What goes around...

As an individual we are, it is believed in some faith and religions that we keep creating our own karmic consequences and in this none is more true as in Buddhism. What we churn out through our actions in this realm of existence will decide for what we will inherit in our next, such is the basic tenet of Incarnation. This is not only true for the individual however, as we are collectively interrelated in our being and our psycho/ physical nature with the res of the planet, whatever we do collectively in this life also becomes our karmic responsibility. Through our human history mankind has fought against each other over anything and everything that could not be negotiated or talked it out. A man kills another over a water buffalo crossing into his neighbors field, another kills his neighbor because the other could not turn away from gazing zt his wife or daughter; we kill over the most ridiculous excuses and out of rage.
Collective we kill over the need to be recognize as a superior race or nation, we kill over the need to dominate and lord over our fellow humans, we need to possess what belongs to others and so forth. However today we kill simply over and idea, an 'ism', we kill over symbol or in the name of our religion. We as humans have become the most aggressive creature ever created on earth; we kill for sports. When viewed upon in the light of 'Karmic consequences', collectively we are guilty in a very big way and there is really no valid excuse for us anymore but to reap our transgressions through our generations yet to come. It is not hard to see that what we are reaping today is the transgressions of our fore fathers who were in their  own time killers and murderers when they decided to launch campaigns upon campaigns of conquest and colonization of weaker nations. 
Today we are witnessing how countries that have have negative karmic history are reaping their past actions as is happening in the United States, Britain and Germany and many other so called Developed nations. These nations are going through a Karmic cleansing from with and without. Other smaller nations are experiencing their own inner turmoil from past transgression of the powers that be in the form of civil wars and religious conflicts. There is no escape from the wheel of Karma for us as individuals or collectively and if we look at our own history we will discover the root of our grief and suffering. Deep rooted karma are lay dormant in every one of us as in our collective consciousness and for so long as we ignore and bury them to be forgotten, they will in time arise and cause untold miseries in our lives. 

“Even chance meetings are the result of karma… Things in life are fated by our previous lives. That even in the smallest events there’s no such thing as coincidence.” 
― Haruki MurakamiKafka on the Shore 

“The institutions of human society treat us as parts of a machine. They assign us ranks and place considerable pressure upon us to fulfill defined roles. We need something to help us restore our lost and distorted humanity. Each of us has feelings that have been suppressed and have built up inside. There is a voiceless cry resting in the depths of our souls, waiting for expression. Art gives the soul's feelings voice and form.” 
― Daisaku Ikeda
