Instant Karma’s gonna get you
Gonna knock you right on the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you’re gonna be dead
What in the world you thinking of
Laughing in the face of love
What on earth you tryin’ to do
It’s up to you, yeah you…
–John Lennon from his song “Instant Karma (We All Shine On)”
Welcome, Spiritual Warrior, to another edition of The Source in which we explore the concept of karma.
Karma can be translated as action and is the culmination of all the actions, or choices) we have taken through out our lives: the ones we celebrate, the ones we regret, the conditional and unconditional ones, the knee-jerk ones and the purposeful ones.
Whether you believe in re-incarnation or not, doesn’t make karma real or not real – karma just is. And since we are living in this life right now, focusing on karma for a week will allow us to see all the actions we are taking right now – all the choices we make in each moment. Simply by placing our witnessing awareness on every interaction, email, text, phone call, and conversation… even the behaviors we exhibit to ourselves when we are alone… allows us to view the consequences of our actions. It is in the reflecting on the many plates we are spinning… the juggling… on the decisions we make every day.
Remember: [tweet_dis]We are never damned by the choices we’ve made IF we are willing to honestly own them[/tweet_dis], take responsibility for our thoughts, our words, and our actions, and commit to make better ones.
Don Miguel Ruiz teaches the agreement to ALWAYS DO OUR BEST. So this week, let’s commit to this powerful agreement with ourselves, and there will be fewer opportunities to regret our choices and more opportunities to make evolutionary ones.
Keep meditating!!! And I’ll see you in the GAP!!!
