Guiding Principles of Karma to Make Your Life Better


buddha

As cliché as it sounds, karma is the result of what we do in life. It is believed that if people do something good, it will yield a positive outcome. In reverse, if somebody does a bad deed, surely it will lead to a consequence.

For example, you have wronged someone accidentally. It doesn’t matter if it was unintentional, it will still revert back to you.

Undeniably, this has been a guiding principle for a lot of us for ages.

Obviously, all of us want things to turn out positively. For this to happen, we need to be conscious of every little thing we do.

Here is a list of ways how the principle of karma can make our lives better.

1. Gearing ourselves towards our goals

Having a good mindset invites positive karma. Set your goals in life and always tell yourself that you MUST be there no matter what or no matter how long it will take you.

Eliminate the things that usually cause you some distractions and block your path to success.

It is normal and understandable if you get tired along the way. REST for a while. RECHARGE. Re-examine yourself. But NEVER entertain the idea of quitting.

It is not easy. Failure is a friend you will encounter in your journey to success. Mistakes, shortcomings, and setbacks are all part of it. Take all of these positively. Look at them as important lessons and learn from them. These will be helpful in your quest for triumph.



2. Reconnect with the World

This concerns with what is happening at present time.

Stay focused on what is happening now. Making yourself a prisoner of the past will hinder you from keeping with the passing of time.

Do not spend too much time contemplating on what is going to happen in the future. Life changes in just a snap of our fingers. The fact that life is very unpredictable makes us anxious about what is in store for us.

Just live each day by engaging yourself with the present moment. Make each day the best day of your life.


3. Being responsible

Not all of us has the guts to take full responsibility for our actions.

Bad karma occurs when someone has done a bad deed whether intentional or not. Sometimes, it is difficult to understand and much more accept the consequences of our actions.

But it can still turn the other way around. You can invite good karma if you are willing to claim the consequences of your deeds. Accepting the result of our actions, no matter how unpleasant it could be, is a way of eliminating the negativity in ourselves.


4. Just Laugh it Out Loud

Chill. Do not take things very seriously.

As the popular saying goes, laughter is the best medicine. Being able to laugh at things in life makes us take each aspect of it lightly.

You, like everybody else, are not perfect. You are prone to committing mistakes. Learn how to treat these mistakes as lessons on how you can make things better next time. Failures should not bring you down.

Do not make it too hard for yourself. By doing this, you are letting the positivity fill you, thus, inviting good karma in your life.


5. Patience Is the Key

One best way of inviting good karma in your life is by maintaining your inner peace. The world should not stress you out. Learn how you can become tolerant of the things which are totally out of your control.

We easily lose our temper when things don’t turn out the way we want them to be. This happens especially in those instances when we feel that the world around us is against our great desires.

It really takes time, some of us say. Relax. Sooner or later, you will get to your destination.


6. Exhibit Kindness

We always hear the advice that teaches us to be kind to others. Undeniably, this is one of the best ways to have good karma come into your life. But this doesn’t exclude you from the list of persons you can be kind with.

Do the things that make yourself happy more often. Smile more and let that smile of yours uplift others’ feelings.

If you feel satisfied with how you see life in general, being kind will just be a piece of cake for you.


7. Familiarize Yourself with Changes

Change is inevitable. What makes it difficult for us to accept it is our inability to cope up with the differences it brought upon our lives.

But this is not entirely bad. In fact, it should encourage us to become more open-minded about the endless possibilities in life. Preparing ourselves for anything that could happen is the first key in dealing with changes.

In addition, this suggests for us not stay too long in our comfort zones. Learn to explore and not be scared of it. Keep the positive vibes no matter what.

We are wishing that this has shed some light on you. Let the good karma happen in your life!
