10 Karmic Laws of Life
Karma relates to the natural flow of energy in life. It includes the concept of “cause and effect” – whatever you do will have consequences. For every action, there is a reaction. Karma is the natural order of the Universe and here are twelve concepts related to living life with this energy in mind:
1. THE GREAT LAW
“As you sow, so shall you reap”. This is also known as the “Law of Cause and Effect”. Whatever you put out there will somehow come back to you, whether it is in the form of a self fulfilling prophecy or through the energy making a full circle and finding it’s way back to you. Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us.
If what we want is Happiness, Peace, Love, Friendship… Then we should BE Happy, Peaceful, Loving and a True Friend.
2. THE LAW OF CREATION
Life doesn’t just happen, it requires our participation. We are one with the Universe, both inside and out. Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. BE yourself, and surround yourself with what you want to have present in your Life. Focus on what you want rather than what you don’t want. (Law of Attraction principles).
3. THE LAW OF HUMILITY
What you refuse to accept, will continue for you. When we don’t acknowledge something we are not in a place to effectively deal with it. If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.
4. THE LAW OF GROWTH
“Wherever you go, there you are”.
For us to GROW in Spirit, it is we who must change – and not the people, places or things around us. The only given we have in our lives is OURSELVES and that is the only factor we have control over. When we change who and what we are within our heart our life follows suit and changes too.
5. THE LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY
Whenever there is something wrong in my life, there is something wrong in me.
We mirror what surrounds us – and what surrounds us mirrors us; this is a Universal Truth. We must take responsibility what is in our life.
6.THE LAW OF CONNECTION
Even if something we do seems inconsequential, it is very important that it gets done as everything in the Universe is connected. Each step leads to the next step, and so forth and so on. Someone must do the initial work to get a job done.
Neither the first step nor the last are of greater significance, as they were both needed to accomplish the task. Past-Present-Future they are all connected.
7. THE LAW OF FOCUS
You can not think of two things at the same time. When our focus is on Spiritual Values, it is impossible for us to have lower thoughts such as greed or anger.
8. THE LAW OF GIVING AND HOSPITALITY
If you believe something to be true,then sometime in your life you will be called upon to demonstrate that particular truth.Here is where we put what we claim that we have learned, into practise.
9. PRACTICE. THE LAW OF HERE AND NOW
Looking backward to examine what was, prevents us from being totally in the HERE AND NOW. Old thoughts, old patterns of behaviour, old dreams prevent us from having new ones. Be mindful and engage your focus on what is going on around you right now.
10. THE LAW OF CHANGE
History repeats itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.
11. THE LAW OF PATIENCE AND REWARD
All Rewards require initial work and effort. Rewards of lasting value require patient and persistent effort. True joy follows doing what we’re suppose to be doing, and waiting for the reward to come in on its own time. Focusing on the process instead of the end result is where it’s at!
12. THE LAW OF SIGNIFICANCE AND INSPIRATION
You get back from something whatever you have put into it. The true value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it. Every personal contribution is also a contribution to the Whole. Lack lustre contributions have no impact on the Whole, nor do they work to diminish it.
Loving contributions bring life to, and inspire, the Whole.
