What is Karma
Thoughts, words, actions, inaction’s and intentions, that you perform in the present or in the past, consciously or unconsciously, is called Karma.
Feelings, seeing, listening and taste are also Karma.
Karma is an energy of cause and effect, that you emit from everything that you did in the past, and that you are doing in the present.
Newton’s Third Law of Motion
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
There’s a natural law of karma that vindictive people, who go out of their way to hurt others, will end up broke and alone.
How people treat you is their karma, how you react is yours. Be careful how you treat people. What you do to others has a funny way of coming back on you.
Every man’s sin falls on his own head.
Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall they also reap.
Never try to ruin someone, that’s Bad Karma. Let them ruin themselves the victory is that much sweeter. You reap what you sow!
One who previously made bad karma, but who reforms and creates good karma, brightens the world like the moon appearing from behind a cloud.
Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.
