Our Basic Message To You.

 Our Karma Logo

Karma has many definitions and translations depending on what you read or who you ask. But at it’s base is a pure simple definition. From there all other interpretations and meanings modify the base meaning. But they do not change it’s pure meaning.

The base meaning of karma is simple. For every thought, desire, and action a person has either good or bad. The same will be returned to them either immediately or in the future. That is all there is to the base meaning of karma. Everything else you know or hear about karma is an expansion of it’s base meaning.

In Christianity karma can be summarized by this passage in the bible.  Every person shall reap what one sows (Galatians 6:7). Here again this passage is a good definition of karma.

A common theme to theories of karma is its principle of causality. One of the earliest association of karma to causality occurs in the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad of Hinduism. For example it states:

“Now as a man is like this or like that,
according as he acts and according as he behaves, so will he be;
a man of good acts will become good, a man of bad acts, bad;
he becomes pure by pure deeds, bad by bad deeds;

And here they say that a person consists of desires,
and as is his desire, so is his will;
and as is his will, so is his deed;
and whatever deed he does, that he will reap”.

Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, 7th Century BCE

Okay so what, you might be saying. Why is this so important for me to learn. What will knowing more about karma do for my life. Karma is important in your life because it will centralize your focus on yourself and assist you in getting in tune with how you perceive yourself. How your thoughts are effecting your feelings. Then in turn how both of these are effecting your actions. Once you have a better understanding of how you perceive yourself and how you are feeling and acting towards others is effecting your life. You then can focus on areas of yourself that if changed would bring positive impact to your life. As you heal yourself and bring your life into a new positive direction. How you are perceived by and treat others will naturally improve and this in turn will have a positive effect on their life.

The ripple effect. As a pebble dropped in water that rolls out in all directions. As more people effect positive change to themselves more ripples will be created and at some point a tsunami will be created that will draw more and more people into this new positive way of life.

The ultimate goal of affecting the lives of people into a more positive existence together will bring about a calming effect to all the hatred and perceived differences among the people and nations of the world. That is when a shift to becoming a more peaceful world will start to be the new norm.

World peace will never be achieved by putting out a in your face loud movement. But will only reach a lasting effect when the personal attitude of each person in the world has changed.

Our message we are sharing with you is one that says using karma as your personal focus to improve your life through the realization that your own thoughts, desires and actions are the base problem in your life. Use karma to fix you. And then share the new you with all who you come in contact with.

The karma on our logo represents you. The dove and olive branch represents you willing to be open minded and look past differences in other people and live a peaceful existence with them.

Put a touch of karma in the palm of your hand and experience what happens next.

Understanding Is The Key To Enlightenment

Have you every seen something bad happen to someone and either said yourself or heard someone say karma came back and got them. I personally have heard it too many times to count. I have yet to ask anyone if they believe in karma and get a no answer in return. So why is it that no one pays attention to karma unless it is coming back to someone in a negative way? Karma only gives consequences so as to guide you back to being a good person. Karma is not like breaking the laws. Where if you do not get caught you have no consequences. Karma sees all you think and do. Then returns the same back to you. Karma is absolute and has been at work in your life since you were born.

Open your mind for a minute to the possibility that in gods creation of us he also put in us a automatic system that rewards and punishes us for all of our thoughts, feelings and actions. Be them good or bad.  We are societal creatures, not solitary. So within us is a inherent guiding principle of the difference between what is good or what is bad in our interaction and treatment of others. Read this research on very young children…  HERE .

Lets take this thought a step further and say the in the creation of this guiding principle of good and bad he also added automatic rewards or consequences for the adherence to or failure there of. To exist in a society there has to be a basic set of rules that allows each of us to be a part of a society.  Because here again we are not solitary creatures. Why can this basic set of rules not be within us?

It is within us, it is called karma. The bible does not call it karma it says that each person shall reap what they sow.  Karma functions in each of us with rewards and consequences based solely 0n our thoughts, feelings, and actions and returns the same back to us in like kind.  Just as god either blesses us or gives us consequences for what we sow. These two principles mirror each other.

One indicator that god is behind this automatic rewards and consequences system within us. Because god holds the trump card to everything. That card is called forgiveness.  He can forgive you for mistakes made in your life.  So the next time your karma is coming back upon you and is really hampering your happiness or situation in life. Seek gods forgiveness and get back in his good graces and in short order you will see a positive change in the karma coming back to you..

God gave us free will. But there are limits to this free will when it comes to being less than good to his other believers. And god personally does not to send his consequence every time you do something bad. It automatically comes back to you. Just as your life is enriched daily if you remain in his good graces.  God is the almighty,  I believe there is nothing he cannot do. But my mind has a hard time wrapping around the concept that he watches each of his billions of believers every second of every day. And hands out good graces or consequences every second of everyday to each of us.  It makes more sense to me that this is automatically done.

At the end of our life when we stand in judgement god merely has to look at your life and where you are at in your karma cycle. And what kind of life you lived will be very apparent.

Karma is a missing link in your life. If you get in tune with yourself and closely have a look at your thoughts, feelings and actions towards yourself and others. Then look closely at how these are impacting your life. This self awareness will help you make meaningful changes to your life. Then have a ripple effect to all who you come in contact with.

The decision is your to make. If you open your mind to the base meaning of karma. Then apply these principles to yourself. You will begin a journey that will lead you to the life you seek. And this in turn will enrich the lives of those around you and begin the process of making a more peaceful world.

What will following karma do for you…

Understanding what karma can do for you and your life. karma can change you life in the most positive of ways. Helping you Cleanse your mind of negativity and helping you to have a positive outlook on all things you come into contact with in your life. Imagine if you will waking up with a smile on your face. You greet everyone around you with an encouraging good morning. You step out the door to head to work and right off the bat someone cuts in front of you and turns. You just slow up, smile at them and let them go about their way without letting it effect you in any way. You don’t complain that it is raining, you are glad the flowers are getting watered so they will bloom soon. When you get to work a co-worker seems to be having a rough start to the day. You go to them and lend them a compassionate ear. Upon hearing the jest of their situation you console them and in a few moments their mood lightens and they smile. As you become more conscious of your actions. you will notice that person about to come out a door behind you. You stop and hold it for them without even giving it a thought. Without thought you will know that when you are close to a school or playground that children will not be watching as they play.

Karma will help you get more in tune with you and how you are interacting with those around you. You will become more conscious of other peoples feelings and the impact your thoughts and actions have on them. Karma will help you come to terms with negative emotions inside you that hamper your happiness all the time. Karma can help you realize that maybe all the arguments you seem to constantly have with the other person in your life might actually be caused by your negative attitude about most things.

That one is so easy yet so deep. Have a look at your life. are you perfect? Do you have undying compassion to all people no matter how they treat you. Do you stay positive and happy when someone is being rude to you? Do you never drive like you are the most important person on the road? the last time you saw a homeless person did you later feel the urge to make a donation to help the homeless? Be honest with yourself and you will see that most of the things that pop up in your life that seem to hamper you. Come back to you when you have been less than a good human and done something that hampers someone else’s life.

If you take the view of karma as I have. That it is a tool that helps you become a better individual. Helps us have a deeper love and understanding of ourselves. Helps us achieve a deeper compassion for those around us. Helps us achieve a level of true happiness in our lives. And helps strength our chosen faith. Then you too will use this tool to become a better more happier you.

What People Believe is Vital to their Karma

By Stuart Wilde

Morpheus says to Neo in the Matrix film, you can take the red pill and see how far the rabbit hole goes, or you can take the blue pill and wake in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.

The-Maxtix

Some writers and commentators want to change people’s options, I’m not one of those. I think what people believe is part of the restriction of the karma they have designed for themselves; it will take them wherever they are supposed to go, one should not mess with that. Then if someone reads something and it changes their mind and sets them free, all well and good.

We are surrounded by tricks and traps set for us; disinformation is the main game of the official party line. If you are savvy you can feel out what is a lie, you can’t rely on officials to tell the truth as they manipulate people into a hellish state of control over their minds and actions.

22% of Americans believe the official story of 911.

You’d wonder what planet they are on, but it’s important to live and let live and allow everyone their way. I try with my concepts to set people free of control and domination, but some are not ready; freedom is too scary for some.  We have to grow up psychologically to accept freedom, just as I said recently truth is often more than people can take.

Humanity needs to grow but to that end the Internet is teaching us all, offering what is usually free information. It’s the gateway to the world’s eventual liberation, a way towards personal freedom as the lies fall and people become brave enough to stand their ground, and they teach that to the children that are coming up, so they are strong and free. It gives us encouragement, for now anyway, while it lasts.

First you have to comprehend most information is second hand and secondly you have to be humble and realize you probably don’t know very much at all. People say that on the spiritual journey the further they go, the more they realize they don’t know anything.

Be open, read stuff you don’t agree with, see what others believe even if it’s not your cup of tea, that way you are not as restricted and closed down as a person.  Stuart Wilde

Avoiding the Collective Karma

by Stuart Wilde

Karma

Your waking intellect (your personality) brings to you an instant karma. For example, if you are diligent and responsible, life tends to treat you the same way.

If you’re uncaring and irresponsible, you pull to you all sorts that will treat you erratically and let you down. If you are out of control emotionally and inattentive, you slip off the sidewalk and sprain your ankle; if you stay in control and focused, you complete your journeys without incident.

If you are generous, people treat you warmly, if you are mean, life treats you more harshly. Your waking intellect bends reality to suit your personality. So quite naturally, you see and comprehend life and events as you want to see them, so you may not realize you are hard on people, and yet you may wonder why life is hard on you. Karma is hidden. It doesn’t usually offer explanations. You have to work things out looking inside yourself.

Beyond the intellect is your subconscious. Very few have much idea what their subconscious mind is or what information it contains. You will see it talking to you in your dreams, but it may offer you such an incoherent hotchpotch of images and feelings, you haven’t much idea what it is saying.

The subconscious mind is more the ‘real’ you, as it doesn’t have the fake concoction of the waking intellect, it just accepts your feeling and ideas and impulses, without the ability to alter them. Simply put you could say, beyond denial is the subconscious. It is the perpetual memory of everything that you are and all your innermost feelings. It’s your raw self.

Your intellect ceases, when your brain stops functioning at death. But I believe your subconscious lives on in a mirror-world dimension, a parallel world that is placed opposite to this one, right is left in the world of the subconscious mind. In effect, the subconscious is what we call ‘the soul’.

Jung discovered much about the collective unconscious. He said we are all linked by the same archetypes and symbols: mother, father, life, death, etc. I think Jung was right. We are all one-mind, and while you have your own karma, which is fairly instant, derived from balance and imbalance, you are also linked to a more distant ‘collective karma’ of your society or nation, and that is linked into an even more distant global karma.

Deep in the subconscious are your archetypal feelings and impulses: love, hate, equanimity, arrogance, each is a defined compartment; you could say each is a dimension of its own—birds of a feather flock together in the subconscious realms. You drift into that part of the mirror-world that is comfortable for you. Where you go, your long-term karma goes with you, for your subconscious mind can pull to you a long-term individual karma many years in the becoming, as well as a more distant collective karma that belong to you as well as many others.

Your instant karma you can easily change by taking charge of your life and being more practical and living a healthier lifestyle, but your long-term collective karma is more trapping. You can’t escape that as easily, unless you make moves very early on. For example, if you were a carpenter in Nagasaki in the 1940s, you had your daily instant karma, keeping your family fed say, but unbeknown to you, a collective karma approached. If you were aware of your subconscious and that of people around you, you would have left Nagasaki, and many thousands probably did. Others traveled there the day before the bomb. They came to join the collective unconscious department that accommodates for 200,000 incinerations in one day.

The trick to understanding the collective karma is to listen to what people are saying about their feelings and to watch their innermost impulses. If you watch the news you’ll see the national-ego running rampant. It’s all arrogance, disdain and self-interest. So you can see where the national karma might be headed. The trick is to uncouple from the collective feelings and try to discover who you really are? Do you agree with ideals being expressed or do you differ? What are your innermost feelings and impulses? You may discover that you like the shared impulses you see on the news, and if you do, you will have to accept the collective fate that that might create. The problem is you don’t know exactly where the collective fate will end up. Is it Nagasaki or Nirvana?

 

Each of us has the option of going with the collective karma of our people, or you can vote “No” and walk in the other direction, but you have to make a move soon, as a ‘collective karma’ is the most trapping and the least easy to escape from. That is because people don’t see it coming, because it is the result of a ‘collective idea’ that everyone agrees to, so that makes it seem right.

If you’re very reliant on others, you are linked to their karma. The more you become self-sufficient and self-reliant, the more you are in your own karma, and the easier life is to control. If you can’t make major changes, make small ones.
