Karma Adds Up
I believe that karma never goes away. It is like the shackles and chains that bound you to your burden until you cleanse your soul of bad karma that you gathered from past lives. Karma is the shadow that you can never toss away because it is what defines each and every human being. You can try to ignore it and not attempt amends. However, what would you do if you were unable to find a job, unable to find a true friend, unable to survive in society? All these aspects have to do with karma. It's not a matter of luck or blessing but rather on how you lived your past life. If you were a good moral, good deed person, who always strived to help others and be selfless.
It may sound hard but anything is possible if you put your head to it. I believe that. Karma in my opinion is a never ending cycle of lives. You can think of it as a report card from elementary school. You have to be on your best behavior and swallow your negative feelings like the most bitter medicine you ever had. Chase away your negative thoughts and embrace your positive side in everything. It's not possible for many but we have to try, don't we?
