No matter how much of our life we have squandered, wasted, and even ruined, engaging in good deeds can transform one's karma from negative to positive. That's the point made by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin. In his book, A Code of Jewish Ethics he cites Oskar Schindler writing that he was "a womanizer and a dishonest businessman. But during World War II, when he came to realize the Nazis' murderous intentions, he repeatedly risked his life and employed remakrable ingenuity to save the lives of more than eleven hundred Jews. By changing his ways, Schindler transformed the association people previously had with him and his name...'Schindler' has become a byword for courage and compassion."
