one of the things the kara repesents is that its a circle which describes God as it has no beginning or end
But one thing to remeber is that the kara also reminds you that your not suppose to do anything bad with these hands that God has gaven you
ਮਾਗਉ ਦਾਨੁ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾਲ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਨਿਧਿ ਮੇਰਾ ਮੁਖੁ ਸਾਕਤ ਸੰਗਿ ਨ ਜੁਟਸੀ ਰੇ ॥
I beg this blessing of You, O Merciful Lord, ocean of mercy - please, don't bring me face to face with the faithless cynics.
ਜਨ ਨਾਨਕ ਦਾਸ ਦਾਸ ਕੋ ਕਰੀਅਹੁ ਮੇਰਾ ਮੂੰਡੁ ਸਾਧ ਪਗਾ ਹੇਠਿ ਰੁਲਸੀ ਰੇ ॥੨॥੪॥੩੭॥
Make servant Nanak the slave of Your slave; let his head roll in the dust under the feet of the Holy. ||2||4||37||

Also have a read of:
as it might help in the learning of both Jaap Sahib which is soo beautiful for your soul, as well as develop yourself physically.
Meeting with the Society of Saints, the cup of Lord's Love is filled with Ambrosial Nectar; drinking it in, one's corruptions and sins are wiped away.

Our community is also facing a problem due to non sikhs wearing our symbols and then doing silly things. It ends up giving our community a bad name.

I think you shouldn't wear a kara at all. A lot of Sikhs do get offended when non-sikhs (especially Hindus and Muslims) wear karas. Check out a thread called "can moneh wear karas" out. You will see what I am talking about here.

Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
A kara has a lot of symbolic value: if you respect the symbolism, i would strongly suggest wearing one!

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
John Adams (1735 - 1826),
Religion must mainly be a matter of principles only. It cannot be a matter of rules. The moment it degenerates into rules, it ceases to be a religion, as it kills responsibility which is an essence of true religion.

The thread- starter says that they are non-Sikh- and do NOT plan on being baptized - then WHY ARE YOU PLANNIN ON WEARIN ONE???! Just becuase you do Kundalini Yoga doesnt mean that you have the right to go abot wearin a Kakaar.
^^ I sound really in-your-face there lol am not being moody about the situation but I don't think you should wear one - you got no reason to wear one. I understand that you have read into this Religion and the spiritual meaning of the Kara but why just wear it about - it aint a fashion-item.#
I also get the feeling that MOST other faithed people wear a Kara or want a Kara becuase they see a Kara like they see that 'budda' u know the laughin budda that people keep in their house...messed up
