Sometimes, we are unaware about our action will bring suffering in others life.
One of the morning, when I am cooking, a thought arisen and it was great for sharing. Imagine, if you are a chef, you are preparing and cook for your customers. You are putting in a lot of msg, preservatives, artificial flavouring and other’s harmful substances. You might give excuses that customers love it, I can earn more profits and thousand of excuses.
Are you aware that your action is bringing disaster to other’s health. In a long run, your customers might get sick like, cancer, tumour, heart disease and others. As such, we must be mindful in our action.
No matter how many thousand times we vow “May all beings be well and happy!”. We must practice and take this vow seriously to safeguard our action. Always look inward, and ensure our action bring happiness to other’s life.
Another example, if you are cheating others in order to bring benefits to yourself, you might assume you are so “Smart” and laughed at other’s stupidity. Think about it, who are losing the most? The person you are cheating, might lost some money but you are losing dignity as a human being.
Be ready to bear responsibility from your action.
