If most people who claimed to be enlightened would have continued or would continue evolving in the degrees, every person would have a friend, a partner, a mate, a comrade, a helper to go to! But most people haven't really been enlightened in the pure sense of the word. Most of you haven't found that you are the light you've been looking for and that light is within and infinite! You are everywhere at the same time. You don't have to be confined to books, organizations, internet gurus, or terminologies, you just need to know and grow in yourself. I had a friend from high-school who talked the enlightened talk but one day he was honest to me when I questioned had he been serious or dedicated in the enlightenment and he said no. Basically he said, as I already knew, that he hadn't been serious and fully dedicated and that he would go back and forth with the worldly mentality or ignorance of the world and the enlightened! He had put off, in other words! - Joshua Aaron Guillory

In 1 Peter 2:1 when it talks about ''laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings'' the Greek word there for ''laying aside'' is ''apotithemi'' which can mean ''to make a way'' as in finding a way when there seems to not be one. And it also can mean ''to make out of'', to create from the hypocrisies, guile, envies, evil speakings and so forth. That is, to make good out of them or for good out of them. Also to ''make for one's use'', or for one's advantage in the truth - the lifestyle, defense or culmination thereof; or to ''lay aside for a later time'', which can represent wisdom of prevention or invention or discovery. And it can also mean to ''lay on'' or ''combine''. We can learn from these things and from people's hypocrisies and lies to better ourselves! And it also can mean to ''establish'' or to ''fit, fix or place in'' - to relativize those things into truth or for truth. - Joshua Aaron Guillory

To some degree, I admire all the spiritually enlightened teachers out there in the world. Whether they're meat-eaters, vegetarians, vegans, or sun-gazer-eaters, ha-ha, or eat nothing at all, I think the message of freeing people from their unfortunate mentalities and conditions is the main thing. And teaching men to accept fate and where they are and strive to get better [spirit, health, wealth, place] or make peace with the situation they're in, if they choose to stay in it! Whether you want to just live natural and content with the least and or you choose to live as much in harmony with nature and yet still enjoy the technologies and luxuries of expanded culture or industrialism, the idea is the be free and happy. I choose to live in harmony with nature and yet enjoy the expanded luxuries of nature. I just enjoy the man-made creations of nature - the wisdom of the gods or god-men to create a more efficient system but at the same time in harmony with nature. - Joshua Aaron Guillory

We have to be realistic in terms of people still eating meat and people becoming vegan and neither one trying to judge the other for their lives. At least when we can find a solution to preserve the animals and clone or create meat for those who feel they have to eat meat, which at that time financial reasons will not exist. Or some time further on! And vegans will be able to live more easily in their lifestyle in terms of numbers. No person who desires to be vegan will have to worry about the knowledge, money or resources to make it possible! I've lived enough vegetarian, vegan, and omnivorous to know that you don't lose your enlightenment for eating meat. In someways you could actually evolve beyond people who are vegetarian or vegan, and vice versa. As long as your intention is good and to be and get to the truth, you will always discover and manifest the truth in someway, in some degree, somehow! - Joshua Aaron Guillory

We must go through all levels of enlightenment! I'm so glad I went back to eating meat on my journey of enlightenment, by natural means of course, because it helped me be free of the prison of thinking that I would lose some part of my spirituality by doing so. When I was living as a vegetarian, because I was dwelling in houses with people who were eating meat and fussing and things of that nature, I used to get so mad at them sometimes for not being what I thought was spiritually higher. And although my desire is to be full vegan, or at least some period of time if not all times, or something lighter than that, I am free to understand and take the good out of everything for the spiritual purpose of world peace. I'm able to relate and not judge people for eating meat and so on! I stopped being a consistent vegetarian a few years back. I used to hate or be disgusted at the thought of ever again eating meat! - Joshua Aaron Guillory
