(Extracts from the Book “Cooking & Eating Wisdom for Better Health)

The ancient Greek diet, somewhat surprisingly, was mostly vegetarian. The vast majority of Greeks even those in the higher classes, did not eat red meat or even poultry on a daily basis.

Many of the Ancient Greek philosophers and people we remember today such as Pythagoras and Hippocrates were vegan or vegetarian. There were also many who were fruitarians.

After the council of Nicea, many gospels were hidden and changed to suit Constantine and the other religious leaders of that time. One fundamental change was the elimination of Jesus Christs commandments and his humane, vegetarian and pacifistic doctrines and replaced by false supernaturalism and false teachings. I say vegetarian because in baked goods was included “milk of the flock” (ewes/sheep). Important teachings, words and meanings were changes to suit the few with an ulterior agenda.

This blog is not intended to cast any judgment on anyone reading it that eats meat, poultry or meat (“flesh”). I ate flesh because I was raised in a family that consumed flesh. I did not know any better and followed the same eating habits.  It was not until I studied the Ancient Greeks and their healthy practices that I discovered veganism and became a vegan for many years. I later changed my diet and was vegetarian, occasionally eating flesh. I have since returned back to a plant-based diet.

Ancient Greece

Plutarch, Greek historian and biographer, informs us that “the ancient Greeks, before the time of Lycurgus, ate nothing but fruit,” and according to Onomacritus of Athens, a Greek compiler of oracles, “each generation reached the age of 200 years”. Why is it that in today’s technologically and scientifically sophisticated society, many people cannot achieve longevity?

In ancient Greece many people avoided animal flesh altogether. They believed that by eating the flesh of animals that had been slaughtered they would be ingesting pain and that this was detrimental to ones health. Plutarch tells us: ‘Man is by nature not a carnivorous animal’. ‘It is not natural to mankind to feed on flesh, we first of all demonstrate from the very shape and figure of the body. For the human body no way resembles those that were born for ravenousness’. ‘Shall we reckon a soul to be a small expense.’ ‘Animal food is injurious: it clogs and confuses the mind’ and the ‘mind weak and feeble’. It operates unfavorably on character’. ‘If we must eat flesh let it be with sorrow and pity; not tormenting and abusing the poor animal before taking its life. Animals have senses. ‘Who knows the bodies of animals may contain the souls of deceased men.’

Pythagoras himself was a strict vegetarian and the members of his esoteric school were not allowed to eat meat. He was not so strict, however, with the probationers who had not yet commenced their study of practical Occultism. These were permitted to eat the flesh of certain animals, excluding, however, the brain and heart.

In order to minimize the consumption of pain and the suffering of nature then we must either eliminate our consumption of flesh or at the very least minimize it. It is also important before consuming any meat, seafood or poultry that we thank the animal for sacrificing its life for our enjoyment and sustenance.

When we are eating animal meat where the animal has not been treated with respect or not slaughtered with respect, we are also placing the energy of pain into our body. It is therefore important to bless and give gratitude to food before we consume it to decrease the negative energy left on these ingredients. This is one of the reasons why in the Greek Orthodox religion a priest is often sent around the village to bless and say a prayer to a lamb or goat during Easter before it is slaughtered and to bless the food before it is eaten.

We all need to be aware of what we eat. What does your food say about you? Where did your ingredients come from and what type of energy is attached to them? Choose a diet that is kind to you and the environment. The body is a gift for which we are responsible for. What we feed it and what energy we put into it will determine how we feel and think. When it responds well to wholesome food, we will have good health and the energy we emit to the world will be positive and healing.

Jesus Christ Teachings

The Bible tells us that when God created the earth he created fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and herbs to nourish us and to heal us. “And God said, “Behold I have given 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”. Genesis 1:29

God thought of everything for our wellbeing and good health. God provided us with an abundant amount of fruit, vegetables and herbs all with their unique energy and nutrients to nourish us, heal us and to take care of all our pharmaceutical needs.

Jesus Christs views on the eating of the flesh can be found in many books of the Bible that were not included. This includes the lost scrolls of Jesus Christ and the Gospel of Ebionites.

Jesus Christ Shares, “Verily I say unto you, for this end have I come into the world, that I may put away all blood offering and the eating of flesh of the beasts and the birds that are slain by men. In the beginning God gave to all, the fruits of the trees, and the seeds, and the herbs, for food; but those who love themselves more than God, or their fellows corrupted their ways and brought diseases into their bodies, and filled their loves with lust and violence.” “Yea I am in all creatures and all creatures are in me.”

“The son of man cometh eating and drinking the fruits of the earth, and the milk of the flock, and the fruits of the vine.”

“Let your food consist of rich growing grain from the distant hills, fresh fruit and nuts from trees, and the things you plant, for these are nourished by the soil of the Earth………grind your grain into fine meal, that it may be mingled with the warm milk of the ewe, or mixed with water from the flowing river and made into fine cakes……bake them on hot stones in the noonday sun”. “You shall come to dwell in the Garden of Eden as it was in the beginning.”

Jesus Christ also provided us with additional commandments to those issues by Moses. They included, “Ye shall not take away the life of any creature for your pleasure, not for your profit, nor yet torment it” and “Ye shall not eat flesh, nor drink the blood of any slaughtered creature, nor yet anything that bringeth disorder to your health and senses”.

In conclusion it is evident that many of the Ancient Greeks and Jesus Christ did not eat meat and I believe we were not intended to eat flesh. I believe that religion and the controllers guided us to eat meat for their own personal gain. They gain great financial profits from our illness. Additionally, I believe religion kept these teachings hidden because they did not want us to ascend to 5D; Christ Consciousness, thereby keeping us under their permanent control. Again, for their own personal gains including financial.
