Description

Most people are very careful that their mobile phone doesn't run out of battery. Or they worry that their Tesla is out of power before they reach the next charging station ('range anxiety'). They are concerned that thay run out of money, or that the suparmarket may run out of food with current global supply chain issues.

And sure enough, we should be careful and prepare so that we don't run into trouble.

However, even more important is that we don't run out of Good Karma!

All the good things in life we enjoy are part of our accumulated good karma ('puñña'). If we didn't have any good karma, we wouldn't have any happy experiences. But whenever we enjoy good food, material wealth, caring and friendly relationships, we're using up some of the accumulated puñña. If we don't create any new puñña, we will run out one day, and will be in much bigger trouble than being stranded with an empty tank in our car.

Our concern to constantly 'recharge' good karma should be even stronger than our worries about keeping the cell phone charged!www.dhammagiri.netwww.youtube.com/channel/UCJINt0JJBfFm_x0FZcU9QJwwww.tinyletter.com/dhammagiri/archive
