POOF! You're vegan. See how easy it is to not be a selfish jerk? I love animals. How can you not love animals? You should love animals too. They would love you, they would befriend you... that is if you weren't busy stuffing your face with them and giving yourself coronary artery disease. Pervasive compassion is your spiritual potential. Will you reach it? Until we all do, our planet is in jeopardy, and billions of animals just like your cat or dog are subject to horrific violence. You can stop it.
