【The Varieties of Karma】– Observe Karma
Since it is not something you can readily see, so, in order to help us with this, especially for things we are unable to accomplish right now, what is the reason for that? The reason is that our karma is normally too weighty. The biggest reason for our karma [being too weighty] is, because we are constantly swooned by our six sensory faculties. Our mind is very coarse, as soon as we see something, we're (the mind) gone. As soon as we hear something, we're (the mind) gone. After you see something or eat something, your mind is persistently occupied by it. When some minor incidents happen with someone else, your mind keeps mulling over it, your mind is constantly redirected by sensory objects. So at that time, it would be almost impossible for you to calm your mind down, to reflect and analyze things in accordance to the teachings. At that time, the only way to help us is to read more books like these. After you read these books, it is much like personally seeing it yourself. Oh! You will see how this person, having done some really minor good, or bad, and immediately after, they encountered a great, or bad [consequence]. This would exhort us greatly in our mind, there is that much benefit!
