Truth of Karma
The doctrine of karma is based on the act of cause and effect. In short, we can say the wisdom behind realizing karma is base on the act of our own good and bad deeds in our life. God cannot be execrable for any of our situations, be it our success or failure. Karma is way beyond ourselves and the truth of karma is complex to understand. It plays its role in studying our pattern of actions in our day to day life. Human beings should understand what goes around comes back to us. We, humans, are solely responsible for the consequences of our own behavior. In Buddhism it is said to live is to suffer.
The major principles for the truth of karma are:
Existence is suffering- Whether we talk about the acute pain of a wound or a chronic pain of a headache, loss of someone very close to us or being left alone by our lover. Everything that exists is suffering and cause a lot of pain in our lives.
Suffering comes from desire- Suffering is the result because of our own craving for things. We human being have a lot of desires around which we run and forget the truth of karma. Our very systems depend mostly on the satisfaction we get by achieving a certain level in life.
A way to put an end to suffering is through attaining nirvana. It is simply to come out of greed, anger, jealousy and many another such factor.
Through Moderation also you can put an end. It consists of:
View to understand the right things.
Right Action in life and in our daily behavior.
Good and right effort towards life.
A mind full of meditation and positive thought.
Positive attitude towards life.
It labors the point of moderation and seeks virtue in everything around us.
The truth of karma and the law of karma is different for everyone. One believes in it and might be the other does not. Just like in the west, they do not believe in the wisdom of karma. They have faith in the concept and idea of reincarnation. They refuse to believe in the reincarnation of a soul to another living organism. Imagining that you could be a human being in one life and an animal in the other life, is a common idea of transmigration that is very difficult for some of us to understand. and accept. No serious study is done on the concept of karma on the west and they deny the fact of the law of karma. Western culture refuses to truly understand the spiritual and mystical forces in the soul and in nature.
Whereas, in the east people believe in reincarnation and hold an extreme trust in the idea and truth of karma. These people have started taking responsibilities for their actions. Hoping that with this attitude, one day they might receive peace of body and mind. A human being is it in any part of the world, should understand we are responsible for our own karma.
Recovering from karma
Recovering from karma means to apologize for the mistakes of past life in this life. Getting hurt for our past life mistakes in this life. For instance, if one slay someone in his past life, it is for sure he will experience what it is like to be assassinated in his present form of life. We have heard this often, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. This is true. We are paid by the actions we do. The fruit of our deeds is beard by us in this life itself. By reaping the mistakes this way, one understands the value of life, and they know how precious life is.
The way to Surmount Negative Karma
Negative karma is born from the selfish and bad desires that we temp continuously during our life. The method to surpass the pattern of our action and mistakes we are repeating is to understand and be aware of the wrong tendencies of the soul that are the cause of our suffering. We cannot change our karma unless we make efforts to confront our own desires. The reason behind our unhappiness is the result of our bad karma.
The truth of karma is the intent and the actions of an individual which influence the future of the individual.
