Well, where do I start? This October 1st, it will make 3 years that I decided to go meatless. Let me tell ya’ll how this happened for me. It was the Last Super Moon of 2015 and I was at a near by park by my house, Meditating. I looked up and I asked out loud: What can I do next, to take my spiritual Journey to the next level. I heard a voice say: Start fasting and Stop eating Meat!
First of, I thought I was going crazy; because we have always been told to do not listen to the voices in your head, Right? After I was done conversing with my higher self, the next day I started fasting. I fasted for 30 days, no food, just tea and water until 7 PM every single day. People thought I was Muslim and I would just laugh because they would not understand my reasoning.
I had started a new job then, so it extra difficult to train, intake information; totally hungry. Everyone around me would eat and I was just there like, What the hell am I doing? Some days were more difficult than others. Another reason was that I suffered from terrible constipation, and I wanted to find a solution. I would be in so much pain, trying to use the bathroom; that I said to myself: It has to be a way to fix this problem I have without me having to take all these stool softening pills, laxatives and all these things that would not work.
In Retrospect, I met a wonderful woman while I worked knocking on doors selling energy; she was a vegan. That was earlier that summer. She would tell me all the wonderful things of not eating meat. So I would try it, here and there. But like I said, It was not until October that I went Cold turkey. When November came, I had detox my body so well by eating once a day; that all I ate was fruits, veggies and then I started learning about Quinoa and all the other Super Grains.
I am glad to say that my Constipation went away, and the way that I Felt Increased. I feel a lot lighter and I have developed a deeper connection to my environment, especially the animals. All life deserves to live. I do not judge people who eat as they want, I just tell people to try it and see how they feel. The most important thing you are going to need is discipline. Without discipline we really can not accomplish anything in life.
Take of Yourself and Each Other,
