What’s Karma ?

Yesterday , I was teaching my younger sister about photosynthesis and she suddenly burst out , “What is Karma ?”. I was startled , I didnt expect this from her . I was telling her ,its about what goes around comes around , much like Justin Timberlake’s song . She didnt get a thing . But that’s exactly what karma is about . If you hurt someone at some point , its going to boomerang back at you some or the other day .
                                                   The “3” types of Karma
Sanchita Karma, the sum total of past karmas yet to be resolved.
Prarabdha Karma, that portion of sanchita karma that is to be experienced in this life.
Kriyamana Karma, the karma that humans are currently cth76VEZ2V6.jpgreating, which will bear fruit in future.
The law of karma can be applied to our daily activities , business decision ,etc . This is the main reason why almost everyone advises to treat others with compassion and not condemn. Its an action-reaction system  .
                                                       Just World Phenomenon
The Just-World phenomenon is much like Karma .
The Just-World phenomenon is when people think that, because someone has bad things happen to them, they did something to deserve the bad things.
Some concepts of Karma :
1. The law of humility.
The law of humility states that if you won’t ever change anything if you refuse to accept it. If we see our opposition as an enemy then we are simply not focused on our higher level of existence and will make no meaningful progress.
2. The law of creation.
The law of creation states that life doesn’t simply happen, but that it requires your participation. That which surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. Truly, we are the universe. The takeaway is to be yourself and surround yourself with what you want in life.
3. The law of growth.Karmic-Stone-The-Hamsa-Hand-carved-Stone-Art-Tile-a09bb3c6-9ab2-42b6-88de-517d3daf33e3_320
The law of growth states that if you want your spirit to grow, we must change, not the people and things around us. The fertilizer for our spirits to grow is within us, not outside of us. When we change our hearts, we change our worlds.
4. The law of responsibility.
The law of responsibility states that if there’s something wrong in your life, there’s something actually wrong with you. What surrounds us mirrors us, and we mirror what’s around us. So in the end, to change yourself, you have to change yourself. Makes sense, right? You have to take responsibility for yourself.
5. The law of connection.
The law of connection states that even if two things seem like they aren’t connect, it’s not the case. Everything in the universe is connected. The left foot taking a step is connected to the right foot taking the next step. Equally, past, present, and future are all connected.
6. The law of giving.
The law of giving states that in life, when you give, you get. If you hoard and miser your way through this world, if you keep your arms crossed and your doors locked, doors you’d like to unlock never will. If you want an open, free, and beautiful world, you have to make it so.
7. The law of focus.
The law of focus states that you can’t think of two things at once. Indeed, science backs it up, noting that you can only think about one and a half things at once. This is what allows us to converse. You are listening to the person thinking, and then your half thought is what you think as they’re speaking. Makes sense to spend a little time thinking before you speak, doesn’t it?
8. The law of presence.
The law of presence states that while it’s important to look to the past to understand where we’re going, it’s equally important to exist in the present and not be too concerned about the future.

FOCUS !

This is my very FIRST post . I searched around myself just gazing through what I would write about and I thought I would search Mr.Internet for some inspiration .I kept searching , 1 HOUR , 2 HOUR, no damn idea no damn inspiration .  My mind kept preaching , “Well there is literally nothing for you to write about , just quit this whole thing” .I paused for a second , my hands stopped typing and my eyes were unglued from the screen . I paused to see myself . From all the things that were wrong in me I could see that I dont have something that no one has .

Its FOCUS.

We all move with the velocity of this world to strive for perfection . But to be honest , no one does that . We slave ourselves towards television , phones and pleasing people . We should evolve to be someone better than that . When we pause our life for a second and think about our bloody existence ..there is nothing .Our souls don’t exist anymore , we exist only as a a person bounded by rules that don’t define our lives .

The only way how we are going to end this , is by developing RUTHLESS FOCUS on the things that we love.

When you think about this , the question of how? pops out . Well the only way that helped is by getting down to actually develop focus . When we want something really bad no matter what it is ,we get it . Once you understand what you need you’ll get it . There are a lot of sources on how to gain focus . The articles of Mike Cernovich from dangerandplay.com truly helped me do it . http://www.dangerandplay.com/2015/06/03/how-to-develop-ruthless-focus/ .
