Karma: Many believe Karma is – you do bad, bad things happen to you – You do good, good things happen to you during this life and in those things that you do, and that are done to you.
According to Buddhism and Hinduism – Karma is the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences, or in Christianity it is the sum of a person’s actions in this life viewed as deciding their fate upon facing the lord.
So – Your Karma – is your OVER ALL life actions, deeds, spiritual intent been good or bad? Have you believed enough, have you followed and practiced your faith – not only in word but actions? Been kind to those who needed it? Not turned your head and ignored them? Have you done your best not to judge?
As I live and pray this prayer that I was taught once –
Oh, Great Spirit
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me, I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have
made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand the things
you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have
hidden in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy – myself.
Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my Spirit may come to you without shame.
So – what does your Karma look like today, this week, this year? Do not only have faith but believe it, practice it and give thanks for it!
