VegInspiration. Post-rational Intuitive

Will Tuttle : January 27, 2010

Bonsai Moon by h.koppdelaney.

Post-rational intuitive knowing can be born as a sense of being connected with all beings. No longer being merely a parade of conditioned thoughts revolving around a sense of being a separate self, we can sense more deeply into the nature of being and begin to know outside the limitations of linear thinking. With this comes an understanding that our essential nature is not evil, confined, selfish, or petty, but is eternal, free, pure, and is of the essence of love. Photo: H.K.

VegInspiration. Minds and Consciousness

Will Tuttle : January 26, 2010

Buddha is a Bridge by h.koppdelaney.

Our minds and consciousness are almost completely unexplored territory because we have been raised in a herding culture that is fundamentally uncomfortable with introspection. Our science blatantly ignores consciousness as an unapproachable, unquantifiable and unopenable “black box” and distracts us with focusing solely on measurable phenomena. Our religions discourage meditation and reduce prayer to a dualistic caricature of asking and beseeching an outside, enigmatic, and projected male entity. Photo: H.K.

VegInspiration. Meditate for World Peace

Will Tuttle : January 26, 2010

To meditate for world peace, to pray for a better world, and to work for social justice and environmental protection while continuing to purchase the flesh, milk, and eggs of horribly abused animals exposes a disconnect that is so fundamental that it renders our efforts absurd, hypocritical, and doomed to certain failure.

VegInspiration. Inner Peace

In search of peace by Bindaas Madhavi.

Disconnecting and desensitizing in comfort is not the same as inner peace, which is the fruit of awareness and of living in alignment with the understanding that comes from this awareness.

VegInspiration. Spiritual Teachings of Interconnectedness

Will Tuttle : January 24, 2010

Spiritual teachings of our interconnectedness and the vegan ethic of universal compassion, besides being vital and transformative, are in profound alignment with the core instruction of the world’s religions, which is to love others.

VegInspiration. Spiritual Evolution

The Old Tree by ~jjjohn~.

Learning to look the other way brings spiritual death in everyone who practices it. In encouraging it, religious institutions show how far they have strayed from the passionate mercy and all-seeing kindness taught and lived by those whose spiritual evolution and illumination inspired the institutions themselves.

VegInspiration. Domination & Exlusion

Farmers' Market by NatalieMaynor.

Judging by the generally small numbers who have actually gone vegan in our culture, it appears that this commitment requires a certain breakthrough that has been generally elusive because of the mentality of domination and exclusion we’ve all been steeped in since birth. There is something about veganism that is not easy, but the difficulty is not inherent in veganism, but in our culture. Photo: Natalie Maynor

VegInspiration. Living a Vegan Life

Fruit Market / Vietnam, Saigon by flydime.

Living a consequent vegan life naturally encourages us to awaken from the consensus trance that brings unquestioning conformity and allows cruelty and slavery to continue. Refusing to see animals as commodities, we are able to see through countless other pretenses. And, as transformative as this is for an individual to experience, it would be infinitely more transformative for our culture to do so, and to evolve beyond the obsolete orientation that sees animals as mere food commodities.

VegInspiration. Transform & Awaken

Yoga on Beach n° 7 by Amre Ghiba - Le Batteur de Lune.

Every one of us, as representatives of our culture, is an essential part of the fundamental transformation and awakening. It is exciting to contemplate educational, economic, governmental, religious, medical, and other institutions based on honoring and protecting the rights and interests of both animals and humans. When as a culture we stop commodifying creatures, a new world of kindness, fairness, cooperation, peace, and freedom will naturally unfold in human relations as well Photo: Amre Ghiba

VegInspiration. Feeding the Shadow

Shadow by Rickydavid.

Every day, we cause over thirty million birds and mammals and forty-five million fish to be fatally attacked so we can eat them, and it’s universally considered to be good food for good people. With these meals, we feed our shadow, which grows strong and bold as it gorges itself on our repressed grief, guilt, and revulsion. Photo: Rick David
