The Third Jesus by Deepak Chopra – The Gospel of Enlightenment – Karma: Reaping and Sowing

One of the Buddhist teachings that as an old Sacred Heart Convent Girl it took me a while to assimilate is Karma, and Dr Chopra has this to say:

Karma – Reaping and Sowing

“The primary tenet of Karma is that every action works like a seed that sprouts and brings fruit in the form of a result. Jesus isn’t identified with such an Eastern concept, yet he famously said, “As you sow, so shall you reap”.

Christ didn’t use the word Karma, but throughout the Gospels  we are told that every action has a consequence, either here or in Heaven.

Christ’s version of Karma

  • “Every action leads to a result
  • Good actions have good results, bad actions bad results
  • Every action is seen and weighed. Nothing can be hidden or kept secret
  • If your actions are good, you will grow spiritually
  • As you grow, your thoughts and wishes will manifest in the material world. Karma operates faster and more consciously”
