HELP THE ANIMALS OF THIS WORLD AND RESTORE THE DIGNITY OF CREATION
In a world struggling to respect its Humans, it is no wonder that animals are suffering on a grand scale in all parts and all cultures of the world. Exploited and degraded, subject to human arbitrariness or mercy, the animals (and the way we treat them) are a telling reflection of how we perceive Creation and how we perceive ourselves. Rather than gratefully cherishing a Nature which allows us to be born, exist and grow, we carelessly discard more and more natural treasures, sacrificing the beauty of Creation to shortsighted materialistic ends. Animals are part of a Creation that we did not make, they can therefore - by definition - not be owned by us. They are "free" in the true sense of the word, part of the "wild" and yet our brothers and sisters, whom we are responsible for in a non-intrusive sense. No right on earth legitimizes us to keep them at our disposal, hunt them, kill them or eat them, all of which are unnecessary relics of prehistoric tribal patterns. Like our children, who are not in our possession, yet placed in our care, the animals of this world deserve to be looked after - once we have decided to intervene in the processes of Nature. Since we are (nowadays more than ever) in an unsettling position of strength over the natural dimension (which we are nonetheless part of), we are especially obliged to take care of the Nature's and animals' welfare - as a legacy of our own past as well as the only safeguard for our future in this world. Only if we come to terms with ourselves as complete Beings in a complete Universe, made of Spirit AND Matter, will we be able to embrace the "world" as a whole and take steps to promote its recovery in an entire way, including ourselves. The more we understand - and respect - the true nature of our Selves, the more respect will we gain for "other" life-forms.
Help to restore the Dignity of Creation by facing up to our historic responsibility in a true and full sense. Let us compensate for the pain we have inflicted on the animals of this world by standing up against animal cruelty or abuse in any shape or form today. Enough blood has been spilt, enough anguish heaped onto the surface of this Earth; it is time for us to return to our roots as spiritual entities in the womb of Creation, coming to understand the truth of our existence in an ENTIRE way. Let us dissolve the dark cloud spread around the globe during our irresponsible maltreatment of the most innocent products of Creation... This can only take place by way of redemption, through a deep and fundamental realization of what we are and what Creation represents in relation to ourselves. - "Know thyself". Stop torturing your own true Self by maltreating Creation - as we and Creation are One!
