A Chant for Finding Lost Items

natural-magics:

Think of and visualize the item you wish to find.

Keeper of what disappears,
Hear me now - open your ears.
Find for me what I now seek,
By Moon, Sun, Earth, Air, Fire, and Sea.

Blessing For Cats

fuckyeahpaganism:

Bast of beauty and of grace,
Protectress of the feline race,
Shield (name) from all hurt and harm
And keep him/her always safe and warm.
Watch over (name) from day to day
And guide him/her home, if (s)/he should stray.
And grant him/her much happiness
And a good life free of strife and stress.

-Dorothy Morrison

Probably the best Vegan/Veg ‘propaganda’ I’ve ever come across. It was given to me near Wells Hall by some timid Indian dude saying “Help end violence.” As I am not a fan of violence, I grabbed one. I’ve read a lot and seen a lot of anti-cruelty articles/videos, but this was powerful AND practical. It didn’t rely on sex to sell (cough, cough, PETA), and didn’t overstep any boundaries by showing horrific extremes in the cases of slaughterhouses. The booklet merely went through the slaughter process for all the animals humans consume nearly daily. It had citations and websites for further information on every statistic or fact posted. 
My favorite part though, was that (despite being distributed by Vegan Outreach) it opened with

Thank you for accepting this booklet. As you read on, please bear in mind that opposing the cruelties of factory farming is not an all-or-nothing proposition: By simply eating less meat, you can help prevent farmed animals from suffering.

and concluded with

If you decide to eliminate animal-derived foods from your diet, please remember: the objective is to reduce suffering, not to achieve personal purity or perfection.

It was simple, down to Earth, and honest…not elitist, or finger-pointing like (once again) PETA. It recognized that many people are very close minded to a vegetarian lifestyle, and did not criticize this (directly at least…a few quotes included criticisms of the “schizoid quality to our relationship with animals, in which sentiment and brutality exist side by side”). The variety of sources was astounding, it ranged from medical journals, to Jeremy Bentham, to the NYTimes, to on-site observations of slaughterhouses. 
Long story short: This pamphlet made me cry, and I don’t cry much. It made me so happy I’ve already been preventing cruelty for nearly 5 months now. 
I would love to eliminate the stereotype that vegetarians are a bunch of elitists and are disgusted with everyone who chooses an omnivore diet. I would love to see more vegetarian/vegan groups trying to spread compassion without relying on sex, playing on insecurities, and blame.

It takes less than 30 seconds and less than 10 clicks to do all 4 links…PLEASE help dogs and cats in shelters!!

crowdog66:

do-not-touch-my-food:

1 - gives kibble to dogs in shelters with a single click

2 - gives 10 pieces of kibble to dogs in shelters, whether you get the question right or not

3 - gives 10 pieces of kibble to cats in shelters, whether you get the question right or not

4 - gives cat litter to cats in shelters with a single click

I’m not saying anybody HAS to do this, but it IS quick and easy. :)
