This will be the fourth year that I will be giving up meat for the entire lent period. I am not of any particular religion nor do I have a problem with any of them. I have friends that are: catholics, christians, buddhist, jewish, islamic, agnostics, atheist and have many other religion and spiritual beliefs.
I am very spiritual and believe in many different aspects of many religions. I do believe in many of the teaching of Christ and Buddha. I do not believe so much in the traditional Christian religious beliefs. The dogma and condemning of many of these religious institutions I do not feel are the way of God.
I think this year I will not return to the eating of animals. I always felt so good physically and mentally when eating this way.
I wish the best for those that are making sacrifices during this time. I would encourage those that want to better themselves to join in and better themselves during this time. If you believe or do not believe that is your choice, either way there are things we all can do to better ourselves. Doing it together gives us all more strength. I would also encourage the thought of creating lasting change for yourself rather then temporary sacrifice. Try changing the way you think and feel about your bad habits this will help you in making positive lasting change for yourself. The Best of Luck to All and God Bless!
