Since the main emphasis in the following sections is â€œnot-yet-happenings,â€ and since the term karmic legacy connotes a relation with the past and karmic tendency a relation with the future, then for ease of expression and understanding, on this occasion we shall call karmic legacies â€œkarmic tendencies.â€
Also, to avoid confusion, let us use the term karmic energy for the karmic force that is simply the action and not its legacy.
As a general term for both types of karmic habit, let us use the term karmic latencies, to minimize confusion.
Let us call the karmic tendencies that are karmic forces karmic potentials â€“ either positive or negative karmic potentials.
Let us call the karmic tendencies that are not karmic forces simply karmic tendencies.
