If I remember correctly, around 10+ years ago, i watched Taiwanese series of paranormal, gods, ghosts related show. A co-host, a Mao Shan Taoist, said they do practice fasting and vegetarian only before certain rituals. Not everyday vegetarian.

Profound Standard / Can Taoists eat meat? (YES THEY DO!)

Eating Meat, According to Taoist Philosophy
Source: http://deepaknair.com/2017/08/30/eating-meat-according-taoist-philosophy/
August 30, 2017

I was curious about this topic because I’ve tried every type of diet I can think of.

Eating tons of meat through Atkins and Paleo diets. Felt too blech and bloated when eating too many meat products.

Eating only fruit for a short while. My health wasn’t great with this method.

Tried fruit & veggie juice fasts and that did not go over well either.


Being a 100% vegan for multiple stints, the longest being about six months straight. Though I felt better for a while, long term I felt weak and tired. (And yes, I did take B12 and other supplements as needed.)

Tried being a vegetarian who eats fish. This was much better for me than pure vegan or mostly meat type diets.

Nowadays I add in the occasional meat products along with fish and eggs, while trying to eat mostly vegetarian. Moderation.

I’m already very Yin naturally and when I eat tons of fruits and raw and even cooked veggies, I become even more Yin. This issue becomes more difficult during Chicago winters. Meat, eggs, and fish tend to make me Yang, and therefore balanced.

I also believe there are genetic variations among humans, and some people may thrive better on vegetarian diets while others will not. This according to the Blood Type & Genotype Diet theories.

There are ethical reasons (caring for animals and planet) as well as personal health reasons (to feel vibrant) to choose a diet.

If you care for animals and the planet, but don’t give your body what it needs, that is not good. At that point, why even live? Better not to be alive so the planet is even more benefited.

[*ArtofFugue's opinion: Those farm animals were borned as such due to their own bad karma from past life (as human who committed many ill deeds during past life). It's their karma and retribution.... They're now reaping what they sowed! What's more, many slaughterhouses are very ethical and humane in their killing method, though inevitably there're black sheeps too!]

If you only care about yourself, while harming the planet, that is also not good.

There has to be a middle way.

I don’t know the right answer to eating meat, but do know that one of my main role models, Louise Hay, does eat fish, makes bone broth, and I believe also eats meat. And she’s as spiritual and open-minded as they come.

And plenty of animals eat meat. Lions, tigers, cats, dogs, owls, wolves, and so on. They naturally practice moderation and only hunt and eat what they need. Humans have a tendency to overdo things.

I want to share this article that has a Chinese/Taoist philosophy to eating meat that I had never heard before.

Quote
The prevailing view among Taoist sources is that one should eat meat. The most common reasoning being the high demands of living in a competitive industrialized society are too taxing on the body to subsist healthfully on a vegetarian diet.

    In his The Great Tao, Stephen Chan emphatically states in large bold letters “DO EAT MEAT”, stating that only animal products can supply the high energy levels that we need, unless living in an isolated retreat.

    Ming-Dao Deng, in his book on a Taoist lifestyle, shares this view writing:

    “It is unnecessary to become a complete vegetarian. Vegetarianism arouse out of economic necessity or for specific high meditations. Meat is too active for the quiescent activities of a meditator. Temple living is a very specific activity in a protected environment. The scholar warrior considers pure vegetarianism to be impractical in a competitive society. ”

    Master Hua Ching Ni, a Taoist spiritual teacher and practitioner of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles also cautions against a strict vegetarian diet, upholding that the nature of ones life should determine the amount of meat one eats.

    “Vegetarianism is okay if you live in a religious institution, without doing extremely hard work, but in this high pressure society where most of you work hard, I do not recommend it, especially in the winter.”

Hi there,

Looking at your chart. You are an ambitious person and love power/authority but you like keep it low. You have lots of support from friends, parents and lots of people 贵人 to help you especially when you are in difficulties. This year is a good year for you as you have or will be promoted, however it may not be something u like to do as this is a hot seat. Are you working for the government? You are good at socializing and being a diplomat.

Tai yang hua ji is not in your Ming Gong 命宫, but it's at the opposite gong wei 宫位 shine directly to your Ming Gong plus kong jie (空劫) at the 3 triangular positions. My opinion is business may not be a good option for you.

Hope that help

Cheers!

Your assessment is pretty accurate. My friend is trying to get me a promotion in a hot seat, but the pay is the same as my current pay. Not sure if I will enjoy it much. I will be managing a lot of people. But I suppose it's good for my career long term.  What does my chart say about next year? Thanks.

Thanks for the verification. I am curious about your job. What do you work as?

Cheers!

For some reason people call me a doctor. I use my hands a lot and utilize a lot of metal instruments. What I say to people is very important too. If I say the wrong things, I may get into legal issues.

What do you see in my chart for next year?

This is interesting. What’s the actual title of your job? Which industry are you in?

Lead Doctor. Healthcare.
