Vegetarian, to be or not to be?
Dreads and Diets
I just started thinking the same thing and over the past few months I went through a little bit of a progress....at the end of august i gave up all pork and pig products. At first this was difficult and bacon just looked soo enticing but since I really got completely over. Then about 3 weeks ago i finally had that aha moment where I gave up all red meat... So as of now I am still eating white meat like chicken or turkey and fish but i am eating vegetarian as often as possible...ultimately by gradually giving things up i have been able to get over the idea of pig say altogether, i dont feel any desire for it at all. Also i don't feel as if I'm forcing anything, when it became natural that i stop eating red meat i did. I plan on doing the same for chicken and turkey when the time is right i will know and stop and act accordingly. As much as I am an animal lover and all that the benefits spiritually of not eating meat have been much greater in the areas of discipline and getting away from indulgent desires. While the animal arguments are all very important, you will find yourself growing spiritually in the process in a fashion that may be different than you expected.Anyway my advice is not to force full vegetarianism all at once IF you arent ready. Because ultimately you'll end up not liking it and giving up. Embrace change as it takes you, if you feel wrong about something don't do it and eventually it will follow that your desire for that thing wanes as well.Hope this was helpful
