Thoughtful Karma

14 May

Karma is the concept of “action” or “deed” indefinitely understood as cause and effect.

The philosophical explanation of karma can differ slightly between traditions, but the general concept is basically the same.



For some reason, lately I have been thinking alot about the cause and effect of karma… how it happens, when it comes back and how effectively the measure is taken into our own lives.

All living creatures are responsible for their karma — their actions and the effects of their actions — and for their release.



Actions do not create karma (good or bad), but intentions do, many people believe that everything in the Universe is in a state of creation, maintenance, or destruction.


Similarly, the mind creates a thought, maintains or follows it for some time, and the thought ultimately dissolves, and it is replaced by other thoughts.

Karma is a response to created events in our own opinions and of the intentions that we have, above all.

So everything we do, believe in and breathe life into, withholds its own sense of karmatic nature. I am starting to think, while good karma is slowly creeping into my life – I still am trying to cope through a little bad karma (as we all humanly do).

…Something I’m working on, as I’m sure the ‘greater good’ is seen above all. But I often wonder if the good karma is built upon the bridge of bad karma? I find it all a lesson that has been worth building upon, each new step forward with good karma is much stronger than the last.


Through the law of karma, the effects of all deeds actively create past, present, and future experiences, it is about really making yourself responsible for your own life, and the pain and joy it brings to ourselves and to others.


Ultimately a life-balancing act we cannot escape.
