【The Varieties of Karma】- The relationship between thoughts and karma
Once you have thought about it consciously, you will "set [it] into motion either physically or vocally." Earlier we said, this person is sitting there being foolish and dumb, and therefore this will take effect later on, like what we see in many types of animals. The clams can't even...can't even crawl. They stay put at a place. If you throw it to somewhere else, it will just stay there. The turtles are a little better because they can crawl and swim. What's the reason for this? The slower the person is in his thoughts, he will naturally act in this way. What is this referring to? Slow moving. In all areas, if you understand this point, you will be very clear and have a thorough understanding [of everything]. Note that I am not encouraging you to be very quick and agile here. The monkeys are very quick and agile but that is not necessarily good either, right? Therefore, in brief, you need to understand the difference between the virtuous and non-virtuous cause. Regardless of how small the matter is, it will be clearly and plainly displayed and revealed. This is about action.
