Karma Is Not Fate
Fate: that which has been spoken, making it inevitable that something will happen.
Karma: the sum of a person’s previous actions, either beneficial or harmful.
Fate suggests that results cannot be changed.
Karma suggests that the result can be changed.
Fate is a feeling that change cannot take place. The way we speak and act causes the same scenarios, and so we go round in circles.
Karma can be seen as the effects of our past coming into play now, but we can use this behaviour as our direct teacher and guide to enlightenment.
There are many levels of understanding,
depending on our realisation and our confusion.
Karma is both our confusion and our teacher
– and our path to enlightenment.
Are we a karmic positive person or a fateful negative person?
