Illusory Advice: Right livelihood

"We are all always compromised. Being alive is the cause of discomfort or death for other beings. Every time you cook, drive your car, walk across a lawn, take medicines, etcetera, etcetera, you are causing the death or discomfort of other beings. It is not possible to live in the world ‘purely.’ Your life is the cause of suffering for other beings. Everything is interconnected. Practitioners recognise their dependence on all other beings, in their ability to live their lives. They try not to do harm and to be of benefit to others within their capacity. "
