"The Moneyless Manifesto: Live Well, Live Rich, Live Free" – Interview with Mark Boyle, Part 3 of 3

Let us find out more about Mark Boyle’s inspiring story as we continue our interview with the progressive author. “I started in 2008. I gave up money. Then, in 2016, I quit technology. I basically gave up the products of everything I was campaigning against in my environmental work. In 2006, I set up a project called Freeconomy, which, at the time, was the biggest skill-sharing website in the world.” “The first book, ‘The Moneyless Man’ was more of a story of my experiences of living without money, and some tips. The second book, actually, ‘The Moneyless Manifesto’ is more of a practical guide to living in this way. So that’s completely full of the tips. So this book here, ‘The Way Home: Tales from a Life Without Technology,’ it’s kind of a little bit like the first book in that it’s more of a story. It recounts the tales, the observations, the conversations over farmyard gates, the things you observe, too, about life when you get rid of the distractions.”

“The Moneyless Manifesto: Live Well, Live Rich, Live Free” – Interview with Mark Boyle, Part 2 of 3

As we continue our interview with the progressive author, Mark Boyle shares more about his current lifestyle, as well as his most recent book, “The Way Home: Tales from a Life Without Technology.” “In recent years, I’ve moved back to Ireland, and I’ve begun living without technology. From that point onwards, the day changes depending on the weather, depending on my mood, depending on how I’m feeling, what my body wants to do. And I think having no phone, having no email, is a real help in that, in that there’s no distractions. “We talk too much these days. So stopping talking for the week really made me go inwards and kind of think.” “If you look at wild animals, they’re very alert. Like, they’re got shorter lives, but they live for every single moment. I just think when you, when any of us, are at our peak, and when we’re feeling fully tapped into source, like when we’re connected to all living things, I think there’s going to be more tendency towards beauty in that, with that connection.”

“The Moneyless Manifesto: Live Well, Live Rich, Live Free” – Interview with Mark Boyle, Part 1 of 3

Do you think you could live without money? Well, Irishman Mark Boyle did just that. “A very basic thing in life is housing and feeding yourself. When I started, I felt really insecure about not having money, because money is security in some senses. But what you do find is that over time you regain a trust in the world around you. As long as you retain a good relationship with it, then it will look after you. It’s all about fitting in. it’s actually ‘survival of the fitting-in-est’. Those creatures that fit in most into their landscape will do best.” “Most people won’t want to go completely moneyless, but I think we would all benefit from reducing the reliance on money in our lives.” Mark Boyle then published “The Moneyless Manifesto,” offering a more in-depth view on the insights he gained, as well as giving readers guidance on how they, too, can enjoy the benefits of living with less money.

“DanShaRi”: Having Less for a More Enriching Life

“DanShaRi”: Having Less for a More Enriching Life

We should re-examine the relationship between objects and humans, and we should refuse and discard unwanted or unnecessary items. Through repetitive practice, we can forego the attachments to our material belongings and liberate our spirit so that we can live a relaxed and comfortable life. Japanese author Ms. Hideko Yamashita explains and guides us through these areas in her book “DanShaRi.” Practicing DanShaRi is very simple: just give away your unused items. The real significance of discarding them is to ensure that we are the main focus, rather than our possessions. Ms. Hideko Yamashita believes that all our possessions were lent to us from the gods and the Earth. While we own our possessions, we can enjoy and cherish their precious ephemeral usage. Once our affinity ends, we should simply let them go and we can do this with all things. This is the main theme of DanShaRi.

"Ethics Into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement" – Interview with Dr. Peter Singer, Part 3 of 3

Continuing our interview with Dr. Singer, he shares his thoughts on adopting the compassionate plant-based lifestyle. "Well, I think perhaps the best moral decision I ever took was to stop eating animals." We are currently facing a planetary crisis. In addition to the worsening effects of global warming, human activity is depleting many of Earth’s precious resources. However, Dr. Singer believes that we can still reverse these effects if we change our own lifestyles. To close, Dr. Peter Singer shares the important role that choosing a vegan diet plays in restoring our moral well-being and taking that step to restore Earth’s stability. "I think if the world would become entirely vegan or even vegetarian, it would be a major step forwards in our ethical standing in the extent to which we were guided by ethics in our lives."

"Ethics Into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement" – Interview with Dr. Peter Singer, Part 2 of 3

In this series, we are very honored to have Dr. Peter Singer with us to share more about his book, "Ethics Into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement." “Henry Spira was always concerned to try to reduce the oppression of the strong against the weak. He was always on the side of the oppressed. Those most in need of help. And I think if we follow that example, ...then I think that’s a very good guide for how we should act in the world.” Dr. Singer emphasizes that all beings are entitled to have rights; we should not limit such sanctions to only those who understand what the concept of “rights” means. “And similarly, it should not mean that nonhuman animals don’t have rights. We should not think of rights as only for humans. These are rights that all sentient beings should have to the extent that they can benefit from them. So, these are not really human rights. These are rights that we think should go to all beings who can benefit by the protections that they offer. And that’s why they should not be limited to members of our species.”

"Ethics Into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement" – Interview with Dr. Peter Singer, Part 1 of 3

Dr. Peter Singer is an Australian moral philosopher and professor who now teaches bioethics at Princeton University in the US. He first became internationally well-known after the publication of his book “Animal Liberation” in 1975. The theories presented in this book inspired numerous individuals to work towards ensuring the welfare of animals. First published in 1998, “Ethics into Action” tells the inspiring story of Henry Spira. Respected as one of the most effective animal rights’ activists of the 20th century, Henry Spira’s creativity and careful thought set the standard for the animal rights movement. “And I think the book is still a useful tool for activists in the animal movement, but for any activists who are fighting corporations that abuse the environment or workers.”

"Banker to the Poor: Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty," Part 2 of 2

"Banker to the Poor: Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty," Part 2 of 2

Today, Grameen Bank has over nine million borrowers, mostly women, 97% women. And they own the bank; they take the money and start a business and continue to take the money, improve their lives. Bangladesh has done wonderful in terms of reducing poverty in the country. At the end of 1971, 85% of the people were under poverty. Today, that poverty line came down to 22%, so that’s a long journey that we took. Viewing philanthropy as an interim solution to poverty, Professor Yunus often reiterates what he calls a holistic social business model. In this model, individuals and groups not only extend economic avenues to the disadvantaged, but also enable their empowerment as members of society.

"Banker to the Poor: Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty," Part 1 of 2

A Professor of Economics, Muhammad Yunus established the bank as a way of giving economic self-determination to some of the most underprivileged people in the world. His efforts have also inspired the formation of several other similarly modelled institutions throughout the world. Offering microfinance to the less privileged, it gives security and hope to millions. Muhammad Yunus’s experiment micro-lending, which bypassed the traditional institutions, was successful. He decided to repeat the model again and again, laying the groundwork for the formation of the Grameen.

”Living with The Himalayan Masters”: Spiritual Experiences of Swami Rama, Part 2 of 2

He said, “This will come according to your practice and experience.” Don’t hanker for all these so-called powers. Don’t do that. Human potentials are immense. If you study the life of great people, whenever they said, “It’s not we, it’s God (who) has done.” Why did they say that? It is done through them, why did they say that it is God (who) has done? Are they lying? Because if you did this and that it has been done by us, it will feed their ego. The greatest of all barriers in the path of enlightenment is ego.

Al-Hafiz Basheer Ahmad Masri: Islamic Concern for Animals

How animals’ role in nature cannot be understood without first acknowledging the relationship and responsibility of humans toward animals. In recent years, many important contributions made by modern naturalists have opened the doors to an improved human attitude toward animals. Let’s take a moment to reflect on Allah and the magnitude of Hiers marvelous creations. And scientific proof showing that animals communicate not only amongst themselves, but with humans as well, both to express themselves socially or to share biological needs. Animals, just like humans, have the right to peacefully access the resources of nature provided by Allah.

Since I’ve been meditating, I’ve become vegan; of course, and much more aware of what happens to animals in the world. It’s like you have to do something with this knowledge; you want to tell people about it. So, I can’t dance it, can’t act it. So, I write it, and you learn as you go along. How I found the illustrator, I googled, children’s illustrators, and I saw Marc Chalvin and immediately I knew that was the one. He’s French, and English is not his first language, And I never met him, but we do all our things. So, all our communication is through the script.
