The Sun: Non-violence begins with oneself

My most recent outing in the Sun, in preparation for the Yoga for Furry Friends Farm, taking place this Sunday, 10.00 am at the British International School, Kuala Lumpur.

When we think of non-violence, we think of harm to people, animals and our environment. I believe that outward violence we experience from others is a manifestation of inward violence that a person experiences.

I have found that when I am gentler with myself, I tend to be gentler towards others. When I stop having expectations, and just look around with gratitude, life becomes smoother and sweeter. It is possible, and with each attempt, it does get easier.

Of course, when it comes to animal abuse, the issue is far greater than a bit of self-doubt, insecurity or anger. These patterns are rooted in the perpetrator, and potentially explosive for society. This is the reason why the FBI has listed animal cruelty in its Group A felony list together with homicide, arson and assault. Studies show that people who torture and kill animals are prone to violence against other people.
