Karma In Action: Finding Meaning, Making Choices by Constance L. Vincent

The Western world has a mistaken notion of karma’s true nature. Karma is generally thought of as a religious term, signifying reward or judgment for a person’s deeds. But this isn’t the case.

As author Constance L. Vincent, PhD, explains, karma is a tool we can all use to create positive change in our lives—because life reflects our thoughts and energy.

Using examples from personal experiences, Vincent clearly explains the twelve laws of karma and the different ways karma manifests in our lives. You’ll learn how karma can help you overcome obstacles, anticipate the future, and link unlikely but serendipitous events together for your own benefit. You’ll discover how individual responsibility relates to karmic outcomes. Life doesn’t happen to you—you make life happen.

In addition, you’ll learn about Vincent; her husband, Ed; and how their use of karma underlies their marriage. From the recurring motif of glass that paralleled events in Vincent’s early life to how Ed used the law of responsibility to overcome lung cancer, you’ll find practical, relatable examples of karma as a tool for action.

Learn how to use your karma. Your life will never be the same.

Editorial Review: Reviewed by Neil A White for Readers' Favorite

Told through a fascinating series of life-experience anecdotes by psychologist Constance L Vincent Ph. D., Karma In Action (Finding Meaning, Making Choices) is an expertly researched and masterfully explained book detailing the twelve laws of Karma. The concept of Karma - the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences - comes to us from Buddhist teachings, but the overriding principle is paraphrased in many of today's religions (e.g. Christianity's golden rule).

In Dr. Vincent's words: "Karma is not only about unraveling the past to find clues that explain the present or future. No one has to wait until old age to become enlightened." And it is on this basis that she takes us through many of the life lessons she has learned over time and relayed them back to one of the corresponding twelve laws. There is something to be learned by every reader in Dr. Vincent's teachings - whether religious or agnostic - as she cleverly links together the spiritual aspects of karma with a solid basis in psychological theory, thereby helping us to fully understand the cause and effect of one's decision making.

A cynic may conclude that it would take an extremely brave - or foolhardy - reviewer to rate a book on karma anything less than five stars, though I would be the exception to that rule. I fall squarely on the agnostic side of the ledger when it comes to matters of spirituality, and have been called far worse than foolhardy. That being said, I found Dr. Vincent's Karma In Action a fascinating read and well worthy of a five star rating.

Not Going Gently: A Psychologist Fights Back against Alzheimer's
for Her Mother and Perhaps Herself by Constance Vincent PhD

A poignant mother-daughter memoir, Not Going Gently fuses story and science together into a unique book. Constance L. Vincent, PhD, shares her mother’s personal experience living with Alzheimer’s, intertwined with her own professional research into the disease.

Striving to use her skills to protect her mother’s mental and emotional health, Dr. Vincent must cope with the fact that she is too late to stop the disease. And as she learns how to care for her ailing parent, she can’t help comparing her own age-related memory changes with her mother’s. But instead of allowing loss and fear to claim victory over her future, Dr. Vincent chooses love and hope as she educates herself on the disease and studies the latest research.

While most books about Alzheimer’s focus on only one aspect of the disease from either a scientific or personal perspective, this book expertly melds the two in an all-inclusive portrait of the disease. And it not only honestly addresses this devastating illness that affects millions of people and their loved ones, but also offers hope through groundbreaking prevention plans.

There are two different paths of aging—and you can choose which one you take.
