Karma has many definitions and translations depending on what you read or who you ask. But at it’s base is a pure simple definition. From there all other interpretations and meanings modify the base meaning. But they do not change it’s pure meaning.
The base meaning of karma is simple. For every thought, desire, and action a person has either good or bad. The same will be returned to them either immediately or in the future. That is all there is to the base meaning of karma. Everything else you know or hear about karma is an expansion of it’s base meaning.
In Christianity karma can be summarized by this passage in the bible. Every person shall reap what one sows (Galatians 6:7). Here again this passage is a good definition of karma.
A common theme to theories of karma is its principle of causality. One of the earliest association of karma to causality occurs in the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad of Hinduism. For example it states:
“Now as a man is like this or like that,
according as he acts and according as he behaves, so will he be;
a man of good acts will become good, a man of bad acts, bad;
he becomes pure by pure deeds, bad by bad deeds;
And here they say that a person consists of desires,
and as is his desire, so is his will;
and as is his will, so is his deed;
and whatever deed he does, that he will reap”.
Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, 7th Century BCE
Okay so what, you might be saying. Why is this so important for me to learn. What will knowing more about karma do for my life. Karma is important in your life because it will centralize your focus on yourself and assist you in getting in tune with how you perceive yourself. How your thoughts are effecting your feelings. Then in turn how both of these are effecting your actions. Once you have a better understanding of how you perceive yourself and how you are feeling and acting towards others is effecting your life. You then can focus on areas of yourself that if changed would bring positive impact to your life. As you heal yourself and bring your life into a new positive direction. How you are perceived by and treat others will naturally improve and this in turn will have a positive effect on their life.
The ripple effect. As a pebble dropped in water that rolls out in all directions. As more people effect positive change to themselves more ripples will be created and at some point a tsunami will be created that will draw more and more people into this new positive way of life.
The ultimate goal of affecting the lives of people into a more positive existence together will bring about a calming effect to all the hatred and perceived differences among the people and nations of the world. That is when a shift to becoming a more peaceful world will start to be the new norm.
World peace will never be achieved by putting out a in your face loud movement. But will only reach a lasting effect when the personal attitude of each person in the world has changed.
Our message we are sharing with you is one that says using karma as your personal focus to improve your life through the realization that your own thoughts, desires and actions are the base problem in your life. Use karma to fix you. And then share the new you with all who you come in contact with.
The karma on our logo represents you. The dove and olive branch represents you willing to be open minded and look past differences in other people and live a peaceful existence with them.
Put a touch of karma in the palm of your hand and experience what happens next.

Have you every seen something bad happen to someone and either said yourself or heard someone say karma came back and got them. I personally have heard it too many times to count. I have yet to ask anyone if they believe in karma and get a no answer in return. So why is it that no one pays attention to karma unless it is coming back to someone in a negative way? Karma only gives consequences so as to guide you back to being a good person. Karma is not like breaking the laws. Where if you do not get caught you have no consequences. Karma sees all you think and do. Then returns the same back to you. Karma is absolute and has been at work in your life since you were born.
Open your mind for a minute to the possibility that in gods creation of us he also put in us a automatic system that rewards and punishes us for all of our thoughts, feelings and actions. Be them good or bad. We are societal creatures, not solitary. So within us is a inherent guiding principle of the difference between what is good or what is bad in our interaction and treatment of others. Read this research on very young children… HERE .
Lets take this thought a step further and say the in the creation of this guiding principle of good and bad he also added automatic rewards or consequences for the adherence to or failure there of. To exist in a society there has to be a basic set of rules that allows each of us to be a part of a society. Because here again we are not solitary creatures. Why can this basic set of rules not be within us?
It is within us, it is called karma. The bible does not call it karma it says that each person shall reap what they sow. Karma functions in each of us with rewards and consequences based solely 0n our thoughts, feelings, and actions and returns the same back to us in like kind. Just as god either blesses us or gives us consequences for what we sow. These two principles mirror each other.
One indicator that god is behind this automatic rewards and consequences system within us. Because god holds the trump card to everything. That card is called forgiveness. He can forgive you for mistakes made in your life. So the next time your karma is coming back upon you and is really hampering your happiness or situation in life. Seek gods forgiveness and get back in his good graces and in short order you will see a positive change in the karma coming back to you..
God gave us free will. But there are limits to this free will when it comes to being less than good to his other believers. And god personally does not to send his consequence every time you do something bad. It automatically comes back to you. Just as your life is enriched daily if you remain in his good graces. God is the almighty, I believe there is nothing he cannot do. But my mind has a hard time wrapping around the concept that he watches each of his billions of believers every second of every day. And hands out good graces or consequences every second of everyday to each of us. It makes more sense to me that this is automatically done.
At the end of our life when we stand in judgement god merely has to look at your life and where you are at in your karma cycle. And what kind of life you lived will be very apparent.
Karma is a missing link in your life. If you get in tune with yourself and closely have a look at your thoughts, feelings and actions towards yourself and others. Then look closely at how these are impacting your life. This self awareness will help you make meaningful changes to your life. Then have a ripple effect to all who you come in contact with.
The decision is your to make. If you open your mind to the base meaning of karma. Then apply these principles to yourself. You will begin a journey that will lead you to the life you seek. And this in turn will enrich the lives of those around you and begin the process of making a more peaceful world.
