One reason heard from carnists from time to time for them not wanting to be vegan is the issue that veganism is a pointless venture as literally everything from tyres to mobile phones contain animal products in one form or anotherThe appeal to futility, seems to seem very rational in an individuals head and because of this it can make for a tricky point to come back on when faced with the excuse. Partly because, there is some truth to the argument.
It is quite easy to point out on the surface that because something is difficult does that mean that we shouldn’t try? Many a carnist would probably say ‘Yes’ anyway, as the seemingly unsurmountable obstacle, is just the perfect excuse not to try. You could argue that we are talking here about the difference between direct and indirect suffering, which I would say is a better point but still this misses an opportunity for you to drop some truth bombs. And who doesn’t want to do that from time to time.
The tact here is to employ the truth and the truth is always best kept simple. The truth of the matter is, that due to the very fact that literally billions of land animals are killed each year for the consumption of some humans, the by-products of this practise are in massive supply. When something is in massive supply the cost is cheap. This huge supply will drive a demand and the demand will in turn drive the supply.
As fewer and fewer animals are killed for human consumption the supply of by-products will reduce, as a result the price will increase. The retail market will reflect this as some companies may attempt to hike up the cost of their items to cover this. Some established companies may be able to raise prices in order to maintain their modus operandi as change will come at some cost. New innovative enterprises however will be able to opt for other materials in order to stay competitive.
Stumbling Towards A vegan World
These materials, from non-animal origin will be a selling point for a growing market which will create demand, which will drive supply, which will reduce cost. This is the circle that will be followed during each stumbling phase towards a vegan world. From finding alternatives to direct causes of harm, actually not eating them, to greyer areas covering the likes of the brand choice of a bottle of shampoo or preferred clothing company. Each time, the moral and ethical truth will eek out a solution, sometimes slowly and sometimes like a landslide. This will become more and more obvious, more and more in the public eye. More and more normal and more and more adopted by the masses.

With so many to choose from, the beauty of the universe has conspired for this underdog, as it becomes the only choice possible as a soundtrack to cover a topic of such magnitude that is The Purpose Of Life .
Some rose tints, coupled with the lack of having had chance to see the epic accompanying motion picture adventure in time, for quite some time. May cause some tug on your heart strings, when the real truth of the matter of the epic I allude to, is finally revealed.
Also, the difficulty in not saying ball bag is real, that goes for tea bagged too.
Who knew, really. I never did.
Enjoy the video.
Important lessons from the Capcom arcade classic Street Fighter. Possibly the greatest beat ’em up in history has a lesson for us all.
It doesn’t matter how heavy it gets piled on. Awareness and patience. Manifest space and stop the momentum.
The number 1 golden Rule!
Do not for any one minute of your time, do not take anything as though it were serious.
The universe is a game board laid out just for you to play on. But it is more fitting to say perhaps, that: you are playing the game of being the universe.
In order to manifest anything you first need to create the attraction to it. So if you focus on the scarcity of money, for example, you will attract the scarcity of money frequency of the universe towards yourself and we don’t want that. So remember often, that you live in abundance. This may sound crazy but even if you don’t believe it, pretend you live in complete abundance. I remember once trying to decide between two varieties of coffee in my cupboard. I suddenly started laughing at having that choice to make, of the abundance that I had taken for granted up until that point.
This way of thinking pulls you into the abundance frequency. You suddenly see that you have so much. You look around with abundance in your head and you are blown away by how much you have. When you do have less of something in particular, you still see abundance around you so there is no loss as such just a recognition of an area to focus abundance on. This focus is a background task performed by your mind. You do this consciously in as much as you send out a thought like paper planes imagining plenty of peanut butter spread across a piece of bread, when in reality you ran out 3 days ago. The thought is a dart of energy sent out into the ether. If you were to write down ‘Peanut Butter’ on a piece of paper, this sends more energy into the thought of abundance you have created. It’s also the start of a shopping list so, law of attraction, more items are added to this and you go shopping and bang you are abundant in peanut butter as you are always.
I have none becomes, I have loads. Just not at this moment.
This works with the money too. You gladly turn over your money for your supermarket goods because you have all these good things to eat or drink, in return for a few bits of paper. Happy days. You have the money for the goods right now. You will have it again, only now you are looking towards abundance, rather than scarcity.
Your body is manifested by your looking towards scarcity or abundance too. The propagation of a mindset which is considered ‘less than’ will attract the disposition of ‘less than’ which will affect anything physical. Your visor is tinted to the ‘less than’ view of the world. You will see it in yourself. You will feel it inside to the point whereby, a ‘less than’ mindset will find suspicious a person living with an abundance nature. They will not recognise abundance to the extent that they will look to strip that person’s character through some sort of flaw, even if this is in their own mind. This is in order to justify their ‘less than’ existence which is created from the mind rather that the higher self and one which they have attached with. It is going against their natural state and must be reinforced often in order to be maintained.
Look for ways to notice that you live in abundance and you will manifest good things from it. This attitude comes from a place of awareness and a recognition that you are responsible for you and you alone. The rest is the abundance of the universe showing itself to you anyway it can. Enjoy the abundance of it all ✌
