We Are The Way We Are

We’ve come out the way we have because of our ingredients.
Those ingredients are karma – the result of previous experiences and reactions.

What do we do then?
We change the ingredients by dropping old karma – habitual reactions.

How do we do that?
By being aware of the effect our previous experiences are having on us now.

Does it work?
This depends on the individual, but the Buddha did say that the first precept is to acknowledge suffering.

But I’m not suffering!
As long as an I is involved, we will take things personally, and therefore, we’re in conflict and suffer.

So, what do we do now?
See if our ingredients are fresh. Fresh experiences is always present, when we don’t just react with the same old ingredients.

We are what we are when we just is 😀
