Cats, dogs, rabbits, cows, fish, koalas, wolves, bears, humans. Our society wants to make a difference and then justify our use, abuse and killing for taste, pleasure or convenience, based on this difference.
However, we are all one, we are all consciousness, we all love, we all feel, we are. If we sow suffering, we reap suffering. We all have a purpose, to serve, to be a light, not to hurt or use (all animal products and the treatment of animals as commodities are hurting animals).
We need to extend our love and compassion to everyone. Everyone wants to live. If we hurt another being, we hurt ourselves. In order to kill someone, we have to violate this individual's love and wants, we have to crush hopes, destroy a family and friend relationships; We have to sacrifice part of our inner love and compassion; we have to say to ourselves that 'I don't care' in order to take someone's purpose and life. And this has destroyed us, destroyed our society. The reason why people inflict violence and suffering upon others is the lack of empathy and love to others. If we instead would reinforce love and empathy at each meal by living a vegan lifestyle, instead of destroying parts of our love and empathy at each meal by hurting and killing someone for 'convenience' or taste, we would surely attain world peace. As long as we sow violence and wars by our eating choices, our society and culture will be absorbed in violence and wars. By stealing the purpose of nonhuman and human animals, we lose our own purpose. By hurting others, we hurt ourselves.
We should stop hurting our family. We should treat everyone with love, compassion and nonviolence, i.e. go vegan (i.e. stop using, exploiting, enslaving, hurting, killing and eating animals).
We already do believe in this, we already to believe it is unethical to inflict unnecessary suffering and death upon other animals [More reasoning in this article: http://www.abolitionistapproach.com/what-michael-vick-taught-us/#.UZfcIMp5eWI ].
I highly recommend World Peace Diet by Will Tuttle, www.worldpeacediet.org
It is a very transformative book. I became vegan this autumn and this book has helped me alot. Also the website www.vegankit.com contains many good resources. A good vegan health documentary showing the benefits of vegan health, and how detrimental animal products are for our health: http://www.adelicatebalance.com.au/
