What karma truly is

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

― C.G. Jung

Here’s a fun experiment for you to try. Write down every single thing you do during an average day. In half hour increments. But be honest with yourself. Can’t write down: “from 9 AM to 5 PM – work.”

Be brutally honest.

You’re at work, but are you working or just aimlessly wandering the web?

How much time do you spend watching TV? On Social Media? Talking on the phone?

How much time you spend every day reading? Learning a new skill? Working on your dreams? Developing yourself?

Be honest.

This is karma.

We do these things day in and day out and then we expect something we haven’t worked for.

And the truth is that people don’t lie themselves about these things. No. They lack the self-awareness required to realize that they spend an awful lot of time being anything but productive. And even their choice of leisure activities is dumbing them down.

The lesson her is simple: we all have the lives we worked for. We get what we deserve. You can find yourself a lot of excuses, of course. You are free to do that, but it won’t change the life you have. It won’t change a thing, actually.

I am not here to give you advice on how to build a great life, or how to become who you’ve always wanted to be. It’s up to you go figure it all out, to set out on this journey of self-discovery.

What I do ask of you is this: accept responsibility for every single thing you have in your life. Whether you asked for it or not, whether you find it fair or not, it doesn’t matter. Accept responsibility for every single hand life dealt you, and then play it as if it were the hand you’ve always wanted.

That way you can change. You can adapt. You can overcome. You can evolve.

  1. Great point made in this, responsibility for our life is everything I have had to learn in the past couple years. That self-awareness is actually beneficial and freeing, it amazes me though how many will look at others for everything wrong in life and fail to recognize their own responsibility in everything. We have a choice like you said to either make excuses or not. Good post and thoughts.
