I am a baptized Lutheran, specifically of the ELCA variety, and I will proudly say that I am a Christian. I will also proudly say that I have always been more of a spiritual person than a religious person. My father’s side of the family is Roman Catholic and my mother’s side of the family is Buddhist. My maternal grandmother, in fact, has always told me that Buddhism is more of a life philosophy than a true religion which I have truly taken to heart. Karma is a tenant of Buddhism, but do you believe in Karma? For that matter, what does Karma mean to you?
Karma, according to Dictionary.com, means: “thecosmicprincipleaccordingtowhicheachpersonisrewardedorpunishedinoneincarnationaccordingtothatperson’sdeedsinthepreviousincarnation.”
So does that mean you have to be religious to believe in Karma?
I think that Karma extends beyond religion and instead is the result of the energy that you are sending out in the universe by your actions. That energy, whether positive or negative, is going to come back to you eventually.
What goes around, comes around. And don’t forget the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Which, when you think about it, aren’t they the same thing? That’s Karma.
Karma is not tied to any one specific religion. Karma is about being conscience of your fellow human beings. It’s about common sense and doing the right thing.
For me, Karma means being mindful of my actions, responsibility for myself, thoughtful of my words, and present in my deeds.
Did you know that more women believe in Karma than men?
If you do believe in Karma, then I would encourage you to check out Amazing Karma.

This post is part of the New American Dream Blog Tour which I am delighted to be a part of along with hundreds of inspiring bloggers. To learn more and join us, Click Here Growing up I had apple pie in the sky kind of dreams- a mansion, with a wildly successful career, family, and all of my dream cars. A big, fancy American dream. Now, as an adult, I still have dreams of the future- just a little more realistic and down to earth. A new American dream. As Kyle has said: “I’d rather live paycheck to paycheck and not be in debt, than live a life of dreams and owe the world,”. But why can’t both be possible? To me, being successful means…
