【The Varieties of Karma】 - read up on biographies to spur oneself
Thus usually, other than reading this treatise here, prior to understanding the rationales, you must certainly read more cause and effect stories like these, and also the biographies of the past masters. The biographies of the past masters will always spur us, "Ah, that's how the past masters have been!" After one reads it, one really....Every time I read the biography of the past masters, I always can't help it, I can never hold back my tears. Sometimes I would let myself go and cry. This would make me feel slightly happier. When I think of them, it would spur me. Then when I read the cause and effect stories, the classic examples are right there and they are saying you just can't indulge yourself! The frame of mind [or emotional state] is just like that. As soon as your mind moves, things immediately come about.
