I eat chicken & fish. Gave up red meat.

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.

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?

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.

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?
