Karma Is Being Accountable
We are accountable for every action (being occupied) or inaction (being vacant). This adds to our karma. Our karma creates situations that are favourable (we like) or unfavourable (we dislike).
To a practitioner, neither type of situation make a difference; it all becomes one taste – just a situation. If we cling to favourable or unfavourable situations and make a meal of them,
we add to our karmic account.
As we sow, so we reap and an eye for an eye both mean that we are looking in a mirror. We blame others, and they blame us – and we play politics.
A contemplative life neutralises karma. We focus more on conscious awareness than on the world’s karma. Whatever we try to do in life to improve the world, people will still cause trouble, adding to their karmic account.
Meditation is adding to neither the world’s problems, nor our personal karmic account.
