Which would you choose – Beautiful or Hell? Stupid question right? Well not really – you see many of us, well most of us actually, live in our own ignorant bliss. We choose lifestyles to our liking and turn our head from things we don’t like, I am as guilty as anyone else, I refuse to look at things that hurt or disgust me, but while we all do this, the horror still lives!
Beautiful Or Hell?
So what am I going on about?
Well last night I was talking with a friend who I have not known for that long, this friend longs to prod and poke to find out who I really am and what I am all about. I have to admit I do my best to avoid her questions because our lives are so different and I know she will not understand my choices.
My friend thinks I am a strange being who follows a funny diet and has some odd interests, that will be my spiritual woo woo then! She wants to understand but cannot help herself from making it very clear that she has no intention of becoming vegetarian or vegan, I have that familiar flutter inside me that tells me to avoid setting myself up for ridicule and possibly losing a friend if I voice my opinions about conventional diet. The problem is, she does have questions and I should offer the answer, but she won’t like it!
She asks “why are you against eating meat”? Oh wow please don’t get me started! So I try to explain in the most gentle way I can but see her expression change, she almost looks like she feels sorry for me! So I back off!
So there I go in my ignorant bliss, back to my beautiful world not allowing myself to be pulled in, she would be horrified by what I have to say, so I slink away and decide that she can view in her own time, I really want to get on my soap box but that wouldn’t do would it? For me to voice my opinion would seem like I am making judgement rather than trying to help her see a better way, but it is easier for her to judge me as she is happy in her ignorant bliss – who am I to interfere with that?
I Choose My Beautiful World
As a youngster I did not eat meat, this was for no other reason than my Mum’s cooking left a lot to be desired, she did her best – God bless her, but I grew up with a very strange relationship to food, I believed all meat was horrible because it was like chewing an old shoe, ( not that i know what chewing an old shoe is like) the only thing I liked was potatoes and cheese.
As a teenager I got into the fast food like my peers, and then later the dawning came! I was a typical naive fool who did not question where the food in the supermarkets came from, where on earth did I think meat came from? Yep – suddenly I realized it was actually originally an animal! I was mortified – how could I eat meat, I love animals? Yeah – sounds stupid right?
So that was where the vegetarian bit for me started and I was on some sort of mission. I was so shocked it’s silly but I felt real pain. I felt that I had not been given the opportunity to choose, why was I not educated as that youngster? Why had I not been taught where food comes from? How could I have been so stupid?
All my questions took my mind into turmoil, I was torturing myself with the visions of what happened to these animals, but still naive – I had no idea what sort of life these creatures had before they ended up on a plate! I started to discover the reality and I can only say it was and still is real heartbreak to me what goes on in the livestock world, and I believe we should all take a look, it is not only disgusting and cruel to these beautiful creatures but it is cruel to humans too, cruel because we are not educated about what we are really digesting – do you think that meat you eat comes from a happy healthy animal?
I Want to Live A Beautiful Peaceful Spiritual life.
We are all spiritual beings and the value and quality of our life starts with what we eat, this is where the cycle begins. If we eat good nutritional beautiful living food then that is what WE become, beautiful and living. If we eat flesh from a tortured animal that has been fed drugs and treated with such violence and disrespect then that is what WE become – plain and simple!
Mother nature gives us all we need and many times it is for free, fresh fruit and vegetables just offering us health, we have no reason or excuse to mass produce bad quality meat, or be cruel to God’s creatures, it is unforgivable!
I am not about telling people that they should not eat meat, but I am about telling people that if they want a healthy happy life then they should consider deeply what they choose to eat. When we eat flesh from these poor animals we are digesting their pain and their hell, their drugs and their disease and yes I say it again, that is what WE become – violent, angry, sad, full of toxic drugs, emotionally unbalanced and at risk of disease.
Doesn’t it make sense that this could be part of the reason for our world being in turmoil, full of pain and discontent – hell?
I cannot begin to tell you how beautiful life becomes when you choose a healthy meat free diet, it is life changing and beautiful. It is the spiritual way to live, the mind becomes clear and honest, things fall into place and you walk through life with joy and compassion, not out of balance confused and numb. It is hard to put into words and I know it sounds a bit strange, you just have to experience it for yourselves. You really are what you eat or more – what you digest! Your life is worth living beautifully.
Choose to live a beautiful life, eat fresh living organic fruits and vegetables, just start to include more of these foods in your diet and you will never look back, choose beautiful, choose life, choose health!
Below is a link to a video that may shock you, I have to admit I cannot watch but believe that we all need to see these things and wake up!
WARNING This video could change your life – if you have a heart it will break! If you want to continue to eat meat – then don’t watch it!
