I agree. I believe that when issues come up or something is seen -- our
intuition or intelligence will tell us what the right thing to do at that
time. This can happen only if we are not conditioned by other factors such
as fear, greed, ambition, egotism, pride etc. etc.  Every rule has
exceptions. So, I don't believe in fixed rules. If fixed rules are ok, then
a computer can be programmed to respond better than human beings!
