KARMA- AUGUST 1999  


KARMA Karma Activism caeser pink imperial orgy


Karma is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. With every action, with every movement, it is there. It is one of the tools that bring creation out of nothingness.

Before we pile confusion upon confusion, I should state that I believe most Americans have it wrong about karma. Most westerners tend to think of karma as a Karma equivalent to divine retribution. They see it as something that rewards good and punishes evil in a manner similar to the Christian judgment. In the way that African slaves took Catholic saints and understood them within the concepts of their own religious beliefs to create Santeria, so do Westerners with Eastern religions.

If we can manage to somehow get Judeo-Christian thinking out of our heads, we find that karma is something much more powerful, dangerous, and complex. Karma is an amoral force of nature that acts on all things at all times. Karma is a force of balance that brings a counteraction to each action. As when one throws a stone into a pond and the ripples move out until they hit the bank, then turn back against their original source. Or like a rubber band that when pulled in one direction snaps back into the other direction while seeking stasis.

But even these do not do justice to the power of karma. Karma is more energetic. Its effect is cumulative. It grows and expands. A small action can ricochet throughout time, build and grow in size, and boomerang back at you years after the fact. Karma cannot be escaped. It exists within the very fabric of nature. A dynamic as sure as gravity.

Karma acts with a brilliant simplicity that applies itself equally to all situations. It is not concerned with the fine details of life that effect our decisions. An action demands a reaction. Balance must be maintained. If we stir the fabric of nature, the effects will be set into motion.

Perhaps the hardest part of karma for westerners to accept is that it is amoral. It acts upon the innocent as well as the guilty. All actions, whether positive or negative, expand and grow. Like a pinball lighting up bumpers, each action triggers more like actions and more waves are set into motion, causing the positive or negative force to grow and expand further.

If one harms another, the natural human response to the harm done, be it anger, hate, or self-pity, usually brings more bad karma to the one harmed as well as the evildoer. It is these complexities and seeming unfairness that makes karma so hard to grasp, and sets it apart from Christian ideas of simple judgment for good and evil deeds.

In some ways, karma can be seen as life itself. Passion, which brings life into being, is the key to karma. To try to live in a way that avoids karma is seen by many thinkers to be anti-life. It is very hard to live life at all, or to take any action, without building karma.

And we must consider that karma exists, not only for individuals, but also for communities and nations. When we look at the karma of America, or New York City, any wise person will surely feel fear in their hearts.

We often think of karma in terms of morality. Often people see no difference between karma, evil, and sin. Although karma deals with positive and negative actions and therefore often parallels good and evil, it is not exactly the same thing.

Some define 'sin' as being 'not good enough for God.' The implication being that it is more demanding than simple morality based on good and evil, that there is a higher standard being asked for. And so it is with karma, but not in the same manner as with sin, which still strives towards a pure good to the exclusion of all evil.

Karma seeks both balance and stasis, but a balance that is grounded without extremes. Each passion, each thought, excites the balance and sets the wheel of karma into motion.

A few years ago, I recorded an extended musical work titled 'A Beginner's Mind On Love & Sin.' I was interested in exploring the mystery in Eastern spirituality that love itself is considered a 'sin' in that it ignites passion and binds us to material existence.

A monk that spends his life in devotion to God will often, as he reaches the moment of enlightenment, find that his love of God is standing in his way. Or that after sacrificing his life to worldly detachment, find that his dedication to the goal of detachment is an attachment that blocks his way. It is a cruel irony. And only final failure and despair can unblock the way.

So with karma, to love - 'love' in the sense of desire, passion, and possession of that loved - is an action that excites karmic effect. Given this, to live is to build karma, and it is very hard to find a moral compass that avoids negative karma. Karma is the most demanding of moral codes. And when you have experienced its wrath, you learn to respect its power. It demands more than purity. It demands more than good. It demands a sacrifice of self that most of us cannot even imagine, and few can ever achieve.
