What is Karma and is it out to get you? Do you ever feel that you’ve lost it and so it must be Karma come to get you for something you’ve done but can’t imagine what it could be?
Do you ever feel like you’re losing it and don’t know how to escape your predicament?
I feel that all the time but is it Karma?
And how should we deal with it when it shows up?
What if it’s not Karma at all?
It could be Destiny.
One gem of wisdom I learned from my friend the librarian (see earlier post) was that the Cosmos seeks balance.
Which is one reading of the meaning of the Yin/Yang symbol.
Always in a state of balance, flowing from one to the other as one becomes greater than the other, the black and white areas indicate the perfect balance of everything down to ourselves and our lives.
As one grows the other diminishes seeking balance.
So with our own lives.
Expressed in a law of physics Karma can be stated as Newton’s Third Law of Motion, that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
I’ve learned that Karma, then, is our lives seeking balance, not punishment.
Neither good nor bad.
It is what it is.
So our actions which may have been out of sync with the Cosmos need to be addressed.
In which case, letting go and allowing yin and yang to take its course, I’ve found to be the best way to go.
Certainly, not to fight it.
