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.
