Karma is the most confusing word for so much has been written and spoken by many that people never could easily digest what was being said.
Karma is a way that provides no joy in life for it only creates lust and fear within for the contorted ways and methods have been provided over the ages that only makes sure that every single being lives and enjoys the contorted version of karmic philosophy.
Karma for animals and plants are different from human beings. This difference is what creates fear which finally results in lust happening.
Animals and plants live through a pre-decided karmic life cycle while humans have to follow multiple ways to actually see the true path of karma.
This difference is seen from the fact that humans take on the responsibilities, have accountability, love and affection for the deeds they follow.
Humans normally take the path of karma to be followed by animals and plants thereby destroying the very essence of their life force this breaks them into the eternal path of trauma and suffering. This suffering will never lead a human being to live the life in a humane manner rather they would only look for family, rearing children and finally moving forward to a life cycle which is not much different.
Animalistic demands and responsibility are more or less dependent upon physical requirement only while human demands are based on freedom and intellect.
One who wants to lead a life of human being has to know the true path that is finding the essence of joy. This joy happens when the joy is found in life within and around. Joy in sadhana, joy in sewa, joy in satsang, joy in surrender, joy in devotion, this joy in itself helps one to come out of the life of lust and narrow vision. This in itself makes you human in true sense and in essence.
