Karma – life becomes what life does
What is karma? Sometimes it is best to define something by what it is not. Karma is not about good or bad. That would means judgement. We are not here on earth to judge. We are here to observe. Karma is about cause and effect. Every action creates a reaction so it behooves us to pay careful attention to everything we think, say and do. Karma means work. When we think of work we think of our professions, but that is not the nature of karma. Karma is about working to develop virtues and removes vices and this can only be done when you take on an earthly life.
You are here to work on purifying your being and to do this you must take on and live out all aspects of your life; pleasure and pain. What you do for a living gives you an opportunity to work on your karma, but karmic work is of a soulful nature and not for mental satisfaction and physical comfort.
Part of working on your karma is to work on establishing balance, being flexible and finding your strength. Let’s get stated.
Just remember that life becomes what life does. Every thought, word and action creates a reaction so pay careful attention to what you think, say and do. Karma means work. You are here on earth to do your karmic work. Do it with conscious thought and you will reap the rewards.
