Today’s guest is John Joseph. He is the lead singer of Cro-Mags and Bloodclot, as well as the author of three books: The Evolution of a Cro-Magnon, Meat Is for Pussies, and The PMA Effect. He is a triathlete, leader in the plant-based movement, and long-time yogi.
John describes his rough upbringing in New York City, which involved drugs, fighting, and getting shot. The judicial system eventually offered him to either go to jail or to the Navy. He chose the Navy and he tells us that this really caused his life to begin its change.
Rastafarians taught John that when you eat an animal, you are ingesting every second of that animal’s pain. There are so many options today; eating animals is unnecessary. John instills that in yoga, you must do what the shastra says. We don’t change the shastra to suit our lifestyle, we change our lifestyle because it’s what the shastra tells us to do.
Though your path may not be the same on John’s, he believes that they can both be paths of goodness that help the world. We finish by hearing what John is working on for 2020.
