“I believe in Karma. If the good is sown, the good is collected. When positive things are made, that returns well.”– Yannick Noah
Before we start talking about KARMA Tips let me ask you a question -Do you know what is the most littered item in the world?
Surprisingly, its cigarette butts. With nearly 4.5 trillion butts littered annually, they are the most littered items in the world. Considering the fact that each cigarette butt can take 5-400 years to break down completely, you might want to consider how much bad Karma you are earning from the universe with each butt you litter.
Karma is an infinite cycle with no end or beginning. The word karma itself signifies “doing” or action. The possibility of earning bad Karma strikes fear in the mind of many who know that their actions insidiously harm humanity as a whole. Small things make large impacts and the consequences often snowball.
If you look back, be it our age-old texts or recent History, no man has been spared the after effects of their actions. Karmic debts are best cleared in this lifetime only. We do not know what baggage we carry, but we can reduce the burden with appropriate actions in this lifetime.
Awareness is the key. We do accumulate bad karma both knowingly and unknowingly. But, we can discharge our debts knowingly. Let us take the instance of smoking. We inadvertently harm ourselves, our family and friends through passive smoking and the environment as a whole by exhaling toxic fumes and littering cigarette butts.
To make smoking a bit more responsible for you and rewarding for the Planet, the husband-wife duo from KARMA Tips has introduced the concept of embedded Kikuyu seeds in 100% biodegradable organic filter paper. You no longer need to let a bad habit consume the good karma you have earned. An initiative like KARMA Tips lets you give back in a small way and reap huge benefits.
Planting trees will negate the harm inducing Karma that smoking creates and create good Karma by adding greenery and freshness to the world around you.
Find avoiding bad Karma by kicking the butt impossible? At least start planting the butt and reducing the karmic debt burden.
