Almost everyone I have talked to believes there is some form of cosmic justice that everything you do comes back to you in some way shape or form. Life is all about Balance, from balancing work, to friends, to relationships to family.

Karma is the accumulated debt that you owe to creation. This debt comes through your agreement that you are responsible for the choices and messes you make. Karma can come in the form of credit as well. If you put out good vibes it will come back to you in full.

What kind of person you become will determine your karma balance.

Karma Definition – (in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.

Many believe that your karma is also a sum of the actions of your current life and previous lives. If you have negative karma credits you must make up for those before you can receive the good credits.

The key to karma is if you are an incredibly good person you will receive rewards unimaginable.

Karma has many origins in ancient India, it is a key concept in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, and Taoism.

In Taoism from Wiki it states, Every deed is tracked by deities and spirits. Appropriate rewards or retribution follow karma, just like a shadow follows a person.

Taoism also believes you can change your Karma by rituals, offerings and repentance at temples.

 

A basic principle of Karma is that it stays with you beyond your current life. The key would seem to live your life to the best of your ability and help all those you can. Whether it is real or not it seems it would be in all of our best interests to RESPECT the idea of Karma. Don’t harm others and don’t have ill intent. With that you will be covered and it also serves your purpose to live a good life!
