If the action was difficult at the beginning, it becomes easier as the habit becomes more deeply ingrained. Some habits develop much more easily than others. Responding with irritation when something disagreeable happens is a very easily acquired habit. But irritation and indignation are only two of many possible responses to something disagreeable. When a driver is rude on the freeway, gesturing and firing off a sermon on the nature humanity can get to be a habit. Another option is simply moving out of the way.
The Buddha did not teach that a child suffering from disease or hunger brought this suffering upon himself. The Buddhist explanation of suffering is that a deed embedded in the continuum of consciousness eventually gives rise to consequences. The deed may have occurred in this life or many lifetimes ago. This does not imply that a suffering person is morally degenerate any more than suffering the consequences of eating contaminated food does. The suffering we experience is due to karma accumulated under the influence of delusion and mental afflictions.
The power of resolve is stopping unwholesome behavior by the strength of determination and decision. The final remedial power is purification. This is also called "applying the antidote," and entails doing something that counteracts or neutralizes the negative deed. For example, if the deed involved killing, applying the antidote would be protecting life. Buddhist tradition teaches that through the four remedial powers it is possible to completely extinguish the potency of even the most virulent deeds.
