The point of this post is your reaction to the post.
If you feel defensive, angry, or take it personally, that is an indicator that there is something within you that needs to change. (Before I went on my testing quest, I would have felt this way.)
It may not be that you need to become vegetarian. Those feelings--that reaction--is simply your body using your emotional guidance system to tell you something isn't right.
If your reaction is calm, a smile, or an appreciation for Steve (even though you may not agree with him), you're in the right place.
Thanks to my spirit guides for explaining that one in answer to my question "So, is killing chickens so I can eat eggs something I should be concerned about?"
And thanks, Steve. This was a good one. It's good to know that I'm in the right place for me in terms of my diet.
You got it. Living consciously includes discovering, processing, and releasing various emotions like sadness, guilt, unworthiness, regret, anger, etc. Once those emotions are brought to the surface and processed (which can take a while), a sense of inner peace emerges.
My goal has never been to get people to go vegan. It's to get them to be congruent with their decisions.
The Nazis themselves brought a lot of stuff to the surface in terms of human consciousness. They pushed people to ask tough questions like, "What would you have done if you were in my shoes?" I think part of the reason they were so hated is because people were unwilling to acknowledge that deep down, they were equally capable of the same behaviors.
If you had been ordered to kill Jews, would you have pulled the trigger? If you had lived in Germany during that time, would you have done anything to stop it?
