I'm an artist, a writer, and skilled vocalist that believes that one must not only have a healthy mind and body but a healthy spirit as well. So, somehow I was led here and found it to be exactly what I was looking for. As someone who believes all life is sentient, I am very happy to see this site exists. I often feel that people who do not eat meat are the ones who truly care about life as they, excuse me, we, eat plant life, which is sentient which accepts and understands what will happen to it someday.
Plants, unlike animals, accept life as though it were the wind, it comes and it goes and they understand that...they are taught that. The Trees commune with each other and tell their stories to the saplings so that they will understand and know not to fear their end and to instead embrace the life they lived. Not to mention they understand their roles as life-givers and give of themselves freely, without even a complaint or argument. That is why I believe that eating plants is better than eating animals any day, other than the obvious health benefits too.
Animals...they do not want such swift deaths nor can they accept them as plants do. They die in fear and pain under torturous methods. Chickens die at the Guillotine, which isn't used anymore on humans out of humane respect for their being, yet this is done none-the-less with a conical head-chopping device and that's the, "Humane," method apparently. What of Cows? Cows are slaughtered and put down and then hacked into many pieces and shipped. When have we ever done that to a human being without their consent in this modern age. And How about those Pigs, you know, the little guys that are supposed to be very similar to humans anatomically and socially or something like that? Pigs are corralled into special killing booths and unleash death cries as they are put to death through some machine that either crushes them or does some form of incision. Oh, not to mention they fatten all of these animals up with hormones usually and then they sell it to us so we can get big and fat off the same crap they put into the food, which degenerates the mind, the body, and the soul, making us impure in all aspects. Why do they harm the children? Yes, I believe that animals are children because they are learning as we are. Don't they know it only leads to pain and sorrow? Each and every day the world becomes worse from this and they justify themselves by saying if they stopped meat productivity the world would be in shambles, that if they stopped eating meat the market would be destroyed as we know it. This is a lie. If animals were eaten in moderation, or buried, as they should be out of respect, or left to the wilds, as they also should, then this world would be at balance once more.
-after removing my profile from here and walking my own path...
So I was stranded, without any social connection, diligently living the life of a free man in squalor. I lived on raw foods and for a time and even quit smoking marijuana for meditation (I am now drug free :D) and simply did so with a clear mind...until I lived with a meat eater. During this time I explained why she was the way she was and why she only gained weight. She was not interested in eating raw food like myself so I compromised and said I would eat cooked vegan...she agreed.
As time went on things were alright. I dealt with bed-bugs, constant assaults from her beliefs that this would not work, and even the pack of feral dogs from time to time. It was a life of poverty with few kind souls or caring friends but I was at peace with the spirits of nature, knowing that I would only find peace there; I'm an Animist.
I would often meditate, working to attain inner peace and after I could no longer take living with someone who thought you couldn't live on such a lifestyle. Funny thing is she actually lost quite a bit of weight. So I returned to my parents and have been here for the time being, planning my life and meditating.
