What exactly is karma? Many still ascribe to the “what goes around, comes around” definition of karma. If we do bad things, those same bad things will happen to us, whereas if we show kindness, that same kindness will return into our lives. By this definition, karma is a kind of spiritual score system where we accumulate credits and demerits that we then have to live with.
In actually, karma is the energetic residue of all the choices we have ever made throughout the existence of our soul that have aligned us with negative energy. There is actually no “good karma – there is merely the absence of karma. Let’s have a detailed look at what this means.
All souls from time to time, whether intentionally or unintentionally, have made big and small choices that align with negative energy. Any decision based in fear, anger, hatred or guilt is a choice that aligns with negativity. Negative influences may trick us into making these choices. Regardless, we are responsible for these decisions. The intentional or accidental alignment with negativity becomes a part of our soul record.
We strive to overcome these negative influences. We work hard, lifetime after lifetime, and generate experiences in which we are given the opportunity to make a different choice within a similar situation – this time, one that aligns with Divine Light. Decisions that are based on love, joy, compassion, confidence, and caring are choices that align with Divine Light. This is how we transcend our karma – by choosing light over and over again.
Karma is in itself a limitation. With karma present, the Soul must generate experiences that allow it to transcend that karma. There is work we must do that is based on past choices. Sometimes, we keep making the same ignorant choice for negativity over and over again – only to be presented with the same opportunity again and again to choose light. This is how karmic patterns are generated. Eventually we learn, sometimes painfully and throughout many lifetimes, to align with Divine Light.
Is is when we live without karma that we are truly infinite in our self-expression. Free of karma, we are able to generate experiences based on our choices in the present rather than negative choices of the past. Free of karma, we are truly able to become the limitless creators of our experience.
The formula towards this goals is simple enough. Make only choices aligned with Divine Light. While simple, this is certainly not easy! Few souls incarnate without the limitation of karma. However, this is the state we strive for. And we can renew our conscious commitment towards this task at any moment. We can make a decision to align with Divine Light with every choice, great or small, as it presents itself. By being completely and utterly conscious and present, we can choose Divine Light as the core of our being with every breath we take.
Karma is certainly a limitation. But it is also an invitation, an opportunity. Karma offers us the chance to renew our commitment to Divine Light, to make a different choice. And every time we choose light, new windows and doors become open to us on our path of soul growth.
