Karma is a current buzzword and one thing is certain, is that there are good and bad events in our life that are inexplicable.
Yet, in all the theories and history of karma, there is no such thing as luck, only coincidences! We often say, "A stroke of good luck!"
What if it wasn't luck, but karma?
These events repeat themselves over and over again throughout our lives, but is this just a coincidence?
Karma is the result of our past actions and the future of our life. It is a law of knowledge. It is neither rewarding nor punitive, karma is a form of lesson in the evolution of our existence.
From the moment we understand the cause of each of the events that happen to us, we have the possibility to transmute (change) our karma and therefore, change our destiny.
The principle of karma is the law of psycho-spiritual growth involving two conditions: that one is equal and the other opposite to its activity. In summary, karma is a process that ensures the evolution of consciousness.
The above definition may sound familiar, as it can be compared to Newton's Law, a rule used in physics. Physicists like Newton and Einstein had a vast knowledge of physics in the universe and the human relationship with them, but it seems that until now we have ignored this ideology.
Understanding Karma helps us understand the "inexplicable" facts that occur throughout our lives.
Karma is a universal law, it teaches us that for each of our actions, there is a chain reaction. This means that all of our actions have consequences on our life afterwards.
Karma can be used as a signal when something is wrong in our life, just considering an analysis of the facts can allow us to conclude where we are going to fail.
Karma is not about being lucky or being punished, nor is it about a fate that is written for us.
Our life is part of our responsibility, and karma only teaches us that. We are responsible for our own actions and we must stop blaming outside circumstances for our failures. Given this knowledge, we must become aware of the end result of each action.
Newton’s 2 Rules were that a set of different movements equals hidden personal and spiritual growth.
Each body remains in a state of rest or of uniform movement in a straight line, unless it is called upon by an outside force. So it translates to: if you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you've always had.
The rate of change in momentum is proportional to force, and runs in the same direction as force. In conclusion: "God helps those who help themselves."
Here are some quotes from some New Testament passages where we can find phrases that refer to karma:
- Make no mistake: we are not making fun of God.
What a man sows he will also reap. He who sows to his flesh will reap flesh, corruption; but he who sows for the Spirit will reap the everlasting life of the Spirit. Let us not tire of doing good; for we will reap in due time, if we do not relax.
- Let anyone who can understand, understand.
- Listening without hearing, seeing without seeing.
- Let him who has ears hear.
- Anyone who looks at a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
In conclusion, Karma goes beyond all religions, this universal law comes from Hinduism and Buddhist philosophy. These are actions and consequences that have nothing to do with the religions that profess it.
