In a modern world characterized by insensitivity to the suffering of others, numbness to violence, disregard of sexual misconduct, and profit-and-image-driven decision-making. Venerable Master Hsing Yun's inspirational words serve to redirect our focus into our own spiritual well-being. He teaches that everything happens in a moment of thought, and we need to be conscious of this simple truth. The Master reminds us that a moment of reflection contains within it a lifetime of consequence. The discourses in this book cover a wide variety of subjects, including further reflections on the effect we have on others; the relationship between the past, present, and future; and the importance of right mindfulness in living a successful life. Despite this seeming diversity, this common thread runs throughout the book: now, in this very moment, we have the power to make decisions with favorable and enduring effects.
