An Impassioned Call for Transformational Social Evolution
Animal rights is the greatest social justice issue of this century.
Every year, more than 50 MILLION fur-bearing animals, including man’s best friend and feline companion, are brutally slaughtered without mercy in the name of greed, vanity and ignorance. To address the issues of the fur industry is to address the complexity of the human condition and our collective consciousness, which perceives fur as a commodity, a status symbol, rather than the skin of a once living, sentient being. The question is, “How do we define luxury in our society?”
The more we feed into ego consciousness and its false sense of power, the larger it will become. Ego feeds itself, causing diabolical destruction in its wake, attempting to fill a void that cannot be filled without the revelation of truth and what is really sought after.
My film will interpret from the “soul perspective” rather than graphic reportage, bridging the link to cruelty from a deeper level of the psyche to help heal the “condition of disconnect” in our society. It will explore the sociological and spiritual factors that contribute to the iniquitous and inhumane treatment of animals in our society, with its center on the fur trade as a paradigm of a more pervasive nemesis permeating our world.
What compels anyone with a beating heart to look into the eyes of a loving being and take away its breath of life? What is the condition that disconnects the heart [the organ that gives life] to the suffering and death caused by such inhumanity?
The perpetrators and the people who support the atrocity disconnect from its cruelty and perpetuate the condition. Unless we heal the source of inhumanity, the disease will prevail. Any lesser remedy will be akin to applying a bandage to a severed limb.
My film will delve into the core of the human condition, its effect on society, the animals, and the earth. When we can come to understand the impetus that propels the darkness, only then can we induce the light and illuminate consciousness. Through the revelation of spiritual truth, the film will awaken the collective conscience of humanity, and in turn, impact consumer demand that subsidizes animal cruelty. The truth remains that the nemesis will continue to thrive until we speak our voices – our purchasing power is our strength and a vital force in sustainable change on our planet.
The animals, the earth, the human species are ONE inseparable soul energy. When we disconnect from the suffering of sentient beings, we disconnect from our own suffering.
The animal kingdom is the conduit to the light, to our own evolution – that is the sacrifice they are making on planet earth. They are taking on the burden of inhumanity with unconditional love in their hearts, so that humanity can awaken.
The power of respect will change our world – respect for ourselves and respect for life.
