Alphabet soup for the soul – “K”

K is for Karma

How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”

-Wayne Dyer-

Karma is a Sanskrit word that means action, work or deed. Most people have understood this idea from a very young age. It’s as simple as cause and effect. Good karma, bad karma, whatever you put out you will come back to you in return.

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you is the golden rule and it is also how to create good karma. You reap what you sow is another story. It is a very simple method to ensure you live a peaceful, happy, joyful and meaningful existence.

If the energy you put out into the world is positive then it will return to you manifested in some positive way (that you can not predict or intend, or at least I can not).

A good example that covers all three words used to describe karma (action, work, deed ) is helping a friend move to their new house or apartment.

By helping a friend, one would be initiating a positive action by performing positive work and doing a positive deed.  With one decision this person has given and therefore is adding to a positive rating in the spiritual bank account. Karma.

In helping a friend move one would have sent good karma into the ether and therefore would receive good karma in return. 

The caveat is that it won’t happen the way you think it will. The end result is the same or greater but it is not the way you imagined it.

This does not mean that if you help move a friend that they will help you move when it’s your turn. That is too easy to predict. The only predictability about karma is what you give you will also get ( good or bad doesn’t matter).

The lighter you are, the more light will shine through you. Everyone puts out karma, even if they don’t know they’re doing it. So be intentional about what kind of karma you are putting out there for others to receive and feel.

So, is your karmic bank account on the plus side or negative side?

  1. You are responsible for the way the world is. It is your doing. There is only a karmic bank account if you are an ego, which you are not. This is the illusion.
    Play a little here—whether you believe in the creation of the many religions or the Big Bang, that singularity, the word, the primordial om, the vibration, is all you. You are the bang still happening. To be banking karmic credits would assume you are separate from the whole, which is scientifically and religiously impossible.

  2. Explained the effects of karma ina very simple manner. Hopefully whoever reads this post will understand and act accordingly. Positive action always gives positive results. But may not be immediately. Little later . But definitely for good karma people will be blessed with good results.

  3. All of us are product of our own Karma. Good one leads to addition in our Karmic credit and bad one leads to Karmic debit. One thing about Karma is that nobody, even the ONE who has created us can remain immune from the Karma. Lord Krishna and Lord Rama, the incarnations of Lord Vishnu had to bear the brunt of their Karma in two Yugas

    The best course of action is not to be reactive to anything which befalls in our lives due to others misdeeds done to us. Since it is their Karma that they had done Karma to us but we react likewise or just do not be reactive is based on our wisdom.

    Be that as it may, giving pain to others, brings back the pain to us. If we do not realize at that time it is different matter but it will surely be given back to us. What we are today is in fact due to our Karmic deeds we had done in our previous births or any time in the past. That is why it is said, in this world of ours, IT IS SUM TOTAL GAME. – THE TOTAL ALWAYS REMAINS THE SAME. If we have harmed others five times, the same total harm will be done to us. No less. Initially, we may not realise but realization will come one day.

    Your write-up is really inspirational one.

    With regards
