【Cultivation of the mind】- A good person still needs to put in effort
So now, there are many people who are good people. Ah-ya! When you look at them, most of the time, um, um, they do not have much temperaments, nothing much, all seem very good. However, that is just it, they cannot lift up their mental power and neither they can let go of things. Just like this. Then when they see something valuable, oh-yo, their eyes are wide open. When others scold them just a bit, they cannot take it. Then with a little something [valuable], they will come for it. It is not that they do not want to cultivate. But in the end, though you want to be freed from suffering, yet the causes continue to hover around bad karma and afflictions. How would it be possible for you to obtain a good effect! Thus you must know this very clearly, understand it very clearly. Therefore, as you understand this, you will naturally realize, “oh, right, right, right!” Now that you understand, that is when your mental power will naturally be boosted. Right! Don't let this mind just go with the flow but instead you need to put in effort.
