What Is Karma, And How Can We See It?
We see karma in our behaviour.
Our behaviour is karma,
and karma creates our behaviour.
Karma is a Sanskrit word for the results of actions;
the cause of an effect.
Reactions in the mind are products from our past. If we keep reacting with the same mindset, then we shouldn’t expect a different outcome.
If we want change, we have to stop our reactions by allowing space within those reactions for clarity to see clearly. Every time we react, our karmic programme is rewriting itself, maintaining the same personality, and same behaviour. By disregarding karma, we lose insight into potential dangers. We shouldn’t be careless, as insufficient attention creates suffering: if a lorry is heading towards you, get out of the way!
If we are happy with the way we are, then why change? If, however, we feel there is more to us than earning money, being in a family or entertaining ourselves, then we need to investigate, looking more closely at what we truly are.
We are free and liberated from everything and everyone, and that is how we can truly love – being one with rather than attached to! When we are free of reacting to karmic control, then karma is a very subtle teacher.

Being totally free of karma is purity of being:
