I’ve often heard the word karma used in reference to someone getting their share of the worlds retaliation. You reap what you sow. But I never really heard it used in a positive aspect, not until now. Continuing with our series from Deepak Chopra’s book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, this week’s law focuses on the Law of Karma or cause and effect.
Chopra’s clearly explains that our actions have consequences. Therefore, the consequences of our actions should be reflected on our desire to choose happiness and success for others.
Every moment we are faced with decisions. It’s the results of those decisions that place us in a state of joy or regret. That’s the karmic experience. In order to control this experience so that we can continually live a life that is full of joy and contentment, we must be aware of the results of our actions. The best way to do this is to make all decisions consciously. Take a moment to tap into our intuition and allow our heart and our spirit to guide us through the decision making process.
If we can actually consider the end result of our actions and experience comfort, then we should continue that thought and put those actions in place. However, if we experience any level of discomfort when considering our actions, then we should not follow through. The intuition that we receive when seeking guidance will determine our assertion of a positive or negative human experience.
Chopra also shares 3 powerful steps that we can take to help us in our transition in living an enlighten karma experience. Watch this video on the law of karma and learn more.
