Karma & Compassion
The Manifestation of Mirrors
The conscious process is reflected in the imagination; the unconscious process is expressed as karma, the generation of actions divorced from thinking and alienated from feeling. - William Irwin Thompson
Karma means action or deed and most of our lives are spent in the doing. As I wandered the department store today I noticed how much there was to distract us from being. My friend wanted to show me the numerous TV stations on her u-verse - no thank you. So much doing and distraction - so little being.
My health kept me from a party today - karma in non-action. Yet it was consideration as well so as not to spread this germ that has temporarily taken over my body. Compassion. Empathy. Sympathy.
There are two sides to every story...and as long as we judge or relate there always will be. The truth lies in the middle. However long it takes, the balance will come around. A static balance does not live - a dynamic one moves and shifts. Growth, evolution and the spiral dance.
Maiden, Mother, and Crone - the evolution through time. Life is change - stagnation is death. And even that is a judgment. Death may be pure awareness without form. Mirrors of spirit within form. To be or not to be - that is the question.
