Beauty is not an illusion.
God is an artist.
Honor Life, Honor Creation.
We only eat animals because our spirituallity is being supressed.
But that will change.
It takes 1 to become 1+
You cannot take away soul from body.
IT'S WHAT MAKES US HUMAN!

Sorry to disagree, but Beauty is only a symptom.. a partial result of the interplay between energy creating form.. other than that everything is an
illusion.. it just is not real...matter is not real as it is filled with space and therefore not solid at all.
Yes beauty makes us feel good when we observe it, I think that is its primary role in this construction.. but I do not think for one minute that an
omnipotent being chose to implace things more aesthetically to create what we call beauty.. after all each of us sees it differently so what is beauty
to one is not to another.
Why do we need to honor life and creation? Are we not parts of it? Do we then worship ourselves because of this? We have life whether we are alive in
the flesh or otherwise. Life does not end just because the body we wear has fallen away.
We eat meat because a long time ago we lived according to our nature as animal. The benefit was faster evolving of bigger brains and ability to grow
beyond the then restrictions of form. Yes the energy of eating meat is poor for us.. mainly due to how the animals are killed for us today... no
thought for the offering being given, etc.
Our spirituality has always been present, we on the other hand have forgotten more about the reality than we have gained from our long and desperate
need to chase materialism into the negatively balanced aspect. Yes there have been control dramas played out on humanity for many thousands of years,
which is very human don't you think? Yes there is a change afoot, but it is taking a long time to reach out into the grass roots level in our world
because we have all been indoctrinated into our specific Belief-Systems and patterns. This will change as you say, but only when enough of us come
together to advance the simplest forms of growth for all people.
There seems to be a constant misunderstanding in these threads about Human Souls. There is no such thing. All souls are only souls, huge and powerful
beings.. and we each choose what embodied experiences we want to have without some overiding omnipotent being telling us what to do. We do it instead
through choice,to have the experiences on offer in each world.. this assists what you call God to know itself.
I only use the word God in conversation, aside from that, one omnipotent God is a fallacy pushed on us by those who sought control of your beliefs and
therefore your actions. Imagine then how "bad" you must be to not believe and instead forge your own path into a greater awarenesss of outside the
The soul can be detached from the body... too easy. We do it everytime the body dies, we remove the operating system from the physical form so that it
decays while the energetic system remains in real-life. Real-life being the reality beyond our small-minded perceptions while within the flesh.
Can I tell you this important and usually unknown fact?
Enlightenment is not a Trophy. It is not something you attain or struggle to achieve and are therefore always enlightened. Once you have had an
initial enlightenment experience, you will be tested and retested to see whether you can learn to handle the power within yourself that enlightenment
provides the direct experience of.
Enlightenment is simply about your ability to open up to your own higher awareness "level' at will. To simply use that power responsibly for the
benefit of all other beings... that includes all living things as all living things are beings.
Most of us, when we have an initial enlightenment experience, fall down the same trap... ego can become unbalanced into the negative aspect, the mind
can become unbalanced due to the stressful nature of Knowing, and this has always been the danger with Kundalini raising to enlightenment. And why so
many who have had an initial experience but not balanced within it, have become unhinged mentally or egoically.
To yell,"I am Enlightened" for all the world to hear is unbalanced ego in play. Make sure you balance that out before you move on to the next
experience level and responsibility.
Lastly, what makes us human? Taking on the human form and residing in the flesh is what makes you a human being. But, the truth is that is secondary
to your real nature as Soul.. so really, you are only being a Soul, inhabiting a flesh vehicle designed specifically to move your human-level of
awareness around in this 3D construct.
You are Soul before you are Human, and, you were probably other forms of life in other worlds before choosing this world to experience being a human
Hope this is some help.
