Giving Back: Servitude
"Newton’s third law of motion tells us that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. In physics, this means that when an object collides with a target, there is an equal force going into and away from the target at the same time. The law of Karma generalizes this rule to all areas of life, beyond just physical motion.
When a person exerts a force on another part of life, that force will go into its intended target, but it will also return back to the person. We experience the truth of this whenever we give someone else an encouraging word or a helping hand. We send out a force of compassion towards them by what we say and do and instantly we feel that same compassion in ourselves in the form of a good feeling.
When we send out positive energy to others, we cannot avoid the inevitable return of that good energy back onto ourselves. Sometimes it comes back right away, and other times it may take a while, but it will always circle back, and that is the simple and inevitable law of Karma."
