If one regularly engages in killing in this life, then one tends to like killing when one’s old enough to discern right from wrong in the next life. If one likes drinking alcohol in this life, then one will like it as well in the next life; this habit will persist in every life. One’s behavior in this life is similar to that of in the next life, this is referred to as causally concordant behavioural result. The buddha taught this; today, of the people who can recollect their pervious lives, many of them have such inclination, such as liking smoking both in previous life and this life.
