——–Homage to Shakyamuni the Great Sage——-
When we take Refuge in the Buddha, we take a pledge to start the incredible Journey of realizing the cause of all sufferings does not arise from others but from ourselves. Hence when we accept the doctrine of karma, we stop blaming others and start taking responsibility for our own actions. Karma is not fatalistic in that whatever you are in life, you are stuck. In fact, it is the opposite. Whatever you are can be changed, made better, improved and grow. Karma is not a doctrine to lock you in and increase fatalistic thinking. In fact it is very liberating when you actually think about it deeply. Liberating because nothing is permanent and everything can be improved. You can do it. If you follow the path of Dharma, you will improve everything in your life. No reason to be depressed, sad or feel stuck. Karma liberates you by telling you the truth. The truth is that you are the author of all that comes your way. So stop complaining. Get yourself going and plan what you want to achieve.
