"I Hope Karma Slaps You in the Face Before I Do" Karma is not a punishment system! Karma is about you, not another person or waiting for another person to "get theirs!" karma is an energy created by willful action, through thoughts, words and deeds. We are all creating karma every minute, and the karma we create affects us every minute. Karma is simply an energy. It's our own intentional thoughts and actions. It's the energy we generate with these actions which affect us now and in the future in a very real sense. It's not a system of reward and punishment and it doesn't doom us based on past mistakes. Karma is unbiased. It's impartial. And it's ours to control.
