We must shake the old stagnation and comfortable disconnections out of
our minds and bodies, embrace the evolutionary urge within us to awaken
compassion and intuitive wisdom, and live our lives in accord with the
truth that we are connected intimately with all living beings.
Achieving this transformation means living the truth of love and
authentically comprehending our interconnectedness, and not merely
talking about it. It means changing our thinking and our behavior‚Äîhow
we view animals and what we eat. As we recognize our shadow and become
free of it, compassion returns and we naturally stop feeding it with
our diet of hidden terror.
