Wheel of Fortune
Reap a Karmic Reward
Every first year physics student knows Newton’s Third Law of Physics: “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” Yogis call this the Law of Karma, where you create both happiness and unhappiness through your actions and thoughts. If what you sow is what you reap, surely you can eliminate “bad” karma by living consciously and doing good deeds. Even if you believe that karma follows you from previous lifetimes and affects your present life from birth, there are ways to mitigate the effects of karma’s wheel.
The way to balance your karmas (the results of your actions) is to practice dharma, which means “a path of righteous duty.” Yogi Bhajan taught, “Where there is Dharma there is no Karma.” Practice those behaviors that create upliftment for yourself and others. Eat consciously, meditate deeply, live in gratitude and serve others. What goes around comes around, so commit yourself to sending only your very best into the universe through your daily actions. You will be sure to reap the rewards!
