Please watch this brief subtitled video where he eloquently states why meat and the meat industry are now bad for the long term survival of our species.

Some of his quotes (not from the video) –

“We obey people we don’t trust, to buy things we don’t need, to impress people we don’t like, using money we don’t have, for gratifications that don’t last, killing animals we don’t hate, for pleasures that don’t satisfy, dreaming of a life we don’t deserve, and praying for an afterlife that doesn’t exist, we are a stupid species”

“When animals do something noble we say they are behaving “like humans.” When humans do something disgusting we say they are behaving “like animals.” Clumsy use of the English language perpetuates the myth that animals are inferior and disposable beings. This makes the task of humanitarians even more difficult.”

Philip Wollen (born 1950) is an Australian philanthropist. He is a former Vice-President and General Manager of Citibank and Citicorp. Wollen became a vegan following his departure from Citibank and is an animal rights activist. He was born in Bangalore, India and lives in Melbourne, Australia.


This is an inspiring video forwarded by my friend and  I-Ching mentor, Don Marshall. It’s the inspirational story of Patrick Henry Hughes who was born with a rare genetic disorder that left him incapable of fully straightening his arms, unable to walk, and without eyes. Despite these circumstances, Patrick was blessed with extraordinary musical talent and began to play the piano as a toddler. 

This video is worth watching again and again. It shows us what is possible if you have hopes and the support and love of family and friends. Truly amazing!
