Dear friends,

In a world where our environment is changing for the worse, it does not rain like it used to in some parts of the world, and water is difficult to come by even in the wilderness. Most of us take our supply of water for granted, but imagine what wild animals must go through just to find water for survival’s sake.

Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua compassionately supplies water to the thirsty and desperate animals of Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park. What’s more, he is an advocate for Kenyan wildlife in order to preserve the legacy of the local people and their environment.

It really touches me deeply when people go out of their way to help others, especially animals. So, I wanted to share the following article with all my readers. Patrick’s passion and endurance to bring life-sustaining water to Kenya’s wildlife is inspiring to say the least.

Please read through the article and learn just how much one man’s mission in life benefits so many, preserving our environment and the beautiful animals that live within it.

Man Drives Hours Every Day In Drought To Bring Water To Wild Animals

CHRISTIAN COTRONEO | FEB 17, 2017

In a land as parched as Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park, no visitor arrives with more fanfare than the water man.

That would be Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua. And when he rumbles down the dusty road bearing some 3,000 gallons of fresh water, the elephants, buffalo, antelope and zebras come running.

They’ve come to know the water man by the rumble of his engine. And his lifesaving cargo.

“There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

droughtwildanimals001

Mwalua fills the bone-dry watering holes in the region, driving for hours on end every day to haul water to where it’s most desperately needed.

The holes themselves, lined with concrete, often need cleaning — Mwalua blames it on buffalo droppings — and sometimes, he will just hose down an area of cracked earth for the grateful animals.

“The buffalo roll in the mud so they suffocate the fleas and ticks,” he says.

droughtwildanimals002

Many animals don’t even wait that long, fearlessly crowding the truck as Mwalua cranks the tap.

“Last night, I found 500 buffalo waiting at the water hole,” he says. “When I arrived they could smell the water. The buffalo were so keen and coming close to us.”

“They started drinking water while I was standing there. They get so excited.”

droughtwildanimals003

Mwalua, who is a pea farmer in his local village, came up with the idea after seeing firsthand the grim toll climate change has taken in his native land. In the last year especially, he says, the area has seen precious little precipitation, leaving animals to die of thirst in these cracked lands.

“We aren’t really receiving rain the way we used to,” he says. “From last year, from June, there was no rain completely. So I started giving animals water because I thought, ‘If I don’t do that, they will die.”

droughtwildanimals004

Between road trips, Mwalua runs a conservation project called Tsavo Volunteers. The 41-year-old also visits local schools to talk to children about the wildlife that is their legacy.

“I was born around here and grew up with wildlife and got a lot of passion about wildlife,” he says. “I decided to bring awareness to this so when they grow up they can protect their wildlife.”

droughtwildanimals005

Last year, Mwalua started renting a truck and driving water to several locations in Tsavo West. His mission would extend to several trucks, keeping him on the road for hours every day as he drives dozens of hard miles between stops.

“The truck is heavy and doesn’t go very fast,” he says. “We have to be very patient and go deliver water.”

droughtwildanimals006

But his lifeline has also extended from that hose in Tsavo West all the way to the United States — where three women, who have never met him or each other, help him keep the taps flowing.

droughtwildanimals007

“I visited Kenya December of 2015, though I didn’t know Patrick at the time or meet him,” Angie Brown, who lives in Connecticut, tells The Dodo. But the country, and especially the plight of its animals, haunted her.

When she heard about the most recent drought, Brown connected on Facebook with Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope. The trio — Callaway lives in Utah and Calliope in Vermont — decided to help.

droughtwildanimals008

Callaway, who has worked with Mwalua on several projects — including fundraisers for beehives and night patrols to gently scare elephants away from villages — says Kenya’s water delivery man is keeping animals alive during the current drought.

“His commitment to the wildlife and his heritage is unmeasurable,” she tells The Dodo. “Even risking his own life in the middle of the night to deliver water to a dry water hole.”

droughtwildanimals009

Callaway set up a GoFundMe page that has so far collected more than $18,000 from people around the world — all of it going toward Mwalua’s water delivery service.

droughtwildanimals010

“We have all spent a lot of time getting the word out about the animals Patrick is helping and the GoFundMe has been a real success,” Brown says. “He needs so much more money though.”

In fact, they’re hoping to soon buy him his own truck.

droughtwildanimals011

But one way or another, Mwalua will keep rumbling down those dusty roads. Many miles to go. And many more thirsty mouths.

    The few minutes a day we spend on social media creating awareness for animals who cannot speak is purely spiritual and humanistic practice because we are trying to alleviate pain from another sentient beings and that makes us more spiritual, and that makes us more spiritual and more humane.

    Looking at his deeds in Africa, I could remember what has been said about the Wheel of Life. There is 6 realms within the Wheel of life there is a bodhisattva responsible for each particular realm to help and save beings for that relam and to share the dharma. Could he be an avatar of such a bodhisattva?

  5. Pastor Patsy on Mar 5, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    Mwalua is indeed a compassionate person. Knowing that the animals will die without water, he went the extra mile to bring water for these animals. Travelling miles and miles bringing 3,000 gallons of water for the wildlife is not an easy task yet he did it whole-heartedly. I hope his act of kindness will garner him more support in terms of funds and manpower for this noble cause.

  6. Pema Thinley on Mar 5, 2017 at 12:51 am

    This is extremely amazing to come across. Such compassionate man,Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and I hope Mwulua be well and lots of animals be benefited. _()_

    Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua, fills the bone-dry watering holes in the region of Kenyas’ Tsavo West National Park in order to preserve the animals’ wildlifes, to say the least! In a land as parched as Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park, no visitor arrives with more fanfare than Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua, the Water Man. They have come to know the Water Man by the runble of his engine, bearing his life-saving cargo, with the elephants, buffalo, zebras and antelope come running. “There is completely no water, so the animals depended on the humans, if we don’t help them, they will die,” Mwaluva said. Mwaluva drove for hours on end daily, to haul water to where it’s most needed desparately, filling the bone-dried holes in the region. From experiences, Mwalua, a pea farmer in his local village, came up with this idea after witnessing firsthand, the grim-toll-climate change taken place in his native land – leaving animals to suffer and die of thirst in these cracked lands. The 41-year-old, being born here, and grew up with Wildlife, got a lot of passion about wildlife, and decided to bring awareness to this, so when the young ones grow up they can protect their wildlife,” Mwalua said. Mwalua has got three very kind women, who, initially have never met him, or each other, to help him keep the taps flowing, but his lifeline extended from that hose in Tsavo West all way upto the United States, through setting up a “GOFUNDME” page, which dharmically has been a real success, “though he still needs more money hoping to buy his own truck”. But, whatsoever, one way or another, super compassionate Mwaluva will continue keep rumbling down those dusty roads, with many more miles to go and thirsty throats to satisfy anyhow! “Compassion together with wisdom can benefit many beings,” as Rinpoche has once said. Thank you heartily for the kind sharing and teaching, Rinpoche.

  8. Lew on Mar 4, 2017 at 3:51 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful story of kind hearted people Patrick. It is indeed very rare these days to have such people who would go so out of the way to help others, especially to give help to animals who would not know how to say “Thank you”.

    The weather these days are really getting more and more unpredictable. At times it does not rain for weeks or months; and then it can rain very heavily for the next few months. It is not as predictable as before. I hope there is a more permanent solution for all the animals across the Africa.

  9. Darren on Feb 28, 2017 at 8:34 pm

    Such kind act do exist. I hope more people to be like him and animals should be treated kindly since the climate change is cause by humans.

  10. Pavara Lam on Feb 27, 2017 at 10:20 pm

    It is really touching to see such compassion in action.

    I have only heard about people coming in water tankers to serve humans not animals.
    Most of the time I hear about people killing,abusing, and torturing animals but this person labors everyday in the hot sun to deliver water to animals and he isn’t even paid, as far as I know there is hardly anyone that will treat animals kindly and that means that there are even less people like Mwalua who labor in the scorching heat for the animals living in the barren wasteland of Kenya.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this truly inspirational and touching post about this African superhero and may more people learn to be compassionate and selfless people like him.

  11. Joy Kam on Feb 27, 2017 at 4:27 am

    Such a kind compassionate human being… and shouldn’t all humans be just so? We should be the protectors of the weak, those who are helpless, voiceless, mother nature, the environment, the water, the earth and not just keep using and abusing it. The worst is seeing someone inflict pain and killing animals.

    I’m so glad to Mr. Brown making the great effort to drive all the way for hours to give water to the wild animals. He is truly a compassionate being and even the animals sense he is compassionate. The would recognise his truck coming and would even chase after it, this goes to show that animals are intelligent, they an think and feel and the certainly know if you are kind or not. They sense it. I’ve always wondered what I will do if I had not join the dharma and do dharma work, I would most likely end up working for some animal welfare society, I wouldn’t mind it at all, especially elephants and pandas! They are my favourite! Such blog post gives us hope, that there is still compassion out there. Thank you Rinpoche!

  12. Jace Chong on Feb 27, 2017 at 12:11 am

    Thanks Rinpoche and the blog team for the inspiring article!

    Salute to Mr. Mwalua for such a noble act towards the wild animals who might not cross the mind of most people when the climate changes. I wonder how much it cost daily for Mr. Mwalua to deliver the life saving water to the animals, I am sure it’s not cheap yet he did it passionately to help.

    Like Mr. Mwalua said, we should care the wild life as we are living in the same earth, keeping them alive and living well is part of the effort to keep the environment well as a whole.

    Thank you! May this inspire more people to contribute selflessly to our respective living environment.

  13. Bradley Kassian on Feb 26, 2017 at 10:53 pm

    I often think the measure of a man is not what career he does, but how he treats others and animals with compassion. Animals are very intuitive when it comes to people. They often know who is a kind person long before us humans realize it. I rejoice for what this man has done and contiunes to do. We need more like him here on the planet.

  14. Jason on Feb 26, 2017 at 1:54 am

    This article really touched my heart and also inspired me to give animals unconditional love and help. We must teach younger generation about awareness of save energy especially on water supply.

    Let’s contribute our effort to any animals shelter to bring happiness to animals.
    I’m so fortunate because Rinpoche is my mentor on animals caring and Rinpoche also want us to guide animals close to Dharma which will benefits them in future rebirth.

    Thanks Rinpoche

    What an inspiring and touching article to read! We know that Kenya and most Africa countries are facing draught issue throughout the year. Millions of people and animals do not have enough water supplies. We have been in a very fortunate country where drought does not happen and we have clean tap water everyday. Sometimes we might forget this and take it for granted. What’s inspiring from Mwalua is not only of his compassion to animals, but his spirit of going all out to do what he can to benefit the animals. If we can’t go deliver water physically to Africa like him, at least we can donate to the fund to keep this project going. Mwalua’s compassionate act should be shared in schools too as a great learning and an example to inspire our children.

  16. Paul Yap on Feb 25, 2017 at 12:00 am

    Mwalua is a real Hero. In normal circumstances, people will take advantage of the situation to hunt the animals for their skins, horns, ivory etc. With a big kind heart, he raised money to rent a water truck sending water to the animals. he is truly a Bodhisattva who care for “all living beings”. He did not kept the money for himself and family’s enjoyment. He did not talk none stop promoting himself with very little action. He actually drove for hours, risking his life sending water to the animals, this is unheard of. His action is comparable to the Bodhisattva Guan Yin who has great compassion for all sentient beings.

  17. Choong on Feb 23, 2017 at 7:00 pm

    His deeds really remind me not to just do nothing. There is always something we can do to help if we want to and if it is a good thing, we will soon find others joining.

  18. Lin Mun on Feb 22, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    Mwalua is truly a very compassionate person. Not many would want to trouble themselves or even risk their live to bring water to these animals. He has such a big heart towards living beings and the importance of life.

    Angie Brown, Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope are also very generous and kind person. They help him to raise fund so he can continue with his action to save the animals.

    I hope Mwalua will receive continuous help from all kind donors so animals don’t have to suffer.

  19. Alice Tay on Feb 22, 2017 at 10:04 pm

    Heartwarming message from Mwalua, who is so compassionate and empathetic:
    “There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Mwalua fully aware that the wildlife will definitely die without the water. Furthermore, only humans can help the animals. He is able to let go of his stress and laziness just to deliver the water patiently and passionately. Many wildlife have been saved due to his kind actions. Furthermore, he visited local schools and hope to bring awareness to the children so that when they grow up they can protect the wildlife as one of their legacies.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. This is a good example of loving kindness and compassion to inspire us to greater loving kindness and compassion.

  20. Wah Ying on Feb 22, 2017 at 4:43 pm

    From this post, I learn that Mwalua (and those who join him to help the animals), see only where and who needs his help, and delivers the help how he could. He sees what the needs are in another being (be human or animal ) and what he can. Not what he cannot, not able to, or he lacks of to give the help. He puts his compassion, love and feel for the animals, the land and his people in action.

    What he gives is simple, water. But not simple because it is actually seeing the needs of another and fulfill it with all he could and can effort to, by renting a truck, fill it with water and drive hundred thousand miles to deliver to the animals need the water.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.

  21. Samfoonheei on Feb 22, 2017 at 12:28 pm

    Touching story of such a compassionate man..Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua.
    He took the trouble to go far just to bring water and help those animals who needed water to survive. Its so compassionate of him been able to travel all alone in a harsh condition.during the current drought season.He was committed to the wildlife and he even risk own life in the middle of the night to deliver water. Later part he was joined by three ladies to crusades for the cause.He visits local schools to talk to children about the awareness of wildlife. Together they founded several projects — including fundraisers for beehives , night patrols and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this inspiring article.

  22. TekLee on Feb 22, 2017 at 1:44 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. Patrick indeed has a Bodhisattva heart. His love to the wild life is indeed immeasurable and out of compassionate. No one in the world would think of serving water to the wild life. In fact, some trying to hunt them. On the other hand, Patrick, was not defeated by the distant he has to travel, but deliver water to the wild life everyday. He will receive tremendous merit by helping the wild life. I hope he will receive more funding for his project and able to buy his own truck to continue doing this. With folded hands _/\_

  23. Vivian Ong on Feb 22, 2017 at 12:04 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article about compassionate Patrick. He is doing something which no one would ever think of. Although it is not an easy job but he still does it patiently for the sake of saving the wildlife in Kenya from going extinction. I pray that he will be able to get more funds to buy his own truck to deliver water to the wildlife. Hope more people will support him and his project.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  24. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on Feb 21, 2017 at 6:37 pm

    Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua is a true Bodhisattva and work himself consistently and compassionately to deliver the water to the wild animals in order to sustain their lives every day. From my point of view and understanding after reading the article, he has never thought of how hard to bring in the water but he just worries about the life of the wild animals. This is a selfless motivation with full of compassion to value the life of other living beings regardless of what forms they are born with.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this short article and yet powerful enough to teach us on how to act selflessly and compassionately towards the animals that needs our care and support.

    With folded hands,
    kin hoe

  25. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Feb 21, 2017 at 3:19 pm

    Kenya’s Patrick Kilonzo’s passion for the rich heritage of wildlife in the Tsawo West National Park ,and his commitment to preserving it is immeasurable, says an American volunteer Callaway. In this season of drought, he has been travelling the dusty roads for miles and miles in a rented truck daily, to bring 3000 gallons of water to animals ,like the elephants, buffaloes, zebras and antelopes, who are in desperate need of it. He fills up all the bone-dry watering holes in the area. He says, “If I don’t do this, they will die”.

    He also visits local schools to raise awareness with school children about the wildlife that is also their legacy. He hopes that in doing this, they will actively work to protect the wildlife wnen they grow up.
    So committed is Patrick that he will risk his life to get up in the middle of the night to deliver water to a dry water hole! How compassionate is Patrick!

  26. Victor Choi on Feb 21, 2017 at 7:59 am

    Came across this post and I am glad and fortunate able to see those rare thangkas which paints a thousands words. All those rare thangkas depicts the founding fathers of the Sakya tradition which includes Dorje Shugden as a Protector in it. It clearly show that many high lamas has been practicing Dorje Shugen’s practice since. It has in fact has great significance to the life and practices of the 32nd holder of the Sakya throne.

    Heartbreaking to see such a young child at age 6 having to deal with living all alone by himself just because he is a HIV positive. A Chinese orphan who cooks, bathes, plays and lives alone in the mountains of Guangxi China. Even though its an old post yet it breaks my heart looking at those pictures. Saddest thing I’ve read in awhile. There is something about this kid represent the human spirit despite being given nothing but hardship. I am glad he at least has a dog to accompany him . I hope the local government department and government leaders will help him. He is most probably a grow up young man now if he is around. Wish him all the best.

    “Our ordinary life only touches the fringe of personality, it does not cause a commotion in the deepest parts of the soul” – to me, I find this phrase very intriguing. Spiritual awakening comes from experience and not a concept of words, it therefore should triggers deeper reflection, contemplation and looking within to arrive a point of awareness.

    It is truly inspiring to read about Baba Sawan Singh who embodies compassion, wisdom, brotherhood and charisma. He is a living example of Sikhism, a teaching started by Guru Nanak. Baba Sawan Singh promoted vegetarianism and abstain from intoxicant, including alcohol, to preserve a clear, spiritual mind. He never ceased to teach and give guidance to truth seekers well into his old age, benefiting many many people. Thank you for this sharing.

    Thank you for this sharing on Guru-Disciple relationship from the Sikh faith perspective. The guru, known as the Perfect Living Master, will love the student unconditionally, and the disciple should meditate the Perfect Living Master when he is alive so that he will radiant in the disciple’s mind even after his passing.

    Wow ….wonderful to see so many people coming together for this beneficial mass meditation event. More people are coming to terms that meditation can also help us to understand our own mind. We can learn how to transform our mind from negative to positive, from disturbed to peaceful and from unhappy to happiness. Meditation helps us to turn our attention away from distracting thoughts and focusing on the present moment.
    It will be wonderful if more of this event can be held annually so as more and more people will know how meditation benefits them.
    Like in the recent case of the teenage footballers been trapped in the remote cave at Chiang Rai. Their coach taught them meditation that saved them from fear and distracting thoughts of death. Scientific researcher has discovered that for sure that meditation helps to transform our negative minds.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Very inspiring stories of three millionaires giving up all wealth and status, had everything from cars , houses, business and so forth to live a simple life as monks . They relinquished their multi-millionaire status and seek enlightenment through living simple. Wealth is nothing more or less than a tool to do things with. The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.

    Wonderful sharing knowing how the Russian leadership supports Buddhism. For the sake of a peaceful and harmonious environment the Russian leaderships accepted Buddhism in away. The Russian leadership even heighted importance of Buddhism history in Siberia. Because of Russian supports there are now millions of Buddhists in Russia and several Tibetan Buddhist university-monasteries. May more and more people benefit from the spreading of dharma in Russia.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Wonderful to see a devoted Megnath sharing Dorje Shugden practice to many people back to his village in Nepal. He is working hard distributing posters and literature of Bhagawan Dorje Shugden to his family, friends , students and Nepal’s community. He is doing what he can to share his experiences and sharing his knowledge with them. Even though he came from a different religious back ground he have the trust and faith in Bhagawan Dorje Shugden. It’s a clear example that Our Powerful Protector will help anyone regardless of race and religion once we rely in it sincerely.
    Thank you Rinpoche and admin writers for this sharing.

    I have enjoyed reading books or watching paranormal videos from time to time.. I do believed unseen beings definitely do exist. As long as we do no harm or disturb them , they too do us no harm. But in all we got to accept it seriously as in some cases the unseen beings might be aggressive. We are fortunate we have Dorje Shugden protecting us ….having trust and faith in our practice , respecting the unseen being by making offerings to them. All the paranormal stories which Rinpoche experiences were interesting and scary. I do enjoyed the snake spirit , Banging Pots to name . Seem to be interesting.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    Amazing ……The Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. It was once the residence of the HH Dalai Lama until the HH 14th Dalai Lama fled to India during the 1959 Tibetan uprising. It is now a museum and UNESCO World Heritage Site. The palace is named after Mount Potalaka, the mythical abode of the bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara. It is one of the most famous attractions in Tibet and it seem to be the highest ancient palace around the world. Its in my bucket list to go there for a pilgrimage. That’s my wish after reading and seeing those beautiful pictures of the place. Potala Palace is a must-see attraction in Lhasa.
    Thank you for this sharing.

    This article is a very precious sharing on Gen Nyima and Dorje Shugden oracle. I appreciate very much and would like to share some of my thoughts here:

    The Significance of Dorje Shugden
    a. Although Gen Nyima did not practice Dorje Shugden but he confirmed that Dorje Shugden is Manjushri and everyone knows this especially all the high lamas.
    b. There was one time HH the 98th Gaden Tripa Jetsun Jampel Shenpen was very ill and his secretary came to visit Gen Nyima. Gen Nyima advised to perform a full Dorje Shugden Torgya ritual. This is because Dorje Shugden has become the principal Protector of Lama Tsongkhapa’s tradition and therefore by performing these pujas, Gaden Tripa would recover.

    The importance of guru devotion
    Dorje Shugden always protects, helps and guides faithful practitioners in spiritual path. If one person does not practice the dharma, against the guru’s advice or disrespecting guru, will not lead the person to enlightenment path. For this instance, Rinpoche asked the Protector Dorje Shugden not to take trance in the lady. After that, it was told that Dorje Shugden never took trance through her again. The lady went to monasteries and requested to become an oracle again, but she was told to repair her samaya with her teacher.

    Focus and have faith in practice
    It is believed that Gen Nyima practiced and focused on Yamantaka. Gen Nyima practiced Yamantaka diligently that included daily sadhana for 4 times per day with rituals and offerings, mantra recitations and full meditation. Gen Nyima said if practice Yamantaka, do not need any other Protector because Yamantaka is also a Protector. Gen Nyima only relied on Yamantaka for many matters included divinations, bless and heal the people and control the weather etc.

    It is said that if you reveal the deity you practise, you will not gain attainments. But, Gen Nyima told Rinpoche about his practice on Yamantaka and this implied that he has achieved higher levels of spiritual attainments and he is no different from Yamantaka. Furthermore, HH the 14th Dalai Lama believed and certified Gen Nyima’s meditational attainments and abilities. HH the 14th Dalai Lama asked Gen Nyima not to die or show signs of old age and sickness. Gen Nyima replied that he will follow the instruction.

    The practice of Eight Worldly Concerns
    Gen Nyima had studied up to the Madhyamaka (Middle Way) philosophy level in the monastery. Gen Nyima was very humble, sincere and he did not want to sit the examinations and earn a degree. He just wanted to meditate.

    When Gen Nyima lived in deep forest of Bhutan, he had helped and healed many people including the Queen Mother of Bhutan. There was no greed or selfishness in Gen Nyima. He only took very little of the money that needed for his and his assistant’s subsistence. While the balance of the money would offer to HH the Dalai Lama and Gaden Monastery. Another example was Gen Nyima just used an Amul cheese container for divinations instead of silver, brass, wood or clay divination boxes.

    Inspiring yet powerful article and transcript of Mr Chen, the Chinese Buddhist billionaire. He has started an online games company and had accumulated worth of billions yet feeling unhappy and streesful. He eventually decided he had to salvage his own health after experiencing panic attacks. At the peak of his career he decided to put his wealth for something more meaningful. Combined with his Buddhist beliefs, convinced him to study and commit to researching the human brain and to transcend suffering.
    He gave out most of his fortune to support brain research.
    And even gave millions to various causes, including education, charities, healthcare, disaster relief, and poverty relief. He realised at end of the day , wealth is not everything , we should let go , afterall dealth is unpreditable. An example to all of us.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

    Super neat footage of Patty the Bigfoot!
    In 1967, Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson stumbled across an incredible sight whilst out in Bluff Creek, in the California wilderness. At a creek which had been freshly washed-out by recent floods, they witnessed a female Bigfoot swiftly traverse the rugged landscape. Since their filmed encounter with the Bigfoot, who has since been nicknamed Patty, many have disputed the authenticity of their recording but no one has been able to successfully prove that it is a fake. Credits for this video goes to entirely to windvale for the original footage.

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    9 months ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
