New Moon Speaks #3 – Gemini Edition

I’d never think I’d have trouble to keep up with the changing moon phases. Today is another New Moon! (luckily I remembered) So, I looked up the sign it’s in, and laughed out … friggin’ Gemini! How ironic, it brings a smile on my face.

I am so busy doing a million of things, my mind is at thousands of places simultaneously and I can’t remember the last time I actually chilled out.

– Luna aka Moon, 2017

:’D

I forget to have breakfast regularly as I keep trying to catch up with time itself. I don’t know how many calls were made from my phone during the last week alone because there was so much business to be taken care of. Meanwhile I’ve lost track of the blogs I follow because lately I can only come online once a day for a few minutes, if I’m lucky.

I just realised I haven’t posted anything in almost a week! :O It’s midday in my place and I can’t believe, I’m lying on the floor near my cat to make this post, heck, I am online! The last 4 hours of my day were busy yet exciting once again! It’s not a bad thing. I like being busy – but I appreciate a breather. This time for real: “At some point today I’m gonna chill and do nothing.”

Maybe sometimes we need to remember to be like the Moon, we’re going through  phases. It’s all good.

We Are Incredibly Powerful

A belief, if based on a deception, is something we will desperately try to protect by all means – because that one belief makes up our perception of the world and we don’t like our worldview to change so easily when it’s us who don’t like change.

This is a reply post to “Freedom is my Virtue“. Since I started a conversation in their comment section but my reply this time would be too long for another comment.

“The place I live in is a bubble. […] I realize that living in a bubble does make us disconnected with reality.”

Yet you feel entitled to make such a serious post about the problems in this world while you admit to have no idea about reality. I am seriously intrigued and I want to give you another perspective. First of all, I do not make this post to attack you because I can see that you really, really want good for the world. But your idea is flawed because you want the things to stay as they are by making miniscule changes which in your mind would make the world somehow magically better (mostly for your conscience). I’m picking this up because you mentioned the impact the animal killing industry has on the people of this world and the environment.

You threw the word veganism somewhere in there but only to protect yourself from possible attacks against you.

” Not advocating veganism, here—but […]”

pexels-photo-112640Question: Since when do we have to fear to promote life, health and freedom? Not only the life of animals (if that’s worth nothing to you) but also the life of the people who die of the consequences of eating animals AND the survival of the actual planet we live on?

“[…] I don’t see why our government hasn’t yet jumped at the chance to carry out this world-saving masterplan.”

I can tell you why: supply and demand. Plus, the triple-profit you bring because you are what you eat. By eating death and disease you become death and disease and here’s where the government farms you. Pharmaceutics. Because people want to stay alive while making no lifestyle changes. Yet to my question as to why you’re ashamed to advocate veganism even though you clearly acknowledge its benefits on a large scale you say this:

“[…] yes, veganism guarantees greater health benefits and lessens environmental costs. But in the developed world, large-scale veganism would cause economic disruption […]”

pexels-photo-112855Another perspective: stopping wars from one day to another would cause large economic disruption. Supply and demand of weaponry, too many governments tied in, too many soldiers – who really are nothing but livestock to their governments are on the field (they send them to their deaths, you’re aware of that, right?) It is possible however, is to gradually stop causing unneccessary harm to living beings (including humans) as well as destroying the environment.

Lucky that this is the way veganism spreads opposed to your silly implication of total economic devastation in one sweep. Have you seen how many vegan food companies have been created lately, how many vegan restaurants open up daily? Vegan clothing, vegan everything, and this all grows gradually. We are not shutting down the animal killing industry today but we are shifting the supply and demand towards more beneficent, healthier options – steadily!

“There is nothing wrong with eating meat.”

So you’re saying there’s nothing wrong with clogging our arteries, literally and directly feeding certain types of cancer, living with hormonal imbalances caused by dairy (since we’re not baby cows, eh) I’m not even going to get into other common diseases most people suffer from at a certain age such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s etc – it’s all trackable to corpse and animal’s body fluids consumption.

Every actual nutritionist – a person who actually studied nutrition (such as the people from the American Dietetic Association) will recommend a vegan diet for health. They have proven that a vegan diet is appropriate for all stages of the life-cycle including during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence. There’s tons of proof available at your fingertips, only if you’re willing to look. And I mean actual biological proof that our bodies are not developed for meat consumption which is the main reason our arteries clog from consuming animal products. Truly omnivorous or even carnivorous beings don’t develop atherosclerosis (= clogged arteries) after flesh consumption.

You advocate bad health and violence with both of your arguments. And if you deny that that is what you imply then PLEASE, please go and watch Gary Yourofsky’s ‘Best Speech You Will Ever Hear’, watch the documentary ‘Earthlings’

e8cf34a8f90e3d4360b8842603fd9083If the only freedom you value is your own freedom to make up the reality you want to see, you truly are free to remain in your bubble. But where’s the point in making those kind of posts on your blog?

The world won’t change unless you do and your voice won’t be heard if all you ever do is talk.

As of now it seems I am the only person who has truly heard you and I offer you the chance to educate yourself on what’s really happening in the world. Ignorance is no longer an excuse, you have all the info at your fingertips – I have linked all the crucial studies and video material to you so you don’t even have to look them up on your own. If you’re not the hypocrite you make yourself look like then prove yourself. I’d love to actually talk to you after you look into those things.

Everyone Needs A Good Friend – Be One To Yourself

I don’t have any Zip today, in other words: I’m so damn tired lately. Then I realized how much I am at war with myself again – thoughts, ideas, dreams and fears all pull in different directions. Restless. Of course I’m not the only one like this. We all have our phases. A few weeks from now I probably won’t even remember feeling like this.

People waste too much time beating themselves up about their own imperfections. How do they hope to achieve greatness while thinking lowly of themselves? What if we all decided to be at peace with ourselves right here, right now? Can you imagine treating yourself as a friend? Does thinking of this put a smile on your face?

Let’s Do Nothing At All

What’s the difference between the dabbler and the achiever?

Well, the dabbler tries, fails and gives up. The achiever on the other hand is the polar opposite. And some people tend to take this too far. The old paradigm preaches you have to work your butt off and make sacrifices over sacrifices if you want to get somewhere. That might work for some but others can’t pull through with it. It’s hard to stay on track – not because they’re weak but because this way is not for them. There are generic approaches and tested solutions, sure. But do you really think there is only one perfect way to reach a goal?

While pressure can be a good motivator not every individual handles it equally.

Some might be at their peak performance while others give up. That’s why students with bad grades don’t usually get better. They give up. The school system is just one example where everyone is treated in the same way, regardless of natural predisposition, talent and individuality. We are people but we are not one and the same! We keep trying to fit into a flawed system believing to know the perfect way to the top and because some can’t keep up with it they stop trying.

Yes, hard work and perseverance are important when it comes to achieving goals. You get out what you put in. What if I told you it’s not what we do or don’t which determines success or failure of an endeavor – it’s how much of it. Push too hard to get somewhere and you end up stuck. It’s okay if you can’t work towards your goal for 20 hours a day – there’s a way for everyone.

I believe in consistency more than in anything else.

There is no shame in taking a break and doing nothing once in a while. In fact, it’s rather healthy to zone out regularly, and some tend to be more productive after taking a break. You can’t focus on anything with a cluttered mind. As long as we don’t chill too much, pick up the pace rather soon and continue working on our goal, giving our best – everything is still possible. Allow yourself a breather every now and then. Peace!
