Despite all of your knowledge about the animals, it has not really been suspected that the natural hunter-animal kills most mercifully. The animals follow the rule of good intentions, in which unconsciously, in your terms, the good of one does serve the good of all.

Your dream was an excellent rendition, for here you have men unaware of the mouse’s dilemma to such an extent that it was beside the point—so taken for granted that it became invisible. The purpose to eat was good—well-intentioned. But the means were not those that would benefit all involved, for the mouse died no quick death.

In the dream you make a decision never to partake of such a feast again, and the decision simply represents the multitudinous like decisions that are made by individual people, when they finally recognize the fact that a given act, considered acceptable in the past, does not fit in with the overall intent of life at large. Such feasts were eaten often by the Arabs and the Turks.

The fire was supposed to burn away any disease, and mice were all too numerous. Acts which fit in with the good-intended universe, in which basically each life and detail, seeking its good, also works for the good of all others, bring forth what you call good acts—simple enough acts which are not well-intentioned in that light, toward the self or others “do not work right.” They are flawed, unpleasant. They bring pain, sorrow, or illness to the self or to others, and they are often called evil acts.

In your system of reality, the other creatures cannot help but act with good intent—even if their intent is to kill their prey. Because of many reasons given throughout the material, mankind took himself out of that context. Seemingly he gave up a certain identification with nature, and as a result he will finally come to appreciate it from an entirely different viewpoint.

(9:44.) He will learn to be consciously well-intentioned. Again, simple enough. He will consciously seek his own good – not at the expense of others, for he will realize that he cannot achieve any good in that manner. You cannot kill a chicken, personally now, and eat it comfortably. You certainly cannot kill a cow by yourselves. Indirectly, however, you know that the slaughterhouses are cruel—that animals are not killed quickly or cleanly, and to some extent the psychic disquiet of those animals is consumed with their meat. Animals killed quickly and cleanly make better food.

On the other hand, because of your agricultural methods and so forth, many animals live, through breeding, who would not live otherwise—so those creatures are given life. When man learns to approach a well-intentioned psychological environment, he will then be following the inherent nature of all realities.

Acts not well-intentioned clash with the basic structures that form experience, and hence they do indeed appear in grotesque, fragmented or distorted form—often all the more reprehensible in contrast to their stated intent.
