Many have made Promises or Vows to the Divine, in return for sentient materialistic returns for a Perceived Luxurious, famous, lifestyle!
How many times do you think you can make false vows or promises?
Of course the contents of your vows or promises played critical roles.
In recent event, GM Lu shared how he made vows or dedications daily.
Please refer to :
AA: It's all method of convenience gm sharing now
as long as don't force
Not yours then don't use force
BB: yes, i love that advice
AA: GM shared his daily dedication
All for others :)
my dedication at the end of cultivation also same n for the well being of all :)
That's most important
Fellow student made vows to establish a chapter if he was given the resources to do so.
O! His finances improves tremendously after that!
BUT, he forgot his vows and used the funds for fast cars, gold and diamond watches, and a "wealthy" Lifestyle.
Of course, his finances crash!
Then he promised to support dharma propagation.
That lasted for less than a year!
The last time I saw this student, the animal spirit had taken over or seized control of him!
He has the ox aura with curved horns pointing forward!
Face contorted too, with a mean and cruel look.
But, there was fear in his eyes!
Please do not make vows or promises that you not steadfast enough to fulfil!
The Divine can give to you and also can strip you bare!
