(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
HOW TO DEAL WITH VEXATIONS BROUGHT ABOUT IN THE COURSE OF PURSUING COMFORT IN LIFE
Caller: In our pursuit of a comfortable life, we often have to work hard and deliberate on many issues, resulting in increasing vexations. How do we strike the balance between our life and troubles caused by the material world we are in? Hope Master Lu could enlighten us.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Do not succumb to greed. Always say to yourself: “I am happy with what I have. I do not need more, thank you.” By doing so, you will not be greedy. It is greed that intensifies your acquisitive drive and leads you to pursue endlessly. Eventually, you will have more vexations. The best way to avoid such vexations is to be content and let go of what you have been clinging on. A person who is pre-occupied with discontentment and unhappiness is in a way mentally unsound. Do you understand?
Caller: Yes, I do. Thank you for enlightening us, Master Lu.< About Spiritual Cultivation
