Animal Liberation is Human Liberation

Welcome to Peace to All Beings. Until we liberate animals from human exploitation and violence, we cannot expect to have true freedom and peace for ourselves. We human beings can awaken to our higher consciousness and embrace a new paradigm of living in harmony, rather than in fear and domination. We can become "Homo Ahimsa," my term for a new nonviolent and kind human, but we must make that choice together. There is hope for our species--hope that we will not continue this war against animals and the earth. Together let us co-create a new culture and heal the wounds humanity has caused to the earth, to each other, and to the animals who share this world with us.

Loving the Whole World

This is a wonderful poem/prayer quoted from Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov.  I often think of this when I am walking in nature.  It reminds me how deeply connected we are to all of life and how much joy it brings us to be in the silence and feel the wonder of life all around us--The Divine Mystery.

Love all God's Creation,

The whole of it and
every grain of sand.


Love every leaf,

Every ray of God's Light!


Love the Animals,

Love the plants,

Love Everything.

If you love everything,


You will perceive the
Divine Mystery in things.

And once you have perceived it, you
 will begin to comprehend it
ceaselessly more and more every day.


And you will at last come
to love the whole world
with an abiding,
Universal Love.
