The Joyful Vegan: How to Stay Vegan in a World That Wants You to Eat Meat, Dairy, and Eggs
Joyful vegans manifest and model compassion.
We all know how easy it is to have compassion for those who agree with us, look like us, vote like us, and eat like us, but being compassionate means striving to have compassion for everyone:
– the guilty and the nonguilty
– the kind and the unkind
– the good and the evil
– the human and the nonhuman
– the people we like and the people we don’t
Authentic compassion means having compassion even for people who are not compassionate.
Joyful vegans plant seeds and remain unattached to whether or not those seeds germinate.
This concept is difficult to comprehend and even more so to implement, especially for those who perceive letting go as weakness or passivity. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Being clear and standing firm in what you say but remaining unattached to how someone reacts to what you say is incredibly empowering and liberating.
Worry less about people who don’t agree with you.
Harness instead the power and energy of the people who do agree with you, get to work, and let others do theirs.
Joyful vegans find common ground.
They even find common ground with people who may on the face of it seem like “the enemy” or “the opposition.” This is not always easy to do because you have to be more willing to find resolution than you are eager to be right; you have to be more willing to solve the problem than you are anxious to win the argument. Joyful vegans ask, Do I want to be right or do I want to be effective?
