Top 10 Karmic Laws to Live By

Cutting through the cosmic clutter

6) Respect the text

Texting has gotten many people into trouble. From simple blunders like predictive type changing the meaning of your messages, to far more serious issues like getting into a dangerous car accident while texting and driving, or getting caught in an racy sexting romance, texting can be a powerful and very damaging tool. Be careful what you text, when you text and who you text. Using mobile devices can be awkward and requires more dexterity and attention. So we suggest you follow the three "Ds" -- Don't text while driving, drinking, or being deceitful.

7) Censor your cell

Just because we humans are so smart that we have invented a way to talk to anyone, anywhere, any time in the world, doesn't mean we need to do it. If you have to take a call, think twice about where you are. Who is around you? What are the acoustics like? Are you really in a position to communicate and be respectful to the person on the other end of the phone ... or others around you?

8) Give it a rest

Create a technology Sabbath! Choose a day of the week where you will not allow any electronic devices or media into your daily routine (outside of mandatory situations, like work). Limit your cell phone to only making necessary calls. Don't take calls, let them go to voice mail, then check the messages at a specified time. Resist being a slave to your phone or voicemail. Avoid TV, radio and internet. At home, pretend you're a pioneer. Break out a book, drag out your dinner by shopping for fresh ingredients and going home and cooking. Music is fine, but listen only to uninterrupted music (like CDs, iPods). Meditate, sketch, journal, draw, exercise ... and unplug your phone and laptops. Try it! You'll love it!

9) Think out of the e-mail inbox

It's easy to forward an e-mail or hit "reply all." It's easy to blast your list of friends and family members with links, poems and trite jokes. But remember, when you put that out there, you're adding noise to your friend's inbox. That e-mail might just compete for visual attention and mindshare with that of a more important or relevant e-mail for your friend. Don't make it hard for your friends to prioritize their day. Think out of the box. Find a different way of sharing your joy. Start a blog. Post your favorite links, videos, jokes and poems there and let your friends catch up on their own time. Or perhaps share your happy links and likes on a social site like Facebook or Twitter.

10) Monitor the aspects of your life

No, we aren't talking about how many Facebook friends you have, or if you're getting enough exercise. We are talking about planetary aspects! After all, we are a horoscope site. We believe the power and perspective of Astrology can be a useful catalyst for navigating and decoding the chaotic world. It's helpful to know about upcoming astrological events such as New Moons, Full Moons, change of signs, Mercury Retrograde and significant planetary aspects that are influencing all of us! You'd be surprised at how awry communications will be when Mercury, the planet of communication, is in retrograde! If you are tuned in to the planets, you will be so much more prepared to tackle the daily influx of cosmic clutter.

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.

I really agree with all of these.. I led myself to be so addicted to technology equipments and forgetting the old ways of catching with friends..I really miss it.
