To those of you still clinging to an animal protein diet, there’s nothing to fear by going in that direction. Remember, it’s all what you’re used to. Once you’ve made a transition over to a vegetarian diet, vegan isn’t much farther down the road from there. Arseto wrote on this recently, and I thought it was some good food for thought.

The meaning of our self is not to be found in its separateness from God and others, but in the ceaseless realization of yoga, of union; not on the side of the canvas where it is blank, but on the side where the picture is being painted.           —  Rabindranath Tagore
