Why would one hate a fly for flying around the room? Who would hate a mosquito for eating? Who would hate a snake for defending it's self? Who would hate themselve's for dying?
Ask Barack Obama. He's the one who swatted that poor fly for all the world to see. lol
If anyone hates the fly, they hate themselve's.
Those pesky flies can sure get annoying. You can choose to capture in a cup and send outside, zap it or swat it depending upon your inclination.
As for the snake, stay out of the way.
There is no heaven but this and you percieve heaven everyday. Most just refuse to see it and are attached to the many aspects of suffering. It's easier to see our perceptions through emotion, than it is to see it for what it is. Life in all of it's forms are perceptions to one degree or another, but a fly is an ellephant to a flea, as the universe is to us. A source of life and a perception of it's self.
Yeah, like one giant molecule trying to find its atoms; cheers!
Like substances tend to attract one another. We need water and we are drawn to fire, we need the earth and we are drawn to space.
Yeah, everything is Zen... Didn't the rock group "Bush" on the album "6teen Stone,"once sing this kick-ass jam of a song with similar lyrics that basically implied these very same things?
Don't know. I don't realy listen to much music or watch T.V.. I've devoted my life to other things and I find some things to be a distraction.
Well, I totally agree that television is a distraction, as I haven't really watched live TV in quite a few years. However, I still reason in the media known as music, although I rarely get to enjoy it. Anyway, I'm surprised you have never heard of that ban and their song about Zen. ...Just brought it up because this is a "Zen" forum. Okay, I'll retain my casualness and try to be more serious; ha!
I know about the band Bush, I just don't listen to their songs. I stopped listening to the radio when I was 20 years old, about 15 years ago. If I am around a radio, I usually am not listening to it. Unless of course it's NPR or something with an educational value.
Yeah, we are all biologically attached to each other; we are all chemically attached to this planet; we are all atomically attached to this universe; cheers!
We feel that connection, as we sometimes look up. The problem is the distractions of men and the attachments the brain creates for us.
I thought they call that the "learning lessons of life & experience;" enjoy and explore, if it currently permits...
Learning about things is good, letting the brain be in charge, hinders true seeing. One cannot truly be one's self with the brain running all of the time. The only thing that realy separates us from what is, is the brain.
As Bruce Lee once said, "Don't think; feel... Don't concentrate on the finger pointing to the moon, or you will miss all that heavenly glory." ---Enter the Dragon
You will have to ask G-d to answer that question. I haven't gotten to heaven yet.
I have nothing against any of the animals on earth
It's not that the snake chooses to be bad; unlike humans, it's just the way it is. Humans have sense enough to know not to trust an animal that's inherently dangerous to mankind.
Me? Venomous? Ha! Ha! Ha! Surely you jest!
All these creeping creatures and the snakes and the vultures and the likes; have the right to live in this universe; we have to learn to coexist with them. Actually these scary creatures have parallel to human beings attitudes and personality...some personality are venomous snakes wich means they are traitors and they bite...deadly bite.
Well, Randy can be a bit venomous if you don't watch out!
Who could hate a beautiful Pitt Bull Terrier for the muscles that he or she's got? They only form a personality based upon that of the person that raises them.
Humans don't generally raise venomous snakes or flies. Humans also don't generally plan on dying.
many People have a tendancy to be hateful and opinionated, so much so that they miss living a happy existance and regret it when it's too late. "Karma is cruel mistress".
What does that have to do with Pitt Bull Terriers? You know, the dogs that fools try to use as extensions of their lack of masculinity in hopes of making up some of it?
The vilified dogs that are discriminated against as if they were blacks in the 1800's America?
That's right, blame everything on the poor snake! Y'all can just kiss my asp!
I've handled 100s of snakes, as a kid I put 5 snake down my shirt to keep me cool off in the summer time. Only been bitten once from my first captured snake. My Mother was cleaning out my dressers draws and picked up a 6 snake in her hands thinking they were part of the snakes and latter’s game. Love snakes, Mother hated snakes so the snakes had to leave home. Went to a snake temple in Malaysia were 1000s of venomous snake hung out by candle light and smoking incents, you would of love this place Randy
Yes, snakes are just another of the wonderful creatures we share our planet with, CP. They get a bad rap most of the time but cause much less trouble than the human species.
Yeah!!!You have 600 times greater chance of being killed by a deer than a snake, good thing hunters shoot them.
I'm more concerned about being killed by a human as they talk or text on a cell phone while driving.
Most of the lord shiva temples in indian forests have venomous snakes around statue or other parts of the temple. Atleast here in marleshwar, there are many venomous snakes who enjoy sleep without any attack from humans. Weird thing is they don't bite even if you touch them, that applies to snakes inside the temple, not outside. lol
The snakes have no ego. They know their function and it's not for just killing.
Biting is the only defense that exists in case of some birds and snakes. I just don't understand how come they differentiate between harmful and neutral humans roaming around them. Afterall we're talking about animal with less developed brain to process these complex thoughts.
The problem is, that you are letting your brain tell you how it works. Just because an animal is wild does not mean it's dumb. This is to say, without a complex brain, they have no ego to commit evil.
Here's why i find it strange. I have two parakeets at home and whenever i get close to the cage in bad mood, these guys run away from me. If i'm in good mood and get close to the cage, birds don't move at all. I am guessing is it because of magnetic field around me that these birds are sensing? Same goes for snakes too?
lol. I want to know the reason behind this because animals in wild are much aware about things going on around them.
They only stryke when they feel threatened, as we tend to feel threatened by things of no matter, such as ideology that we find different from our own.
Here's the image of temple inside cave, that I mentioned few posts back. There are snakes all around this cave. Not sure if you can spot any snake in photograph.
They were around the altar. If a snake has no reason to feel threatened, The snake will most likely not bite. If one has a threatening presence, the snake is most likely to strike. When we feel a threat or we don't understand something, we are likely to destroy it or convert it.
That might have been the snake temple I was in. No photos are allowed because the snake handle make their money from tourist posing with the snake on their shoulders. This one snake handler set a big viper on my shoulder, I said …..get him off me, pleassse, because this snake handler had many prior bites on his hand
I can't find it you look the same all over.
Women, however, will do exactly what you tell them not to. Take Eve for example. The most powerful being in existence told her not to eat the fruit and instead of obeying him, she listened to a snake. Just goes to show you God didn't know much about women, even after all of his boasting about his powers. It thought it was just a joke! Now who gets blamed for it?
Native Americans asked the first European settlers this question: "Why do you kill all snakes?" The reason they killed all snakes was because they'd grown up with iconographic images and bible text telling them serpents(snakes)were evil and of the Devil. Fear of snakes in humans is a learned trait, not an inherent one.
It totally is learned. But by over riding the fear reflex, we see that they are just doing as they do, just as we do what we do.
All animal love, maybe human beings can turn their main motavation of fear into love.
I hate snakes, don't mean to kill them unless of course if mamba is chasing me.
An Indian guy swore that after the monsoon venomous snakes search out people to bite. Any accuracy at all there?
I don't know how accurate is that. There aren't any forests left here in Pune, so snakes are rare. I guess that guy must be living near forest or river. I usually see snakes during my country side visits. I only heard stories of cobras chasing few farmers in that area. Never found truth in that. People do exaggerate especially when it comes to snakes.
Pakistan-India, vengeful cobras; didn't think so, musta been yanking the chain.

This may also include sinners or homosexuals. How many times have we read signs from those who call themselves christians that "God hates sinners"? So is it wrong for them to hate God back?

A Monacled albino cobra is on the loose in Southern California. http://news.msn.com/us/search-on-for-de … californiaAuthorities think the snake escaped from captivity and the owner has not yet been found. Why would anyone own a venomous snake? I have read so many news articles...

Why Do People Hate Snakes?I won't accept, "because they are icky." I want you to search your soul and come up with valid reasons. "Because they are slimy" doesn't count either, because snakes aren't slimy!

How do you get a snake out of your car?Really. This happened to me. Thank goodness for some menfolk who worked really hard to beat it out. But...there's gotta be a better way!
