Where does my actions on self go ?

Postby purple planet » Fri Mar 29, 2013 1:36 am

I can see karma in action on others for instance - if i am nice it affects others and they will be nicer later to me i can see how its not excatly what you put is what you get - and how some of it might come later - maybe in a next life ect
i can see how if you improve someone elses life his life is better now and he is less angry = less chance he will blame you for his trobule ect .... and much more examples that i can see how your actions affect your surroundings

but what effect those it have on me ? how come i meditate and put a lot of effort in it and i come back to the start to 0 ? doesnt it have an effect ? how come the actions of for example 3+4=0 ?

my question in short : is there cause and effect in meditation ? if so how can i put so much time and effort in and still no increase in mindfulness where is the cause and effect here ?
Please send merit to my dog named Mika who has passed away - thanks in advance

In order to make sure one'll make progress with their meditation, it's important that they need to put effort into observing the Five Precepts. Without a good solid foundation in Sila, one could spend lots of time meditate and it still won't give the result one's looking for..

And what is right speech? Abstaining from lying, from divisive speech, from abusive speech, & from idle chatter: This is called right speech.
