Animals our fellow creatures / The Earthlings documentary

IM not roast dinner, I’M someone’s baby

I stopped eating non vegetarian food after I saw the suffering the animals, birds have to undergo while being transported to and at the slaughterhouses. Example chickens are tied by their legs and hung upside down; how would humans feel when treated the same way.

Now on a vegetarian diet I feel healthier than before

From the Upanishads

May all beings be happy,
May all be healthy,
May people have the well-being of all {humans & animals} in mind,
May no body suffer in anyway.

Animals that have suffered so much on Earth; create a vibration on the astral plain which affects mankind, I quote from the book The Ancient Wisdom (1911) by  Dr Annie Besant

“…….animal astral bodies add much to the general feeling of hostility which was spoken of above, for the organized butchery of animals in slaughterhouses and by sport sends millions of these annually into the astral world, full of horror, terror, and shrinking from men.
The comparatively few creatures that are allowed to die in peace and quietness are lost in the vast hordes of the murdered, and from the currents set up by these there rain down influences from the astral world on the human and animal races which drive them yet further apart and engender “instinctive” distrust and fear on the one side and lust of inflicting cruelty on the other.
These feelings have been much intensified of late years by the coldly devised methods of the scientific torture called vivisection, the unmentionable barbarities of which have introduced new horrors into the astral world by their reaction on the culprits, as well as having increased the gulf between man and his “poor relations”.”

These  documentaries say it all

The above image is even more heartbreaking when you consider the psychology behind the behavior of the pigs.
Like SMALL CHILDREN, pigs believe that by hiding their faces, they are hidden from those around them.
These pigs believe that they are hidden from the slaughterhouse workers who are about to kill them.

A few quotes

 “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.” ~Paul McCartney

"Animals are my friends... and I don't eat my friends" ~George Bernard Shaw

"While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered beasts, how can we expect any ideal conditions on this earth?" ~George Bernard Shaw

"A man of my spiritual intensity does not eat corpses" ~George Bernard Shaw

“I choose not to make a graveyard of my body for the rotting corpses of dead animals.” ~George Bernard Shaw

"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love" ~Pythagoras

"Truely man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We live by the death of others: we are burial places! I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men" ~Leonardo da Vinci

"As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields." ~Leo Tolstoy

"Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet" ~Albert Einstein

"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages" ~Thomas Edison

"Recognize meat for what it really is: the antibiotic- and pesticide-laden corpse of a tortured animal" ~Ingrid Newkirk

"Man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the victims he intends to eat until he eats them" ~Samuel Butler

"An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language." ~ Martin Buber 

We’ve stopped selling eggs from caged hens.
Take 10 people with you into this telephone booth and you’ll understand why.

If you can’t stand watching itbeing produced, you shouldn’t be eating it.
