Understanding Karma: The Truth About How Karma Works

Sooner or Later, You're Dancin' With the Reaper: While on Earth, you are living in the worlds of karma and reincarnation. As Soul you are eternal. You have past, present, and future lives. To grow in love, joy, and awareness, you reincarnate into a series of physical bodies to experience different existences. You have been or will be both sexes and all races, religions, and ethnic types throughout many lifetimes.
Karma Defined: Karma means that "as you sow, so also shall you reap" in this and other lifetimes until you understand the complete consequences of all your actions. Karma is the principle of cause and effect, action and reaction, total cosmic justice and personal responsibility. Karma begins to propel you as Soul on a personal journey through the universe. Karma ends when you have perfected yourself in your ability to love.

Here are "The Rules of Karma" Governing Life on Earth

1: KARMA TEACHES BY EXPERIENCE AND NOT TO PUNISH

Although it may often "feel" like punishment, the purpose of karma is to teach not to punish. Often the way we learn "the best" is to endure the same type of suffering that we have inflicted on others.

2: WE ARE ALL HERE TO LEARN LESSONS TAUGHT BY KARMA

We are all here to learn lessons as "spiritual beings in human form". These lessons are designed to help us grow into greater levels of love, joy, and awareness. They teach us to "choose love at every moment", to "forgive everyone, everything", and to "live happy". Where we do not choose love, show forgiveness, teach tolerance, or display compassion, karma intervenes to put us back on the path of these lessons.

3: WE "FORGET" ABOUT KARMA TO SEE IF WE HAVE LEARNED

Before we came to Earth, we agreed to put ourselves in the path of all that is we needed to learn. Once we got here, we agreed to "forget" this. The purpose of "forgetting" is to keep us from being overwhelmed by the totality of our past while making sure that we have really learned our lessons.

4: KARMA IS IMPERSONAL, LOGICAL, AND PREDICTABLE

Karma gives you the opportunity at every moment to become open to greater levels of love and compassion. It operates impersonally: applying to everyone, all the time, no exceptions. It is very logical: what you sow is what you reap in exact and precise measure. Karma is as predictable as the laws of gravity: what is done to you is the net result of what you have done to others.

5: KARMA IS PERFECTLY FAIR AND CREATES TOTAL JUSTICE

Every apparently "unjust" situation is perfectly just in the context of reincarnation. For example, there are no "innocent" people in prison today, they are there for a reason. If they appear "innocent" in this life, it is because they were "guilty" in a past life and "got away with it". The "innocent" feel "cheated" now because they cannot see the cause of this life was the effect of a past life when they were "guilty".

6: KARMA MAKES US LINK OUR ACTIONS WITH THEIR RESULTS

The cause of this life is always the effect of a past life(s). The goal of karma is to ensure that we link our actions (the cause) with their results (the effect). It is the loving God which helps each Soul develop it's highest spiritual potential through experience. It is our experience which teaches us the Law of Love.

7: KARMA TEACHES US TOTALLY RESPONSIBILITY

The goal of karma is to give you all the experiences that you need to evolve into greater levels of love, joy, awareness, and responsibility. Karma teaches that you are totally responsible for all the circumstances of your life: past, present, and future.

8: KARMA TEACHES US LOVE AND COMPASSION FOR ALL

"See that you are at the center of the universe... Accept all things as being part of you... When you perceive that an act done to another is done to yourself... you understand the great truth" (Lao Tse) Tolerance opens the door to compassion and love.

9: KARMA DRIVES US TO WHOLENESS AND UNITY WITH LIFE

Karma forces us to look beyond ourselves (oneness) so that we can see ourselves as we truly are (wholeness or Self Realization). Once we truly understand ourselves, we can see our divinity (God Realization) and our unity with all life.

10: KARMA DRIVES US TO SERVICE AND THEN TO LOVE

Karma drives us to service. Service - Co-Workership with God - is the ultimate expression of love. Love means service: service is your choice. Once you accept total responsibility for your life, you see yourself as Soul in service to life. Once you do, you become a fully realized Co-Worker with God.

11: UNDERSTANDING KARMA IS THE KEY TO HARMONY

"Belief in karma ought to make the life pure, strong, serene, and glad. Only our own deeds can hinder us; only our own will can fetter us. Once let us recognize this truth, and our liberation has struck. Nature cannot enslave the Soul that by wisdom has gained power and uses both in love" (Annie Besant).

12: FOR ANY QUESTION, LOVE IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER

"Love is our birthplace, our final refuge, and our reason for being. If we recognize that compassion and love are the ultimate destination of our journey, the heart of the universe responds" (Thomas Ashley-Farrand). Karma shows us that for any question love is the answer.

  1. Only one thing missing really: you yourself are the origin and arbiter of Karma. Karma is deeply personal at all levels. The Divine is the potential from which you emerge as identity and as active principle both. Karma is not subject to belief - Karma IS exactly what we ARE.Upon (Self)realization you, me, everyone of us, empties our whole experience [obtained through millions of (uncountable) iterations (from birth to death etc etc)] directly into the Divine. Thus does the One that has never not existed, even for a moment expand within its infinite capacity......
