Face the truth within you, so you can transform your karma. Every obstacle that manifests in our life is simply a reflection of our inner stagnation. When we use our mind improperly, we create karma that leads to suffering. When we use it wisely, however, its infinite creative power becomes the eternal source of happiness and joy, available to us in the here and now. The wise man sees when he has been foolish, and learns from it. The foolish man is blind to his folly and refuse to learn.
