The reasons why people became vegan/vegetarian may be different - spiritual, animal care, sustainability, health, etc - but ultimately they are all driven by love. Love for the self, for the Divine, for the Whole. I am vegan because I have tremendous love for the Whole, for Mother Earth, for Nature, for animals.

All the ways towards balance bring us back to a life in harmony with the "All that is". To me these are the most important ways to restore balance and live in harmony.
