Now we would give for these particularly that the diet should be
vegetarian. In doing so we would suggest that it should be understood that it is not the
difference that one discipline or another is better in the diet, except as found in the
heart of the individual and his purposes in the incarnation. That is, one may be given as
vegetarian, another may be given to eat meat. The differences then would be the type of
self, the type of work, the type of development and the level of development for the
particular lifetime and the purpose for the diet.
For we would find for those who are following the mystic paths and
would be developing along the lines of understanding within, that the vegetable diet
without the use of meat would be for the raising of levels of vibration. That is, the
taking of meat or sweets within the body would tend to bring those in spiritual
development back down toward the Earth plane, [or] that is, that there might be the
conversing with others on lower planes.
Now it is often found that for a teacher there must be the two extremes
within the diet. That is, there must be the taking of the high spiritual foods. There
should be the taking of the high spiritual foods. There should be the taking as well of
the earth-bound diet, or that which would bring the entity back onto the levels of those
whom he would teach.
Hence we find that the vegetarian diet is not given to all who
would develop spiritually, but [for] those who would separate themselves for the purpose
of the refinement of self, the refinement of this incarnation. That is, [to those
desiring] the release from earth in this incarnation, the finishing of the discipline in
this particular plane of manifestation, would be given the vegetarian diet.
