A group for those people who live or want to live healthy, wisely, being aware of what they eat by saving the animals, the environment and their body. Why are you a Vegetarian?
One Mouthful of Delicious Sauerkraut = 1 Bottle of Probiotics!?
I'm a firm believe in probiotics and is why I make kefir or sauerkraut. I just read a really great article about the benefits of sauerkraut and wanted to share it with you. For those who've never made sauerkraut there is also a video showing you exactly how to make it. I'd also like to add that my favorite kraut is pineapple sauerkraut...it's different and absolutely delicious and easy to make. You can make kraut with any vegetables you have on hand...your imagination is your only limit.One…Read more…
Adama Head Priest of Telos says that you only have a few years to change and finally it will be a case of either SHAPE UP OR SHIP OUT. Namaste
The intention is what matters,... and it would botter me if I am bottering others *wink* (maybe I should work on that, or maybe that attitude is my strength... hmmm...)
So, where are all that marvelous recipes?
There are so many ways to express planetary change, and being vegetarian is one of them, but not unique.
If being "flexible" does not bother you, that's what matters!
The interior will is the most important, only that I wanted to make clear in my message.
it is not perfect, but it is a movement to a better way... an improvement... a softly manner to show it is doable to my environment, in the hope that my example grudually might change them too, if they feel like it... not because I force them to, but because they want too as well... so to keep some balances... I am flexible... that is the way I feel best, in the best harmony with myself AND the nonvegetarians around me...
and... in non-judging them... it's true that I don't need to judge myself... I am confident in my choice at this moment in time... and I know that I won't regret it later, cause I know why I am making this choice for flexibility...
and Ravitiello, I am living the change I want to see happening in the world - if I would feel forced to be vegetarian, it wouldn't be the same... being convinced of being vegetarian is worth a lot more... so I am patiently waiting for that time when everyone is vegetarian... and I am doing what I can without forcing others - YES to encouraging, NO to bad feelings and enforcing !
The vedic scriptures gives directions for people in different stages of spiritual evolution.
Those highly evolved and seeking advancement are recommended to follow certain principles, one of which being non-violence (ahimsa), which includes being vegetarian.
Those on the lower stages of human evolution, that are addicted/accustomed to lower modes of nature, such as animal killing/eating, are prescribed a different set of principles that allow them some freedom to indulge in their activities whilst simultaneously encouraging them to raise their standards.
Actions within the field of principles prescribed for a particular persons stage carries less karma and eventually lead to purer states of being.
These prescribed principles are not limited to food ingestion, but cover most aspects of life; politics, warfare, family, work, trade, meditation, religion, etc.
But at every stage, the highest principles are recommended and we're encouraged to raise our standards to the optimum in this very lifetime. =)
The way I see it, God doesn't punish or judge us for such activities. It's simply that we pollute ourselves.
Bhagavad Gita: 5.14-16
The embodied spirit, master of the city of his body, does not create activities, nor does he induce people to act, nor does he create the fruits of action. All this is enacted by the modes of material nature.
Nor does the Supreme Lord assume anyone's sinful or pious activities. Embodied beings, however, are bewildered because of the ignorance which covers their real knowledge.
When, however, one is enlightened with the knowledge by which nescience is destroyed, then his knowledge reveals everything, as the sun lights up everything in the daytime.
Adama Head Priest of Telos says we do not look at your physical bodies, nor the nice suit you wear, nor the wealth you have accumulated, nor the high position you hold but we being on higher dimension look at how much light you have within yourselves which depends on your Karmas. Namaste
"Do not judge, or you too will be judged."
We should work on our sins and failings, if we start thinking for people mistakes, they gonna become ours!
Be tolerant with the limitations of others is positive, but you must respect yourself! It is a choice! When you choose yourself, choose your divinity within, and so the universe opens in new perspectives. We have a duty to respect ourselves, it is the first step toward change. If you doesn't live the change, how can you believe in it?
"We must be the change we wish to see in the world." - Mahatma Gandhi.
