My friend Thomas and I were talking yesterday, and he said:
Karma isn’t earned, it’s burned.
Immediately I knew that would have to be posted here!
Karma isn’t earned, it’s burned. It’s not so much that acts of goodness create good karma, although of course they put more goodness into the world and hopefully make you feel better at the same time.
It’s more that when you have been hooked into an untrue belief, that belief can warp your perspective and your behavior.
When you are able to release the belief and the distorted perspective that accompanied it, you are burning up karma.
It fundamentally liberates you.
