Everything that you say, think or do unto others directly affects the lessons you experience across lifetimes. This is the basis of karma, which is really an energy feedback process.
Karma started out as an Indian concept. However, it has spread to a wide range of cultures in a wide range of countries, not least because of the incredible influence of Indian religions. In short, karma is the concept that a person’s actions in the present will determine that same individual’s circumstances in the times to come. As such, good actions will lead to good results, while bad actions will lead to bad results.
Beyond this life
Often-times, the concept of karma comes hand-in-hand with the concept of reincarnation. When this is true, good karma from a past life make for better luck as well as a higher station in the present life, while bad karma from a past life make for worst luck as well as a lower station in the present life. In some versions, karma can even cause individuals to be reborn as members of either superior or inferior species, though this is very much reliant on the exact beliefs of the exact religion.
How should we behave in light of Karma?
The concept of karma isn’t particularly unusual. In fact, it is very similar in its essential message to a number of other principles from other cultures. As a result, the lessons are much the same as well.
In short, if someone wants to live well, they should treat other people well. Moreover, it is important to note that karma is something that can pick up a momentum of its own because the more that people behave in a particular manner, the more that they become accustomed to it. In effect, this means that someone who does good will find it easier to continue doing good, while someone who does evil will find it easier to continue doing evil, thus making it that much more important for interested individuals to start out right so that they won’t have to engage in an uphill struggle against their own bad habits.
