Does this mean, being more a mindful person, his wrong action's consequences different to those who don't have any intention. If action and intention are interconnected in terms of the force of Karma, then it is becoming more confusing.
What makes it confusing is having been raised in the Judeo-Christian culture in which ethics and morality are based on sets of rules. To encounter an ethical system which is not rule-based is confusing.
The big thing about karma is that is is individual. So generalizing is very difficult to do.
If someone is habitually careless, why
are they careless? Are they careless because they have a mental deficiency that prevents them analysing consequences, or do they just not give a s***? The karmic consequences are different in the two cases. Being incapable of analysing consequences is not a choice, and therefore consequences of their actions (good or bad) are not intentional. Someone who just doesn't care about the consequences in choosing not to care is making an intentional decision not to do so. That intention has consequences.
