Karma is the idea that what is done unto others, good action or bad action, is returned to the original source to balance out the whole.
Whilst wishes and beliefs most certainly belong to their master, the idea of karma really is a simple mind state created to make it easier to cope with the “unfair” nature of something perceived in our immature thinking.
Karma also acts as a sort of restraining order for those who may wish to take part in behaviours that are unjust, or simply put out as unjust (when they are not) in some cases.
For those who have not yet been taught, perceiving the other who has something and the other does not, means that they must be the same... it is demanded, “I must have the same, they have it so why can’t I? Life is not fair.”
It is the same for natural life challenges that are dealt, “I have suffered so the causers of my condition must suffer too, in this life time or in many ahead where the return will be at its most damaging”
Life isn’t fair, says the child, who feels much recourse when having the belief that unjust behaviour will slap the unjust back in the face tenfold.
Though they are diverse, challenges happen in anyone’s lives as the result of life’s naturally occurring ups and downs, and within context. Life’s ups and downs are nothing to do with any man made idea of karma.
Consider how the idea of karma can come from a naturally arising place of revenge within those who have been through or are faced with life’s challenges.
Consider how the idea of karma can also come from a place of spite against others, because someone is perceived as wrong doing and maybe it is not connected to us directly, but we declare that karma will get them for their choices.
If someone is having a bad time, has experienced a poor childhood, born with physical or mental disability, karma is not the dealer of such situations, although cruelty of someone who wants to make another “bad” may say so.
Nature has no idea what karma is amongst people in their behavioural conduct or physical presence, karma is the man made coping mechanism, the inner system of law and order in a world of chaos and chance which many choose not to accept as it is.
It boils down to a sense of control.
Letting the idea of karma go is freeing not only for ones self, but also for others who will no longer remain in a state of non acceptance.
The natural consequences for involving oneself can remain for those who engage in just behaviour, whilst the elements of the idea that keeps one locked into lack of growth or manipulation can gently fall away, and for generations to come.
