Sometimes, some of us might do “WRONG” thing and assume “Nobody know, nobody see” about it.
E.g. Throw rubbish in the street, pluck flowers in the garden, pluck fruits from other people garden……
I read a story about a father & son, they’ve travelled for a long journey. They were so thirsty.
They passed by a water melon farm.
The father asked the son, ” Go and pluck the watermelon, nobody is here and nobody know.”
The son answered: ” Father, somebody is watching……”
The father asked: “WHO?”
The son answered: ” our MIND”
This is so profound!
We might assume we can do wrong thing when nobody know but we might not notice our MIND IS WATCHING us all the time.
You might escape from other’s judgement… How about yourself?
Do not live in remorse. Be mindfulness on your action!
Whether our action is wholesome or unwholesome depends on whether that action or deed arises from a disciplined or undisciplined state of mind. It is felt that a disciplined mind leads to happiness and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering, and in fact it is said that bringing about discipline within one’s mind is the essence of the Buddha’s teaching.
