Karma is the memory of our souls, which means it’s often long-standing, even stemming from prior lives. Indeed, the course of our current life is mostly predetermined by earlier lifetimes: what we didn’t finish then we come back to finish now.
Karma is a Buddhist term that refers to the cause and effect principle where a person’s past and present intentions and actions have the ability to influence his or her future destiny. In other words, when your intentions are actions are good, you’re likely to create good karma and future happiness, and vice versa.
Your thoughts, feelings, words and actions are powerful. You have the power to create your future happiness or misery. When you’re loving and kind to others, your karma will certainly return to you in you in the most beautiful way.
Like Newton’s law, ‘every action must have a reaction, when we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly. This returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it. This law of cause and effect is not meant to punish, but is rather for the sake of education or learning. A person may not escape the consequences of his actions, but he will suffer only if he himself has made the conditions ripe for his suffering. Ignorance of the law is no excuse whether the laws are man-made or universal.
Karma, put simply, is the cumulative positive or negative result from your thoughts, actions, and reality creating as that result affects your present reality. Time is an important factor here because the human karmic wave is on a seven-year cycle. Yes, every seven-years.
To stop feeling afraid and start feeling empowered in the worlds of karma and reincarnation. What we didn’t “make right” in our last life will persistently present itself in this one, like an uninvited guest who won’t leave. Unpleasant situations are the consequence of lingering karma, which can always be reversed and resolved. Acknowledge these five properties of past-life karma that still affect you, in order to erase the energy carried over from former lifetimes. Here are the 5 Karmic Laws to guide you:
1. The great law
“As you sow, so shall you reap.” This is the law of cause and effect. If what we want is happiness, peace, love, and friendship, then we should be happy, peaceful, loving and a true friend. What you put out into the universe returns to you.
2. The law of expansion
This law refers to our path in this life. We are all here on Earth to learn. And we reincarnate again and again until we experience all the good and all the bad emotions. If we live a life of learning too little, it creates a karma that forces us to reincarnate and to learn more. The lessons are there for our own spiritual evolution. Every experience improves the quality of your soul.
Life doesn’t just happen. It requires our participation. Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. Be yourself, and surround yourself with what you want to have in your life.
For us to grow in spirit, we must change, and not the people, places or things around us. The only thing we have control over is ourselves. The subsequent action (or inaction) of motive will yield either positive or negative circumstances in our lives. True change only occurs if we make the commitment to change what is in our heart. When we change who and what we are within our hearts, our lives follow suit and change too.
3. The law of balance
Maintaining the balance comes with learning all the lessons in this reincarnation cycle. What you hate the most will you become in your next reincarnation. This lesson will make you understand the thing you hated the most. And this way karma maintains the balance and teaches you a great lesson.
It’s the Yin and yang, my friends. There is balance to everything. Karma sees to it that the darkest darks give way to the brightest lights. Every failure is an opportunity for success, and every success leads us to future failures.
4. The law of connection
Even if something we do seems inconsequential, it is very important that it gets done as everything in the Universe is connected. This means that the first step you made to connect to what your soul is asking for…to the present step…and to the last step, they all become equally important to the completion of each connection. The past, present and future are all connected in the eventual manifestation of your desires.
5. The law of love
This is the last of the Laws of Karma. This brings us to the supreme purpose of karma. This force exists to help us evolve until we reach the divine love. Every experience teaches us to love more and to get closer to the divine.
These are the most important Laws of Karma. They exist to bring the balance in this universe. These laws help us to become a stronger soul with more experiences. If you reincarnated with a karma, there are meditation that can help you to find out what is it. And if you respect these Laws of Karma, then you will be able to escape the reincarnation cycle or to reincarnate with a positive karma. Good luck!
