…For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke of a letter shall pass from the LAW, until all is accomplished! … whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 5:17-19 NASB
We follow The Way of Yeshua – the Northern Essene – The Nazarite – the Nazorean – who come from the line of Joseph, the first “Nazar” נְזִ֥יר (nə-zîr) distinguished tribe. We learn from the “Red Letters” of Yashua and abstain from the conflicting statements made by Saul-Paul. We also learn from many other divinely inspired and wise human written books and texts. We follow the PRE-Noah, Genesis Garden of Eden Diet. This is NOT a strict vegan diet. It allows raw honey, pasture-raised eggs and raw goat milk products to those who wish to imbibe. Animal kinship and stewardship is part of our mission. As we believe humans were made fruitarian in G*D’s image as per Genesis, we simply do not sacrifice blood for our mortal carnal survival.
Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; and to every animal of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to everything that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so.
Genesis 1:29-30 NASB
And we encourage life-giving fruits:
Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil; and now, he might reach out with his hand, and take fruit also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”
Genesis 3:22 NASB
All of the people in the Bible Up until Noah’s time were fruitarian. The post-Noah Diet (which we do NOT follow) includes animal flesh. BUT just because G*D said it was okay, does not mean we are mandated to eat this way:
The fear of you and the terror of you will be on every animal of the earth and on every bird of the sky; on everything that crawls on the ground, and on all the fish of the sea. They are handed over to you. Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I have given everything to you, as I gave the green plant. But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.”
Genesis 9:2-4 NASB
We innerstand that meat consumption is a difficult habit to unhook from. It is ingrained in our culture and shared emotional memory. We become addicted to the salt and fat of the blood. If one is still eating meat, we suggest that they follow Kosher-Halal-Mosaic Law from Leviticus 11 which details the Laws about Animals for Food (in addition to mind-altering substances). If you are under the belief that you require animal flesh to thrive, we request that you release that ‘belief’ for a year or two before attempting to join our community. To assist you in your transition, we suggest you might treat animal flesh as a seasonal ceremonial meal only using meat raised with humane animal husbandry techniques or creatures that you have personally slaughtered and butchered, so you can experience the blood and trauma on a visceral level.
…Do not drink wine or strong drink… it is a permanent statute throughout your generations—and to make a distinction between the holy and the profane, and between the unclean and the clean, and so as to teach the sons of Israel all the statutes which the LORD has spoken to them through Moses.”
Leviticus 10 NASB
The Four Agreements
These agreements summarize our approach to handling conflicts.
- Be Impeccable with your Word:
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.
- Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
- Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
- Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
- Be Impeccable with your Word:
