Actions are the ground on which I stand.

by jbkeenanjr

I’m of the nature to grow old. There is no way to escape growing old.

 

I am of the nature to have ill health. There is no way to escape having ill health.

 

I am of the nature to die. There is no way to escape death.

 

All that is dear to me and everything I have and everything I love are of the nature to change. There is no way to escape from losing them.

 

My actions are my only true belongings. I cannot escape the consequences of my actions. My actions are the ground on which I stand.

 

Upajjhatthana Sutra of the Buddha:
