Have been drawn towards a Scorpion’s STING & talk about deja-view once again…
Came across this poignant platinum piece, long ago. It’s brought an awareness of quite the different perspective:
Two monks were washing their bowls in the river when they noticed a scorpion that was drowning. One monk immediately scooped it up and set it upon the bank. In the process he was stung.
He went back to washing the bowl when he noticed the scorpion fall into the water again. The monk once again saved the scorpion and was stung again.
The other monk asked him, “My dear friend, why do you continue to save the scorpion when you know its nature is to sting?”
“Because,” the monk replied, “to save it is my nature.”
