We’ve all heard the word “Karma” mentioned before yet it appears that there is a general misunderstanding of the concept.
What is Karma?
Deepak Chopra says this about Karma:
“Karma simply means action. Every action has consequences. Conscious choice making is the most effective way of creating future consequences of Karma. Karma creates the future, but it is also an echo from the past. Karma conditions our soul through memory, desire and imagination. Most people are prisoners of Karma, because it becomes a conditioned reflex and produces predictable outcomes in their lives.”
Basically then, it’s the belief that whatever you do comes back to you. If you do something good, something good will happen to you, and vice versa.
Recently there have been some comments on the blog and in the forum pertaining to the notion of karma. Specifically as it relates to the participants in an affair relationship – that someday, their misdeeds will catch up to them and karma will dish out some bad stuff.
These comments were noticed by one of our readers, “Maya” who sent us an email asking if we could address the subject at some point. She even gave an example of how “karma” hit her husband’s affair partner.
Here is “Maya’s” email to us:
So, what are your thoughts on this whole notion of “Karma?” Do you believe it or not?
Do you think that cheaters will someday be dealt a cruel blow by Karma?
Please share any stories where Karma has dealt out her just due – good or bad.
