Recently, I have been contemplating our creation of karma for our soul lives. There are 12 Laws of Karma that affect our lives as described in the link provided. I have observed and been adversely affected by many who I encountered through my soul lives. I have dated them, worked for them, and lived with them. As a result of these adverse treatments, I too have reacted adversely to these behaviors and actions against me upon which I now must reflect and change.
Karma is not instantaneous as our actions may come back to us many years later. I have worked for a person who threatened and injured people for 11 years before she finally was terminated from her employment. Her actions during these 11 years caused many to leave the institution and put people in great fear. I have observed others in the course of their behaviors and actions break up families and marriages to be together. I then observed divorces initiated by their injured spouses who endured this infidelity for many years. As a result of these divorces, these individuals have suffered financially, emotionally, and physically.
“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 punishment, but is wholly 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.”
If we do not accept responsibility for our actions and behaviors, but continue to blame others for our plights and misfortunes, our past will simply repeat itself. I have highlighted five of the 12 Laws of Karma to illustrate this point.
“THE LAW OF CREATION – Life doesn’t just HAPPEN, it requires our participation. – We are one with the Universe, both inside and out. – Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. – BE yourself, and surround yourself with what you want to have present in your Life.
THE LAW OF HUMILITY – What you refuse to accept, will continue for you. – If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.
THE LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY – Whenever there is something wrong in my life, there is something wrong in me. – We mirror what surrounds us – and what surrounds us mirrors us; this is a Universal Truth. – We must take responsibility what is in our life.
THE LAW OF GIVING AND HOSPITALITY – If you believe something to be true,then sometime in your life you will be called upon to demonstrate that particular truth. – Here is where we put what we CLAIM that we have learned, into actual PRACTICE.
THE LAW OF CHANGE – History repeats itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.”
The lessons taken away from the 12 Laws of Karma is to face our own behaviors and actions, take responsibilities for them and accepts these actions as our own, and put into practice what we claim we have learned to change our future path.
