Do animals have souls?

Do animals have souls?
Do animals feel?
Do they die ?
Do they procreate?
Do they love?

Before you even go further reader watch these videos and understand the plight of a soul killed, stripped, and murdered.

Now this video above is one of the most heart-rendering videos I have seen, to see such pain and despair. Now if they have a soul, is the real question? If an animals feels right would they not have a soul? How do we coin having a soul?

Whats the difference between the four pictures? The only difference is the animal. Human beings are animals as well, we are part of the vast animal kingdom incase you wanted to rid and alleviate your conscience. They have souls. They love their children, they have souls. Spread love and not murder of innocent creatures who would contribute more alive to this earth than dead.

I myself have always wondered what it really is to have a soul. Well to have a soul is defined  "as a quality of expression that touches our deepest relationship to the very essence of the “thing” itself". 

Do animals have souls?
Do animals feel?
Do they die ?
Do they procreate?

Animals most certainly feel and most than anything we kill and indirectly murder them and validate their murder through the consistent consumption of these beings who have children whether they are cows who have calves. Whether they are dogs who have puppies, or cats who have kittens, but do we ever question whether dogs and cats have souls?

I am pretty sure we would not like our pets to be murdered for another persons palette.

Dogs are regarded as mans best friend and many of us love cats its beautiful to see we love select animals over another, but yet when there are cats and dogs murdered in other countries, where in fact it is culturally acceptable and normal thats when we feel sad. Why does an issue have to be close to home for us to feel something in our heart? Have we regressed that far into our thinking?

 Even the chicken many eat every single day , the eggs as well, remarkably many of these creatures actually tend for their offspring. Is that not part of having a soul? Or some peoples defence is it not instinct?

Now that can be argued, but we can not take it away from the fact these creatures feel, they breath, they procreate, they love and most importantly they have a soul.

They are important just as much as the human race. Spread love my people and enrich not only our souls, but other souls that reside on this beautiful planet earth. Let's not destroy it before its too late. I believe in you.

Lots of Love

Return of the Boom Mic Afro

Return of the Boom Mic Afro

Before even reading my blog watch this link!

Dear Queens,
                      Yes I called you a Queen,  to you reading this right now, This is for the women out there who feel they have to fit in, This is to those who say their processed, permed, relaxing hair is a choice. This is to those who are fighting the struggle to wear out their natural hair in fear of being judged. This is to those who do not like their afros. This is the letter of acceptance. Welcome. 

For 21 years I have never seen my mothers natural hair, How saddening and even more so maddening this is. Now the reason is usually "I just do not like my hair Shaun".  This is sad is it not? Born with such beautiful afro hair and yet my own mother hates it. Now hate is a learn behaviour fed to us on a silver platter but dressed up in the healthy gift wrapped concept of multiculturalism. The plugging of our minds into senseless materialism, that shows us everyday the norm is not our own hair and skin. Beauty truly changes hands in the economic climate. We are trying to fit in yet we are diluted. The system is like squash, we are terribly diluted.

They feed up till we are full of ideals that have aided us in our destruction and downfall, but accept me for who I am! How can I accept you straightening you hair ? That disrespect to your body, our hair types are not designed to be this way.
Think about it this way can a white person have afro hair? With any sort of treatment or procedure? No they can not

But you think its normal to break the bonds in your hair, in the pursuit of what? You think it looks nicer to straighten your hair? Afros are beautiful and for once they need to be celebrated. Not just on weekends. Not just special occasions.

Every day is a special occasion. 


Team Natural

 The European standard of beauty does truly have people thinking that their beauty is not to be accepted. If anything it is to be shunned. Shun the chemicals. Shun the chemicals put into ones hair.

Use natural products

Some oils for example: Coconut oil     Almond Oil    Tea Tree Oil
                                      Moringa Oil    Argan Oil       Jojoba Oil
                                      Olive Oil         Castor Oil       Rosemary Oil        

It is truly a statement to be a woman of colour irrespective of your shade. Shout outs to all of you!
Our hair is beautiful , special and a true blessing. Its time we stopped hiding it, yes I understand some will say they use braids to protect it which is a means to a greater end. Protective hairstyles!

An interesting read and understand its all for the love and benefit of others.
