      How Some Might (Mis)Understand Karma

      The karmic is not fatalistic as the karmic is dynamic.

      Pitfalls of Wrong Understanding of Karma

      When something bad happens to you, 
         you might wallow in misery, resigned that it's your inescapable bad Karma.

      When something bad happens to others, 
         you might sigh that it's just their bad Karma, and do nothing to help.
      When something good happens to you, 
         you might become complacent, thinking your good Karma will last.
      When something good happens to others, 
         you might become jealous that they have good Karma.

      Benefits of Right Understanding of Karma

      When something bad happens to you, 
         you have an open attitude to make the best of it, and better your Karma.
      When something bad happens to others, 
         you help because they might have the good karma to be helped by you.
      When something good happens to you,
         you cherish it because it might not last, and remind yourself to do more good.
      When something good happens to others,
         you rejoice in their merits and encourage them to do more good.
       - Shen Shi'an

      As Karma is Anicca and Anatta, not realising this is Dukkha. - stonepeace
