Katsuma means: 'Action', and refers to the law of cause and effect.

The concept of katsuma encapsulates the understanding that every thought, word, action, or experience (i.e. reaction / response to situation, circumstance or events,) no matter how seemingly small or insignificant, will have consequences - be they beneficial or otherwise.

Our present circumstances - state of health, relationships, mindset, achievements, etc - are all essentially the result of past thoughts, words, actions & experiences; and our future circumstances will be influenced by current thoughts, words, actions & experiences.

Katsuma speaks to us of the power latent within action - of the power and importance of thought, word & action - & also encourages us to be mindful of the probable outcomes resulting from our actions.

In Te-Ate practices, the primarily focus on katsuma is in an aetiological sense: inquiry into the origin/causation of im-balance, dis-order & dis-ease (be it physical, emotional, interpersonal, spiritual, environmental, etc).

By perceiving clearly how dis-harmonious states arise, not only can we initiate remedial action in order to restore the desired state of dynamic balance (be it in our selves, our relationships or our environment), but we can - more importantly - begin to take personal responsibility for reducing the likelihood of dis-harmonious states arising in the first place.
