DO NOT BE “HANDICAPPED” BY YOUR HEART

Master Jun Hong Lu: In reality, many of us are by no means handicapped.  However, our hearts are indeed so.  When asked to perform recitation of scriptures, many complain: 

“I am not able to rise in the morning. I can’t do it.”

“I am very tired.”

“I have no time.”

Even if you have the healthiest body now, you may still be encountering various life obstacles and challenges in this human realm.  When such moments of downcast occur, that is when you will slowly start to feel dejected. It is your lack of faith, courage, and single-mindedness that make you disheartened and incapable of starting anew.

“A Buddhist cultivator should not wallow himself in self-pity.  Be strict to yourself when it comes to observing the precepts and repenting; reflect on what has caused our life’s troubles. Only then will you be released by your faint heart.”
