Why Do Your Planned Acts?
Most of us have heard stories on the news about someone who has done some random act of kindness that really tugged at our collective heartstrings. And for the vast majority of us sitting at home or at work in our chairs and sofas, the feelings registered and were gone with the introduction of the next commercial or story.
And there’s the rub. Most of us would like to do more to help others, but until now we didn’t have the system in place to make it doable and, lacking the impetus, we remained firmly intrenched on our backsides. (No offense intended.)
Planned Acts of Kindness automatically provides the “What you can do” on a daily basis to help others. Everyday it’s right there in front of you. All you have to do is take action. And the more you do, the more you’ll want to do because of how it helps others and helps yourself at the same time.
The Karma Club automatically provides you with the “How” to document and record your actions, and rewards you based on your karma and your achievements.
As for the “Why” of it? Well, in additional to the Karma Club loot you can score, there are many compelling reasons “why” we need to change to a more proactive lifestyle based on kindness.
One reason is that helping others is just the right thing for us to do as a species. For too long we have been divided by a growing lack of civility toward others that don’t share our opinions. We have the power of choice and it’s time we actively worked at helping people in need regardless of skin color, nationality, religion, gender, age, education or income.
Another reason that comprises the big three is that the world is in crisis. In 10 to 20 years problems like climate change, pollution, war, terrorism and overpopulation could reach tipping points and irrevocably change the world for the worse for billions of people. We cannot rely on governments, companies or religions to act in the collective interests of the planet … we have to take matters into our own hands and force these same institutions to make the necessary changes for the continued well-being of kids, people and the planet. Imagine tens of millions of people mobilizing into a powerful unified voice to combat government or company pollution … with numbers plus action we have the strength and ability to change problems into solutions.
The third reason is that helping others on a sustained basis grants you, the do-gooder, with Karmic Rewards. People with active social connections to family, to friends, to community are happier, physically and mentally healthier, and they live longer than people who are less well connected. Kind of like their own Custom Benefits Plan. The more you invest, the greater your rewards can be in these essential areas.
All Things Karma
What is Karma?
The word “Karma” literally means “deed” or “act” and more broadly names the universal principle of cause and effect, action and reaction, which Hindus and Buddhists believe govern all consciousness.
In simple terms, Karma is the law of causality where good deeds, words and thoughts lead to beneficial outcomes for a person, while bad deeds, words and thoughts lead to harmful outcomes. Good actions and intentions reap good rewards. Bad actions and intentions result in suffering and pain.
In essence, Karma acts to shape an ethical worldview that works to govern individuals and the moral order of society and the universe.
Karma is not fate: Our actions are our own to choose, and we create our own destinies. We have the freedom to act, but not always to escape the consequences of our actions.
And, despite the apparent lack of justice in the world, a life of love and compassionate action is never wasted because the mysteries of karma and good fortune are not always readily discernible.
What we do (and don’t do) today, tomorrow, and in the foreseeable future, is going to determine the fate of life on this planet.
So, it’s about time that we unite together — as both individuals and members of the Human Race — to work on the health of ourselves, our families, our communities and our planet …
