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,
