If you don’t like your Karma
In our western society we often refer to karma as good or bad. But that predisposes judgment. Good and bad signify punishment or reward based upon our actions.
Karma however is pure action without any moral attachment. Karma yoga simply means cause and effect. So if you wish to change your karma you have to consciously work to change your actions. If you want to be healthy you need to consciously do things that support your health. If you are ill it is not because you are bad. For example: if you have arthritis, weak bones or high blood pressure it is most likely because of an underlying conditions that get exaggerated due to over use, diet and stress. We may not be able to change the situation, but we can change how we approach it. Approach life by knowing, that with the power of your thoughts, you can change the nature of your life.
Arthritis or any other health condition may be permanent and painful, but approaching it with an attitude of health by eating a healthy diet, exercising and getting plenty of rest is taking the action that will get you the results of a healthier and happier self. Because life becomes what life does.
If you don’t like your karma do something positive to change it. It is not about being good or bad. It is about accepting what comes our way and then the choices we make that turn bad karma into good karma. Make conscious healthy choices - Because life becomes what life does.
