“That’s just your karma…” – we may often hear this ironic phrase, but many times it’s used without proper understanding. Recently, when my dad used this saying, I assumed he had said this after talking to me but this was not the case :) In fact it’s a very common saying. We hear it on the radio, TV, read it in books and interviews with famous people. It is quite appropriate to say that something has happened due to “just karma”, but do we really know what we are talking about?
What is this KARMA? Does karma affect our life and if so, what is the cause of it? Can we blame it for the course of events, for diseases, for those terrible things that happen more and more? Although we use this phrase very loosely, we should really understand what karma is about, because it is a very important matter as it has such a great impact on our life.
Karma is not a mean person who laughs every time we do something wrong or when things don’t go the way we’d like them to go. It is us who create our karma. Every day, personally, we make up our destiny– one that is close and one which is far away – after the death of this body. So when someone is born, they come into the pre-defined conditions which they deserve.
Karma means action. Every action we perform brings a certain reaction: “as you sow, so shall you reap”. This means that if you cheat, steal, betray – sooner or later you yourself will be cheated, betrayed and robbed.
People like to blame some circumstances, other people, God… I often read the comments relating to stories about a tragic event. Many times there are comments of so called atheists who sneer, mock, or simply ask rhetorically: “Where was God, why did He let such things happen?! Where is this merciful, just, loving, over all GOD?”
Oh, it is not so simple! God exists and it is He who created this perfectly functioning law of karma, which refers to each and every one of us. He’s not responsible for our past actions, or the actions which are performed now by egoistic, self-centered people. He’s not responsible either for the regular or mundane lives of people, or for those who climb the ladder of career, fame and wealth.
The law of karma applies to every living being. It is very fair. It watches our every action, every move – ones that are good and ones that are the most abominable, so that we get back what we deserve. Nothing will be unnoticed, except…
