When one loves, one IS love. When one smiles, one IS smiles. When one is happy, one IS happiness. When one is sad, one IS sadness. When one hates, one IS hatred. When one is angry, one IS anger. When one is kind, one IS kindness. The duration of these & other experiences last as long as they last and one IS them as long as they last. When one allows them to BE present and expressed in oneself, one becomes them. They write themselves upon the person experiencing them, - in as permanent an ink as the duration and effects from them press, endure and are republished.
Likewise when one sins, one IS sin. It becomes oneself and becomes more permanent with its practice, duration, repetition and effects. If one believes in forgiveness of sin, one can be relieved of it; - but those deep roots and paths which have been oneself can arise again and take hold of oneself if allowed.
No one is immune, but each has choice. The rewards and penalties of our choices are 'built-in'. We also have choices then - to continue or not. The effects also 'go-with' the choices we make. For most of us, tending to our own choices and their effects is a full time occupation!
