(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
HOW DO WE CHOOSE WHEN WE ARE FACED WITH MULTIPLE OPTIONS IN LIFE?
Caller: Master Lu, you mentioned before that life is about making choices. However, we often need wisdom to make wise choices. At times, we are in a position where our state of mind is being put to the test. Due to the lack of wisdom, it may appear that all options look equally appealing. How do we go about making a choice under such circumstances? Master Lu, please enlighten us.
Master Jun Hong Lu: When it comes to making choices, there are many types. Some are made based on your conscience, whereas some are based on your inherent nature. The correct option is the one made based on your Buddha nature. Therefore, never choose the one that is against your conscience, no matter how advantageous it may appear to you. Conversely, if the matter in hand benefits sentient beings, though it may not appear to be advantageous to you, you should make that choice. Any choice made based on your Buddha nature will assure you of karmic rewards in the future. On the contrary, if you make one based on your self-interests, though you may reap immediate rewards, you will surely pay a high price in the future.< About Spiritual Cultivation
