2 pointsI don’t quite see the point of this thread, but I also disagree with this comment. And would like to explain why. What does being “evolved” have to do with defending yourself? Hurting someone because they hurt you doesn’t necessarily have to have anything to do with vengeance. Sometimes the best way to make sure someone stops messing with you is to hurt them, it’s a perfectly valid tactic. They may think “oh I wasn’t aware messing with this thing could cause me this much trouble, I’ll stop now” and be on their way. Or they’ll get busy and preoccupied dealing with the damage you caused and not have the time or energy to hurt you anymore. Either way, it’s a valid tactic. and to second Oroboros, this forum doesn’t generally take kindly to being lectured on morals and ethics. We speak about it when someone asks first or brings it up with the purpose of discussion. And we don’t try to push our own codes on someone else by claiming our code is more ‘evolved’ because well... that is considered preechy. Edit: grammar (and got a name wrong)
2 pointsThere is a lot here that strikes me as an odd response in this forum but perhaps I misunderstand? - it SOUNDS like you are responding to a post I am missing. I see nothing where anyone is discussing killing wasps or animals... not to say there is no place for that in some practices because there is. i also see no discussion of the wasps “ghost.” -it sounds like you are utterly unfamiliar with the concept of representational magic and how it works. -it sounds like you are unaware that the majority of people in this forum are quite comfortable with curse work, hexing and malefic workings when appropriate. Those who are here and do not DO this type of magic at least respect that it is accepted here. It is understood by those with maturity in their path that personal responsibility, shadow work and mundane problem solving are integral parts of this path. So I would not assume that members need to be lectured on this unless they have said something to indicate they do not grasp these concepts.
