The Daily Prompt is asking us the following today: Reincarnation: do you believe in it? They have also headed the post as “Karma Chameleon.”
“The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.” Buddha quote
My understanding of karma is that we are living in a state of existence and have previously lived in states of exsitence. That the things happening to us in our present existence is due to our behaviour in our previous existence. Having been taught Christianity growing up I realise that I have certain ideas that have stuck, but in my quest for the understanding of our existence I generally try to have an open mind to most beliefs and religions until such time, if ever, I have reached some sort of conclusion or understanding within myself about life, only then would I be able to state what I believe.
Until then though, I will choose to live remembering the present karma, in the sense that in any given circumstance I will choose to choose good over bad…and in that way create good karma to the best of my ability.
Hope this post makes sense.
