Before I ramble on about Karma, I’ll give you a tiny insight as to what the karma theory really is. In technical terms, it is the application of the law of cause and effect to moral experience. It suggests that, all actions either good or bad, deliver the results of the actions in that very life.

Karma’s each and every action we take in our entire life span. The deeds, the gestures, irrespective of the circumstances we’re pushed into. No one but us can be held accountable for our deeds, not even at a gunpoint. Our karma is a reflection of us; no soul other than ours is responsible. It is the only medium to attain salvation.

Before I ramble on about Karma, I’ll give you a tiny insight as to what the karma theory really is. In technical terms, it is the application of the law of cause and effect to moral experience. It suggests that, all actions either good or bad, deliver the results of the actions in that very life. The karma theory can be truly understood only known by a person who has established control over their mind. Ones who can control their desires, their emotions, are free from worldly pleasure and pain, their karma is devoted towards betterment of the humankind.

We, human beings generally strive towards worldly pleasures. Every single day, we run to find peace, as well as, to gain materialistic wealth. However, when we do manage to get hold of everything, there is an array of other things we want. So, we start running again, behind those ever ending needs and wants. Truth be told, one question arises in my mind, that what is wrong in craving for more? I believe there is nothing wrong.
Nonetheless, in this process of making a better tomorrow, we lose the best we have that is today. We are so busy busting our asses after the result of our karma, we go a little blind. We would regret not living in present, won’t we?

Our soul survived the past, and it sure will survive the present. But, what if it fails to ‘live’ in present? Are you going to be okay with the fact that you lost your present?

Who we are today, we are because of our past, whether it is good or bad. What we will be tomorrow will be due to our present. Our karma in the past affect our present and the ones in present will affect our future. This is the vicious circle of life; the principle of karma. We face the principles of karma in our same life. We are here to judge ourselves on the basis of our needs and desire, but by our karma.

Believing in the karma theory and actually implementing the beliefs of this theory are two different things. The one who believes in it lives in the midst to attain peace. Nevertheless the one, who understands it, is on the way of the agony of spiritualism.

This theory may not be valid in today’s life. However, if we feel and try to understand it then they exist in any era. They are a universal truth. And I am not the only one who believes this, so does Shrimad Bhagwad Gita.
