I believe every single human on earth has heard about karma. Have you ever asked yourself what karma really means? Some people even think it’s almost fate. The truth is, most us have it wrong. And this misunderstanding doesn’t help any of us. When you truly understand what Karma means, it can be used as a powerful tool for personal development. Karma has nothing to do with “fate”. If you do something negative, it doesn’t mean that something negative has to happen to you to “even it out”. Karma is actually based on your actions and thoughts in every single moment. The best way to think of karma is an energy that you’re creating every moment. Every intentional action or thought generates this energy. It’s enough for the meaning of it, now let’s jump to the interesting part, we created this list of karma quotes just for you.
