How do you change your standing from a mislead worldly soul living of the crumbs of your karma, to a divine being who can control his destiny?……….Karma Is Like A Credit Card Enjoy It Now and Pay Later.
One. To fully understand the law of cause and effect you have to first take the word innocent out of your dictionary as there is no such thing. What does all this mean in layman’s terms? The Master explains that all the today’s in one’s life are determined by the actions of all the yesterdays, and all the tomorrows of one’s life depend upon the way in which all the today’s are handled and lived. Those who have misused God-given independence, the gift of the power of human reason and free will have brought about The Law of Cause and Effect and its lawful results and are responsible for man’s miseries and despairs. This alone explains why God’s responsibility ended when he endowed man with free will and reason.
Understanding Karma as the law of cosmic justice underlines life’s inequalities and will serve to free the human mind from hatred and resentment against God and men. The law of karma means “ Vengeance is mine I’ll repay; what good and need are man’s poor resources? The Universal Law of Karma will deal out the retribution.” Those with dull minds do not consider the possibility of Divine justice. We are told only those who do not grasp there is a law of cause and effect believe in fate or chance. Now, take these two words out of your dictionary, hate and innocent, because if you haven’t accepted and understood the inescapability of karmic retribution you have not even jumped the first hurdle in your spiritual development.
Understanding Karma For Dummies 1 Through 19 What You Think You Know But You Don’t
Two. We must all learn that the intelligence of men cannot be properly directed until he has accepted and understood the inescapability of karmic retribution. Once you have accepted karmic retribution in your life you attain great strength of mind and you will no longer resent anyone for anything that happens to you in life because you understand that everything that happens to you sub serves a divine purpose for your spiritual training, you will no longer complain about anything. Not only do you have your own karma, you have the city karma in which you live and the state in which you live, the country in which you live, the planet, the solar system, and the galaxy. There are at least another fifty of the various types of karma which affect our lives. All people are subject to mass karma as well as individual karma.
There are two kinds of people, those who still have earthly karma to dispose of and must therefore rein-habit a gross physical body in order to pay their karmic debt as the human body is the ransom for your soul freedom. All of us now have been caught by the terrorist here in this planet and we are paying our ransom on this body for our soul’s freedom.
Three. Those who have not been caught for breaking the laws of karma should not consider themselves free, innocent or guiltless than some who were condemned and punished for their offenses for they will be convicted as they are apprehended by the cosmic laws of cause and effect. These are words of warning for people who become complacent and assume themselves as rightfully virtuous and secure. They so far have not had the misfortune visited upon others. Every person by their actions and thoughts becomes the designer of their destiny. Whatever universal activity’s he or she unwisely or wisely sets into motion, will boomerang back to them as their starting point, completing itself like a circle making this world look like a math equation balancing itself.
Worldly temptations constantly urge us to do wrong by appealing to present habits and prenatal karmic tendencies. It is wrong to interpret the hollow voice of our ego as divine guidance for the voice of the ego is devoid of divine guidance and one soon learns that no matter how much misguided rationalization one uses, nothing can lessen the karmic responsibility of hasty actions. Rationalization is never the answer, for you will always justify your reasons for the things you want to do.
Four. Those condemned by the judge for breaking the cosmic laws are sent to the penitentiary of suffering by the official officers of karmic inclinations accumulated from wrong actions. Your playing with karmic fire especially when interfering with spiritual or religious beliefs. It is impossible to escape from the tribunal of cosmic laws that govern every single human action until we all worked out and fully paid our karmic bills through reformation, suffering and prayers for deliverance. In time it is possible to be partially or wholly free from adverse effects of bad karma.
Who Is Your Parole Officer
God does not punish or reward us. We have been given free will: the power to reward or punish ourselves when we misuse our own will and reason. When man transgresses the laws of wisdom, prosperity and health, he punishes himself accordingly with ignorance, poverty, and ill-health. The misguided man should parole himself from the prison of his own past bad habits. Since man judges himself, there is no jail of suffering that will hold him if he chooses to liberate himself.
However your subconscious mind has within it an entire dossier where you shall be judged at the end of your life. At the end of every incarnation you will be presented with all the records of your subconscious mind, the specific dossier of every thought, word, feeling and actions which you have acted upon since your birth have being filmed; the subconscious mind contains endless videotaping and this is why you cannot say “no no I didn’t do it.” With human videotaping you may escape the law but actions recorded by the subconscious mind cannot escape divine laws. At the very inception when cosmic laws are breached the sin couches itself in the sub-consciousness of the executor as a cause-effect impression that predicts inevitable justice.
Five. There are credulous offenders who want to be free of karmic suffering and consider it sufficient to seek confession from an everyday priest to receive divine amnesty through confession of their sinful evil deeds. There is mental consolation that confession confers on them and grants pardon, but the operation of the karmic laws are too subtle to be seen and they deem themselves to be forgiven. The selfish fear of consequences along with shallow prayer will not bring God randomly to counteract the just and truthful workings of the laws of cause and effect. Men would continue in error if permitted to do so without consequences. God cannot be moved by bartered deals of good behavior for past misconduct or sporadic emotions of praise. With heart felt divine love and devoted sincerity any sin and its consequences can be forgiven, not by mere supplication. The more you forgive, the more karmic law will forgive you. Remember, you can praise God all day long. He will not come. When we blame Him, He will never come. Blame and praise will never move Him. The way to God is through His law.
Six. Our karmic pattern will determine how high or low our status is at birth. Take heed: If you are a man and you feel superior to women, you may and can be reborn as a woman in your next incarnation. If you are a women who envy’s men, you will have to come back as a man. We have a tremendous problem with race and religious hatred in our planet today.
With the amount of intelligence we have some behave like complete barbarians and there is nothing we can do about it because you cannot change the mass consciousness of people until each individual is willing to change. The deep truths of the karmic laws should not be viewed upon metaphysically as an abstraction but as a way of life. This is why it is so important not to associate with lowlifes. The snake is impervious to its own venom but the poison is harmful to someone who is bitten; our only rational course of action is to exterminate the snakes or not go near them without an antidote. The intelligent man remedies the situation by remaining in good company and by removing himself from the company of evil people. You and I are our own saviors.
Seven. What is your karma from the world today? We are all linked together and bound by common fate and our own thoughts, feelings, words, and actions which totally affect our own lives and this helps us bind or liberate the world at large.
Eight. There is a difference between karma and fate (destiny). Karma is not fate; fate (destiny) is when you are not making any spiritual effort and therefore you are totally manipulated by mass karma. Not only you do have your own karma, you have the city karma in where you live, the state and country in which you live, the planet, the solar system, and the galaxy. We have at least another fifty of the various types of karma which affect our lives. All people are subject to mass karma as well as individual karma. Any earthquakes, wars or natural cataclysms are the result of mass karma that may affect many whose individual karma may not warrant it except that they were in that environment and you cannot avoid mass karma unless you make a deep spiritual effort. In reality there is no such thing as fate it is only used as a general term. What is destiny? That is the question; destiny is the forgotten past of current effects which were created by you in your life that forges the chain of your destiny. Some call it fate. There is no way you are destined to be or do anything except which you have created by yourself. Only you preordain yourself to be bad or good when you repeat harmful or beneficial actions.
Nine. Have you convinced yourself that you utterly refuse to be treated the same way a human animal is and you will not be bound by the sluggish progress of natural evolution. If you don’t you are gambling that destiny will guide your life and you will never become a master of yourself in life or at death. This is the fate of those who refuse to take command of their life. Lives governed solely by the laws of cosmic causation and the karmic laws are the hidden players in the game of life. You lose your independence and you cannot say yes or no when herded to the right path or evil ways.
The warning is real, however in the name of freewill or freedom it is in our nature as human beings to desire to do the things that are bad for us. Mention to the self-willed individual to do a thing that is good and naturally he will do just the opposite however, by using our freedom to choose to do good or evil we become the creator of our fate or destiny. We have the power to accept or refuse to act for either good or evil. Before we act we have freedom. The effect of all actions will follow us. That is the cosmic laws of justice.
Ten. It does not matter whether you believe in karma or not. The law of karma operates with or without your permission. Some people are not convinced about reincarnation. There is no convincing; you either believe it or you don’t. You know yourself through the power of intuition and you cannot convince anyone to believe in anything.
The law of karma governs the whole universe and it is impossible to avoid or escape it by crude force. Karma chases after us no matter how fast we run away from it. Everything is integrated with magnetic laws working in mathematical exactitude in the universe and as long as you are in ego consciousness anything can happen to you at any time. Anything you are cognizant of outwardly leaves its vibration within yourself. People get raped, beaten up, robbed, or whatever calamity arrives into their lives because they have drawn themselves there.
A few years ago a man drove his car into twenty people in Los Angeles near the UCLA campus. Some people who were in Westwood at that time got killed and some were untouched. What were they doing there? They were magnetically drawn by a specific karma. Here is how you can protect yourself from future accidents. Just one word of God may save your life. When you get into your car say these words, “my Lord I have not forgotten you.” This could save you from a fatal accident waiting to happen to you. Don’t forget this one.
Eleven. The law of success is scientific in nature. We are responsible for ourselves and no one can answer for our own actions. You need to learn all of these laws on your own, so you have to be your own teacher. It is imperative to learn about the laws of karma, habits and the subconscious mind, will power, and the importance of meditation.
The law of cause and effect and its corollary of karma govern the action of people. When a child fails to make the grade at school, he has to return back to his earthly school again and again to pass all of his examinations. As it is with souls who fail in their performance of detachment, morality, spirituality, self-control and calmness must also return back to preserve their perfection in the schools of mortality to bring out their spirit-nature.
Accordingly with this law, the soul magnetizes to itself to either a good or bad mentality or a good or bad heredity according to habits and desires formed in past incarnations determined by our “astral-blueprints.”
Twelve. In the science of understanding karma you very quickly realize you are not dealing with ethics, moral codes, or constitutional rights; but you are dealing with cosmic laws and magnetic forces few people are aware of therefore you become more intelligent and you do not fight anymore with anyone; you begin to study your own behavior.
Have you ever wondered why some have the karma to be born blind or soon become blind or crippled? It is said that some go blind very early in life with certain deformities such as becoming mentally retarded for laughing and enjoying the view of lions eating Christians in the Coliseum or from blinding others. Those with overly progressive or liberal tendencies who defame others for disagreeing with them are also playing with karmic fire especially interfering with spiritual or religious beliefs. Remember what happened to those who persecuted the Christians. Those whose astral-blueprints are tainted with obnoxious bad habits become extremely terrified at the time of death and try to become deaf to the call of death.
The karmic laws of justice are called the “unseen controllers” recording everything we do twenty four hours a day. There is no place we can hide to escape our actions; and I tell you, if I was a lawyer or doctor I would really sweat it out, but as a teacher it could be even worse if they do not tell the truth.
Thirteen. Committing suicide is an extremely grave and fateful karmic spiritual crime. Dim minded people who foolishly hope by ending their life to get away from the miserable burdens of their bad karma have another thing coming; suicide multiplies their karmic burdens by fueling it instead of removing it. Those individuals who have left their bodies in a state of sin as with those who foolishly and ruthlessly committed suicide are thought of as tainted souls in the astral spheres.
Fourteen. The karmic consequences for abortion. By killing the entity you are inhibiting the development of the ego of that entity. By thwarting this process of growth this living entity must again wait in the astral world for its chance to complete its designated karma in another body. One of the consequences for having an abortion is in future incarnations the mother in question will have to suffer the same sorrow of being aborted to experience the same loss of spiritual evolution. This is the karmic law.
Fifteen. Mass karma can affect everyone and it comes in many forms. Look at how many people were affected with the housing bubble that owned a home. It could be monetarily underwater as most houses have lost forty percent of their value. Back then we had a democratic administration and news media that pretended to care about unemployment but did nothing about it while millions are unemployed and have stopped looking for work. You are being lied to constantly by politicians that care more about themselves and could care less about you. Not all of them are bad just the one’s with the most power. Yet there are people who are untouched by mass karma and are doing better than ever. This is because they have made the effort in this life or in a past incarnation and are unscathed by any of this. To avoid mass karma you must make a deep spiritual effort and it’s not five minutes or your money back. You must make a permanent commitment.
Now is the time to change your place in your karmic destiny. You are the only form of life on this earth that has a choice or you can just flow with everything the way it is like a ball rolling downhill. That’s easy right? Wrong; the hard way is the easy way. Make a stand; redirect your destiny untouched by the effects of the century we are currently living in. Without a true understanding of spirituality people become more preoccupied with worries of what is going to happen in Iran, Israel, and Afghanistan and there is no time for God and meditation.
And for those who say they completely surrender to God’s will, they should know their surrender means absolutely nothing if they worry about what is coming to them tomorrow. When you worry about tomorrow it’s your funeral all arranged by yourself. Why be buried alive by your anxieties? Why suffer and die daily?
Most people have no idea how to make that a reality. You can start by applying these four principals with an iron will:
- First forget what you did in the past what’s done is done and you can’t change it, don’t dwell or grieve on the past forget it. By listening to the voice of our own ego, attributing it to an aura of divine guidance one soon learns that no matter how much misguided rationalization one uses, nothing can lessen the karmic responsibility of wrongful actions.
- You live in the moment now to the fullest by focusing and making the best of it.
- You do not worry about the future. Emotions are like a moving pendulum with most people. Why? Because pleasure comes with a fulfilled desire and sorrow comes with a unfulfilled desire that is not satisfied. How many times do you have to be told what Krishna has said in the Gita, “Be even minded in sorrow and pleasure?” When you live in an impregnable fortress of understanding, no sadness can touch you when your emotions are anchored in that which is changeless. Whatever happens, say to yourself, “it’s alright. I’m just dreaming in God’s dream and naught can touch me.” If you take the ups and downs of life to seriously you’re in for a rough roller coaster ride.
- You stay in the middle at all times and that means when joy and sorrow comes you learn to stay in the middle. That’s how you rid yourself of grief, anger, sorrow, fear, stress, nervousness and many other adverse feelings.
- Meditate on these 4 steps and you will start achieving victory over yourself.
Sixteen. Many hospitals are like karmic chambers of torture especially for those who take drugs. When we abuse our bodies badly enough after we leave our current incarnation and the time comes for us to reincarnate, we may be born into the womb of a mother who has been taking drugs during her pregnancy. Then we could be reborn with multiple birth defects. This is the karmic law of cause and effect. We can see these poor souls on the streets everywhere. Why be reborn with a handicap? Once we are aware of these laws and we ignore them, it may even worse for that soul to learn these lessons of hard knocks.
These effects of good or bad actions in our present incarnation remain in our sub consciousness, and all the effects brought over from past incarnations lie in wait in our super consciousness, like seeds, ready to germinate in a karmically defined time whether mental or physical. Every action, unconscious or conscious will have an exact effect on our lives. Previous actions are not just those you did days, weeks, months and years ago but actions from your past existences as well. Each person by actions and thoughts become the architect of his or her own future or destiny and whatever actions unwisely or wisely he or she has performed must come back to him or her completing itself like a circle. You must be fanatically positive in order not to stimulate paste karmic seeds.
Seventeen. Karma Vs. Luck
Not many people recognize that universal law rules over all actions and decides their effects. The fate of each person is not accidental but concurrent to the effects that we set into motion. All conditions in ones life can be traced back to a particular action. There is no good or bad luck that one has not formed in the past. There is no accidental fate except that which was preordained by one’s own actions.
There is no such thing as luck but the notion of “being in the right place at the right time” seems that you are lucky but that is just the pendulum swinging back in your favor as the universe comes to your support when universal laws are all working harmoniously together from good karma.
The universal law of karma governs our lives. Cause and effect is what determines the fruits of our actions. This is why it is so hard to change our state of affairs and conditions.
Eighteen. Those with overly progressive or liberal tendencies who defame others for disagreeing with them are also playing with karmic fire especially interfering with spiritual or religious beliefs. Journalists, professors, commentators, progressive websites, newspapers, radio, TV broadcasters and their parent companies, bloggers and publications giving False News or those mentioned who love to spice up reporting and pickle gossip or leaks to put up their own agenda for political gain to destroy or harm the soul of others are committing a spiritual crime by catering to the degraded taste of their base, listeners and readers who are uniformed, like-minded and gossip lovers.
Worst of all is paying a karmic bill from a past incarnation of indiscretions of cheating on your mate. There could be thousands of years of past life actions pursuing someone. This is why the average person is so helpless against the binding effects of past karmic actions. It is impossible to escape from the tribunal of cosmic laws that govern every single human action until we all work out and fully pay our karmic bills through reformation, suffering and prayers for deliverance. In time it is possible to be partially or wholly free from adverse effects of bad karma.
Nineteen. The Karmic Consequences For Adultry. The laws of karma work with or without your permission. You will unknowingly be karmicly induced into a rotten marriage to pay back your karmic debt. However once the bill has been paid you can extricate yourself with willpower from the bondage of a bad marriage.
In obtaining the knowledge of karma’s iron law propels all earnest seekers to discover the final escape of its bonds.
There are other steps one may take without fail to avert or lessen unfavorable karmic recompense to reduce or cancel out the harmful effects of past bad actions, such as cultivating spiritual consciousness for redemption and grace, love for God, devotional sincerity, faith, deep prayers to the divine and yoga meditation. However a balanced life is necessary for a loose emotional life and the great science of yoga mediation is incompatible. Is karmic suffering inevitable? Well, yes it is if one is too lazy to take the necessary steps mentioned above. Classify yourself and you will find your own answer. PY.
