M: Actually save is not save.
O: That Jesuit Priest said "God does not interfere." Is that what you mean?
M: I'm not God, but if God doesn't interfere, neither should I.
M: That's it. Save but don't interfere.
O: So you are not a Christian missionary.
M: Not one bit of that.
O: So what's this about "walk on the Earth as if it is your mother's face." How do you walk on your mother's face?
M: With a lot of attention. Being careful not to make any indentations.
O: So it seems like a paradox. You say "save all sentient beings" and then you say "do not interfere." You can't have your cake and eat it too.
M: I'm not eating cake these days.
O: The cake will be eaten without your assistance.
M: I guess your question is "how can you save by not interfering."
O: Sounds like "laissez-faire" to me.
M: That has gotten a bad rap, esp. in liberal circles.
O: So what do you mean?
M: Well, imagine walking through the forest and not disturbing a twig or leaf.
O: But one leaf is soon to be eaten by an insect. Don't you want to save that leaf?
M: As much as I care for the life of the leaf, I also care for the life of the insect. I shouldn't save one from the other. That's interfering... and if it isn't for God, it isn't for me.
O: Sounds like you are playing God by not interfering?
M: No, just trying to let the forest be as it is. Enough will happen to it without my assistance. It doesn't need me.
O: How about to keep others from interfering?
M: Now we're talking!
