Truth be told, I’d rather sacrifice a human than an animal. While the legal ramifications of the former far exceed those of the latter, I happen to like animals. There’s plenty of rapists within the world; not many of them would be missed were they to suddenly vanish.
All it takes is a little creative thinking…a venomous snake could hardly be viewed as a murder weapon were the individual’s body to be found amongst a lush and tranquil forest where that particular species resides. You have your sacrifice and rid the world of some overly abundant trash while you’re at it.
Granted, all hypothetically speaking of course… Thankfully, my spiritual path doesn’t require sacrifice, beyond emotional energy. I’m more inclined to create willing, living, sacrifices driven to debaucherous madness…both legal and quite enjoyable. Still, there’s been a few occasions within the past where a simple name could have resulted in the descried hypothetical situation listed above, were it only provided.
I posted my previous message before reading the one directly above mine involving the serpent visualization; that’s extremely interesting.
