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.

From Racism to Speciesism with Gratitude to MLK

I send out a weekly update to the Prayer Circle for Animals.  This message went out today on Martin Luther King Day.  If you would like to sign up for these updates and/or join the Prayer Circle for Animals, please click here

Our prayers for all animals continue to circle the earth, to uplift humanity’s consciousness,
and to bless the animals themselves. Thank you for joining people around the world who are
 praying this prayer in many different languages but all with the same love:

Today we honor Martin Luther King, Jr., for all the great work he did toward bringing an end to racism. He lived what he taught and believed. He confronted the evil of racism with, in his words, “the power of love.”

As animal liberationists, we confront the evil of speciesism with the power of love. We all know that racism is still with us, but it has diminished significantly because of the courage of those who could see and speak the truth. The fact that racism has diminished is a beacon of hope for us. In the same way, we are seeing speciesism begin to be understood by people and the number of people transforming their lives to vegan nonviolence increasing.

Just as MLK taught that we must be nonviolent and compassionate to all people, we are taking the next big step in human consciousness evolution and expanding the circle of nonviolence and compassion to include all beings.

On another note, our campaign to free the Topeka Zoo elephants is still on. We have erected two billboards in Topeka, KS, and they are causing quite a stir. Please pray for Tembo and Sunda that they will finally be set free to The Elephant Sanctuary. There is a lot of information on, including a “how to help” page. Tembo and Sunda need your prayers, and I believe they will be able to feel your love surrounding them.

May all beings, including all people, be happy and free.
