Karma (The Law of Cause and Effect)
Sanskrit; Pāli: kamma. kárma, kárman = act, action, performance.
In short u can say, that Karma is the law of course and effect.
What ever you send out into the universe, will come back again.
It’s not some kind of strange belief but logic at it’s best.
Eg. if you act bad and angry toward other people, what do you think will return to you? People acting bad and angry towards you of course.
Everyone have heard the expression, “What you sow is what you reap.” Whether you like it or not, everything that is happening at this moment, is a result of the choices you’ve made in the past. Unfortunately, many of the choices we have taken through life are made unconsciously, and therefore we don’t think they are choices.
Karma is the effects of a person’s actions that determine his destiny in this or the next incarnation. It is the law of course and effect, which means, that what ever you send out, will return.
The present life is one of many in the chain of lives. In both Hinduism and Buddhism, every action we do in these lives has consequences. If we do harm, it will come back to us later. If we do goodness, it will come back to us as well. And what we do, comes back mostly in this life, but sometimes also in the next.
The karma is our driving force, that keeps us going, until we know who and what we are. When the work of the karma is done, you are complete and will experience your great moment of enlightenment.
A small but very interesting quote on this subject: (Said to be a quote from God, what ever that is.)
“I will not let you go until I bless you!”
A bit scary but kind of cool.
Here to learn, whether we like it or not.
But but but…
In my believe, we do not only go through trying times, as a result of harmful actions in this or a past life.
Trying times also comes as this is where we learn. You could actually say, that the bigger the crises, the bigger the insight.
So be careful with pointing fingers at a person in crises. It just might be a gift they are receiving, as they are ready for the next insight on their path.
