"The karmic law
requires that every human wish finds ultimate fulfillment. Non-spiritual desires
are thus the chain that binds man to the wheel of incarnation."
If we attempt to return to a place, it is naturally to assume
that for one reason or another, we have left that place.
We gave up a state of
bliss to experience a state of conflict, one that is essential for soul
growth. Perhaps the reason for this
“fall” cannot be fully comprehended at our level of consciousness, but there is
no doubt that we are living in the world of chaos, a world of the most selfless
good, as well as the most unspeakable evil; a place where profound beauty and
love exist alongside unbearable suffering and torment. We live day to day, triumph
The tragedy part
often makes people doubt the existence of God. How could God allow so much
suffering? How could God hurt people this way? But we know better. We understand that God does not create
suffering, man creates his own suffering.
It is often our most
difficult trials that bring us the greatest good. There is nothing like a good challenge to
built character, but whatever we choose we must choose in the spirit of
self-awareness and change for the better.
Success is a good
thing, but success at the price of the love of our family is not.
Money is a good
thing, but money at the price of our integrity is not.
fears and selfishness have driven us all to hurt others, and the worst damage
comes to ourselves.
Hence, the wheel of
Karma begins to turn, the concept of karma, reflects the universals law of
cause and effect. What comes round goes
round. What you sow, you reap as Sir
Isaac Newton said about it; for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Karma is the mean of
universal balance. When our actions
create an imbalance, we must, at some point in time re-balance that energy. The source of karma imbalance is desire.
Seen through the perspective of Karma, our world suddenly
does not seem so tragic after all. Every
experience is inevitably, and experience is growth, balance and justice.
Crime and punishment
become the most personal experience. Eg. The victimizer harms a victim.
Until we understand Karma, we will realize that the victimizer is the cause of
the harmful action, but we fail to realize that the victim also attracted the
victimizer. On a deeper level, each sought out the other in order to learn a
It is possible to
release ourselves from our karmic ties by raising our awareness. We find our true release when we relinquish
our attachments and give up our will to the divine way. We will always have the will to choose to
learn through karma (the hard way) or to learn through awareness and
release. The wheel must stop somewhere.
When we begin to
connect with our higher selves, we rise above our egos and we rise above
the karmic cycle. We no longer desire
revenge on those who have wronged us, we no longer wrong others by means of our
distorted desire. We choose instead to
desire the one thing that will never diminish us; to live in the loving spirit
When we embrace our inner divinity, we fulfill ourselves, when we fulfill ourselves; we are able to
help fulfill other with our love and support.
