Foods - Part One - Eating what We Consider Unusual Foods


Foods - Part One - Eating what We Consider Unusual Foods
 Questioner:  We were discussing eating meat; we were talking about the animals that we normally consider food, which I would immediately think of beef and fowl and fish and so forth.  What about some of these other cultures or fringe foods such as rattlesnake meat and snails and things like that?  Are those kinds still beneficial to the body or is there something wrong with those types of meats?
The Council:  It all involves the culture or the society.  Many times the geographical area will require the need of eating, as you put it, unconventional foodstuffs, but are they truly unconventional?  Isn't that more or less a subjective point of view?
Questioner:  Yes, it is.
The Council:  What of those who in the world today will eat such creatures that would be totally unacceptable to your diet?  Such things as worms of a variety of types.  Some of those things that may be inappropriate to you or to the diet of those in this country are a high form of protein.  Do you understand?
Questioner:  Yes.
The Council:  Now, there are some animals that would be more appropriate, according to one's society or social structure and geological place of existence, but there is not an absolute no to eating something just because it might be considered ghastly or inappropriate or what have you.
There are certain states of existence where certain foods would be more appropriate than others but again this is moderated or tempered by one's geological position on the face of the earth and a variety of other things.

Special Souls Who Help Us


In this research trance one of the attendees is questioning William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, about the possibility of an advanced soul entering the material world to help another soul move forward. There is the possibility that the more advanced soul could lose his place in the spiritual realms due to his reentry into our world. That is what is being questioned below.

Questioner:  It is a sobering thought to think that someone would sacrifice all for my benefit possibly.

The Council:  Why would it be such a sobering thought? It should be a joyful thought. You should rejoice knowing that there is that much true love surrounding you. That should act as a stimulus to even work harder. Learn to appreciate the beauty that exists all around about you. Pray that you see the beauty that exists round and about all of you because in your ability to see that you will see mysteries that you never dreamt possible, miracles you never dreamt possible.

A day in your lives doesn't go by without at least one miracle. Love abounds in the spiritual realms, and it is just that your earthly creation doesn't seem to want to absorb much of it. It is too entrenched in itself and the pleasures of the physical, the sensory stimuli of the physical. It blinds itself to the real pleasures of the spirit, the real joys of the spirit. The consciousness looks at the ground instead of up into the sky where all the joy is, where all the beauty is.

Treatment of Animals - Part Five - Moral Obligation


The Council:  You must understand that placing food on your table is placing food on your table whether you choose to partake of particular livestock that is more suited for the table or more acceptable in society as edible food or meat as opposed to that which may be wild. So you have the domestic variety as opposed to the wild.  It is still ending a life, an animal life, and you are responsible to end that life as humanely as possible, as humanely as possible. Those individuals who may have in their charge slaughterhouses that do not insist that the animal's life be ended with mercy and quickly assume a great debt.  To run such a business and not take the proper precautions or steps to see to it that an animal's life is ended as quickly as possible, as painlessly as possible, simply to save cost or because it is more expedient deserves severe punishment, and so it is, it shows a callousness, a disrespect for life.  To simply stun an animal to the point of near death and not complete it, simply because it would be more cost efficient, is totally unacceptable, and you have much of this going on today.

Treatment of Animals - Part Four - Saving the Whales


This exchange between a researcher and William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, occurred shortly after the 1988 effort to save a group of grey whales trapped by an ice pack in the Beaufort Sea.
Questioner:  Recently, a large number of people expended a great deal of energy and effort to save, at the beginning, three whales, eventually, two whales that had become trapped in ice during their migration south.  Some people criticized that effort, saying it might have been better spent in other ways.  I was wondering if you would comment on that kind of expenditure of effort to save two wild animals?
The Council:  It shows you the beauty that can lie within each one of you, it shows you the godliness that is there if you allow it to come out. It is a great credit to those who were involved in such a situation. It saddens us though that such beauty, such light, such concern, cannot be shown for one another.  For each of you are as helpless as the wild animals who may be trapped by nature.  Such demonstrations of care and concern should serve as an example of how good man can be, if he chooses, but at the same time it is a stern condemnation of those who refuse to care -- for animals or for their brothers and sisters.  There is no limit to which you can reach.  Each of you have enough goodliness in you, enough love in you, that if you choose and you open yourselves up to God, you can transform the world, and every once in a while you are all blessed to witness how beautiful man can be when he chooses.  Does that answer the question?
Questioner:  Yes, it does.  Thank you very much.
The Council:  If man can have such love and concern for animals, he can have a thousand times that love and concern for his fellow man, because his relationship to his fellow man is much closer, much more natural, and much more attuned.  So use such experiences as an example to follow, an example of the potential that lies in each one of you.  The problem is:  All too many of you do not respect yourselves.  You do not love yourselves.  You do not care about yourselves.  So you wreak all forms of havoc on yourselves, and then in order to alleviate yourself of the responsibility, you blame it on karma, you blame it on a punishing God, you blame it on a thousand and one things.  This Divine Love is available to each and every one of you, if you will only allow it to flow through you, to become a part of you.  It is there.  All you have to do is accept it.

Treatment of Animals - Part Three - Controlling the Deer Population

Questioner:  In the first part of the question it was talking about deer, for example, in this part of the country we hear a number of reports that the deer population is getting very large, and so they have hunting seasons, and the hunters then claim that through their sport of hunting they are also controlling the deer population and helping out the deer population.  Could you specifically comment on that?
The Council:  Again, if it is to put a useful purpose to the meat, to the animal, if it is to be used as foodstuff, this would be acceptable, but simply to hunt as a means of target practice is totally unacceptable.
Questioner:  A lot of these folks who hunt, taking deer for example, enjoy going out and spending a day hunting the animal down, yet they do, in most cases, dispose of it as food.  Their intent still basically is to enjoy the hunt and the food, the meat of the deer, is also useful. Is there any problem with that attitude?
The Council:  For a man to hunt to place food on his table for his family is not something that should be considered wrong, it is not an evil.  It is not an evil to enjoy the pursuit of the hunt or to enjoy the challenge of a hunt.  The wrong comes in taking the animal's life and leaving it.  There is far more of this going on than you might suspect.  Many animals who have been shot for the hunt only and taken to places for recognition are allowed to waste instead of consumed as foodstuffs.  Do you understand?
Questioner:  Yes.
The Council:  When such a deed is committed, then this is wrong.  Then the individual becomes fully responsible for the abuse of that animal life.  Also, in the sport, if an animal is wounded, it is the obligation of the hunter then, the pursuer, to see to it that the animal is brought to a quick end and as painlessly as possible.
There are many hunters who would wound an animal and are simply too lazy to finish the job, to track down the animal and complete the job.  In the use of traps, those who would use such devices have a responsibility to tend to those traps properly, so that if an animal is caught, its suffering and pain is at an absolute minimum.  It is the least desirable way to place food on your table.

You must remember, man has charge of all animal life.  It is their responsibility to tend to it as the occasion calls, to tend to it properly, to care for it properly and show the proper respect.

Treatment of Animals - Part Two - Controlling Wild Game Population


Questioner:  The first question that we have is on the treatment of animals. The question is:  In some of our wild game areas, it is claimed that deer and some other animals, if left alone, will multiply to the point that starvation will occur.  Hunting seasons are justified on this basis.  Ranchers claim that certain predatory animals must be killed to protect their sheep, cattle, etc.  Would you comment regarding the morality of these situations?
The Council:  If the rules or laws are set so that it is necessary to protect livestock that is generally considered foodstock, then a degree of control would be acceptable only to the extent that certain predatory animals would cause damage to foodstock. Do you understand?
Questioner:  Yes.
The Council:  For man to control the population of what is referred to as wild animals or wild game, if this control is exercised properly and with a humane approach and the stock or the control is not wasted, in other words, simply to dispose of animal life and leave it rot or waste would not be acceptable.  Man has a choice, to let nature control the population of certain animals or for him to step in and humanely control it.  But in so doing man cannot wantonly kill but must make use of those that are controlled or taken out as a controlling element.
