Karma works both ways. If you do ignorant things, ignorant things may be done to you. Engage in generous actions, and at some future date, you may be the unexpected beneficiary of generosity. Expect more of the second than the first. Fate will bring sweet compensations for your past enlightened behavior. Remember the fairy tale in which a peasant girl goes out of her way to be kind to a seemingly feeble old woman? The crone is really a good witch who rewards the girl with a bag of gold. But there could also be a bit of that other kind of karma lurking. Would you like to ward it off? Unleash a flurry of good deeds. Any time you have a chance to help people in need, do it.
