  5. Hi Shawn, saw an older blog of you called a foolish journey. Do you know there is a book called The Foolish Journey into Pain Ends Here?


  6. What a bunch of apathetic crap. How is that gnosis? That is blindness. I can see the three monkeys all sitting in a row, see nothing, hear nothing, say nothing.

    If you want change, you need to learn to change yourself. Sometimes fighting for something is worth the fight. Sometimes saying something leads to change. Sometimes taking action creates the change.

    I bet a lot of you are looking for answers, searching for truth and get this flaky crap and go “Ahhh, how Zen”. Its crap.

    If you want enlightenment, if you really want a spiritual experience and change the world, start with what is on your dinner plate. Consider what you feed yourself before you even take another step.

    The lies the world tells, the churches tell, the perpetuation of evil all begins, with what you feed yourself. You know… you are what you eat. Well, if you eat meat, you are eating ‘death’.

    God said, “Do not Kill’. He didn’t say “Do Not Kill, except for chickens, goats, pigs, horses, dogs cats, sheep, deer, elk, moose, rabbits turkeys…etc.”

    Did he? Think about. Stop right now. Really absorb this.

    God gave us the seeds, plants and fruit of the earth for us to use as our own fodder. He created us and he created animals. The animals are not ours to to kill, never mind eat. We belong to God as much as the animals do.

    We are herbivores, not omnivores or carnivores. Can you run down a goat, bring it to the ground with your hands and rip it apart with your teeth, and then eat … everything, bones, meat, organs, all raw?

    Oh, you want proof of this? Here it is.

    [Excerpts from the Essene Gospel of John, a direct translation from the Aramaic of the pure original words of jesus….]

    ‘What are the sins that we must shun, that we may nevermore see disease?’

    And Jesus Answered…
    “It was said to them of old time, Honor thy Heavenly Father and thy Earthly Mother, and do their commandments, that thy days may be long upon the Earth.” And next afterward was given this commandment, “Thou shalt not kill”, for life is given to all by God, and that which God has given, let not man take away. For I tell you truly, from, from one Mother proceeds all that lives upon the Earth. Therefore he who kills, kills his brother. And from him will the Earth Mother turn away, and will pluck from him her quickening breasts. And he will be shunned by her angels and Satan will have his dwelling in his body. And the flesh of slain beasts in his body will become his own tomb. For I tell you truly he who kills, kills himself, and whosoever eats the flesh of slain beasts, eats the body of death. And their death will become his death. For the wages of sin is death. Kill not, neither eat the flesh of your innocent prey, lest you become the slaves of Satan. For that is the path of sufferings, and it leads unto death. But do the will of God, that His angels may serve you on the way of life. Obey therefore, the words of God:”Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the Earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the Earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the Earth, wherein is the breath of life, I give every green herb for meat. Also the milk of everything that moveth and liveth upon each shall be meat for you; even as the green herb I have given unto them, so I give their milk unto you. But flesh, and the blood which quickens it, shall ye not eat.” And Jesus continued: “God commanded your forefathers: ‘Thou shalt not kill’. But their heart was hardened and they killed. Then Moses desired that at least they should not kill men, and he suffered them to kill beasts. And then the heart of your forefathers was hardened yet more, and they killed men and beasts likewise. But I say to you: “Kill neither men nor beasts, nor yet the food which goes into your mouth. For if you eat living food, the same will quicken you, but if you kill your food, the dead food will kill you also. For life comes only from life, and from death comes always death. For everything which kills your food will kill your bodies also….And your bodies become what your foods are, even as your spirits, like-wise become what your thoughts are.'”

    The time for the lies is here to stop. You want to save the world, you want to save man, stop killing and perpetuate the killing. Vegetarianism is not enough, as the dairy industry is one of the worst. Look into it. Don’t take my word…look into it.

    If we don’t change NOW, we, will be extinct.

    Love & Light
