Weeding

July 9, 2012

I have found, not surprisingly, that I am less likely to pull out a plant I didn’t intend to pull out if I don’t wear gardening gloves while I weed.  On the other hand, like today, I end up with cuts and gashes on my fingers and hands if I don’t wear them.

I remember hearing, during an early spiritual experience, how our own self-protection (or, maybe, rather, our own attempt at self-protection) hurts others.  This gardening glove thing reminds me of that.
