Hi PT, My mom (a social worker) always said to me, "do not judge the ragged person standing on the corner selling a streetwise newspaper for a dollar", "for all anyone really knows, that mans entire family could have just been killed in a plane crash"
(meaning do not judge until you KNOW ALL the facts and the WHOLE picture)
I like the concept of "food as global uniting energetics". If we were all angels sitting atop mountains or sitting in heaven looking at earth SEEING THE WHOLE ENERGETIC GLOBAL PICTURE, we may have a different perspective. I read in dr. s. modi's work, Remarkable Healings, that "the veil" has been lifted and many can now easily and clearly see: past lives of self and others, heaven angels, earth humans, and hell demons (lost souls in darkness), clearly because "the veils have been lifted due to the collective past good work of so many good people, souls on earth and in heaven, past and present".
We indeed are living in exciting and interesting times.
