The important thing to realize is that the energy we give to these flowers is our karmic energy.
By living with mindfulness we can observe this karmic mind which is becoming conditioned in our minds and begin to change how we react in our daily lives.
Mindfulness gives us the ability to choose which flowers we water and which we don’t. Without mindfulness, we’re simply reactive to conditioned thoughts patterns.
So in order to use karma as a force for our own personal and spiritual development, a force for great good, you need only shine the light of mindfulness on your life in order to identify your karmic energy and work to heal any karmic energy holding you back.
By living with this knowledge of karma, we can let go of mental baggage and worries that we think are assigned to us and instead take control our life.
Sure there are going to be outside factors that affect your life. But if you deepen your understanding of what true peace looks like, you’ll have the ability to experience life fully no matter what’s going on around you.
Karma shows that we have the freedom to decide what happens to us. It’s our intentional actions and thoughts that govern our lives.
