Pomegranate: An Observation On Karma--ZenMoon

"We are not a victim of any randomness
nor are we the “winner” of some random “lottery.” 

There is a lovely new pomegranate fruit on my bonsai pomegranate tree. The pomegranate is symbolic of abundance and prosperity. I am reminded how impossible it is to know exactly when or how we planted the seeds in our past. All that can be seen is the fruit in the present. It is too easy to celebrate or lament about the sweet and/or bitter fruit and forget that we ourselves had planted its seeds. We are not a victim of any randomness nor are we the “winner” of some random “lottery.”

"While we still exist in the Karmic realm,
both the positive and negative Karma
shall come and go."

Live in the Dharma in the present and fully experience life with informed awareness. Experience life in each moment with full awareness and acknowledgement of both the sweet and bitter fruit. While we still exist in the Karmic realm, both the positive and negative Karma shall come and go. In the here and now, living with the Pure Mind and compassion shall spontaneously propagate the sweet fruits and negate the bitter ones. We are our own saviours and ultimately chart our own path to for transcendence of Samara.

For most of us, the phrase “sitting in meditation” refers to the practice of physically sitting still and and re-focusing our attention to the present moment. Living with the true Zen meaning of sitting in meditation, we effortlessly exist at inner peace while at rest and while in motion. Within the true state of sitting in mediation, we live within the life stream at full awareness and adaptively respond to the life circumstances with our Inner Light and an universal compassion.

In order to truly understand the root of our sufferings, we must recognize the nature of our own mind and how our response the outer world impact our life journey. We are the product of our own doings. We create our future circumstances with each choice we make, along the life path.

It is only when One recognise that both permanence and impermanence are confined within Karmic life’s innate duality, that One is ultimately set free from discriminating thoughts.

It is only by transcending the discriminating mind’s reality that we can exist in the uncorrupt, non-dualistic actuality.
