You want to be protected from harm. You know how it feels to be cut by a blade and shredding blood. You want to be safe. But little do you care about what happens to other beings who are victims of your actions. Stepping a bug is like a elephant step a new born child. Spraying a toxic chemical to a fly is like a human dying from a chemical reaction.
If you could be in the same shoes as others, you would never dare to harm anyone or anything. Just like you who want to be protected from danger, so should you avoid harming others as they have the same desire as you: to live a safe and peaceful life. Never take any being’s right to live. Many animals are consumed in fear. To increase their fear is a unwholesome act to do, on top of harming them.
