What Veganism Means To Me
Someone posted on Twitter “Veganism isn’t about being green. It’s not about being spiritual. It’s not about being healthy. It’s about the animals.” My opinion is being vegan is about the heart, having love & compassion for all living beings. It’s about the planet and lessening our impact on it, it’s especially for me about the spirit and connectedness to all things, it’s about being healthy so I can perform my function in this lifetime.
Of course it’s about the animals too. But, if we continue to be judgmental and hateful to others that is what we’ll continue to manifest in the world. We reap what we sow. This is a Universal law that never changes. We might not understand karma or you might not even believe it, but it’s all around us. Our thoughts, actions, and reactions create the world around us. The only way to change the things that disturb us is to change what’s inside of us. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Change begins when you change your own heart. That is the only way to see True change. We need to take a look inside and stop looking outside for the answers.
