Understanding the Law of Karma

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” – Abraham Lincoln

We all have come across a stage where we notice the fight of good vs. evil within us. William Golding, in his novel “Lord of the Flies” said that, “Humans are barbaric and animalistic in nature. Give them a chance and they’ll reveal their monsters.” law of karma

When we talk about monstrous and outrageous behaviour, we think of murders and instigation of communal riots/differences on the basis of race, status etceteras. Everything that surrounds us began from a thought, and this applies even to an act of committing a murder, betraying someone or even fallacious behaviour.

These are the conscious negative choices we make for ourselves that ends up harming us the most, once we land into the court room of the universe. Because the universe stays in motion and everyone has to deal with their Karma. Whatever you do, will come back to you. Good or Bad. Even when you’re unaware, you’re in conversation with the universe. You are communicating with your actions and thoughts.

Contrary to this Law of Karma theory, we have capitalism (industrialisation/commercialisation) reaching to a level of destruction from where we can’t find a way back. I see the world around and it fills me with remorse for having to believe in the uprising culture of materialism and greed. As Lincoln says that, “Give anyone a power to reach to the conclusion about one’s character.”

We do know that people involved in capitalism are building up a bad karma. And they do have to compensate for it. I have had few friends asking me about the credibility of the Law of Karma, “Hey, that person is a wrong-doer, yet he is so happy. How?”

We all go through a phase where we query all that can be put into realm of questioning because we have been wronged or can see wrong.

Karma is a slow process. One needs to have endurance and perseverance to witness its functioning. Never despair and keep that hope in the hood. Also, after some serious pondering over the question, I realised, it all comes down to the parameters we set in our head that becomes the prominent cause of agitation.

Happiness, however, is eternal. It shines through your eyes and emits a vibe full of positivity. It fills your surrounding with joy and lightens up your face. It connects you to the higher spiritual self. It becomes a state of mind.

As humans, we tend to compare, even though we should master the art of not indulging in one as comparisons give a limit to your imagination when one is infinite and limitless. In other words, it’s judging oneself harmfully.

Haruki Murakami, the Japanese author says that, “Whatever you’re seeking won’t come in the form you are expecting.” Wrongdoers always know that they are doing wrong and to avoid facing the guilt they keep on indulging themselves in the same process. But, no one is spared. Their peace of mind is disturbed in ways we can’t envision. Capitalism is indeed at its peak but after greater chaos comes greater order.

So, never for once let your faith get fragile in the goodness of the soul and mind. It is the only thing that can connect you to yourself. And allow the universe to give you immense happiness. Rest everything is similar to puddle jumping. Believe in the vastness of the universe. Faith indeed can move mountains.

Love this, Thank you

and one more thing – your conclusion that Lord of the flies that people are “evil” I’m paraphrasing – I disagree there too. that is a untrue statement. I would recommend you watch the movie again

I think you meant communism. After all if you don’t have capitalism humans will delve into communism and we see the horror and misery and suffering and all out human extermination that results in. 135 million exterminations and counting. Other than that nice article.

What if karma is an illusion just like our reality, when in fact our physical body subconscious is driving your every move from what you believe is right and won’t, deserve and not deserve. Not to mention the reactions people have to your decisions as well.

I believe I have created negative karma for myself and I didn’t start to become fully aware of what I was doing until the situation had already been ongoing for some time. I am wondering if there is a way to be “forgiven”, to neutralize karmic effects and learn the necessary lessons without necessarioy incurring an “equal and opposite reaction” in the world.
