“Do good things and good things will come your way.” That’s how the world goes round, but is this completely true? For example, if you donate five hundred thousand with the inner intent that, ‘I wish I could have given more,’ is it the same as donating the same amount unwillingly or under pressure? If not, then what is the real law of karma?
The truth is, donating money willingly means you bind merit karma, and donating money unwillingly means you bind demerit karma, even if the amounts are equal. Whatever actions you do, or words you speak, they are all a result of your past life’s karma. Just the mere action of doing something good, does not necessarily mean you bind merit karma, your intention is what binds new karma and this is the law of karma.
While experiencing the effect of your past life’s karma you simultaneously bind new karma for your next life, depending on your inner intent. In this way, you become trapped in the cycle of birth and death. You can only become free from karma, after you attain Self Realization.
