Hey, G~J: To slap those "nasty", those "biting" horseflies -- that you call respect?
Ahhh... good point, Rune
Let me explain...
The flies were biting, painfully...
I am not a pure enough being to ignore pain
and not respond to it.
(...nor are you???)
However, I only "stunned" the flies
Horse flies are VERY tough, BTW
I did respect the flies, by not killing them.
Lizzie was opportunistic...
She seized the moment and reacted
Lizzie only did what was natural, so did I.
Only a Jainist might not respond as I did
I have never seen a Jainist being bitten by horse flies
I can only assume Jainism would allow this
...with a non-violent response, brushing away
Rune, you are correct...
when you and I become Jains...
only then can we speak of "respect" to all life
But we digress... from the main thread
Any more Pet Pictures, allchileans...
perros y gatos?
any/all are enjoyable to share!
we will respect them!
