Well we all shine on
Like the moon and the stars and the sun
Well we all shine on
Every one, come on
Instant Karma's gonna get you
Gonna knock you off your feet
You better get yourself together darling
Join the human race
~ John Lennon ~ Instant Karma ~
Do you believe in Karma? You know the concept of doing good and good will happen to you. Some say that karma acts quickly and others that the karma you save up will determine who and even what you are in your next life ... that is if you believe in the next life. Some even feel that the name “karma” is hippy and new age even though almost every belief system has a version of it with a different name.
Did you know that there is even a significant part of science that supports the concept of karma ... for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction .... with every effect there is a cause. Quantum mechanics states that everything is created from something and that energy merely passes from one form to another. So, you cannot create something out of nothing ... an good and bad things don’t just happen, they have a cause and often the cause is something we have done.
Keeping this in mind, we may find ourselves asking ... do you think I asked to have these bad things happen to me? Well, that depends. Some things are a part of nature like the cycle of life and death. But maybe we should ask ourselves what are we attracting in our lives. I believe that every thought, action and emotion we have puts out an energy into the universe and acts like a magnet to whatever we are focused on. A very powerful concept.
But it is naive to think about wanting something and sitting back and waiting for it to happen. Instead, it is about your frame of mind which will determine what actions you will take to change the outcome of the situation. We all know that if you are in a defeated frame of mind you will not be in a position to take the right steps towards your ideal goal. Remember, “we may not often see them but the roots of an idea go deep and start growing before we see the leaves”.
So this all sounds great so whats the catch? Well the biggest downfall of those trying to live by karma is they expect self-gain, instantly. We give up too quickly. In the western world, we are so blessed with unbelievable riches. Most of us have a roof over our heads, plenty of food and modern technology at our fingertips. Believe that keeping focused and having patience will bring rewards. Start by being grateful for what you have ... seeds don’t sprout instantly ... and neither does karma.
The essence of karma is taking responsibility for your own actions. Everything has a consequence. And the hardest part of all of this is not letting other’s bad actions effect you. One way to combat this is to trust that karma is working for you and them in just the same way ...
how people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours ॐ wayne dyer
