… Wildlife seldom stimulates unwholesome attachments. Pets don’t necessarily do so but unwholesome attachment to pets definitely occur, tho perhaps more often with dogs than cats . … I spare the community pictures of my grandchildren, despite this
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings;
Radiating kindness over the entire world:
I guess that the stronger an attachment is the bigger its potential for promoting good, but also the stronger its potential for promoting unskillful and unwholesome thoughts and actions. As a mother, I can reflect on that.
Edit: I should probably flag myself for veering off topic. Apology.
