Compensation by Ralph Waldo Emerson (Summary)

The equilibrating law of Karma, is that of action and reaction, cause and effect, sowing and reaping. 

In the course of natural righteous, each man by his thoughts and actions, become the molder of his destiny.

Whatever universal energies he himself, wisely or unwisely, has set in motion must return to him as their starting point, like a circle inexorably completing itself.

The world look like a mathematical equation, which turn it how you will balance itself. Every secret is told, every crime is punished, every virtue rewarded, every wrong redressed, in silence and certainity.
