"Whatever a man sows, that he shall reap"
This statement is as old as time itself, it's hard to pinpoint where it originated from.
Karma (/ˈkɑːrmə/; Sanskrit: कर्म, IPA: [ˈkɐɽmɐ] (listen); Pali: kamma) means action, work, or deed. The term also refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect, often descriptively called the principle of karma, wherein intent and actions of an individual (cause) influence the future of that individual (effect): good intent and good deeds contribute to good karma and happier rebirths, while bad intent and bad deeds contribute to bad karma and bad rebirths.
Karma is simply the law of sowing and reaping. Karma defines balance in every sense.
The definition of Karma runs deep as the creation story itself. It is one of the most important laws of creation.
Karma is justice.
If a man goes to the farm today to plant cocoyam, will he expect to reap potatoes?
If a farmer sows seeds of corn, will he expect to harvest beans?
The laws are as simple as that.
When a man sows a seed, it will mature and then multiply, the seed will bring forth fruits in more quantities.
The same principle applies to when you sow a good or bad seed
Your words, your thoughts, and your deeds are the three ways through which you sow seeds.
Have you ever heard of the power of the tongue?
Have you ever said something out loud and it happened?
There is power in words, when you say something or wish for something, you are actually sowing a seed - Good or bad.
Be mindful of what you say at all times, speak positively all the time even when things get hard and you will see the magic in the power of words.
Aside from just words, we can also sow seeds with our thoughts.
The mind is a powerful place, that is why you need to keep the heart of your thoughts pure at all times.
Feed your thoughts with positive flow, by doing this you sow good seeds.
This simply refers to your actions. This is the physical manifestations of your words and thoughts.
Your words, thoughts, and actions are the tools through which a man sows seeds.
If you have ever thought about hurting someone and the person eventually gets hurt, you have played a part in that activity hence you have sown a seed.
The balance of the world must be restored, nature has a way of doing this. The only advantage we have as humans is that we have free will.
We have the power to sow good seeds or bad seeds.
There is a bit of conflict between Karma and Forgiveness
If Karma is real then forgiveness does not really exist - at least this was what I thought.
You see, this law is so powerful that it can be applied to a lot of concepts today.
When a man sows bad seed, this seed multiplies and bring forth more fruit, but if this person decides to change his ways at any point by sowing good seeds, the negative reaction from the bad seeds will be neutralized
A big accident that could have taken his life could come down to just his leg hitting a stone...Forgiveness
There are a lot of religious believes out there today, everyone is entitled to theirs.
The concept of karma itself can be seen in our daily activities, you just have to open your eyes to see.
Karma is neither good nor evil, our actions, words, and thoughts decide what is good and evil.
I strongly believe in the pursuit of the truth, you need to be open-minded.
I do not know much at this point but this much I do, the truth can take various forms and can be found in different places but it remains the same. The truth is universal.
