I wanted to put a post about Religion/spirituality and wasnt sure where to put it. I put it here, hope its okay.

I was brought up catholic, but rejected the religion years ago. For many reasons, it's not gay friendly, in my opionion it is full of contradiction, ETC. My recent transition to veganism has been very spiritual but I am in search for something more.

Anyway, it had me wondering

What religion/spirituality the other veg*ns practiced on this board?

Is it different from the religion/spirituality that you were brought up as?

Some kinds of natural sense of spirituality can be I find, quite a wonder if broad minded enough .......and certainly gives rise to worthwhile experiences on the whole (if you keep open-minded!!)

Its a very individual thing(quest/adventure) on the whole I find as each person finds their own true course in life, but it shouldn't leave us stranded or isolated in doing so and should not stop us to share with like-minds what our particular spiritualisms are as we are doing in this thread!!.....

Very basically I will say for me its just about having good senses

and perceptions and be as in keeping with nature and veganism

as possible!....

Thats about all I can say without sounding religious (which I am not).

Pagan here, not exactly sure on where I fit in, I call it Meganism


My main goddess is Gaia, which would fit in to a vegetarian lifestyle
There's a movement called gaianism, people may follow another religiojn and still believe in gaianism, it's the belief of the Earth as a sentinent being ( I think I spelled that right) If you're really into enviromental issues, it may go too

I've had trouble with the above -- the fact that I don't think homosexuality is a ticket to hell has pretty much ostracized me from more than a few churches, but here I am still a Christian. Go fig. I think the churches that get the point of humans not being in a position where they can condemn one another do an alright job, but too many push down others in order to make themselves feel better or more righteous.

Of course, here I am judging them. Oops.

I don't have any "religious" beliefs. Born and raised without belief in a god or a religion. However, I find the more philosophical side of Buddhism to be helpful in getting in touch with my spiritual side, as does gratitude, meditating on feeling at peace with the world, accepting myself, nature, and many other things.
