Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. Karma literally means “deed, or act”. Think of karma as the spiritual equivalent of Newton’s third Law of Motion…
That is to say, that whenever an object pushes another object, it gets pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard.
Everything we have ever thought, spoken, done or caused is karma. Also what we think, speak or do, this very moment.
Discussions of karma were first referenced in the texts of the Puranas, a vast genre of Indian literature about a wide range of topics, particularly myths, legends and other traditional lore.
The following is the text of the 12 Laws of Karma, taken from the short video above. It’s a simplified version of 12 karmic laws.
1. The Great Law
As you sow, so shall you reap. This is also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect”.
2. The Law of Creation
Life doesn’t just happen. It requires our participation.
3. The Law of Humility
You can’t change something if you refuse to accept it.
4. The Law of Growth
When we change who and what we are within our hearts, our lives follow suit and change too.
We must take responsibility for what is in our life.
6. The Law of Connection
Neither the first step nor the last are of greater significance, as they were both needed to accomplish the task.
7. The Law of Focus
You cannot think of two things at the same time.
8. The Law of Giving and Hospitality
Give without expectation of receiving anything in return.
9. The Law of Here and Now
Looking backward to examine what was or forward to worry about the future, prevents us from being totally in the here and now.
10. The Law of Change
History repeats itself until we learn the lessons we need to learn.
11. The Law of Patience and Reward
True joy comes from doing what we’re supposed to be doing, and knowing that the reward will come in its own time.
12. The Law of Significance and Inspiration
The true value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it.
