As I have mentioned before, and wrote in my article in Green Panther Press (Pete and Erin’s all things vegan venture/zine) one of the byproducts of eating a plant-based diet is that a more peaceful nature becomes you. This is much like what happens from sitting in meditation regularly. While this comic pokes fun at lawyers, it’s pretty clear, based on the recent on-going theme that someone (the artist?) involved in the production of this comic has given up eating animals and is feeling the peaceful difference it makes.
In fact, though, becoming more at peace doesn’t HAVE to make you any less on your game if you are a lawyer or an athlete or an ANYTHING! Dan Harris (ABC News anchor) writes about this very topic in his book 10% Happier. While meditation started to make him TOO ZEN, he did find the balance and stay on his game (a quite competitive field!). It’s learning how to enjoy a more peaceful soul, without losing the aggressiveness needed to be successful on the job.
So if want more peace and happiness in your life, consider some plant-based meals today and every day! If you want to learn more about the vegan lifestyle, I have lots of info, can recommend some great reads and foods and you can search this site for some recipes. If you are on Facebook make friends with Green Panther Press for lots more (hardcore) info!
