The Buddha Says 12 ...

Make haste in doing good;
check your mind from evil;
for the mind of him who is slow in doing
meritorious actions delights in evil.

Dhammapada IX 116

* Do not wait or hesitate in doing meritorious actions

before it is too late. Seize every opportunity.

* The defiled and untrained mind delights in indulging in unwholesome things that have their roots

in greed, hatred and delusion.

* We need to be mindful of our mental states and thoughts from moment to moment ... this then can check unwholesome states from arising and taking control of the mind.

With Metta,

Bro. Oh Teik Bin
