The thought model behind the term karma can be compared with the law of cause and effect. Every act and even every thought has consequences – also for the doer. The most important principle behind it is that of “compensatory justice”.
Good and bad karma
In the Indian religions of Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism, karma is always viewed in connection with the cycle of rebirth. So karma doesn’t end when you die. Karma can even mean that one has to go through more or less rebirths and that one is punished or rewarded in a next life. The aim of these religions is to no longer generate any karma at all and thus to escape the circle of rebirths.
Karma – the spiritual wisdom according to which every action has its consequences, in this or in the next life. So nothing goes unpunished, but good deeds are guaranteed to pay off at some point. So it is better to take precautions now, because who knows how we will fare in our next life.
Always be grateful
Apparently we always need something to complain about. If there is nothing, then we just search until we find a reason, even if it does not concern us at all and we have no idea what we are talking about.
We live in a beautiful country, have running water, access to doctors and we don’t gnaw on starvation. We just forgot to appreciate things. We whine at a high level. Think about what you should actually be grateful for, because it is not something that can be taken for granted.
We like to forget that we – even as normal employees – look pretty good in this country compared to other parts of the world population. So guess the little things in your life that you should be damn grateful for.
What are you grateful for? For example, I am happy to write my thoughts and ideas here in the category ‘Ruthless Quotes‘. Tell me what you think about gratitude.
