Look, I don't post these photos and videos just to shock you. Most people avoid looking at videos such as these because they are disturbing and people hate to be disturbed by sights of animal cruelty. They don't want to be disturbed, they don't want to know it exists, they don't want to actually take action to make a change in their life or the world.
One of my students, a very advanced soul in India said that his heart had grown inured from seeing animal and child cruelty in India. He said everyone grew up with it and became hardened from feeling the suffering of other sentient beings.
Look at the video. It is unspeakable. But it is happening in China. Dogs beaten, skinned alive and thrown alive, bloody and skinless in a pile, slowly and painfully dying. This is China, and Korea and Vietnam, all the countries of Buddhist pacifism. There is something terribly wrong with far eastern culture.
To a lesser degree this is what I deal with every day on the streets of Los Angeles, homeless cats starving, dying of disease and accidents and being eaten by coyotes, or killed by people that don't like them coming onto their property. People don't even want to hear about this. Why? Deep in everyone's soul is a feeling of great love and compassion for all sentient beings, and these kinds of videos hurt that sense deeply, but we feel powerless to do anything. But you can. Change yourself or change the world. Or do both!
So, what do you do? There are two ways to react that are beneficial: withdraw from the world into yourself and find that it is illusion, or take up action to create circumstances where the harshness of consciousness and the world is tamed a little bit at a time. I think you can do both if you use the technique of finding and loving the I Am. This method requires you to confront all of our emotional reactions to internal and external events.
