When geographically separated, both are now longer under the dietary influence of the other (without imposing their respective diet on the other) but they have their own space and can reflect on what kind of diet they want, healthy-wise, ethically or for joy.

The moral/lesson: Contract and release and always give room after you set your own boundaries. This essentially means that every once in a while you should question your actions and behavior. If something has turned into a rigid conviction maybe it’s time to liquefy or soften it a bit. There’s a reason why 70 or 80 percent of our bodies consist of water. A riding conviction simply doesn’t feel natural to a body that is longing for liquidity.
Correction: "A rigid conviction..." not a "A riding conviction..." ;)
