From Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Book 2, Part 1 of 2

From Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Book 2, Part 1 of 2

Marcus Aurelius was a Roman emperor of the 2nd century, also known as the last of the Five Good Emperors, after Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, and Antoninus Pius. During his 19 years of leadership, Aurelius gained a reputation as a philosopher king. Founding his beliefs on the teachings of Stoicism, the Roman emperor was also diligent in finding his own way of self-improvement. Marcus Aurelius wrote personal notes and ideas on Stoic philosophy and spirituality as a source of guidance for himself. These notes, originally written in medieval Greek, formed a collection titled “Meditations.” We’ll now explore “Book 2” from Marcus Aurelius’ compilation “Meditations.” Unwavering are the wise notes given by the philosopher, reminding us during our limited time on Earth to live a more simplified life. “At some point you have to recognize what world it is that you belong to; what power rules it and from what source you spring; that there is a limit to the time assigned you, and if you don’t use it to free yourself it will be gone and will never return.”

Climate Crisis: Countdown to Year Zero, Part 7 of 7

In previous episodes, we learned that “Year Zero,” the year our planet could be destroyed, is 2026. However, we can prevent this apocalypse by making one simple change: global adoption of the vegan lifestyle. Only in this way can we prevent “Year Zero” from happening. “So, this is going to be over. And then most people are going to flip when social pressures flip the other way and many people start being vegan, and it starts being an actual thing.” “It’s inevitable that their industry will go away. It will end. The planet can’t sustain it, and human consciousness will not go along with it. We're evolving too quickly.” “Vegan companies like Beyond Meat’ are now going public, and this is where the smart money is going. We are hitting the tipping point.” “We represent a worldwide movement, and we will not relent until total animal liberation is achieved!” “We do have a chance to reverse climate change. People are in alignment with this mission. They will listen to us. If we say, ‘If we just reduce consuming animals, we can actually bring back the forests.’” “The moral position is to resist this and to end it.”

The Gubbio Project – Giving Respite to San Francisco’s Unsheltered

The Gubbio Project – Giving Respite to San Francisco’s Unsheltered

The Tenderloin neighborhood is one of the most economically challenged districts in San Francisco, California, USA, where many people are struggling to get by. In 2004, community activist Shelly Roder and the Reverend Father Louis Vitale created a program called “The Gubbio Project,” now a non-profit organization. Through this initiative, the St. Boniface Catholic Church in the Tenderloin and St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco’s Mission District provide daily temporary shelter to the homeless along with comforting items like blankets and services such as massages and foot care. The churches allow the homeless to have what Father Vitale calls “sacred sleep” inside church walls. The homeless are also invited to attend Mass and pray for guidance from Jesus Christ. This special arrangement provides a message of friendship - everyone is part of the community and deserves respect and kind treatment. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present the Shining World Compassion Award to each the Reverend Father Louis Vitale and The Gubbio Project plus US$20,000 to The Gubbio project as a token of love to further its heartfelt assistance to San Francisco’s homeless.”

Whoever Repents Will Go to Heaven, Part 3 of 3, Apr. 29, 2020

“It’s not the pandemic that I am in pain. I’m in pain because they will go to hell and be tortured down there forever. Or at least for hundreds of years. It depends on how much meat you eat. The one who creates this world and captures the souls, he counted every centimeter of your wrongdoing, every morsel of meat that you consumed. Would not let go. I forgive humans who sin if they repent. The Law of Heaven. I could forgive all of them, it’s just that they have to make their own part also. One percent part only, and I do the 99%. If they just repent in their heart, that’s it, they will go to Heaven. Repentance, sincerely.” “Master, if we all went TOTAL VEGAN, how quickly would the energy change, of this world? And would the virus completely disappear?” “It will change almost immediately. It’s just that what is already on will have to carry for a while, but shorter than if it hasn’t. Even if they have to go through this sickness now, [if] they turn vegan, in the future we don’t have any more pandemics or epidemics anymore.” “How can those who serve God be better tools for God?” “Humble, grateful, respectful. Respectful for your Master. She represents High Heavens. She represents God Almighty. You must respect. And you will have more merits, more beautiful happenings in your life, more happiness, more léger, more lightness, more improvement in your meditation, and in your work, in your talent, anything. And then, humble. That respect and gratefulness are also included in humility. So, humility – one word. Humble – humbleness.”

Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 89 - Lord Kalki Avatar (vegetarian) and the New Satya Yuga

Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 89 - Lord Kalki Avatar (vegetarian) and the New Satya Yuga

In the Holy Bhagavad Gita, the Venerated Lord Krishna tells His cherished disciple Arjuna: “Whenever there is a decline in righteousness and an increase in unrighteousness, O Arjuna, at that time I manifest myself on Earth. For the protection of the good people and the annihilation of the evil-doers and to fully establish righteousness, I appear millennium after millennium.” Supreme Master Ching Hai also has said that She has been coming to our planet many times over the ages, to deliver humans from suffering and teach them the righteous spiritual path. “I do whatever I can. Whatever position, we can always help people in various ways, according to the higher plan. If the Master stays in some country or some area, and then begins to raise the people consciousness, or people will come to get initiation and raise their own consciousness as well, then of course, war will be minimized and peace will be more evident. I do anything or I incarnate anywhere, it’s all because of the working together with the universal plan and the karmic pattern of the world in that specific time.” “I have even a couple of extra bodies which are not even with me, like in different countries, to do different things for me. Because, one body is not always enough. I mean physical body, I don’t mean manifestation body. They’re just doing my job, but they don’t know that they are a part of my plan or of my physical manifestation, even.”

Celebrating the Sacred Motherhood, Part 5 of 5

Mother's Day is a very joyous occasion for those who still have a mother. In Japan, if you still have a mother, they have a tradition to come out and give you a pink carnation or a pink rose. And if you don't have a mother anymore, they give you a white one. The one who receives the pink carnation like this one, feels very happy and appreciative of their fortune that they still have their best friend in the world. Well, apart from the father as well. And the one who receives the white carnation feels sad and praying and remembering the mother and pray for her wellness in Heavens, and thinking of all the beautiful times that they spent with the mother and thinking of all the sacrifices that she made to bring them up, to nurture them, to teach them right from wrong, to protect them from all the unfortunate things that might happen to them in this world. There's no end to what a mother can do, would do, or has done for their children. Any living beings have parents. Let's pray that very, very soon all of them can celebrate Mother's Day in peace, safety, and happiness, just like we do today. Let's pray that our world will be awakened soon to realize that motherhood doesn't belong only to the human race, but belongs to all beings. So, let's pray that one day all of us, all of the world people and the universal beings realize that as we love our mothers, all other beings also love theirs. And let's hope, let's pray that one day very soon, all beings will try to protect this sacred motherhood, respect, sacred motherhood everywhere in all the universes, then we will surely, truly be happy in our heart and we will truly celebrate motherhood and truly celebrate and appreciate Mother's Day. Let's pray to all the mothers, whether they are here or in Heavens or elsewhere in all the universes, will have peace, will have love, will have protection, will have safety and happiness wherever they are, in God's mercy.

Whoever Repents Will Go to Heaven, Part 2 of 3, Apr. 29, 2020

"Master, we have some questions regarding the COVID[-19] pandemic." "This is an energy. This angry energy, this unbenevolent energy in the world, because of the karma that we made. And Heaven also feels very, very furious over our treatment to each other and the lesser beings like animals." "The mask doesn’t help 100%, but it helps somehow. Actually, this is just physically speaking. You have to really have good merit, benevolent merit in order to protect yourself. But we do what we can in the world, we do what we think is logical, is the best. But still wear the mask, wear the face shield, wear hat, wear gloves, if you absolutely have to go out." "People's lives are at stake. Many doctors died; many nurses died already. We cannot just let it be for nothing and blame each other, wasting time. Have to be united and find a cure as quick as possible. Pray also. Even the government or anyone should pray to Heaven for more leniency, so that they can find a cure quick to save lives. And be vegan. Advise everyone to be vegan. That’s the best solution. Not blaming each other." "Don't eat animals anymore. Then we don’t have this animal transmitted disease at least. It’s so obvious. We have mad cow disease from cows. We have pig disease from pigs. We have fish-something disease from mercury, from fish that’s undetectable, that’s incurable as well. Or salmonella from eggs. We have bird flu from chicken, etc., from other fowl species, etc. So, it’s all from animals up to now. Up to now, all of the terrible diseases and epidemics, pandemics we've had are from animals."

The Path of Discipleship by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We now continue with Dr. Rudolf Steiner’s engaging and detailed elaboration on the path of discipleship. The admired philosopher delivers caring advice on how one can get in touch with one’s higher Self in order to live a more enlightened life of true inner freedom and completeness. “Outward circumstances can only alter the course of his outward life; they can never awaken the spiritual inner man. The student must himself give birth to the new and higher man within him. The higher man becomes the ‘inner Ruler,’ who directs the circumstances of the outer man with sure guidance. As long as the latter has the upper hand, this inner man is enslaved, and cannot therefore develop his powers. If another than myself has the power to make me angry, I am not master of myself, or, to put it better, I have not yet found ‘the Ruler within me.’ I must develop the power within, of letting the impressions of the outer world approach me only in the way in which I myself choose; then only do I really become an occult student. And only by earnestly striving after this power can a student reach the goal.”

Climate Crisis: Our Oceans are Rising, Part 1 of 2

Climate Crisis: Our Oceans are Rising, Part 1 of 2

In this series we will learn about the effects of the climate change crisis on our oceans, how this affects our world today and what we can do to reverse the damaging impacts. For the past 50 years, the ocean has been absorbing 90% of all the heat generated by global warming. Unfortunately, with the ever-increasing concentration of greenhouse gases, global temperatures have continued to rise, and much of the excess heat is being trapped in the upper levels of the ocean. This is causing the water to become warmer, and to expand, therefore leading to a consistent rise in sea levels. However, the sea level doesn’t only rise due to the expansion of sea water. It also rises as a result of water runoff from the melting of ice sheets and glaciers at both the North and South Poles. The melting of Antarctica’s ice sheet is currently responsible for almost 25% of global sea level rise. If it were to melt completely, it could raise sea levels by as much as 58.3 meters! This is what makes Antarctica the most critical indicator of how quickly our oceans will rise over the coming decades and centuries. However, the effect of this less-than-one-cm increase each year has had a disastrous effect on our world’s low-lying coastal habitats. The esteemed climate scientist, Professor Andrew Shepherd, from the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom stated, “As a rule of thumb, for every centimeter rise in global sea level, another 6 million people are exposed to coastal flooding around the planet.”

The Amazing Love of Animal Mothers

The Amazing Love of Animal Mothers

No matter the species, mothers lovingly feed, zealously protect, and gently discipline their young. Nothing compares to the pure and selfless love of a mum for her babies. In today’s program, we will feature some heart-touching animal mothers’ stories, in honor of all the moms around our world. In mid-January 2020, a koala mum was found by Dr. Miller and firefighters clinging to a burned tree. She was tightly embracing her joey. The mom wouldn’t leave the spot and chose to stay there because her instincts urged her to protect her baby in this manner. The water makes the baby hesitate, and mom waits for him to move forward very understandingly. The park visitors witnessed how gentle the elephant mother was in encouraging the little one. She walked back and forth to reassure her baby, “I am here, It is safe to go.” Many times the mom crossed the stream and calmly waited for her calf to catch up. With his mother’s love and guidance, he managed to reach the other side!

Whoever Repents Will Go to Heaven, Part 1 of 3, Apr. 29, 2020

In another work-related phone call on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, our Most Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai spent precious time to share Her love and wisdom, answering some questions that staff members had on various topics. Expressed Her wholehearted feelings in the wake of losing one of Her noble, self-sacrificing dogs. Master also candidly shared the reason She had replaced the Third Level God. “It’s the order of Heaven right now. Now it’s just black and white. Go to Heaven or you go to hell, accordingly. So, even sinful people or beings, if they repent, they can go to Heaven. At least outside of the Three Worlds, meaning they will not ever be destroyed.” “Whoever repents, I can ask the Ihôs Kư Guardians to bring them to the Fourth Level. So, out of the destructive sphere forever. That is all I can do for them. That’s the best already. Not all of them can go to the New Realm, but they go to the Fourth. And then they could go to the Fifth later if they’re diligent and study with other Masters there. They are safe forever. So, whoever can and have courage enough, follow my instruction, follow this offer.” “All my dogs are good. They are helping me every day, protecting me, telling me things. This is what they want to say. ‘For the world to have lasting peace, GO VEGAN.’”

Ameliarose - A Vegan Music Star, Part 1 of 2

Today we are meeting Ameliarose, an incredibly talented singer/songwriter who is finding success in the music world, through her soaring voice and beautiful songs. Ameliarose made it to the Top 68 of American Idol’s Hollywood Week of 2019, which is a tremendous accomplishment, especially for someone who was only 16 years old at the time! “Well, the first song I ever wrote Was called ‘Save the Orangutans'. But it was about like saving the environment. And I think that my mom was the one who kind of was like, urging me to kind of be more in the community, in the vegan community. Once I got older, once I was vegan and stuff like that.” Ameliarose, as a vegan, how are you able to use your musical talents to support the vegan movement? “I love performing, for like vegan events and stuff like that. So I’ve played ‘Hudson Valley VegFest,' ‘Kingston Animalia,’ the ‘Can I Live’ festival and I think a couple of others. But I would love to get more active in the vegan music community.” “I just did a project with a friend of mine, about trying to incorporate meatless Mondays at my school. People seem very open to the idea.” We hope you are inspired by Ameliarose’s passion for music, and her efforts to promote the compassionate vegan diet.

The Path of Discipleship by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Born in 1861, Dr. Rudolf Steiner was a great Austrian polymath, philosopher and scientist who made influential contributions in the fields of education, science, spirituality and medicine. His writings cover a wide range of subjects, and he published more than 25 books, including "Mysticism at the Dawn of the Modern Age," "The Way of Initiation," and "Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path: The Philosophy of Freedom." He developed and taught an esoteric spiritual philosophy called anthroposophy, based on "the science of the spirit." Today, we will explore selected parts from Dr. Rudolf Steiner's book "The Way of Initiation." The author reveals how by balancing our inner and outer life, one can continue a safer and more promising path in attaining higher knowledge. Further in the chapter "The Path of Discipleship," the importance of taking enough time in tranquility to contemplate on the essence of life's experiences is emphasized. "He does not learn in order that he may accumulate wisdom as his own treasure, but in order that he may put his learning at the service of the world." "Provide for yourself moments of inward calm, and in these moments learn to distinguish between the real and the unreal." "Our aim, in moments of retirement, must be to contemplate and judge our own experiences and actions, as though it were not ourselves but some other person to whom they applied."

The Astounding Falls of the Iguazu River

Today, we take you on an adventure to subtropical South America to visit one of the wonders of Argentina and Brazil in our program titled “The Astounding Falls of the Iguazu River.” The Iguazu River and its unmistakable cataract falls are the natural territorial boundary between Argentina and Brazil, making it one of the most spectacular international borders in the world. Visited by over a million tourists every year, the Iguazu Falls are ranked as the most popular natural attraction in both countries. In 1934, Iguazu was declared a national park of Argentina, and five years later, Iguaçu National Park was established on the Brazilian side. Approximately 50 years after this, both reserves were listed as World Heritage Sites by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Unfortunately, human activity is taking a toll on the Iguazu region. The Iguazu region is a place of astounding yet fragile beauty, and we sincerely thank all governments, organizations, and individuals working to safeguard the falls of the Iguazu River and the amazing life that surround them.
