DISCOURSE ON CORRECTING WEAKNESSES
Master Jun Hong Lu: Listeners, please remember it is painful to correct one’s weaknesses. But there cannot be any gains made without this pain. Many of your shortcomings are a result of wrong doings in the past. It is extremely difficult to correct your bad habits, as many were developed and have existed since you were young. When you dislike being taken advantage of during your younger years, you will never want to be taken advantage of after you have grown up. However, if unaddressed this will end up causing you to suffer greater losses.
Therefore, we have to learn to correct our weaknesses. If you have made a mistake, no matter what, admit it. If you are in the wrong, admit your error and do not become embroiled in the situation. If we desperately fight and try to push all of the blame away, it will lead to more wrong doings.
You will be the first to get hurt, and then, you will hurt others. A person who has refused to admit his or her mistake is considered to be incorrigible. You also have to come to terms with the fact there is simply no way to explain some actions, as they happen purely due to karma.
(For example), you may have bullied someone in your previous life, which has now resulted in you being bullied in this life. If you acted badly towards a person in your previous life, he or she will certainly treat you badly in this life. I hope everyone can understand this logic.< About Spiritual Cultivation
