Many in the spiritual community talk about twin flames, soul mates, and karmic relationship. I must confess that I don’t believe relationships or our life partners are fated as these relationship labels indicate. I believe that we have free will to determine what is right for us at a certain time in our lives with the person that feels right for us at that time. This may change as we heal our emotional wounds, grow emotionally and physically, or move from place to place.
What I do believe comes into play in relationships is the concept of karma. My understanding of karma is that we could have created karma with another soul from past lives or we can create karma in our present life. For example, if we have unresolved issues as we may have wronged others or others may have wronged us, this issue must be resolved between the two souls. This happened to me, and the key to resolution is forgiveness without forgetting the past wrong that is the lesson we learned.
The second kind of karma is ones we create in our present lives. Everyone has created negative and positive karma with others. I can safely say that there are no beings who have no karma to resolve that is created in the present. This is particularly true in romantic relationships when we have wronged others meaning that we have deceived, betrayed, or lied to our loved ones over entering into another romantic relationship, such as an extra-marital affair or cheating on our romantic partners.
Many may argue with me about this point. However, no matter how two people try to move on from how this relationship intially began, it will be wrought with problems as it began through deception, betrayal, and lies. This foundation is not sound, and your loved ones will not wholeheartedly support this relationship. I believe this is the karma created through the deception, betrayal and lies to our loved ones.
Karma will stay with our souls from lifetime to lifetime, so we may run but we can’t hide. No amount of our egos’ delusions can change karma. So if you decide to enter into another romantic relationship, make sure you have honestly told your spouse or partner that your relationship with them is over, and is no longer working. Enter the next relationship through honesty and truth so negative karma is not created by this new relationship.
As it is said, life is an echo. What you do and say are reflected right back to you. Do good, and good will return to you! (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
