You can never escape from your karma. Your actions have consequences. Karma is the invisible power that balances the universe. We have all taken a different path in life but somehow we are all linked. You created your destiny. Your fate is sealed, unless you change.
What is Karma?
The definition of karma? For every action there will always be a reaction. Your actions create a ripple in the universe. Your thoughts and actions are powerful. They carry energy. They are like an echo.
Your thoughts and feelings shape the world within you. Your words and actions shape the world around you. You are constantly shaping your world, little by little.
Whatever you do will eventually come back to you.
Law of Karma
Karma is a Buddhist term which comes from Sanskrit and relates to fate, effect and action.You alone are responsible for your actions. You are responsible for your own karma.
It is the law of cause and effect, an unbreakable law of the cosmos. You deserve everything that happens to you, good or bad. You create your happiness and your misery. One day you will be in the same circumstances you put someone else in.
Your world today is just a reflection of your past. What you do today will mirror your future. Your actions create your future. What you are experiencing right now is what karma wants you to experience. Every feeling, every thought, has been prepared especially for you, so you can learn from your past. You can’t escape from your past, but you can learn from it. This will change your future.
The Invisible Factor
Let’s look at an example. Imagine a situation. Think of a person you don’t like. Think of a way to upset that person with unkind words.
Now imagine that you have executed your plan. You smile as you see this person feeling uncomfortable and eventually hurt and upset. You have just created “bad karma” for yourself.
You deliberately harmed someone. Your intentions were bad. It is intention that creates karma. Good intentions will always create “good karma”. You can hide your intentions from others but not from yourself or the universe. You are a small cog within many other cogs. When you move, you move all the other cogs.
You Will Never be Happy at Someone Else’s Expense
You came from the same source as everyone else. Do not harm others. You will never be happy if you hurt those around you. When you think you are alone there are always observers. The most important one being you.
If you take away intention then there is no karma. If you genuinely didn’t mean to harm or hurt someone then the law of karma is now absent. It is your intention that invokes karma, good or bad. No one can violate natures law of karma.
You may be powerful or weak today but your destiny can be reversed at any moment. Your life can change in an instant.
Is Karma Real?
Yes, karma is real. Karma is your bond to the past. Karma is a universal law. It cannot be broken. Karma teaches you and makes your knowledge of the world more complete. The universe wants you to understand the suffering of others. To do this your must experience life from many different perspectives. It is essential to understand why you did something and what the consequences were. A karmic experience allows you to reflect and correct your mistakes.
It is only when you step into someone else’s shoes that you begin to really understand how they feel. You will continue to have the same experiences until you learn what others feel and experience.
Your Future is an Echo of Your Past
Most people are fighting an inner battle against something you know nothing about. Therefore you must not judge them. You haven’t walked in their shoes. You don’t know what they have been through. They might have been abused, faced hardship or never been loved.Please do not judge others. If you judge, then you WILL be judged. By accepting others as they are you will NEVER be judged.
Forgive. Forgiveness relieves you from pain. It takes a great person to forgive.
Revenge will harm you. Forgiveness does not mean you are happy with what was done to you. It means that you are kind and loving enough to move on. You will be setting a great example for others.
Great things happen to those who forgive.
Be grateful! This is so important. Did you eat today? Are you healthy? Do you have shelter?
Please be grateful. Those who are thankful are happy.
Express your gratitude. It will give you amazing inner peace.
The good and bad you see in others also exists in you.
When you see good and bad in others it is just a reflection of yourself.
Always look for the good in everyone.
Give love and love comes back to you.The energy you send out ALWAYS comes back to you. If you radiate happiness and positive energy then that is what you will receive back.
That is why when you are in a good mood the world seems so beautiful. You are sending out wonderful vibrations.
What you give to others you will get yourself. If others need help and you give them very little then one day if you need help you will also receive very little.
The way others behave towards you is their karma. The way you RESPOND will determine your karma.
By now you must have understood that nothing happens by chance. Everything happens so you can learn.
The Buddha said, “The greatest achievement is selflessness“.
You Will be Tested on Everything You Say
Any criticism you make will eventually be made against you. If you want to criticize others, be prepared to for them to scrutinize you. Judgement has a negative effect. The more you judge people the more you will be judged. You haven’t lived their life’s.
Be grateful, not arrogant for any abilities you may have that are better than someone else’s. A beautiful person becomes ugly when they put down those who are not like them. There is no one in this world who is not beautiful.
There are no “other people”. We are all one. When you kick a tramp on the street you are kicking yourself. When you harm another, you are harming yourself. The law of karma transforms you into a better person. The more you aware of the meaning of life, the fewer lessons you will need before you achieve your dreams. The repetition of lessons in your life is not punishment, it is help in learning for your future.
You Don’t Have to be Seen to Make a Difference
Being kind to others is the same as being kind to yourself. Kindness gives others hope. Your inconvenience is minor if you stop to help someone. But for them it means a great deal.Kindness is the most valuable gift you can give to someone. It changes them. By lifting someone in need up you automatically lift yourself up. In that instant, you make the world a better place.
Give without hesitating. You don’t have to be seen by others.You are being observed by the whole universe. Isn’t that enough?
You have free will. It is you who makes the final decision.
Nothing ever goes away until it has taught you what you must know.Your bad karma is a Blessing in Disguise
Guilt is a form of punishment. Painful results in your life come from actions you took that clashed with the goals of the universe. The pain drives home the lesson. What are the goals of the universe? Everlasting love.
Karma treats everyone equally. You won’t get special treatment. Learn from your past. Learn from the lessons of your life.
Can I change my karma?
Can you change your karma? Yes. You cannot stop karma but you can change it. Anything you did in your past can be “undone” by doing good now. You have reaped what you sowed. You created your own destiny, now you can recreate it. How? You have free will. You can learn from the past.
A clear conscience cannot be bought from a moment of regret or shame. If you want forgiveness for your actions you must first take responsibility for them.
Regret is the starting point. Feeling bad about what you did sends a signal to the universe. You must really mean what you say. It’s about learning through compassion. That comes from very carefully imagining how others feel. You are saying that you understand your past actions were wrong. You have awareness. This is the beginning. You have started to undo what you did.
Sometimes, you have to experience what you have done to others. No matter how bad you have been, you can always begin again. You can only erase bad karma with regret, then practicing kindness and love. There is no other way.
If you ever harmed anyone, ask them for forgiveness. Their forgiveness will dissolve any bad karma and turn it into good karma. Your guilt will disappear. You will feel wonderful.
Love your enemies. Don’t seek revenge.
Only when everyone is your friend and you have no enemies do you become powerful. When you have to fight you are no longer powerful. Enemies bring worries. Friends bring happiness.
Revenge usually inflicts self-damage. When you hate or dislike someone it creates negativity. Wishing someone well who hurt you allows you to let go of bad energy. You just have to wish them well in your mind and mean it.
Anyone who has hurt you will receive their karma. You don’t have to do anything other than forgive them. It’s a difficult thing to do but will give you an amazing feeling of relief. You will be released to carry on with the good things in your life.
Do not seek revenge. You will only hurt yourself and others around you. Allow the universe to use its infinite powers to help you. No one can harm you when your intentions are pure.
Destroy your enemies. Make them your friends!
Be kind to those who are unkind and angry. They need it the most.
Our thoughts and actions are the forces we send out of ourselves. All life is expression. Your soul is trying to see itself in everything. The universe wants harmony. It seeks balance.
Jealousy and Karma
A little jealousy is natural, a sign of love. But too much is not good. Feel for those who are jealous of you. Have respect for their jealousy as they think so highly of you. They are counting your blessings instead of their own. They are not jealous of you but what you represent, what they always wanted to be.
Negativity is a sign of jealously. Forgiving jealousy is good karma. They are hurting themselves, not you. If you are popular or great in some way, sympathize with those who are not. Jealousy can also be a test. How will you react to those who are jealous of you?
Does Karma have an immediate effect?
To fully understand why what you did was good or bad can take time. Many lessons are instant but some things can only be learned over time. So karma plants a seed. Over time it will grow. At just the right moment, the exact moment, you will receive your karma.
Remember the purpose of karma is not revenge. The universe is not vengeful. The purpose of karma is to help you become a better person.
The effects of karma are sometimes immediate and in other cases there is a delay. There will always be an effect, no matter how long the delay. The consequences of your actions good or bad may even follow you into the next life.
What you do is your choice and you have freewill. What happens to you as a result of your choices is no longer in your hands. Karma will decide.
It is impossible to escape your karma.
How to Get Good Karma
When you experience good karma always remember to be grateful. Gratitude means you understand that your actions were good. Most people only notice their bad karma. Notice your good karma and say, “thank you”.
The more spiritual you are the faster your karma will be returned. The more you know, the more responsible you are. A person who understands spiritual laws and does not practice them suffers greatly.
The opposite is also true. When you are kind and loving your karma is returned in the most beautiful way. You have a magic blanket of protection around you. The most powerful forces are with you.
Do to others what you would like to be done to you, because it is being done to you!
That is the Law of Karma and now you understand it completely.
