Karma is not as simple as you might think it is. Sure, if we do good we receive good but there is a lot more to it than that.

Karma is something prominent throughout Buddhist and Hinduist cultures. It is the sum of a persons’ actions in this and previous states of their existence. This is something that decides their fate in the current and future existences to come. It is something that many people believe in and for some can be crippling to their potential.

Below I am going to go over some of the things you most likely did not know about Karma. While Karma is not something that will completely damn you, it is something you have to overcome if you have negative Karma. It can make or break your life depending on how you choose to face it and in the end decides far more than you could ever imagine.

9 Things You Don’t Know About Karma:

1. Karma’s purpose is to free us.

Karma is not meant to hurt you. It is here to free you from the mistakes you made in the past. Through Karma, you are able to move forward in life.

2. You can change your Karma if you work hard enough.

You can work to change your Karma from bad to good if you truly wish to. You can make a change if you work hard enough. While it will not be easy if you prove that you are genuinely trying, it will all work out in the end.

3. Karma is not here to make us suffer.

Karma is not here to make us all feel like shit. It is not a form of punishment. It is meant to help us heal and move forward not to make us suffer. It can only do what we allow it to do, if we do not want to be torn down, we should work to build others up.

4. Karma catches up to everyone at some point.

No matter who you are Karma will always find you in the end. Sure, some people seem to dodge it better than others but they will all come to terms with their past in the end. Not a single person in this world goes without paying their Karmic debts.

5. We are the only people who create our own Karma.

Karma is not something others decide for us. It is something we create for ourselves on our own. Do not try to blame anyone else for your Karmic debt.

6. Efforts count if you never try you will never succeed.

If you want to change your Karma you need to put your best foot forward. You cannot just complain about things and never take action. If you never make an effort, things will always be the way they are now.

9. Ignoring it will never make it go away.

Karma is not something that you can just ignore. The more you ignore it or deny its existence the worse it will become. While it might be hard to face, it is important.
