Do’s and Don’ts for Good Karma

Karma is defined as the good or bad emanations felt to be generated by someone or something. In simple terms, what goes around comes around. If you want something good to happen to you, you need to earn good karma. And like everything else in life, there are things that you can or cannot do to earn good karma.

Do …

Do practice compassion. When someone wrongs you, take a step back and assess the situation with compassion. It will only serve to make you feel great and probably annoy them to no end as well.

Do show affection to others. Knowing that you care about people and people care about you makes you feel good inside and this generates the kind of positive energy that makes you happier.

Do respect yourself as well as others. Recognize and respect your own self-worth and show respect to others. When you do this, you’re more likely to make choices that are good for you and your karma.

Don’t …

Don’t be bogged down by negativity. Positive people are always happier than negative people. Choose to change your perspective on life or on a bad situation to a more positive one, and be pleasantly surprised when better things start happening.

Don’t get angry. Once you start reacting with kindness instead of anger, this can only affect you and the ones you love around you in an extremely positive way.

Don’t overeat. When life deals you a bad hand, slow down, take a deep breath and try to find the silver lining in the situation. Every incident that happens has one, although it may be hard to find.

These simple principles to generate good karma can be put into practice by performing simple daily acts of kindness and compassion. And even if you don’t believe in karma, practicing kindness and compassion as well as the act of positive thinking can only serve to make the world a better place.
