The worst karmas aren’t the ones we purposefully cultivate but the “careless karmas.” These are our karmic weeds. It takes a lot of effort to cultivate the garden we want. Weeds take no effort at all.

If you’ve ever tried to pull up a dandelion, you know how deep the roots are. The plant itself hurts your hand a bit, discouraging you from pulling it out. In contrast to the strength of the roots, the flower, when it seeds, scatters seed easily. A tiny puff of wind, and there will be new dandelions all over the place.

I actually love dandelions, despite using them to illustrate bad habits.
