A basic requirement for Ascension.

The tone of Honor must be embodied fully.
There is no honor in the farming/caging/slavery of the animal realms
There is no honor in the killing and eating the flesh of realms who are  equal in every way to the human realm.
Dead flesh has no chi, no information and has a death hormone that gives the body incorrect messages.

Plants have given agreements to assist humans ascension by ingesting them, with honor.

If one cannot wean themselves from flesh (land or aquatic) the possible cause for this is karma.
Meat can also be considered an addiction, if it is difficult to relinquish, this is also karmic.
