Prayer for Bruce

Post by dolphin_color » Fri Dec 20, 2019 1:06 pm

Yesterday I saved a cockroach from a bathroom. As I was bringing him (?) outside, I named him Bruce. When I tossed him out of my little bug transport device, onto some wood outside, he just remained there not moving. He may still be there now. I know he lost an antenna. So, let's hope he recovers and becomes a great bodhisattva for all sentient beings!

I believe he's deceased, as he's belly up and hasn't moved at all. Let's say a little prayer for his fortunate rebirths!

This thread has brought awareness to the respect for all life. We should do our best to minimize the suffering all living beings.

Peace and enlightenment

I am doing just fine; in fact, I am just "being".

Thank you so much for asking how I am doing, by the way. That is so kind of you.

I am hoping that Bruce has many lifetimes of joy.

Peace and enlightenment.

My favorite Bruce memory; there was a packing tape dispenser in the basement, I looked at it and saw a "daddy longlegs" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opiliones) with half of his legs stuck to the tape, trying in vain to escape. I got a razor blade and slowly ran it between the stuck legs and the tape and managed to not break any. Freed, I watched him stretch them all and put himself back in order. We parted ways on good terms, I hope he had a long career after...

Most days its just escorting stinkbugs to the window lol
