Yesterday, I said that 'Right Action' is largely determined by the intent of the heart ...
Our hearts judge whether conduct is likely to be helpful and healthful to others and to ourselves, or likely to cause harm ... Our hearts are the judge even if, ultimately, the outcome is not quite what was expected.
But our Buddhist Practice, our Zazen, day by day changes the heart ... creating a heart better able to see what is 'Right' and beneficial.
So, it is mutual: 'Right Action', living by the Precepts nourishes our Zazen ... and our Zazen nourishes a heart that knows 'Right Action'.
