How to consider your own and those of others
October 3rd 2017
Having heard of the laws of karma, some people become indifferent in the face of other people’s suffering. If they see a good and honest person suffer they say to themselves that their suffering must be due to a past incarnation where they made mistakes that they now have to repair, and so they do nothing to help them. But perhaps they are wrong... When such people see others suffer, they always think it is justified, but when they themselves suffer, they feel that they do not deserve such injustice. So what is the right attitude to have? Exactly the opposite: when you are suffering, tell yourself this suffering is most probably justified; but when others are suffering, tell yourself they are not guilty and try to understand and help them. This way of doing things will help your evolution greatly.
