Problems and Solutions

The active Principle of the Round is known as Karma or conditioned action, action that is arriving from motive and seeking a result-the type of action that requires the necessity of further action. Man is involved with Karma when he interferes in the world in such a way that he is compelled to go on interfering, when the solution of a problem creates still more problems to be solved, when the control of one thing creates the need to control several others. Karma is thus the fate of everyone who ‘tries to be God’. He lays a trap for the world in which he himself gets caught.

– From the ‘Way of Zen’ by Alan Watts
