Karma is the actions we engage in, or deeds that we do, that initiate the cycle of cause and effect in our lives. It’s the ancient wisdom, found in Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity and other major spiritual traditions, that reminds us we reap what we sow.
Most of our suffering is a result of our past actions. An unhealthy diet or lifestyle inevitably leads to physical and emotional ailments. To turn this around we need to change our ways, to create a positive karma, a beneficial cycle of cause and effect in our lives.
All too often, we want new results, a healing of our physical and emotional circumstances, without having to change our behaviors. The law of karma prevents this. Old behaviors equal the same old results… every time. New results come with new behaviors, sustained over time with a sense of dedication and discipline.
What would you like to change in your life? What new behaviors might take you there? How might you access the law of karma for healing and personal growth?
