You see, that's spot on. Funny how most of the pseudo-Sikh scholars and brahmgyanis neglect to ever mention these instances in Sikh history that convey a sense of canny, grounded realism on the part of our Guru Sahibs.
It was probably me not reading your posts thoroughly.
Two things come to mind with regard to what your saying. First thing is a vaar from Bhai Gurdas (I'm pretty sure?) where he says words to the effect of: If one falls out of a tree and manages to hit the ground unscathed somehow, it doesn't mean it is then okay to start jumping out of trees.
The other is a sakhi when one of our Guru sahiban (can't remember which, might have been Guru Angad dev ji or Guru Amar Das ji? ) is walking past a flimsy looking wall with some SIkhs and he tells them all to hurry past it. When they are queried as to why someone of their stature is concerned about being injured, he tells them live should be preserved and not toyed with.
