A Thought on Vegan Morality

I think people do not realize that plants are living creatures too. It probably hurts like hell to be pruned and harvested and consumed. Nature is just that way. Animals eat other animals alive in a very vicious process. Plants choke each other out and fight for sun and nutrients. We humans have these unrealistic ideals because nature has become foreign to us and we think we can make everything a fair system according to every living thing. But we can’t. There are processes that are necessary to life. The best thing we can do is embrace the self evident and find meaning to it all.

A Fresh Immortal Exists in Innocence

Try to embrace the circle of life and not be the judge of such an incredible process where nature eats itself to 1) maintain freshness and innocence, and 2) achieve immortality.

The Cost of Clarity

At some point, if I want clarity, I have to set aside what I think should be right and wrong and allow the self evident to penetrate my conditioned mind.

I was a naive hippie.

I once was a naive hippie who thought the plants and trees were more evolved in their nature because they were peaceful and I enjoyed their company.  Once I really got to know them, they showed me they were far more brutal than I and that they were strong enough to face the reality of the situation.  We humans have strange needs for irrelevant concepts and ideals that can only exist in our minds.  We are so afraid of being unhappy with things that we end up living in a desperate delusion.  What fools we are!

Decay Feeds Growth

The decaying will always be food for the growing.

We will try to morally object that until we become food.

Hate Preserves What is Hated

The things we hate

we would rather see destroyed

than to grow

Destruction of energy is not an option.  These attempts result in a stagnant state of the energy in focus.

Transmutation is an option.   It is true that the only way is through.

My Opinion Got in the Way

It is not possible to see clearly

The Divine is in our Creative Expression

Dance with the Divine and the result is what we call creative expression.  This communication is not solely for our entertainment if we are able to see…

The Unnoticeably Strange Present

We continue to dig for information and knowledge and answers and other bullshit like that.

We continue to read line by line as if we missed some great message that should be there.

All this effort and the result is a numbing of sensitivity to direct perception.

At any point in life we may lose grip of all the bullshit and realize how strange the present moment is.

It can sneak up and leave reality exposed naked with all of the parts we try not to see.

There is a big process going on and our little stupid words like; morality, love, evil, God, free will, etc. cannot begin to touch it.  It does not matter if we like it or think it is right or wrong.  We can decorate the process and see what makes us more comfortable, but the process will continue and the show must go on!  The persistent result is creative expression, which requires destruction, and contains more than a clever message to put into words.  If you can feel life at its greatest magnitude with unwavering fearless strength, then you have conquered all you have to conquer.

Stuck in the Field of Battle

We are dealing with many new things coming to light in this lifetime. 

We will choose whether to understand or to condemn what is new to us or what seems out of place or wrong. 

We have had sides for as long as we know which gives creation to battlefields.

This is because balance must persist in harmony with our actions.

By choosing sides balance must persist with an equal degree of opposition.

Now it is time to find ways to bring the sides together (not just in battle) and see it as a formula, knowing that energy does not dissipate, it only moves.

Choosing sides will not make the other side less real.  It is like pain or fear, you have to face it or it will just get louder and louder.

Be humble and curious rather than righteous and condemning and you will find yourself free of the battlefield.
