Karma is a term about the cycle of cause and effect. According to the theory of Karma, what happens to a person, happens because they caused it with their actions. It is an important part of many religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism
In terms of spiritual development, Karma is about all that a person has done, is doing and will do. Karma is not about punishment or reward.
It makes a person responsible for their own life, and how they treat other people.
Karma is basically energy. One person throws out energy through thoughts, words and actions, and it comes back, in time, through other people.
A metaphor is a figure of speech that directly refers to one thing by mentioning another to provide clarity or identify hidden similarities between two ideas.
Metaphors show up in literature, poetry, music, and writing, but also in speech. If you hear someone say “metaphorically speaking,” it probably means that you shouldn’t take what they said as the truth, but as more of an idea.
