If we act fast, then the world will not get worse. And then the Earth will be more protected, then maybe some damage will be recovered. I wish really that we have the planet, we continue to live, and the children grow up in a better environment. But it’s up to humanity to decide what they want and which direction they turn.

  8. 8. You The 100th Monkey story illustrates the concept of morphogenetic fields. In 1952, on the island of Koshima scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. One monkey found that by washing the sweet potatoes in the stream, can make the they tasted better. She taught this radical new trick to another in her group. Soon, little by little, the behavior spreaded. When a critical mass was reached with the 100th monkey, the difference: field of awareness suddenly spilled over to other and larger groups. The research suggests that when enough of us make the efforts to translate our positive Be ‘The 100th Monkey’ . ideas into action, the expanding energy field creates the evolutionary breakthrough that can change our cultural habit. “ When you are inspired by some great purpose, some expands in every direction and you extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds: find yourself in a new, great and Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness wonderful world.” Yoga Sutras by Patanjali The time to act is now!

Earth would we live in and what effect would this have on the world economy and Karma means “As you sow, so shall you reap.” If you kill, you will get killed, that is the meaning also how great the changes would be and how long would it take to see the effects of karma. If we hit someone, later we will get beaten.That is called karma. of these changes on our environment? ..... Meat is the cause of all wars and suffering in this world, as well as in your personal self.To Supreme Master Ching Hai: refrain from meat is to contribute peace to this planet. If we terminate the cause of killing, we will not reap the result of being killed or being wounded. If the world were to go 100% vegetarian right now, the ..... good effect of it would be seen within more or less 60 We respect all lives in the creative Plan of God. We can see by ourselves that all lives resist days. suffering and resist death.Therefore, when we kill or see animals being killed, they are suffering and they try to run away.That means God empowered them with the instinct of wanting life. In 8 weeks, we could see immediate effect. Of course, you also see immediately, it’s If we interfere and force their lives away, we interfere with God’s will. We should treat every almost immediately, but to see the whole big picture, you can realize it within 8 weeks. being in the same way as we ourselves like to be treated.Then our lives will be blessed with grace, with longevity and with wisdom. “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Then we will never 8 short weeks, yes. And what kind of Earth would we live in? It would be Eden again. blame God for any misfortune. Yes. And we will have sudden peace, and sudden realization of sameness between all ..... nations, between all humans and between humans and animals. Refraining oneself from killing also means not eating animal flesh because although we do not kill it ourselves, others have to kill so we can eat it.This is indirect killing. Whenever we eat Things would be more lushful, abundant.
