Peaceable Kingdom

A heart-touching documentary (torrent link below). 36m says it all about developing the heart-center, care, compassion, empathy, etc. When you still are a part of the exploitation, enslavement, harm, violence or murder, then you have a deadened heart-center, deadened care, deadened empathy and deadened compassion.
