KARMA is not NEGATIVE!
Karma, a Sanskrit word that translates into “act” or “to do” is not positive or negative. It just is — in the same way that the sky is, and the earth, and night and day. There is no judgment regarding night or day, nor in anything else that is. So, there is no judgement in all that we do — our karma.
All karma that we undertake — whether action, speech or thought — comes back to us as an experience. We experience the results of our actions — during past lives as well as this one. This allows us to understand the impact of the situations we create, and in doing so, we learn. If the purpose of karma is to learn, how can it possibly be judged negatively?
Yet we judge and label experiences as good or bad based on our subjective perspectives. Our thinking is greatly influenced by the way we’re raised and other factors: parental programming, cultural influences, societal expectations, psychological constrictions, present and past life experiences — all of which condition our emotions and desires, and impact how, when and why we do what we do. Since our perception of experiences as pleasant or unpleasant is based on this subjective conditioning, it can’t be superimposed on the concept of karma.
Karma simply reflects our actions. This is a universal principle that just is, and therefore should not be considered good or bad — and certainly not a b!+@h!
