An Extract From My Up-Coming Book


SUNRISE - MAHA SHIVARATRI 2013Here is an extract from my up-coming book Universal Law – An Idiot’s Guide

The purpose of the book is to explain how the universe functions and how this functionality affects the day-to-day lives of human beings. Of course, in line with all my other publications, it is my intention to make it as simple as possible to understand. Hope you enjoy this extract.

The Law of Karma

Another very, very simple law to understand; “karma” is a Sanskrit* word, meaning action. The action in this case is the action of cause and effect. Of course, the age-old adages of “what goes around comes around” and, “you reap what you sow” are other ways to explain the Law of Karma. However, the trouble with those sayings is they imply that karma means punishment; and nothing could be further from the truth.

A more correct way to explain this law is that we are responsible for all our actions in accordance with cause and effect. Because creation moves in cycles it stands to reason that whatever we create through our actions, be it negative or positive, will at some point return to us and we will have to deal with it.

The universe functions in a very non-judgemental way, in the same way that a tree will give shade and bear fruit for anyone, regardless of race or social status, therefore karma is simply the action of cause and effect as applied to humans.
