A Quote by Plato on plato, karma, and judge

I have this tattooed on my left side! I love the saying and it's a perfect description of Karma, don't judge/discriminate and don't do to someone what you wouldn't want done to you.

Plato (c.427 - 347 BC)

A Quote by Pema Chodron on guilt trip, heart, karma, and soft spot

People get into a heavy-duty sin and guilt trip, feeling that if things are going wrong, that means that they did something bad and they are being punished. That's not the idea at all. The idea of karma is that you continually get the teachings that you need to open your heart. To the degree that you didn't understand in the past how to stop protecting your soft spot, how to stop armoring your heart, you're given this gift of teachings in the form of your life, to give you everything you need to open further.

A Quote by Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on karma, national, individual, environment, and karmic

Shared karmic situations fall into two subcategories: national and individual karma. An example of national karma is that you may be born in a particular country where you always have to relate with 7-Elevens, take-out pizza, and badly made cars. You end up in certain environments or worlds, but you cannot totally blame that on yourself. The whole country is made up that way.

The second subcategory is individual karma within national karma. For example, if the sewage system in your neighborhood is not good, that karma is particularly and personally yours, in a sense, because the pipes keep breaking and costing you a lot of money and effort. Another example is winding up with a bad teacher who gets grumpy because he is poorly paid by the school system. On one hand, that situation is not your fault; but on the other hand, you did end up in that particular school. You have a television network, but you have your own personal TV with which to tune in, and you also choose your own particular station. It’s very simple. Environmental and individual karma complement each other; they feed each other.

A Quote by unknown on authenticity, teachers, dharma, vajrayana, karma, and quality

The extraordinary qualities of great beings who hide their nature escapes ordinary people like us, despite our best efforts in examining them. On the other hand, even ordinary charlatans are expert at deceiving others by behaving like saints.
-Patrul Rinpoche

A Quote by garri garripoli on yuan fen, destiny, fate, and karma

Through Qigong practice we become conscious participants in our destiny.  The Chinese call this yuan fen, a concept that goes beyond destiny, fate, and even karma.  As yuan fen includes these ideas, we can see that there is a continuum of energy that ties the past with the future, placing us in a present that stretches in both directions along the time line.  Qigong helps us understand that nothing is fixed, as the Tao is an everchanging flow of energy.  So our yuan fen is also flowing, constantly in flux, moving with our very thoughts and actions.  As this constant transformative process takes place, our past and future constantly change as well.  This may seem like a strange concept at first as we are taken to believe the past is a fixed reality, completed, and thus unchangeable.  If we understand the Tao, this cannot be an acceptable conclusion.  As we flow with the natural way, all in our existence flexes and reforms.  Qigong practice awakens us to the fact even our past can undergo a drastic metamorphosis.  When this occurs, the lines of causality are redefined.  Past experiences are perceived in a more universal way and with an objective clarity.  The perceived present is concurrently objectified and we are released from the perceived past.  We must simply allow ourselves to become free of the trappings that bind us to form.  As "Dreamtime" describes a maleable reality for the Aboriginal people of Australia, Qi Space assists us in releasing form and becoming the free souls we truly are.

A Quote by Randy Pausch on dreams, karma, and life

It’s not about how to achieve your dreams. It’s about how to lead your life. If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you.
