Many people today are aware of the”ruling elite” and readily speak out against the injustice that prevails in this world due to the greed and unequal distribution of resources, and the oppression when it comes to the corporate, financial, economic, government, media, and healthcare systems that exploit people and the environment. These ruling entities only do what is best for them without regard for the greater good, no matter how destructive their industries or policies are and how many people, animals, and ecosystems they hurt. Most people understand this and are vehemently opposed to how countries are run and how things operate here on Earth
At the same time, all of the people who are aware of this are unable to connect the dots of how the very foods they eat each day are fueling the very people, systems, and structures in place that they do not support.
It is time to connect the dots.
What is on your plate plays a HUGE role in how you are being exploited. One of the best explanations of this is provided by Will Tuttle, PhD. in his article: Whenever We Eat Animal Foods, We Are Being Exploited. This article provides a brilliant explanation of the exploitation taking place on all levels of our society and wellbeing — physical, environmental, cultural, psychological, and spiritual — when it comes to the food we are conditioned to eat. However, unlike many things in this world that we cannot change, this is one of the easiest things and within our power and control to change. If you don’t want to be exploited, or contribute to the exploitation of other people, or have our beautiful Earth and other living beings exploited, you need to start making different choices today. Every step in the right direction makes a big difference.
With every meal, we are being colonized psychologically in order to be malleable to the military-industrial-meat-medical-media complex. We eat products that are the embodiment of misery, fear, despair, insomnia, frustration, and chronic pain. The pharmaceutical industry’s most immense profits come from people buying drugs for precisely these conditions: despair, trauma, insomnia, depression, and chronic pain.

Dr. Tuttle regularly speaks out and gives lectures worldwide about this topic, which his best-selling book The World Peace Diet is based on. He is one of the most compassionate, enlightened, and inspirational people whom I have come across in my life. He is someone who gives me so much hope and upliftment about the potential of our human path towards love, respect, peace, and compassion for all beings. A path out of and beyond the exploitation, harm, and enslavement taking place on Earth for millennia. A path towards love-based wisdom, where in order to liberate ourselves, we must liberate other beings, as the pain and suffering we experience, is a reflection of the pain and suffering we cause others. Everything is connected within this system, and there is NOTHING we can do that will not have an impact on the system as a whole.
I first became acquainted with Dr. Tuttle’s work through his book, The World Peace Diet, which is by far one of the most beautiful, enlightened, and important books for us and our times. I’ve also had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Tuttle in the past about how our human culture is set up like a herding culture, which is reflected in all parts of our lives and in our societies, and in how we treat each other and other animals. You can view this video interview with Dr. Tuttle here.
Every few months, Dr. Tuttle releases one of his thought-provoking essays, which elegantly highlights the challenges before us and the solutions that are found in following the path of the heart and being the change we wish to see. To put into action solutions to the problems we face, I wish to share with you Dr. Tuttle’s essay, The 6 Paramitas, which are the qualities that we can cultivate every day to help us embody greater awareness and freedom.
May lovingkindness and compassion emanate from our every thought, word, and deed, and bless all sentient beings.
