Although a wholesome or harmful act may have been minute while it was
still a mere motivation,
by the time it yields its result it will have grown considerably.
Harmful deeds lead to miserable states of existence;
wholesome deeds lead to happy ones.
None of your deeds will be impotent.
You will not experience the results of that which you have not done
