Every action is a karmic episode because action generates memory, memory generates desire, and desire generates action again. As long as karma is both for you and for those around you then the fruit of karma will be happiness and success.
Experience the Law of Karma in this way:
1. Witness the choices you make in every moment. The best way to prepare for any moment in the future is to be fully conscious in the present.
2. Whenever you make a choice, ask yourself two questions: “What are the consequences of this choice?” and “Will this choice bring happiness to me and to those who are affected by this choice?”
3. Ask your heart for guidance, and be guided by its message of comfort or discomfort. If the choice feels comfortable, go ahead with that choice. If the choice feels uncomfortable, then don’t make that choice.
