Since the main emphasis in the following sections is “not-yet-happenings,” 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 “karmic tendencies.”
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 – either positive or negative karmic potentials.
Let us call the karmic tendencies that are not karmic forces simply karmic tendencies.
