Conversations with Zoe and Buddha: Resolution

Buddha: We wish to speak with you today about resolution and a resolute day.

Many of you have set New Year resolutions. You are thinking and feeling about what you want and don’t want. This is fine. In fact it can become a good practice. So, let’s make it so.

Resolution- decision without question. Desire to carry thought form into life through action and emotional and mental dedication.

Resolute day-a day where you decide you will resolve on action and remain dedicated to your course or your decision despite what others matters come your way.

Can you see and feel how learning this may help you in times to come? We can. So try. Take one thing today and be resolute. Unite with mind and emotion and make action from this healthy union.

This is all for today.

Conversation with Buddha and Zoe: It Simply Is (Part 3)

Buddha: So once peace has been established, once there is recognition of it is, then there can be resolution. But this resolution need not be the end point, for what does this resolution mean? In some cases the end of suffering will come from having peace with what simply is. When the mind can let that go there can be an immediate and everlasting end of suffering with this issue. However, in other cases this will not be so.

There will be an immediate end of suffering and then there will come the realisation that action, rightful action, action borne out of the desire to end forms of suffering entering into one’s life, to end one’s karma with these particular issues will ensue. An example is, “Why, why, why, this hurts, this hurts, this hurts. I want this car, why can’t I have it. I feel so unhappy I can’t have this car. Life is poor, I am poor.”

When there is an understanding of it, there will be a resolution and for some this will mean an acceptance that a perception of poverty is acceptable. And for others there will be the understanding that, ‘Yes, it is and this is not the way I wish to live my life therefore I will take action’. But rightful actions are very different from the actions coming from the needs to satisfy our desires that will lead to suffering. So some actions will end suffering, some actions will lead to suffering.

This is why we ask you to consider the concept of rightful action. Does this lead me out of my karma of pain or does this lead me into another karma of pain? How does one distinguish which is which? One simply knows. If one is unsure one finds a place of stillness and asks the question once more. There is nothing difficult in this. If one is unwilling to find a place of stillness to ask a question of oneself, then one is creating karma of pain and suffering. This must be made clear. This is the end of this lesson.
