Is there a neutral state prior to karma?

Asked by whiteliondreams (1717points) June 10th, 2012

Buddhist doctrine describes karma as the literal translation, which is “action”. My action is my doing. My karma is my doing. I have been thinking of the karma and nirvana connection and am trying to figure out if there is a neutral state prior to any action, such as neutrons for instance. If there is a neutral state, but this state somehow comes into contact with a negative or positive reaction, this would change the notion of neutrality into an action (karma). Therefore, in order to obtain nirvana, does this mean that a state of neutrality must be achieved? If so, how?
