Our Intentions & Karma

Karma is really a form of causality. We think and behave in a certain way and that thought and associated behaviour is linked causally to an effect. There's nothing mystical about karma. It's simply that our deep thought intentions, and feelings, operating at a subconscious level tend to manifest in our third density environment as behaviour

A simple example is an adolescent who dislikes society. S/he will tend to associate with other like minded adolescents who collectively display what others may consider to be antisocial activity. Their karma is predictable. They will run into social problems and experience some form of social backlash. Karma in this example is simply the result of behaviour that attracts a backlash from others. If I throw bricks at people it's just a matter of time before I take a hit from someone who also throws bricks, so my karma is the result of hanging out with people who throw bricks!

Karma as Inertia

Ra uses inertia as an analogy to help us understand the way that they understand karma. An object that is set in motion in a vacuum will continue moving until stopped by another force. In much the same way a karmic cycle once set in motion, will continue until it is stopped by a higher principle. In this case, in the spiritual realm, the higher principle is an act of forgiveness. Full eradication of karma requires forgiveness of our self and all other-selves involved in a karmic cycle

Ra expands on this concept by referring to the Law of One which is inclusive of all people. We and others may appear to each other as separate entities in our third density experience, but under the Law of One we are all part of the One Creator so forgiving oneself for an inappropriate action automatically includes forgiveness of all other-selves. Under the Law of One a person who set in motion a negative karmic sequence that she/he needs to break must forgive him/herself, and never again hold the negative thought that caused the negative karma

Getting Rid of Negative Karma

The process of removing negative karma involves thoughts of respect, comfort, and healing. Holding such forgiving thoughts in our mind can be part of our restitution effort

From a Christian perspective an illustration of a negative karmic cycle being broken is found in Christian literature where Yeshua, whilst experiencing excruciating pain, said, Father, forgive them. [1] By that act of forgiveness he both forgave his tormentors and also broke the cycle of negative karma that would have otherwise been their ongoing experience. The Law of One teaches us that we are one. So by forgiving them Yeshua forgave all

Learning to Clean Our Thoughts

The source of personal karma is found in our thoughts. Paul, the New Testament Christian, seems to have been aware of this when he instructed the Philippi church to fill their minds with loving thoughts and to avoid all negativity. [2] Beautiful positive-thoughts energy would then affect their behaviour and influence the positive people that positive loving thoughts will attract

Listen, Discover, Stay Skeptical

On this planet we are all on a learning path as we develop our spiritual awareness. Some people appear to be a tad slow in getting started on the self awareness process, but if we had all learned and developed ourselves spiritually we wouldn't be incarnate here on Earth anyway. We'd be ascended to a fourth dimensional experience some place elsewhere.

We can accelerate our spiritual evolution by listening to spiritual teachers who are farther down the spiritual path than us, but we need to be aware that some people make money from spiritual teaching. Red flags include spiritual sites with advertisements like; 'Expensive rare herbal drink for better meditation', or 'Essential yoga mats now on promotion!'

Advice for all types of buying is; buyer beware!
