It is necessary to cultivate some discipline of mind, for an undisciplined mind always finds excuses to act selfishly and thoughtlessly. When the mind is undisciplined, the body is also undisciplined, and so is speech and action.

For there is suffering, but none who suffers;
Doing exists although there is no doer;
Extinction is but no extinguished person;
Although there is a path, there is no goer.

– Buddhaghosa; Visuddhimagga [513]

And better than a hundred years
lived without seeing
arising and passing away, is
one day
lived seeing
arising and passing away.

“The results of karma cannot be known by thought, and so should not be speculated about. Thus, thinking, one would come to distraction and distress.

“Therefore, Ananda, do not be the judge of people; do not make assumptions about others. A person is destroyed by holding judgments about others.”

– Anguttura Nikaya
