1. ow people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.
2. Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.
3. When you see a good person, think of becoming like her/him. When you see someone not so good, reflect on your own weak points.
4. Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are. What goes around comes around. That’s how it works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you the revenge that you deserve.
5. Even if things don’t unfold the way you expected, don’t be disheartened or give up. One who continues to advance will win in the end.
6. If you’re really a mean person you’re going to come back as a fly and eat poop.
7. If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.
8. I was in the biggest breakdown of my life when I stopped crying long enough to let the words of my epiphany really sink in. That whore, karma, had finally made her way around, and had just bitch-slapped me right across the face. The realization only made me cry harder.
9. Even chance meetings are the result of karma… Things in life are fated by our previous lives. That even in the smallest events there’s no such thing as coincidence.
10. it is impossible to build one’s own happiness on the unhappiness of others. This perspective is at the heart of Buddhist teachings.
11. Life is painful. It has thorns, like the stem of a rose. Culture and art are the roses that bloom on the stem. The flower is yourself, your humanity. Art is the liberation of the humanity inside yourself.
12. Is Fate getting what you deserve, or deserving what you get?
13. The law is simple. Every experience is repeated or suffered till you experience it properly and fully the first time.
14. Like gravity, karma is so basic we often don’t even notice it.
15. Those who pray for your downfall are concentrating negative thoughts towards you, without taking cognisance of the slippery ground in which they are standing, which could lead to their downfall.
16. Not only is there often a right and wrong, but what goes around does come around, Karma exists, chickens do come home to roost, and as my mother, Phyllis, liked to say, “There is always a day of reckoning.” The good among the great understand that every choice we make adds to the strength or weakness of our spirits—ourselves, or to use an old fashioned word for the same idea, our souls. That is every human’s life work: to construct an identity bit by bit, to walk a path step by step, to live a life that is worthy of something higher, lighter, more fulfilling, and maybe even everlasting.
17. Once you’ve lived a little you will find that whatever you send out into the world comes back to you in one way or another. It may be today, tomorrow, or years from now, but it happens; usually when you least expect it, usually in a form that’s pretty different from the original. Those coincidental moments that change your life seem random at the time but I don’t think they are. At least that’s how it’s worked out in my life. And I know I’m not the only one.
18. Oh Lestat, you deserved everything that’s ever happened to you. You better not die. You might actually go to hell.
19. I must have killed a lot of cows in a past life for Karma to hate me this much.
20. A great human revolution in just a single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a nation and, further, can even enable a change in the destiny of all humankind.
21. Dear Karma, I really hate you right now, you made your point.
22. Violence does, in truth, recoil upon the violent, and the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another.
23. The institutions of human society treat us as parts of a machine. They assign us ranks and place considerable pressure upon us to fulfill defined roles. We need something to help us restore our lost and distorted humanity. Each of us has feelings that have been suppressed and have built up inside. There is a voiceless cry resting in the depths of our souls, waiting for expression. Art gives the soul’s feelings voice and form.
24. I’m not a believer in predetermined fates, being rewarded for one’s efforts. I’m not a believer in karma. The reason why I try to be a good person is because I think it’s the right thing to do. If I commit fewer bad acts there will be fewer bad acts, maybe other people will join in committing fewer bad acts, and in time there will be fewer and fewer of them.
25. It is your karma to fight evil. It doesn’t matter if the people that evil is being committed against don’t fight back. It doesn’t matter if the entire world chooses to look the other way. Always remember this. You don’t live with the consequences of other people’s karma. You live with the consequences of your own
26. It’s already bad. I’m honestly not sure how much worse it’s going to get.” Notice that I didn’t say couldn’t get worse. It can always get worse. I know this. And thus I refuse to tempt fate. Superstitious – probably. But magic exists. So does karma, and karma can be a bitch.
27. But, mark my words; someday she’ll get what’s coming to her. Karma’s a bigger bitch than she is
28. Strange things conspire when one tries to cheat fate
29. This is your karma. You do not understand now, but you will understand later. The source of pain is within your own larger expression of being.
30. How aware are we of our own inner life, our spirituality-something so intangible yet so priceless? How much effort do we make to perceive that which is not obvious, which can neither be seen nor heard? I believe the exploration and enrichment of the human spirit is what determines our very humanity. Such enrichment provides an inner compass that can lead civilizations to greatness.
31. Leave behind the passive dreaming of a rose-tinted future. The energy of happiness exists in living today with roots sunk firmly in reality’s soil.
32. Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak.
33. Manipulation, fueled with good intent, can be a blessing. But when used wickedly, it is the beginning of a magician’s karmic calamity.
34. Sooner or later in life, we will all take our own turn being in the position we once had someone else in.
35. Dangerous consequences will follow when politicians and rulers forget moral principles. Whether we believe in God or karma, ethics is the foundation of every religion.
36. Karma is a tricky thing. To serve Karma, one must repay good Karma to others. To serve Karma well, one must sometimes deliver bad Karma where it is due.
37. You cannot control the results, only your actions.
38. Treat other people’s home as you want them to respect yours because what goes around comes around.
39. When you plant a seed of love, it is you that blossoms.
40. Love your neighbor, even the ones who do not show you the same courtesy. You can’t expect to receive love if you’re selective and not really willing to give it. What you put into the world, you will indeed get back, even if it’s not from the person you’re expecting it to be.
41. Situations seem to happen to people, but in reality, they unfold from deeper karmic causes. The universe unfolds to itself, bringing to bear any cause that needs to be included. Don’t take this process personally. The working out of cause and effect is eternal. You are part of this rising and falling that never ends, and only by riding the wave can you ensure that the waves don’t drown you. The ego takes everything personally, leaving no room for higher guidance or purpose. If you can, realize that a cosmic plan is unfolding and appreciate the incredibly woven tapestry for what it is, a design of unparalleled marvel.
42. Some day people will ask me what is the key to my success…and I will simply say, “good Karma.
43. I’m not a philosopher, Harry,” [Michael] said. “But here’s something for you to think about, at least. What goes around comes around. And sometimes you get what’s coming around.” He paused for a moment, frowning faintly, pursing his lips. “And sometimes you are what’s coming around.
44. If karma doesn’t catch up, God will surely pick up the slack.
45. To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many endings, and many many beginnings—all in the same relationship.
46. I want revenge, but I don’t want to screw up my karma.
47. To experience what isn’t, love what is.
48. You made your own bed, and now curse others for putting you there.
49. This misfortune you find is of your own manufacture.
Keep hold of what you have, it will harm no other,
for hatred comes home to the hand that chose it.
50. Culture is an elevated expression of the inner voice which the different peoples of the Earth have heard in the depths of their being, a voice which conveys the vibrant compassion and wisdom of the cosmic life. For different cultures to engage in interaction is to catalyze each other’s souls and foster mutual understanding.
51. Can you play the piano like Beethoven? Or sing like Carly Simon? Can you take fie pages’ worth of quotes and turn them into a usable story ten minutes before deadline? I don’t think so, unless you have more hidden talents I don’t know about. We all have our special sills. They don’t make us better or worse than each other. Just different
52. The sad thing is, I was discovering that you almost have to make a joke of being good to strangers. Up and down the country, these people doing their good deeds were doubtless being seen as slightly eccentric, when in reality and in an ideal world they should be deemed the most normal people of all.
53. As long as karma exists, the world changes. There will always be karma to be taken care of
54. There are two missions we are obligated to carry out during our life journey. The first, is to seek Truth throughout our lifetime. The second, is simply to be good. Engrave it in your mind that life is just one big board game where you have to make it from start to finish by being good. That is all you have to do. The hardest part, is dealing with all the obstacles that prevent smooth sailing. The trick is, to always strive to be the right person in all situations – regardless of personal cost to you. Your aim is to make sure the right book on your shoulder weighs more that the bad book on the left. The scales are real. Regardless of your chosen faith, there is a measurement system to be found in all of the world’s religions. After all, does it make sense for all souls, good or bad, to end up in the same place? Of course not. To really secure the very best setting in the afterlife, the vibrations of your good deeds must surpass your death.
55. Birth is painful and delightful. Death is painful and delightful. Everything that ends is also the beginning of something else. Pain is not a punishment; pleasure is not a reward.
56. Eventually you are answerable to yourself for your deeds. Be good and do good!
57. But this was what happened when you didn’t want to visit and confront the past: the past starts visiting and confronting you.
58. If your actions were to boomerang back on you instantly, would you still act the same? Doing to others an act you’d rather not have done to you reveals a powerful internal conflict.
59. You have to appreciate where you have come from to know who you are in the present and whom you would like to be in the future.
60. You are the ruler of my heart. There is no measure greater than this.
