Moving Karma

When you Google the term karma, you get this definition:

kar·ma    ()

  1. Hinduism & Buddhism. The total effect of a person's actions and conduct during the successive phases of the person's existence, regarded as determining the person's

  2. Fate; destiny.

  3. Informal. A distinctive aura, atmosphere, or feeling: There's bad karma around the house today.

[Sanskrit, deed, action that has consequences, karma. See kwer- in Indo-European Roots.]

One site describes karma this way:
In Buddhist teaching, the law of karma, says only this: `for every event that occurs, there will follow another event whose existence was caused by the first, and this second event will be pleasant or unpleasant according as its cause was skillful or unskillful.'

Ok. But to really rack up the karma points, you come spend a couple of hours on a Sunday lugging someone's heavy boxes of books and other stuff and take it all to a storage unit.

Thanks, Lewis and Chris!!
