Do you agree or disagree?
As a spiritual being who has achieved enlightenment and as a vegan on his path to wisdom, I believe that any conscious and enlightened person would
recognize the horror in consuming animals that have a soul in them and learn to cultivate themselves off of animal consumption. The reason I ask for
spiritual seekers to cultivate themselves off of animal consumption is because I had a deep meditative dream in contact with a higher dimensional
being and they told me that consuming animals is not the way of the universe because as humans evolve into a higher plane and reach into the stars,
consuming animals is not an option. The universal way is to evolve into a species that absorbs the suns light and positive energy. The reason that
consuming animal is not the universal way is because when you consume an animal, you eat a soul that has been reincarnated into an animal. That animal
that you eat will be filled with pain, stress, and suffering. And when you consume that animal, those pains, and suffering will become part of you and
your soul, so you will feel the pain, stress, and suffering too, which will stymie your spiritual development and ascension to a higher vibration
plane. That is why it is important to become a vegan, so that you can start to cultivate yourself into becoming a species that utilize sunlight energy
and positive energy. As for those who support humane animal meat because it is natural instead of veganism.
There is no such thing as humane animal meat because humane animal meat is an oxymoron and those that consciously advocate it, and conscious knows it.
Can these conscious compassionate humane meat advocates be able to stand to witness, in addition to taking part in spending a day cutting the throat
of a living animal, and claim morally and ethically at the day’s end that they slaughtered animals humanely, consciously, and compassionately? I’m
assuming they cannot claim to slaughter an animal consciously, humanely, and compassionately as Tolstoy, Einstein, and Lin state, “Tolstoy summed it
up by saying, "Vegetarianism is the taproot of humanitarianism." Einstein spoke of the human arrogance that considered ourselves apart and superior to
other species, calling this justification for exploiting them "a kind of optical delusion of consciousness." According to Lin in “A Buddhist
Perspective on Vegetarianism “, “Having a merciful and compassionate heart will show up in all aspects of one's life; but the simplest and most
direct way is to follow a vegetarian diet.”” Even though it may seem natural to slaughter animals for human consumption because nature commits
violence too, using nature to validate animal slaughter is unjust because in the past slavery and patriarchy were seen as natural too. Only in modern
time has society reject to use the term nature to validate slavery, patriarchy, sexism, and racism. If the 20th century was the movement of civil and
political rights for people, then the 21st century must be the movement for animal rights. The reason I argue for animal rights is that meat is not
necessary for human health.
Observations of cultures that eat plant base diets have been shown to have lower rates of cancer and heart disease. The reason for the lower rates of
disease is phytochemicals which help plants protect themselves from pest also help humans as well. Research has shown that phytochemicals help prevent
and treat conditions from cancer and heart disease to diabetes and high blood pressure. Phytochemicals are thought to be responsible for much of the
disease protection granted by diets high in fruits, vegetables, beans, cereals, and plant-based beverages such as tea and wine, according to a
University of California, Davis report. With the health benefit of a vegetable diet there is no merit in sustaining animal consumption. Animals are
not properties but individuals with a life that should belong to themselves and live as they please.
When humans often thank of animals they often think of the difference that make us up but the truth is that animal are more like us than they are
different. Animals are all made of flesh, blood and bone, just like we are; they have the same five physiological senses of touch, smell, sight,
hearing and taste. For instance, “Domestic chickens display signs of empathy, the ability to ''feel another's pain'' that is at the heart of
compassion, a study has found. When chicks were exposed to puffs of air, they showed signs of distress that were mirrored by their mothers. The hens'
heart rate increased, their eye temperature lowered - a recognised stress sign - and they became increasingly alert. Levels of preening were reduced,
and the hens made more clucking noises directed at their chicks.
So please, when you think about eating meat, please think about robbing an animal’s life and devouring the body of a soul. Lives are on the line
here. As lord Buddha once said, “May all that have life be delivered from suffering.” So let us create a society that creates life instead of
