I made this video in response to a video a friend made on the concept of suffering. He said very wisely, “They don’t suffer because of what they have done in a past life; they suffer because of what we fail to do now”.
Now, I certainly do believe in past lives and I do believe in karma. But I’ve found that so many people have an incorrect view of what it really is. You may be surprised to learn that suffering is a two-way street. It’s as much about the people around the suffer as it is about the one suffering.
Recently I was inspired by a friend of mine to make a video addressing the issue of karma. I think a lot of people have perhaps been given the wrong impression of exactly what karma is and look upon it as a kind of cosmological penal code, doling out justice from one life to the next. But I don’t believe that’s strictly what it is. Here’s why I think karma is a far more complicated, all-encompassing principle.
