Excuse me, sir, do you know where I could find some enlightenment?
When I see children intentionally squashing bugs that aren’t indoors or possibly dangerous- and laughing when they do it- I get pretty angry at whomever is raising them that way. A child with no value of life in such a small harmless form can’t grow up fully appreciating the value of life in anything.
Teach children to love, and respect, insects and animals alike- and watch that child grow up a better person for it.
"If it brings joy to you, it probably brings joy to your deity. Remember making your parents proud? It’s like that. You’re an extension of your deity, their hands in the world. We use many of the same terms to describe who we are to our gods; “Daughters of Isis”, “Freyja’s Dottir” “Child of God”.
Live your life as if it were an offering to your Gods, because it is a gift from them.”
