How spiritual are you really?
I was at home last night having all kinds of random thoughts and one grabbed my attention more than the others, so I stuck with it. So before I get into the real meaning of this blog I just wanted to break down spirituality.
Spirit – This is the non physical part of anything that is living, which gives it life (the soul).
I hope that clears up spirituality a little bit, so you’ll really understand where I’m coming from with this blog. Now I can pose the question….
How spiritual is it that you’re a part of another living creatures spirit (soul) being sacrificed unnecessarily for you to consume?
It doesn’t matter if its free range, grass fed, quickly, slowly or whatever. The fact of the matter is that animals lives are being taken away from them prematurely.
I used to eat all meat and animal products you could think of lol so I feel its right that I share my journey with you. My journey started around 7 years ago when I first started researching a few things.
The first thing I gave up was pork, then it was cows milk, then I reduced my red meat intake to 1 day a week, then I started having vegetarian weekends, then I flipped it to vegetarian weekdays and meat on the weekends. These transitions ran from 2009-2015. Then finally in April 2015 I went full vegetarian and then June 2015 I went full Vegan… BUT I’m not a vegan anymore. I’m just Ash :) and even though my diet is 99% vegan based I will eat fish maybe once every 1 or 2 months but that’s it. So that’s my journey And its still continuing.
Also I’v noticed how quick people were to tell me I’m not a vegan for my lapse in consuming fish on the rare occasions. So keep your name/title of being vegan 😌✋
Would you say a christian isn’t a christian or a muslim isn’t a muslim for not following one of the commandments once in a while??
Just let that sink in.
This blog isn’t to judge anyone who eats animals, or to tell you you’re not spiritual if you do eat them. At the end of the day to each his own. The point of this is to simply raise a level awareness that if you are on this spiritual journey then you should be constantly trying to take steps to that level of oneness in all areas of your life, to truly take that holistic approach.
I just hope this has given you a knew perspective of your journey and maybe even a few steps to take.
