Ye cannot live for yourselves
Ye cannot live for yourselves; a thousand fibres connect you with your fellow-men, and along those fibres, as along sympathetic threads, run your actions as causes, and return to you as effects. – Henry Melvill

Perhaps, you can call it karma in a religious way while physicists recognised it as Newton’s Third Law of Motion: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Knowing this, what kind of effect do we choose to create?
