Sometimes, when you are doing wrong things, you might not even realize and you are always look for excuses to escape and run away.
If you never admit on your wrong doings, you are not going to improve yourself. If you are always run away, you are unable to face the “truth” of you.
Say, if you are late to class or work or meeting, how do you feel?
Do you feel sorry and apologize to people who are waiting for you?
Do you feel like no issues for others to wait for you?
Basically, to know whether you are taking right or wrong action, you just need to take deep breath, be silence and listen to the voices from your consciences. You know the best answer!
Your right action will always bring benefit to yourself and also others. If there is only benefit to yourself only, it’s not a right decision.
I’ve taken precepts, before I made any decisions by just follow my unwholesome thoughts, immediately, a “Guard” will appear in my mind to stop my action. It’s just like auto-program in my mind.
There is no issue to make error or mistake in life as long as we are really to admit, repent and ready to make a change in life.
“All wrong-doing arises because of mind. If mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?” by Buddha
