Yoga Sutra 2.14: The Law of Karma

Sutras 2.12 - 2.14 have been all about karma.

Karma in Sanskrit means action. It can either be good or bad. Alll actions we take have karma.

Every action we take creates a ripple effect in the lives of all beings.

It also creates a ripple effect within us.

We each have Samskaras, which are impressions stored consciously and unconsciously within us.

These influence our thoughts, intentions and actions.

The resulting experiences will be either pleasant or unpleasant, planting new seeds within us and perpetuating this ongoing cycle that will determine how our lives progress.

We can look back on our lives and see how our choices shaped our destiny. This can encourage us to be more mindful of the seeds we are planting each day.

Why am I making this choice? Is it to fuel my ego? Is it to fill some unmet need within me?

Is the lens of my perception shaping how I experience the world? How I experience life? Am I walking through the world looking at it through the lens of hate, drama, gossip, and negativity? Or am I looking at it through the lens of love?

Sutra 2.14. Every action creates our karma.

This is yoga.
