How do we improve our awareness about the seeds we are planting is a most basic question. I wish I had a good answer. When I'm aware of my present experience it is easier for me to notice the importance of awareness. Practicing noticing one's present experience helps one to do it more easily in the future. Meditation can be of great value. Practicing kind selflessness helps one be kinder in the future. Practicing selfishness without regard for others, helps generate more of that kind of behavior in the future. Karma seems to be very real. As either the Dalai Lama, or Gandhi said: "If you want to make others happy, be compassionate. If you want to be happy, be compassionate." I'm grateful for the opportunity to respond. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
