But when you add the human component and the extra layers of nuance in feelings... For example, its the difference between saying "I Love You" to someone in a sweet gentle sincere voice...
and saying "I Love You" in a nasty, sarcastic bitter voice.
In other words, "Karma" is a cyclic energy – “what goes around comes around” (what you put out you get, harming or praising you).
"Karma" is the universal law of justice that balances the energetic forces of your life - there is no escaping it - everyone is personally responsibility for all that they have ever done.
"Karma" is sometimes considered life's "hard knocks" - the many unpleasant experiences a soul goes through here on planet earth.
We are always in choice to react or not react to someone’s actions towards us.
Karma also has no time limits - if in one moment in one life you set in motion a particular energy, you might not immediately reap the fruit of it until many years or many lives later.
But If one plants a seed in the ground, that seed will eventually grown into a tree - this is "Karma". One can perform so called "good acts" with bad intent and negative energy, but this might not result in the best possible outcomes.
When we start to do this, we turn a good thing into a bad. These exist within ones dimensional energy bodies as negatively charged "vortices" or "spins" of energy - also known as "samscaras" - which distort and block the life flow.
Instead of expanding and freeing up our soul, it traps, contracts and binds us further to our ego-mind. Bad Karma “Bad karma” is when you send a “negative” (contracting and limiting) energy out into the world - a negative energy will eventually come back to you. These "samscaras" can also be likened to scratches or gooves in a record: at first such scratches are superficial, but the more one repeats (reinforces) a negative behavior (habit), the more it eventually become deep groves or compulsions (like most addictions).
