Let There Be Peace on Earth



I have published 4 parts of the series “A pilgrimage called life” this is only a portion of the 7th part in the series, which will be published much later under the title the spirit of humans in spite of suffering


I felt like publishing it sooner for the sake of Peace on Earth



The bible says



Matthew 5:9---Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God


Hebrews 12:14--- Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord


1 Peter 3:11---They must turn from evil and do good; they must seek peace and pursue it.


1 Thessalonians 5:15---Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else


1 Peter 3:9-11---Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.







Hey Christians! how did you miss this little fellow on his bicycle in Syria
Turn back your giant war ships
Arm your missiles
Zoom in your satellites
Man your war rooms
Call “action stations”
Scramble your jets
Go to war
Go get him


You all have done this before haven’t you; remember Shin’s tricycle






Along with the remains of his child a father buried this tricycle which was his child’s favourite toy; this happened after the atom bomb attack in Hiroshima; the tricycle is now displayed in the  memorial dome—the tricycle of shinichi kodama, the toddler








Remember this lunch box of a first year junior school student, a few days after the Hiroshima bombing the mother found her sons body with the lunch box clutched under his stomach, the atom bomb had turned his lunch into nothing but charred remains—the lunch box of little Shigeru orimen, which is also at display in the Hiroshima memorial dome



Come on go get this little fellow and his small bike, hit him hard; that is what you all have been doing one after another




A new President but the same story repeats, Christians have once again manned the war rooms, shattering the mother Earth with the mother of all bombs


No president has ever won the war against drugs or won the war on terror on the contrary they have made it worst



You can wipe out cities but you will never break the spirit of the human race…………..

Look at this image of a family, finding their happiness amidst destruction







The earth is a witness to much greater crimes


People more cruel than American presidents have walked on earth


It is her sad destiny that more people have walked on Earth carrying a sword than carrying flowers in their hands



In an age where printer ink is more expensive than human blood only if more Americans saw the reality of war, there would be a lot more people against it.




War on terror in a nutshell








Why do we have wars?

Because we are ruled by an elite group of psychopaths who own the banks that control the governments and media. They fund both sides of war for profit and they manufacture the consent of the public through the propaganda of the media








I ask this fundamental question; if the one who carried his own cross was amongst us today; who would he bomb?
He is not amongst us but he is certainly in our hearts and I once again ask this question-- Who would Jesus bomb?




I’d rather hurt your feelings by posting the truth about war
Then remain silent while children are being murdered over lies from politicians and the corporations that control them





If seeing the flag burned makes you want to fight
Imagine how you would feel towards someone who bombed your kids








Soldier you love your child, I guess all the people of the world love their children





Whenever this question comes to my mind; why is the world like this? Why so much hate?  In deep contemplation, I get this answer in form of a question; do you love all your neighbours, all your colleagues and everyone around you. Do you nurse any grudges.
If I think of changing this world; I require to start with me, for only if I change then some other will change this will go on till the ideologies of world leadership change (I have written about collective consciousness in part 3)
We need to develop compassion and to awaken and bring forth the enlightened one residing in us  




During The Second World War the US lost 0.32% of its population and during the Korean war, North Korea lost close to 30 % of its population as a result of US led bombings in the 1950s destroying North Korea’s 78 cities and thousands of her villages and now once again the US wants to go to war with North Korea because they test fire missiles into the sea which hurt no one


Recent statistics:

People killed by North Korean missiles---none
People killed by US missiles---no one has a count



The American people are so nice, America was such a great nation, and look what it has been reduced to.
All the bad karma which the American leaders have accumulated, who will pay for it, every bomb which is dropped will come back to the American soil by the law of karma and I shudder to think of the suffering the American people will have to go through
Even the Gods cannot escape the law of karma
(I will the above in detail in part 7)





Hope the little fellow with his bike is still alive in Syria



    
Some true Christians have written and sung this (I came across this song today)

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me;
Let there be peace on earth,
The peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father
Brothers all are we,
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me,
Let this be the moment now;
With every step I take,
Let this be my solemn vow

To take each moment and live each moment
In peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.


OM shanti shanti shanti OM

A Pilgrimage called Life---part 4





If the video window does not display, just click on it



Animals our fellow creatures


I have added this article to the series “A pilgrimage called life” because we cannot say that we are on a pilgrimage called life if we are unkind to our fellow creatures with whom we share this planet



This article is written to highlight the sufferings the birds and animals go through during the process they are converted to food, and I ask this fundamental question “is non vegetarian food worth the suffering the animals go through”




A few spiritual teachings are written at the end of this blog




In later articles I will write about the psychic power of animals




There is a reason you take your children fruit picking, will you take them to a slaughter house?

Quote: “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.” ~Paul McCartney







Videos of standard practices in all animal industries

Would you put a baby chick inside a grinding blender---that’s what the egg industry does each time a male chick comes into the world, this process is called chick culling, some say that the remains are used to make chicken nuggets








Watch the videos that will change your perception of eggs







video




video




And by the way egg is chicken menstruation




In the picture we see baby goat embryos that were still in their mothers' womb while the mothers were brutally killed. The worker is cutting off the baby goats to generate extra profit







No bacon is worth the suffering pigs in the meat industry experience all around the world



Helpless pigs for sale at a meat market in Vietnam





A terrified pig with a giant tumor on his face heads to the slaughterhouse. His flesh will be eaten by humans in the next few days.





The image below is even more heart-breaking when you consider the psychology behind the behaviour of the pigs.
Like SMALL CHILDREN, pigs believe that by hiding their faces, they are hidden from those around them.
These pigs believe that they are hidden from the slaughterhouse workers who are about to kill them.





A calf strapped to a device which is used to restrain poor babies before their horns are brutally cut off, most of the time with no anaesthesia






In Vietnam, it is a common practice to kill cows by means of a sledgehammer.






The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong with the world





Different culture same crime







 Watch this video of a cow that gave birth hours before she was killed; after 2-3 years this young dairy cow was sent to slaughter. While she was in the waiting area of the slaughterhouse, she went into a premature labor, probably due to excessive anxiety almost 25 percent of dairy cows are pregnant when sent to the slaughter house

Animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language





Some screams can’t be heard





Super trawler fishing nets are so very big they can hold 13 jumbo jets; example the Australian government allows a daily maximum catch of 250 tonnes per ship



Federal harvest rules only allow hook-and-line fishermen and not trawlers to sell halibut, so when the halibut fish are caught along with yellowfin sole and other fish in the trawler nets they are required to dump this “bycatch” overboard, they can’t even donate the fish to a food bank. As a result, over the past decade they have jettisoned (thrown into the sea) an estimated 82 million pounds of dead or dying halibut.






Sharks are fished for their fins; once they are on the fishing boat their fins are cut and they are thrown back into the sea to die a painful slow death



In a study report published by US scientist in January 2016 they estimated the  annual global fish catch to be roughly 109 million metric tons (that is billions and billions of fishes) and the report also disclosed that 30% of global fish catch is unreported
That much suffering, slow death---Life has no value



Video of the fishing industry---life has no value


video




 watch this video of a restaurant in Los Angeles, USA: We became so numb that when we look at the plate, we see only food. We don't see an animal suffering or someone who has been tortured and killed



video




After 12 years of torture in a circus in Hawaii, this poor elephant called Tyke managed to escape injuring staff on its way out, Police then shot him 86 times which eventually killed him. The look on its eyes tells a thousand stories







Animals have feelings, love, intelligence and they want to live just like us

Animals have hearts that feel, eyes that see and families to care for...just like you and me. ~  Anthony D. Williams





Today, animal cognition (the mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses) scientists look at animals not as dumb, but as intelligent species that view the world in fundamentally different ways
Scientist have even taught bees how to play soccer


 Video---A monkey fell unconscious after being shocked by Electrical Wiring the other monkey did everything to save him


video



Video of a crab enjoying a cherry; how can someone break his limbs when he is still alive and put him in a boiling pot

Peace begins on your plate





Video  Watch this video---I will never be loved

If you cannot treat them like this




At least do not support an industry which treats them like this, they too want to be free just like you








As written in previous article on animals, after having suffered so much on Earth millions of animals go into the astral world, full of horror, terror, and shrinking from men, this creates a negative vibration which affects life on Earth, also animal spirits like human spirits can cause “spirit disturbance” which adversely affects humans as well as machinery



In the previous article on why not to eat beef I have explained that--- The shape of the forehead symbolizes intellect and intelligence; you will never find a famous person with a small forehead. The forehead is a measure of the development of the Pineal gland {also referred to as to as the third eye / seat of the soul}. Of course animals do not have foreheads but look at that area on the head of any creature Look at the head of less evolved creatures say the worm or a cockroach there is hardly any development in the pineal gland now look at the head of a cow see it has a highly developed pineal gland. Life evolves upward from levels lower than even apparent animation; animals that have a close association with human beings evolve more quickly, and are likely to be promoted sooner to the level of human evolution. { love read inverse is evol}. The slaughtering of these more highly evolved animals produces strong emotions such as fear and anger which remain as vibrations in the meat itself and increase people’s naturally aggressive and/or fearful tendencies.




One cannot be a yogi if he is on a non-vegetarian diet; since a person on a non-vegetarian diet digest badly and requires more atmospheric oxygen which has its ill effects, example a tiger which lives entirely on a flesh diet has to move to and fro even when confined in a cage in order to consume more oxygen from the air---I may write about yogis and their way of life and practices in some other articles



From the Rig Veda---may we follow the path of goodness as the sun and the moon follow their path! May we associate again (and again) with the liberal, the non-injuring, the knowing!



Animals are sentient beings (able to perceive or feel things) There is a beautiful Buddhist teaching which says that one sentient being is more precious than all the jewels of the world, the meaning of this is---there are four kingdoms; mineral kingdom then the plant kingdom then   the animal kingdom and finally the human kingdom, animals having evolved upwards from minerals and plants are hence are superior to both plant and mineral kingdom’s hence one sentient being is more precious than all the jewels of this world



Another Buddhist teaching--- Why are sentient beings so valuable? Because in order to achieve awakening we need bodhicitta (Bodhi in Buddhism is the understanding possessed by a Buddha regarding the true nature of things. It is traditionally translated into English with the word enlightenment, although its literal meaning is closer to "awakening." The verbal root "budh" means to awaken. And chitta means consciousness), and in order to generate bodhicitta we need compassion. And because compassion must be generated with respect to sentient beings, sentient beings are infinitely precious and necessary for our awakening.



A Bodhisattva is the one who is able to reach nirvana but delays doing so through compassion for suffering beings; the vow of a Bodhisattva is:-
However innumerable beings are, I vow to save them;
However inexhaustible the passions are, I vow to extinguish them;
However immeasurable the Dharmas are, I vow to master them;
However incomparable the Buddha-truth is, I vow to attain it

We can be a Bodhisattva




Myself feeding a tibetan crow at Gaumukh the origin of the Bhagirathi (Ganga) ---It is common for birds to eat from your hands in the Himalaya also animals are not aggressive in this regions where as it is not so in cities





I stopped eating non vegetarian food after I came to know the sufferings of animals and birds; but even after so many years on a vegetarian diet, every day when I pass through the market I get the smell of roast chicken and my mouth waters, I love sea food but I control myself, whenever I feel the urge to eat sea food or chicken I divert my mind by eating a sweet dish instead



Animals are Inefficient Converters of Food. It is a fact that farmed animals consume more food than they produce---Watch Leonardo DiCaprio’s film
This is the video future generations will be wishing everyone watched today ~ Leonardo DiCaprio







“Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar.” ~  Bradley Miller
