Do you believe in Karma? A lot of people do. What comes around goes around is one way to define Karma. I was talking to a friend the other day and she put it very eloquently. The word “Karma”, is a very small word to describe a very big thing.
I don’t necessarily believe in Karma in the sense that most people use the word. Most people use the word incorrectly. Someone once said to me that their example of Karma was: “If someone steals a piece of pie, they will choke on it while eating it”. While this is a very simple version and might be a good way to define Karma to a child, it is not necessarily correct.
I don’t believe in Karma in that sense. I do however know that everything is energy. The energy you put out is the energy you will get back. Just because someone steals something doesn’t necessarily mean that they will have “bad karma”. What if they do not think there is anything wrong with stealing? It is the energy behind things that creates our reality. If they don’t think there is anything wrong with it, they will not create a negative energy about it.
You can think whatever you want with the logical part of your brain, but really it is the feelings behind what you think that will create your life.
You could do something that you think is a good thing, yet feel it is a bad thing and that may create negative Karma for you.
Take what I do for example. I do what I do with the intention of helping people on their path. Throughout my life I have felt that this was what I was here to do. I was also exposed to a religion as a child that bombarded me with images that what I did was not a positive thing.
If I listen to my heart, feelings and inner guidance system, it tells me that what I am doing is a “good” thing. If I were to get “stuck” on what some scriptures say, then I would be constantly doubting that what I am doing is a good thing. I might even create some Karma for myself if I had the belief that what I was doing is wrong.
If you do things that create ‘negative’ energy for you, then you very well may experience what some people call Karma. Really, it is just getting back the energy that you are putting out there.
There are many people out there that help others’ and suffer themselves. This more likely comes from their belief system. They may have a belief system that says they are meant to suffer for others. It is not necessarily Karma.
There are also many people on our planet that appear greedy and selfish (think big banking, oil barons etc.), they may not suffer “bad Karma” as most people define it. The majority of them have no idea what type of energy they are putting out. All they know is what their belief systems tell them, which is often “Survival of the Fittest”. They think they are doing just fine. They won’t necessarily suffer the effects of “bad karma” in this lifetime.
This is a very short post to cover a very big subject. The way I have described it is a very basic take on the energies we are dealing with in this lifetime. Take a look at what you really believe and see what type of “Karma” you are creating for yourself.
