Improve Your Karma

You know what karma is, don't you?

Simply put, it's the idea that whatever you do comes back to you.

Sure, you can get all esoteric, and talk about rebirth and store consciousness and karmic bundles.

But it's simpler than that. When you smile at someone, they're more likely to smile back.

As those sixties sages the Beatles put it:

In the end

The love you take

Is equal to the love you make.

Smile. Talk nice. Do people favors.

As my dad says, "You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." ('Though I never could figure out why you'd want to catch flies...)

Maybe take it up to the next level. Donate. Volunteer. Make sacrifices for others.

Or just be humane to that poor lady at the DMV.

You'll feel better about yourself, and people will probably be nicer to you.

And you'll be happier.
