Have you ever heard the expressions – “What goes around, comes around” and “You reap what you sow”? This is karma in its simplest terms. More definitively, karma is rooted in Hinduism and Buddhism and is a cosmic principle which brings upon oneself inevitable results based on a good or bad action. In essence, a person is rewarded or punished in this incarnation according to that person’s deeds in a previous incarnation. Good and bad karma can also be created and cleansed in the same lifetime.
You may have even said or heard someone express “Karma is a bitch” when either hearing of or observing a person’s wicked action, or in being the recipient of such action. Yeah…we are either rewarded generously or we pay deeply for our actions and deeds. The universe has a way of keeping us honest in our treatment of others. So, the other saying “Do unto others as you would wish they do unto you” might have deeper meaning to you now that you know how karma is created and stays with you until it is repaid or cleansed.
Can we ever repay karmic debt and cleanse it if we were not honorable in our actions? Yes, there are steps to take to do this. There are many spiritual ways of doing this and there are experts to guide you in this who are way more qualified. Unfortunately, we all are carrying karmic debt, so I did my own research and have my own practices for repaying or cleansing that debt. I encourage you to do your own research as well. I personally strive to be the creator of good karma. No one’s perfect though and when I slip up, I own up to it and try to make it right as I don’t want to carry the burden of bad karma. I need to flip it to the right side – right quick!
The biggest awakening moment is knowing that karma is very, very real. It’s not some WOO thing and it’s a critical component to knowing why certain things or patterns or people dominate our lives. So now that we know those sayings above have real meaning, it’s time to step it up and get straight with our own karma.
