Re-shaping Karma: the power of intention

This past Sunday, Evelien drew from a talk by Sally Clough Armstrong on Intention.

Sally Clough Armstrong led an IMS talk about Equanimity, Intention and Karma. “We are the heirs of our actions” is a liberating realization that our choices along the way have led us to be right where we are. With wisdom and compassion we can understand how we got here and with intention we can choose how to respond, rather than react, to it.

“All beings are the owners of their own actions/karma.  Even though the past may account for the suffering and inequalities in life, our measure as human beings is not in the hand we’ve been dealt but in the way we play the had we’ve got.”
