Buddhism's doctrine of karmic effects arising in accordance with causes and conditions may seem fair and impartial and clear in its application of fortune and misfortune, but what is most wonderful about Buddhism is the practice of repentance. The practice of repentance offers transgressors an opportunity to repent and reform. Repentance is an act of internal reflection and self-inquiry and, like Dharma water, it can wash away our negative karma.
Those who know to repent when they commit a fault will prevent even more serious negative karma from occurring, for those who know the importance of repentance are not likely to repeat their faults again so rashly. Through repentance, even those who commit the five great violations will be able to see the light of day again once the effects of their negative karma have been exhausted. There is a Buddhist saying, "lay down the butcher's knife and become a Buddha right there and then." This explains how rare and supreme the meritorious accomplishments of repentance are.
In contrast, if one commits a fault and does not repent, one may escape the sanctions of the law, but one cannot escape the prison of the mind. That is why the Buddhist belief is not that committing faults is the problem, but committing them and not reforming oneself is. There may be wrongdoing, but as long as there is sincere repentance, one can wipe away negative karma and receive back one's original, pure nature. Just as when polishing a mirror, once the dust has been cleaned, one can see one's reflection. Therefore, in one's everyday life, there is no telling how many wrongful deeds, how many wrongful words, and how many deluded thoughts have occurred, consciously or unconsciously, through our body, speech, and mind. We must always be mindful of repentance, and use Dharma water to clean our mind, for only in this way can we constantly protect our pure, bright mind.#spiritualaf #awakening #5D #raiseyourvibe #alexmyles #ascension #spiritualgangster #letitgo #quantumreality #channeler #goquantum #lightcodeactivation #npdawareness #empathsbelike #codependentnomore #divinefeminine #manifest #magick #twinflame #soulmates #timeline #metaphysics
