repercussions played from karma;
Self-impact on destiny,
as we're acting out our dharma.
When we act, we set in motion,
the force of our vibration;
It echoes back upon ourselves,
as a subtle cosmic sensation.
Fate may take us in the end,
and our fallible will may fail;
Error may stump our intellect,
or our aching heart may ail.
Yet, as the thunder follows lightening,
and the cart burdens down the ox;
Reaction follows action,
as a wave of karmic shock.
Each role we play, willed or not,
a good or bad done deed;
Bears its fruit from its forbears,
planted as a karmic seed.
Just as a tree sets free its fruits,
expecting nothing in return;
A detached attitude sets karma free,
to let our true identity be learned.
And so as we sow, so we must reap,
and as we lie in our own made bed;
Remember the Law of Karma,
the cause of all effected.
