I’ve been a Vegetarian for 10 months now. As a Pantheist, I believe all life is interconnected, all life is kin and all life deserves respect. Pantheism means to be reverent toward and hold nature sacred. Some may argue that we should eat meat because the animal kingdom includes meat eating – but it does so because some animals do not know any different and have no other options for meeting their dietary needs. For humans this is not the case – we can make a choice! It is possible to live a full and healthy life on either a vegetarian or vegan diet. In fact, its much healthier than eating a meat based diet. Having been a Vegetarian for almost a year, I am considering going Vegan now as I research and learn more about the cruelty inflicted upon animals in the egg and dairy industries. I want to ensure that my life fits in with my values and I do all I can to show respect and reverence to Mother Nature.
Below is a video about Veganism. Have a watch and then consider whether how your life choices are guided by your values.
