I have been a vegetarian for a number of years now, and I also believe in the benefits of organics and a high raw diet.
Personally I feel, being a spiritually awake person and on the Druid path, that I am aware of the responsibilty I have in my actions, the choices I make have 'ripples on the pond', so to speak. By living an ethical life, being aware and responsible for my actions, and recognising the divinity that 'sparks' all creation, how could one live unconsciously eating and consuming those products that cause suffering unnecessarily.
It is my choice to be vegetarian, and I dont expect everyone to make my choices in life, but I do expect everyone to at least become aware of what they put into their bodies, and why, and the causes and outcomes of their choices. Then make your own decisions, as Druids, and as fellow creation, and intelligent beings with the capacity to reason and live responsibily.
We are not iron-age or ancient Druids, we are contempory Druids living modern-day lifestyles, living various degrees of harmony within the natural world, evolving consciously within higher consciousness, in a society that is technologically advanced and as Druids I feel we should borrow from the permaculturist term of appropriate-technology.
As Druids we project peace to all directions, shouldn't that peace extend to all living beings?
There's a famous quote that sugests that the state of humanity is reflected in the way we treat those of fur, feather, scale and claw. Just something to ponder on anyway.
... living by example... being the change I wish there to be in the world...
