There is a spiritual belief that centers on the principle of cause and effect. Every intent and action has consequences and the power to influence what happens to you in the future. We know it as karma, or the universe’s way of reminding us that divine judgment exists.
In its entirety, the message is simple and clear: Do good and be kind. The principle of karma also lies on how we perceive things around us. By taking in positive energy, we invite good karma into our lives. This highlights the importance of optimism and gratitude.
However, staying positive is easier said than done. Some people are also quick to pass judgment on others, forgetting the need to be compassionate. To attract goodness into your life, here are 40 karma quotes reminding you to be grateful, humble, and kind.
