Many humans kill their kids to I think you know how clearly these animals show love to their offspring. Unless you are a city person with no animals around and never looked.

Yea, you read that right.
Everything you do in this life has an effect on everything else in the Universe. Just like if you throw a tiny pebble in a pond, the ripple will affect the entire pond.
This is Newtonian physics; that every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
Everything you do (and think) falls into one of two categories; it either brings you closer to the source (God) and that of unity consciousness, or brings you further away from the source, or that of separatism. Doing actions that fall under the former category positively accrues you good karma, while actions that fall under the latter catergory accrues bad karma. It is this karma which then dictates things such as "luck", health, and ascension or descension when you die to a more evolved being or a lesser evolved being.
Everything you do affects you, others around you, and the environment.
And eating meat destroys others around you (the murder and rape of the animals), destroys the environment (watch "Cowspiracy" for proof of this), and destroys your own self, as eating meat is proven to raise stress levels, blood pressure, etc.
Thus, every time you eat meat you are digging a massive karmetic hole which becomes increasingly harder to dig yourself out of. This karmetic debt must be paid eventually; whether in this life or a next life. It is paid through unfortunate life events, such as the death of a loved one, traumatic events, and break ups or affairs in marriage, among other ways. Of course, you can offset your debt before you die by giving up meats, and doing more good than bad in this life. Only then will you be spared the wrath of your own misdeeds.
As mentioned, every one that was born as a human has done a fortune of good karma actions in previous lives to be born as a human. Thus, it is truly a sad thing to see people eating meat, as they them selves often don't know what it took for them to get to this state.
Ask any vegetarian, they will tell you that the moment they become a vegetarian their life turned around and more miracles began to occur.
So heed this warning; this is not my own personal message but comes from a higher place. If i were you and i ate meat and read this, i would at least be curious if theres some truth to this message. What do you got to lose to not eat meat for just a week? If you notice no difference than im wrong, but i promise you you will notice a shift in your being (albiet a subtle one) and you may decide to permanently quit meat like i did.

Forget karma. Eating meat (particularly beef) is one of the worst things you can do to your health period. Not because humans have an inherent aversion to meat or anything like that, but because the livestock we use for our food is engineered to maximize profit. The package says beef, but you're not eating a cow--you're eating "bovine meat product" that's been pumped full of hormones and steroids since birth.
Stuff is horrible for you.

If we truly were meant to be vegan we'd have the same intelligence as every other herbivore on the planet. We're having this conversation precisely because our ancestors were carnivores.
Well, look, based on this logic, to rise higher we only need to start eating human flesh. After all, that's the best food, closest to our own constitution, that we can currently find on planet earth.

Karma be damned then, because I'll continue to eat meat.
However, here's a compromise: Bacon Pickle Fries -
Wrap strip of bacon around a Clausen pickle spear. Bake at 450 F for 15 minutes. Dip in Ranch dressing.....
