Hello from Germany :)

#1 Postby chr!s » Sat Oct 14, 2006 2:44 am

Hello everyone,

I decided to join the forum some weeks ago and I think it’s time to introduce myself now. I’m a 28 year old male from Germany and vegan since two years. Veganism for me was first of all a healthy lifestyle. After a few months I realized that it is more than just the awareness of what I eat. The more I read about veganism and animal rights my opinion changed constantly. Although I’m everything else then a Mystic I felt to be a part of the whole and found a kind of personal peace for myself in veganism. Congruency between thinking and acting is of capital importance for me. I’ll try to be authentic as much as possible even though it is very often uncomfortable and I fail from time to time. Nevertheless congruency is very desirable for me and worth for fighting every day although I know that I’m aiming high. For me being vegan is very congruent way of life which combines tolerance, respect for life and ahimsa which altogether keeps me in peace with myself and my environment.

I read a lot of posts in this forum and I think this is really a nice place to be. It’s my first forum membership ever and I hope to meet a lot of nice people. I’m very happy that I found a vegan-fitness forum because there are no stereotypes about vegan lifestyle.

I’m a music and movie enthusiast and besides I’m interested in weight lifting. My goal is to gain some weight and keep myself in good shape and health. I’ll hope to get some helpful suggestions and meet some interesting people in here.

I think that’s enough now…

See ya all

P.S. My English isn’t that good but I hope to make some progress with it too. :D
