Agree totally with everything above

""I haven't eaten a bite of meat or fish for forty-five years, having become a vegetarian when I was twenty-one because I didn't want to be responsible for killing animals unnecessarily. I've sat next to countless meat-eaters who were eating food that once had a face.""



I think this has to do with the old spiritual injunction that sex is bad. It's possible that sitting next to an attractive woman is going to make you think about sex. Going towards sense pleasures is opposite to the spiritual path which is all about the pleasures of the internal realms/music.
