The Little Book of Pay-It-Forward

Here’s something a little different. Whenever or wherever this journal travels, it travels with a gift for the next recipient. Doesn’t matter what the gift is or how big it is- it’s the idea that counts. It can be jewellery, a hand made bookmark or some bookbeads, a book from the next moocher’s wishlist, or anything else you can come up with. Your entry in the journal is essentially an open letter to the next recipient saying hi and ‘introducing’ your gift (once again, feel free to get as multi-media as you’d like), a thank you to the person who sent *you* the journal for their gift to you, or you could even just give an account of some other random act of kindness bestowed upon you.

Please remember to keep this moving and to relist here once you’re done with it.

Therefore, karma implies the action of conscious choice-making. Whether you like it or not, everything that is happening at this moment is a result of the choices you’ve made in the past. Unfortunately, a lot of us make choices unconsciously, and therefore we don’t think they are choices–and yet, they are. If you step back for a moment and witness the choices you are making as you make those choices, then in just this act of witnessing, you take the whole process from the unconscious realm into the conscious realm. This procedure of conscious choice-making and witnessing is very empowering.You can use the Law of Karma to create money and affluence, and the flow of all good things to you, any time you want. But first, you must become consciously aware that your future is generated by the choices you are making in every moment of your life. If you do this on a regular basis, then you are making full use of this law. The more you bring your choices into the level of your conscious awareness, the more you will make those choices which are spontaneously correct–both for you and those around you.
