Buddhism Day by Day: We Ought Not Be Swayed by the Negative
“In the course of Buddhist practice, various things arise on account of the negative cause and tendencies in our own lives. There may be times when we think, What did I do to deserve this? But we should not be swayed every time such phenomena arises; for the end. We should regard as training everything that happens to us in our practice to reach the destination of happiness.”
