The Hawai`i islands are an amazing place and we are committed to co-creating a Vegan Paradise, a true Garden of Eden, one step at a time. In the Hawaiian language, ALOHA stands for much more than just "hello" or "goodbye" or "love." Its deeper meaning is "the joyful (oha) sharing (alo) of life energy (ha) in the present (alo)."
The island of Hawai`i, the so called "Big Island", is utterly beautiful and we are aware that we are all here to support and kindly respect each other, humans, animals, nature. Welcome to Vegan Eden, let's co-create a new paradigm!
Welcome sacred activists, paradigm shifters, raisers of consciousness, lovers of all life, gentle compassionate peace makers and bringers of a new dawn. Let the Gentle Aloha Revolution begin - with the choices we make, daily. Let's make the vegan transformational magic happen! We are realizing by opening our hearts to deep compassion that our choices in life can create pain and suffering or deep and profound change to love and peace. We believe that becoming an ethical vegan is not short of an epiphany, realizing that we are all connected, part of a mystical wonderful web, and that we are co-creating continuously, with our thoughts and actions. We are blessed to live on this amazing planet. We understand that the time has come to stop exploitation, oppression of resources, nature and all sentient beings. We understand that if we cause harm and suffering to others, we cause it to ourselves - we are connected and want all sentient beings to experience what we wish for ourselves - safety, freedom, joy, peace, love, fairness and respect.
"This we know; all things are connected like the blood that unites us. We do not weave the web of life, we are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves."
~ Chief Seattle
'We are the ones we have been waiting for.' If not now, when? Our daily choices, what and where we buy and consume, what we choose to ignore, deny - we are so powerful. We can be part of tremendous suffering, exploitation, doing a lot of harm, yet we can change that with every bite we take into our mouths, being conscious what we allow to enter into our holy, sacred body temples; the energy we allow into our whole being, influencing our emotions, thoughts, health, spiritual clarity, connectedness. We can now choose to be the loving beings we are created to be ... we can be love, share love, express it, give, receive and consciously choose to partake in peaceful, sustainable, compassionate choices. The world, our Mother, Gaia, Earth, our beloved sentient fellow beings, Nature, creation - they count on us! The time is now, with every action we can make a huge impact, on ourselves and in our world - we are not separated. We are waking up, becoming aware, responsible, forgiving, opening our hearts and becoming who we truly are - divine beings, gracious, humane, ethical, conscious.
Let us choose a way of life which recognizes the right of all sentient beings to be treated with respect and justice. It's about doing the best we can to align our actions with these values. This means not consuming, wearing or using animals, nor taking part in activities of their exploitation. Let us choose to be and do the most responsible and morally conscious things each one of us can. Let us not only help animals, but also our own health and spirituality; as well as easing world hunger and creating hope for the future of our beautiful planet.
Aloha fellow Vegans and VIP's (Vegan in Progress), we are sending you much strength, love and blessings from the beautiful Big Island of Hawai`i.
We are facing the darkest time on earth in terms of animal exploitation and oppression and with that we are hurting our selves and our planet to a degree that is unfathomable. But the good news is, the pendulum MUST swing into the other direction, what else is there?
Thank you, each one of you for changing your own life and opening your heart more and more, even if it is partly extremely painful to see the big picture and truly wake up. But if we want to truly be human, truly be spiritual, there is no other way. How can we ask for compassion and peace if we don't fully live it, step by step, to the best of our abilities?
We see the tiny flicker getting stronger and stronger and soon it will be a strong flame, not only bringing much needed light to the utter darkness but also to warm and heal each other, all of us, all animals. Thank you for being part of the ripple that will become a stronger and stronger wave, cleaning away the corruption, greed and ignorance, old paradigms, religious and cultural beliefs so we can built a future based on justice and equality, care, compassion and love. It takes a lot to become a Sacred Activist, guts, courage, a willingness to change and to grow, and to stand out and brake away from the norm. Congratulations and Mahalo nui loa for being or becoming a part of the biggest sacred revolution - Veganism.
