HAVE SELF-CONTROL OVER OUR MIND AND THOUGHTS
Master Jun Hong Lu: Buddhist Dharma teaches us to exercise self-control over our mind and thoughts. If a person’s mind is filled with negative thoughts, he will be defiled and gradually find himself embedded in a negative environment.
On the other hand, a person who is able to exert control over his mind and thoughts will be able to devote himself to being proactive, kind and compassionate towards people and matters around him. As such, he would be able to attract favourable, positive and kind people and things into his life. Those who are always performing kind deeds attract others to join them in performing good deeds while those who are always reprimanding others will be side-lined.
Practising Buddhism means being proactively kind; one must control one’s thoughts. Remember, those who can control their tempers and avoid anger and desires, can change their destinies. A basic concept in cultivation is to let go; to use positive energy to help you live in this world, so that you can experience the beauty of sunshine every day.
