Art Spotlight: 'Good Karma'

'Good Karma' by Cristina McAllister
Interwoven hearts at the center radiate arrows of positive energy, which interact with other  forces and return love to the center. Encircling is an ouroboros - a mystical symbol of cyclic nature, eternal return and self-recreation. 

The theory of Karma is essentially: "you get what you give" - a cosmic system of reciprocity and balance. 
This same basic concept is also reflected on an ethical level with the "Golden Rule", which urges us to treat others as we would like to be treated.  
In modern magickal teachings, the Threefold Law states that whatever energy a person puts out into the world, be it positive or negative, will be returned to that person three times.
This universal concept of "what goes around comes around" is an essential pillar of human society, shaping our notions of community, ethics, justice and spirituality.
