【Karma】- We will still suffer even if we stop to take actions
If we are frightened and stop here, this does not mean, ah! Since you are frightened, you stop and don't do anything, and so your problems are resolved! [No.] If you stop because of fear, you will forever have to bear inestimable suffering. Therefore, from this we should understand that there is only one path: one can only strive to advance. Like this. When you do strive to advance, you need not be so fearful. What's really important is that you should be afraid of not obtaining the correct view, and that once you have obtained the correct view, you do not joyfully persevere. This is what we should be afraid of. Therefore, he told us in the below, in particular that, nah, nah, nah, if you truly practice according to the teachings, and advance according to the steps of ethical discipline, meditative concentration and wisdom, though you may not be able to uphold the ethical discipline perfectly, you will not fall into miserable realms. It tells us these criteria. This is not to say that you will not fall if you do things without care. If you do not care, you will certainly fall!
