The Vegan Society: Why Be Vegan?

by The Vegan Society Why Go Vegan? For the animals Preventing the exploitation of animals is not the only reason for becoming vegan, but for many, it remains the key factor in their decision to go vegan and stay vegan. Having emotional attachments with animals may form part of that reason, while many believe that all sentient creatures have a right to life and freedom. Specifics aside, avoiding animal products is one of the most obvious ways you can take a stand against animal cruelty and animal exploitation everywhere. A more detailed overview on why being vegan demonstrates true compassion for animals can be found here .  For your health Well-planned vegan diets follow healthy eating guidelines and contain all the nutrients that our bodies need. Both the British Dietetic Association and the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognize that they are suitable for every age and stage of life. Some research has linked vegan diets with lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and

HEALTHY CHILDREN: Positive Family Dynamics

by Michael Corthell The traditional definition of a 'normal family' is a married mother and father and their biological children living together. It may also include the previous generation. (picture  The Waltons ). But what is 'family' in the Western world today, especially in America (or any part of the world)?  Do you think a new definition of family is starting to emerge in our society? Let's first look at why family is important. What purpose the family serves and what the dynamics are. ''The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life.''   —Richard Bach A family unit is foundational, that is, it is the base unit of society and even greater than that, it is what defines human civilization itself. Let's look allegorically at civilization. View it as a complete human being. The family unit is then a cell in that body. Family is then is the original and basic cell of so

Money: What is it good for?

No Worries: Living in Day-Tight Compartments

by Michael Corthell How much time and energy do you spend worrying about tomorrow? Do you worry about what will happen next week? Or, what will happen next year? You can plan your life out, but you still need to manage the present. ''Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.'' —Thomas Carlyle What worries you? The future? Today is a safe place.  It is a place to live securely to plan an even better tomorrow. How can you live in 'day-tight compartments' to turn the tide against worry and make yourself productive? Here are some of the basics: Love yourself. When we are worried about a big problem there are people who will support us and those who won't. Listen and feel the energy of those who support you. Reject the ones who don't.  Then give yourself a hug. Use positive affirmations and tell your subconscious mind all positives about yourself. Always keep your sense of h

Can You Really Buy Happiness??

by Michael Corthell [Short answer: Yes, by and through giving] Shining a light and talking about money management in any moral context such as creating wealth, controlling the weight of debt, and investment income can be like lighting a match next to a case of dynamite. Money is like any other tool— it can be used for good, to create something good, or used to destroy—the use depends on the mindset of the user. It is very easy to let a healthy interest in asset/money management become an unhealthy obsession with materialism. ''The love of money causes all kinds of evil. Some people have turned away from what we believe because they want to get more and more money. But they have caused themselves a lot of pain and sorrow.'' — 1 Timothy 6:10            Today we will explore the ways God wants us to view money as a means of exchange and investment, plus our attitude toward material goods. As with practically everything in life good management is all about b

Veganism is Not About “Food Ethics”

Veganism is Not About “Food Ethics”: Veganism is about Social Justice for All Animals, Including the Human Ones Veganism is not a social justice issue isolated from other social justice issues. Veganism shows the reality of how racism, sexism, classism, ableism, homophobia, speciesism, ecocide, etc are all connected. In other words the 'Golden Rule'. Join The Vegan Project
