Karma and Meditation

The Karma lives with us, the karma is part of our lives from the very moment of our birth to the moment of our death, because every time that we do something and even every time that we stop doing something, that generates karma, and you cannot avoid it in any way.

Of course that not all the karma that we generate is the same, there is a kind of karma that ties us or chains us to this life, and another kind of karma that liberates us of the reincarnation cycle.

The karma that chains us, known as Vishayakarma, has as fruits the misery and the lack of interior peace, while the karma generated by good actions or disinterested actions, know as the Sreyokarma allow us to reach the prosperity and the happiness of the soul, that it is much more than reaching the simple external happiness.

Every time that we face an activity with the desire of obtaining a certain result, this throws us into the arms of the desire, the greed and the ego demons, while only the pure actions that we do for love without taking into account the possible consequences of them, are the kind of actions that drive us little by little toward the illumination and the liberation.

That ones whose nature allows them to carry out this kind of unselfish activities, little by little realize that God provides them of all that they need and of all that confers them the interior peace. Another form of achieving the yearned interior peace is the meditation.

Perhaps you might ask yourself why? Why is the meditation so necessary?

Because the man always acts in two dimensions, the external dimension governed by the physical senses, and the internal dimension governed by the intelligence and the mind.

The internal conscience cannot move for itself, but rather needs the guide of the intelligence and the mind, that are the ones related with the external world, they are as the oxen that pull a carriage. These oxen are anxious to begin to walk, but to take us to the correct destination they should be educated, they should be indicated which is the route that takes us to the place to which wants to arrive the internal conscience. And these are the roads of the Truth, the Rightness, the Peace and the Love.

Then to liberate us from the enslaving karma, it is necessary to teach the intelligence and mind’s oxen the art of dragging the carriage of the internal conscience, and this is achieved by means of the practices of the meditation and the repetition of the name of God.

And the conscience, to be able to guide the oxen of the intelligence and the mind, must calm and control the conflicting desires that infest the mind, and this is achieved when we learn how to point our mind to a single direction.

When thanks to the meditation, the bewildered mind dives in the view and repetition of the name of the Lord, the Divine Splendor able to burn the wrong and to illuminate the happiness is manifested.

It is easy to understand the benefits of the meditation. Anyone that undertakes a task, knows that only when he concentrates his efforts toward a single point, he can achieve the desired success. Even the most insignificant tasks require concentration, and the power of an unshakable effort is so big, that even the worst difficulties surrender to it.

When we practice the meditation in the Supreme Being, the mind learns how to retire its attention from the material objects, and the life acquires a new splendor when we get aware of the Divine Essence that is inside us, and guides us into the state of Blessedness.

How sweet is a fruit? There’s no way to explain that appropriately, the only way of knowing that is to eat the fruit.

How good is the meditation? There’s no way of knowing the taste of its fruits until we don’t decide to experience it.

Karma Yoga – The Art of Living

The ancient book of Gita, which is the treatise on the living has led a great stress on the karma. Karma is defined as the action and its fruits. Ancient Hindu saints have believed that a mans life is the direct result of his karma. Good thoughts, words and deeds lead to good and happy life while bad thoughts, words and deeds lead a person to disaster. This has been postulated in the 18th century by Isaac Newton, who gave his law as “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
The branch of yoga that deals with karma is called as the karma yoga. Usually you are bound by the cravings and desires associated with your act but you can free yourself by doing the act but dissociating yourself from its consequences. This is the basic concept behind karma yoga and the person who follows this path is known as karma yogi. His behaviour is of indifference and while the world may think he is not interested, in reality he has mastered his desires and has developed awareness of the real significance of the events that occur around him.
This yoga involves doing your duty without any reservations but is free of the cravings of the results that are obtained from the act. This attitude is difficult to acquire because we are taught to hanker after the fruits of the labour and any failure to obtain the desired results leads you to frustration and negative thinking. Also, constant attachment to the results leads you to stress, competition and aggressiveness. This has led to increased incidences of stress, diabetes, depression, heart ailments and suicides and has led many youngsters to use drugs, alcohol and cigarettes. Hence following the teaching of Krishna in Gita, wherein he advises Arjun: “You are entitled to an action but not its fruits” will lead you to a happy and stress free life.
A karma yogi realizes this and hence he follows the path of detachment. But this does not make him dull or inefficient. On the contrary, he channelizes his entire energy into the tasks at hand with complete vigour as his energy is not dissipated and gives it a best shot. Hence the results of his actions are the best and he gets good fruits. He does not run after pleasure but pleasure follows him. This makes him a pleasant person to be around and thus enjoys success in his life.

QUE ES EL KARMA


Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/drbonomi/www/yoga-karma/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building-v-2-1/internal_link_building.php on line 118

La palabra karma en sánscrito significa acción, por lo cual toda acción es karma, y desde el punto de vista metafísico, el karma es también la consecuencia de las acciones realizadas, y karma es también el deseo de poseer una cosa. El acto mismo de decidir la creación es karma, por eso el karma es la naturaleza de Dios, de la Voluntad Divina, y el karma que se ejecuta en consonancia con Su voluntad, se vuelve parte de Dios.

Escribo esto como una expresión de ayuda para todo aquel que está buscando la suprema meta de todo ser humano… que es la liberación del dolor, y el logro de la bienaventuranza.

El que a cuchillo mata es necesario que a cuchillo muera dice el Apocalipsis, esto significa que debemos recibir lo mismo que hemos dado.

Cada vez que nos sucede algo, lo correcto es pensar que eso es nuestro karma, es decir que el karma no solo es culpable del lado feo de la vida, sino también del lado agradable, o dicho de otra forma, lo que nos sucede a cada instante es lo que merecemos, en base a lo que hemos sembrado tanto en esta vida, como en las anteriores.
Por supuesto que cuando nos suceden cosas agradables, siempre estamos dispuestos a creer que las merecemos, y cuando son desagradables tendemos a pensar que eso es injusto, o que ya es hora que dejen de sucedernos cosa desagradables. Pero esta es solo la visión distorsionada de alguien que no está capacitado para comprender, que siempre somos responsables de lo que nos pasa, aunque la causa se encuentre en vidas pasadas.

EL KARMA DEBE PAGARSE

El karma debe vivirse, el karma debe pagarse, quemarse. Pero también podemos liberarnos de sus efectos…

Todo aquel que en algún momento ha pensado que las metas de placer que nos proporciona la sociedad son solo transitorias, y en el fondo siempre le dejan hambre por algo más. Todo aquel que se siente acongojado por el miedo, el dolor y las aparentes injusticias que el mundo nos muestra día a día, puede encontrar en esta enseñanza la luz y la paz que necesita.

El aspirante a la liberación debe aprender a anhelar sin desesperar, y no debe esperar el exito inmediato, sino que sus acciones deben estar coronadas por la paciencia.

Quienquiera que confunde su cuerpo físico con su Ser, se ve atrapado por el sufrimiento y las necesidades del mundo material, y deberá reencarnan de vida en vida, hasta tanto aprenda a superar esta limitación esencial, hasta tanto aprenda a despertar de la ilusión de Maya como enseño en el CD de Milagros: http://www.drbonomi.com/temas/tema40.php

El hombre común piensa que el alma y la vida después de la vida, es algo ilusorio o por lo menos de dudosa existencia, mientras cree que el ilusorio mundo material es lo único cierto. Y decimos que el mundo material es ilusorio, pues nuestro verdadero Ser es nuestro ser espiritual, que solo transitoriamente ocupa un cuerpo físico, durante todas las diferentes encarnaciones que sea necesario, hata tanto podamos realizar nuestro Yo superior.

Nuestra incapacidad para distinguir entre lo que es real y lo que no lo es, es lo que nos sumerge en el océano del dolor, y cuando aprendemos a distinguirlo nos liberamos de todo pesar.

LA SALVACION DEL KARMA

La gloria mundana se obtiene por la actividad y el esfuerzo humano, se obtiene con el karma. Pero la salvación del karma se obtiene con la gracia de Dios.

Generalmente el hombre busca solo la felicidad y la alegría, y le huye al dolor y la desdicha, a quienes considera sus enemigos, pero esto es un grave error.

Cuando uno está feliz, se siente preocupado por el riesgo de perder la dicha, y al mismo tiempo la felicidad hace que nos olvidemos de nuestras obligaciones como seres humanos, arrastrándonos hacia el egoísmo.

La aflicción en cambio conduce a la indagación, al auto-examen movido por el miedo de que nos sucedan cosas peores. Así el sufrimiento es el cimiento del crecimiento, mientras que la felicidad agota la existencia del mérito que se había acumulado, y por esto no dura, pues una vez agotado el mérito, debemos hacer mérito nuevamente para volver a disfrutarla.

En realidad tanto el disfrute como el sufrimiento son dones de Dios, y así deben considerarse.

La felicidad y la desdicha son inseparables, son como el día y la noche, son los dos extremos de la oscilación del péndulo de la existencia. Cuando el péndulo oscila mucho hacia uno de los lados, inevitablemente debe oscilar luego en la misma medida hacia el otro, para así lograr el equilibrio.

El hombre sabio es aquel que sabiendo que el péndulo debe moverse mientras hay vida, en vez de impulsarlo fuertemente hacia el lado de la felicidad, condenándose así a una gran infelicidad, trata que las oscilaciones no sean excesivas, ni hacia un lado ni hacia el otro. Es decir trata de lograr la ecuanimidad.

Y ¿qué es lo que se gana al lograr la ecuanimidad? ¿se gana la capacidad de no alterarse demasiado ni con lo bueno ni con lo malo? ¿se gana tal vez la paciencia? NO. Se gana algo mucho más valedero, se gana la inmortalidad.

Tu puedes aprender a estar satisfecho con lo que te suceda, ya sea agradable o desagradable, pues esa es la voluntad de Dios. La falta de alegría solo se da en los que carecen de conocimiento.

También puedes aprender a no ser afectado por la alegría ni por la tristeza, por la ganancia ni por la pérdida, por la victoria ni por la derrota; si aprendes a no sentirlos como propios.

Así como una persona desecha su ropa vieja y se pone otra, asi el morador del cuerpo desecha uno y se pone otro, y en cada vida material se va pasando por las experiencias que son el resultado de lo sembrado con pensamientos, palabras y actitudes de las vidas previas.

Todos tenemos un karma, algunos lo viven como una pena que tienen impuesta, para ellos el karma es algo pesado. Cuando algo les sale bien se sienten orgullosos y sienten júbilo, y en otros momentos sienten agotamiento y disgusto. Pero si vives tus actos como la simple expresión de tu propio Ser espiritual, para tí la carga será cada día más liviana, y en ella puedes encontrar tu fuerza.

LOS ESCLAVOS DEL KARMA

El esclavo del karma es aquel que persigue los placeres sensoriales, o depende de los objetos para su felicidad.

El camino debe estar regido por la mesura, no ser demasiado lento nil demasiado rápido, ya que no puedes renunciar de golpe al ansia por lo material.

Dondequiera que uno este, cualquiera que sea la actividad que desarrollamos, es necesario desarrollarla como un acto de adoración a Dios, ya que Dios está en todas partes, en todad las cosas, en todos nuestros actos, en todos nuestros sentimientos, y debiera estar por eso presente en toda nuestra vida.

No hay nadie que esté en un cuerpo y no tenga karma, pero el karma de los santos es el ideal al que hay que aspirar, cuando se desea la liberación del sufrimiento.

El buscador espiritual es un ser humano superior, que puede aprender a no preocuparse por el resultado de sus esfuerzos, antes bien aprender a ofrecer su karma a Dios, y dejar que El sea quien recoja los frutos. Es más, puede aprender a que sea El quien realiza los actos a través suyo, para que entonces realmente sea solo El quien merezca los resultados. Y esto te libera de sus deudas kármicas.

COMO LIBRARNOS DEL KARMA

Cuando realizamos cosas pensando en el fruto que nos reportarán, nos exponemos a la pérdida, el dolor y hasta el castigo. Las acciones que no nos atan a las consecuencias son las que ofrecemos a Dios, todas las demás producen esclavitud.

Primero es necesario preocuparse por hacer bien lo que debemos hacer, luego poco a poco podemos buscar darnos cuenta de porqué lo hacemos. Cuando logramos descubrir los motivos egoístas por los cuales hacemos lo que hacemos, entonces ya sabemoss qué es lo que debemoss corregir.

Siempre se puede ofrecer a Dios todo lo que hacemoss, y todo lo que nos sucede. No importa si nos suceden cosas buenas o cosas malas, todo debe ofrecérsele. Día y noche es necesario renunciar a nuestro pequeño ego.

Cada buena acción que se hace sin egoísmo, sin especular sobre los frutos que nos debe dar, rompe una deuda kármica anterior. Cada vez que somo víctima de la ingratitud, el ataque, la inusticia, si somos capaces de aceptarlo como voluntad de Dios, esto nos libera de una parte de nuestra deuda kármica.

Sea lo que sea que hagamos, no debemos tomarlo como nuestro karma, antes bien debemos pensar que es el karma de Dios dedicado a Dios. Cuando se logra hacerlo, uno se ve liberado de las manchas del egoísmo.

Cada uno de nuestros actos, los que deseamoss y los que rechazamoss, los que planeamos y los inesperados, producen una consecuencia que puede ser buena o mala, esto es inevitable, y esto es lo que nos ata a la rueda del karma, a la rueda de las existencias.

La única forma de liberarnos de la reencarnación y el sufrimiento, es dedicarle cada acto a Dios, y obrar como si el realizador de nuestros actos fuera Dios. De esta forma ni los resultados positivos ni los resultados negativos te afectarán.

Karma – What is It and What is Its Influence?


Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/drbonomi/www/yoga-karma/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building-v-2-1/internal_link_building.php on line 118

By Sacha Tarkovsky Platinum Quality Author

The word “Karma,” is a word everyone knows, but what does it actually mean?

Karma is simply something that exists within us, which moves us all and is made up of events that have happened, or will happen to us. How can things that happened to us make Karma?

Here it is important to understand that anything we did is effectively saved in our consciousness and reappears. We save everything we do in our consciousness; this is the fundamental point to keep in mind when considering Karma.

This consciousness works as a spirit and when the spirit comes to the time of death it detaches itself becoming independent and separates from the body.

When this consciousness which was in the spirit disappears, it will be reborn again. Just because consciousness has disappeared, does not mean things that happened in the past will disappear altogether.

When consciousness disappears, everything that happened to us will remain latent and reappear; these things that are latent in all of us will continuously cause a reaction and influence our life and being.

Karma is always there and influences our lives – This is the essence of Karma.

To understand Karma fully, we need to understand the concept of reincarnation.

Reincarnation simply means that everything is repeated. Something which exists continuously therefore leads to repetition.

Past, present and future are therefore interwoven. Our lives are influenced by this law and every creature on the earth is born and then dies and is reborn.

If we were born into the world and we die we don’t disappear we continue to exist and effectively reappear, something is saved in our consciousness that does not disappear but continuously remains.

Therefore, what happened to you in present your past life will influence your future life. This is referred to as the Law of Cause and Effect.

Karma will exist in you by cause and effect. As long as this Karma exists a person will never be free from the control of Karma and its influence.

Karma is not a fate, we all act with free will and create his own destiny. According to the Hinduism, if we sow good in our lives we will reap good; if we sow evil we will reap evil.

Karma refers to the totality of our actions in our present and previous lives and these actions effectivley determine our future.

The conquest of karma relies on intelligent action and dispassionate reaction.

Not all karmas rebounds straight away against individuals, some accumulate and return unexpectedly in our present, or future lives.

Karma is considered entirely impersonal and should not be seen as a punishment or retribution, but an extended expression of natural acts.

The effects experienced, can to be mitigated by actions and are not necessarily fateful, but are influenced by positive action.

The Consequences of Karma

For every action you take as we have seen there will be a reaction in the future. This is the law of Karma.

Whatever activity we do, good or bad, will bring us good or bad reactions. For every action you take, you will face a reaction in the future, in your next incarnation.

If you perform good actions, you will face good reactions in the future; if you perform bad actions they will see you face bad actions.

This may come in many different forms:

If you take good actions you may benefit in terms of, good health, wealth, personal fulfillment etc.

If you take bad actions, you will face bad reactions in the future. The bad reactions may come in the form of ill health, poverty. Personal unfullfilement etc

When we suffer in our present life, we are facing the consequences of the bad reactions to our bad actions we took in the past.

Our actions include everything we do in our lives, including our physical deeds, words and thoughts. There will be a reaction to all of these, that is the law of Karma.

Actions, which can result in bad Karma, are: Violence, ignorance, cruelty, untruthfulness, greed etc

Actions, which build good Karma, are the opposite: non-violence, generosity, charity, self-control, truthfulness, simplicity, forgiveness and an absence of ego.

Our destiny is effectively in our own hands and we are all held responsible for all your actions.

The reason why some good people suffer all their life is, they maybe good now, but they are suffering because they are facing the consequences of the actions they took in their previous lives. As they are now taking good actions they will face good reactions, in their next life.

On the other hand, the reason why some really bad people enjoy a good life despite being bad can be explained by the fact they are now facing the good reactions to the good actions they took in previous lives.

However, because they are taking bad actions now, they will face bad reactions in the future and suffer. As a consequence if a person takes good actions in life and builds good karma, he or she will be born into a better life in the next incarnation.

A person is born again and again and faces the consequences of his or her own actions.

Karma and Our Law and Order Systems.

Why do we have the police, judges, courts and jails? We have a system of law and order in each and every country, which makes us responsible for our actions, if not we face the consequences of our actions under the law.

Without Law and Order systems, life would be reduced to anarchy. People could kill, loot, steal, rape and destroy property and people, would not be held responsible for their actions.

We have the human Law and Order System in every country and the citizens of each country are held responsible for the actions they take and those who break the law are punished.

Just as we have the Human Law and Order system in countries, God has a Law, the Law of Karma.

We are held responsible for all our actions under this law, the differences between the human system and God’s system are:

With Karma, we are responsible for all our actions, including words and thoughts and we cannot escape punishment.

With Karma, there is no escape we don’t need to be caught by the police, we will face reactions to each and every action we take in the future, With the normal law and order system some people do get away with murder and other crimes, but they don’t with karma, everything is noted and has a consequence.

We Cannot Escape Karma!

With Karma, we are punished for our bad actions in future lives for the actions we have taken in past lives and we are rewarded

for good actions that we take:

As the old saying goes:

“What goes around comes around”

This is the principle that underlines Karma.

Karma – how to make it work for you!


Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/drbonomi/www/yoga-karma/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building-v-2-1/internal_link_building.php on line 118

by Michael McGrath

I am sure you have heard the song “Karma Chameleon” by Culture Club but have you ever given much thought to its meaning? While on Earth, you are living in a world of reincarnation which is governed by the law of karma. Karma begins to propel you as Soul on a personal journey through the universe. Karma ends when you have reached enlightenment and fully realise that this physical reality and the Universe itself is just an illusion. When you reach a state of knowingness that there is but One all pervading essence and that essence or consciousness is You!
So what is Karma and how does it work? While in the illusion you have a soul. This soul lives past, present, and future lives. To grow in love, joy, and awareness, you reincarnate into a series of physical bodies to experience different existences. This road leads to the experiences of being both sexes, all races, religions, and ethnic types throughout many lifetimes.
Karma in its simplicist terms can be described by the biblical statement “as you sow, so also shall you reap”. Karma is the principle of cause and effect, action and reaction, total cosmic justice and personal responsibility. It brings good experiences as well as bad – a debt must be repaid and a blessing rewarded.
A more indepth esoteric look at karma gives us the following distinctions: Sanchita Karma: the accumulated result of all your actions from all your past lifetimes. This is your total cosmic debt. Every moment of every day either you are adding to it or you are reducing this cosmic debt. Prarabdha Karma: the portion of your “sanchita” karma being worked on in the present life. If you work down your agreed upon debt in this lifetime, then more past debts surface to be worked on. Agami Karma: the portion of actions in the present life that add to your “sanchita” karma. If you fail to work off your debt, then more debts are added to “sanchita” karma and are sent to future lives. Kriyamana Karma: daily, instant karma created in this life that is worked off immediately. These are debts that are created and worked off – ie. you do wrong, you get caught and you spend time in jail.
As a soul, you experience a constant cycle of births and deaths with a series of bodies for the purpose of experiencing this illusionary world gaining spiritual insights into your own true nature until the totality of all experiences show you Who you really are – the I AM! Until you have learned, you will find that pretending that the rules of karma do not exist or trying to escape the consequences of your actions is futile.
Although it may often “feel” like punishment, the purpose of karma is to teach not to punish. Often the way we learn is to endure the same type of suffering that we have inflicted on others and also rexperience circumstances until we learn to change our thinking and attitudes.
We are all here to learn lessons as spiritual beings in human form. These lessons are designed to help us grow into greater levels of love, joy, and awareness. They teach us our true nature of love. Where we do not choose love, show forgiveness, teach tolerance, or display compassion, karma intervenes to put us back on the path of these lessons. Quite simply, the only way to achieve a state of karmic balance is to be love.
Before you incarnated into your present personality, you agreed to put yourself in the path of all that is you need to learn. Once you got here, you agreed to forget this. Karma is impersonal and has the same effect for everyone. It is completely fair in its workings and it is predictable – “do onto others as you would have them do unto you” is a way to ensure peace and tranquillity in your own life as well as the lives of those you come into contact with. The law of karma is predictable – “as you sow, so shall you reap” what is done to you is the net result of what you have done to others!
Karma gives you the opportunity at every moment to become a better person than you are and to open up to the realization that you are the master of your own fate.
The goal of karma is to give you all the experiences that you need to evolve into greater levels of love, joy, awareness, and responsibility. Karma teaches that you are totally responsible for the circumstances of your life. They keep you on the straight and narrow until you have mastered your vehicle and can ride freely on your own. Once you understand that you are the master of your own circumstances and that everything you experience is a direct result of your past actions due to your thinking and emotional responses you can overcome its seeming negative effects by creating only good karma.
Karma forces us to look beyond ourselves (oneness) so that we can see ourselves as we truly are Whole, Complete, at One with everything. Once we truly understand ourselves, we can see our divinity and our unity with all life.
Karma drives us to service. Love means service. Once you accept total responsibility for your life, you see yourself as a soul in service to God. Once you do, you become a fully realized being, allowing God to experience the illusion through you.
Belief in karma and an understanding of its workings will lead you to a life of bliss. Only your own deeds can hinder you. Until the time comes when we release ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles of limitation and fully understand who and what we are we will live under the mantle of karma. So until that day why not create some wonderful experiences for ourselves by “doing onto others, as we would have them do unto us”.

I Know My Destiny – Can I Change It?


Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home/drbonomi/www/yoga-karma/wp-content/plugins/internal_link_building-v-2-1/internal_link_building.php on line 118

By: Jhalak Jerajani

Destiny, another common word that holds a lot of meaning. How many times have we used this term in vain?? What does it mean? Most commonly it means an event or a course of events that will inevitably happen in the future. In other words, fixed natural order of the universe. How many times has something happened, something we cannot really control and we can’t help but say, “I don’t know what to do? It’s destiny!”

There are several ways to go about understanding destiny. There is the spiritual/ religious way, scientific way, and then there is a way that says that destiny is nothing but something made up or fictitious. It is widely believed that our lives are fixed by an almighty power that decides our fate, Hinduism believes in the law of karma. It states that our life is dominated by that actions or “karmas” of past life. It believes that good deeds lead to “punya” and bad deeds lead to “paap” and on the bases of our karma, we get happiness and suffering in our next life. It is also believed that there is a god up there looking down on us, keeping record of all we are doing, I had heard this in a movie, but it made a lot of sense to me. The message was that god has chosen 10 doors for us, but he leaves it to us to choose which one is right for us. It just depends on us to find the rite way.

Our modern world is highly dominated by logic and science. So as always there is a scientific view of things. Our perception of what our life is going to be like is dominated greatly by many aspects of our environment. When you are growing up your beliefs and attitude towards life, your spiritual or religious background, what part of the world you live in, your confidence level, the locus of control are greatly influenced by your parents. These factors also play an important part in your understanding of the word called “destiny”.

If your parents are strong believers, living with them and learning from them you sub-consciously have the same beliefs. Then in college you get influenced by your friends and what they think. Suddenly what you learnt at home and at school is overridden. Yes, you certainly still believe that destiny does exist but are a little confused whether to listen to your friends or believe what your parents say, what your religion teaches you.

But another question may arise, who really thinks of destiny when they in college? Yes college is the time of life almost no one forgets, your first dance with your date, first set of exams after all the fun and games that made you so nervous. The first time you fell in love. Doesn’t everything just look so beautiful? But then if you fail that exam or have had your heart broken or both and you don’t quite understand why this is happening to you? Did you do something horrible to deserve this? or was it just destiny?

But sometime in all our lives we all have gone through some or the other phase where we think to ourselves that it was destiny playing a prank on us. You not only think of destiny when we are sad but also when we are happy. When you find a spouse, someone you really love, or when you have been working so hard and finally get a break you were looking for. What ever the reason be we wonder about our destiny when we don’t really understand what is going on. But not everyone is so like minded. There are so many others who do not believe that their life is already decided. They very strongly believe that their life is in their hands, destiny has nothing to do with it. Everything is simply a matter of cause and effect.

Interestingly, that is something similar to what the Caravaka School of philosophy believes. They say that there is nothing called past life, future life, hell, heaven, etc. The past is gone and can never come back, the future is unknown and is unsure, the only certainty is the present. So enjoy the present and live life to the fullest. Many people believe this. May be not to the extreme but they do, to them life is just the consequence of choices. Everyone is entitled to their own point of view. No perception is right or wrong.

So many people, everyday, begin their day with new aspirations of doing something new, something productive, so often they go through the daily news paper and read their “luck” and know what is stored for them during the day. So I pause with the question, can knowing our destiny really change it? The answer to this is a paradox. I personally believe that life is full of decisions and choices. Each decision alters our life in one way or the other, and knowing what is written in our destiny can help us make better decisions.

Humans are ultimately hedonistic and we all want what is best for us and for the ones we love and care about. Knowing what the future might hold can show us a way, or may give us hope that something wonderful is waiting for us. We can spend most of our life dreaming about something wonderful to happen to us or we can work hard to achieve what we want. Either way the future is going to come. All we can do is make the right choices with the available knowledge so we can get there.

But then it is also true that what ever happens, happens for a reason, may be that finding out what is in our destiny is a part of the destiny itself. It could be that we are destined to find the knowledge so we live our life better and healthier. Well, to conclude, it is safest to say that whether knowing destiny can change the future itself, well at this moment I would only conclude that you can run from it but you can’t hide!!

FOUR TYPES OF KARMA & SOUL ENERGY CORRECTION
Meaning & Significance of Karma
Karma is a Sanskrit word springing from the root “Kri” – “to do” or “to make” or more simply, “action”. The deeper meaning of Karma can be described as an infinite chain of the results of action that is perceived and performed. Karma is a concept of wisdom, based on the Ancient Vedas and Upanishads, which explains a system where beneficial events are derived from past beneficial actions and harmful events from past harmful actions, creating a chain of actions and reactions throughout a persons reincarnated lives.
When we talk about “Our Karma” were talking about the actions weve “sown” or performed in the past (including our past lives) that are the cause of what we “reap” in our current life situation. This either becomes our Karmic Burden or Karmic Baggage or our Karmic Blessing depending on whether weve performed positive or negative actions in the past.
Every action, either physical, emotional or mental, every movement occurring either on the plane of gross matter (Sthoolam) or on the astral planes (Sookshma), causes an emission of Energy. In other words, it produces a Seed.
Being a Seed, Karma fructifies or does not fructify immediately after it is sown. The innumerable Karmic Seeds we produce by our various actions – desire, aversion, love, hatred, happiness, etc. will undoubtedly produce, sooner or later, a positive or negative result according to the nature of the seed, if not in this life, then in some future one.
The Vedas propound, “Here they say that a person consists of desires. And as is his desire, so is his will. As is his will, so is his deed. Whatever deed he does, that he will reap.”
Karma should not be confused with Fate. Fate is the notion that mans life is preplanned for him by some external power, and he has no control over his destiny. Karma on the other hand, can be corrected. Because man is a Conscious Being and he can be aware of his Karma and thus strive to change the course of events, with the help of superior powers.
Four Types of Karma
Karma is primarily of four kinds :
1. Sanchita Karma (Sum Total Karma or “Accumulated actions” or the Arrows in the Quiver)
Sanchita Karma is the vast store of piled-up Karma accumulated in the preceding and in all other previous births and yet to be resolved. In other words, it is the aggregate sum of yet unseen Karmas committed during innumerable previous existences. This is your total cosmic debt. Every moment of your every day, you are either adding to it or you are reducing this cosmic debt. It is waiting to be fulfilled in your future births. So unless and until the Sanchita Karma of a Soul is zeroed, it keeps on birthing in new physical bodies, in order to exhaust its balance Sanchita Karma.
2. Praarabdha Karma (Fructifying Karma or “Actions began; set in motion” or Arrows in Flight)
That portion of the Sanchita Karma destined to influence human life in one or the present incarnation is called Praarabdha. In other words, Praarabdha Karma is Karmic Template (of that portion of Sanchita Karma) that is ripe enough to be experienced by you and alloted for this lifetime for you to work on. If you work down your agreed upon debt in this lifetime, then more past debts will surface to be worked on. And that much Sanchita Karma gets dissolved.
Jyotish, the Vedic Astrology and any other authentic method of Astrology, at its best, can reveal only the Praarabdha Karma. Thus the Natal Horoscope is the Blue Print of the Karmic Energy Patterns of the Praarabdha Karma only.
3. Kriyamana Karma (Instant, Current Karma or “Being made” or Arrows in Hand)
Kriyamana Karma is the daily, instant Karma created in this lifetime and that we create in our life because of our free actions. It refers to those which are currently in front of us to decide or act on. This contributes to our Future Karma in a big way. They can also be worked off immediately. These are debts that are created and worked off – i.e. for example, you park your vehicle in a No Parking Space, you get caught and you are fined (punished) immediately.
While some Kriyamana Karmas bear fruit in the current life, others are stored for enjoying in future births. Thus the Kriyamana Karma is classified into two sub-categories: Arabdha Karma – literally, begun, undertaken; the Karma that is sprouting- and Anarabdha Karma – not commenced; dormant or The Seed Karma. An example : two persons committ a theft and one of them get caught – Arabdha Karma – and the other one got away – Anarabdha Karma. The thief who got caught, immediately starts to feel the effect of the cause or the reaction to his action; he gets caught and goes to jail. The other robber who escaped, will have to experience, in this life or in a future one, the effect of this wrongful action.
The Horary Chart of Prashanna and Aaruda methods of the Vedic Astrology, Tarot Reading, Runes Casting and I-Ching Reading, when done under guidance, can reflect both the Praarabdha Karma as well as the Kriyamana Karma. However, the Energy Consultancy (Energy Audit) and the resulting LifeForce Energy Assessment Report will be more accurate and more specific. It is, in a way, your latest Karmic Energy Bank Statement in the context of the query.
4. Aagami Karma (Future Karma)
Aagami Karma is the Karmic Map that is coming, as a result of the merits and demerits of the present actions of your current birth. In other words, it is the portion of Karma that is created because of the actions in the present life and that will be added to your Sanchita Karma. If you fail to work off your debt, then more debts are added to Sanchita Karma and they become more Karmic Seeds and are served to you in more future lives.
Soul Energy Correction through Crystal Energy Fields
In Vedantic Literature, there is a beautiful analogy. The Archer has already sent an arrow and it has left his hands. He cannot recall it. He is about to shoot another arrow. The bundle of arrows in the quiver on his back is the Sanchita Karma; the arrow he has shot is Praarabdha Karma; and the arrow which he is about to shoot from his bow is Kriyamana Karma. The result of the arrow that he is about to shoot is the Aagami Karma.
Here is a modern example : You go on a motor bike ride and get into an accident. The accident is your Praarabdha Karma – your allotted Karma for this life out of the entire Sanchita Karma of your Soul. To bandage the wound in order to minimize your suffering would be your Kriyamana Karma. To set an intention to be more careful in the future would be your Aagami Karma. To buy a bike light and reflectors in order to avoid future accidents would also be your Kriyamana Karma.
Based on this description, it is generally thought that Praarabdha Karma is inevitable and should be suffered and endured. It has been likened to an arrow which, once shot from a bow cannot be taken back. The intention of this example is to really and only to show how strong the Praarabdha Karma is. It does not mean that there is no remedy at all. An eminent warrior can neutralise the arrow with another arrow and can escape from being its target. Similarly, with the help of SOUL ENERGY CORRECTION done through proper CEFs – CRYSTAL ENERGY FIELDS (under the guidance of Higher Cosmic Light Beings), one can overcome not only the effects of Praarabdha Karma and Aagami Karma through Kriyamana Karma, but also nullify the Sanchita Karma itself, thereby avoiding further rebirths.

M.A. Waterman announces the release of Fishing for Karma: A Lesson in Forgiveness, a fascinating spiritual and karmic journey and alarming account of devastating abuse and personal transformation in the remote regions of Alaska.
Coeur D’ Alene, ID (PRWEB) June 22, 2005 — M.A. Waterman, proudly announces the release of Fishing for Karma: A Lesson in Forgiveness. From innocence to spiritual desire, and resistance to release, Fishing for Karma forces the reader to question life, the existence of a higher Source, methods for understanding the spiritual journey, and the often-overwhelming responsibility of personal choice.

The spiritual path, often strewn with seemingly insurmountable obstacles, challenges the traveler and the reader from beginning to end in Fishing for Karma. From the natural receptivity of a child to the denial and confusion of the adult walk, Emily learns what it takes to live a spiritual life in an often harsh and very material world. Repeatedly tempted by her own patterns and lack of discernment, she leaves her hometown for the isolated regions of the Aleutian Islands, where she meets a companion she has known for lifetimes. His lack of regard for societal rules and his blatant abuse of her love for him, challenge her to rediscover what God’s purpose really is in her life, who is in charge here, and to release her anger and fear by staking a claim in her own life.

Karma, the unique tracking system of our individual and collective choices, and the childhood game of ‘Hot and Cold’ become tools for Emily’s use on the path to realizing that there is only one grand conclusion to every choice we make. Understanding replaces resistance, as Emily finds her place in the intricate and infinite cosmic puzzle.

From the innocent perception of the child to the ‘sins’ of the parent, the reader will discover there can be no significant or lasting changes in the world without each of us. Understanding our power and actual value become the challenges that inspire our movement and growth.
M.A. Waterman addresses a complicated and emotionally charged topic compassionately and with an uncommon ability to detail this difficult topic.

M.A. Waterman is a freelance writer, student of Jyotish, and astrologer in the Pacific Northwest.
