Hello, my name is Karina and I feel passionately about the welfare of all living beings and our amazing planet. Since this is my 1st entry on this blog, I want to share with you general thoughts of what I want to accomplish. The main purpose of this blog is to share my quest or journey or Tao of leading a compassionate life – not only for human beings but for all the beings who share this earth with us.
I very much realize that our society’s long and deeply-held cultural believe say it’s okay to treat animals badly, kill them and use them for food and other purposes to suit our needs. My journey has taken me to the conclusion that these believes are based on myths no more valid than the tooth fairy. In future blogs, I will share with you these myths, what I’ve learned in my journey so far, and why these myths are so wrong.
There are very strong ethical, health and environmental reasons why we should not be killing our fellow earth beings. Together, these reasons make a very compelling case.
I feel that someday, human beings will look surprised and shocked at our present age and wonder “What was in their heads?” “What were they thinking?” “Why did they have no compassion for the other beings on this planet?” … And finally “Why do they treat our home so badly?”
I sincerely hope that one day, in a billion homes on this planet, billions of our children’s children will ask “Grandma, did people really eat animals? … And grandma will say “Yes, but those days are, thankfully, long, long gone.”
I’m asking you to join me on this Tao: On my blog, I will have commentaries, links, feedback from you, vegan recipes, animal rights announcements….anything that will help us, as compassionate travelers on this planet, to make this vision a reality. Stay tuned!
