Wrong Choices

I keep choosing the path of least resistance. I keep choosing the quick fix. Why? Do I really not believe that I will end up in the lower realms?

Whatever fruit ripens may I eat it with no complaint. May I accept my fate with ardency and a determination to improve my lot. How much hubris to soak of freeing other beings when I can’t even free myself from my own misdeeds! My akusala kamma rates away at me as rust, produce by the self-same iron eats itself away.
