You may escape the law, but not your karma

How many of you believe in the law of karma ?

Quote:
We reap what we sow. If things do not catch up with us in this lifetime, rest assured they would do so, in another Karma has become a well-used word these days, but how many people take time to understand and remember it?

The first step to change is to understand karma. Any good you do in this lifetime will come back to you. If you are spiritually attuned, the good will return to you in this life If not, then you will experience good in the next life. Thought is also energy – be very careful about negative thoughts and whom you project them onto! Think before you do something mean to someone else, even when they have done something mean to you! It could become a continual circle that you and the other person get stuck in, for many lifetimes.

The saying ‘turn the other cheek’ begins to have a real energetic meaning. So, in fact, if someone does something negative to you, do not react but let it go so that it remains their karma and does not become part of yours. Cause and Effect is related to karma as it means the consequences of our actions. We all want positive karma, not negative, and the same rules apply – so it is essential that we think and act in a good way. All actions and thoughts create energy, and energy fields surround all things including our selves.

Another name of our energy field is the aura. Both positive and negative energy stays in our auras and travels with us from one life to another. If you think you have got away with something bad, say a murder or hurting someone – wait! It will come back to you and the same will be done to you! Ah! You cannot get away from karma; you may escape the law of the land, yes, but not your karma. We all have choices, deciding which path to follow and the lessons we wish to learn. No one is squeaky clean. Negative energy is something we all try to avoid, and we certainly don’t want it lingering in our auras, lifetime after lifetime.

There is a saying: ‘what angers you, controls you’. Anger is a dark red colour in the aura, and can make the aura feel heavy and dull, but at the same time very spiky. Anger causes many dramas and can stop you from moving forward. Another big negative energy is fear It is like a heavy grey cloud that sits in the aura and can manifest at many levels. Some people live in constant fear, which prevents them from enjoying life. Fear can hold you back from all you ever want, and prevent you from finding true happiness.

Our worst fear has been that of death and dying, but we never die, we just move on to other lives, perhaps repeating lessons we got wrong or never finished. Some people touch on their past lives by accident or experience them on a regular basis. Letting go of fear can change your whole outlook on life, and the nature of your relationships. To not forgive is another big negative energy. A good place to start is to start forgiving others. Just imagine negative energies as dark, heavy colours, and positive energies as light, bright colours in our auras – which would you prefer? We all display our karma in our auras, and hopefully we get it cleared by making the right choices.

Re: You may escape the law, but not your karma

While one can consider karma as energy, such an explanation while correct is conceptually incomplete. When one does any deed, good or bad or intended or by accident, the impact of his deeds on the universe and then the consequences reciprocating on himself must be measured as an aspect of quality rather than quantity. This is the danger of comparing Karma with Energy. Energy is a quantifiable element, but Karma is however more a qualitative one.

We cannot ever quantify karma precisely because it is both subjective and objective at the same time. i.e Karma is subjective when it comes to yours own. But you cannot objectively measure another person's karma correctly.

Example : A billionaire or his son is looked upon as a tremendously lucky man by everyone. But inwardly he is very unhappy and unsatisfied with his life maybe due to personal or professional factors and he commits suicide. This must have happened a million times already in real life. Here we tried to objectively measure this billionaire's karma, but we were seriously wrong because no matter how rich that man was, he lived in a personal hell. Perhaps it is possible he would have been far happier as a poor or middle class man.

Karma cannot be predicted precisely again, this happens because of the cyclical nature of this universe. Good follows bad and bad follows good forever, so any action we do or not do has far reaching consequences even beyond what we can imagine or think.

Example : A great King renounced War and embraced peace. His subjects grow decadent and soon the region is conquered by barbarians.

Example : Adolf Hitler preached hatred against jews and non whites. He killed six million jews and in world war 2 perished himself. The legacy of his evil ensured that racism is no longer acceptable in the civilized world.

Note both the examples above. See how Karma plays the most mysterious game in this universe. The great King performed the typical good deed, yet bought evil on his people. The evil dictator performed the typical bad deed, bought about a world war, but the world has been a better place for it. Now I'm not saying the Great King was a bad man and Hitler was a good man, that would be madness. All I say that Karma of anything is one thing in this universe which will never remain constant across time and space.

An act will be considered evil now and doer a villain, but again the same thing might be considered good a century from now and then a century after that be considered evil again. Note this is not dependent on perception of a 'karmic event.' Thanks to the continuously evolving universe, the same even t in its place in history really does affect the world in different ways during different times until it is forgotten.

Karma cannot be even quantified in terms of simple numbers. For example : If one doctor cures 100 sick people in one day and another doctor cures just one man. Which doctor's has better karma at the end of the day? We can never tell. What if all the 100 sick people who got cured by the first doctor were a band of dacoits? What if the one guy the second doctor cured saves the world someday? So whose Karma was ultimately bigger at the end of the today. The answer is we will never know.

One thing I know, Karma is a bitch for me right now. I will tell it later.

Re: You may escape the law, but not your karma

The meaning of karma is very tricky
A baby born with deformity has done nothing wrong but people label it as past birth karma.A child goes thru a tough time, its either his parents karma or his past birth karma.

I always question people talking about karma if you are being punished for your past birth sins let the person atleast have some memory of his past birth so that he lives this birth in a good way and have a good life in his next birth.
