I guess it's fair to say that I believe in a simple form of Karma. Officially, Karma is defined as: a law in Hinduism which maintains that every act done, no matter how insignificant, will eventually return to the doer with equal impact. Good will be returned with good; evil with evil. The Christian version of this same concept is found in Galatians where it says: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. We create with our words, thoughts and actions. Knowing this helps me keep my negative choices in check, for the most part. I always strive to be positive, so that only positive will return to me. Easier said than done. The older I get, the easier it is to see the influence of simple choices and decisions. What seemed insignificant at the time has proven to be pivotal moments in hindsight. I do not take anything for granted anymore... and I also realize that I have to make the "positive" choice every second of every day.
Today was a day that we saw this phenomenon in action. Good people with good intentions and good actions will reap the rewards of their choices. Those who choose otherwise will also experience the consequences of their actions. Of this I am confident. To be on the positive end of this energy is always grace. And it certainly helps make the positive choice when the next opportunity arises.
