too bad, better luck next time hah.
Jake, if rebirth does occur, and the process of rebirth is connected to one's kamma (karma , or actions) you might be mindful that you could be reborn in the insect realm as an ant yourself. Maybe, maybe not. One day, that approaching sneaker might have your name on it....so,try to be mindful that you and the ants are living things doing your best in the world, and as Ajahn Brahm suggests, practice kindfulness. Be kind to the ants. Be kind to others in your world. You may attract kindness to yourself, and what a better world that will be!
