What is Karma?

I guess it is typical to think  of it like this….

If you do something wrong or bad, look out because you will receive an unpleasant surprise in due time.

However, I have learned that Karma really means action. To act on our truth. What actions do you take to get you to where you want to go in life? It’s a choice, we all have them and we all eventually choose our path or direction which then we”ll acknowledge that are choices have consequences. GOOD or BAD.

So I was thinking about Karma in a new way because I, like most people, tend to think of Karma as if somethings going to eventually bite me in the ass from something I’ve done or said that I’m not proud of. Come on, you know you have felt this way at some time in your life.We all experience pain and regret and becoming self aware can help with the choices we make. I believe this to be true in many ways. It’s at least something to be mindful of when referring to “karma”.

If someone gives me the finger for some ungodly reason that I’m unaware of, my “karma” is determined by my response. If I respond in defense, all I’m doing is reacting to their bull crap. Nothing good could come from an angry response.  Why mess with your inner peace? Instead choose compassion. You really never know what someones dealing with internally. We all have bad days but sending out a little compassion and understanding can go a long way. It may even change someones life, or yours!

“How people treat you is their karma: how you react is yours” Wayne W. Dyer

“When you see a good person, think of becoming like her/him. When you see someone not so good, reflect on  your own weak points” Confucius

“On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So which is it? Let the light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both” Yehuda Berg

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize You.

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
