Your life will be full of positive energy only when you are guided by aspirations. Otherwise, you will be led by the nose by your afflictions and delusions.

Q: How do I eradicate ignorance? Afflictions keep arising even though I attain enlightenment to some extent time and again. What should I do? 

A: How do we have a kettle of water boil up? Keep heating it up till it is boiled. If the water is heated up for one minute and then put aside to cool off for ten days, and then heated again for thirty seconds, and abandoned again to cool off for half a month, the water will never get boiled. 


Q: Recently I become pessimistic, always feeling something bad may happen. Such thoughts, whenever arising, vex me a lot. I find my mind in a mess, with positive thoughts and evil thoughts all mingled together. How can I live an optimistic life? 

A: Aspiration is the key. Your life will be full of positive energy only when you are guided by aspirations. Otherwise, you will be led by the nose by your afflictions and delusions. 


Q: Master, is killing in video games counted as a killing act in the literal sense? Please show mercy and instruct me, Master! 

A: It's not a killing in the literal sense, but it consolidates your thoughts about killing. 


Q: Master, I often feel scared. Can you help me figure out the reason? 

A: It's because you think too much but do too little. Try to accumulate more merits by doing good deeds and combating distorted thinking, you will feel at ease.
