stegi.io 20/01 Karma and Dharma
- If you buy a car, you create KARMA, your Karma being the effort and suffering you have to go through to keep it “yours”. You have to buy it petrol, maintain it, pay the instalments and insurance and government registration; these things are the Karma you have created by purchasing the car. You also create pollution and road deterioration, so your Karma is not limited to you, for it spreads into the community too. Then, when your car becomes scrap, you have been part of the creation of ecological damage.
- What about DHARMA? Dharma is linked to your desires and your need for fame. Dharma is the spiritual element in you that “pushes” you into the decisions you make in life. You can buy a simple car to get you to golf and shopping and your place of work, or your Dharma can motivate you to buy a pink hot-rod because you love the art form of that pink hot-rod. Perhaps you are motivated by the fame you feel when impressing your friends
- Whatever your Dharma, it eventually becomes your Karma, and your Karma only changes when you change your Dharma. Karma and Dharma are based on oriental philosophies but Jesus called it “being born again”. So you can dump your pink hot-rod and walk in sandals any time you chose to change your Dharma with the aim of changing your Karma.
