The word KARMA simply means “action;” but the principle, or law, of karma is taught in every religion and culture in the world. In the Bible, this law is stated as, “As you sow, so shall you reap.” In plain English, if you plant beets you can’t expect to harvest tomatoes. Every thought, word, and deed in our lives is a seed which we plant in the world. All our lives, we harvest the fruits of those seeds. If the seeds are full ofanger, fear, greed, desire, and doubt, then so will our lives be. If the seeds contain love, kindness and understanding, then our lives will as well. This is not a moral or philosophical teaching; it’s simply a law of energy. Karma is the way the universe works. As you often hear in prisons, “What comes around goes around.” That’s karma.
