“Ahimsa” is the practice of non-violence.
Treat all things with respect for their place in the scheme of life. All things are connected.
In practicing ahimsa, in return you attract no harm.
A tiny striped worm offered me a chance to practice ahimsa today. It deserves another chance at life.
Champion Kale Eater
It and it’s relatives have been devouring our kale.
I brought kale leaves in, washed them thoroughly three times, soaked them in water to allow any critters to float out to be rescued. Then I patted the kale dry in a towel and stored it in the refrigerator for three days. I pulled it out to use in a green drink and found a few bad spots, so tore them off and put them in the trash. Now, the next morning, I find this one crawling its way out of our trash!! This is one tough critter.
Little Striped Worm is now back out in the garden, probably dining on more kale.
I’m okay with that. I’m also okay with the slight chance that I missed seeing a few more little worms and dined on them in my green drink.
The garden belongs to both of us. Accidents happen. It’s the circle of life.
