Via Sri Prem Baba: Flor do Dia- Flor del Día - Flower of the Day 22/10/2015

“A palavra “pecado”, por ter sido mal utilizada e distorcida, gera um grande estranhamento. Na essência, pecado é sinônimo de equívoco. E enquanto houver desamor nesse mundo haverá equívocos. O desamor que se manifesta através de pensamentos, palavras e ações equivocados gera consequências ou karmas. A felicidade que buscamos a partir de um estado interior equivocado faz com que plantemos sementes contaminadas e consequentemente colhamos aquilo que plantamos. Se você planta sofrimento, você colhe sofrimento.”

Si plantas sufrimiento, cosechas sufrimiento.”

“The word ‘sin’ has been poorly used; it's been so distorted that it has created a huge estrangement between us and this word. The word sin literally means "to miss the mark," or simply, making a mistake. And as long as we still have a lack of love in this world, we will have mistakes. This un-love that manifests through our thoughts, words, and mistaken actions generates consequences known as karma. Happiness that is sought from a misguided inner state leads us to plant contaminated seeds. Being that we reap what we sow, then if we plant suffering, we will reap suffering.”
