As the blazing fire reduces wood to ashes, similarly, the fire of Self-knowledge reduces Karma to ashes.
~ Bhagavad Gita
Throughout the History of Mankind, many different cultures and belief systems talk about the need to be responsible for our actions. The Kabbalists teach that we are responsible for every event that happens in our lives.
We attract all the events in our lives, through the choices we make daily. Our thoughts and actions are the source for the entire cycle of cause and effect.
The explanation for all the challenging events we face resides in the way we Perceive and the way we treat other Beings in our lives. To treat others differently instead of as equals, not recognizing our state of Oneness and the unity behind all, can be the cause of many of the spiritual illnesses.
This life is likened to a field in which our Karma is the seed.
We harvest what we sow.
No less, no more.
