“I am convinced that one can be spiritual and a meat-eater for example, but I don't really feel one can be a meat-eater and achieve Moksha or Liberation, no matter the level of intellectual understanding. For Compassion and Ahimsa are the nature of the Self and cannot be learned only become.”
Why putting a condition on Moksha or Liberation? Indeed I came to a point where I ate only bread, honey, butter and drank fresh spring water, until I came to a point where I did not need to eat at all. And I did not. Then I came to a point where I loved everything so much that I wanted to fully integrate, even eating anything was not a problem anymore.
There is quite a bit more to what Jesus said when he made himself available, flesh and blood, bread and wine and all. Do I dare to tell the whole story?
