My Spiritual Journey!

Something has changed in me the past two years, I am a very different person, I am extremely sad, yet extremely happy.  I see the world in a completely different light and it is beautiful.  I love to  watch the sky because it is amazing, I love to watch birds going about there business because they are amazing too, I love to smile at strangers when I recognise goodness in them and sometimes even when I don’t.  Most of all I am learning to love myself, I don’t care what anyone says or thinks I know I am a beautiful soul, because I feel beautiful.

The past two years has seen many changes in me, the way I think, the way I eat, the way I exercise, the way I interact and appreciate people, and especially the way I view the world.  I no longer overthink, I no longer think I am not good enough, I no longer rely on other people’s opinions, I form my own and trust in my instincts.

I haven’t yet found my purpose, but I am constantly craving knowledge, insight, appreciation and gratitude.  Somehow, I feel more spiritual, no I haven’t found religion as I don’t believe in religion because it is man-made, my beliefs are spiritual.  I have struggled being an oversensitive person all my life, but now it is no longer a struggle, I feel blessed because of my sensitivity, I see good in people and I like that I have that insight.

Is this an awakening? I feel that it is, it feels strange, yet good, scary yet courageous.  I feel out of place in this world, yet I can  comfort myself.  I have not really discussed with anyone how I feel, but I have told a few close friends of my new found spirituality.  There are two reasons why I have not expressed how I feel because; 1. I can’t find the right words to fully explain what I am going through and 2. the people around me would not understand because they are caught up in this false, fake, materialistic, all consuming world, no judgement at all upon them, I too was caught up in that world for almost 50 years.

I am struggling to do my menial office job, I have lost all interest and motivation for it because I don’t feel like I am bettering the world one tiny iota.  I dream of doing something good, helping animals, changing people’s mindsets, but I don’t know where to start.  There are lots of things in this world I would like to change, I am at the stage where I am running through them in my head, aware I can only do a very small amount of good but it doesn’t matter as long as I am doing good, helping animals, helping people it doesn’t matter.

The world we currently live in creates problems, that don’t have to exist, if only people were more spiritual, believed in themselves and were more compassionate.  Depressives don’t know that you don’t have to be depressed, drug and alcohol abusers don’t know that they can change, people have more power than they think they have, if they learn and grow by doing practices that will give them spiritual growth.  Practices such as gratitude, meditation, exercise, reading, learning, self-compassion, all of these practices will help you grow as a person, reduce or even eliminate addictions, anxiety, depression and anger.   You don’t need any special talents or knowledge to do them as long as you do them you will learn as you go along.

My thirst for spiritual knowledge is unquenchable, I now realise I have always had an interest in spirituality, but have suppressed it most of my life.   I don’t yet know what my life purpose is, but think I may be able to help others awaken, or at least help them realise that a spiritual path is a beautiful one, it can help with difficulties in your life, it can ground you and most of all see the beauty in everything and everyone, it makes life feel magical.  So many people suffer because they struggle with emotions and don’t know how to fully accept that emotions are a normal human trait and essential to personal growth.

I have just ordered some tarot cards and a book to fully explain how to use tarot.   I do have some oracle cards, but never really use them, because I don’t fully understand what I am doing.  It’s funny because I remember about 20-25 years ago I actually had tarot cards and did use them, but I can’t find them, another sign of my suppressed interest for spirituality.  Now I feel I am closer to the real me than ever before, finally I see the matrix for what is is.

My eyes have opened in the past two years, although I have a long way to go, I have come such a long way in a couple of years.  I am so grateful for whatever it was that caused my awakening because I feel so much better than before and I wish everyone could experience it.  There would be less fighting, wars and the potential for a peaceful earth would be high.  I wish I could tell people how to awaken, but it is difficult because mine was my own very personal experience and one that I felt I had no control of (although I am not fully convinced of this).

My advice to anyone that would like to wake up is to gather knowledge, learn as much as you can and see if this triggers an awakening for you.  I truly hope it does, because although strange, scary and lonely at times, it is the most wonderful feeling, I feel full of love, for myself, for the planet and for all life!  I am appreciating my body and how it keeps me healthy and alive, hence my regular gym visits, I want to pay it back and take better care of it, this is another sign that I have changed, as someone who never liked exercising, believing it was too hard, I am actually now enjoying, because I know I am now honouring my body and health.

This awakening has impacted me in a number of ways, the changes in me in the past two years is pretty staggering, these are some of the physical, mental and spiritual changes that have happened to me so far; veganism, health conscious, improved mental health, resilience, healthy eating, meditations, gratitude, thirst for spiritual knowledge, love of animals (again suppressed in the past), love of life and appreciation of the different journeys people are on.

Reflecting back, I thing the first sign of change in me was the strong feeling of a need to declutter my stuff and my life.  My life at this present time is pretty hectic, I feel like I have no time, I am very busy, I try to volunteer at Shetland Rescue animal sanctuary at least once a month.  My views have changed of people and of animals, I now see how beautiful people are, I am more accepting of a person’s faults because they are human and imperfect, like me.  I do sometimes feel overwhelmed, I have a complete disinterest in superficial things such as celebrity news, reality TV shows, I value my time like never before, and I now read daily.

Other changes in me are getting up earlier, most days I feel an excitement for the day ahead, I am not as self conscious or fashion conscious as I used to be, as some one who used to spend most of my spare income on clothes, I am now spending less, sending back things I don’t love.  I have had strong desires to simplify my life, including my wardrobe, wearing plainer clothes, a ‘less is more’ approach.  I sometimes feel sad for those that are caught up in this consumer world.   I am trusting my intuition more, doing what feels right and not what everyone else is doing.  I am walking a lot more and my fear of this world is diminishing.

I sometimes get frustrated, seeing the toxic situations people are in and getting frustrated they can’t see it and that they are harming themselves, but trying my best to let them be because they are on their own journey and will hopefully wake up, because I went through exactly the same toxic situations in the past.  I feel excited and at times chaotic in the sense I feel like I have little time left to achieve what I want, but at the same time I am learning to trust the universe, knowing I am progressing and have come so far, yet still have so far to go.

When these changes within me started, I initially felt very disconnected from people, but once I accepted they are on their own journey, different from mine, I have started to reconnect with them again, which has improved my relationships.  I have realised the consequences of my actions on people, the planet and animals and am trying to do the right thing not only for me but for everyone and everything.  I have realised my love of animals, I now believe in myself, as a life long non-swimmer I learned to swim a couple of days ago, it was only self-doubt that stopped me from learning in the past.

I no longer waste time on watching superficial You Tubers, I have switched to watching those that genuinely want to help people, mostly awakened You Tubers.  I have acknowledged my own flaws and have a desire to fix these.  I no longer accept people in my life that don’t treat me right or try to manipulate me to fit in with what they want, not what I want, for example going along with a ‘friends with benefits’ relationship when I want a real relationship.  Just because you like a person and hope the situation will change, it usually won’t because you have accepted less than what you want, one lesson is never compromise your self and what you want, don’t do anything that doesn’t intuitively feel right, and definitely don’t waste your time or money doing things other people want but you don’t.

I am currently looking at doing a healing course, probably Reiki just because I am drawn to it.  I know this post is all over the place and a bit chaotic, this is how my mind is at the moment, it’s thinking faster than I can move, I will continue to meditate to slow it down.

If there is one thing I could teach people, it would be how to awaken, unfortunately I don’t have the knowledge or skills to help people, but I do hope that you reading this post may get you thinking enough to explore and be drawn to your own awakening!

Exercise: No More Excuses!

One of my goals in life is to be fit and healthy, this goal has been taking up my headspace increasingly as I age, but ……………… it has just been in my head, I have rarely, except on occasion took any action.  In the past, I have joined the gym, took exercise classes, gone on walks, done exercises at home but never ever stuck with it, why? because I make constant excuses; ‘Oh it’s raining’, ‘I’m so tired’, ‘I haven’t got time’, ‘I am too fat’, ‘I am too unfit’ ‘I haven’t got appropriate clothing / footwear’, ‘I haven’t got a car to get to the gym’ the list goes on and on and on ………..

I use the ‘Law of Attraction’ Planner, to plan my life, day, tasks, ideas and I recently read back through my monthly priorities going back for some time and realised my common priority was to get fit and healthy through exercise and being more active, it was my priority but I never actually prioritised this goal.  I didn’t want to look back in five years or even ten years time and think ‘Oh my God, I knew my goal, I was aware it was a priority and I did absolutely nothing about it’.  So on Thursday 16th May, I decided, this was ridiculous, No More Excuses!  Guess what I woke up on Friday morning and made an excuse, I can’t even remember the excuse, but I guarantee it would have been a pathetic one!

Disappointed with myself that my first day, I did what I always do and made a lame excuse, I woke up Saturday and ignored the excuses I made and went on a 40 minute brisk walk, I was anxious, I was self-conscious but I did it anyway and yes I praised myself afterwards.  Despite, the blisters (new trainers, no socks) I did it, the next day my feet were cut and sore, whereas in the past this would have been a perfect excuse, I put plasters on my heels and headed out again for another 40 minute walk.  There was only 1 day I didn’t do my walk and I didn’t punish myself or tell myself, ‘that’s it, I just don’t stick with things’.  I persevered, after one week of doing this, I took it one step further.  I joined the gym!

I went with a friend, because if I go on my own, I will not push myself, my friend pushed me, in a safe and realistic way.  I have been everyday for the past five days, working different body parts each time.  I know the first few weeks of the gym is the hardest, there is pain involved, as your body parts hurt, but I am making no excuses, in fact the priority I have wrote in my planner each month, is now my actual priority in practice.

I know going daily is not sustainable for me, at some point I will go to the gym four times a week, preferably straight from work, so I still have my weekends.

I have lots of other ongoing goals I want to achieve, but to me being healthy should be your foundational goal, not only is it good for your body, it is good for your mental health, it gives you a sense of achievement, a feel good factor.  My exercise routine is not a short term thing, I do want to make this part of my life, a ‘Priority’.  I plan to give up smoking once the weight starts coming off, I have reduced smoking significantly since starting to exercise, I have also reduced my drinking quite dramatically, because I don’t want to undermine my hard work and would rather drink something healthy like a green smoothie.

Yesterday, I went out and purchased a waterproof jacket with hood, so I have no excuse when it’s raining, I purchased cushioned sports socks, so I have no excuse for blisters.  I also purchased some more leggings and tops, so I no longer have the excuse I don’t have the appropriate clothing.  I didn’t spend a fortune, I went to T.K. Maxx but it is enough to get me by for now.  I have no more excuses, none at all, I am sure there will be times I will come up with some, but I will choose to ignore them, I will get fit, I will be able to wear whatever I want, without trying to hide my lumps and bumps, I will feel good about myself.

Hopefully, the knock on effect of making exercise part of my life style will be to give up smoking, drink in moderation, eat super healthy, I do eat healthy, but want to introduce more vegetables).  I feel very motivated at the moment, something I have always lacked when faced with exercise, I am feeding that motivation because it feels good, I am embracing that feeling, but if one day my motivation is lacking, I am going to do it anyway, because my motto is ‘No More Excuses’!

One of the things I have learned about myself this year, is I spend way too much time planning but little time doing.  As an avid list writer and feeling that I never achieve half of what I want to, I now write extremely short lists, sometimes no list at all, because I already know what needs doing, I just need to get on and do them.  I am taking action and it feels good.

 

The Reasons Behind Fake Vegans!

 

There are two type of vegans; true vegans and fake vegans.  The true vegan is vegan for ethical reasons, to save the animals, they don’t need motivation because saving lives is all the drive they need and they DO save lives.   The fake vegans, or the ‘Fakan’ has other motives, they may talk about the animals, but they are just trying to behave like a true vegan so people ‘buy’ in to their facade.  Their motives are varied and differ, some will have multiple motivations; however,  fame, vanity, money, and the trend follower!

They miss the whole point of veganism and the reason they chose to be vegan was not for ethical reasons, which I believe should be the primary reason, the outstanding health benefits are a bonus.   Once you awaken to the truth of animal abuse, slavery and slaughter, you don’t want to be a part of it, and so strong is the repulsion you feel towards the appalling treatment of animals, you know you can never ever be a part of it again, because when you go to the shop to buy milk or pick up a piece of steak at the supermarket or have a cheeseburger at McDonalds, you are part of the abuse.

My interest in veganism did start for health reasons, as I learned about a whole food plant based diet, but the day I chose veganism was the day I woke up to the reality of animal abuse, torture and murder within the food / drink, beauty, medical and fashion industries.

I call it an awakening because once you are exposed to the truth something clicks in your mind, like a blind person with restored sight you will view everything and I mean everything differently including animals and people.  You will then realise many of the horrors in this world are man-made.  Conflicts, wars, human and animal abuse take up so much time, money and headspace that we are wasting our time living in fear, watching news stories of pointless wars and violence when we could be helping those in real need such as those suffering because of natural occurrences such as earthquakes, droughts, famines, diseases and tsunamis throughout the world.

The media vegans who have fallen off the vegan wagon, were never on the wagon to begin with, look at some of their you tube videos; they follow trends, they try the latest craze like water fasting, they are not about ethics they are about popularity and money.  They are vein, superficial and down right fakes.  Some of these so called ‘vegans’ have been exposed, Rawvana, a popular YouTuber with over 400k followers was caught on camera eating fish, she off course then posted a video explaining why she is no longer vegan.

Numerous others have made videos to explain ‘why I’m no longer vegan’, some give health reasons, but none of the reasons are directly associated with a vegan diet, they just use it as an excuse because they weren’t doing it for the animals, you can’t go from the realisation of animal slavery, torture, abuse and murder, then think its okay, because when you see the truth, only someone either not switched on or wicked would think it was acceptable.

 

Why You Should Ignore Other People’s Opinions!

Why should you ignore other people’s opinions?  Because all that matters in your life, is your opinion of yourself, you may or may not take other’s advice, but when it comes to you, trust your own instincts.   This is sometimes easier said than done, for example when someone says something negative to you, this can easily bring down your mood.  What you need to remember, is that people have their own agendas that form their own opinions, it is just their opinion, it is NOT fact.  If you remember that, you will not go far wrong.

Other people’s opinions are often wrong when it comes to you, you know yourself better than anyone, trust your own instincts, if you don’t, start getting to know yourself better through mindful meditation and journaling, these are two practices that over time will teach you more about yourself than you ever knew possible.  People get it wrong all the time, many successful people were ‘wrote off’ and rejected by people who gave them the wrong opinion, even doctors have got it wrong, we have all heard of people who were given a terminal diagnosis and told they only have weeks or months to live,  ten years on their still going strong.

Other people don’t view life the way you do, because they have not had your experiences, your insights, their journey is different, therefore how can they possibly know better than you, they don’t.  You know the answers, whether you believe that or not, all the answers to every question you have are inside you.

The reason you do need to practice self-awareness techniques, is because even you can get it wrong about yourself, self reflection and meditation can help you see the truth, not some distorted version of you that are based on negative thoughts.

If you buy into their compliments, you buy into their criticisms, you know you better than anyone else does, listen to yourself, don’t big yourself up, don’t put yourself down, congratulate / celebrate your achievements no matter how small!

Recommended U.K. Online Petitions for Animals and the Environment!

These are just some of the online petitions I have signed today for the animals and the environment.  Take a minute to have a browse and sign those you agree with.  Hurry though, these will expire at some point!

The U.K. government responds to all petitions that get more than 10,000 signatures.

Parliament considers all petitions that get more than 100,000 signatures for a debate.

Some may think armchair activism is useless, but change often starts with discussions, people need to let government know what they want and this is one way of doing it.

What’s it really like to be Vegan!

So, what is it really like to be Vegan? this blog post is from my personal point of view and bare in mind I have only been Vegan since November 2018.

The weeks leading up to going Vegan felt like I was opening my eyes for the first time, seeing the true horrors of how we enslave, torture and kill animals for food, entertainment, fashion and other products.  Feeling that I had been lied to all my life by schools, parents, health professionals, corporations and governments.  Some of these did not realise they were passing down lies to the next generation because they too had been conditioned or brainwashed, just like we all have.  Eating animals is so entrenched in societies now that people think of vegans as ‘extreme’ or ‘weird’.

For the first 8 weeks or so, once I had made the connection, I cried, I felt (and still do) tormented, angry, uncomfortable, frustrated and isolated in my vegan world.  I am ashamed to be human because we cause so much devastation to animals, the planet and other people.  Each day is different, one emotion will dominate on certain days than others.  I feel I have to watch what I say because I seem to upset people and I am often shocked and surprised at some people’s reactions, mainly defensive, they feel attacked, even though I am just talking of my experiences or saying how I feel, I don’t tell anyone they should stop eating animals.  However, maybe I go to far, maybe people’s defences go up, I will give you an example, I said ‘pigs are beautiful’ as I now believe all animals are, I said they are childlike, innocent and like puppy dogs.  I got laughed at and told ‘pigs are disgusting’, I responded ‘so disgusting that you eat them’, oh dear I touched a nerve, I was told I have gone ‘weird’ since my dog died.  

Pigs are not dirty animals, yes they like to roll in mud but so do elephants, it keeps them cool, so why don’t we call elephants dirty? because we don’t have to lower their moral value to justify eating them.  We don’t eat animals we hold in regard, but despite their differences they all feel pain and suffering and for the first time in my life I am seeing all animals as having their own unique personalities.

I have been accused of verbally ‘attacking’ someone, nothing could have been further from the truth, from where I was standing I didn’t throw one insult but I received them.  Unfortunately this is common, I hear the word ‘rubbish’,  if I quote accepted scientific fact about the effects of animal agriculture on the planet for example.  I am often cut off mid sentence, I believe this is because people don’t want to hear the truth because they know their conscience will struggle.   This is quite key for me, I believe I went vegan because my mind was ‘completely’ open, not just a little open but completely open, this helped me see things for how they really are.  Strangely enough, I am seeing a lot of things for how they are, not just in relation to veganism.

There are times I feel quite alienated from people, I feel like I have nothing in common anymore with a lot of people, I am unable to relate and they don’t understand me because of my new view of the world, a view I would not change for anything.  I see it as a forward step, I no longer participate in knowingly harming animals, the planet or people in developing countries.  Whilst we all impact in some way on the planet, animals and other people, I am trying my best to minimise my impact.

I did meet up recently with a vegan friend for lunch and she really ‘got’ me, she understood everything I expressed, she has been vegan for a few years now and was vegetarian for 35 years before going vegan.  This was the first time, I felt I could express my feelings and she understood me completely, she had been through all I was experiencing now and this made me feel so much better, less alienated.

I view things very differently, for example a trip to the supermarket is now like a trip to a slaughterhouse, I know this sounds crazy but I am extremely uncomfortable walking past the meat aisles, I can’t even look at the meat on the shelves, I no longer see food products, I think of where it came from and the suffering associated with it.  It makes me feel sad and repulsed, it is a very strange feeling, why didn’t I see meat this way before?  I cannot believe the amount of meat and animal products that are in the supermarket, it is dominated by animal products, why have I not seen this before?  Why can’t other people see it? and how can I help them to see in a way that they will come to their own conclusion.

I am glad I am alive now, I would not want to be here in the future after we have destroyed the planet and maybe even each other.  Future generations will look back and say ‘why didn’t they do something? the warning signs were there and they selfishly chose to ignore it’.  Change doesn’t happen overnight, what we do now will impact on future generations, but, what if that impact happened in 12 months or 6 months time, would we change now? of course we would, but sadly that sense of urgency is not there.  Imagine if the selfish actions of past generations left us with a dismal world and future, we would be calling them for everything, but why aren’t we calling us and making changes now.  Because all humans seek acceptance and happiness and this capitalist world tells us ‘products’ make us happy, and purchasing these products which coincidently makes the minority rich, again we are being brainwashed, going through life with our mind and subsequently eyes shut, humanity is on the wrong path.

Ask yourself why the truths of animal abuse are covered up, it takes undercover activists to infiltrate to secretly film this abuse, why aren’t these documentaries shown on national television? you just won’t see it.  All I ask is that you question the way things are.

You need a strong social movement  to change the current situation because it is all to do with financial profits, not people’s health or the planet, in fact animal agriculture damages these.  It is wrong on every imaginable level, but it is profitable and as long as it is profitable it will continue. However, if the number of vegans continue to grow, it will become unprofitable, thats when real change will happen. Animals need us, they cannot fend for themselves, because humans don’t fight fair, I am more spiritual than religious, but if  judgement day ever comes, god help us!

The physical pain and torture these animals suffer is bad enough, but the psychological damage inflicted on these animals may be even worse.  Imagine a life where you are confined to a space where you cannot stretch, you can’t walk or run, don’t see natural daylight or feel the sun, imagine you live like this your whole life? then you are sent to slaughter.  Suffering is suffering, it doesn’t matter who it is happening to.  Life has enough suffering, but unnecessary suffering is indescribable.  If there is a hell, the worse I could imagine is being a laboratory animal, a cow, sheep, chicken, rabbit, or fox, it would be my worse nightmare to be born into a life of torture, slavery, abuse and then meet a violent end.

Remember, governments and corporations will try to demonise animal activists and vegans, just like they have historically others that wanted change for equality and justice. Nelson Mandela was once deemed a terrorist, he served 27 years in prison.  He fought against apartheid, as views changed over time, Mandela was no longer deemed a terrorist and went on to become the president of South Africa.  Just like Mandela, animal activists are not terrorists and just like South Africa, I believe the world will ‘wake up’ to the truth because once the truth is out there, it’s impossible to deny.  If you want to play your part in changing the world, start with seeking out the truth for yourself!

 

 

Humanity on the Wrong Path!

I have been struggling lately and overwhelmed as I realise that humanity is on the wrong path, big time!  The things we focus on are distracting us from tackling the real issues in this world; wars, hunger, poverty, animal and human abuse, climate change, disease, etc.

We focus on material wealth, social media, bitching, envy, we pander to corporations instead of facing the reality of the injustice and cruelty in this world.  We look down on refugees when all they want is their basic human rights; a life without conflict and war, a life where they have food and clean drinking water, a life where they have adequate shelter and warmth, a life where they can feel secure and safe.  Where is our compassion? for ourselves? for others?  Why are most of us not enraged at the injustices going on in this world.

The media and government are constantly putting distractions in our way, and we allow it.  In the UK, it is currently ‘Brexit’ dominating news topic, it is an absolute farce and has been from the start.  British citizens voted ‘blind’ in the referendum, those who voted to leave were told lies by political parties.  Lies such as the UK would save millions of pounds per week if we left the EU, money that would be spent on the NHS …. this was a lie!  Lies were told about immigration, that it would dramatically reduce, wrong, these were false promises because the details of leaving had not been negotiated, people voted for the unknown, the implications and consequences both short and long term were unknown then and they still are.  In my opinion the referendum should be unlawful, but unlike most people, politicians seem to sit outside of the law on matters such as the future of the country.

Try to see through these distractions, because that is what they are, these are man-made issues, difficulties created by us, the real cost of Brexit is unknown, but the British people will feel the consequences for a long long time to come whether good or bad.  Opt out of this madness by refusing to give it your attention, it is out of our (British Citizens) hands for now.  Let’s start focusing on bettering this world, starting with yourself by healing yourselves, meditation, self love, compassion for all, both human and non-human.

I feel incredibly sad right now because not only is the world we live in selfish and greedy, there are not enough people who even recognise this let alone want to change it.  People are suffering and dying unnecessarily and we do nothing apart from sympathise when we watch the news.  When that story disappears, because the media chooses to dominate it with political farces such as Brexit, we ignorantly forget about the horrendous hardships people in the world are facing.

The unnecessary suffering we inflict on animals via multiple mediums is abhorrent, we enslave, torture and slaughter them to eat them; we dump our rubbish in the oceans, causing suffering and death to many marine life, we kill marine animals by fishing and as a consequence kill many more through by-kill, drift nets, beautiful creatures of the ocean and we treat them vilely, with absolutely no appreciation of life.  If you can’t appreciate the lives of others, both human and non-human then you can’t appreciate your own life.  Most of us would not deliberately hurt any animal or fish, but we are happy for it to go on, if we close our eyes we do not see the suffering, but your sub-conscious knows the truth.

I dream of a beautiful world where we treat others with the same compassion we would treat those close to us, where we treat all animal life with the equal amount of compassion, life is beautiful, if we let it be!  Please take responsibility for the consequences of what you do in your life, what you eat, what you purchase, how you spend your time, how you treat all life.

Some of the things you can do to make a change:

  • Don’t eat, use or wear animals products
  • Avoid plastic
  • Only purchase cruelty friendly products, look for the ‘bunny’ logo
  • Stop being selfish
  • Opt out or minimise social media interactions, only comment or like something that is ethical, compassionate or you feel very strongly about, stop giving attention to dangerous idiots who promote selfishness, materialism and greed, instead give your attention to those who are trying to make changes for the better, especially that benefit others, the planet and all that inhabit the planet.
  • Take a moment to think about the suffering we inflict on others either directly, indirectly or through ignorance.
  • Make a vow to change.  today I will vow to start writing to corporations to make changes, corporations will only make changes if it affects their profits, if millions of letters are received by a company to stop animal testing, they will change.  We let corporations dictate to us, let’s turn the tables with our cash, so we dictate to them what we want.
