Random food stuff.
lacielacie: When I go on vacation to visit family, I usually allow myself to eat meat. I do this for a few reasons.

This is why contemplation is necessary, to reconcile the mind with soul as a means to unify them, the end being that all communication henceforth-to Oneself and to others-is an act of the soul...
