People pay for what they do, and still more, for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it simply: by the lives they lead.
There is a destiny that makes us brothers: none goes his way alone,
All that we send into the lives of others comes back into our own.
Like gravity, karma is so basic we often don’t even notice it.
The cool thing about free will is that even if one has a huge bag of karma there is still a lot of free will for all those souls coming into the world.
My actions are my only true belongings. I cannot escape the consequences of my actions. My actions are the ground upon which I stand.
Thich Nhat Hanh
