|Wise attention and wise reflection|
|There are five natural laws or orders: seasons, seeds, mind, karma, and Dharma.|
- When humankind is demoralized through greed, famine is the natural outcome;
- when moral degeneration is due to ignorance, epidemic is the inevitable result;
- when hatred is the demoralizing force, widespread violence is the ultimate outcome.
|Nature is sacred and spiritual (jiuzhaigou1/tenlivingcities.org)|
If and when humankind realizes that large scale devastation has taken place as a result of our moral degeneration, a change of heart takes place among the few surviving human beings. With gradual moral re-generation, conditions improve through a long period of cause and effect and humankind again starts to enjoy gradually increasing prosperity and longer life.
