业果 : 思已业

这个业是什么?思、思已业,就是你思心所,当你起心动念的时候,这已经在这地方了。由于起心动念,然后你形之于身口,哪里说只戒那个身口的?你心里面胡思乱想,不管你做得再好,胡思乱想没有用。不管你行持得多好,你的心里面老去东……像猴,心猿意马地乱转的话,这也不相应啊!这是我们要了解的。

【The Varieties of Karma】 - Karma is the intended action

What is this karma?  Karma is intention and also is the intended action.  It is when your mind contemplates and processes, (when your thoughts arise) you are already there.  Your thoughts will be carried out  by your body actions and speech.   Thus, who says that ethical discipline is limited to only the body and the speech?  If your thoughts run wild, then no matter how great your deeds are, it would not count as your thoughts are running everywhere.  No matter how great your conduct is, if your mind continues to be...like a monkey, if your mind is restless like a capering monkey and a galloping horse, there is no concordance!  This is what we should understand.
