Why is there suffering?

hello dearest friend. my question is regarding animals who are destined to be in slaughter houses and raised to be consumed by humans. i’ve been a vegetarian for some years and recently became a vegan. i know every human came into this dimension choosing their path. and i also know that humans can choose animal lives to experience. do they choose the life to experience that pain and suffering? i guess my real question is, why is there an increase in the brutality of the meat industry and the increase of (animals) suffering? thank you for allowing me to submit. namaste <3

— etherealgoldI  believe everything happens for a reason, maybe spiritualists argue this one and continue to argue this one. It’s very controversial and a touchy subject. It’s basically in the same regard of asking why do bad things happen to good people? It’s through our suffering that we learn to find the light in the darkness. In this same way i have been on both sides of the net, I have given up animal meat and i have also been an omnivore, it’s the choice of the empath really. I don’t consider eatting an animal an act of pure hatred and brutality. Of course no one truly agrees with the meat industry or the entire food industry but it essentially the circle of life. I see my meal as a sacrifice to help give me nourishment and balance my protein levels. The mind is a very powerful thing, if you believe you are feeling the violence and torture that went into the animal before dying, you will feel your essentially eatting a dead carcass but if you bless your food and give thanks for the animal and mother earth you are giving your food a beautiful positive energy. It is all fear really. If you were out in the wilderness for months on end, you would see that the Animals eat meat too and they eat other animals and other animals eat other animals we got in a cyclical pattern of species eatting other species because this is the way nature intended. Humans are omnivores just in the same way that most animals on this earth are omnivores. ( I can hear the vegetarians and vegans screaming already…but hear me out). How is it no different that a Lion kills an Antelope for his family’s dinner than we kill animals for food for survival? There is no need for torture and i wish deep down that we had a more civiled and moralized way of killing through a method of pray, blessing and sacrifice but now a days people don’t hunt down their food, they buy it at a grocery store regardless.

It’s truly the energy you put behind the food, when you cook a meal or bake do you put love into your food or do you put anger? All is symbol, even Vegetables have feelings because they are alive. So even when you eat vegetables you’re still eatting something that is a different being. It’s more a matter of learning to accept the fact that we are omnivores and it is your personal choice on if you want to eat meat or not eat meat. It doesn’t make you any less or more spiritual if you do. You could even fast if you want to like the monks if it makes you feel better and live off of energy and osmosis but it won’t feel very satisfying in the long run plus your body will fight back. I think it’s a personal choice ultimately. I was once the reading food labels, avoiding all foods that weren’t organic and only eating a limited amount of things because i was stuck in the fear mentality. oh if i eat processed chemicals this is going to hurt me or if i eat meat i feel the animal’s suffering or if i eat something with too much sugar it will hurt my pineal gland. WRONG. Your external reality cannot dimminish you internal energy if you let it. You are your own person and therefore your energy is fueling your brain chemistry. If you tell yourself your food is gross it will taste gross if you tell yourself your food is wonderful, nourishing and blessed it will taste amazing. It is all a matter of what energy you fuel the thought behind. I started eating meat again because i was developing low protein levels during my pregnancy, It was unhealthy for me and the baby. I tried eatting only plant based proteins but that didn’t work out so well.  It was a personal sacrifice to me at the time but i learned a lot about how once i directed that energy towards knowing it was helping my baby i was no longer afraid of eatting meat or only eatting organic because believe me he’s the healthiest ever and i ate so much stuff lol.

Choosing to eat meat is a personal choice it’s also wise to listen to your body rather than your mind when it comes to your eatting habits, sometimes when you lack protein you can feel very ungrounded,airy fairy floaty and sometimes even fearful. I also know other people who actually got sick and malnourished because they stopped eatting meat. It’s a choice ultimately if you choose to not eat meat you have to find a way to keep up with your protein and also grounding. I don’t think we can just change monsanto over night, society has to wake up and realize what is happening but it’s more important for you to realize that all these articles are fear mongering. nothing more. The factories will keep doing what they are doing and we have to accept that or figure out a way to change it. Everything happens for a reason, in the old days people had to kill animals for surivial and now it’s a personal choice.

The Animals all have their place and pathway too just in the same regard as how some humans pass on and others don’t, it’s really the circle of life. Asking me to explain the bruality of the world is really asking ourselves why did mankind decide on these fates and structure of creating the food industry this way? Why do we have crime, rape, torture, etc. I think it’s best to understand a system of balance. You need to balance your body as much as the animal needs to balance theirs, we eat various foods to achieve this and the animals eats various species to achieve this. It’s all order and divine. Why would Mother Nature put all these animals here on Earth if not for a reason and a purpose, in the same way that humans are here for a reason and a purpose to live, grow, evolve, Thrive. Just remember all this pain is illusion for we are eternal.

Mufasa“Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.”
Young Simba“But, Dad, don’t we eat the antelope?”
Mufasa“Yes, Simba, but let me explain. When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.”—Mufasa teaching Simba about the great Circle of Life

Therefore i believe as long as you keep a healthy well-balanced diet who am i or who is anyone to judge on your eating lifestyle. Do what you feel is best for YOU and your personal health. It’s all about balance and understanding we all have our place in this world within the Circle of Life connected within the heart of Mother Earth.

Namaste <3
