Instant Karma just add water!

Instant Karma or Present Moment Karma is the understanding that every present moment has a cause and effect all it’s own.

Instant Karma goes like this:

  1. I have a thought. I call this “Precause.” “Precause” generates it’s own effect.
  2. I take action. Action is a cause. Pure cause generates it’s own effect.
  3. A Reaction occurs, which is another cause. This reaction generates it’s own effect.

Here are 2 examples.

The man who steals:

  1. He wants something he doesn’t believe he can acquire on his own. This thought has a negative effect on him, a belief in scarcity perhaps or his ability.
  2. He steals what he wants and confirms his belief that he is unable to have what he wants without stealing. (an effect)
  3. He lives the rest of his life believing he has to steal to get what he wanted.

The man who believes anything is possible:

  1. He wants something he believes he can achieve. This thought has a positive effect on him. A desire, dream or goal is created.
  2. He manifests what he wants on his own accord by taking action toward his goal and accomplishing it.
  3. He lives the rest of his life knowing any and all things all possible.

Think about it.

Loving thoughts are felt before they create loving moments. Anger builds before released. Rage begets more rage. Judgment binds parties to past ideologies. Control stops growth or change. A need to be right is a need to make someone else wrong. Forgiveness frees you. Hope has a future. Joy has no limit. Peace sees clearly.

You create your world anew in each and every moment.

The effect is instantaneous.

The choice is yours.

A Final Word on “The Last Straw”

I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying about “the last straw.” You know, “the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

“But have you ever wondered how a single straw could ever break a camel’s back?” I have, and I’ve come to the obvious conclusion that it can’t. It’s not the straw but the accumulation of straws that breaks the camel’s back.

And what’s a straw as it applies to YOU? A thought.

Here’s how the “the last straw effect” works.

1) You create your thoughts.
2) You then hold on to them.
4) The accumulation of your negative thoughts produce a negative feeling that builds until you can’t stand it anymore and you break.

BUT MIND YOU, It’s not the last straw that broke (you) the camel’s back, it’s your inability to let go of all your past straws that did.

Here’s how to end the “the last straw effect.”

1) CREATE a new thought in this present moment.
2) Experience this single thought fully.
3) Now, LET GO of this thought.
4) Return to step one.
