Respect for four and two leggeds
I am offering/sending Fa Qi to a dear one's daughter in a coma, thing is, some challenges take us in directions that do not restore the common plight, often they are to connect us to the submerged understanding that our ideas of reality are not as it really is. And that is really the greater gift.
But I understand the need and respect the desire to help and to love... such challenges as illness and death exist to provoke a renewal of this understanding, perhaps we can help others to understand this as well.
I guess I am saying sometimes the best way to help someone so ill is to detach a bit and allow them permission to do whatever they need to do. There is a fine line between encouragement that liberates and desire that holds sometimes.
When an animal is ill I have no problem interfering with that illness or seeking to prevent death, why is that? I think they have such a deep understanding that we can not interfere with their plans or lessons by trying to get them to stay and be well and help us. Whereas some people come into life to offer lessons to others and then go, or to learn lessons and then go, and should not be interfered with. Also - animals make it clear what they need and want, if I listen and can discern.
