I have never wept for our planet like I have while watching Cowspiracy. I generally refrain from sharing my vegan lifestyle in a way where it might “upset” others. I have realized that my purpose here is to help others along this human journey and to help Earth and it’s other inhabitants. I’ve decided to post about Cowspiracy and tell you to watch it if you haven’t because you’re being lied to, because our planet is dying, and because there is the possibility we’ll see the animal agriculture industry’s devastating effects on our planet in insane ways during our lifetime. This isn’t some hippie documentary, it’s backed and produced by Leonardo Dicaprio if that adds any weight. It’s getting real now, it’s not just about our children’s futures, it’s about ours as well. There is no more time left to say that you can’t live without cheese or that my views are impeding on your personal choice. It’s not a personal choice when eating animals during an unsustainable time affects all of us on this planet. It’s no longer a personal choice when 91% of rainforest destruction is because of the animal agriculture industry and species are being killed in the process. The environmental community and organizations that are there to help this planet are failing us. I canceled my membership with Greenpeace because as a large environmental activist group, they’re being silenced when it comes to the animal agriculture industry’s devastating effects on the planet. They are just one of several organizations that are sweeping this #1 issue under the rug. Educate yourself so that we can repair the damage we’ve made to our home. It won’t be here much longer if we keep ignoring the facts. I honestly believe we’re here to do more than mass produce animals to the point where it’s killing us and the planet and letting these corporations rake in the money. We don’t take any of these accumulated material possessions with you when we die so there must be more to it than that. Light and love always 💕✨

You may win the battle, Mother Nature wins the war

Human history is plagued with wars of all magnitudes - it’s just who we are, but what happens long after the infantryman, air support and vehicle operators are gone? Mother Nature takes over. This crowdsourced series takes aim at the hoards of abandoned armored tanks scattered across the world’s expansive battlefields, and aids in glorifying the anti-war sentiment that war is everlasting.

I am as deep as a bottomless ocean
A beautiful commotion
Withholding mysteries

I am a cave full of dark little secrets
An echo of my forebears
A zealous history

I am a sentry of pale moons and twilight
Of intricate silence
And storms that pacify

I am a dreamer, a fierce make-believer
A trilogy of stories
And scars that tell no lies

I am a siren with courage of lions
A mother of dragons
A vessel of desire

I am a whisper of magical rituals
A handful of wishes
A temple of wildfire

I am a sister, a woman, and a listener
An oracle of instinct
A consecrated womb

I am an ocean, a chalice of devotion
I walk beneath the sunshine
And love beneath the moon
