Nowadays we hear about Karma everywhere. Most of the time in a negative way which I do not understand; Karma is a spiritual law. It is a law that causes all important aspects of our life. It is not much different from the law of gravity. We do not say anything bad about the law of gravity if we miss a step and fall down the staircase. We know it was our mistake as we were not careful on the steps. Then why we blame Karma, when we face bad consequences for a bad deed or word or even a thought.
Yes that is how Law of Karma works if we send out bad energy through thoughts, words or deeds it comes back to us in some or the other form. This is also known as cause and effect. Law of Karma is also mentioned with the phrase “as you sow so shall you reap.” or it can be explained in a scientific way by Newton’s 3rd Law; “To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction: or the forces of two bodies on each other are always equal and are directed in opposite directions.”
Have you ever met someone for the first time and instantly felt a strong negative or positive emotion for that person. You felt; “I don’t know something about her makes me feel I cannot trust her.” Or “I think we can be great friends. Though I don’t know much about him, I think I will like him.”
You feel this strongly and soon get confirming proof about your feeling. How can you explain this? The answer is hidden in the Law of Karma. If you study the karmic account you will understand why you feel various emotions for different people.
A Karmic account is an account between two souls. This account keeps a record of the positive and negative exchange of energy between these two souls. Till this account is settled these souls will interact with each other even when they take birth in a new form and a new life.
Deepak Chopra has explained Karma beautifully in The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life
“Situations seem to happen to people, but in reality, they unfold from deeper karmic causes. The universe unfolds to itself, bringing to bear any cause that needs to be included. Don’t take this process personally. The working out of cause and effect is eternal. You are part of this rising and falling that never ends, and only by riding the wave can you ensure that the waves don’t drown you. The ego takes everything personally, leaving no room for higher guidance or purpose. If you can, realize that a cosmic plan is unfolding and appreciate the incredibly woven tapestry for what it is, a design of unparalleled marvel.”
