It is sad to see such little interest in a book like this, and such strong interest in so many other matters that are honestly far more trivial. Have our priorities become twisted? We hear depressing stories on the media everyday, but most of these are issues that we can do next to nothing, or nothing about. This subject *is something we can help with enormously, but it is not discussed. Please check out the book, if you can.
It may be hard to accept for a lot of people and seem like an extreme statement at first, but the reality really is that *if we do not wish to directly support serious animal abuse with our dollar vote, then we would need to choose to live a vegan lifestyle. And yes, this would need to be vegan, not vegetarian only, or supporting local, small scale animal farms rather than factory farms. Products do not magically appear on the shelf. The actions required to make them are directly supported and actually *only possible through the money given by the consumer. So many are deeply deceived into believing that animal based foods and even other animal products can be brought to us humanely, and without such abuse. This is simply not true. This book gives great advice on how anyone can go vegan and stay vegan, and also properly plan out a raw vegan diet if they wish. It is not full of horrific details about slaughterhouses. It is also very easy to understand, and in my opinion, something that many would enjoy reading.
Most people are likely unaware that the #1 demand for oil usage on this planet is actually animal agriculture. This is dramatically higher then the demand from plant based agriculture alone, with the difference between the two being almost incomparable. The oil industry is actually a major impact on social and political instability, and the demand for oil is actually one of the number one influencing factors of war. Besides the direct physical impact of animal agriculture on such issues, we seem to think that we can continue to commit unnecessary and very real violence, and have peace at the same time. We seem to think peace for those who share our own physical form is the only kind of peace that is important enough to focus on, and to continue to violate and abuse other sentient beings when there is no true need, is a welcome energy in a world that strives to move toward eliminating unnecessary harm to others. That is a really a quite unhealthy viewpoint, and actually does not even benefit us. To say the least; animal product consumption is a very significant contributor to Heart Disease, Diabetes, Obesity and to a slight lesser extent, Cancer, while the health benefits of a well planned vegan diet are enormous and backed with a great deal of peer reviewed medical studies.
So many are unaware of how much of a difference we can all make by adopting a vegan way of living, and how much direct impact on harm to the planet and suffering for other sentient beings we can avoid by doing so. This book is a beautiful message that encourages the healing of our world and of individuals, non violence, and how embracing the truth and holding a greater love and compassion for others can improve our own lives. So many books have talked about world peace and moving towards a kinder way. This book is unique, in that it is clear about not leaving our fellow sentient earthlings out of this goal, and makes the point strongly about how we can help with this. Thank you so much to Michael Lanfield for all that he is doing to help get this message out to the world!!!*

In the introduction, the author, Michael Lanfield, says, “This book is not about health, nutrition or new age spirituality, but rather words of wisdom that will reawaken love into our lives and view the world in a whole new perspective.” I would also add that this book is also not merely about veganism, although the importance of veganism is stressed from time to time. ‘The Lost Love’ is about the “missing piece” as the author calls it, one that “can bring about significant changes that raise the collective consciousness on our planet.”
As a vegan, I did not expect much new information about veganism as I do not need any convincing about the need to stop killing and enslaving our fellow animals. But still I am glad I listened to this audio book read by the author, with relaxing, unobtrusive and well-chosen background music. The author’s insights and ideas come as much needed reminders. I am so glad to find that there are people who would dare to dream about a beautiful future where all can live in peace, happiness and dignity, without being tied down by the need to be “practical.” Our journey from here to there may necessarily involve many practical steps, but if all our thinking is going to be limited by what seems practical today, we would be doing a great disservice to ourselves and to future generations for not daring to dream.
When we dream or envision a future world, I feel it is extremely important to do so from a place that is largely free of our little egos. Our egos include our biases, addictions and fears. Yes, we need to confront the reality around us, but any real, lasting solution towards a world where all can live in peace and dignity will have to come from a spiritual POV. “Spirituality” here merely refers to an understanding of the basic connected nature of us all. It is our ego that creates the illusion of separateness and that is at the root of all our problems.
Integrating spirituality with our rational mind is urgently required in my view, and I feel that the author Michael Lanfield does a great job at reminding us in his own way. Our ideas have a much greater chance of converging in the same overall direction when we are not driven by selfishness, greed and fear. Veganism is merely one step along this direction, but a very essential step.
I was also convinced to some extent by the author about the need to try fruitarianism. Yes, there are some practical difficulties due to geographical constraints.
The author mentions moving to tropical regions. I feel this may happen in the future after the total human population stablizes and starts decreasing. Right now, I would prefer that the people in tropical regions are first left to live their own lives free of interference and control by more powerful countries, mostly in temperate and colder climates, with their military and manipulative economic and “trade” arrangements and with a greedy, violent past. I would like these countries to be exploited for their biodiversity using unfair trad arrangements. Wherever people move to, they should do so with respect and with the intention of contributing to the well-being of the local people, and not just because they got bored with their home country. But this is my “practical” mind talking, viewing today’s reality. It is okay to dream about the future, though.
We should not be afraid to talk about love. The more people who would dare to dream the faster we can get to a truly better, peaceful and compassionate world. This is especially true for those who are already vegans. We should not approach the question of ethics from a purely intellectual POV. That would mean we are still driven by our ego, even though we have taken the first step towards a more compassionate and peaceful world. If we want to accelerate this transition worldwide, I am convinced that we have to become mindful of the way our ego works and try to be free of our ego by understanding and realizing the spiritual ‘Oneness’ of all. And to that extent, this book contains many insights, ideas and reminders. I look forward to reading Michael Lanfield’s future works as he grows deeper in his wisdom.
