@Olivia Glad Come here and translate..
It is important to use the vernacular spoken here.
Languages are not neutral.
They convey very specific social and cultural behaviors and ways of thinking.
To understand from the Buddhist perspective, a useful starting point is to consider the Buddhist concept of mind.
The mind is non-physical.
It is formless, shapeless, colourless, genderless and has incredible possibilities.
The founding nature of mind is pure, limitless and pervasive, like the sun shining unobstructedly in a clear sky.
The concept of karma literally means action.
All of our actions lay down imprints on our mind which have the potential to ripen at some time in the future.
These actions can be positive, negative or neutral.
These karmic seeds are never lost.
The negative ones can ripen at any time in the form of problems or sickness; the positive ones in the form of happiness, health or success.
I understand this ^^ but why suddenly change the topic to buddhist stuff...
Why with this Buddhist thing all the time?
Once again, you blow me away with the depth of your perception expressed so well and with such elegant simplicity. There is a certain ‘other world’, yet ‘down to earth’ sanity in your words.
I think it kind of goes with Karma...
Karma is a Sanskrit word roughly translated to "action," a core concept in Hinduism and Buddhism.
This topic is one with Buddhists, I am one, obviously you are not, but who cares?
I've never even met an atheist until this moment, but who cares?
In Buddhism, mindfulness is a key practice, karma a key concept, but who cares?
A fool’s pursuit to the atheists, but who cares?
I take my leave, but who cares?
You need someone to hug you, bro
My dear wife and I practice this daily in our own way.
Hugging Meditation: Deepen Your Practice with a Mindful Embrace
Very nice that you should say that, thank you. We are talking of the workings of a mechanism that is giving all the best chance of moving forward as a collective. Nature is Karma and the nature of a person depends on the nature of the observer. Causes a stasis in natural terms. Karma.
We have denied nature the right to the selection that has been our vehicle to the present day. Might be price to pay for that. Depending on what you have already paid.
As the thieves return their bounty with the root from where it came and the murderer spills blood from another that runs deep, so the mind of a crossed man will revel in penance and a returning to justice.
Somewhere in the middle is Goldilocks.
I got an SMS with KARMA 2 days ago... It was from a family member.. 2 sentences and a smiley. It melted my heart. 3 years of silence was broken.
I'll just goldilocks until I find a sweet spot.
Extreme porridge diving for the sweet bits means you have to navigate the lumps.
A cumbersome task but worthy of merit to obtain the sweetness.
Karma is indeed something created by each person the law of the craft speaks clearly of this. Each act you do for good or ill will return to you. If not in this life then in the next. That is why you must seek that balance. Seek the good.
When one finds the center it is there you find peace. You must conduct your life in service. Your body is the shell you must maintain it to serve. Your mind must remain sharp clear and focused. Your soul must be open ready to accept the blessings that life gives you.
Not only does an action – or the energy that you send out with that action – come back to haunt you. It comes back, magnified several times over. So if you did steal money from someone, chances are that you’ll lose much, much more in your lifetime – or even inflict the punishment on future generations!
It is my hope I bring understanding.
I have a question related to karma .
Suppose I hurted someone unconsciously .the wheels of karma have set in action but in the meantime I realise my mistake and repent gravely so will I get my karma or will be forgiven ..?
I don't know what the various religions have to say about this, but I'm familiar with the pagan perspective, which boils down to intent. If you didn't intend harm, consciously, then you're in the clear.
What you're dealing with is simply regret. That's actually a healthy sign of growth; it means that your insight is deeper now than it was in the past, and based on that, you'd make a different choice with what you've learned. That's a good thing; you're a better person now than you were before. Growing is often painful, but it's a whole lot better than the alternative.
People who go around with no regrets are the worst kind of people because they either can't, or won't, learn from their mistakes and grow. Regret isn't something to avoid - it's the voice of wisdom whispering in your ear.
The best thing to do if you regret something you've said or done, is to make amends. Having the humility to go to somebody and say "you know what? I fucked up, and I'm sorry. I should've done xyz instead of abc." It's amazing how much that can mean to somebody, so you should never miss an opportunity to do it.
