Thought for today..
From my good pal, wikipedia.com
"Karma is not fate, for humans act with free will creating their own destiny. According to the Vedas, if we sow goodness, we will reap goodness; if we sow evil, we will reap evil."
"We reap what we sow."
"Related to sowing and reaping, Madame Chiang Kai-shek once wrote:
"If the past has taught us anything it is that every cause brings its effect, every action has a consequence. We Chinese have a saying: "If a man plants melons he will reap melons; if he sows beans, he will reap beans." And this is true of everyone's life; good begets good,and evil leads to evil. True enough, the sun shines on the saint and the sinner alike, and too often it seems that the wicked prosper. But we can say with certainty that, with the individual as with the nation, the flourishing of the wicked is an illusion, for,unceasingly, life keeps books on us all. In the end, we are all the sum total of our actions. Character cannot be counterfeited, nor can it put on and cast off as if it were a garment to meet the whim of the moment. Like the markings on wood which are ingrained in the very heart of the tree, character requires time and nurturing for growth and development. Thus also, day by day, we write our own destiny; forinexorably...we become what we do."
Borrowed from here:
Just a small idea. I fully believe in Karma. Ideas of Karma and Buddhism really intrigue me. It's fascinating to read about. Things that they *knew* or discussed 100's of years ago. Just incredible. Just a thought for the day. Please sow goodness everyone! XOXO Heather :)
