A Broader View of Karma

“In a broader view of Karma, rebirth takes on a different meaning. The essence of who we are in the form of atoms was already present at the birth of the universe. The various transformations of the same atoms has continued throughout time, influenced by the entire chain of cause and effect. At the heart of these atoms is the intelligence and energy which is prana, spirit, soul, the spark of life. This soul is also universal in that each part of creation, including each individual human being, is part of one unity. From this perspective, there is karma and rebirth, not as an individual with an individual karmic bank account, but rather the evolution of individual parts of one cosmic soul.”
