Top 10 Karmic Laws to Live By

Cutting through the cosmic clutter

2) Not all tweets are created equal

Remember ... tweeting or updating your Facebook status is pretty much like getting up on a stage in front of 100+ of your friends and acquaintances and saying something into a microphone. Will it be profound? Witty? Interesting? Controversial? Pointless? Who knows. But one thing is for sure -- not all tweets are equal in karmic value or weight. So whatever your intention is, be sure to think twice about your intention and be respectful of your audience. A simple tip: don't over post -- not every thought that comes into your head needs to be shared.

3) Post in the past tense

If you're posting in the present tense, you're not living in the present. You're putting out an intention or message that is only half realized. Live your life, then share it. Here is an example: "I'm talking to the most amazing person in the elevator." Really? How can you be doing that when you're preoccupied tweeting about it? Instead, just enjoy the conversation. Forget there is a phone in your pocket or purse. Give yourself to that conversation. Then 10 minutes later, share the past tense variation "I just had the most amazing conversation with a women in the elevator! I'm more convinced than ever that I'm doing the right thing!" Your friends/followers will see you in a new light. They'll be reminded of why you are such a good friend -- you listen, you respect the process, you embrace life and then you share it in a way that pays it forward.

4) Follow ... don't be a "follower"

In the past it wasn’t always considered a compliment to be called a "follower." In today's world, people love to "follow" people ... on Twitter, on Facebook and more. But are you really following them? Do you really care what they have to say? Remember, if you choose to be a follower of anything, whether it's as trivial as your favorite clothing designer or, more serious, your religious affiliation, you never want to do it just to do it. Unlike and unfollow anything you don't really agree with or care about. It's not helping you or them to have those lines of communications open.

5) If you can't post something nice, don't post anything at all

Yep, it's that same old adage your mom taught you, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." Resist the powerful technological temptation to fire off that snarky or double-sided post. Remember, once it's out there on the Internet, in the universe, you can't take it back. Just because you're behind a keyboard or on the other end of a cell phone doesn’t make it any less powerful. In fact, it's even worse.

If I only comment when I have something positive to say, and refrain from posting my true thoughts,
I will be a hypocrite. Such a practice could build up resentments and lead to passive aggressive behavoirs.The truth is Karma simply reflects the choices we make every moment of our lives. Negativity has it's place. I will seek balance and respect the feelings and opinions of others. As a flawed human being that is the best that I can do.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the producer's of this site.
The Daily Defender thing was a great idea. You fill a very real need.
Thank you.

Karma, like everything else dealing with religion, depends on your journey, Karma can be either good or bad. Wikipedia sums it up nicely: Some traditions (i.e., the Vedanta), believe that a supreme being plays some kind of role, for example, as the dispenser of the 'fruits' of karma or as exercising the option to change one's karma in rare instances. In general, followers of the Buddhism and many followers of Hinduism traditions consider the natural laws of causation sufficient to explain the effects of karma. Another view holds that a Sadguru, acting on a god's behalf, can mitigate or work out some of the karma of the disciple. And according to the Jainism perspective, neither a god nor a guru have any role in a person's karma—the individual is considered to be the sole doer and enjoyer of his karmas and their 'fruits'. Laws of karma are codified in some books.

Karma is only an imaginary "spirit" we send out to get revenge. Some good advice though like paying attention to your actions. If Karma were real there would be no one left who is happy. Have a good day and lets be real about it.
