Empowering Karma

“Having some intuitive sense of karma—an understanding that our happiness and unhappiness depend on our actions, and that therefore we are ultimately responsible for our fate—shifts our life into a place of empowerment…When we see suffering, conflict, danger, pain, or a problem arise in our life, we do not merely try to eliminate it. Rather, we courageously change the conditions that provide the ground for its arising and that support or maintain its existence…If we change the conditions, we change the problem.”

~ Sharon Salzberg, Lovingkindness: the revolutionary art of happiness
