Clover by Amy Paasch

Clover FierceThis photo of Clover by Amy Paasch knocked me right out of my socks and back to my blog.  Oh Clover, you are so fierce and beautiful. What extraordinary character.

“We can see that the three reasons that we eat animal foods—infant indoctrination, social and market pressure, and taste—reinforce each other and create a force field around our food choices that, like a sturdy fortress, resists any incursions.The walls of the fortress are built of cruelty, denial, ignorance, force, conditioning, and selfishness. Most importantly, they are not of our choosing. They have been, and are being, forced upon us.Our well-being—and our survival—depend on our seeing this clearly and throwing off our chains of domination and unawareness. By harming and exploiting billions of animals, we confine ourselves spiritually, morally, emotionally, and cognitively, and blind ourselves to the poignant, heart-touching beauty of nature, animals, and each other.” Dr. Will Tuttle

Speciesism The Movie

IMG_9590 - Copy.small   Someone in our city of Portland Oregon rented out The Academy Theater and showed the movie, Speciesism, a documentary by Mark Devries.  The filmmaker’s determination and heart is evident as he thoroughly and passionately explores the daily worldwide holocaust of non-human animals that provides the fuel for our human animal bodies.

In the words of Dr. Will Tuttle ( who was not in this documentary):
“Because of herding animals, we have cast ourselves out of the garden into the rat race of competition and consumerism, ashamed of ourselves. It is this low self-esteem that drives the profits of corporations enriching themselves on our insatiable craving for gadgets, drugs, and entertainment to help us forget what we know in our hearts, and to cover over the moans of the animals entombed in our flesh.

The choice is set before us at every meal between the garden of life or the altar of death and as we choose life and eat grains and vegetables rather than flesh, milk, and eggs, we find our joy rising, our health increasing, our spirit deepening, our mind quickening, our feelings softening, and our creativity flourishing.”

Free Bird

Dr. Will Tuttle, author of The World Peace Diet and Madeleine Tuttle conducted a prayer vigil on Thanksgiving for the 47 million turkeys killed for this one day in the U.S.

They had the opportunity on Saturday to feed the turkeys at AnimalPlace Sanctuary in Grass Valley, CA, and Will had the opportunity to sit quietly with Jude, a turkey who had suffered terribly at the hands of humans, and had managed to hide on the day all the turkeys were removed from the turkey farm to be trucked to slaughter. A neighbor found him and rescued him. Though his body was mutilated as is routine, his open and loving heart touched Will deeply.
