Basics of Karma

By: Missy Marston

What is Karma?

“If you step on people in this life, you’re going to come back as a cockroach.” ~Willie Davis

The idea of karma is that for every action there is a reaction.

In Sanskrit, karma means ‘action’ or ‘deed’ – it is the spiritual culpability of our actions. Karma can be mental or physical, so even your thoughts affect your karma, especially the intent behind an action. Karma follows you through your past lives and continues through your current life. The idea of karma is that your thoughts, your actions, and the results of your actions are all the same thing and have the same karmic value. Any selfless thought or action rewards you with good karma. Any good intention is rewarded with ‘good karma’ and any bad intention is rewarded with ‘bad karma’.

Karma does not determine your actions or the repercussions you face, and therefore karma does not determine your fate – having good karma does not mean you will be lucky and fortunate, just as having bad karma does not mean bad luck or misfortune. However, whatever happens to you is deserved, whether it is good or bad.

The idea is that, throughout our lives, we must pay off our karma debts in order to stop the cycle of reincarnation and to bring our souls closer to the divine.

“Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.” ~Tryon Edwards

Good deeds are necessary to release yourself from the spiritual confines of karma.

If you have done a lot of bad things in your life, don’t despair! You can always change your karmic value by doing good deeds, thinking good thoughts, and always having good intentions. The universe simply wants you to understand how and why others suffer – this life, like all our other lives, is meant to be a teaching experience, and we are meant to learn.

Love and light to you all!

I have two dogs, two cats, and too many fish – I adore animals. I love reading, especially Kurt Vonnegut, and have a steady interest in philosophers. On October 10th, I lost my best friend and little sister, Christina. Out of that tragic experience came a reminder of my deep-rooted love for all things metaphysical and a sign for my future path. Within weeks, I began channeling Christina! I want everyone to know the enlightening truth that there is much more out there than we realize. There is so much more waiting inside of ourselves than we give credit for, and all of it is easily accessible.
