It is amazing the plethora of self help gurus who peddle their wares throughout the planet. Most famously, of late, is the Australian Rhonda Byrne who developed The Secret. Many of these people have taken the karmic philosophy and spiked it for Western consumption. The West, having been failed by a largely corrupt church and the rise of rationalism, has sought desperately to reconnect with it spiritual side.
It is sad that so many folks simply refuse to accept that acts of kindness, personal responsibility and individual humility are more than adequate pathways to personal spirituality. I have been on my own quest of late. It's not been pleasant, either.
And yet, there comes a moment when a crystallizing vision arises to focus all your thoughts, hopes and fears.
And it is this.
You are responsible for your own actions.
You will bear the consequences of those actions.
There is a definable, demonstrable good and evil in the world.
So let it be.
