【A Human Life of Leisure and Opportunity】 – The effect/fruit of craving for happiness in the current life.
Do you know what is the reason? They also wish for happiness; this is a classic example. If we only wish for immediate happiness, then if you don’t do anything bad, you would become like this. If you have done something bad, then the result would be even more unthinkable. Just like that. These kinds of people are not bad people in their previous lives. So you will not find them abominable. However, they are just lazy and can’t invigorate themselves; it is this kind of state. I am just randomly mentioning [one example]! There are so many, so many places, where later, at every place, you will be able to see the mental actions very clearly! You just take a look and will see the character of phenomenon is just as such. That is why when we learn and practice the teachings, we must joyfully persevere. Actually for this thing, the habit from beginningless time, it is the same for everyone. I am like that too. Ah! Feeling tired, need to rest for a bit. Then when we stand we feel that it is suffering too. So unknowingly as time goes on, we become more and more like that. That’s how it all happens. Therefore, this kind of happiness is not lasting and is very horrifying.
