  • I'm all for logical thinking,

    but some people simply connect with certain things. For those who connect with numbers it becomes frustrating and discouraging to explain what you naturally were able to avoid through intuition.

  • When I was in 5th grade...

    They use to administer those 100 question math tests; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We had three minutes to complete 100 questions, such as 5-2, 4+6, 5*4 and 8/2, etc. I was always top of the class in these tests and was able to complete 100 multiplication problems in about 1 minute 30 seconds. I was naturally good with numbers and they always made sense, without the hinderance of having to show how I arrived at the answers. My teacher was pleased that I "knew" the answer, not "how" I knew it. What the hell does it matter? I was never good with showing the work or the long version of arriving at the answer. I was just naturally good with numbers.

  • Mine...

    is in great condition. The details are nicely preserved, the words and date are bold and defined and even the details of the men (faces, attire, etc.) are well defined. The outer edge still has nice deep grooves. I think whoever go rid of this had no clue what they had.

  • long answer, haha

    When I became Vegan almost three years ago it was primarily due to watching a couple documentaries: Food Inc. and Earthlings. I was traumatized after watching Earthlings (narrated by Jaoquin Phoenix) and overnight went from Vegetarian to Vegan. My change was mainly centered around the cruelty of the industries that practice caged animal feeding operations (CAFO’s), force-feeding, abuse, separation of mother from child, etc. I was instantly changed and have never looked back. I think the impact of what I witnessed and then since have researched has cemented my belief in Veganism. I won’t lie and say it was always easy, in fact there were times when I didn’t feel as well as I wanted to. It took me some time to find the balance of what my body could adjust to in order to find benefit and peace and health. I take a few supplements daily, such as a Vitamin B-12 lozenge, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3 and a Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc supplement.

    My choice to implement Veganism was also hinged on the immediate medical issue I was having with my right elbow (this has been ongoing for 3 years and I discuss it in more recent threads) being restricted from extension and causing me a great deal of pain due to inflammation. So all in all my dietary changes were due to two issues.

    “I am also lactose-intolerant so I couldn't do dairy to get protein.” This is something I would like to address in its own light. Most people may not be aware that even though protein is pushed as something we must get mound of in order to operate and maintain health, the opposite it true. Protein requirements are complicated because the amount we need changes with age. As adult men or women, ideally we should be getting 46-56 grams/day. Infants typically require about 10 grams/day. Protein comes in so many different foods that it seems funny as a society we are told that and even based on the latest version of the food-groups that we should always look to dairy/eggs in order to get the best sourcing of protein. This of course is Big Ag and Big Dairy at work.

    The fact of the matter is protein is in a vast array of foods that for some curious reason never get much mainstream attention, such as green peas, quinoa, nuts and nut butter, beans, chickpeas, tempeh and tofu, edamame, leafy greens, hemp, chia seeds, sesame/sunflower/poppy seeds, seitan, non-dairy milks and unsweetened cocoa powder. These foods will more than supply you with adequate and tasty alternatives.

    Every improvement listed was primarily from going Gluten-free! Veganism offered me relief, but much more in the form of weight loss, reduction in cold/hot sweats and the feeling of being light from a lighter and less stressed digestive tract. The greatest benefit I received from Veganism was a more complete belief in being a compassionate eater and a compassionate being. Pro-life extends to all life, not just human life. This was a great gift and has allowed me to become a more compassionate and sympathetic person to life I would have otherwise cared not if they lived or died, whether for my sake or the sake of Industrialized society.

    Let me know if you have any other concerns or questions. Peace to you all.

  • Thank you all for your input..

    but let me clarify a little more. This thread is something to be remedied with time, with patience and with trust. When I wrote and spoke my vows I put complete trust in another. As of two days ago I am realizing that I must actionably trust in order for those words to mean anything. Saying that you trust without actionability is like saying your Vegetarian while eating meat.

    Family is everything! Liberty can be found in family nd we all must be willing to surrender to the things we may not be able to completely control. Love to all.

  • I wasn't meaning it personally...

    I interpreted wrong apparently...sorry friend.

    Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

  • Yeah...

    I live a pretty intense life full of intense views. I cannot imagine living it any different. There was a short time ago when I would've never questioned the "professionals", but when you come to realize they have never cured a damn thing you've sought out remedy for, you cannot help but wake up to the fact that this nation is sick, and ever-increasingly so.

    If someday all my efforts to educate and speak out are overshadowed by those who convinced enough people otherwise, then that is what will come to pass. At least I held true to my beliefs and my questioning of authorities. That is possibly all there is for me to do.
