Mother Nature’s Secret: A Charming Vegan Tale by Marian Hailey-Moss, Part 3 of 6

“Okay! This is the secret: farm animals and pet animals and human beings are all the same. Does everybody here love their mothers? Does everybody here have friends? Have feelings of being sad, happy, loving? Do you bleed when you are cut? Do you need shelter and food? Does everybody here like to look at the stars and the sunrise and flowers? Do you like to play? And most of all, do you want to keep living your life?” The answer was a resounding “yes” to all the question. “There’s your proof! You are all the same.”

Al-Hafiz Basheer Ahmad Masri: Islamic Concern for Animals

Al-Hafiz Basheer Ahmad Masri: Islamic Concern for Animals

How animals’ role in nature cannot be understood without first acknowledging the relationship and responsibility of humans toward animals. In recent years, many important contributions made by modern naturalists have opened the doors to an improved human attitude toward animals. Let’s take a moment to reflect on Allah and the magnitude of Hiers marvelous creations. And scientific proof showing that animals communicate not only amongst themselves, but with humans as well, both to express themselves socially or to share biological needs. Animals, just like humans, have the right to peacefully access the resources of nature provided by Allah.

Mother Nature’s Secret: A Charming Vegan Tale by Marian Hailey-Moss, Part 1 of 6

Since I’ve been meditating, I’ve become vegan; of course, and much more aware of what happens to animals in the world. It’s like you have to do something with this knowledge; you want to tell people about it. So, I can’t dance it, can’t act it. So, I write it, and you learn as you go along. How I found the illustrator, I googled, children’s illustrators, and I saw Marc Chalvin and immediately I knew that was the one. He’s French, and English is not his first language, And I never met him, but we do all our things. So, all our communication is through the script.

”God Takes Care of Everything”: Spanish Version

”God Takes Care of Everything”: Spanish Version

"Xe Gong's Affection for Dragons" Once there was a man named Xe Gong, who had an affection for dragons. In his house, everything, including furniture, ornaments and clothing, were all decorated with patterns of dragons. One day, the Dragon King in Heaven was so touched that he decided to descend to Earth to let Xe Gong see him. Hi! How are you? Wah!Xe Gong fainted in fear. So, what he loved was not the "real" dragon, but only "false" dragons in the images.We all believe in Shakyamuni Buddha of 2,500 years ago, yet we cannot believe that a Buddha could manifest into different appearances and come to Earth to save sentient beings life after life. Is this not similar to Xe Gong's affection for dragons?

Living in a Mindful Universe: Interview with Dr. Eben Alexander & Ms. Karen Newell, Part 4 of 4

Once you realize the brain is not the producer of consciousness at all, you find that meditation can be an incredibly rich source of healing, of insight, of guidance, of connecting with souls, the departed loved ones. I use sacred acoustic tones to great effect of returning to my NDE and developing my relationship with beings, entities, and especially with that infinitely healing force of unconditional love, that God force at the Core of all that is. The most direct ascent towards oneness with that Divine power and accomplishing our soul journey in this incarnation is to manifest unconditional love for all fellow beings.

Living in a Mindful Universe: Interview with Dr. Eben Alexander & Ms. Karen Newell, Part 3 of 4

Essentially, we are one with the universe. Realize the connectedness of all life, that we’re really here to take care of each other and really build that in from the ground up so that our youngest children realize that the greatest value is helping others. There’s plenty of wealth in this would to go all around, but we need to know how to distribute that in a better fashion that is more serving to the original intent of every soul who incarnates. Surely this dream may soon be realized!

Living in a Mindful Universe: Interview with Dr. Eben Alexander & Ms. Karen Newell, Part 2 of 4

And the best analogy I can use is like on the oscillating edge of a black hole, where you oscillate between just the pure oneness of the divine, infinite loving force of the core of the universe, and the first separation from that oneness into the many different layers all the way down into the material world. What they really come back telling us is that we are here to love each other. We are here to take care of the least, the last, and the lost, and not to compete of resources, but in fact to manifest that love for others, showing kindness and compassion.

When Lama Govinda met Domo Geshe Rinpoche, the lightest touch of Guru’s hands on his head, sent a stream of bliss through his whole being. Simply to be in His presence, was enough to solve all problems, just as darkness disappears in the presence of light. The Guru told him: “If you wish me to be your Guru, do not look upon my person as the Guru, because every human personality has its shortcomings, and so long as we are engaged in observing the imperfections of others, we deprive ourselves of the opportunities of learning from them.”

Discover “Inside of a Dog”: From a Dog’s Point of View

While humans tend to perceive the world through our eyes, dogs rely on their extraordinaty sense of smell. Dr. Horowitz writes: "As we see the world, a dog smells it. The dog's universe is a fascinating place of odors, one on top of the other. The world of scents is as rich a place as the world of sights. "Dogs don't act on the world by handling objects or by eyeballing them, as people might, or by pointing and asking others to act on the object (as the timid might); instead, they bravely stride right up to a new, unknown object, stretch their magnificent snouts within millimeters of it, and take a nice deep sniff."
