The Law of Karma

The Law of Karma

Everyone has heard the expression, “What you sow is what you reap.” Karma is both action and the consequences of that action; it is cause and effect simultaneously, because every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind. Get good karma!

Here’s how:

  • Today I will witness the choices I make in each moment. And in the mere witnessing of these choices, I will bring them to my conscious awareness. I will know that the best way to prepare for any moment in the future is to be fully conscious in the present.
  • Whenever I make a choice, I will ask myself two questions: “What are the consequences of this choice that I’m making?” and “Will this choice bring fulfillment and happiness to me and also to those who are affected by this choice?”
  • I will then ask my heart for guidance and be guided by its message of comfort or discomfort. If the choice feels comfortable, I will plunge ahead with abandon. If the choice feels uncomfortable, I will pause and see the consequences of my action with my inner vision. This guidance will enable me to make spontaneously correct choices for myself and for all those around me.

I am concerned that those who rape, those who abuse torture animals wont get punished by law of karma cause it is just animals. it is so wrong. In this world men has all rights, they can torture, rape get away with it. so sick. it wouldnt surprise me if they got away with karma as well.

What one focuses on is what one attracts into one's life. My lesson is to send love and light to those who cause pain rather than to dwell on the awfullness of their behavior. Imagine the change we could bring if we all did this!

Thank you. I am a firm believer in the Law of Karma and I am ready to get off the "wheel" and ascend.

I do truly believe in "Karma". I have actually witnessed it firsthand!! I believe that whatever you put forth out into this world,it will come back to you in some form or another. About five years ago,I had what people call,a,NDS.(near death experience). I actually did die.I could actually feel my "spirit" actualy leaving my body! Now,I cant say that this was an unpleasant experience,because the feelings the I was having were so awesome! I did actually welcome my bodily demise..i had such a great,warm,loving,and really kind of un-explainable experience,that it really makes it very hard to put it into words.I do remember EVERYTHING that was happening;simultaneously,with my physical body and also my spirit or soul..whichever term that you like. I did not want to come back !Not at all!! I was so upset when the paramedics brought me back,i remember being very mad about that! I know that it sounds crazy,but it WAS real! So,these days,I do not fear death,and when loved ones pass away,I miss them,but,I do really know that they are in a MUCH,MUCH better place and I am happy for them!! People can mistake this as being,cold or uncaring,but they just do not understand!! BUT,..they will one day!!! They really will!!!

What goes around comes around. What you sow, so shall you reap. What you put forth will come back to you. Cause and Effect! Some even say 7 fold.

I learned these simple things about Karma, but then I learned something else - to add on to Cause and Effect does so 3 ways.

When you send out bad karma - hurting someone - will come back to you 3 fold.

1. Mentally - you will constantly think on the thing that hurt and you will experience fear, repercussion, and possibly disturbing reoccurring dreams. Have you ever played a moment over and over in your mind - making you doubt your decision?

2. Physically - will have a physical effect on you - could even make you ill, your eating habits could grow worse, you may even have problems sleeping, or working.

3. Spiritually - in time, you are so bothered by the event, you find yourself spiraling out of control - emotions and personal doubts will tear at you aren't sure which way is up, and your spiritual path of life is thrown out of kilter.

A year ago, a "friend" said something, publicly, and I'm still reeling over it to this day. It has bothered me ever since. So what do I do? Others are looking at me like its my fault, maybe I should apologize. But how does one apologize when it isn't that one's fault??? And even if the other person apologized, would it be sincere since that person is a drunk?
