in your solar panels, try scaring them off with shiny rods, chimes, foil or tape that move in the wind. Scarecrows, owl and cat figurines in the garden also keep pests away.scarecrow-670720_960_720
  10. Copper Tape: Copper makes an excellent barrier against slugs and snails in the garden to protect your plants without using pesticides.tape
  11. Flower Power: Lavender, marigold, geranium, petunias and chrysanthemums are not only beautiful flowers but also work as natural pest repellents.lavender-3479492_960_720
  12. Cooking Herbs: Oregano, basil, eucalyptus, lemongrass, rosemary, thyme, fennel, chives, dill, parsley, mint, catnip and lemon balm are but a few herbs reputed to keep infestations out. Their essential oils are great too.basil-932079_960_720
  13. Sunshine: A lot of natural light and strong sun is great for warding off unwanted pests and diseases, so let there be light!house-2609484_960_720
  14. Aeration: Clean and fresh air, especially cross-ventilation with plenty of windows is not only great for health but also keeps germs and bugs away. Stale environments, stagnant energy and closed rooms however would attract infestations.dining-2112653_960_720
  15. Minimalize: Not only is keeping your house clean and clutter free with minimal objects stacked around good for reducing negative energy but also works to ensure fewer infestations. Keep your home especially free of newspapers, bulky furniture, heavy curtains, carpets, plastic bags, junk and old bedding where insects could hide.minimal
  16. Things to avoid: Salty foods, artificial perfumes, alcoholic drinks, sugary treats, chocolate, dairy products, cans, stale food, leftovers, food particles, junk food, overflowing bins, dead animals or meat would attract pests and hence not recommended.garbage-1260833_960_720

 

 

15 Tips for An Amazing Eco-Friendly Life

We all know about the impact humans have had on the environment, whether by cutting down trees, filling our oceans with plastic or polluting our air with greenhouse gases leading to an human-made climate change. Fortunately there are somethings that we can all do right from the comfort of our homes.

  1. Food: A planet friendly diet of fruits and vegetables, especially organically farmed is sustainable and cruelty-free. Animal farming has been contributing more greenhouse gases than all our vehicles put together and has also added to severe shortage of land,  grains and water. Sourcing our food from organic farmers who do not use plastic packaging or growing your own food in your allotment or backyard, and cooking or raw-eating at home can dramatically reduce garbage created by food processing industry and supermarket shopping. fruit-932745_960_720.jpg
  2. Personal Care: Much of our garbage consists of toiletries, makeup and personal care items encased in plastic and filled with harmful chemicals as well as extracts from killed animals. You would be surprised that fruits called soapnuts or soapberries such as shikakai and reetha, tied in muslin and soaked in a cup of warm water can totally replace all of our shampoos, detergents, dish-washing or cleaning liquids. Similarly neem, licorice,  babool or meswak sticks that can be chewed and rubbed on teeth after each meal can completely replace all tooth-cleaning products to leave us with healthier and squeaky clean teeth,while reducing cold and flu at the same time by their natural medicinal juices.neemsoapnuts
  3. Cleaning Aids: Plastic brooms, brushes and scouring pads can  all add to  non-biodegradable waste. These can be easily replaced with pure cotton or coconut scrubbers, traditional plant based broomsticks (traditional besoms of the west and jhadus of India) and cloth wipes (pochas used in India) with metal buckets for cleaning floor and surfaces. Loofahs made of dried up fruit called gourd are a fantastic biodegradable replacement for kitchen sponges too. Biodegradable bin liners are already replacing plastic bin liners all over the world and we can use metal or bamboo bins for containing our waste instead of plastic. broom
  4. Menstrual Hygiene: Napkins, pads and  tampons are not only expensive and single-use, they also can add to plastic and non-recyclable waste. Menstrual cups are an inexpensive option that can last a lifetime as you simply empty, wash, fold and reinsert it and vegan cups that do not have animal testing are in vogue.mooncup2
  5. Toilet Hygiene: Wipes and rolls of paper take a toll on our environment too by using trees. Bamboo paper is being used by some manufacturers to save trees as it is more sustainable than virgin or recycled paper rolls. However the traditional Indian system of washing with water and soapy solution and wiping with a personal towel could save a lot more trees. While ‘jet-spray gun’ attachments are normally fixed in Indian toilets adjacent to the toilet bowl, they are new to western loos where bidet attachments are being introduced within the toilet seat itself.bidet
  6. Medicine: Most of our healthcare needs can be handled at home with a few kitchen herbs, clean environment, rest, yoga, meditation, energy healing and a healthy plant based diet. Simple home remedies such as cloves for pain relief, cinnamon and turmeric for antiseptic, licorice for cough, cumin, carom and fennel seeds for digestion, holy basil for fever, eucalyptus oil and mint for cold and aches can greatly reduce clinic visits and make us less dependent on synthetic, animal tested drugs and environmentally toxic pharma products. Make your own medicine by grinding a few kitchen herbs such as cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, black pepper, licorice, fennel, cardamom seeds, cloves and dates to make ‘churan’ rolls for digestive health and to ward off common ailments.churan golis
  7. Accessories: Carry bags, shoes, table-mats, home-decor, laundry and waste bins, and curtains can all be easily made with jute, bamboo,hemp and other sustainable plant based fibers that are completely eco-friendly and cruelty-free while looking beautiful at the same time.bags-2379225_960_720.jpg
  8. Clothes: Synthetic clothes have filled the marketplace in the last few decades and not many people realize that they are not planet friendly or skin friendly as compared to plant based and less industry intensive options such as ‘khadi’ cotton or hand-loom and hemp fabric.material-1397958_960_720.jpg
  9. Kitchen and Tableware: In addition to eliminating single use plastic straws, disposable cutlery and bone china or ceramic that contain animal parts and hence not cruelty-free, we can also use eco-friendly storage containers, serving dishes, spice jars and bottles of water made of glass, bamboo,terracotta or earthenware.baskets-1001439_960_720
  10. Furniture: Instead of wood, plastic and synthetics that are harmful for environment or leather upholstery and feathered cushions which are animal intensive and cruelty based, we can opt for environment friendly cane and bamboo furniture with natural plant based fabric for cushions and seats.floating-flower-1782388_960_720.jpg
  11. Stationery: Environment friendly and sustainable paper such as bamboo paper and bamboo stationery that saves trees, plant based plastics for scissors, paper instead of cello-tapes, vegan glues, plant based brushes and canvas, non-toxic crayons, eco-friendly pens instead of plastic are some of the everyday items that we can be more mindful of while shopping. eco-friendly-stationery-kit-7.jpg
  12. Electronics: Instead of plastic intensive laptops, tablets and phones, some manufacturers are introducing environment friendly electronic gadgets including recyclable laptops to eliminate the sizable e-waste that is threatening our planet.paperlaptop.jpg
  13. Toys: Plastic toys have been far too prevalent in the market, but we can now choose wooden and environment friendly toys even as toy manufacturers have started to think about plant based plastics to replace conventional ones. Eco-friendly handicraft toys are beautiful and give children a chance to appreciate creative crafts too.bicycles-17511_960_720.jpg
  14. Travel: From simply walking, cycling or jogging down to work, school or shopping whenever distance permits, to using public transport instead of private cars we can drastically reduce fuel consumption and our carbon footprint. Shopping locally and using homemade products can also help us be carbon neutral by avoiding unnecessary transportation or import of goods. Electric and solar powered vehicles  including solar air-crafts have already been introduced.solar.png
  15. Housing: Sustainable and environment friendly homes include those built with recycled material, terracotta tiles and roofs, home on wheels or boats as well as quirky tree-houses incorporating rainwater harvesting, recycling water and sewage for growing trees, growing your own food, natural ventilation and solar paneling. Earthship Global for example specializes in sustainable housing.SAMSUNG

 

Positive Film Review: Dominion

If we are pained by descriptions of how humans were treated in Nazi gas chambers and concentration camps then there is no reason why we should not be pained by this which is far more inhuman. For the World Vegan Month, in this free documentary filmed in Australia as well as UK, US, China, India, Canada and many parts of the world, we see the shocking truth about how animals have been treated every single day, even till now in the highly profitable meat, poultry and dairy industry.

The filth, infections, poisons and diseases in sheds and the blood baths in slaughter houses will make you think twice before consuming meat, if not for the sake of animals then at least for the mental and physical health of your own family. Learn how many of the practices that are labelled ‘humane’ and declared ‘legal’ by authorities and animal welfare organisations are actually so cruel that most of us are not even able to see the videos without being brave. For those unable to watch the transcript is educative https://www.dominionmovement.com/transcript, however watching this film helps us understand what suffering is beyond our own so that we can awaken our heart and take action by educating the masses and campaigning to protect the innocent.

As we focus on world peace, spiritual ascension and earth healing, we know that this is impossible without improving how we are treating other creatures on our planet. This is why this documentary is a must watch for all humans on earth so that we can stop supporting industries that abuse and kill animals and call for a global ban on slaughter and meat which is long overdue. After-all, we have known for a while how all of our nutritional needs can be fully met without harming any creature and with cleaner and greener ways of living.

Positive Review: What The Health Documentary

We all know that smoking, alcohol and processed meat all are listed as top contributors to diseases such as Cancer, Heart Ailments, Diabetes, Asthma and many more. Yet we find there are absolutely NO laws whatsoever against any of these. Most ignored of these health risks is that of the animal meat industry. Although we still have awareness campaigns to help people quit smoking and alcohol, speaking against meat and animal products is considered taboo even within families and invites criticism not only from healthcare experts but also your own friends and colleagues.

We are constantly sold more meat, poultry and dairy by packaging and marketing them as ‘good for health’ while we are told that vegans and vegetarians could be deficient in nutrients and therefore more likely to die early, even though in countries such as India it is common to see people who are totally vegetarian since birth with absolutely fantastic health. Those of us in the healing and well-being service have heard from people who halted or even reversed cancer by simply eliminating meat from their diet, and I have such received testimonials personally some of from my clients. It is easy to understand that killing and abuse of animals in industries can ensure that we get all kinds of animal feces, pus, diseases and germs in our diet which has excessive vitamin B12 just like feces has. In contrast plant diets can provide all of our nutrients in much healthier and cleaner ways. Most of the strongest animals on our planet such as elephants, rhinoceros, chimpanzees, gorillas, bulls, horses are primarily herbivores or plant eaters which should be a clear indication that our researches that tell us we need animal proteins and dairy calcium for strength or health are not entirely true.

This well made free documentary can help us understand how many of the researches we read about in media and online that claim that non-vegetarian diet is essential for health and longevity have been actually sponsored by meat, dairy and poultry producers which is why laws against them are never passed, or any health warnings ever provided on meat and animal products. Reading such research on benefits of milk, eggs or meat is more like reading on the health benefits of cigarettes in research sponsored by the tobacco industry. What is even more lucrative for governments and corporate profiteers is the money to be made through the pharmaceutical industry in keeping us ill instead of healthy simply to sell more drugs which is why doctors and medical professionals are brainwashed in their education to prescribe drugs and to not promote a vegan diet.

As expected many criticisms ‘debunking’ this documentary have been released in popular media and by health or nutritional professionals in a clear demonstration of how truth is covered up out of fear by the organized industry cartels and sponsored research. You could view this documentary yourself and take your own stand.
