【A human life of leisure and opportunity】– Contemplating the great importance of leisure and opportunity
【b. Contemplating the great importance of leisure and opportunity】
Here, “contemplating”, don’t just let this word go so easily. With the great importance of leisure and opportunity, this is what the excellent teacher tells us, whether we can make use of it will depend on whether we are able to contemplate it in accordance to the teachings. If you can’t contemplate it in accordance to the teachings, even though this precious jewel is sitting here, it is of no use to you, much like metal scraps. Well, we shouldn’t say metal scraps. That is not the right way to say it. It’s more like there is something that is very good, and you say, “Aiyo! This is the best, the best!” So you purchase it and let it sit there without knowing how to use it. It is cumbersome, this is cumbersome.
