Good Karma

Have you heard of the popular saying “What goes around comes around”? Karma, the fundamental concept in religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism, is a universal belief that the energy we release will eventually attract a suitable response.

The word “karma” originates from Sanskrit and means “deed” or “action.”  Roughly translated, it suggests that all good deeds are rewarded, and all evil ones will be punished.

The energy you give out eventually comes back full circle, and every action has its consequences. Much of what we experience today is a result of our past thoughts and actions.

Therefore, in case we send off negative energy, we will experience nothing but negativity. On the other hand, to counter it, we need to create better karma, and thus raise our vibrational energy.

Creating good karma is not much different from working hard to become a better person, and here are 5 tips to help us:

  • Meditation-- It clears the mind and helps us become calm, patient, empathic, and accepting
  • Honesty-- Being honest and focused on the truth is the best attitude one can adopt in life. In this way, you won’t attract lies and fake people. Honesty is the best policy.
  • Mindfulness-- We need to learn to be sympathetic and kind towards others. Spread kindness and compassion.
  • Help-- We should use every opportunity to help others, and this will attract good karma in return
  • Purpose-- Seek a higher purpose in your life. Find a way to become useful in the community, help those in need, and positively contribute to society

You should not be afraid of the effects of your past actions, but you should work hard to improve and thus navigate your circumstances with truth, integrity, and grace.

You are creating karma with every word you say, every thought you have, and every action you do. When you understand this, you will live a purpose-based and fully aware life.

As Deepak Chopra explains it:

“Each action generates a force that comes back to us as it has been implemented. We will reap what we have sown.

 When we choose to act to bring happiness and success to others, then the fruits of karma are happiness and success.”
