The Thing About Love …


We humans labor under the conceit that we are the only animals that grieve and have an impluse to be protective. Similar outcomes as those described above resulted from experiments performed on rats. See our feature The Rate Race by J.D. Galleger.

On the upside: Monkey Trek: A Rescue … Smile! 🙂 It’s about love …

– compiled by Jamie Dedes


The focus of "The BeZine," a publication of The Bardo Group Beguines, is on sacred space (common ground) as it is expressed through the arts. Our work covers a range of topics: spirituality, life, death, personal experience, culture, current events, history, art, and photography and film. We share work here that is representative of universal human values however differently they might be expressed in our varied religions and cultures. We feel that our art and our Internet-facilitated social connection offer a means to see one another in our simple humanity, as brothers and sisters, and not as “other.” This is a space where we hope you’ll delight in learning how much you have in common with “other” peoples. We hope that your visits here will help you to love (respect) not fear. For more see our Info/Mission Statement Page.

  1. Thank you Jamie for this beautiful story… that beautiful hug between Spike and Busby just breaks your heart…what wonderful people to help these animals. There’s no need to harm these animals it’s sickening what we do because we think we’re superior to all other animals.


  2. Thank you, Jamie for this heart-rending, heart-breaking video and quote. And thank God for the kindness in us. It just breaks my heart that these wonderful, wonderful animals are made to suffer in the name of science. Shame on all those who perpetrate such inhumanity.


  3. Good lateral thinking, Jamie. Begs the question: are human beings more deserving of life than any other animals on the earth? I think not. Pharmaceutical companies obviously think we are, not to mention justifying the pursuit of profit. The same mentality as those ignoramuses, who, a few generations ago, thought that black Africans were somehow sub-human! Oh, how blind is the human race, or at least certain of its members … ?


  4. The people who force animals to hurt other animals should be trailed. They didn’t live up to human standards; they have been needless harmful and this sort of experiments shouldn’t be justified as being scientific. They are sickening.
