Your positivity is certainly refreshing! However, I cannot agree with some of your idealistic notions. For instance, no matter how much of a
"golden age" can be created by our mutual love and cooperation, the fact remains that everyone we love dies in physical terms. Because of this basic
fact of existence, I think we can agree that this place is not ever going to be some kind of ultimate utopia.
And yes, I understand that perhaps beings find one another again in another life, but I am talking about this place now. Look into your lover's eyes,
or your parents, or your children - and fully feel your love for them all the while also feeling they are going to die. This is also a place of great
sorrow and the lesson of it is to transcend all such conditional realms.
I like your "take charge of your life" attitude, though I tend to think it can be deluding to just presume because of some mental insight that we are
all God. (I am not saying you specifically are doing this, but it is a common occurence these days.)
I understand non-duality, but until one is utterly God-realized, such statements tend to just be more enthusiastic affirmations at best, and very
often deluding because people tend to think they can be irresponsible, especially relative to the body.
I like your approach to diet. I have been a 100% raw vegan for over 5 years now, after being a vegan/vegetarian almost all my life. (My body is
getting up there age-wise.) So I can say without a doubt that being a raw vegan is possible, especially if green drinks are used daily. (Google
Victoria Boutenko - she has some great recipes, all raw, and lots of green drink testimonials.)
There are many reasons that a vegetarian diet is lawful - for the environment, the non-violence of the vegan diet, extremely life-supportive
health-wise - and very importantly, it establishes a bodily equanimity that provides a necessary foundation for deepening one's understanding of who
we actually are in terms of consciousness.
Anywho, thanks for the upbeat read, and the best to you!
