“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage.”
The Buddha taught that there are three kinds of Right Intention,
which counter three kinds of wrong intention. These are:
- The intention of renunciation, which counters the intention of desire.
- The intention of good will, which counters the intention of ill will.
- The intention of harmlessness, which counters the intention of harmfulness.
To renounce is to give up or let go of something, or to disown it. The real issue is not objects or possessions themselves, but our attachment to them. If you give away things but are still attached to them, you haven’t really renounced them.
Goodwill is metta or loving kindness.
Cultivate Bodhichitta, it is the compassionate wish to realize enlightenment for the sake of others. It becomes the purest of Right Intentions; the motivating force that keep us on the Path.
