The Twelve Laws Of Karma

The Dalai Lama, in his book describing the “Path to Bliss,” wrote, “Some people misunderstand the concept of karma. They take the Buddha’s doctrine of the law of causality to mean that all is predetermined, that there is nothing that the individual can do. This is a total misunderstanding.” This, of course, is absolutely correct. Karma is not “resigned fatalism.” Far from it. There is tremendous free will evidenced in this doctrine; we are each perceived as masters of our own destiny. Stated simply, karma is the law of cause and effect, one of the most basic truths in the universe!
The Laws of Karma instruct us how to free ourselves from the cage of destiny.
As you sow, so shall you reap. This is also known as the Law of Cause and Effect. Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us. If what we want is Happiness, Peace, Friendship, Love… Then we should BE Happy, Peaceful, Loving, a Friend.
Life doesn’t just HAPPEN, it requires our participation. We are one with the Universe both inside and out. Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. BE and DO yourself… what you what to have in your Life.

3) THE LAW OF HUMILITYWhat you refuse to accept, will continue for you. If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.

4) THE LAW OF GROWTH Wherever you go, there you are. For us to GROW in Spirit it is we who must change and not the people, places or things around us. The only given we have in our lives is OURSELVES and that is the only factor we have control over. When we change who and what we are within our heart our life changes too.

5) THE LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY Whenever there is something wrong, there is something wrong in me. We mirror what surrounds us and what surrounds us mirrors us We must take responsibility what is in our life.

6) THE LAW OF CONNECTION Even if something we do seems inconsequential, it is very important that it gets done as everything in the Universe is connected. Each step leads to the next step and so forth and so on …

“You can’t think of two things at the same time.”
Be pure of thought and pure of intent.  Stay single-minded and focus on tasks at hand.

“If you believe something to be true, then sometime in your life you must demonstrate that truth.”
In other words, practice what you preach!  In order to have values in life, we must first practice those values.

“You can’t go home again, but you must try.”
We must examine our past in order to learn from it, but we can never go back into our past. Dwelling on old dreams prevent us from having new ones. Life moves forward, and so must we.

“The more things change, the more they stay the same.”
History will repeat itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.

“When you focus on your life, good things will happen.”
All rewards require initial toil.  Anything that is good and worth lasting value will require patience and persistence.  True joy follows doing what we’re suppose to be doing and waiting for the reward to come in its own time.

“What you put into it, you will get back.”
The Law of Reciprocity, Cause and Effect, and Karma! The value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it.  Every personal contribution is also a contribution to the whole.
