Step 15 – the Harvest


karma. what exactly is it?

one has heard the phrase: “as you sow, so you shall reap.” Now, I think most people can recognise a little bit of truth in that statement. Maybe not the whole truth, but capturing some of it.

what one does in life has a pretty big effect on what happens to us – “what goes around, comes around”. Sometimes the effects are delayed, or the exact connection may be lost to us, but a life spent in giving and love will be more joyful than one spent in conniving and cheating. The universe is measured in that way.

I best think of karma as the “Harvest Effect”.

all the things you do, think, and say send out shockwaves into the universe. These waves of intent will return back to us, as we collide with them in a future time. So many of the ripples we experience now are the effects of the past; lost behind the veil of conscious time.

Not everyone is brought to justice in this lifetime; not all giving is rewarded with kind smiles. But this Harvest radiates out into the forever space of eternity; all things will be returned.

respect karma!

    Really nice track man. I love listening to your new pieces each time you make one. Did you write this in sibelius?

    Really nice phrasing in this – the piano lines have enough time to breath in the right places, making for a really nice listen! I love fast upbeat baroque music like this 🙂

    There’s a destiny that makes us brothers.
    None goes his way alone.
    All that we send into the lives of others.
    Will come back into our own.

    Funny, I just read a passage on karma last night in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. I really liked this quote by the Buddha:

    “Do not overlook negative actions merely because they are small; however small a spark may be, it can burn down a haystack as big as a mountain. Do not overlook tiny good actions, thinking they are of no benefit; even tiny drops of water in the end will fill a huge vessel.”

    The power of karma is so underestimated. There are so many people, that are rude and vile for no reason and then can turn around and question why everything goes wrong in their life. One does not need to look far to find the source of one’s own troubles. Great post and beautiful music!

    Karma.. Yep.. Believe in it – try & live my life by it – “Do no harm”, etc.. But what if you are holding bad Karma from a previous lifetime? Does that mean no matter how kind, thoughful, giving love and attempting to be joyous you are in this lifetime – you are just going to attract bad things so you can clear the previous life? Hmmm…

    It’s definitely harder to pick on Dick Cheney after listening to that clip.

    Thank you. I listened to Air on the G String (Cello) just yesterday to calm me down.

    I like your interpretation of it.

    “Not everyone is brought to justice in this lifetime; not all giving is rewarded with kind smiles. ” – I think justice and kind smiles do not have to come from others who receive though… we suffer as we do the wrong and smile as we do the right within ourselves. Sometimes justice and kindness we bring upon ourselves can be greater than the ones we get externally.

    We reap what we sow.

    I really like this piece.

    “a life spent in giving and love will be more joyful than one spent in conniving and cheating”

    I continue to wonder that more people do not understand this truth and come to live it. What is the point in causing others pain? It may seem to bring oneself happiness through ill-gotten goods, but I think that is just an illusion.
