|It is the same
with regard to why the entire universe
exists, why it is happening. What is
the ultimate reason why the universe - the sun, the
moon, the stars, the earth, the oceans, the mountains,
the houses, all objects of enjoyment - why all these
exist? The inner cause is the minds of those sentient
beings who live in this universe, who experience these
objects is the ultimate reason. This is why all these
exist, why the universe itself exists.
And what is the inner cause? It is the intention that is
sentient beings minds: karma.
The same is true of this physical body,
which came from the physical cause of the combination of
the mothers egg and the fathers sperm. But there is a
reason why the egg and the sperm came together. It is
important to understand why they come together, what
makes them come together, thus resulting in this body
you have now. The common peoples understanding are the
sexual contact, resulting in sperm and egg
But the main cause is your own karma, your own
mind. Your own karma, your own mind is the
ultimate reason why. Since this rebirth is a good one
with many opportunities to achieve happiness, then it
came from good karma, your positive virtuous intention.
The reason exists. So therefore, you now understand the
reason why the egg and sperm cometogether and become the
body. You can see that the reason exists prior to the
result, prior to the egg and sperm coming together. The
reason that exists prior to the result is the cause.
Thus, you can see that your mind exists before your
present body is formed in your mothers womb.
Therefore, there must be past lives, and if there are
past lives, then there must also be future lives.
Even when the body disintegrates, the mind continues
always. Therefore there must be future lives.
There is a continuity of the physical body through
time: the egg and
sperm come from the physical bodies of the mother and
father. Similarly, the mind, which is formless and
colorless and shapeless, also has it own continuity
that is of similar type, that is also formless,
colorless, and shapeless. Thus, the formless mind, which
took its place with the fertilized egg, came from its
own previous continuity, the life before this one.
Therefore, you can see that there must be past
The conclusion is that without enough good karma,
without virtuous action, the cause, one will be unable
to have good feng-shui, a good environment, location,
habitation, and so on. Even good feng-shui depends on
good karma. Also, one will even be unable to find a good
feng-shui expert to help correct ones own feng-shui in
life. Therefore, success and happiness in this life and
success, peace, and happiness beyond this life up to the
perfect fully completed bliss and peace of full
enlightenment all depend on creating good karma,
collecting merit, practicing Dharma, and keeping your
life attitude in pure, positive virtue.
