I remember a while back someone posted something about how contact lenses can be made from silk, and that this was considered green. But the article also described that silk was acquire by burning sleeping silk worms alive. Any opinions on how that is “green”? Is that “ethical” (yes, that’s a highly subjective term..) at all? What has been the Chinese peoples’ rationalization for this? Is there any other way to acquire silk? My current opinion is probably obvious from the questions I asked, but I also asked the questions because it’s changable. thanks for any inputNovember 14, 2008 at 11:10 pm #29589
If you know your heart you do not need ethics or morals. I find most of the green movement taken to extreme is a removal of the human species and its effect. Unlike the ancient ways we do not honor our partners, like our food, clothing, computers ect. All of these in the future I see being designed and cared for with the perspective that they are our partners in way making and part of the living chi field but still not human we have the responsibility of choosing direction and walking one foot in heaven and earth.November 15, 2008 at 3:03 pm #29591November 20, 2008 at 3:47 am #29593

what i really meant to ask was
are you okay with burning animals alive?
i didn’t really mean for it to be as part of some ethic or moral system (which my post did make it sound like and i think you and Dog thought I meant), but how a person feels about the practice, and i was trying to ask it in a nice, open way.
Jernej, why did you say:
knowing exactly what is
and resisting it

Part of my point was the liveness of all things which can be experienced deeply and that connection cultivated with the inner smile practice.November 21, 2008 at 9:53 pm #29599
Hard to say.
Who’s to say that the silk worms that die from being used
in silk production, weren’t created for that very purpose,
and that their very cataclysmic death is the ultimate gift
of love on their part to produce something wonderful. You
can’t ask the silk worms . . .
My personal feeling is something akin to the previous paragraph.

i know of little monkey
his parents take him to eye trainning
several times per week with professionals
other days home practice
she got from -4 to -3 or something like that
the relaxation path is the bates method or similar
the aggressive is rigorous liver and gall bladder clensing
(one wrote down menu)
yet you chose to focus on quick fixes
and out of those you go
for throwing peroxide or encymes in the eye
or just slowly choking eyes to thet
of course also the eye glasses weaken the eyes
a stupid societal bandha
an easy temporal fix for goggles is just seriously lower bent (for 2 D)
while above workings
so after going and focusing on a quick fix
the issue presented was small critter suffering
lets step back. 5billion people, 80 years per incarnation, leaves mote than
5000 human individuals dead every hour
countfull other animals too.
some die of violent death. others of smaller critters slowly. all are eaten up if circumstances permit
more precisly every body is a transmutation of a previos body of something.
and transmutation involves death, concurrent or sequencial.
pure are those that are not.
so if an animal wants to go pure, it is a fast.
or unconscious fasting, as in case of anorexic.
the opposite of a passionate human.
both have the same knowledge or innards,
but one choose one way, which includes teething meat,
and other opposite.
so the principle reaction of anorexic and peta human are of similar nature.
there was an interesting move sineater.
eating the body
eating the karma
as one americanative (?) one my limb is chicken other is some other etc.
it is not profiteering per se.
more like transforming of one karma into another.
but there is always karma.
no karma no body
