How exactly is it with this karma? The matter came up through a post on LinkedIn.
The question was whether it is the instigators or the performers who reap worse or more bad karma?
There seems to be an “expert opinion” that says it is the doers. Interesting.
My experience shows otherwise. The instigators indirectly cause suffering to those affected. The perpetrators simply do it more directly.
And yes, every being is responsible for its actions.
But the instigators also cause suffering to the perpetrators.
Because they motivate them to do “bad” things.
BUT IS THAT THE RIGHT QUESTION?
When a being is awake/conscious or at least working towards it, something is important above all. What is the direction of its actions? What is the intention behind it?
AND THAT IS THE WAY
