The law of karma is very simple and easy to understand. Basically, it is as the old adage says: Do unto others what you want others to do to you.
This is something we have learned ever since we were little children. Beat someone up and you’re likely to get beaten up in return. But how does it really apply to our life now that we’re all grown-up? Does the law of karma still function the same way for adults?
Read on to learn more about this universal law.
You Reap What You Sow.
The law of karma can be translated into a lot of different things. It can be broken down into a lot of different meanings. One of these translations is that whatever you have contributed, you’ll gain back.
A simple example is the stock market. If you only have a 2% share in the company, then you get back what is befitting a 2% share. If you have a 50% share in the company, then you get back what is befitting your percentage. So if the company does well, then you can either win big or small depending on how much you put into it.
Like Attracts Like.
If you’re a person who is constantly thinking well of others, then you will most likely attract people who are of the same nature. Likewise, if you’re a person who has a lot of violent tendencies, then you’re also going to attract that same violent energy into your life.
Is there a way to get around this? Yes. According to the law of karma, you get what you deserve. So if you want to stop attracting violent and negative energy into your life, you need to change.
Out With the Old.
The law of karma is also interpreted in the adage, out with the old, in with the new. Basically, unless you put your past to rest, you can’t embrace the future. If you dwell on past mistakes, you won’t be able to truly move on and make a new beginning for yourself.
Of course, some people also interpret this in material items. If you have a lot of old clothes (that you never wear) still stuck in the closet, you’re limiting your chances of getting new ones.
What’s beautiful about the law of karma is that is pushes us to take a good long look at ourselves and makes us aware of all our thoughts, actions and words.
