12 OF KARMA’S LAWS THAT CAN CHANGE YOUR
1. The Great Law: “As you sow, so shall you reap.”
The simple explanation of the Great Law is: our thought and actions have
consequences – good or bad. If we desire peace, love, harmony, prosperity, etc.
we must be willing to act accordingly.
This is also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect.” Also, energy (thought,
action) that we put into the world has a consequence, immediate or not.
2. The Law of Creation: “What we desire comes through participation.”
The life we see around us was created by a person’s intentions. As we are one
with the Universe, our intentions determine the evolution of creation. Since what
we surround ourselves with becomes part of us, it’s our responsibility to ensure
these surroundings are conducive to our desires.
3. The Law of Humility: “Refusal to accept what is will still be what is.”
Acceptance is a near-universal virtue in many belief systems. Simply put, we
must first accept the present circumstances in order to change them.
In focusing on the negative instead of making changes to address the negative,
we’re committing to a zero-sum result.
4. The Law of Growth: “Our own growth is above any circumstance.”
The only thing we have control over is ourselves. The subsequent action (or
inaction) of motive will yield either positive or negative circumstances in our lives.
True change only occurs if we make the commitment to change what is in our
5. The Law of Responsibility: “Our lives are of our own doing, nothing
When there is turbulence in one’s own life, there is often turbulence internally. If
we’re to change our life, we must change our frame of mind and surroundings.
6. The Law of Connection: “Everything in the Universe is connected,
both large and small.”
Our past, present and future are all connected. As such, we must put in the work
to change these connections if we desire something different.
No step – first, intermediate or last – is more important in the accomplishment of
a task. All are required.
7. The Law of Focus: “One cannot direct attention beyond a single
Relating to our spiritual growth, we cannot have negative thoughts or actions and
expect to grow spiritually. We must direct full attention to achieve any desired
8. The Law of Hospitality and Giving: “Demonstrating our selflessness
shows true intentions.”
Put simply: what we claim to believe must manifest into our actions. Selflessness
is a virtue only if we’re accommodating something other than ourselves.
Without a selfless nature, true spiritual growth is nearly impossible.
9. The Law of Change: “History repeats itself unless changed.”
Conscious commitment to change is the only method of influencing the past.
History will continue along an unconstructive path until positive energies direct it
10.The Law of Here and Now: “The Present is all we have.”
Looking back regretfully and forward pointlessly robs oneself of a present
opportunity. Old thoughts and patterns of behavior negate the present chance to
11.The Law of Patience and Reward: “Nothing of value is created
without a patient mindset.”
Toiling away cannot be circumvented through wishful thinking. Our rewards are
claimed only through patience and persistence, nothing else.
Rewards are not the end-result. True, lasting joy comes from the knowledge of
doing what’s necessary in the rightful anticipation of a reward that is well-earned.
12.The Law of Significance and Inspiration: “The best reward is one that
contributes to the Whole.”
The end result is of little value if it leaves little or nothing behind.
