The Root of All Karma


 
 
 
 
 
 
The root of all karma is seeded in the four great passions. One of these passions is more intense in your life than the others; but they all appear at one time or another. The four great passions which are the major causes of all of life’s problems are:

1.     Deceit

2.     Greed

3.     Anger

4.     Pride

These states, which lack honesty, tolerance, unselfishness and humility, are the triggering mechanisms for all karma. They also include a lack sincerity, fairness, joy, admiration, detachment and courage. These give rise to prejudice, sorrow, disloyalty, fear, disgust and cruel joking which will activate karma and get us into trouble. 

 

Deceit to most of us means to lie or not tell the truth. But deceit is also the ability to live in ignorance and denial. Blaming others or the nature of our present and past existence is a form of deceit. We lack the awareness to face ourselves with honesty. In each of us is a small voice that always speaks the truth. Because we do not wish to hear it, we create diversions. When the voice comes up we suppress it because to face the negativity of our being fills us with fear.

 

Greed -. No one likes to think of him or her as being greedy and yet each of us on some level has been consumed by greed. When we think of greed we usually think of avarice or excessive hoarding of money and material things.  Greed is really fixation upon objects of sensory pleasure and gratification.

 

 

Anger is probably a passion with which we can all identify. It is something we have all experienced. Although no one likes to be an angry person it is somewhat easier to admit this passion than the other three passions. Perhaps that is because anger is seen as a worthy passion if it is used to right an injustice.

 

Pride . Pride is insecurity and fear turned outward in an act of defiance. It is a false sense of self-acceptance, a high opinion of self, a feeling of superiority.

 Karma means work - Let’s begin our work.

 

When we understand the laws of karma we realize that the inner voice is simply a cause that brings an effect and it is not a retribution or message of our badness. In an objective state we realize that it is simply the lesson we have come to learn.

 

Remember, to lighten or soften our karma (aura) we need to manifest certain actions and inhibit others. The practice of yoga (physical) helps us to learn to become motionless and balanced without losing consciousness. This is how we annihilate karma, being balanced and serene while holding onto awareness. This is known as our witnessing consciousness; the observing principle of life.

The Four Patterns of Karma


 
 
The reason for studying karma is to be able to soften and thus change your karma. But without knowledge it is impossible to find meaning, direction and ultimate happiness. According to karma ignorance is the source of all suffering and this suffering is the result of the four patterns of karma that obscure or conceal the truth. Once the truth is revealed we have the ability to transcend our karma.
 








The first is the karma that blocks knowledge. Our knowledge of the world comes about through the five senses. When knowledge is blocked one cannot see the subtle connection between things and events. It is like the person who is emotionally cruel to their partner and cannot understand why the partner is cold.

The second is the karma that blocks feelings of joy and grief, pleasure and pain. Simply this means that you cannot separate the opposing forces of nature. We cannot remove night from day. They both exist as a reflection of the other. Every experience in life can be seen as pleasurable or painful depending upon how we interpret things. A mosquito bites and you feel the pain of the itch. You scratch the itch and feel the pleasure in scratching. Same bite bringing both pain and pleasure.

The third karma is longevity or life span. The theory of karma states that the longer you live the more experiences you have, the greater your knowledge and so the wiser you become. The length of your life is one thing, but the vitality of your life is another. The vitality you have now is a direct result of the last life. Be tremendously enthusiastic about life now and it will affect this life, as well as the next life. The karma affecting your next life is formed during the last 48 minutes of this incarnation.

The fourth karma is that which hinders your will power. When this kind of karma is operating it makes us incapable of doing even the simplest of things. Negative thoughts grow and become more negative, more emotional and more dangerous. This develops into anxiety, fear, anger and even hostility. Finally it breaks out into self-destructive actions. When you lose the ability to harness your will power many complications will arise in your life.

Master lack of knowledge, blocked feelings, unhealthy lifestyle and inability to harness your free will and you will have the tools to work through your karma.

Your karma comes in percentages.


 
 
 
 
 

Karma particles come into our lives in percentages and these percentages have a great influence on the nature of our lives.

1.     The smallest percentage of karma relates to the length of your life. No matter what you do, negative or positive, this karma determines the length of your life. The percentage is 5 percent. This is an interesting concept as we can see that the length of our life is not nearly as important as the nature of our life.

2.     Name and fame equal 6 percent. Each is an equal 3 percent, so your name and the level of notoriety are 6 percent of your reason for being in this reincarnation.

3.     The karma that determines your individuality equals 8 percent, and the karma that determines your family and family origin is another 8 percent for a total of 16 percent.

4.      The karma of knowledge, happiness, and awareness each equal 12 percent for a total of 36 percent. Remember, negative karma can block happiness (12 percent of your being) just as it can hinder knowledge and the ability to see things as they truly are.

5.     Belief and conduct each make up 9 ½ percent of your karma for a total of 19 percent

6.     The karma of joy equals 18 percent. The greatest amount of negative karma goes into prohibiting the expression of joy.

 

Let’s begin our yoga practice and see if we can find a little joy today.

 

 

Your Karma comes to you in percentages. What this means is that your karma is divided into percentages and these percentages rule different areas of your life. We cannot change our individuality or our family of origin, but we can change the other 84 %; name and fame, knowledge, happiness and awareness, beliefs and conduct, and the expression of joy.   We have chosen to return to a particular family as a particular individual for the completion of our lessons. Using these percentages we can see ways to improve our lives and thus find joy.

How to Change Your Karma


 
 
 
There are eight types of karma or causes we encounter in our lifetime that affect the outcome of our lives. Our attitudes, the events in our lives, time gates, reciprocity, generating, supporting, counteractive and destructive energy affect the quality of our lives. Each of these forms of energy affects our lives in either positive or negative ways.  How we see the world, what we do and how we react determines the structure and nature of our lives.
 


To overcome a piece of karma, or to implement a lasting change we need to lock to our cellular structure a change in energy.  Karma yoga teaches that it takes 120 days to overcome a piece of karma. Modern science tells us that new red blood cells regenerate about every 120 days. So most likely it would take about 120 days to lock into your cellular memory something that you would like to change.

Our emotions are energy impressions embedded into the protein structure of our cells. Our body is constantly building up and breaking down these protein structures. Any emotional energy stored in your cells will be regenerated into new cells. The question then becomes, how do we best implant new energy memory into the cells? Let’s start with our yoga practice.

 

How do we best implant new energy memory into the cells?  Karma teaches us that the best way to learn a lesson and implement change is through awareness, meditation, contemplation, reflection, and vicarious learning. By observing and consciously becoming aware of the karma we are attempting to change, we can and will learn the lesson. Karma tells us that if the lesson has been truly learned (change has been made) a space opens and we then have a greater opportunity to manifest free will. We become the masters of our own destiny and this leads to prosperity.

What are our deepest karmic desires?










Because life is simply cause and effect, our energy causes our thoughts to materialize. Our thoughts then take on emotional qualities. How we manifest these thoughts create the form and function of our lives. Remember that energy is carried forward from our past lives and is brought into this life, not as a punishment or reward, but as a means of presenting us with the quickest way to learn our karmic lesson. The question then becomes; what is our lesson?

Before we can discover the lesson we have come here to learn, we must reincarnate. According to karma, in the last forty-eight minutes of your last life you had desires. These desires must then be realized again through your next life. As we depart this earth we leave behind our bodies and our earthly senses. The soul cannot experience earthly desires without the help of the body and the senses so it chooses to return. These desires may be of an addictive nature, which means that the addiction, drama, and negativity will intensify in the next lifetime.

 

There are three forces of karma enticing us to return for another lifetime experience.

1.      Our deepest wish (desire) is to be free of all karma and therefore we return to annihilate all karma

2.      Our desire to taste (experience) the things we tasted in a previous life. These are the cravings and desires of the flesh

3.      The desire to taste (experience) things we never tasted before.

 

According to karma, we leave this world with unfinished business. Our holdover place is somewhat like heaven. It is not the final resting place, but simply a place to reflect. When the time is right we make the decision to return to another life in an attempt to fulfill our karma. The soul does not possess human senses and thus must return to earth in human form to experience the desires of this lifetime. We choose the nature of our birth and the structure of our lives as the most expedient experience to teach us our karmic lesson. This does not mean we accomplish our mission in this lifetime or the next. We keep trying until we get it right. A lifetime, according to karma is simply a blink of time in the universe. So, according to karma, we are eternal and infinite like the energy of the universe and therefore have many lifetimes to gather the wisdom we seek. Choose wisely and you will discover liberation; the freedom to be at peace.

What is the Karma of Life?









There are eight types of karma we encounter in our lifetime. The first is attitudinal karma. All karmic events are processed through the attitudes we carry. Our attitudes determine the outcome of our experiences and our lives. The second is event karma. Certain events happen in the course of our lives that create change. Marriages, birth of children, divorce, death of loved one, change in job and other earthly events that help to shape our lives. The third is time gates. We have all had experiences or known someone whose life has suddenly taken a drastic change. Like the starving young actor who suddenly gets a break and his whole life changes. It is said this person has passed through a time gate. Time gates are everywhere and due to our attitudes we can often walk right by an opportunity. The fourth is reciprocity. We reap what we sow and so what we give out into the world comes back to us. The fifth is generating. We are constantly generating karma by our actions. It will either manifest in this lifetime or the next. The sixth is supportive karma. This is the action we perform that supports karmic change. An example would be counseling or taking this soul walk. The seventh is counteractive karma or doing things that are counter to the karma we are trying to work out. This is when we know we should be acting in one way, but act in another and thus create self-sabotaging actions. The eighth is destructive karma. This of course is action that we take that deepens our karma or adds destructive consequences to our lives. A life of crime or drug addiction would be destructive examples.

To work though or overcome karma we need to be able to stay balanced in the face of adversity, stay flexible enough to weather change and strong enough to be grounded compassion over righteousness.

Karma teaches us that the best way to learn a lesson and implement change is through awareness, meditation, contemplation, reflection, and vicarious learning. By observing and consciously becoming aware of the karma we are attempting to change, we can and will learn the lesson. Karma tells us that if the lesson has been truly learned (change has been made) a space opens and we then have a greater opportunity to manifest free will. We become the masters of our own destiny and this leads to prosperity.

The Karma You Carry


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Basically we have three tanks or holders of karma that we carry with us:

1.      the total tank of all your karma

2.      the karma you brought into this life

3.      the karma you are creating in this lifetime.

 

Before we can discover the lesson we have come here to learn, we must reincarnate. According to karma, in the last forty-eight minutes of your last life you had desires. These desires must then be realized again through this your next life. As we depart this earth we leave behind our bodies and our earthly senses. The soul cannot experience these desires without the help of the body and the senses so it chooses to return. These desires may be of an addictive nature, which means that the addiction, the drama, and the negativity will intensify in this and all the lifetimes to come unless we annihilate it. And to do that we will need to find emotional and physical balance, be flexible and open, remain strong and focused, and be aware of the nature of life; it is simply cause and effect. Let’s get to work.

 

There is also a special karma you create in this lifetime that will annihilate karma from the past, as well as in this lifetime and in future lifetimes.  Just remember karma is not retribution. It is an emotional and mental impetus from the past and that past could be one minute ago or many lifetimes ago.  Be on the lookout for this special karma. It will help you to prosper. What is it? Look for opportunities to practice kindness and you will discover it.

Karma ~Everything Gets Balanced


 
 
 
 
If a person comes into this life able to sing, play an instrument, draw a picture without any effort, or easily undertakes any task, according to the laws of karma, he or she probably began the endeavor in a previous life. Therefore the doctrine of karma states that nothing in life comes instantaneously. Everything is the result of a long learning process.

Karma upholds the law of universal justice in that it answers the question; why me? Why was I born poor when others were born rich, or why are some born with physical and mental hardships while others easily move through the world? Why does a plane crash someone lives while other die? Where is there justice in the world? There is no such thing as justice. That’s why we need laws.  The law of Karma states there are no reward and punishment. Life is simply cause and effect. We are here to learn this valuable lesson. Life becomes what life does.

 

Before we are born we choose the circumstances in which we have the greatest opportunity to discover the nature of our earthly mission; what we are here to learn. To learn we must seek knowledge and then turn that knowledge into wisdom.  Be aware that karma is the way of action and every action (cause) has its effect. The universe is a perfect accounting system. Everything gets balanced. Be mindful and choose wisely.

What is Karma?


Sometimes in life it is better to define something by what it is not. That is probably the best way to understand karma. In our western world we often hear karma referred to as good or bad. Karma is not about judgment. Judgment is really a very subjective impression. Good and bad signify punishment or retribution if a deed is not morally correct. But, morally correct is also a subjective impression. Karma is not the impressions, but rather the result of certain actions.  Karma therefore is not about punishment or rewards, but simply the energy of cause and effect.

 

 
 
Essentially, the laws of karma state that every action, thought, word, or deed produces a physical or mental effect. It also produces an invisible intention or inclination. This proclivity is stored in your soul (the memory track of your spirit). Everything that we do, say, or think, affects us on all planes; body, mind, and soul.

 

Because the invisible effects of our actions are stored in our souls, they endure beyond our earth life, maintaining the potential to be energized in future lives. According to karma, the soul chooses the nature of its earthly experience based upon the desire to present itself with the potential to work through a piece or pieces of karma.

 

Karma is present energy that, under certain conditions, changes from invisible to visible form. We look upon these manifestations as either rewarding or punishing when in fact they are simply results of past actions and attitudes. Basically life becomes what life does.

 

All creation is the result of energy. The process of creation is change. So remember everything that happens is the result of past action, whether it happened a minute ago or lifetimes ago. Karma is a result of the past. Choose wisely.
