We have created the World in which the reality of it is often hidden from the view. We are being fed one version of this reality, while consuming something totally different.
I think that one of the most important things in this Life is the quality of relationships we have with others.
How do we treat the other?
The other, who is weaker than us?
The other, who does not speak our language?
The other, who can't stand up for himself?
How we treat the others say's a lot about who we are.
Today I wanted to share a documentary that shows how do we treat some of those weaker ones among us... Non-human animals.
If I'm not mistaken the general idea is that we, the Humans, are intelligent and we have have the ability to self reflect. Unlike the other animals.
I ask you then to use your intelligence, I ask you to self reflect, look into your heart.
Have you ever tried to look into their eyes? To see who they are?
When I look into their eyes I see intelligence. I see emotions like joy or fear. I see a living being valuing their own live like I value mine. I see so much of myself in them.
We decide upon their live and death, yet have no right to do so. Not only we decide when they die, but we also decide how will they live their lives.
Isn't that slavery?
In those extremely horrible conditions, isn't that extreme cruelty?
We so much value our freedom... Shouldn't we then be able to respect the freedom of others?
