There's something that @brucelipton said after his talk that keeps nagging at me. That food is just for recreation. That ultimately it doesn't matter what we eat. That what we believe about our health is the most important. That there are snake charmers who have trained themselves with poison to be immune to snake venom or "miraculous" remissions from cancer with focused thought, so too food isn't as important as what is happening to you energetically.
I just can't help but think that there is still so much shadow work left to be done from the thousands of years of programming we've had related to eating animals for food. I mean we all (or most of us) actually believe that we NEED to eat animals to be healthy...so if it's more important what we believe than what is reality, why does the rate of chronic disease increase with escalated consumption of animal foods? I believe that food does matter. Yes, you can spend your life training to be immune from snake venom, but wouldn't our time be best served with positive focus on love and expanded consciousness. Instead, eating animals (and processed foods for that matter) for "recreation" would require us to direct much energy to overcoming the effects of eating foods which doesn't serve our physiology. Not holding dominion over animals for food/products is the paradigm shift that will truly allow us to see that we all, every single being on this planet, are one. That is the paradigm shift to collective consciousness. It's that unseen, shadow program that will ultimately keep us in the matrix.
And so, rather than fortifying my being with beliefs to overcome poor food choices, I choice to embrace eating foods that add to my vibe. Just as sound and positive focus can entrain my energy, so too can food. It means exploring shadow aspects within myself related to food. Consider the idea of constructive interference...which foods would be closet in harmony and phase to my being, and in turn allow me to be in harmony with the system I live in. There may be no food that doesn't actually take energy to digest, but every animal on this planet has a food it's best suited to eat. What do Frugivores eat?
