Can you see your karma? Whenever you speak from your personal pain about another, whenever you distort the facts which causes damage to another, whether you do it intentionally or unintentionally, you are accumulating karma. This karma is a dark shadow bearing down upon you for all eternity. Nobody can rid you of it, not even God, only you, you alone can make amends. Your karma is the circumstances of your life in the immediacy of now, wherever you are, whatever you're doing, whatever seems to be happening to you, it is happening as the result of your karma. The main purpose of your particular life on this earth, (you alone making it particular), is the part you must play as the whole of humanity in transcending this karma. When you truly see this, when you see through and beyond the pettiness of self, the understanding is clear. Being diligently attentive, you will naturally not add to it through the pain and vanity of self distorting what is into something what's not.
