Not creating evil
The first of the three pure precepts is "not creating evil."
My mind wonders about this. If I got up in the morning with that intention... what would I do? Not rob a bank? It would all be about restraint.
My heart understands it. As I make decisions, I try to choose that which walks carefully and not the choice that hurts.
Words are cheap. And evil is pretty extreme. I think I need more time with this one.
