Events happen, deeds are done…

Everyone smiles in the same language.

Even more important, perhaps, is the fact that the basic understanding that no one is a doer — that, in the words of the Buddha, “events happen, deeds are done, consequences happen, but there is no individual doer of any deed” — in one moment, relieves us of the usual load of guilt and shame for our ‘immoral’ or unsuccessful actions, and pride and arrogance for our success.

Also, perhaps more importantly, we know that we simply do not have to carry the usual burden of hatred and malice towards the ‘other’ whom we would otherwise consider to be the cause of our hurt or misfortune. The understanding is based on the total acceptance that if we are hurt, we are hurt because, for some reason which we simply cannot know, we were supposed to be hurt according to the all-pervading cosmic law that applies to everything in the universe, from the smallest atom to the largest planet or star.

In other words, it would be downright stupid to hate anyone — any particular body-mind organism — through which the act that hurt us had happened, again, according to the same cosmic law.
