Buckminster Fuller: recognize destructive attitudes and practices as obsolete
Buckminster Fuller often emphasized that the way of cultural transformation is not so much in fighting against destructive attitudes and practices, but in recognizing them as being obsolete and offering positive, higher-level alternatives.
The competitive, violent, commodifying mentality of the ancient herding cultures is, in our age of nuclear weapons and global interconnectedness, profoundly obsolete, as is eating the animal foods of these old cultures, which are unhealthy in the extreme both to our body-minds and to our precious planetary ecology.
Prayer Circle for Tuesday
Today let us send our prayers to all the “companion animals” suffering homelessness, abuse, and/or lives in breeding mills.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all “companion animals” who are suffering at the hands of human beings.
Dear dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs, rabbits, snakes, mice, turtles, birds, ferrets, sugar gliders, frogs, and so many others. We pray for you that you may have peace and joy in this precious life of yours.
Some of you want to live free of human interference, and some of you truly want to be part of your human family. We bear witness to your suffering; we do what we can to end your suffering and to encourage others to do the same; and we continually send out an energy field of love and compassion to comfort you and to transform the hearts and souls of those who support the cruelty and oppression of each of you.
Our love is all around you. Compassion encircles the earth for each of you and for all beings.
