When we face difficulties and experience hurt we tend to place the blame on someone or something outside ourselves. Karma means that whatever comes to us, be it good or bad, is a reaction to the good and bad we have done in the past. It is a philosophy of total responsibility.
We see this playing out daily in our dealings with others. If we are kind to others, they tend to be kind towards us. If we eat properly and exercise regularly, we tend to stay healthy. If we apply ourselves, we tend to get ahead. Yet it is more difficult to acknowledge this reality when something bad happens to us that seemingly had little or no connection to our past activities. Yet it’s interesting to note that when something good happens, we often intuitively feel that we must have done something, somewhere to deserve it, or that someone up there is favoring us for some reason.

Understanding the principle of karma, that every result that comes to you has an earlier cause, even if the result is undesirable, and that everything that happens is moving you closer to your divine purpose, look back to a time when something bad happened to you that you had difficulty accepting (or that caused you to blame someone else) and ask yourself, how would I have reacted differently if I understood the principle of karma at that time?
This response will be awarded full points automatically, but it will be reviewed and possibly adjusted after submission.
