Karma means action. It makes up one-third of the software of your soul. Memories lead to desires which result in actions which leaves memories and the cycle repeats. When you act you create a wave of energy. Imagine it traveling outward and bouncing off a wall. As you travel down the path of life the reflection returns to you and you experience that energy again. You reap what you sow. Every action you generate returns to you in kind. The lesson you should learn from this is that it is wise to become a conscious choice maker. Your life at this moment is a result of your previous choices. Do you make conscious choices or react based on old conditioning? Does your heart and mind agree when you act? It is best to pause before you act and pay attention to your heart. It is the seat of your soul, is intuitive and has an eternal perspective. Your ego makes decisions based on fears, power and security. Listening solely to your ego will keep you enslaved to a karmic debt. When you allow your heart to consider the consequences before you act you will experience either a sensation of comfort or discomfort. Listening to your heart will bring you happiness and fulfillment now and in the future.
