(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
GRATITUDE WILL INHIBIT THE CREATION OF KARMIC OBSTACLES
Caller: Master Lu, you once said “To inhibit the creation of karmic obstacles, firstly, we should gain self-discipline. Secondly, we should always have gratitude.” May I ask, why having gratitude is so effective in inhibiting the creation of karmic obstacles?
Master Jun Hong Lu: It is very simple. When you feel thankful towards a person, will you still get angry with him? If you are thankful for your husband, will you still quarrel with him or hold any grudges against him? If you are thankful to everyone, would you still perform any evil act? You wouldn’t, right? With such a remarkable amount of gratitude in you, it is impossible for you to do anything evil to them. This explains how the creation of karmic obstacle is inhibited.< About Spiritual Cultivation
