One / Repercussions


Part of our future is governed by the work which we do at this moment. This in turn is governed by the work which we have done in the past.

Everything we do generates repercussions. If we undertake unnecessary actions, the repercussions are generally more than we can foresee, or handle. If we undertake necessary actions, the repercussions are inevitable and we can take them into account.

If we undertake an intentional act in service of an aim, the repercussions include those which we wish to generate. Hence the aphorisms: Honour necessity, Honour sufficiency and Do as little as possible and as much as necessary.
