Honor Thy Heavenly Commandments – From The Essene Gospel of Peace, Part 2 of 2

“‘I tell you truly, even so did satan enter your bodies which are the habitation of God. And he took in his power all that he wished to steal: your breath, your blood, your bone, your flesh, your bowels, your eyes, and your ears. But by your fasting and your prayer, you have called back the Lord of your body and his angels. And now satan sees that the true Lord of your body returns, and that it is

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 11 of 17

00:34:34

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 11 of 17

The leap is the big jump that could bring humankind from one incorrect way of life to a better way of life, to the next, higher level in a short time. You see, one small step from everyone in the right direction can result in a big leap in our evolution as a human race. And that small step is very simple. It’s just: no killing. Abiding by the principle of “live and let live,” adhering to the universal law where we grant life to beget life.(Our next questioner is Mr. Bob Lebensold, producer and radio host of a program called "Environmentally Sound” on WVOX Radio in New York. In fact, Mr. Lebensold and Supreme Master Ching Hai know each other, because he’s recently interviewed Her on his program.) Right. (Hi, Master!) Hi, Bob! (It’s good to see You again. Good to be with You again.) How are you, Bob? (I’m great. I’m great. It’s very nice to be here. I’m glad Your people invited me. You have a great crew here, great staff.) Good audience. They are so good. (Yes, very good. And very pretty.) I feel such a loving and supportive atmosphere. OK, go ahead, Bob. (OK, my question is: I still don’t quite understand what You mean by "Leap to the Golden Era.” What does the term "leap" actually mean? What makes it happen? And what does the Golden Era mean to us here on Earth?) You don’t know “leap,” Bob? I am sure you know. You just ask so that you can have some interesting things to talk on your radio show, right? Yes. (Actually, I asked that because I would like to understand what this is about. It’s called Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era. And I would like to know just how You see it - what it means in Your terms - because You are the inspirational spark for this whole gathering.)All right, sir. Aye, aye, sir. I will comply. (Thank You.) Thank you for your question. Very thought provoking. I shall try my best to explain what is meant by “Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era.” The leap is the big jump that could bring humankind from one incorrect way of life to a better way of life, to the next, higher level in a short time. You see, one small step from everyone in the right direction can result in a big leap in our evolution as a human race. And that small step is very simple. It’s just: no killing. Abiding by the principle of “live and let live,” adhering to the universal law where we grant life to beget life. Because like attracts like; that, we all know. This, of course, includes adopting a vegan diet. Humans are naturally more generous and peaceful in their hearts; it’s just that we all have been misinformed, misunderstood for a long, long, long time. We thought meat was good for us, we thought dairy was good for us, we thought fish was good for us, we thought eggs were good for us... It’s all wrong. It’s all the opposite. It all has been proven that these things that we have been told that are good for us – like meat, fish, dairy, eggs, whatever animal products “are good for us” – is all wrong. It’s the opposite of what is good. It has been bringing us suffering, sickness and tremendous loss of finances from tax payers, for curing disease and related business. So, we have been misled, for a long, long time. Now, we have to do research. We have to listen to the wise doctors and scientists. We have to see the result of their research: that meat and animal products are really, really poisonous for us. We have to stop now, especially stop for our children’s sake. We can’t keep poisoning our children anymore; they are helpless. The poor children, they rely on us, they think we know better, but it’s not our fault either. We just need to turn around. Why it’s not our fault? Because we have also been taught that way. And our grandparents, our great-grandparents have also been taught that way. And for being too busy, too busy for daily survival, working, we have no time to do research, so we did not know that these things are truly poisonous to us. And above all, it is eating up our planet. It’s not just killing people, it’s not just killing animals, it’s killing our planet. And we have to stop it in order to save our world. We just turn around, that’s it. Just walk the opposite way, the right way without causing any more suffering; no taking more lives, but loving and protecting all creatures. That’s the leap that all humanity needs. Thank you. We will feel completely different after we make this leap. We will feel evolved to the higher level of consciousness automatically. Just imagine we are big, strong, intelligent and able. We are able to plant all kinds of stuff to eat, and we should not use our might, our intelligence, our capability, to harass, to molest, to torture, to cause suffering and to murder those little, helpless, innocent animals who have never done us any harm. According to the law, they are innocent. And if we kill innocent beings, we are the ones who should be punished. I am sorry if I offend you, but this is the truth. And I am sure you understand it. Thank you. Through our leap in this evolution, we can leave this existence of want and fear, toward a true life of peace and love and enlightenment – from the vicious cycle of killing, suffering, and violence to a circle of loving kindness, protection, and happiness. Can we imagine a world where the meek ones never have to fear the strong? Where there is no more violence, no fighting among neighbors, near or far, and no child has to die of hunger, thirst or illness every few seconds, every day, while their mother watches, completely helpless with her heart drowning in sorrow. As I am speaking, many children are dying somewhere. Every few seconds, a child dies of hunger. We cannot keep doing this. We cannot wait longer. We have to save these lives – not just the lives of animals, but the lives of our children, even if it's not our children… other people’s children. Meat causes so much suffering because it causes hunger and war. We use up all our cereals, grain, soy and good resources, and land and water to support the meat industry, and therefore the world is short of food and water. So, in order to save lives we have to stop the meat industry. The way we are living right now is a deeply degraded condition of what we really are. We are the children of God, which is all loving and kindness. We are the heirs of Heaven. We’ve just forgotten. Can you imagine a God who comes here to Earth and kills everything in sight to eat? Sorry, if there is a God like that, I don’t want to be Hiers child. Would you like to be the children of that kind of God? Tell me yes or no? (No!) OK, no. Thank you. Thank you. You are so kind. Now, if God is all merciful, all compassion, and all loving, and we are the children of God, then don’t you think we should walk like God’s children on Earth? We have to walk the way of love and compassion. We have to represent our Father if we want to glorify Hiers name. We always pray every day, “Hallowed be thy name… in Heaven as well as on Earth,” but what do we do to hallow Hiers name? We have to represent Hirm. We always pray to God because we believe God is merciful, protective, compassionate and loving. And we are the children of God, we must represent these qualities. We are those qualities: we are loving and kindness. We have just been misled, misinformed, and we have forgotten. So please just remember. These qualities are deep inside us, so we know there must be something better than what we see around us. We do have examples through our history of human beings whose lives were so uplifting that they continue to shine until today – not only spiritual teachers, but philosophers like Plato, statesmen like Socrates, the mathematician Pythagoras, and the poet Ralph Waldo Emerson of America. They were all vegetarian (vegan). Are you surprised? No, you are not. You don’t look surprised to me. So you knew all that. All the great people, they are vegetarian or vegan. So, if we study them carefully, we will see that at the basic core of the civilized life they taught is the vegan diet. The vegan diet is one of the first single greatest acts of compassion, of not harming another life, and not damaging the environment even. If we compare a meat-based diet to a vegan diet, it takes around 14 times as much water, 6 times as much grain, 10 times as much energy, and over 20 times as much land, while often destroying precious rainforest. Being vegan is good business in terms of virtuous merit, as well as preserving the only home we have. The less damage and harm we inflict upon the planet and her inhabitants, the less we have to pay. We are paying dearly now, and we will pay much dearer if we don’t stop the meat/animal industry. The more we exert our loving kindness and protection towards all beings, the greater we will be in the world, the greater will be the feeling in our hearts as well as in the Kingdom of Heaven. That’s why great Masters and other illuminated souls of the past all taught us, one and the same, that if we don’t wish to be harmed, we must not impose harm on others. You look in all religions, all say the same… this sentence, this same meaning. Whatever is good for us, we should do for others; that whatever we sow, we will reap, without fail. That’s why they did teach us not to eat animals and to be vegan. If we make this leap, a very small change in the diet. Instead of meat, instead of animal protein, we choose vegetable protein, which is first class anyway. Animal protein is second class, why? Because they have eaten the first class vegetable and fruit and then we eat their flesh. That is second class. We are humans, why do we choose the second class stuff? It doesn’t befit us. So we have to make this leap. Thank you. My God! You are so kind. We have to make this leap, ladies and gentlemen, because if we do, the Golden Era will be here in no time heralding a time of peaceful living, without the perpetual loss of lives – early deaths in the tens of billions each year! My God! Tortured and murdered for our fleeting pleasure, which we could always replace. Meat is replaceable. There are so many wonders of earthly life that we have yet to experience and discover! So much scientific knowledge to be revealed and explored, and invented, and incredible technologies to be discovered and developed. There are better social systems. These are things mostly beyond our present level of logic or even our imagination; but, they can only be achieved through tapping into our wisdom and creative power. In order to open this wisdom, we must first remove the harmful, obstructive substances that block and suppress it, like meat, dairy, fish, poultry and all animal products. These things obstruct our intelligence, delay our progress, not just spiritually, morally, but technologically as well. Finally, besides our personal reasons of wanting to welcome a Golden Era, we also have the planet to consider, which as I’m sure you know, we are at risk of losing anytime now. So, this leap in consciousness is also to save our planet and all other beings that deserve a harmonious world to live in. If everyone makes this leap or shift, we can save our planet. I promise, with all the honor that I have, and God be witness. At the same time, we elevate ourselves, which has been long, long overdue. Thank you, Bob, for making me talk so much! Lucky the Washington people are very polite. They are very polite, educated people. Thanks so much. (Thank You for explaining the truth so clearly and for encouraging us to do the right thing. Our next questioner became a vegan a few years ago, when he realized that it was a more compassionate and noble way of living. Mr. Alex Arndt, songwriter, musician, and lead singer of the band Sonic Paradigm now promotes the vegan diet through his songs.) (Hallo, everyone.) Hallo. Wow. (Hi, Supreme Master Ching Hai. Hallo.) Hi, Alex. (Hallo. I just wanted to say thank You for being my fan, I am also a big fan of Yours, and I am so happy to ask You this question.) Please. (My question is: As a musician, it seems to me that one of the most powerful things is art, in our world, and it connects us as human souls. Why do You think this is? Does the beauty of art remind us of another more noble way of life? Thank You.) Yes, sure. Sure, Alex, sure. It’s so nice to see you, a smart, handsome, compassionate musician. Voice of the voiceless, torchbearer for many people. I’m one of your fans as well. I wish you all the best as you continue to write and sing from your heart. Your songs are very touching and ringing with heartfelt truth and feeling, like “There are No Slaughterhouses in the Spiritual World.” So why would we want any on Earth, right? That’s it. Your songs are powerful, very powerful, and art is powerful. You know that. Art can speak to us deep inside without any explanation and language. It just goes straight to our heart. It can elevate a person’s mood, dissolving the barriers of prejudice or preconceived notions, and going beyond the need for human language, for a perfect expression. And you know, Alex, artists like you are considered half-saints already. You are a vegan artist, so perhaps you are more than 50 percent. Congratulations. Aren’t they nice? I could talk forever in this kind of atmosphere. The artists are able to emulate the heavenly melodies and the beauties from above and try to express them on Earth as much as they can through their physical instruments and vocals. Because in Heaven, everything is so glorious and beyond imagination – full of divine Light and Celestial sounds of Music. That is what we call the higher vibrations of the universe, which we can hear anytime. Like now, I’m speaking to you, I don’t have any instrument and nobody is playing any harp around here, but I can hear the Heavenly Music at the same time. The inside melody, this music, is the real music, is the real inspiration behind all the greatest compositions on this planet. I know it because I myself experienced it. In ancient times, the spiritual practitioners who were connected to Heaven, at times tried to replicate the mesmerizing, wonderful music of the celestial abode by creating instruments. So, many of the instruments we have – like the harp, the piano, the violin, the flute, the Scottish bagpipes, etc. – they all correlate with the sounds of real Heavenly realms, except the real ones are much more incredibly uplifting, for this matter. I know it because I can compare, because I hear the inner (Heavenly) Music and I can hear your outside music or other artist’s music, so I can compare. Though the paints and the gold and precious gems can never be as brilliant as the ones in God’s Kingdom, they also still help to remind people of their glorious, divine nature, or awaken to something beyond the ordinary world. So, all artists help to awaken the noble qualities within humans. So, you are right to say that the beauty of art does remind us of our real Home. It’s not just the aesthetic pleasure, but it resonates with our origin. The beauties we adore so much, are us. The nobility, love, and compassion, are us. Therefore, we are grateful to the artists, such as yourself, who have enriched our lives through their beautiful contributions. Let’s continue working together until we create our own spiritual world paradise, Alex. Thank you. Heaven bless you. Thank You. Continue with your music. (And we thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for Your words are actually artistic to our souls. They’re music. It’s heavenly and we are moved with the compassion and passion of what Your wisdom is all about. So thank You once again.) “(From what I hear, particularly from Supreme Master Ching Hai, is that the meat industry is actually more responsible for global warming and greenhouse gases through the methane that the animals naturally emit and we do, that is the most, the greatest cause of global warming. It does make me think about it, and perhaps that has something to do with cutting back on red meat. Also, some of the people I speak to and live with on a day-to-day basis, also they're getting the messages. The cruelty, they see the images of animals being mistreated.)” “(Alex, what are your impressions of the conference that you saw today? What are you taking away from it?)(We were just talking about how amazing it is; the kind of care that went into this conference; from all the people behind the scenes; thank you to you, yourself; thank you to everyone that’s putting this together. All the care that just, that people put into just taking care of me as a questionnaire. And I can’t imagine all the stuff that went behind this, to really make it possible.)”“(My impression of it at this point, I have a much better understanding of who Supreme Master Ching Hai is, because I’ve known Her, I’ve seen Her, but just getting to really look into Her eyes today and see Her compassion and Her emotion was really special for me. Just a spectacular conference! I loved it! Thank you. We’ve written a couple of songs about compassion for animals. As people might know about around here but we think that there could probably be… or at least I think, that there could probably be 10 more songs that deal with different sides of it, different ways to tell people. I mean one of our songs kind of states how I just went into being conscious about not creating any more pain and it really literally happened not overnight but like almost instantaneously after watching a video of cruelty towards animals, I mean it was just boom you know, so in my case I went vegan overnight or on the same day. And so I think that’s totally possible, you know and it wasn’t hard, it was like the easiest thing to do, I was so happy about it. So I mean it can go that way, but if it doesn’t affect you in that way, where you just go right away and you just realize it, then maybe you know you can step for like having vegan Mondays or something.)”“(We actually started a song we kind of, we wrote a song about, a little bit about having to do with this, called ‘Wake us up,’ but I heard Her referring to, Supreme Master referring to that, and I thought we haven’t done anything with the song yet, recorded it, and I think we’re… I would like to go back and revisit it after today and fix it up a little then, it’s cool we need to wake up.)” “(So do you have a hope that this message will carry across the world and we will become vegan in time?) (I think that, I know that we will, I know that we will. And I think that’s what everybody has to keep in mind is that if you don’t believe it, it’s not going to happen. So you have to believe it. So that’s why we all believe that it actually is happening right now and this paradigm shift, I mean in the long scheme of things it’s already happened, it’s only like, it’s a matter of time before this planet change, we’re in desperate need for a change right now. Right? And I thank you guys and everybody that’s volunteering to make this possible, this is so good, thank you for the interview and making this all possible.)”“(Hallo, my name is Alex Arndt, I’m a singer from the Sonic Paradigm. Be veg! Go green! 2 Save the planet… today!)”

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 15 of 17

There are systems like that that exist without money, based on what I have seen in more highly developed societies in the universe, such as on other planets. You see, our planet is not ready yet for this system. It’s not the system, this or that. It’s the people, the concept of life, the concept of a society has to change first, the people’s concept. Once they make a switch to change into a more sociable, more neighborly, more global family-like, then that kind of exchanging system will automatically come to realization. (Next, we have Mr. Tom Vennum, a clinical bodyworker and a vegan.) (It’s so nice to see You, Supreme Master Ching Hai. This is quite an honor. I’m quite intrigued by the idea of this “Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era” and the idea of a Golden Era being here on planet Earth. I have a question about it. It seems as time has gone on, we’ve evolved to a system where we’ve had to work to provide for our basic survival needs.) Right. (How will this system change as we grow into the new era? Will it be more service-based, where neighbors simply provide for one another out of the kindness of their hearts? Thank You.) That would be great. That would be great, sir. Yes, that’d be great. That would be our dream world. It might happen still. Yes. It’s nice to meet you, sir. You are correct. There are systems like that that exist without money, based on what I have seen in more highly developed societies in the universe, such as on other planets. You see, our planet is not ready yet for this system. It’s not the system, this or that. It’s the people, the concept of life, the concept of a society has to change first, the people’s concept. Once they make a switch to change into a more sociable, more neighborly, more global family-like, then that kind of exchanging system will automatically come to realization. I have seen on other planets: only the people who are more evolved, or the concept has evolved in that direction, more like a community, global community direction, more spiritually, then they would use that exchange system with no money that you mentioned. These planets, they are inhabited by beings similar to us, but they’re more beautiful. I’m sorry. Maybe because they are more relaxed. And they are vegan– relaxed, happy, and light conscience. So many of these civilizations are much more advanced than we are, even spiritually, even technologically, mainly because they have developed morally and spiritually to a higher level than ours. As a result, they do everything in a more effective and peaceful way. In our world, we have to earn a living because of the need for physical survival, so we even feel bored at work in many cases. Many people, they work but they don’t love their job, they are not interested, because they feel forced to do the job just to earn the money. Often because of that we are forced into some job that we don’t even like or not interested in or not even capable to do. So, often our precious talents and gifts, natural gifts, time and freedom, are all lost in the office or in the factory, or at best, put on hold for many, many decades until we’re retired. And then we’re tired to even realize our dream anymore. Or, we are too sick from the whole life long of service and being poisoned by being misled into eating meat, cigarettes, or whatever. So when we retire, we’re really tired, so all our talents, ability, energy, are lost – just for maybe a few dollars an hour. And we are the children of God. And we have talent. Many people who have talent, ability, bury their lives into some other mundane, laborious job until they die, unfulfilled. You know that. Yes. It’s a pity. However, in these more developed places in the universe, everyone is secure and has enough, just like your dream world that you have mentioned. They work, but are able to choose which talents and abilities to share and contribute to the society. Because they do that so they do their best, because they do what they love to; they have choices, see? Instead of working for money, they produce for the honor and pleasure of contributing. They bring the fruits of their labor, or their talents, like their harvests or their services, to a place where they can exchange them with one another for the goods they need. This could be a goal that our world could look forward to. These people in those societies, they can enjoy a lot of time for their leisure, and developing their hobbies and their talents, etc., etc., and discover their dormant capabilities as well. So, therefore, in such a society, there are many wonderful inventions have been born. And many wonderful things happen because people are relaxed and do what they do best. No one ever worries about lacking physical necessities, so their lives are full of freedom and happiness. Doesn’t that sound wonderful, sir? (Yes.) Sound wonderful to anybody? Yes. At least we can dream on, dream on. Because American people say: “You’ve got to have a dream. If you don’t have a dream, how would you have a dream come true?” Right?So, right now we dream that our planet first be saved by a vegan diet, and then we can dream of this dream world in which everyone exercises their talents and their love for their work and creativity, instead of working hard, back broken just for money. Now, wouldn’t it be nice to have this kind of free and happy society? (Yeah.) Well, if I might add, all such societies are also vegan, I told you. Their concept of life is very clear – very clear, very selfless, unconditional, very intelligent. I have not seen a single civilization so advanced and happy, joyful, that is not a vegan society. According to precedent, non-violence is, in fact, vegan, a requirement for advancing to the next levels of civilization. In those societies they only take what they need, and their needs are so few. Because once we change our concept, we live a freer life. Our souls are less burdened, our hearts are more open, our minds are so happy. We need very little in life to feel contented because we’re not burdened by the guilt of murdering innocent animals. We are not burdened by the obligation to earn a living, to pay tax, to pay electricity, to pay whatever – all the basic necessities – that should be free for everyone. Now, in those societies, they don’t have this burden, so they’re free to develop, and they develop so much. And so they’re happy. When you’re happy you don’t need much. You really don’t need much, because you’re spiritually also fed, emotionally also satisfied. And as you notice yourself, when we’re happy emotionally, or physically or mentally, we hardly need anything. Remember when you fall in love, you hold hands all day; you don’t even want to go to eat anything... lie in bed all day talking nonsense together, and you’re not hungry. You’re happy, you feel you don’t need anything. You feel you just need that place, that little room, that’s enough. Now, the taking of another being’s precious life, including the life of an animal, no matter how small, certainly never happens in an intelligent and civilized society, as I have seen it. Members of such a true civilization would never oppress, torture, or murder the weak, defenseless and innocent animals that have never done anything wrong to them; but, on the contrary, treat all life with the utmost respect and protection, like they would their own life. Furthermore, they don’t take up their planet’s resources needlessly to try to breed and raise animals for the pleasure of their fleeting enjoyment of the palate. They are frugal and sensible. Perhaps, we can someday join the ranks of the highly developed planets. Maybe we can even learn from them and exchange goods with them. There is much we could look forward to on our own planet and beyond. But first we have to save it, by being vegan – that’s the only solution right now. We don’t have time for anything else. Thank you, Mr. Good-Heart for being with us, and for doing your part. God bless you. (We are so grateful for Your fascinating vision and elevating wisdom, Supreme Master Ching Hai.)(Next we have a question from Mr. Steve Ma, the founder, president and GEO of the organization Live Green, and he also is a devoted vegan. The letters "GEO" stand for "Green Executive Officer.") Yes? GEO, not CEO? Wonderful. (Hallo, Supreme Master.) Hallo, GEO! Good invention! That’s a new word. (One of the things that we do as an organization is encourage people to go to green businesses and support the business owners who are doing it right. So, first I’d like to invite You to come to DC and we will go out a nice vegan meal together at one of the restaurants.) It’d be my honor. God willing. Thank you. (One of the things we really like to do is point out people who are doing it right, people who are succeeding in helping us live a more sustainable way. And thankfully, there are many recent examples of people, communities, coming together to live a more sustainable way. And for instance, right here in DC, Mrs. Michelle Obama has created an organic community garden, a vegetable garden.) Right! (And school children from nearby schools come by to help maintain that garden.) Yes, I’ve heard about that. (So, I want to know from You specific examples of things that we can do together as communities to really bring about a sustainable planet?) Right! Good question! Good question! Yes, bravo to America’s First Lady Michelle Obama. She is my First Lady. Wonderful. That is a true First Lady. She has taken the lead by example. You know, in our old system of kings and queens in China and Âu Lạc (Vietnam), we call the queen, “Mother of the Nation.” So Mrs. Michelle Obama is worthy to be called that. She has taken the lead by example. She even said that her family feels more energetic and healthier from eating the organic vegetables, local-grown. Imagine if every neighborhood in the United States had an organic veggie garden like that, for sharing fresh, healthy, vegetables with everyone. There are reports about organic vegetable farming that it is quite profitable, and the demand for organic vegan foods now is growing faster and faster around the world. So one thing we can do is to encourage more organic vegan farmers markets. Farmers markets are more and more popular in the United States now because it’s fresh, it’s quality, and it’s local, so there is less transportation pollution. But, interestingly, studies show that eating locally is not as good as eating vegan. For example, scientists at Carnegie Mellon University calculated that a vegan diet reduced over seven times the emissions compared to a 100% local meat diet. So, see? Eating vegan is better than eating local even, “loco” meat. In Spanish, “loco” means crazy – we don’t eat “loco” meat. Now, in another study, Foodwatch in Germany found that switching from a meat diet to an organic meat diet saved only 8% of emissions, but switching to a non-organic vegan diet, even non-organic vegan diet, reduced 86% of emissions. So, we save the planet by being vegan. Even non-organic! So, actually, organic is good, local is wonderful, but the first step is at least being vegan, organic or not. Organic, of course, is the best, because when we plant all the tillable acres on our planet organically, then the CO2, the carbon dioxide, which exists already in our atmosphere will be absorbed 40%. And the other 60%, we take care of by being vegan. Then we’re happy. Our planet will definitely survive. Now, the vegan lifestyle is the greenest lifestyle. Right or not? Yes! Thank you. Thank you, good children of God. Because even organic meat is actually not eco-friendly at all; it requires even more land, and more energy than the non-organic meat in meat farming. Can you believe that? So, it doesn't even help to try to raise animals organically. The so-called “sustainable,” “free-range,” organic poultry, for example, needs 20% more energy and has a 20% higher, bigger impact on global warming than non-organic poultry farms. Think about that. So, we have been misled all the time. This is a terrible thing about this negative power in this world. It makes us believe things that are not good for us at all. From now on, we have to try to do research and believe only what’s good for us. And we have to research until we really find that this news, this information, is truly reliable and believable by example, by proof. Otherwise, just don’t listen to anything anybody else says if they don’t prove it. Similarly, organic eggs were found to have a 14% higher carbon footprint than non-organic eggs. So there we are. And even though you don’t use fertilizers, the benefit could be cancelled out because of the increased land use. Therefore, only the vegan lifestyle is truly sustainable. Now, once we become vegan and urge others to join through grassroots seminars, flyer distribution, letters, emails, whatever, we could practice sustainability in other ways. As I have suggested before, we could plant organic vegetables and trees. Better still are those fruit trees and nut trees, and those vegetables or legumes like beans and stuff that need little water. That, we can do research to know which ones need less water, because right now we’re short of water as well. We’re short of everything right now. So we should be frugal not to waste precious energy and water, use our own shopping bags even. We encourage sustainable energy development. And we can write or talk to the government and the media, and the farmers even, because we really do need all the help from the government, from the media, to accelerate the trend. Another good way to quicken our movement to a sustainable planet is to generate more positive energy: do good deeds and be loving and kind. Expand our loving quality. This is what will create a shield, invincible, to protect us and the planet. Finally, we can pray that divine power manifests on Earth to awaken leaders, the media, the influential people, and all the world citizens to take the right steps to preserve our planet, and fast – fast before it’s too late. Because at this point, we do need Heaven’s intervention to save our planet. Not to pray to them to protect us; just to pray so that they awaken everybody to the solution of the vegan diet, because that is the solution that will save our planet. If we can do these things, starting with being veg, we would realize not just a sustainable planet, but a real paradise of peace in our lifetime. Thank you and Heaven bless you for being a vegan, a handsome vegan. (Thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for sharing Your most wonderful and insightful answers to these thought- questions.) Thank you. “(What was your impression of Supreme Master Ching Hai?)(It was the first time I heard Her speak. I felt She is very insightful and just really did a great job of showing the compassion behind what we’re trying to do. And while we laid out the science, She highlighted the compassionate piece of why we should really be interested in that, and then tied it into science and health and the impact on the environment. So I thought She did an excellent job with that.)” “(Live Green’s mission is to make it easier and more affordable for people to be green. We're trying to break the myth that it's difficult and expensive to be green. We want to give people really simple, easy ways to be green that are very impactful. Obviously, a vegan diet is one of the easiest things, most impactful things that you can do. And it was wonderful to hear at this conference, both the connection to all the environmental problems that livestock have but also a connection to the solutions, the very easy solutions that people can take. Whether it be to fully be vegan or implement a vegetarian lifestyle, this is just one more example of a simple, really impactful thing that people can do to be green.)” “(Great. Do you think that conferences such as these are beneficial and if so, why?) (Absolutely, it's beneficial. People need to know the truth, and unfortunately there's a lot of misinformation out there. There’re a lot of folks that are casting doubt because they want to really stand in the way of progress, and unfortunately a lot of people profit off of the current system. But for us to really create a sustainable planet, something that we can pass on to our future generations in a pristine state, we really need to relook at how we act, how we behave, what we buy, and definitely what we eat. This conference, I thought did a wonderful job of putting the science out, putting some of the moral arguments out, and really helping people understand that food choices are one of the most impactful things that we can do to make the planet better.)” “(And given the fact that you were able actually to speak with Supreme Master Ching Hai today via conference, what was that experience like for you?)” (It was wonderful. She's clearly such a positive spirit. She obviously cares so deeply about humanity, about this planet. Her message is so important and to be a part of that message and contribute in some small way, is really an honor.)”

God bless you all and God bless great America. Thank you so much. Please tell me we can be veg, go green, do good deeds, and save the planet. Say yes. (Yes!) So be it. Bless you. We will save the planet with your help.(We are delighted to present a trio of musicians from Washington, D.C.) That’s good. (The St. Charles String was founded in 2004 as an opportunity to promote chamber music through educational outreach programs and concerts. These musicians are renowned for their technique and exciting repertoire. In addition to playing classical chamber music, the St. Charles String are also known for their fun and uplifting arrangements of modern rock tunes – a true celebration of youth, inspiration, and endless possibilities.) (Please welcome the St. Charles String, playing “Sunrise Quartet, Allegro con Spirito.”) Excellent, excellent! Thank you so much! Could you please give them some gifts for me, like books and a little red envelope? (Yes, Master. And we wanted to thank them for sharing their elevating music with our world audience.) Thank you. (Which raises the question, what will music be like in the Golden Era? Our final song is from Nominjin, a singer-songwriter from Mongolia whose voice is a joy to behold.) Yes. (This evening, she will be singing “From a Distance.” While she performs, we will watch a video that celebrates the dawn of the Golden Era here on Earth. Please give a warm welcome to Nominjin.) (From a distance the world is blue and green. And the snow capped mountains white. From a distance the ocean meets the stream. And the eagle takes to flight. From a distance there is harmony. And it echoes through the land. It’s the voice of hope It’s the voice of peace. It’s the voice of every man. From a distance we all have enough And no one is in need. And there are no guns, no bombs and no disease. And no hungry mouths to feed From a distance we are instruments marching in a common band. Playing songs of hope. Playing songs of peace. They’re the songs of every man God is watching us. From a distance you look like my friend Even though we are at war. From a distance I just cannot comprehend. What all this fighting’s for. From a distance there is harmony. And it echoes through the land. It’s the hope of hopes. It’s the love of loves It’s the hearts of every man. And it’s the hope of hopes. It’s the love of loves. It’s the song of every man. God is watching us from a distance God is watching us from a distance.) Bravo, bravo! Beautiful, beautiful! Beautiful lyrics as well. (Thank you, Nominjin, for that stunning performance, and the video was very inspiring. We are looking forward to that happy day!) (Supreme Master Ching Hai, we have a special presentation for You from Mr.Lý Kiến Trúc, President of the Vietnamese American Media and Artists Association, Orange County, California. One of our Association members is here to accept this award on Your behalf.) Let me fly over in a minute! (Please give a warm welcome to Mr. Lý Kiến Trúc.) Well, thank you, thank you. Thank you. (The inscription reads: “On behalf of all the people inhabiting this green world, I would like to thank you, the organizing committee and Supreme Master Ching Hai, for all Your compassionate work. Lý Kiến Trúc.”) Thank you. (Lý Kiến Trúc is a journalist and President of the Vietnamese American Media and Artists Association, Orange County, California.) Thank you. (Good evening, Supreme Master Ching Hai.) Good evening. (Good evening, everyone. I am Aulacese (Vietnamese). I am a journalist. The Aulacese (Vietnamese) community is in Orange County, Southern California. I am very happy and honored to be here and I thank You very much, Supreme Master Ching Hai.) I thank you. Thank you very much, Mr. Lý Kiến Trúc. I wish your family good health. (Many thanks for your thoughtfulness, Mr. Lý Kiến Trúc. Your work as a dedicated journalist is appreciated.) Yes. I send my love and regards to all the journalists at home there, and my best wishes and regards. I said, “I send my love and regards to all the journalists at home there, and my best wishes and regards.” And thanks for the award, thank you. God bless you. In case you didn’t know, he also opened a couple of vegetarian restaurant. Please visit. (Supreme Master Ching Hai, we are very grateful for You sharing Your time and Your wisdom with us this afternoon. Before leaving us, would You like to share a final message?) I thought everybody should go and have a vegan gourmet dinner. Are you hungry? (Yes!) OK. I just want to say thank you again. God bless you all and God bless great America. Thank you so much. Please tell me we can be veg, go green, do good deeds, and save the planet. Say yes. (Yes!) So be it. Bless you. We will save the planet with your help. Good night, I love you all. God bless you. God bless us. God protect the planet. See you sometime. So long, and much love, love – love from my heart. (We wish You all the very best, Supreme Master.) I wish you all the best also, my love. Bye-bye, love. (We would like to also thank our two talented American Sign Language interpreters Miss Bevin McNamara and Miss Andrea K. Smith. Their diligent work has helped the hearing impaired enjoy this very special conference.) (And our special thanks to Supreme Master Television for sharing this conference with viewers around the world. Inspired by Supreme Master Ching Hai, Supreme Master Television broadcasts positive and constructive programs.) (Ladies and gentlemen, this concludes our “Humanity's Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference.” Wishing all of you ever greater happiness, health, and a long, joyous future! May Heaven be with you always! Bye-bye!) “(I hear the message clearly, in regards to the impact of animal husbandry, of animal farming on the environment. And I believe that most who are here are already converts to that idea, so it certainly was very useful for me to hear that message myself. I am very impressed with the work that She (Supreme Master Ching Hai) is doing because ultimately it’s about the future, and the future is our children and they are at risk, at significant risk. They’re at risk by virtue of the diets that are imposed on them. And so I think it’s very important that all this kind of information be made available to as many people as possible.)” “(I was very impressed. She’s (Supreme Master Ching Hai) very non-pretentious, down-to-earth, humble, funny. It was wonderful. It’s wonderful to see the conscious, different sort of cultural groups being involved in this in a different way and it felt spiritual.)” “(Be veg! Go green! 2 Save the planet!)”

Illicit drug usage remains a major problem in our society. Factors contributing to drug use are varied, but the effect is the same. Drugs not only harm the person using them, they also affect that person’s husband or wife, children, other family, and friends. To address this global problem, the United Nations General Assembly has declared June 26 as International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 13 of 17

00:26:35

Humanity’s Leap to the Golden Era: Washington, D.C., Climate Change Conference, Part 13 of 17

So, how is it that animals are helping us to reach the Golden Era? It is through their unconditional benevolent love and merciful nature. Speaking of the quality, the unconditional love, I must say something about honoring this love from the animals. For all the generosity of spirit and blessings that they bring into our lives, how do we have the heart to kill them, and eat them, to enjoy their suffering?Second question: Do the roles and relationships of animals with human beings deeply connect us further? Yes, of course, sir, of course, because the animals are very pure. They are already connected with the higher source of the Divine, so we can learn so much from them. The animal does not have to be large. It could be an ant, which is noted scientifically for his intelligence, or a rabbit. A rabbit is also a powerhouse of love; almost next to the whales, for example. Or even a chicken – you may be surprised. There was a Finnish painter who told us that when he was feeling down because his day didn’t go well, the chickens in his backyard came and sat in front of him, and just by looking at them he got a sudden energy boost and felt better. Yes, try it yourself. Rescue some chickens from the battery farm, and then try looking at them. Thank you. Now, some people also report remarkable experiences with marine mammals, like the dolphins, saying that just contacting them once in a while lifted them out of their depression, or nervous breakdown even. And some researchers have even noted a shift in people’s brain waves for the better, more positive, following dolphin encounters. So, this has been proven, with lasting changes that include more creativity and even a strengthened immune system. Imagine that? Just contact them once in a while. So, how is it that animals are helping us to reach the Golden Era? It is through their unconditional benevolent love and merciful nature, Mr. Canther - I’m sure you know this, or at least you feel it - and their absolute forgiveness, no matter what humanity has done to them. You see, for example the whales, in Âu Lạc (Vietnam), the big whales that rescue the fishermen in Âu Lạc (Vietnam), they do know that these are fishermen. They do know that they kill fish for a living, but they still rescue them at sea when the fishermen are in danger. You see? Absolutely unconditional, non-judgmental. This is the love that we humans also house in our hearts, but we have suppressed it, because the substances that we took into our body don’t help us to develop more of our Divinity, but on the contrary, destroy it, or at least suppress it, damage it. So now, we have to reclaim it again. Speaking of the quality, the unconditional love, I must say something about honoring this love from the animals. For all the generosity of spirit and blessings that they bring into our lives, how do we have the heart to kill them, and eat them, to enjoy their suffering? You must know this, Mr. Canther, since you are already vegetarian. I appreciate that. God bless you. Thank you, thank you. For anyone who is not yet a vegan, or who has not understood why, please inform yourself of the unimaginable, utterly cruel and utmost inhumane treatment involved in meat and dairy production, or fishing even, as well as lab experiments or the animal fur industry. If we really connect with the animals, or if we really don’t shut down our innate feeling, we will also feel their suffering, which is caused almost exclusively by humans. So please, I ask you, go and find out what really happens to the animals in those slaughterhouses – I will call it “mass murder house.” If you do, it’s likely that they will no longer end up on your plate. The unimaginable horrendous treatment of the babies – baby cows even, baby seals, baby chicks – will make you shudder with horror. Even the egg industry has blood on its hands. If you would like more information, there are programs on Supreme Master TV at www.SupremeMasterTV.com/stop-animal-cruelty, as well as other information concerning humans, animals and saving our planet, etc. We don’t like to think of ourselves as cruel, much less brutal, especially for something like a hamburger or a piece of bacon, but these are the facts. Animals are utterly, cruelly mistreated day in and day out to feed the very industry that supplies all the meat consumed by humans. In the news just a few days ago, an undercover video sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States recorded the treatment of baby calves, some barely a few days old. As these animals were being led to their murder, many of them were so weakened by the bad treatment and the condition they lived in that they could not walk - or they were too young to walk - they were kicked, beaten repeatedly while laying down, and they were doused with water to increase the pain of the electrical shock, and even skinned alive. Can you imagine that we do these things? It may surprise you to know that this was a certified organic facility – it’s not just an ordinary animal farm. So, now we know that even the animal products you think are somehow more healthy or eco-friendly, this is not the case at all. Please don’t eat meat, it’s too cruel. In another discovery, undercover recording, baby male chicks were being sent by the thousands down a conveyor belt to a giant meat grinder – alive! Can you imagine? Little chicks like this, so beautiful, so cute? And they do this. We, humans, do this to them. In this factory alone, over 150,000 of the tiny baby chicks are ground up… are ground up, alive, every day for dog meat or whatever meat. All because the male chicks cannot lay eggs, so don’t make profit for the industry. So they grind them alive. Can you imagine? If anyone does not believe in hell, please go and see these places, then you will know hell exists right here on our planet. These factories also supply the so-called free-range eggs. Some people think that eggs do not require the loss of life, but they do, very much so. And then there are the horrifying conditions of the pigs, which are extremely clean animals, by the way, scientifically proven. But these intelligent, sensitive beings are locked in crates so small they can’t even turn around all their miserable lives. But the worst is their actual death process. You see… oh God, I have to tell you, but it’s heart-wrenching. First, the pigs are stunned, often unsuccessfully, leaving them still conscious when they are hung by the feet and cut open with a knife. In fact, they are still alive when they are next put into a vat of boiling water, with videos that have shown them still twisting in pain. Imagine if it’s us. Imagine if it’s our loved one. Imagine if it is a human. All this for a piece of meat, dead flesh that often causes even more diseases to humans, not like it even helps us in any way. Is it really worth it? Tell me, please, is it worth it? (No!) It’s not. It’s not, you’re right. How can we degrade ourselves into such an inhumane, heartless state of being, by supporting these cruel, heart-wrenching practices? I ask myself, “How can we justify causing that much suffering to another being, when the alternative is so easy, affordable and at hand and healthy?” I hope it is clear that the best, and really the only way, is to be vegan. This lifts the immense burden of suffering and murdering of the innocents from our hearts. It can enhance our connection with animals also. The human caregivers at a New Zealand animal sanctuary say that the naturally vegetarian donkeys – the donkeys, they’re vegetarian, yes – and there, they make friends with vegetarian human visitors faster than with the meat eaters because they feel safer without the smell of meat. So, the animals they do know. My dogs for example, my dogs, I have even a Rottweiler – a Rottweiler, you know Rottweiler reputation, right? Whenever I took him to our group meditation places – you can see it on video also, I’m not making up a story to glorify my dog. His name is Goody. When I adopted him, I said, “Goody, your race is a Rottweiler and I heard that you don’t have a good reputation as a race of dogs, so I name you “Goody” and you’re going to be a very good dog so that you can redeem the reputation of the Rottweiler race. It’s OK?” So I named him “Goody” and he’s very good ever since. Whenever I bring him to our group meditation… you know our group is all vegan, and meditation and all that; supposed to be good, and no killing, no drinking, no gambling, no adultery, no stealing, no lying... you know that. So, whenever he goes into this group of people, no matter thousands or hundreds, he runs around them, licking them all over and asking them to hold his hand or hug him, or jumps on them, whatever. He does that to numerous people – whoever – man, woman, children, and old and young alike, because he feels good, safe there, I reckon. Now, you don’t have to be an animal communicator to see this, that he feels good within our group. Now, when I took him out sometimes to the restaurant, which is a non-vegan restaurant... it is difficult to find always in my travels a vegan restaurant, but I go in there to eat vegan, and I sometimes encourage my people to go into a non-vegan restaurant to eat vegan food to remind them to keep cooking more and more vegan for more people, because vegan restaurants, they already know. So, I go often to a non-vegan restaurant if I have to go out. Then, sometimes I bring my dog, whatever dog I bring. OK, now, we talk about Rottweiler, we talk about that race. He’s been so good with hundreds of thousands of my Association members whenever he’s among them. But I brought him out just to a non-vegan restaurant, and the owner of the restaurant, because he knew me, he came and talked to me. He just came, just like two meters near me only, he (Goody) jumped right in the middle, between me and the owner of the restaurant – the owner is still alive; if you want I can ask him. He jumped right in the middle and sat up straight and looked at him and growled at him already – growling only. I said, “No, no don’t do that.” So the Rottweiler was quiet. Then the man thought he could approach me a little further. He just took one more step and he stood up, the Rottweiler stood up, and said, “Grrr, no more!” He protects me that much. But among hundreds or thousands of my people, he never does anything to them. He goes and licks them all over and, pawing them and hugging them. My God, you have to see it to believe. Well, all my people are still alive. You can ask them. The animals do know, I know that from my dogs. All the dogs are the same. Now, one of the other dogs, called Hermit, he’s an Australian Shepherd. He’s also very protective. Now, when he goes among our group, all the vegans, he also lets them… he’s normally very shy; he only knows family members, but when he goes out he’s very shy. But when he goes to our group, if I tell him, “Hermit, never mind, go, let people touch you because they love you” and then he goes. He goes around and lets people touch him, and then he comes back and sits next to me. Yes, fine. But, if I go outside and take this dog with me, even to a bank, he’s not growling like that; he’s shy. But the bank people see him so beautiful – blue eyes and a very beautiful dog - so they want to touch and he doesn’t want them to touch. He hides behind me immediately. Whenever that person approaches, he just runs behind my back and hides. He doesn’t want to be aggressive because I told him not to, but he doesn’t want to be touched by the meat eater. I’m sorry if I offend anyone. But in my group he lets everybody touch him. These are true stories. And now, we must know that animals really understand who is who. So, if we know all this, we cannot support further the meat industry because that’s mass murder. In our society, we only kill someone when he has done something wrong. And nowadays, many countries have already abolished the death penalty. And even a death-sentenced prisoner, they have their own cell and they have clean food, clean water. They are not treated the way we treat our animal friends. This is really not humane at all. Please, stop all this. Please tell everybody else to stop all this. Thank you so much, thank you. (Thank You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, for reminding us how noble our animal friends are and how they contribute to the loving balance of this world.) “(Supreme Master Ching Hai's a very humanitarian woman, She's very accomplished. I sense a sense of love and peace in Her talk, and a humanitarian philosophy. So I thought that was good.)” “(So what are you going to take away from today?) (More awareness about how to help the environment and how to eat healthier. So, just a wonderful event to be more aware of the environment.)” “(And did any of the speakers make a particularly big impression on you, or what really made an impression?) (The Master, Supreme Master. The way She spoke was really, elegant and She seemed to accomplish a lot, with Her prestige and humanitarian works and everything that She's involved with.)” “(And what was your impression of Her?) (Definitely with the Supreme Master, Her presence. Seeing Her just so, calm and, I don't know, just Her presence was wonderful, to be around, and just welcoming and peaceful. I'll definitely go to the website and see how I can make a change in my diet, because the food was delicious. And I'm interested in you know, being a vegetarian and stuff.)” “(I definitely learned a lot about just the mass amount of awareness that this issue has.
