Vegetarian restaurateuring can provide independence from the system and a deep connection to the spirit of the community. Every transaction you make - whether you are selling or buying something or just sharing thoughts like reading this passage, or having a relationship - is a statement based in either love or tyranny. If your statement is love it is liberating, even if it is so to the smallest degree. The community will respond accordingly. The community responds in proportion to the power of the statement you make. Every time someone orders a vegetarian instead of animal meal, there is one less killing somewhere in the world; one less creature has suffered and the world is that much happier. Provided your statement is an applied philosophy and not just a business procedure, your spirit will guide you through what you have to learn to grow within your statement. The purity (love or tyranny) of your motives will be exposed with the unfolding of your actions and your presentation. This is how you can keep pace with your own personal growth. The alternative is you burn-out one way or another as a result of weakness you refused to transform of yourself.
