I understand why authors kill our favorite characters because it’s about sacrifices. But after losing Sirius, Dumbledore, Dobby, Remus, Tonks, Fred, Finnick, Prim, and many others.. I think we understand sacrifices. So Cassandra Clare… Please don’t kill Magnus. Or Jace. Or Will or Jem even though Jem is dying. K..thanks..
so my last request for junk food is platano chips and glazed donuts. No pizza, no subway, not even chinese food. Idk what’s wrong with me but thats what I’m craving. Supposedly this is the last day I can enjoy those things. Last night I shopped for healthy food so tomorrow my strict diet begins.
I hate waking up early and that’s something I have to do every day now :[
How I feel about this character: he is the man I loved longer than anyone else (5 yrs or so, I’m bad at simple math) anyway i won’t write an essay tho I can but GINTOKI damn, have u seen his arms? yeah
All the people I ship romantically with this character: me and Takasugi
My non-romantic OTP for this character: ummm, idk if I should put it here but I just LOVE his relationship with Kagura and Shinpachi, it’s so important for them and me. They are like his fuel and his their guidepost, very very important, also the whole joui. joui. what else? not joy for sure
My unpopular opinion about this character: he’s not too memeable, shame but tbh unpopluar one? I don’t I have anything
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: when he is at peace. when he accepts everything. nirvana, catharsis, everything is ok, he doesn’t need to sacrfice anything, he doesn’t hold any burden anymore, he saved everyone that need to be saved (you also see here why Takasugi can’t die, do u think Gintoki would handle it? do u think he deserves it? he swore to protect him and his soul even if he’s going to kill him ok but u know what he meant and woke up, fully rested Takasugi is saved, he found Jesus, no need to kill him, don’t do it to Gintoki, gorilla, don’t.)
This post was lifted from the Facebook page I run.
Gestumblindi’s post on the sacrfice of Ymir reminded me of the Purusha Sukta from the tenth mandala of the Rig Veda and in general when it comes to creation myths. Creatio ex nihilo, creation from nothing, was not that common in the faiths of the ancients; whether through ritual sacrifice or literally desecrating a corpse, the universe was born from something already existing. Some examples from outside the Indo-European faiths of this occurence are: Marduk creating the universe from Tiamat’s corpse, the primeval crocodile Cipactli was killed to create the universe according to the Aztecs, and some Jewish thinkers even claim that Yahweh melded primordial matter into the universe and not from nothing. Anyway the Purusha Sukta is one of the creation myths told in the “Hindu” traditions and one of the Vedic hymns that is recited to this day during rituals and the fire sacrifice, havan/homam. While literally the term purusha means man, the symbolic meaning of the purusha has changed over time. Originally referring to the cosmic man who was sacrificed for the purpose of creation, with time and much deliberation amongst the sages the purusha became the metaphor of the eternal Self and is used in reference to both Vishnu and the Nirguna Brahman (the highest and ultimate reality).
Now a few verses taken from the hymn in the English translation and Sanskrit romanization:
From that yajna (or sacrificial ritual) wherein the Cosmic Being was Himself the oblation, was produced the prasajya (or curds mixed with ghee). Birds flying in the air, wild animals of the forest as also the domesticated animals of the villages were also produced.
Verse 11: tasmadashva ajayata ye ke cobhaya dataha gavo ha jijignire tasmat tasmad jnata ajavayaha
From that were born the horses, as also animals (like donkeys and mules) which have two rows of teeth. From that were born the cattle. From that (again) were born goats and sheep.
From (His) navel was produced the antariksha (the space between the earth and the heavens). Dyuloka (or heaven) came into existence from His head. The bhumi (the earth) evolved out of His feet, and deek (or spacial directions) from His ears. Similarly (the demigods) produced the worlds (too).
If you drive into a pool with no water you will break your neck like i did. Well i say this metaphoricly . So i had to make a sacrfice that i didnt want to. It is probably best for me but i just cant get around the fact that i had to choose either or. Like this world is either or. You can have the whole cake but cant eat it. My life right now is cloudly in my head, my mind is filled with voices hat i try to ignor but can and not you take away the only thing that takes that away. If you cage a wolf, do you think that wolf will let you pet it with out biting your fucking hand off. I dont think so.
