A Look Inside The Modern Day Meat Industry: A Worldwide Genocide

Published

on

cow love 2 I’m sure many of you reading this are aware of the atrocities committed against animals on a worldwide scale within the modern day meat industry. According to the US department of Agriculture, nearly 10 billion animals are raised and killed for food consumption each year in the United States alone.

The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as now they look upon the murder of men – Leonardo Da Vinci

There are some very graphic videos floating around out there on the internet, they are extremely hard to watch and I didn’t want to post anything overly graphic. On the other hand, it’s hard to find footage that isn’t  graphic at all. Sometimes a good shock to the system can be beneficial to people, and really have them get in touch with their soul and have them question what they are doing.

I chose this video because it was one of the least graphic videos I could find that (at the same time) did a good job in illustrating the point i’m trying to get across. What we are doing here is not conducive to our natural state, nobody is born to accept this, we are simply programmed by mass media, addictive chemicals and programming as we grow older. What happens in the modern day meat industry is unnecessary, cruel and heartbreaking.

I believe I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t. To know that the results are profitable to the race would not remove my hostility to it. The pain which it inflicts upon non consenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further – Mark Twain

I also chose this video because I like the ending, it does a great job in stepping outside and playing the observer role. What are we doing here on planet Earth? Is it really necessary? It really hits you when you see it, so make sure you watch the video until the end.

All beings on this planet deserve the right to live, all of them have feelings, emotions and intelligence just like we do. They are full of love, compassion and care. We are supposed to live incow harmony with them. If we don’t speak for them, who will?

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

Maybe this video will inspire others to do some research, maybe it will inspire others to do their part to stop this worldwide genocide. With all of this occurring, it makes you want to push a button so you can stop it all. But operating from a place of frustration, sadness and anger is useless if we are to help and speak for our animal family.

Animals share with us the privilege of having a soul – Pythagoras

The way we treat animals is a good indicator of the compassion we are capable of for the human race – Ali McGraw

Apart from empathy, there are multiple reasons not to consume meat and dairy, please browse through our health and alternative news sections for more information. Or simply use our search bar using key words such as “meat” or diary”.

I dream of a planets where the beings that reside on it live in harmony side by side. That would be a lovely energy to bask in, wouldn’t it? Maybe on some of those other “Earth-like” planets out there ,  they get it and live in harmony with one  another. If we are to move forward, we will have to learn to live in this manner.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated – Mahatma Gandhi

If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals – Albert Einstein

“Pigs on the kill floor have come up and nuzzled me like a puppy. Two minutes later I had to kill them – beat them to death with a pipe.” – Former Slaughterhouse worker

This video does not illustrate the atrocities that go on inside of slaughter houses. I did not want to post them as they are extremely graphic and hard to watch. Hopefully this article/video alone will inspire others to further their research. What happens within those walls is animal torture.

Much Love.

Woody Harrelson Shares A Powerful Video: ‘Thoughts From Within’ He Calls It

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Woody Harrelson shares some spoken word with a deep message.

  • Reflect On:

    How do you view our current world? Does it truly resonate with you? Is it something you want to support? If you could put your energy into a world of thriving abundance, would you? Then why so much energy into the way things are?

I sit here today having been reminded of a Woody Harrelson video after watching a movie he acted in. I recalled the first time I saw this video. It was one of the first realizations I had, about 9 years ago, that many celebrities also go through life with trials and tribulations of the average person. Perhaps not in all ways, but certainly in many. This is an obvious thought of course, but sometimes not all that common.

When I saw this video, I remember thinking, wow, I love what he is sharing, and coming from his place of influence this truly has a powerful message. This is an awesome video made by Woody Harrelson sharing some powerful thoughts from within.

In the video Woddy lays out a spoken word masterpiece that touches on all of the main aspects of our current society. If you truly take the time to listen, there is much to reflect on. And of course, there is an inspiring side of it all too.

This one is a bit of a throw back, but it’s a good one. Enjoy it!

Josh Radnor From How I Met Your Mother Just Started A Conscious Band with Ben Lee

Published

on

You might be here because you are a fan of the hit TV show, How I Met Your Mother, or maybe you have fond memories of blasting “Catch My Disease” in your car on a hot summer day. Whatever the reason may be, you are about to discover a lesser-known side to actor-writer-director Josh Radnor and Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee—who now form the musical duo Radnor & Lee.

In this very first episode of Uplifted Life’s new Redefining Success Podcast, Kosta Stoyanoff and I had the privilege of having a conversation with both of them over Skype only a few days before they left for their Brazil tour. We talked about their new musical venture, the effects of having achieved success and fame at a young age, what true success ought to be, spirituality, meditation, self-development and more! Playing the hosts was definitely out of our comfort zones, but we are glad we did it and were able to extract some valuable insights from these two amazing human beings.

There is a rumor circulating that they are a religious born again band because they don’t shy away from using words like word God in their lyrics. The truth is that they do not subscribe to any particular label and are simply fascinated by life’s bigger questions. In our 30-minute conversation with them, we found them to be incredibly grounded, intelligent and wise individuals who simply strive to get back to the basics of what really matters in life and care about becoming the best and most compassionate version of themselves. It was awesome to chat with two public figures who choose to use their influence to spread a positive and conscious message through their art!

Our intention with the Redefining Success Podcast is to collect gems of wisdom from individuals who see beyond our culture’s materialistic idea of success and have discovered a more fulfilling, whole and healthy view of what it means to lead a truly successful life. We believe that doing our part in helping rewrite the cultural story surrounding success can inspire a positive change in how we lead our lives—from our relationships to the way we do business.

Like Uplifted Life for more uplifting content and stay tuned for more episodes!

Hope you enjoy the conversation and make sure to share it to inspire others!

The Oldest Song In The World – A Sumerian Hymn Written 3500 Years Ago (Listen)

Published

on

Music is a very special gift that people from all around the world, from various cultures and from every socio-economic class, enjoy. Human beings have been creating and listening to music for thousands of years, it is almost an essential part of our being.

Music has the power to evoke powerful emotions, it can lift us out of a bad mood and put a smile on our face, give us the energy and encouragement we need to get that workout done and more. We connect over music, we make music together, we meditate and zone out to music, and we even ‘trip out’ to music. What would our lives be like without music? Most likely Rather dull , and it seems as though  the ancients felt the same way.

Below is a video of a hymn that is said to have been written thousands of years ago, it may even be the oldest song in the world. This version is played using computerized tones, but if you can, imagine it being played on stringed instruments. Either way, it still has a joyous and almost comical feel to it, check it out.

Is this something you could jam to? Or at least is this something you could imagine your greatest ancestors rocking out to? Regardless of how you feel about the song, it’s pretty awesome that we actually have the equivalent to sheet music that was turned into a potential soundtrack for the ancient times. Essentially, this gives us the ability to glimpse into the past, an opportunity we may not have otherwise received. Sometimes what is put into words isn’t as powerful to our senses as actually hearing the same song that our ancestors may have listened to.

Here’s A Little History

In 1972, after 15 years of research, Professor of Assyriology from the University of California, Anne Kilner, was able to transcribe one of the oldest known pieces of music notation in the world. The music was inscribed on clay tablets that contained signs of the “Hurrian” language. These tablets had been excavated in the early 1950’s from the Syrian city of ancient Ugarit – now known as Ras Sharma. One of the tablets contained both words and music and has now come to be known as the oldest preserved music notation in the world.

Kilmer was able to transcribe this piece of music into a modern music notation, other people have also attempted to transcribe this music and the interpretations tend to differ a little bit. The tablets date back to around 1400 B.C. The music is a hymn to the moon God’s wife, Nikal. The tablets also happened to contain instructions for a singer as well as a harpist and how to properly tune the harp.
