Karma

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”
— Dr. Wayne Dyer

Karma is a Hindu or Buddhist concept. It’s also very Christian, “what you sow so shall you reap.”

It’s thousands of years old principle in human life. And simply put, it’s what you do and put out into the world that comes back to you. Everything you do comes back to you - whether it’s good or bad. 

Karma has tremendous application in therapy and life for the “healing of the mind.” It’s simply the cause and effect that drives the cycle of change. 

One’s present predicaments or persisting problems are often closely linked to the experience of private karma. 

And ... its undetected effects on one’s well being and relationships over a significant course of time.


Notice your feelings about karma in all your moments of life. These feelings are the ones that drive the way you think, feel, and behave.

Take for instance, Bobby, 35. His karma is finally catching up on him, reaching a threshold.

His years of drug addiction have now caused unnecessary deep pain and sufferings - linked to both his worsening medical condition and broken family situation.

His doctors diagnosed him with a certain type of cancer related to his drug use. 

And his wife and children have abandoned him for physically, emotionally, and financially abusing them.

Every action you take is meaningful. Every choice you make has a consequence. You can’t escape the consequences of your choices and actions.

The thoughts and feelings that produce those choices and actions create an interconnected web that inevitably shapes your life. 

Life is a boomerang. What you give, you get. So says one inspirational poster.

So the earlier you realize how karma plays out inescapable consequences in you, the better you’d be in making every choice or action to build your life and relationships on.
