Undoubtedly you've heard the concept of karma. The word's been around a while, like since 1500 B.C. or so.
You might automatically think karma’s a bitch when something awful happens to someone who did something awful.
Or maybe you jokingly blame karma for your bad luck or inability to succeed at something. Oh well, must be my bad karma, you sigh in resignation, but don't think much deeper about it.
Taking some of the negative connotations off, the word karma literally means a result from a prior action. Karma is Einstein's law of physics, stating that for every action there is an opposite yet equal re-action. It's the Bible's reminder of an eye-for-an-eye.
Karma demonstrates that the Universe is operating from an orderly place, proving there are no accidents or coincidences. It's the ripple effect from the stone thrown into a lake, even if you don't see who threw it or why.
Since karma is just an effect, it shows up in positive ways from positive actions, negative ways from actions causing harm or loss.
Even though karma states that there are no effects without prior causes, most of the time, choosing to see life in such a simple way, is pretty scary for many. It would mean you'd have to take full responsibility for everything in your life. Sitting in the why-me victim place is far more comfortable to your primitive consciousness. Yucky but comfy.
Here's a goofy-accurate way to understand the order of karma: Karma is the chewing gum you step in after you 'forget' you threw it on the ground, then getting angry at the jerk who threw it there!
In other words, you spit out the gum, conveniently forget you did, then feel victimized and angry at the "perpetrator" rather than taking responsibility. It happens like that. All. The. Time.
Karma is the effect you attract after doing something you believe caused pain or loss. Frequently it happens instantly, as John Lennon sang, or it can take a while. Or lifetimes.
Seeing it often depends on how aware you are, plus the willingness to admit what you did to attract it. It's admitting you threw the gum on the ground.
Here's a karma rule of thumb: The more you feel victimized by something that happened, (not remembering or admitting what you did to attract it), the more dramatic and more frequent karma arrives.
Until you finally wake up and take responsibility.
The easiest way to tell if something is karma is to notice your reaction. If you get upset at what happened you can bet you’re the one who threw that gum on the ground. And "forgot."
Karma is the natural law that shows everything is always trying to balance out in the universe. You attract karma as a way to repay the “debt” you feel you caused by experiencing a loss of some kind to balance it out.
On a spiritual level. karma is always your Higher Consciousness choice from an internal sense of what will be sufficient “repayment” for what you “took.” That part of you lets you know when it’s balanced. How? The effects stop arriving.
Karma is a gift
Growth is seeing karma not as punishment, but rather a wake-up call to assist you in remembering what you did that needs balancing out. Remembering that, yes, it was you that threw the gum on the ground.
Rather than spending time being angry at what you attracted, accept it and be grateful for the opportunity to clean something up you "forgot" about.
Karma shows up at the perfect moment, according to your spiritual readiness timetable. In other words, you’re never given more than you can handle, just the exact amount and the perfect way that will awaken you if you allow it to.
Even if you aren't sure what you did to cause the imbalance, having the intention to balance out karma is a powerful way to live. In other words, pick up gum whenever you notice some on the ground!
You're the only one who knows when your karma is complete, but remember this: You can’t fool the Universe. __________________________________________________________________________________________
