Join me this week as I take a hike around the hills and talk about the concept of karma. Each spiritual tradition has ideas about why bad things happen in the world. Karma, in a traditional sense, is a form of cosmic justice that ensures we all eventually reap what we sow. But is this really true?
If the force of karma does exist how does this tie-in with free will? Is life really just a game and all of us simply players? Are we destined to play out our karmic roles or can we assert our free will and make new choices? Rather than believing that an external force will hold us accountable for our actions, we can decide to be our own teacher and learn by our mistakes. As William Blake said, “The fool who persists in his folly becomes wise.” and what better place to play the fool than here.
