Live a good and honorable life,

When you are older, you can look back and enjoy it a second time,

When you truly understand karma, then you realize you are responsible for everything in your life,

It is impossible to build one’s own happiness on the unhappiness of others,

This perspective is at the heart of Buddhist teachings.

The universe does not carry debts,

It always returns back to you what you gave it,

People pay for what they do, and still more,

For what they have allowed themselves to become,

And they pay for it simply: by the lives they lead.

Realize that everything connects to everything else,

How people treat you is their karma,

How you react is yours,

There are the waves, and there is the wind, seen and unseen forces, Everyone has these same elements in their lives,

The seen and unseen, karma and free will,

Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.

Your believing or not believing in karma has no effect on its existence, nor on its consequences to you,

Just as a refusal to believe in the ocean would not prevent you from drowning,

Sometimes you get what’s coming around,

And sometimes you are what’s coming around,

But this was what happened when you didn’t want to visit and confront the past;

The past starts visiting and confronting you.

This is your karma,

You do not understand now,

You will understand later,

Before you act, you have freedom,

But after you act, the effect of that action will follow you whether you want it to or not,

That is the law of karma,

If your actions were to boomerang back on you instantly,

Would you still act the same?

Most times how you treat your children is how they grow up to treat you,

The more love you give away,

The more love you will receive,

When someone has a strong intuitive connection,

Buddhism suggests that it’s because of karma some past connection,

Even chance meetings are the result of karma,

Things in life are fated by our previous lives,

That even in the smallest events there’s no such thing as coincidence.

The love you send into the world you will find is the love that returns to you,

When you plant a seed of love it is you that blossoms,

When the karma of a relationship is done only love remains,

Let go, It’s safe.

There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life—happiness, freedom, and peace of mind—are always attained by giving them to someone else.

Men are not punished for their sins but by them,

Karma: getting what you deserve and deserving what you get,

Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely,

Karma is extremely efficient, if one is extremely patient,

By each crime and every kindness, we birth our future,

Karma is justice,

It does not reward or punish, because we have to earn all that we receive,

It’s called karma, and it’s pronounced ha ha.

There’s a natural law of karma that vindictive people,

Who go out of their way to hurt others,

Will end up broke and alone,

If you’re really a mean person, you’re going to come back as a fly and eat poop,

You cannot do harm to someone because someone has done harm to you,

You will pay just like they will,

When karma comes back to punch you in the face, I want to be there,

Just in case it needs help.

That game of consequences to which we all sit down,

The hanger-back not least,

I want revenge but I don’t want to screw up my karma,

Often when someone hurts you,

They aren’t hurting you because you are you,

They are hurting you because they are them.

Karma is a tricky thing,

To serve karma, one must repay good karma to others,

To serve karma well, one must sometimes deliver bad karma where it is due,

Karma is like a rubber band,

You can only stretch it so far before it comes back and smacks you in the face,

Violence does in truth recoil upon the violent,

And the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another.

You might have burned me with your lies,

But karma is about to set you on fire,

You cannot do a kindness too soon,

For you never know how soon it will be too late,

I never kill insects,

If I see ants or spiders in the room,

I pick them up and take them outside, Karma is everything,

Show a little faith in someone when they need it,

It’s amazing how it comes back around to you,

Remember to honor the hand which reached out for you when you needed it,

By being that hand to someone else who is struggling,

In the long run, every man will pay the penalty for his own misdeeds,

The man who remembers this will be angry with no one, indignant with no one, revile no one, blame no one, offend no one, hate no one,

The meaning of karma is in the intention,

The intention behind action is what matters,

If you truly loved yourself, you could never hurt another.
