Book plug alert! So I got word from Kind Green Planet about The World Peace Diet, a book they were really excited about. It was Amazon’s best selling book on Sunday and they were are trying to promote it to keep it up there at #1. As you all know Amazon is the 800lb gorilla in the book selling world and if it’s on the top of the list, not only does it mean that people really like the book, but more people who don’t know about it will be checking it out. Anyway, here’s some info about it.
Here is an excerpt from an interview with the author:
“Our meals of hidden violence are devastating our earth, torturing millions of beautiful and sensitive animals daily, and laying waste the inner landscape of our thoughts and feelings. The wars, diseases, neuroses, and crimes we see around and within us have their genesis in the wars, diseases, neuroses and violent crimes we inflict on billions of animals routinely and completely unnecessarily. The basic sense of disempowerment people feel to change “the system” stems from their daily meals, which are the rituals that keep us as domineering commodifiers, enslaved ourselves! . . . We will continue to be merely ironic in our quests for peace and justice and wisdom until we make the connections that are on our plates and authentically come into alignment with our true nature of compassion and share this uplifting and liberating understanding with others.”
Deep stuff. Because it’s a book with such a strong message, the fact that it’s a #1 bestseller means it could become diffused into the mainstream media. See details here on Amazon. Or see Tuttle’s website for more info.
