VEGETARIANISM & GRADUALITY
May 23, 2006 07:54 AM
Three or four decades ago this happened to a member of my family.
The issue seems to be the lack of graduality.
If one leaves meat slowly enough, in a very gradual way, reducing quantity and changing "heavier" meats to "lighter" meats, than the physical body has time enough to adapt itself.
As to me, I went gradual in 1980-81 and it was perfectly OK.
The need for graduality in abandoning meat is also a metaphor for the needed graduality in other things along the spiritual way.
A steady progress is gradual. A 10,000 walk is made step by step.
