Collective Karma

The universe that we inhabit and our shared perception of it are the results of a common karma. Likewise, the places that we will experience in future rebirths will be the outcome of the karma that we share with the other beings living there. The actions of each of us, human or nonhuman, have contributed to the world in which we live. We all have a common responsibility for our world and are connected with everything in it.

~His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama

James's comment: We are all brothers, sisters, parents, children. Interconnected in every breath, word and action. Indeed we have a collective consciousness and karma that requires we all work together for the good of humanity, the world and our greater Universe.

-Peace to all beings-

very nice. what is your idea of attachment to this world? to be attached or to detach oneself?

I would say the middle path. It is fine to enjoy some pleasures and such in life. However, to balance it out by letting go of the stuff that really blocks our path.

One more thought, Suzuki Roshi said, "Renunciation is not giving up the things of this world, but accepting that they go away."

I totally agree and this is why I would like to share this, it all starts with one person to change the world. And be the change you want to see in the world. Share my message:
