I have always been the believer that karma only acts on our actions not our thoughts.

two cents worth
Thanks for the thread....you ask a very deep question, that no doubt many will have opinions of.
I am unsure in truth...but perhaps our only true privacy is our thoughts...God lets these go,but thoughts can spill over into actions, so we need to stop evil , before it externalises perhaps.
I also believe Karma can be overided if you repent.

I was thinking of asking, what levels does Karma have...if I think a certain thing, or if I do a certain thing, what level of thought does it need to be in order for karma to take effect. We are not thinking anything bad, lets say that if we thought or see something that produces a thought, does that thought have an effect on karma or will only an action with our body have an effect? I think in philosophy that my mind has an effect on everything.

I believe rather strongly that everything human beings do, think, and act out is recorded, and sent out to somewhere unknown. Let's just say I have seen a few things that make me think this.

"I do not believe our thoughts are privacy. " - Quote from OP
Hitler Mussolini Stalin charismatic mass murderers who lure pretty women into bed and their deaths?
They surely all didn't think beautiful thoughts?
Yet they fooled millions.
Millions thought them wonderful.
Yet they didn't care one iota about others that thought them great.
So how does inner thought produce 93% of our body language?
Or are we all so shallow that confidence and self love is what we all crave?

To imply Karma is to accept re-incarnation.
You very rarely in this life reap the rewards of your karma its in next ones usually unless it has an "immediacy" effect, ie If I went now and Killed or Hurt delibrately an Bodhisatva several things would be the result of that Karma (the actual effects would be huge or last for eons but the more immediate effects are) that as soon as I Died after that event there would be an immediate pulling down to an hell realm with the not usual in between time in the "staging area" shall we say. Also even though I have some initiations any practice would be of no benefit it would block out any chance of Enlightenment in this lifetime etc.
Thoughts Words Actions all create Karma, however what also creates Karma is doing nothing when you could have helped.
The motivation behind any action word or thought is what gives the results that you get back the "color" or "flavor" as such.
