This is at least the third time I’ve posted this. It proves to be very popular or very unpopular depending on the extent of addiction or the desire to give it up.

Caffeine is an alkaloid that the coffee plant uses to kill bugs, which eat its seeds. The coffee plant also uses caffeine in the coffee pods to kill surrounding plants, so the coffee plant can attain more sunlight and grow larger. Caffeine is a pesticide, which causes genetic termination in living cells that come into contact with it.
Coffee increases energy via the human fight or flight metabolic response, because the body is afraid of the caffeine based poison. Coffee doesn’t give energy, it removes it from the body. The energy a person feels when they drink coffee is the body going into overdrive because caffeine is a poison and all poisons activate an energy release in the body (fight or flight). Coffee removes energy from the system.
Coffee is proven to cause an enlarged prostate, high anxiety, insomnia, depression, birth defects, pain syndromes, unnatural breathing patterns, brain damage, hyperactivity, learning disorders (from the brain damage) behavior disorders, fatigue, certain types of cancer, Crohns, IBS, colitis, heart disease, headaches, PMS, increased incidence of muscle and tendon injury, joint pain…and that’s a short list.
Coffee (caffeine) blocks iron absorption, causing the vast majority of anemia today. The entire threat of caffeine in general includes caffeine teas, chocolates, caffeine based energy drinks, caffeine based pre work out drinks and over 2000 over the counter and prescription medications that PURPOSELY include caffeine.
Coffee: time to rethink the drink?

As our founder transitions into his 43rd year on this mudball, we at the ProIntelCo are reminded of a quote by David Craib - “Design should never say, ‘Look at me!’ It should always say, ‘Look at this!’" We strive to generate ideas, experiences and objects that enhance all of our lives daily. We are committed to continuous progression. We are profoundly thankful for our supporters, family and friends who have chosen to share their lives with us. #designislife#egodeath#eversothankful#intelwinswars
Remember, anyone who hurts you indelibly has to live with a heavy, ugly conscience, that makes them restless, deeply insecure and ashamed, regardless of the projection of perfection, emotionlessness, happiness or even victimisation they put out. They live with the memory of defiling innocence and exploiting vulnerability because they are corrupt and damaged. The loss of your love and kindness will haunt them deep in their psyches and the unworthiness of your soul’s beauty (which drove them to try and destroy it) is their punishment and they feel it in the centre of their consciousness, always. They know what they are. They know they cause pain because they feel that bad energy every day. They live with their actions only by living a lie. Pity them, have the mercy they are too afraid to have. Live your truth and trust the spirit of who you are regardless of the damage it sustains, as the pain it temporary while the strength of getting through it becomes permanent. 🌸
I have truly had it today. I’ve had it with this 3rd dimensional material existence, I’ve had it with the modes of material nature, I’ve had it with this Karmic cycle of birth & death, I’ve had it with ignorance, I’ve had it with this illusion, I’ve had it with this ego.
NOTHING in this impermanent material life will render lasting satisfaction & we are absolute fools to even think that anything ever would. ONLY when you can Transcend material existence, it is then you will find peace. 🏔😑 #currentmood#peaceout#suffering#ivehadit#surrender#yogi#himalayas#selfloathing#egodeath#transcend#trueself
"Thought" is one of our senses.
It is the direct result of external stimulation. You are NOT your thoughts.
Of course thoughts attract our reality, but then thoughts are not the pilot merely a channel for you!
If your body disappeared, if your identity disappeared, if everything disappeared then I always think "but who's minding the store?" That's what's left. Not thoughts. You. Behind them. #egodeath

He's a real nowhere man, sitting in his nowhere land, making all his nowhere plans for nobody.
Doesn't have a point of view, knows not where he's going to.
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen, you don't know what you're missing.
Nowhere man.. the world is at your command.
He's as blind as he can be, just sees what he wants to see.
Nowhere man, can you see me at all?
Nowhere man don't worry, take your time, don't hurry.
Leave it all till somebody else lends you a hand.
Doesn't have a point of view
Knows not where he's going to.
Isn't he a bit like you and me? #thebeatles#nowhereman#nothing#nothingisreal#nobody#shift#surrender#transcend#repeat#consciousness#egodeath
The main reason people wonder if wool is vegan is that sheep don’t die from being sheared. I’d like to address that concern first: Veganism, in general, is about opposing the use of animals for our personal gains in any form.
Now outside of the few individuals who might shear their own sheep, there exists the wool industry, which is far from idyllic and humane.
Wool, like eggs, is often perceived as being harmless because sheep need to be sheared- therefore wool is just a by-product.
But, just like in the egg industry, when animals are seen as commodities and mass-produced for a product any consideration for their well being tends to come secondarily to profit. Merino sheep, the choice breed for wool production, have been selectively bred to grow an abnormal amount of wool for maximum profit. Their wrinkly, layered coats can easily develop a condition called flystrike in which flies lay eggs in the skin folds- so farmers cut strips of flesh away from their backsides in a barbaric practice called "mulesling" to prevent this (pictured). Because shearers are generally paid for the number of sheep shorn rather than by the hour, the process is rushed. Skittish and unsocialized sheep can be extremely difficult to shear, and, with their layers of wrinkles it is nearly inevitable not to knick some skin.
Lambs also have their tails docked, ears tagged, and are castrated (if male) with no anesthetic. Excess, sick, or elderly sheep whose coats have grown old and dull, are shipped overseas to the Middle East and slaughtered.
Most countries that sheep arrive in for slaughter do not yet have animal welfare laws. The live export trade is an entirely different issue with its own atrocities. It is time we find alternatives to this hideously cruel industry.
Luckily we live in a day and age where there exist a plethora of alternative fabrics to wool, including ones that look and feel the same. Today we have eco-friendly alternatives as well like bamboo, banana tree fiber, hemp, flax, organic cotton, tencel, and recycled plastic.
Your fashion and comfort do not have to come at the cost of others’ lives. 🐏🐑🐏🐑🐏🐑
It's all a moneymaking industry at expense to defenseless nature. Honey is not nice-- period.
Bye to future comments about buying local honey from happy bees you named yourself & framed images of above your bed. 🌻🐝🌻
Honey is probably the product most frequently mistaken as vegan-friendly. There is a common misconception that honey bees make their honey especially for us, but this couldn’t be much further from the truth.
Honey is made by bees for bees, and their health can be sacrificed when it is harvested by humans. Importantly, harvesting honey does not correlate with The Vegan Society's definition of veganism, which seeks to exclude not just cruelty, but exploitation.
Honey is the energy source of bees; without it they would starve. Honey also provides essential nutrients during poorer weather and the winter months. The honey bee, the genus of bee used in commercial honey production, will visit up to 1500 flowers in order to collect enough nectar to fill its ‘honey stomach’; a second, separate stomach in which enzymes begin to break down the nectar into honey. After returning to the hive, this is regurgitated and chewed by ‘house bees’ to complete the honey-making process. The hive works as a collective to provide each member with an adequate supply, each bee producing just a twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime: significantly less than most people would expect. Honey is fundamental to the hive’s wellbeing.
Honey’s popularity shows no sign of slowing. The honey industry, like many other commercial industries, is profit-driven where the welfare of the bees is often secondary to commercial gain.
It may seem extreme to avoid products made from insects. But offering respect to the littlest members of our world seems logical when thinking about caring for those who are perceived inconsequential or weaker than ourselves.
We can avoid honey and bee products for our survival. So, we should. 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝
The biggest opponents to our well-being are our inner selves. At times, our shadows can creep up unexpectedly and overcast how far we've come along the way. The easiest thing to do is to give in to this feeling and go down a downward spiral. What's really benefical for us, is the acknowledgement that we are fighting an eternal battle between our past, present and future. Let go of the ego, and combine forces to become the best version of who we are in this life time.
