We usually think of Karma in terms of “good” and “bad.” And yet these cliches don’t do much to serve up a deeper understanding of Karma’s spiritual implications. In this talk, Michael touches on several topics that center around the human tendency to act and behave from a profound sense of separation. Action from this orientation, in Buddhist terms, generates Karma. With this in mind, Karma that we might consider good, would be activity that is spontaneously and deeply rooted in generosity. On the other hand, Karma that we might consider to be bad would be the kind of activity that springs from the self-serving drives of the ego.
So how might we straighten out the tangles offered by a lifetime of egoic activity? This is the very question that Michael begins to address in this talk.
