It is considered ‘wrong’ to kill another human being and it is ‘wrong’ to steal a towel from a hotel.

These 2 can’t possibly be equal so ‘sins’ must be weighed differently?

Conscious acts are weighed more heavily than unconscious acts. Either can result in some suffering non the less but with the appropriate karmic effect. Reap what you sow.

Did you know that there are 8.4 billion life forms on earth?
But only human beings are capable of distinguishing right from wrong. Animals are exempt from the karmic justice and don’t create new karma and don’t affect their future destiny. All sentient beings can feel effects of karma though, be it pleasure or pain.


Food choice is an action with consequence, so you could say that eating is karmic.  karma is basically ‘you reap what you sow’, so think about this: Is what you eat free from the involvement of creating pain, suffering and death by eating another creature?  By eating meat, fish, poultry, eggs etc you are reaping suffering caused by your choice.  Even if you didn’t kill it yourself, the flesh carries forward the energy of pain, fear and death into the food.  The energies in the flesh may be affecting your energy field.

If you do kill and prepare the flesh yourself, is it done with consciousness around it?  Like native Indians giving thanks to the animal for giving up it’s life force for their benefit.

Think about the food you eat.  Consider the cook who prepares your food?  Is that person happy or are they angry and despise their job?  Are they an addict?  Or are they giving off good vibes of love and positivity while cooking?

You are what you eat.
