Karma – Action Arising out of Denial of the Present Moment

Tolle

“Very often there is denial of what is happening in the present moment, not wanting it to happen, which includes what’s happening inside you at that moment, to completely say “yes” to whatever emotion may be there or whatever your inner state may be at this moment or to completely say “yes” to whatever the external situation may be at this moment. It’s too late to fight it because it is. You can’t fight what is. You can take action on the basis of your acceptance of what is. Action that arises out of that acceptance is very empowered. Action that arises out of a negative state of resistance and denial and saying ‘no.’ can also sometimes contain a lot of energy, but it is contaminated with heavy negativity. It comes out of the saying ‘no’ and it’s there to strengthen or defend the egoic sense of self. So, whatever action arises out of that would, in Eastern terms, be called “karmic” which produces further karma and further suffering.”

- Eckhart Tolle
