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”
