There is one thing that I don't understand for ages, why eating animals are being cruel, but eating plants are being merciful, since they are both lives?
First I have to state true that I'm a vegetarian, it is my taste so I'd not say I am mercy or compassion or whatsoever because I eat only vegetables, and I admit I'm killing the plant's life whilst I eat it in its growing day as I want to eat fresh. And I just don't understand why some vegetarians claim others will receive retribution or bad karma, becasue they kill and dishonour lives by eating meat (and their attitudes make me feel like they are looking forward to the retribution to come, I hope I was wrong though). Well, personally, I regrad this is more about attitude than what you eat, that is your attitude to the life that eaten by you.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to make things difficult, I just don't understand this since I was little, and I have actually make up several reasons for these people to explain themselves (only if they couldn't make up their own reasons).
Well, here you are ...
- plants have a lower quality life, they born for human to eat, and they are willing to be eaten ...
- plants have no blood, mean they won't feel pain, so this is the meaning mercy ...
- plants won't shout, mean they have no feeling, so it is okay to eat ...
- plants won't move, so in human's understanding, they are not resisted to be eat ...
- human not yet to know how to communicate with plants, as they have no way to know what plants think, it is okay to eat ...
- since we have PETA, but not yet to have PETP (People for the Ethical Treatment of Plants), so no one cares what you do to the plants ...
- human are big liars, and will make up whatever reasons to support themselves ...
Am I thinking too much?? Perhaps, but have you ever ask the plants, "do you want to be eaten by me?" I honestly believe they'll be scare when you putting them into your wide opened mouth, or crop them up with your sharp knife, becasue I'll be scare if I were them.
When I first time heard people said eating meat will bring you retribution or bad karma, I was very very little, and I think this is so unfair, since plants and animals are both lives, why I have to be punished becasue I like the taste of meat!!!!! What is the theory?! So I start to think what human can eat by not killing any kind of lives, and I couldn't think of any but mud!!! And that was becasue I not yet learn there is microorganism living in the soil, so later I think if human want to live mercifully, we would have to mantain our life by only breathing, as there is not yet evident show breathing will terminate any kind of life. However, if this is true, I don't know how to explain the awkward digestive system that everyone have.
I really don't know!!!!!
And you know what, many occultists/spiritualists suggest us to communicate with the food before you eat, if that was a biscuit, then ask rather the biscuit want to be eaten by you, will it honour your body, and if you receive an answer - YES, then thanks it for giving its life. I'm trying my best to do it, it is not something hard to do, but I always forgot when I am hungry, just now I ate a biscuit when I'm writing this blog, and I forgot to ask that poor little biscuit. So I'm going to ask the next biscuit, and I have to stop here.
It may sounds silly, but why not honour every food and life that you eat, as they benefit your body.
love and light,
nope. i have thought the same thing too many years ago. i have also thought its best not to eat anything if everything has live. what a dilemma. » renaye
