boundary of karma and emotion

boundary of karma and emotion

Right now since we are already living within the boundary of karma and emotion, the only way to get out of that is using karma and emotion as the path. That is the only way. This is the irony. See, you having the nightmare. Right? Somebody, I don’t know, waking you up or something like that. But when you wake up, what you have dreamed does not exist before the dream or after the dream equally. As long as you are within the boundary of karma and emotion, you cannot sort of go out of this, get a tool, come back and fight the karma. You can’t do that. So only way you can deal with this is using the karma and the emotion. So what do we do? Instead of bad karma, we end up engaging into bad karma, we try to accumulate good karma. Instead of bad emotion we try to get into the good emotion, such as love and compassion, devotion. Things like that. So what does this do? At least it gives you a little bit of – what you call it – leisure. This is what we call ???, the eighteen different kind of characters that makes the precious human body precious human body. It gives you chance, sense, it also develops a sense to really do the right thing. Doing the right thing at the moment is something like virtues thing. And then as you get more and more smart you will realize doing the right thing is actually to transcend both right and wrong.
