THE MEANING OF KARMA




"People get into a heavy-duty sin and guilt trip,
 feeling that if things are wrong, 
that means that they did something bad 
and they are being punished. 
That's not the idea at all. 
The idea of karma is that you continually get 
the teachings that you need to open your heart. 
To the degree that you didn't understand in the past 
how to stop protecting your soft spot, 
how to stop armoring your heart, 
you're given the gift of teachings in the form of life, 
to give you everything you need to open further. " 


-Pema Chodron
