Respectable gentleman, in regard to your question, allow me to tell you with completely dazzling clarity that everybody is free to feed themselves as they please. There exist unbearable vegetarians who have created a religion out of food, likewise there exist upon the Earth bloody, carnivorous, near cannibals, who have also destroyed their organism. So, there are variety of nonsensicalities in this life. Thus regarding disequilibrium, everybody is guilty, since everyone violates the law of the scales, and the outcome of any violation is not pleasant.
However, it is not irrelevant to repeat that everyone is free to nourish themselves as they please. Nevertheless, we must not forget the law. If we destroy our bodies, we will have to endure the consequences. Regardless, it is convenient to specify that many vegetarians exist within the abysses. However, none of them suffer there because of the crime of eating vegetables, but because of many other causes and motives. Again, about nutritional matters, let everybody eat whatever they please. What is important, I repeat, is not to break the law, and that is all.

From Social Transformation of Humanity:

The Law of the Reciprocal Nourishment of every existing thing exists in the world. The purpose of our lives is to supply maintenance to something big or small in the world. This law was known by ancient sages as the process of the Cosmic Common Trogoautoegocrat.

Wars exist due to fact that we do not know how to intelligently manipulate this great Law of the Reciprocal Nourishment of every existing thing.

Indeed, it is impossible to handle this great law as long as we continue to have within our psyche all of those psychological factors that produce war.

Nature has given us life, yet we have to pay Mother Nature a very high price for it. We nourish ourselves with Nature, yet Nature nourishes Herself with us.

Ancient Asian sages discovered within the psyche of every individual two sacred substances which they denominated Abrustdonis and Helkdonis.

The ancient sages stated that by intelligently transmuting these two metaphysical substances the sacred vivifying substance named Askokin is liberated.

Askokin is the substance with which this Great Nature is nourished. So, Mother Nature gives us life, yet She collects a very high price for it. She demands Askokin in exchange, yet if we do not voluntarily give this Askokin to her, then She snatches it by force, by means of great wars.

Nevertheless, if within every one of us the destructive factors that produce war did not exist, then Mother Nature would not need to utilize such a destructive system in order to snatch Her sacred nourishment through it.

By dissolving the psychological “I,” a permanent center of illuminated Consciousness is established within us, and then, we liberate the sacred Askokin by means of upright thought, upright feeling and upright action.

Unfortunately, modern politicians do not accept these concepts from the ancient sages and the scientific ignoramuses from this epoch of wiseacres are like the donkey that believes in the grass only because it can see it.

The UN and the antiquated Geneva Convention have become failures related with the well-known problem of peace.

The UN, the organization for peace, wages wars and bombs defenseless cities, as was demonstrated in the African Congo. It is frightfully ludicrous to make wars in the name of peace.

Some few centuries ago, a type of UN or Geneva Convention was founded based on very good intentions in the Asian city of Mousolopolis.

The phrase of that society was: "The Earth is equally free for everyone."

That society was formed by an assembly of illuminated sages; all of them formed a council of venerable elders.

However, that society was dissolved when a certain philosopher exposed the problem of the Law of the Reciprocal Nourishment of every existing thing.

It was at that time when, before dissolving that august society, the system of animal sacrifices was established, in order to liberate the so-essential sacred Askokin for Nature.

The Askokin of animals became the magnificent food for Nature; the Askokin of animals was then liberated through the great sacrifices to the Gods.

That system succeeded; thus, their wars ceased, and Asia enjoyed much peace for a long period of time.

Later on, a Mohammedan Dervish named Assadulla Ibrahim Ogly, filled with love towards animals, pronounced himself against these sacrifices in all of Asia. It was then that the First World War exploded.

So, when Nature was deprived of the Askokin of animals, She then turned to War in order to snatch from us her nourishment.

We, Gnostics, are not in favor of animal sacrifices. But we are sure that only by means of the dissolution of our psychological “I” (our psychological animals) can liberate the sacred Askokin that Nature needs for Her nourishment.

Does this mean that Gnostics are vegetarians?
