"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.”
To believe we can live without taking life is delusional. Humans may only cultivate nonviolence in our diets by degree. I’ve heard a Buddhist monk suggest the *number* of food-caused deaths is minimized in steak dinners, which share one death over many meals, whereas the equation is reversed for a bowl of clams.
I take my gospel from Wendell Berry, who writes “I dislike the thought that some animal has been made miserable in order to feed me. If I am going to eat meat, I want it to be from an animal that has lived a pleasant, uncrowded life outdoors, on bountiful pasture, with good water nearby and trees for shade. And I am getting almost as fussy about food plants.”
We interrupt your usual schedule to bring you a very small pig descending a set of stairs.
Current progress of Diamond the Service Dog, as you can see i am a boss i reducing swelling however now that i’ve succeeded in getting the swelling down i’ve reached the point of tissue death, which means the tissues of the paw are dying. I have enough meds and isodine to last 36 hours at which point i will have to make a choice of amputation or we may get slightly lucky and only lose a few toes. I am currently hovering at 2k in already paided vet bills (I will have to pay my lawyer back at some point) and 2k to have the paw removed. This is just an update. I will be posting updates on under the tag #diamond the service dog if you would like to follow her progress.
