My last blog was about creating a happy future by taking responsibility for your own actions, words, and images (thoughts) within the field you recognize. In this blog I‘ll explain about deepening that practice.
Action – Remorse – Gratitude – Praise
In Buddhist Sutras it says that a person has 840 million thoughts a day; maybe some of them are positive thoughts and maybe some of them are negative thoughts. We then speak and make actions from those thoughts.
When a person decides on a happy future and performs some action (or says or imagines it — it’s all the same at the Ki level), in that moment, the person needs to be careful about the effects of their action. How that action affects the field in front of them, the field they are in. If that action makes people around them relaxed, motivated, energized, or even feel lighter or brighter, then that action is surely creating a happy future. But it doesn’t always happen that way; sometimes an action makes someone feel anger, fear, or sadness, or makes them feel tense, insecure, or uncomfortable; in that case, the field of Ki has been lowered and this will have the effect of making the future darker, even if that wasn’t the intention.
So, if we want to have a happy future, we have to be responsible for our actions, and how our actions affect the field in front of us.
Of course, sometimes it might seem easy, and sometimes it is difficult. And when something doesn’t go as we thought it would, it feels as though you want to say things like: “I’m not wrong,” “It’s because of the situation/because of that person/because of … ,” — there’s a very sweet temptation to make excuses about it or blame someone else. But in this moment, if you can hold back those excuses and check your action and the result of your action calmly, and think “I’m responsible for this outcome,” this is the only way to grow spiritually.
I’ll explain each step in my blog soon.
Each of these steps is connected to the Wisdom of the Universe.
