Can your thoughts change your karma ?
I read book a book called “The Secret”. In that book the author says that whatever is your dominant thought and whatever you visualize you attract that in your life. So does it mean your thoughts can change your Karma?
We learn this in the Happiness program/ Part 1 course/ Art of Living basic course. Gurudev calls it the ‘Law of attraction’. Whatever you think, so shall you be. If your thoughts are geared to “Oh, I don’t have this, I don’t have that”. Your focus is on “lack” in life, you will definitely attract lack. You will attract dearth in life. But if you focus on abundance and are grateful for the few things that you have, you will attract more “abundance and gratitude in life”! As you sow, so shall you reap!
So does that mean that if I think about money, money, money, all the time, then I will become very rich in this lifetime or in the next lifetime? NO! There is no guarantee. You might become a watchman of a bank or an insect trapped inside a safe deposit box room 🙂
Understand one thing very clearly, your thoughts that have such a strong raaga, only create more agami karma! So you are actually creating karma!
How muchever you think of the 5 sanchita karmas that are set in stone as described in the karma video, you cannot change them. The Law of attraction fails there. Besides these 5, your raagas and dveshas create more and more agami karma. This enables you to be trapped in the cycle of birth and death lifetime after lifetime after lifetime!
