Gave up red meat. [/quote] I'm afraid that you are trying to make yourself feel good by getting rid of red meat, but ALL meat is the issue. Most will slam me for even saying this, but chicken and fish are spiritual beings just like us. So eating any animal is wrong, in my view. I have been a vegetarian for over 10 years now. No, I'm not down to "skin and bones". Yes, I'm much healthier than I used to be. I try to eat vegan, but I love cheese too much. I don't believe in the way chickens (eggs) and cows (milk, cheese) are raised and enslaved. Peace [/quote] Umm no I was simply makng an honest admission about what meat I eat. Are you of the opinion that trees & plants are 'spiritless'? Why would plants respond to emotion and music if they weren't sentient? Why is our entire ecosystem designed around the consumption of living things? Why is the stability of the eco-system designed to be contingent on population control and BALANCE? Is it some how 'wrong' when the animals consume one another, or do we say it's natural and instinctual? Why when humans are entered into the equation does it become an issue of morals and no longer an issue of being natural and instinctual? [/quote] I have no desire to debate you concerning the whether it is ok to eat animals because we also eat plants. Yes, I believe that ALL living things are spiritual beings. I just consider some spiritual beings at a different levels of spiritual development than others. Enough said there about that. We are here to learn to overcome our instinctual drives and to begin to become more advanced beings that no longer are controlled by our instincts, but by our hearts. The choice is yours. [/quote] So I guess the moral is that it's okay to consume some sentient, spirit-filled 'beings' but not others? Some sort of spiritual pecking order, right? [/quote] Yes. Are you baiting me here? Decide for yourself. [/quote] Asking important questions relevant to the discussion is baiting? :1dunno1: [color=red][b] It depends on the reason for asking the question, correct? I was questioning your reason...[/b][/color] How do animals evolve spiritually if they consume one another? [color=red][b] Each type of "animal" is on their own unique ascension path and have unique things to learn at their unique level.[/b][/color] How did humans evolve spiritually while also consuming meat? [color=red][b]They have progressed as far as possible while still eating meat. The next step will require many changes for their continued growth. One is to no longer follow their animalistic instincts and to no longer eat their brothers and sisters...[/b][/color] [/quote] [/quote] I like to pose questions that cause both myself and others to think about subject matters from different perspectives or in a different light than what is being discussed. It's valuable for me and I would hope for others, whether they end up confirming their own convictions or considering varying perspectives. I'm not trying to change anyone's mind. Asking questions is the best way to figure out how you feel and grow awareness. Regarding no longer following animalistic instincts. Should that also carry over into the urge/desire to reproduce and engage in sexual gratification? Do we need to give that up as well to evolve? :hmm: [/quote]
