Karma can best be understood in the timelessness of life. If we can consider that we actually live in a timeless eternity, then we can begin to understand the relativity of life, and the notion of reincarnation. Many skeptics will disagree, and argue the points against reincarnation because “it can’t be proved”. However the best way to understand life is to validate it and prove it to your self. You don’t have to convince anyone else of anything.
If we are a spiritual soul, then our essence is timeless. The physical body form is simply the vehicle for the expression of our spirit. The conscious mind cannot remember everything that has ever happened throughout time, because the conscious mind is finite. It cannot explore or define infinity. The conscious mind is an excellent practical tool for studying, analyzing and recording data.
However, the timeless remembrance of experiences is stored in the repository of our soul memory and greater spiritual I AM. This is where all experiences are recorded (akashic record). We can only access this realm through meditation, which requires the calming of the five senses, to reach our neutral point of essence. In this space of quietude, it is possible to invoke the higher vibrational field of our soul memory and greater I AM, as a portion of Universal Consciousness.
The only other way is through conscious dream recall, which usually occurs only when it is relevant to a particular phase of our spiritual development.
So in this timeless eternity, we do not measure time with clocks, days, or working weeks. Time is really only a measurement of events, or issues.
In timeless eternity everything progresses through a series of cycles, and tasks. When one cycle or task is completed, then a new one begins, and so forth. So this follows then that our soul essence is also timeless, and that life proceeds through embodiment in the physical world, the laboratory of spirit.
This is the Continuity of Life. The soul chooses to re-embody (reincarnate) into a physical dimension (reality) for further expression, creativity, growth and development. In every new situation it will attract the relevant (Connection) cause and effect patterns that it has set up in the past. This is an ongoing part of our soul development and learning from our own creations. We are co-creators with the Original Creator – God (or whatever we perceive God to be).
A REASON: Everything that happens, is happening for a reason. There is an order to life that extends far beyond one lifetime of existence, or our legal and political laws. The natural law of cause and effect is what maintains order and balance in what may appear to be absolute chaos. This in effect, is natural justice.
Eastern philosophies call this Karma. In the Western world we have a term of; “what goes around, comes around”, which is similar. In any case, this is the Law of the Circle, or Cycles. Karma however, is not about punishment. It is about Cyclical Connection.
Karma is about learning and growth, and understanding through direct life experience, through “meeting Self”. We can be told something verbally which may make sense, but it can be easily forgotten, or not practiced. This can also be the case with mental or academic learning. However, whatever is learned through direct life experience, will be remembered on all levels, physical, emotional, mental, and at the soul level.
We are co-creators with all of life. We can be the masters of our connection – cause and effect. We can face life with confidence if we can understand the purpose of life and the true science of life at all levels. We can be aware of the consequences of choice. We can understand how cause and effect (Cyclical Connection) is part of the evolutionary journey of life. We can then understand the connection of life- We are ONE.
