: question  im asking is how can you be mekayem the aseh.

This asei is a chiyuv, not a mitzvah qiyumis. You can't just skip out
on fulfilling the asei.

Which is why it's hard to believe that all that discussion is of which
cases are oveir "only" the asei. Even if the mention only mentions bal
talin. How could it write "if you do X, or Y, or Z, or... you aren't
over bal talin" without not mentioning in in any of those se'ifim that
you're still not allowed to do any of these things anyway?

Tir'u baTov!
