Our Basic Message To You.

 Our Karma Logo

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.

Take Responsibility for yourself

Each day you can take more responsibility for your life.

Take ResponsibilityWhen you focus on the actions and inactions of others, you give away your power… because you cannot create for them. When you focus on your actions and inactions, you tap into your power… because you can only create for yourself. When you take responsibility for yourself, you begin to heal, And in this healing your karma is set on the path to improvement.

Karma is just karma…

Karma is just Karma
You can call a horse what ever you want to but the reality will always be that it is just a horse.
Karma literally means “deed or act,” but more broadly describes the principle of cause and effect. Simply stated, karma is the law of action and reaction which governs consciousness. In physics-the study of energy and matter-Sir Isaac Newton postulated that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Push against a wall. Its material is molecularly pushing back with a force exactly equal to yours. In metaphysics, karma is the law that states that every mental, emotional and physical act, no matter how insignificant, is projected out into the psychic mind substance and eventually returns to the individual with equal impact.

InfinityKarma is the principle of cause and effect. You cause a something good to happen you will get something good in return. Also true is if you cause or do something bad. Then that is what will come back to you. You can add what you like to karma. But the base definition of karma will be just that. You cause it, you receive it in return.

In some faiths they believe in reincarnation. So if you have good karma then in your next life you will be reincarnated to a better life. If you lived a life of bad karma then you are reincarnated to a worse form of being. Reincarnation is the ultimate reward or penality you receive at the end of this life. Based on the level of good or bad karma you attained in this life and previous lives. If this is your belief, That is your choice to do.

In the christian religion if you live your life free of sin or and have accepted Jesus as your lord and savior. Then you are at the resurection are rewarded everlasing life. If you do not live your life following god’s word and live a life of sin then you are punished and go to a everlasting place called hell.

I am a person that likes to look at things in their simplest form and form my opinion starting at that point. Karma is karma and is the law of cause and effect, based solely on a persons thoughts motivations and actions. The punishment or rewards of karma is the same no matter what your beliefs are. Simply put. If you put out goodwill towards others, good will will return to you. If you put out hate and disrespect towards others. Then that is what shall return to you.

It is our personal choice to believe where we will go at the end of this life. Under most beliefs you move on to another existence at the end of this life. Whether it is a better or worse existence is based on the kind of person you lived your life being. But one thing is pretty much a given. Is that you will not be liking where you begin your next life, if you live a life of bad karma in this life.

Just as a horse is a horse no matter what you want to call it. Karma is just karma in it’s pure base meaning. If you put good karma to work for you in your daily life. You will soon be reaping the new you that you are now sowing.

Put a touch of karma in the palm of your hand..

 

Karma-Logo-My-Design-1-300x244The dove and olive branch is one of the most ancient symbols of peace.
The story of the dove and the olive first appeared in the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark as mentioned in Genesis 8 :11-

The olive branch also is a symbol of a new beginnings. When the dove returned with the olive branch, Noah and the others knew that the waters had subsided and now it was about time to start a new beginning with Our Heavenly Father,

Today, “extending an olive branch” is a phrase often used for when people make efforts to resolve fights or disputes, big and small.

For-Logo-1-300x60The Simpliest definition for karma is found in the bible. For whatever a person shall soweth that they shall also reap. All of our positive words, thoughts and commands lead to beneficial effects for a person.  Bad deeds, words, thoughts, and commands lead to harmful effects. These effects are not necessarily immediate.  But their effects will come back to you.

logo-200The Putting together of Dove and olive branch and the principles of karma in their basic forms creates a foundation for bringing peace and harmony to your life. Bringing calmness and inner peace to yourself. Will influence all your thoughts, feelings and actions with those around you. Karma is about you. You create your own karma through all your thoughts, feelings and actions. The dove and olive branch is a symbol of you sharing your inner peace to be at peace with the rest of the world.

To bring positive change to your life you must first bring positive change to all your thoughts, feelings and how you perceive you. Next you must have a greater respect and compassion for those around you. And these two are made possible by you taking full responsibility for all your thoughts, feelings and actions towards your self and all others.

Ying YangDo these three things and you will be in balance with yourself and those around you. You will experience a inner peace and harmony that will bring contentment and happiness into your life.

The ying yang here represents balance of the inner and outter you. When each is equal you will be at peace and in harmony with yourself  and the rest of the world
