Karmic Effect – The Endless Knot

In Buddhist practice, the ‘Eternal Knot’ or “Endless Knot” is a symbol of promise representing the unity between infinite wisdom and compassion- without beginning or end. It is a geometric diagram of right angles which symbolizes the nature of reality where everything is interconnected- a flowing process of interrelated cause & effect- and where everything exists as part of a web of karmic (Connective) action (condition) & consequence.

Our intent, decisions, and the actions we take yield results (consequences) that are all part of an inseparable connective process that manifests in who we are… and who we are becoming. We are all a ‘sum’ of our interdependent actions. Our dispositions to how we respond to our own experiences have long been conditioned. The test of our character is in the skillful application of mindfulness- a present-moment awareness that is relaxed, curious, open, receptive, and kind. It is in the ‘space’ and ‘light’ of mindfulness that we can begin to see more clearly how we have conditioned and shaped our nature of response… and how this streaming ‘connective effect’ of historical response patterns has fused together our character.

With this insight, we may come to realize that our future doesn’t have to remain fixed as a product of our past. We have the FREEDOM and the power of ‘NOW’ to reshape our nature of response and our character by sustaining awareness for how we condition… intent, disposition, and action… TODAY.

Namaste!
