Very true; we all have a place in the world in our own body... the purposes we put it too are other chosen at birth and that continues on in
responsibility self chosen purposes is why there is law; as many adults still behave as children not only in the home in self and other destructive
ways without conscious thought to preservation in respect of what is already there, but out in the real world in the same way in trying to hoard
things out of greed and hate delusionally ignorant that existing separate when that is an impossibility in all things being dependent in all of nature
and life itself in extremes of being instead of in peace and equanimity, to whatever arises and passes in fearlessness.
Grasping is something all sentient life does to form... who is lifting the heaviest fork? The one holding it or the one stuck on the other end? The
one on the other end is already void of life even if the one lifting it is trying to avoid all of it but their own also void of life in my personal
opinion as; respecting the entire chain from where it arose helps to see all of this dependent arising that brought it all into being... from the bees
that pollinated the vegetables, to the light that grew them and the table/chair to the many hands that produced to all to that moment... of course
sitting at such a table thinking of all of that may never end the eating making one gluttonous instead of simply oblivious or ignorant to it... that
prayer or grace said before a meal was meant to be a reminder of such things.
Of course, it is nearly and impossibility for some to live in such a state at all times but not impossible, all that arises also passes such is the
nature of impermanence... which is the only permeance when personally observed in the wisdom of experience.
