Q: Any thoughts on why the seeming cruel nature of Nature, i.e., pain and suffering of animals eating one another came about in the big picture? The necessity of the food chain creates fear which we know isn’t of God.
A: There is no cruelty in Nature’s rhythmic balanced interchanging between appearance and disappearance.
Cruelty occurs when life’s unfolding/refolding expression is purposefully kept out of balance with natural rhythms. Disruption of natural process occurs when man interferes with the rhythms of the Pulse of Life’s expression. One example is by containing animals from their natural environment, and killing them in excess for man’s convenience vs participating in the hunting of a wild animal in a humane fashion.
In Nature, plant life is food for all life; only the old, the weak and species in excess numbers are prey to hungry predators who instinctively prey on them in the name of maintaining the natural balance of the whole.
Man routinely upsets Nature’s balance by the idea to hoard in excess, or exterminate, parts of Nature for his own reasons. The upset of natural balance in the environment and to the world populace from the hoarding of animals for convenient slaughter and convenient consumption is phenomenal. Obesity, short life spans and other diseases of inactivity combined with gluttony would not exist if everybody participated in natural balance by gathering or hunting their own food in the wild.
Outlawing the cannabis plant is another way man’s ability to manifest Love through the physical has been compromised, by putting his consumption habits out of alignment with what is naturally available and easily collected and consumed in Nature. The cannabis plant is a hearty weed that grows naturally all over the world and is an excellent source of plant based protein, fiber and nutrients for the endocannabinoid system that do not exist in any other plant. If we grew and ate cannabis vs cows, the world population would be much healthier, both mentally and physically, as we would be acting more in alignment with what Nature provides, and thus more in alignment with the Pulse of Life. The cannabis plant thrives under both the sun and a light bulb alike, so long as it has nutrient rich dirt and water.
A carefully tended lawn of grass in front of the house is another example of man being out of balance with Nature — it could be a garden of food to eat.
The Native Indians, prior to adopting European farming ways, or folks living in places like Alaska who hunt in accordance with natural law took/take only what they need(ed), as they need(ed) it. The “white man’s” ways of hoarding animals all their lives in unnatural spaces, on unnatural foods, and with other unnatural conditions in order to slaughter them to satisfy his own gluttony are cruel because they force imbalance.
Q: I am near the point of becoming vegan. But even though plants are lower down on the consciousness level, they still are conscious. I have read that the smell grass emits after it has been mowed is an indicator that it has been injured. So, if this reality is not real, does it matter about the entire food chain at all?
A: “All of life serves all of life” said Dr David R Hawkins. Plants are food for all of life, and animals are food for some animals and some populace’s of man where plant life is minimal.
In an ideal setting, ie the “Garden of Eden”, man plucks his plant-based food from its stalk and eats it as he is hungry with no gaps in locating food or experiencing hunger. That which is pruned in a balanced fashion in Nature grows back multiplied.
Evolution over the eons is a good example of how life serves life. There is nothing wrong with the consumption of animal meat in accordance with one life serving another life – the wolf that kills and eats the sick or elderly deer is not “evil” – like the hunter-man who copies the wolf’s ways humanely, he is simply satisfying his hunger and that of his kin’s. The man that keeps and kills animals for convenient gluttony is not evil either, but ignorant to the Law of Love – he does not yet link his problems and those of his kin to the cause of his own actions. He is lead by the belief that he is doing the right thing.
Neither animal nor man are evil for what they consume, but controlled by the senses and the lower ego’s programming to “get for the body at all costs” – they are not yet evolved beyond the ways of “the jungle” when it comes to satisfying hunger.
