7 Things You Need to Know to Master Your Karma

No more fearing Karma, it’s time to start working with it!

Karma is misunderstood more often than appreciated. Simply because the information spread about this Universal-governing law is usually half-baked.

So, here’s my attempt to redefine your perception and hopefully help you develop a high regard for this mystical law.

#1 – Clear your debt with grace.

Any hardships are not the time for you to ask “why is this happening to me”. Instead, start seeing problems as your opportunity to clear your Karmic Debt rapidly. If you’re asking for God to ‘slow down’ on you, it’s like saying you want the band-aid to be ripped off slower and with longer-lasting pain.

Paper, Low, Photoshop, Rip

#2 –You can’t be ‘jinxed’ out of something you deserve.

I want to emphasise on the fact that you need to trust your own destiny, the rewards you will be reaping, and free yourself of superstitious ideas of jinxing. Worst comes, something you deserve will be delayed, but it will be rerouted to you, and never deprived.

#3 – Karma isn’t always the bad guy. It is infact, absolutely unbiased and balanced. Set yourself free from this myth.

I’ve said this before when talking about the Divine Laws of the Universe, and I say it again. Karma is a neutral law.

Yin And Yang, Fire, Water, Hand

We, as humans, are the ones that make it seem good or bad. But the truth is, you get what you deserve, and that’s THAT.

The Universe doesn’t indulge in favouritism, doing more good for one soul, and worse for another. So, you won’t get any more troubles than you deserve, and you won’t get more happiness than you deserve either. If you keep holding onto the fear of Karma, you can never work with it.

#4 – Fill every moment from NOW-on with good Karma.

EVERYTHING you do in the present, is always building for your future. And if you can do good enough in the present, you don’t need to worry about the future, because you’ll start to override the consequences of your past too!

Grass, Pavement, Brick, Poetry, Stone

#5 – Don’t try to even the score, chances are you’ll make it worse.

We are already assigned Spiritual contracts (if you are curious to know what that is, read this) with the people around us, and we have debts to clear with them. Anything that is happening to you is either this person clearing their debt to you, OR them creating their own hard fate for the future.

DON’T GET INVOLVED.

Get out of toxic relations or limit yourself from people that bring out the worst in you, but do NOT take Karma in your own hands.

#6 – Don’t wait for Karma to hit somebody.

While we’re talking about getting even, let’s also talk about wasting our time wondering when we’ll get to sing ‘what goes around comes back around’ to our misdoer.

Concert, Singer, Singing, Stage, Lights

It all comes crashing down some day, but while you’re policing it, the law will not be set into motion. You have to EXIT that loop, that confining energy, for the law to generate the ‘bill of debts due’ in this ‘transaction’.

#7 – If you want big Karmic changes, take big steps.

Instead of fearing or succumbing to the law, WORK WITH IT.
Go all-out on taking control of your present moment actions. Don’t act from a small place, it won’t bring results fast enough. Afterall, the harder you spin the wheel, the faster it will go.

Steel Wool, Fire, Sparks, Cirle

Karma can you teach you detachment, acceptance, present moment awareness and help you connect the dots over, and over again. It may not make sense in the moment, but in retrospect, everything will always be more appreciable.

If you can see yourself as a student of this law, the more practical and useful it will be in consciously transcending the many nuances of life!

God-Fearing or God-Loving?

Is God Evil? Is there Hell? What does Karma really mean? Why shouldn’t we ‘expect anything from anyone’? And other ideas to reflect on. Check this post out!

There are a couple of concepts that us humans have gotten wrong about ‘God’, which is perhaps why we have as many atheists as we do!

I’ll start with the number one psychology of “Fearing God”.

Whenever anyone does something wrong, the Indian proverb goes, “atleast be scared of God”. Which implies that even if you’re not scared of the implications of your actions while living in the world you’re in right now, you need to be scared of some God sitting upstairs in Heaven, possibly writing your receipt to Hell.

Stamp, Excuse Me, Excuse, Relief, White Lie

What’s the flaw in that, you ask?

There are many theories about the proof of heaven, I’m not going to go into that (atleast this time). But I am going to talk about Hell.

Many people that believe in the law of cause and effect find their peace in the consolation that “karma will bite back”. And thus, we end up monitoring the wrong-doers life for a long time after the wrong-doing happened, to see if they’re miserable and regretful yet. We can’t stand seeing someone happy, if that’s not our final experience from them.

Karma does come back to get everyone. But our idea of when, is a little off.

Ofcourse you’ll question its existence if it isn’t making itself visible to you. And ofcourse many people try to console themselves further by believing that it’ll happen in the ‘afterlife’, or you’ll go to hell, etc. That sounds off to me. Here’s why.

I like to look at Karma as finishing off what you started.

Which means, that if you started an action on Earth, you need to be here to complete it. So in a way, your receipt to hell is just another round-trip to Earth with a more complicated life, harder lessons to learn.

Sounds less vicious, eh? So many times, we’re projected the image of a devil standing at the gate of doom, with blazing fire and screams. Not to break your agonising bubble, but what would that even teach you? It’s nothing but a false, dramatic and over-exaggerated notion of the true essence of Karma.

Hell, Demons, Devil, Evil, Fantasy, Monster

As much as you’d like to believe that God is vengeful, because that’s how we see humans on Earth, God is the personification of Ultimate Justice in the Universe. In other words, God, Justice and Karma are all synonymous.

NOTE : God isn’t really a person sitting in white clothes, ‘up there’. But more on that some other time.

And Karma isn’t about punishment. That’s just a fear-mongering way to look at it. It’s a very simple law – every action has an equal and opposite reaction. You do good – it comes back to you. You do bad – it also comes back to you.

The reason that this law doesn’t always seem true is for multiple reasons:

  • Karma isn’t always instantaneous. Or atleast doesn’t seem so to us. A change of heart sometimes takes ages. And until the person really doesn’t get the importance of their actions, they will keep repeating their behaviour – which means more Karma for them! And in turn, a heavier learning curve in the manifestation. Whether you as the reader believe it or not – sometimes our Karma carries over to another lifetime when left undealt.
  • Karma doesn’t necessarily came through the same door it went out of. For example, if you did good for someone, you can’t expect that they’ll be the one returning the favour. Which is perhaps why the saying goes “don’t expect anything from anyone”. It’s not to break your heart, don’t worry, the universe will always compensate for the good you deserve. Just don’t expect to know how it comes to you!

    NOTE : This is called the law of Divine Compensation, one of the 10 Divine Laws of the Universe.
Door, Open, Doorway, Entrance
  • Same goes for doing bad. Let’s say you’re mistreating somebody. It is their lesson to learn how to stand up for themselves, doesn’t mean you won’t pay back. It certainly doesn’t help you, to keep feeding your own power by victimising other people. Sure – they may never stand up to you, but you will have someone giving you a taste of your own medicine.

Given the simplicity with which the law works, visiting this haunted land of unceasing fire doesn’t make much sense. Our Heaven and Hell are all on this planet – it’s all in our mind’s experience.

It’s more practical to be here, reap what we sow, to finish what we started.

All that being said, why would you fear God? Isn’t it marvellous that something so fool-proof has been designed for us? That our spiritual learning is always under surveillance?

Taxes, Tax Evasion, Police, Handcuffs

Essentially, life is about understanding the consequences of our actions through the experiences we have. Some like to call them ‘lessons’. And, once you have learned the lesson, you don’t need to suffer endlessly, there is always GRACE. RESPITE.

The Universe is kind, and that there’s a special place in Heaven for those that are consciously clearing their Karma. It moves with you when you take action for your betterment, it works for you. When your lessons are learned, you are supported in moving forward to a better reality. To your own Heaven on Earth.

If you’re ready to actively start clearing out this Karma, this crucial post is what you need next! 🙂

How Many Favors Should You Ask For, From God?

Is God biased? Is there such a thing as asking for too many favors? Introspecting on man’s relationship with the Divine.

I often wonder.

Why would the Creator, the Universe, the Divine, ‘God’, who has access to everything and needs nothing that we can offer (because He IS everything) not give you what you want? What would God do by keeping everything good for Himself?

Note : I’m not declaring a gender for God, but I’m in no mood to write He/She everytime I make a reference, so let’s use He.

Is it even God, if He is some kind of sadist who enjoys seeing us ‘begging for mercy’?

“God’s grace is only invoked through prayers, rituals, sacrifices, lighting candles, etc.”

What about the atheists? I know a few, and they don’t look miserable. God hasn’t even punished them yet, for being so bold and declaring God is non-existent.

And think of this. We’ve all met someone we can call the ‘most selfless person ever’. Then considering that God is the combination of all the highest qualities everyone has, including selflessness, does it even make sense that God would only give you something when you worship and please Her/Him with intense sacrificial rituals?

What would God get with all that glorification – who is He even competing against to prove his glory? Does God even need validation, could God be insecure?

“God needs to help other people, so maybe today’s not our turn.”

But if it’s God, if it’s the Universe, if it’s the Divine, then this is an omnipresent soul. Then there shouldn’t be a Round-Robin service, I think it should be ’round-the-clock!

But what if God gets ‘fed-up’?

Is there really a limit on how much God will do for you before He decides He’s done enough? That you’re a lost cause, and He runs off abandoning you, leaving you against this cold, heartless world, to look after yourself? What happens to such people – do they get thrown out of the Universe?

If It Isn’t God – What Stops Us from Taking Help?

It is ego that says “I am INDEPENDENT. I will do this all by myself”.

There are people that claim they’ve never asked God for anything! There’s another growing trend of people calling themselves ‘SELF-MADE’.

So then I wonder, how much of a self-made person are you, really?

Do you harvest your own food? Stitch your own clothes from the cotton growing in your backyard? Grow your own trees for the all your well-carved furniture? You know where I’m going with this.

You see – no matter how hard you try, you cannot be a self-sufficient ecosystem. We were never made to do unnecessary heavy-lifting, we are here to come together with our unique qualities and simply help each other grow towards our Oneness with the Universe.

By being ‘self-sufficient’ and never asking for help, who are we even trying to prove a point to?

I am not preaching here, because I came from the same mindset of self-sufficiency. And it was this huge blockage that disconnected me. After all, I was saying I am separate, and therefore I must take care of myself separately. How can such a person experience Oneness?

And finally, if you can get help and make your life move faster, why aren’t you doing that?

*Ba Dum Tss*

So What Now?

If you are looking for some comfort after having your perspective a little rattled, you should know that we are always, constantly being helped and looked after. But because things are manifesting behind the scenes, instead of counting our blessings, we’re usually questioning its occurrence at all.

The Universe is NOT beating a drum for you, every time it helps. Would you have preferred that instead? Would have been kind of annoying, honestly. We must admire it working in a wondrous silence.

fantasy-2925250_1920.jpg
But then there are moments in life, when we are met by Divine Intervention. We know in that moment, “this couldn’t have been by chance, this wasn’t ME. This was something much bigger, more powerful”.

 

In retrospect, we can always agree that things worked out for the best. Why? Simply because things were working in your favor, even when you didn’t think so.

You Are NOT Helpless; You Are a Co-creator!

So what I’m trying to put out there, is that the Universe is always working for you, whether you ask for it or not. YOU can make your life much more better, and more meaningful, if you let go of your guilt of asking for too much, or trying to figure everything out on your own, and instead working with the Universe to co-create a reality that better suits your human experience.

Now that you know this, only one question remains, “slow-motion, or accelerated living?”

Choice is yours! 😉
