Ruth’s vision for the future?
“I hope and pray mass awakenment happens soon, so that we as a race of beings may step into a golden age of genuine Guardianship as conservers and adorers of each expression of creation which surrounds and completes our beautiful Gaia. What I really long to give my life and energy to is the co-creation of the peaceable kingdom of Vegantopia, which exists in my heart, on the sanctified soil of my home, and as scattered outposts in the sphere of every other blessed gentle Vegan alive. We are beacons of Light strung like a garland adorning the body of our beloved, suffering, sacred Earth.
This is the real soul work of our species as I see it, and needs to be prioritised over the insanity of exponential growth and the obscenity of material wealth.”
“My conscience gives me no respite until I have done and said all in my power to enlighten others about the need to live according to the loving and peaceful ideals of vegantopia. I spend (waste?) many hours every day of my precious life compulsively sourcing and sharing on facebook and other social media as much evidence, facts and scientific proof to encourage people to electively alter course. Please feel invited to join me, to contribute your own gifts and vision.”
