Christmastime

Christmas is the time of reflection and contemplation. Jezus Christ came over 2000 years ago among us and gave us the opportunity to reunite with God by accepting Him in our hearts.

As a little girl I fellt very much connected to Jezus. As I grew up and as an adult I lost that feeling of Loving Innocence. I turned away from God and didn’t let him in my heart nor my life.

But God never left me and I’m part of Him. This much I have learned the past year.

When I look around me, the world in generally has lost its love and compassion. For what human beings are we if we have no love and compassion? I am glad there are people who do have this deep and profound connection to God. Who wholesome and fullhearted live in Gods Light, who therefor are Gods Light.

Let us – me included – take responsibility for our world and our actions, let us find our way back home to God.

So that no suffering is induced or created. So that respect and truthfullness arise and we have a chance of healing ourselves and the world.

Thus way we can honour the life and teachings of Jezus Christ, the Son of God.

I wish you all a peacefull and loving Christmastime.

Reflecting on the Holi-Days

These past few years there has been an increasing public awareness of the animals and their ill-being in the bio-industry.

Amongst others Wakker Dier (Awakend Animal) has held several campaings to show the circumstances of housing and growth of the food-animals. I believed all the campaigns have raised the public alertness for such suffering.

This last month of the year 2014 we contemplate on the Birth of Christ, on the meaning of His Coming and the Message He brought us.

Is it not so that Jezus taught us to love and respect every being for we are all part of Gods Creation?

I do not find such respect and care in the way we “make” and consume animals, nor the way we treat animals in general. There is so much abuse and disregard of life.

Lately I’ve been unpleasantly astonished about the supply of food especially for Christmas. Suddenly everywhere you can buy deer, rabbit, and other kinds of “wild” meat & poultry. At a certain point, after seeing several advertisements on the telly in a very short time,          I cried …

why do we need to eat (more) meat & poultry and those special animals at one of the most loving and holy Times of the year?

Wakker Dier has made me clear that the fast majority of this Xmas meat & poultry is bloated. In The Netherlands we call them “plofkip”, “plofkalkoen”, “industrievarken” en “kooikonijn”. All to be understood as bloated chicken, bloated turkey, bloated pig and bloated rabbit.

It seems that the supermarkets and wholesailers have made huge steps backwards by offering us these food-animals, and in such large quantities. Yet again it is evident that when money can be made, the well-being of living beings is trampled on and disregarded.

I hope the public will have no need for buying these food-animals, so the industry will reap a heavy loss of revenue. Apperently that is the only way for or a chance on changing our foodconsumption-society into an animalrespected-society.

These reflecting and contemplating Holi-Days I intend to enjoy biological coffee, buns, cookies and last but not least the company of my three cats Annie, Charlie and Sammy.

Kind regards, Yvon
