The term “Karma” is the simple way to refer to one of the primary principles of Life laid down by God, when the Creation was first established. And, no Mystic has ever attempted to state when the Creation first began? But, we are told the Creation has been going on for ‘eons’ [an ‘eon’ refers to millions or billions of years].
So, when Archeologists discover ancient ruins that puzzle them as to how these ruins were created… [by what they “think” of as primitive people], these ‘scholars’ tend to not consider that mankind has existed long before the dates proposed by various fields of science.
Would this common mistake of Egotism… still be made if modern science was to consider the Reality of Reincarnation? Perhaps it would, but I can’t help but believe that if Man was more open to Eastern Mysticism, and the Reality that both the Law of Karma, and that of Reincarnation exist, ancient history might more easily be seen as a form of “pre-history”… the evidence of which is simply so destroyed and erased by natural deterioration as to be almost invisible.
The Law of Karma is simply stated in this way: As you sow, so shall you reap! And the term Karma is Sanskrit for “action”. So, just like we find in physics, every action taken by a Soul [via the MIND which is attached to that Soul], sets in motion an opposite and equal re-action. The entire Creation is based on the duality of Yin and Yang, and the Law of Karma.
The Law of Karma applies to every living thing, which has a Soul… And, if it is living, it has a Soul? So, the carrot has a Soul, as does the 1,000 year-old tree found in various places on Earth. What science can discover of that which supports “life” amounts to elements of the physical plane, and nothing of that which sustains the “Life” of a thing.
The whole human being is composed of four simultaneously existing, and entirely separate vibrational planes, or dimensions. Only one of these is physical, tangible, and capable of being perceived by the physical senses of Man. This means that three-quarters are invisible!
Yang is the male out-going energy of Man, and Yin is the female in-going energy that is emotional in nature. The energy of the MIND is emotional energy, by the way. And MIND-level energy is invisible to the brain, and yet, the MIND is capable of feeding Delusional Thinking to the Left-Hemisphere of the brain which the brain is unable to differentiate from its normal “thinking”. I refer to this process as “DM=SI,” or Defense Mechanism equals Subtle Insanity. Fritz Perls referred to this process by the name “Scotoma,” or “blind spot”.
The second prime principle and universal law of Life is that of Reincarnation. And Reincarnation simply means the Soul [which is permanent, and immortal], does not die when the physical body dies. At death, the brain, body, personality, and psychology of a person dies, and the Soul [with MIND attached], and in its Astral body, is “judged” regarding the Karma that person created or completed in that lifetime? This is mentioned in the Bible in Hebrews 9:27.
When this “Judgement” is completed, the Karma of that person literally designs the next lifetime of that Soul. And a Soul can Reincarnate, or Transmigrate, depending upon what will serve the growth of that Soul best? Transmigrate means incarnating into a lower life form than that of human being. All “judgement” is for the “good” of the Soul, in terms of the growth and maturation of that Soul. This, of course, takes place over countless lifetimes.
So, is there anything that Man can do that is not part of creating Karma? No, one is either creating positive, or negative Karma with every thought one entertains, or action one takes.
