Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

Effect of Action is not fixed, but Modifiable by new Action:



Painful effects of past wrong action is reduced by future right action.
Painful effects of past wrong action is enhanced by more wrong action.
Pleasurable effects of past right action is reduced by new wrong action.
Pleasurable effects of past right action is enhanced by right action now.

Behaviour (kamma) is almost always mixed: Sometimes good, often bad!
Later effects are thus similarly mixed: Sometimes pleasure, often pain...
Good begets good & dilutes & delays evil. Evil begets evil & delays good!

Instant Karma in Action! Thus Don't do Evil!

Comments:
The fact that he let go of the cat just a little tooo late, thus getting rotation
in his body, so suddenly the inertia is outward for his body and inward for the
cat, is an a priori kammically conditioned high probability for a sub-second delay,
which is a prime example how kamma works: Slightly different timing and the
outcome is entirely different than wanted by the evil intending actor...
He thereby - despite his will - puts himself in the water! The cat is wholly passive
and thus kammically neutral. A Wise Feline & a Foolish Boy with equally foolish
parents standing by to watch and even video this wrong!

Kamma can be Modified!
