30 Bananas a Day!

Lifetime hunter dies after going 811!

I grew up in a hunting family and thought that that was normal way of life.  It was so exciting to go hunting and fishing with my Uncle Joe, I loved spending countless hours with him in the outdoors.  He taught me so many things, like how to shoot guns, how to track animals, how to tie fishing knots, etc.  I can still remember when I made my first kill...my heart was beating hard and my body started to shake with excitement, it was a mad rush for sure and I wanted to experience it again and again, and I did.  

After is was diagnosed with colitis, witch is a major bowel disease, I was blessed to learn that I could CURE that horrible disease simply by changing my diet to fruits and vegetables.  I took the plunge two and half years ago and never looked back.  My health steadily improved as I stuck to this lifestyle and I still hunted with my Uncle.  After being in this diet a while I realized that the killing was yet another addiction.  The addiction to the adrenalin rush.  Funny thing happened this hunting season, and that was I had and have no desire to kill anything ever again!

This fruity lifestyle had killed the hunter in me, and now I'm free to truly love my animal friends.  I want to thank all of you for helping me make this transition in my life.  My new found love now is gardening and I get more satisfaction from my healing friend plants than I ever did hunting.  I feel so much more connected now and I don't have that nagging guilt from all the killing that I've done.  Now I just have to deal with the possible karma.

Blessings to you all, I love you,

I don't really buy into all that karma stuff, however, that being said, I did suffer greatly as a direct result of eating meat and the like for all those years, and I believe that was the so called bad karma.  

By the way folks, the colitis is healed as a result of the good things that I've put into my body and I'd say that is good karma.

Fruits & veggies can heal our bodies and soul.

Cruelty-free living is the best way to live!

congratulations. I don't know you, but I'm really really really excited and happy for you. it takes a really strong person to put away past conceptions about (well, anything really) lifestyles and look for the truth. 

you're proof that people CAN change and aren't blind. thank you!!!

Hey Ryan, very well put.  After eating about 15,000 bananas in the last two plus years, I'd say that the blood of the fruit is coursing within me and purifying my blood for sure, on a physical level.  The transformations that I've experienced on this lifestyle seem like miracles.  However, I'm coming to realize that it's my birth right to live in peace, inside and outside.  Thanks.  

P,S. unfortunately though my uncle doesn't speak to me anymore, he thinks I've lost my mind, and I did, witch is fortunate for me.

Well done for having the open-mindedness and lack of pride to accept your change :) It's always really cheering to here of former hunters and children of hunters becoming vegan. It's also interesting to hear the psychology of hunters and why they do what they do, because to everyone else it seems like shocking and perverse behaviour and is so hard to understand. 

I noticed that people who only eat plants for whatever reason usually end up being vegan for the moral reasons after their mind's have cleared. To be a necrotarian you have to shut down parts of your understanding and perform all kinds of mental, logical gymnastics to make it feel acceptable. Once you've cleared that out, everything seems so simple.

Don't worry about karma - it is not a system of punishments and rewards, it's just the natural consequences of ones principle's and actions. There is no punishment in this universe. When humans  punish someone, all we do is prevent them from releasing their bad karma i.e. realising the error of their ways. Punishment is not constructive and is a human invention. But we can always give someone "good" karma. 

@Ryan - I totally agree :)

Yeah, I did the crime and I'm willing to own up to it, just hope there is a thing called grace : )
