Yoga & Vegetarianism

18 Jun

The fact that a belief or a behavior is long-held does not make it inherently just, or even right. Consider for example, the fact that men have been raping women for thousands of years. Does this mean that such behavior is normal and should be allowed to continue? We are fortunate enough to live in an era in which human beings have come to recognize rape as a crime. A yogi investigates all long-standing habits and behaviors, even they have been seemingly in place forever, and and asks: « Is this activity necessary now? Does it bring me or the world closer to enlightenment or peace?  – Sharon Gannon , Excerpt from Yoga & Vegetarianism

    My friend and I (both vegan) had a good conversation along these lines yesterday (incidentally after a yoga session Haha).

    As a society we get stuck in habits, a lot of them unhealthy ones. But not many people actually take a step back and think about what’s really going on and whether their actions are serving them.

    Thanks for sharing!
