What Is Karma?
What Is Karma? Psychic Sylvia Browne, World-renowned Psychic Sylvia Browne pictures "Itís karma baby!" How often have you heard that term? Most people think of it as being a bit of a fun term, as in "your karma ran over my dogma."  However, it is actually a very difficult word to translate from the original Sanskrit. It actually means a lot of different things. Mostly, the word means "action." Some people see karma as being those events in our life over which we have no control.

Still, it would be a mistake to think that karma is a matter that should be treated irreverently. That and the phrase "call it karma" are often used to describe what happens when you reap what you should sow. 

In fact, to define karma is to think of it as being what you send out coming back to you. One of the most famous of karma quotes is actually, "Whatever you send out, comes back to three times three times three." This is a saying that is recognized in many different religions, including those that do not have real karma symbols like Wicca. 

The three times three rule is the justification also for doing onto your neighbor as you would have them do onto you. It is the law of karma in action. People do not often think of karma as being Biblical, but that is a good example of how it is.

For the early Buddhists, karma was a non-linear matter. Other Indian schools believed that karma operated in a simple straight line, with actions from the past influencing the present, and present actions influencing the future. Later on, it was seen as more complex. Often, Karma acts in multiple feedback loops, with the present moment being shaped both by past and by present actions. The idea is that present actions shape not only the future, but also the present. Furthermore, present actions need not be determined by past actions, which mean that paying attention to your karma can alter future events. In fact, this is how Buddhist witches attempt to alter the future.

The problem with karma is that once it starts, it is hard to stop. When you are unable to break free of certain very bad patterns that you repeat again and again, it is called a karma loop.

A popular karma symbol is the Ying Yang medallion, which looks like two embracing teardrops. They symbolize the union of both the male and female principles in life Ė the union of opposites.

Remember the John Lennon song : Instant Karma's Going To Get You ? He sang that,and then he was murdered...Do you have an explaination for this? Or,was it just a song...

Thanks for the info, Sandy! I'm going to have to get that book, for sure! It is most likely true that most people that are operating strictly from their ego-self and not their higher self would not be able to grasp or accept the concept of karma, because the ego-self is the not-self. I've never heard it expressed in terms of a specific frequency in physics, though! In spiritual & metaphysical stuff, they always refer to raising your vibrational frequency. I've also never heard any statistics on what percentage of the population is vibrating in a more god-consciouness frequency. That's really interesting stuff!

Sherry & Denise, The best way to create good karma is to selflessly & unselfishly do for & give to others in any way you can-big or small. Volunteer, donate, just do good deeds. Treat others as you'd like to be treated. You may not see results until a future incarnation, but you'll be SOOO glad you did! It's also very important not to create any more bad karma with anyone-do not mistreat anyone-no matter what they do to you, (I know from experience this is VERY difficult), but if you retalliate in any any way-no matter how just it may seem-then you remain on the karmic wheel with that person for another go around in a future lifetime. It's also very important to forgive everyone who's ever wronged you-this is my biggest challenge and is what I'm working on now. It's not easy for me at all, but I've learned that somehow, I HAVE to do it. It will be my biggest challenge of all. Wish me luck! I hope I've helped.

I see it a bit more complex.if you read Dr.David Hawkins, phd. his book, truth vs falsehood, it would be most impossible for anyone calibrating at below the level of 200, which is truth to even register that they are creating/living out karma. it takes spiritual evolution to recognize love, peace, and oneness.dr. hawkins states at this time. 78% of the world's population, operates below 200.try telling them that they are creating their own karmic space and another war breaks out. until the conciousness of man is raised considerably, and the ego bites the dust we will exist with karmic consequences, until we can't any longer.when we get to the position of recognizing our spiritual being vs our small i for the self only, we won't engage in karma. strengthening one's connection with Creator sends a wave of grace in every direction and raises the concious level of thousands.

Suzie & Erin, I used to feel exactly as you both do. I'm the nicest person in the world & my life has been a living hell of misfortune, mistreatment, & tragedy. I felt I didn' deserve it. As I learned more about karma, though, I realized I DID deserve it-from past lives. This was a very bitter pill for me to swallow. It took a little while to really absorb it & accept it. Everything in your life is from a cause that you set into place at one time or another-it could have been 10,000 years ago or 5 minutes ago. Sometimes people don't have to pay their karma for a long time-then it hits them all at once, (other times it's instant-remember the John Lennon song?) You could be paying for karma from many lifetimes in this one. One way or another, all karma MUST be balanced in the end. NO ONE escapes their karma. There is no injustice in the universe. Hope this helps!

I DO believe in Karma! A former landlady tried to warn my ex-husband when he was bragging about how he cheated his employers, "There is a law of cause and effect; what you sow will come back to you - either in this life or the next!" Not too surprisingly, he ignored her and continued his careless ways. Somehow or other, even if his employers did not "catch" him in the act, he was never able to keep his jobs very long even in the best of economic times. After I left him, a mutual acquaintance, no doubt trying to garner pity for him, informed me that he had lost his thumb in an accident at work. (Knowing him, it was probably related to a babyish fit of anger!) A true friend pointed out, "Isn't that karmic retribution for him? Where had he always tried to keep you? UNDER HIS THUMB!"

I don't believe too much in Karma, due to my own experiences. I have always been a very good person - not easy to anger, never done drugs/alcohol, rarely argues, and have never done anything purposely bad. However, my life is basically a chain of bad luck and misfortune. My bad luck outweighs my good luck severely, and causes me and those around me to suffer. It's really unfortunate, I'd say.
By Suzie, Friday, June 26, 2009 12:38:15 PM
I truly believe in Karma. I get confused when people treat me like crap and I feel like I'm a nice person, I'm friendly, kind, giving, caring, fun, probably over generous. So is it Karma from my previous life? Or will these (adult children) have bad Karma one day? Hope I explained myself...I believe I put out good energy...
By Charlene, Friday, June 26, 2009 08:44:23 AM
Treat others as you would want to be treated. Even when you think they do not deserve it nor earn it from you. You do not know their story. You may see it, you may not see it, but Karma is what you put out to the universe and receive three fold.

I was recently told that I was my mother's abuser in a past life. That explains a lot! In this lifetime I was sexually assaulted at an early age, and she did nothing to defend me. She wants to get close, but then betrays my trust, or uses my trust against me by sharing my life with others. We are to the point communication is minimal, and if it wasn't for my children it would be nothing at all. I am seeking to fulfill my greatest potential in this lifetime and how do I release this burden so I can move forward?
