Discussion Topics

  1. 既然是這樣,我們若做了什麼舉止動作,同樣我們也有一個結果,也是有一個感受。我們所做的結果,我們既然有感受,我們就不要讓別人有所感受。所以這是自受、使人受,這叫做同理心

    Whatever our behavior, whatever actions we take, there will be results. We will experience and feel the results of all our actions. Since we have suffered, we do not want to cause others to suffer as well. When we feel what others feel, this is empathy.  Question:  When we wish ill for someone else...when we wish someone else to suffer..but don't actually commit the deed (or instigate someone else to do it for us)...according to the above statement:  What happens?

  2. When we do truly feel EMPATHY for suffering... what is this called? (page 3).  How does this relate to Cause and Effect or: Whatever our behavior, whatever actions we take, there will be results

  3. "We practitioners must be like turtles, or like a kingdom with a fortress. If the outside world challenges us, we should not let it defeat us."  In Tzu Chi we encounter Great Challenges in the Four Missions.  How doe these challenges that we face make us like a turtle?
