] New Age and Theosophy
The idea of karma was popularized in the Western world
through the work of the Theosophical Society
and Western New Age
reinterpretations of karma frequently cast it as a sort of luck associated with virtue: if one does good or spiritually valuable acts, one deserves and can expect good luck; conversely, if one does harmful things, one can expect bad luck or unfortunate happenings.[citation needed
] In this conception, karma is affiliated with the Neopagan
law of return or Threefold Law, the idea that the beneficial or harmful effects one has on the world will return to oneself. Colloquially this may be summed up as 'what goes around comes around.'
There is also the metaphysical idea that, because karma is a force of nature and not a sentient creature capable of making value judgments, karma isn't about good and evil deeds, because applying those labels would be judgmental, but that it is about positive and negative energy, where negative energy can include things not seen as "being bad" like sadness and fear, and positive energy can be caused by being creative and solving problems as well as by exuding love and doing virtuous acts.[citation needed
]It is referred to as "omniverse karma" or "omni-karma"[citation needed
] because it requires the existence of an omniverse
, that space that contains all possible universes. The omniverse idea includes concepts such as souls
, psychic energy, synchronicity
(a concept originally from psychoanalyst Carl Jung
, which says that things that happen at the same time are related), and ideas from quantum
or theoretical physics.
