(Prologue: I’ve got first-hand experience that a real understanding of the laws of karma can substantially change our lives for the better. I created this weblog to share information and personal experience with others. May it be beneficial!)
The karmic system, comprised of causes, conditions, circumstances and effects, is, for me, the most definitive proof of the teaching that we are fooled by our own projections.
In other words, we create our own reality. And from that flows what we call our karma.
By concretizing our thoughts, emotions, values, and beliefs. We make them solid — and call it reality!
And when something happens — pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral — to us in our lives, we again call it reality! “That’s life,” we’ll say.
But it is just our own projections, our own storyline, coming back to us. These projections are in fact the karma produced by our creating, and then believing in, those projections.
In short, the whole karmic system of causes, conditions, circumstances and effects is manufactured.
The way to liberate ourselves from the “reality” we have created for ourselves? Meditation practice. Only this practice allows us to work with our own minds to let go of the fixation on our thoughts, emotions, values and beliefs and experience freshness.
