Live the life your soul wants

Understanding karma

This article is a concise view of understanding karma.

It’s important to accept and face your karma as we all incarnate with unfinished business. The soul incarnates to learn what it may have neglected in the past thus having an agenda each life to learn, experience and step up if it wants to. What you experience in this life may only be chapter one of many lives. You cannot avoid karma, it is the universal law of cause and effect. Karma is the law of the universe and the universe would cease to exist without it.

This is how balance and adjustment is maintained on the planet. We set our karma by every action, word, or thought we make in life. Karma is self-created and everything will go forth according to this law whether it be good or bad depending on what we set in motion.

Many people do not understand karma and look at it from only their own perspective. When a person says karma is going to get the person who wronged me, they fail to recognize that we are responsible for everything that happens to us and that the person would not have been able to do wrong in the first place if this wasn’t karma they created through past action. Every cause has an effect. We do not get to decide what another person’s karma is when they have wronged us.

Karma and reincarnation go hand in hand. You cannot have one without the other which makes is obvious that one single life time is not enough for a soul to learn, develop, and reap the effects of what causes have been set in motion during the lifetime. To understand karma, it is essential to believe in reincarnation.

Karma is either destined or permitted, meaning some things that happen to us are specifically destined to happen, and other things are permitted. There are also things that will not happen to us because karma does not permit them.

It’s true we have karma that can’t be changed. Its best we cooperate as no amount of positive thinking, prayers or affirmations will change this. It’s best to except it as karma and be grateful for what we do have rather than ungrateful for what we don’t have.

There are many types of karma being personal karma, family karma, group karma, money karma, health karma, soul karma, planetary karma and more.

The law of karma comes from a place of love so we can become our greater selves. It’s designed to lift us not pull us down. Without it we could not grow and reach our highest potential.

One of the hardest things to accept as a soul that is evolving is that we have done many terrible things in our lives, and for the sake of sanity we do not remember all these.

The only way we can free ourselves from negative karma is to stop setting up negative causes. You do this by living life more consciously and without doing harm to others. You do this by gaining control of your thoughts, words and actions and live your life in service to others. In other words, you live a life with love and compassion.
