so if i watch in youtube those videos that show when you search "random acts of kindness" im creating some good kamma /merit for myself ?
I used to watch a lot of inspiring videos, read inspiring texts, etc. but over time came down with apathy. At first, I couldn't understand whence that apathy.
Then I have found that it is easier, more prosperous and more uplifting to do good things myself than to merely watch other people do good things.
Like someone remarked once: “Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It's not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it's a day you've had everything to do and you've done it.”
