"Everything happens for a reason it's just a matter
of moving your point of view around until you see it"
You can see the beginning workings of this canvas
in my previous post.
Today I'm thinking about "Karma" a Sanskrit word
which means "action."
Karma is neither judge nor jury it is simply the
universal law of cause and effect that says every
thought, word and act carries energy into the world
and affects our present reality.
Karma can also refer to the "work" we have ahead of us,
which includes lessons from both our past and present
lives. Part of our life's work is to understand our
individual relationship to our universe, our
connectivity to each other.
Based on the principle that individual behavior
mirrors universal patterns, the tiniest act -- a thought,
for example -- can have enormous impact.
The energy our thoughts and actions produce can cover
the entire planet, or even beyond, in the blink of an eye.
Buddha has said: "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."
Similarly he said: "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."
Karma does not decay like external things, or ever
It cannot be destroyed "by time, fire, or water."
Its power will never disappear, until it is ripened.
--Sogyal Rinpoche, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
Today, be mindful of your karma. Remember... "what goes
around, comes around."
I am grateful for your visit and kind words.
