After going vegan I simply could not stop thinking about a one thing: humans and non-humans are of the same construct. We all form tribes of shared beliefs, we create tools that aid our overall well-being in our lives, we love, we sometimes disagree and throw faeces, rocks or small metal pebbles, sometimes even larger pebbles that are somewhat radioactive at each other to prove something. By we I mean all species of this place.
What if aliens were not that different than we are? This is what I think they see us like. Scared, confused by unknown technology, however they seem to appreciate curiosity of the select few who chose to stay, overcome the fear and want to investigate what is going on.

So, you have a truck. Not just any truck. You’ve set your truck at proper height for the offroad, just half of inch below suspension height limits set by public road officials. You tinkered around your truck and know that every time something sounds bad you just have to get it done and fixed, up to speed. You answer to no-one, except The Almighty, and your mother in law. You tread on no-one. You know what the difference makes putting a match ammo through your gun and cheap one. And despite your best intentions you sometimes have to yield to the dollar or to the doctor. What if there was a better way to get things done within own means?

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 love feels :) Although not really you can synthesise love through imagination, you can only truly bind on the soul level in an honest to God way.

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 :)

I have put my current knowledge of freeing and empowering know-how from all over the planet into a book. This article was a starting point, but there is way way more cool stuff out there. My book is called “Generation HEAL”, and you can learn more about it and download it for free on it’s website GenerationHEAL.com, or get a local copy from here.
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.
