Ever since I got into cruelty free plant based way of things I started to notice some things. The more I live in it, the more I see strange detachment of peace and compassion between practice and preaching.
I guess this is more prevalent now during Easter, where people i.e. celebrate factory farmed eggs as sign of life and hope. Even if organic, still, stealing someone’s baby to celebrate it as a symbol of life even if it makes humans sick due to cholesterol? How desensitized you get to participate in this sort of massive horrible hallucination?

When I see those, some feelings come along that I believe are how true love feels :)

Life is more about of relationships than anything else. But here’s the catch, it is not limited to the persons alone, but also goes to other realms, such as things, or even imaginary construct. From that point of view it can be easy to figure out stuff down the road. Some quick examples:
You and your favorite brands of cloths/electronic – despite the choice of many things you came to certain brand that represents certain style.

This post is to say fare well to a nice view i had out of my window for the last 15 years or so. Outside of my window there used to be a meadow.

Technology is what surrounds us these days. Some say it is not natural and that we need to get back to the days of manual labor. It is what they say “more natural”.
Problem with this way of thinking is that by guilting you to abandon your dreams to better your existence, you become more time poor and more out of your mind living in pain and chasing some imaginary ghosts or reinventing the wheel so it would be more “green”.
Pro tip – all that surrounds you is nature. It is only transformed a little to make more sense and to not get in the way too much. Read the rest of this entry »

We all have it. Ability to “talk to” and “hear from” animals using non-verbal form of communication. We, all living and sentient beings, have ability to communicate with each other. This also means to be able to listen what others have to tell us.
It might be hard for you to grasp if you come from the upbringing where all of your attempts at compassion were curbed and you were forced to express your emotions only through pride and conquest. The voice deep down in your head still lives despite all of that, and still when you see pictures of cruelty against other sentient beings you turn your head, because you know that it was wrong.
Thanks to the modern media and to the internet we all can share and learn stories of “amazing” acts of non-human animals. Read the rest of this entry »

If I would anytime become a CEO of a multinational corpo, I would immediately post this job ad:
- – - ✄ – - – ✄ – - – ✄ – - -
As a CEO of Big Ass XYZ Mutinational Corpo I am happy to announce that we are looking for people with following qualities:
- Likes to have fun for sake of having fun ( like so, so or so ) – opposite of having fun to show others how much fun they are having
- Is not an idiot
- Big fan of Buffy the vampire slayer
- Respects emotional consent of others no matter how crazy their crazy is
- Is open to discuss own crazy when asked about it, but sticking by own guns until feeling on their own being ready to take a baby step beyond own boundaries
- Is a non speciesist vegan, who likes to help other beings outside of own tribe when they ask for it, but understands that predators and scavengers also have their families to feed – this requirement is void when you are coming from a community where you hunted own food. However, our cafeteria only serves vegan meals
- Created at least one tangible thing for the sake of it ( something that simply is, whether or not someone believes in its existence ) during the course of own life
- Knows how to ask for help when stuck
- Is allergic to NIH, OCD, ego, bullshit, dramas and head-games
- Knows how to do stuff so their mum doesn’t have to come in and fix it after them
- Laughed at least once at herself / himself
- Has well defined own enough
Also, a big plus would be having about 3 years of experience in doing something they like themselves doing, rather than trolling for approval or pride.
Motto of our corpo is “Getting paid for having a good time without hurting any 3rd parties”

As of now I still am not CEO of a multinational corporation, however if you are, then feel free to use this as a template for your hiring process :)

If you’re reading this, then probably you started to suspect that there might be something more to the life than doing some office job which is equivalent to chasing a laser pointer around the floor, with more or less the same tangible benefits. Here are some ideas that I stumbled on my way out of computers and into the real life. To break the 9-5 pattern of addiction where you replace own emotions with control of external beings or objects, or jumping into accumulation of things, you need few thing sorted out. Emotional – wise.

Some folks don’t get, that to have a nice life it is enough to just make what you like in your own life and sell surplus of it to others. Those who do not get it go after pushing something upon others.
The reason for spreading scare and general fear-mongering is the simple same ol’ fear based sales pitch:
“You need to buy from us because we are the only ones who are capable of protecting you from the threat.” (a.k.a. the culture of fear)
Whether or not the threat is real is totally not important, sellers go after idea of threat and not the threat itself, that is why they are so vicious about limiting freedom of speech. Who would buy their “Bogeyman Preventer 3000″ if they knew that Bogeyman does not exist?
The world did not come to an end when millennium bug hit it. However, many many people were left with the stockpiles of electric generators and canned food. The world did not fell apart during the cold-hot war times where people were up against each other with nukes primed and ready to perform genocide, but till this day the relics of that era in form of fallout shelters and abandoned nuke silo sites are all around.
Somehow the spirit of kindness prevailed and took over fears.
Below you will see some major fears and superstitions that are spread by salesman to get you spending on things that you do not need. Those FUDs (fear uncertainty doubt) are aplenty in the modern world. I chose to tackle them, by providing factual evidence on why they are wrong and how to address them. Here they are (just look at the pictures and videos if text is too much for you :P)

It might come as a surprise to you. But we do. We live to feel.
John Preston: What’s the point of your existence?
Mary: To feel. ‘Cause you’ve never done it, you can never know it. But it’s as vital as breath. And without it, without love, without anger, without sorrow, breath is just a clock… ticking.
