Companion Vs. Other Animals
Comments by Ray Barta - 3 Aug 2007

Oh yes! very common for people to be schizophrenic.

Albert Einstein said:

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the 'Universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

I watched a documentary on lobsters, and there was a female researcher that captured, tagged and released the lobsters for the study that she was doing. She had worked for 20 years doing this research, and often recaught and re-released the same lobsters, as they can live up to 70 years. The film makers asked if she would eat lobsters, and she said: "Yes", but that she could never eat any of the ones that she knows.

This is that delusion of disconnect that humans have. If we do not know the animal and have never connected with its soul, as the being that it is, we can remain emotionally detached and uncaring.

A fully integrated being loves all life and feels for all beings. Flesh eaters must remain detached to kill and consume flesh for pleasure.

Humans have the ability to totally remove their emotions from other beings in order to do harm to those beings. It is the choice of Evil vs. Good that God gave us. Most people are very content with Evil and having a very small circle of compassion.

Love and Compassion for All Beings......Ray
