when he fell into the hands of robbers.
They stripped him of his clothes, beat him
and went away, leaving him half dead.
A priest happened to be going down the same road,

when he came to the place and saw him,
passed by on the other side.

and were suspicious of each other] came where the man was;

He went to him and bandaged his wounds ... and ...
took him to an inn and took care of him. ...
Jesus [said] "Go and do likewise."

and people devise a set of rules to fill the space.

when in reality it is the opposite.

as well as or faults with neutrality,

we develop true regard for ourselves,
and our life will become sacred.
