Little by little, wean yourself.
This is the gist of what i have to say.
From an embryo, whose nourishment comes in the blood,
move to an infant drinking milk,
to a child on solid food,
to a searcher after wisdom,
to a hunter of more invisible game.
Think how it is to have a conversation with an embryo.
You might say, “The world outside is vast and intricate.
There are wheatfields and mountain passes,
and orchards in bloom.
At night there are millions of galaxies, and in the sunlight
the beauty of friends dancing at a wedding..”
You ask the embryo why he, or she, stays cooped up
in the dark with eyes closed.
Listen to the answer
There is no “other world”.
I only know what ive experienced.
You must be hallucinating.
As she has planted, so does she harvest; such is the field of karma. ~Sri Guru Granth Sahib
Like gravity, karma is so basic we often don’t even notice it. ~Sakyong Mipham
Belief in karma ought to make the life pure, strong, serene, and glad. Only our own deeds can hinder us; only our own will can fetter us. Once let men recognize this… truth, and the hour of their liberation has struck. Nature cannot enslave the soul that by wisdom has gained power and uses both in love. ~Annie Besant
As the blazing fire reduces wood to ashes, similarly, the fire of Self-knowledge reduces all Karma to ashes. ~Bhagavad Gita” —
