Foods that are spiritualized are just the tip of the iceberg


So, when plant-based foods are offered to God and accepted by Him, all the karma from the killing of the fruits, vegetables, seeds and grains are removed from your actions and that’s the tip of the iceberg.

In life, we are faced with many other qualities, be they good or bad, and all created by God.

We are faced with intelligence, knowledge, freedom from doubt and delusion, forgiveness, self-control and calmness, pleasure and pain, birth, death, fear and fearlessness, nonviolence, equanimity, austerity, fame and infamy, and all are created by Him.

Putting all these into proper perspective is not that easy. So, let’s take them one at a time.


This refers to the power of analyzing things in their proper perspective.


This refers to understanding what is spiritual and what is matter.  Having a college degree pertains only to matter and has no reference to spirituality because there is never education about spirituality and only material elements and bodily needs, making that obtained knowledge incomplete.


This can only be achieved when one is not hesitant to understand transcendental philosophy, which leads to not accepting things blindly and accepting with care and caution.


Forgiveness takes practice by excusing the minor offenses of others.


This means that facts should be presented as they are for the benefits of others and should not be misrepresented.  According to social conventions, it is said that one can speak the truth when it’s comfortable for others to hear. The reality is that truthfulness should be spoken in a straight and forward way, so that others will understand actually what the facts are. So, if someone is a thief and people are warned of this, that is truth.  Truthfulness demands that the facts be presented as they are for the benefits of others.


For self-control, the senses should not be used for unnecessary personal enjoyment. There is no prohibition against meeting the proper needs of the senses, but unnecessary sense gratification is detrimental for spiritual advancement and the mind should remain calm. Using your mind to ponder over earning money is a misuse of the thinking power. The power of thought should be developed is association with those that are authorities in the scriptures, saintly persons and spiritual masters.


Pleasure or happiness should always be in that which is favorable for the cultivation of spiritual knowledge or God consciousness.  And, that which is painful or causes distress is not at all favorable for God consciousness.


It only relates to the body in the material world, which is temporary and not to the soul, which is eternal.


With fear, you worry about the future. But, if you are on a spiritual  platform and know that when you leave the body you inhabit you will go back to the spiritual world you came from, why would that be fearful? Fear is caused by our absorption in the temporary illusory energy. But, fearlessness is only possible for one absorbed in God consciousness.


Nonviolence means that one should not do anything which will put others into misery or confusion. The material activities that are promised by so many politicians, sociologists, philanthropists, etc., do not produce very good results because they they have no transcendental or spiritual vision. We, in the human form, are meant for spiritual realization so we can go back where we came from and are the only form that bears karma.    


Equanimity refers to freedom from attachment and or a strong dislike. In the material world it is better to be detached and remain neutral. The only true and sincere attachment is to God.

Once that happens, how can there be detachment?


One should not be in a state of mind to gather more material goods. One should be satisfied with whatever is obtained by the mercy of God.  If not, frustration will become rampant.


Spiritually, real fame occurs when a person develops true and sincere love for God. Without that, infamy takes over and the alleged “fame” is temporary.

All this explains the difference between material and spiritual life. Imagine all the successful and wealthy people that committed suicide and how their lives would have changed had they developed a true love for God.

When we, the spirt soul, leave our bodies we are subject to two reactions. Being a materialist would bring an unfortunate rebirth into another material form and not the human form for a long, long time. Why? because rebirth is based upon karma. Being a materialist invokes enormous karma.

Just think about leaving your body and taking rebirth in an ant body. Connecting with God guarantees to responses after leaving the body. One is going to the spiritual world and the other is taking rebirth in a human form in a family that is solid with God, which allows you to pick up where you left off had you not been solid in your attachment to Him.

Right now, you are probably saying or thinking that I am so full pf shit. My road wasn’t an easy one but I wouldn’t change it for anything.

There is a simple mantra to recite that will constantly connect you to Him It is;

Gopala Govinda Rama Madana-Mohana. In English is means, “Dear Lord, please engage me in Your loving service”.

Please remember, when you offer your plant-based foods to Him, and even cooked to death dairy, He will accept it and all the karma associated with the killing of the fruits, vegetables, grains and seeds will be removed by Him. Then, you will have to consider your everyday actions to not encounter any other bad karma.

Short and sweet: Be IN the world, but not OF the world!

Bhagavad Gita As-It Is

The Nectar of Devotion

Hesh Goldstein
When I was a kid, if I were told that I'd be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would've thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30's.

Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.

After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a "plastic" community would be an understatement.

Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.

I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, " let's become vegetarians". I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, "okay"! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.

So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, "The Little Kitchen".

Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.

I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I'll elaborate on that in a minute.

But right now, back to "The Little Kitchen". Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.

The owner said to me, "Let's make a deal. You do our tax return and we'll feed you as well". So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.

But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, "Hawaii". Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called," Mr. Natural's". I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at "Mr. Natural's." To make a long story short, that's exactly what happened.

So, I'm working at "Mr. Natural's" and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle - it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka'anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.

Since I was the new guy, and didn't really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that's exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.

I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.

Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I'm asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn't thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, "You expected anything less"? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, 'enchilada's at "Natural's" tonight'. I never had to cook anything else.

A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That's when they found out I was an accountant and "Down to Earth" was born. "Down to Earth" became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.

In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD's that would call in asking for my credentials.

My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.

I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii's premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She said," If you want to be with me you've got to stop working on naked women". So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.

Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a "chicken" or "egg" or "fish" or "pig" or "cow" was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.

The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.

Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.
