Question: As you see it, what is the best way to walk through this world?
Answer from Bhikkhu Sumano:
Your way. You must pursue your life according to the stream of your karma, which will pretty much dictate the manner and mode of your life. It will incline you toward particular vocations and obscure openings into others. That's your karmic destiny. But if all you do is go along with ikt it, you won't have much spiritual leverage on your life. You will be pushed from behind by a litany of 'likes' which you will go after and 'dislikes which you will turn away from.
When you have matured enough to reflect upon your life experience - and at this point meditation is very helpful - you will be able to gain a greater perspective and see a larger horizon at the frontier of human potentiality. You will begin to see that there is a grander life outside the limitations of one's karmic inheritance.
