When we blame someone for a problem, we try to separate ourselves from our karma. Can anyone really separate a phenomenon into parts? One part is us, and the other part is outside of us? A phenomenon is energy, and energy cannot be divided. The real problem has its source in your mind The things you see are manifestations from your mind. When you hear something, it is because your mind has opened a channel that allows you to hear it. No matter what you see or hear, it never outside your karma. Your karma is the collective whole of all your mind’s creations. Karma is simultaneously the cause and effect of our human circumstance. We always have karma, and we always will. However, we can choose the karma we create, just as we can choose calmness over anger. You cannot escape karma,  but you can encourage good karma and the wonderful effects of a positive reality.
