DISCOURSE ON THE IMPORTANCE OF CORRECTING ONE’S BAD HABITS / MISTAKES
Master Jun Hong Lu:
Dear listeners and friends, please remember, it’s difficult to kick one’s bad habits, but if there’s no pain, there will be no gain. Many bad habits were developed when we were young and it becomes harder to change over time. When one dislikes being taken advantage of when one is young, the feeling will intensify as one grows older. Eventually, one will find oneself in a dire state. As humans, we have to learn to correct our mistakes. We have to admit our mistakes as long as we are in the wrong. Do not be caught up in any justifications you may have, trying to redeem yourself for the mistakes you made. Admit your mistakes instantaneously to avoid a downward spiral that will lead to more mistakes. Trying to deny your mistakes will only jeopardize your health and hurt others. It also shows that you are incorrigible. At times, matters could arise as a result of Karma. Thus, it’s pointless trying to find a reasonable explanation. If you have bullied someone in your previous life, you are bound to be bullied by that person in this life. This is the logic of the fact. I hope everyone can learn from it.
