Karma Has GPS

Have you ever pondered over the injustice of how some bad people seem to leave a wake of destruction in their path, yet skip merrily forward in their lives unscathed, regardless of the victims they leave behind?  We see this in history, politics and even our personal lives.  Bad things do not always happen to bad people, and for those of us striving to live a life from a place of integrity, it can seem like a flawed and unjust system.  

We know karma exists, and that we will receive what we put out into the world, but sometimes we do not get to see the end result.  When someone has wronged us, it can be very challenging if we are having a hard time putting our lives back together, especially when the other person seems to be doing just fine.  

However, karma IS real and it does work.  It’s not a matter of revenge or payback, but simply, what one doles out, one will later receive; thereby allowing them to learn how both sides of the situation feel.  Regardless of if we see what happens or not, the result will indeed be forthcoming.

We also should understand that we need selfish, egocentric and lower vibrational humans in the world to help teach the rest of us specific lessons, and that this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  The souls who choose to come in as bad or evil humans are aiding the rest of us, and all of the souls that come in have incarnated as both good and bad beings at one time or another, so they could learn how it feels to operate from the “evil” stand point as well.  Keep in mind, none of this is real, it is simply a simulated world created so our souls can learn.

We are spiritual beings in human form at the moment, and this law of karma is part of the experience.  When we are treated improperly by another human, it is not our place to worry about how they will receive their karma.  However, how we respond will dictate whether or not we create more karma for ourselves.  I personally have found the Ho’oponopono Hawaiian prayer for forgiveness to help in these situations, and when wronged by another I simply say, “I love you, I am sorry, please forgive me, thank you.”  

We are all one, so when we hate another, or wish for revenge, it effects us too.  The wisest thing we can do is to move on with our lives, and let the law of karma play itself out.  One of the greatest tools for learning is our relationship with others, so we should welcome both those humans who bring us happiness, as well as pain.  The more we realize the laws of karma (understanding that what we put out to the Universe, is what we get back) and strive to be more positive, honest, loving, peaceful and joyous people, the sooner the world will be a better place to live for everyone.  For what we sow, so shall we reap.

    I love this! I have struggled with this concept and like the way you explained it and the prayer.

    Are you also saying that if we are treated very badly by people in our current soul’s incarnation, now here on Earth, that it is coming back to us from another life where our soul earned or deserved this karma? I am in a helping field, I strive to treat all beings well and with respect, but I keep getting treated like garbage. It bothers me to think I deserve this from another of my soul’s incarnations at some past time.

      That is one possibility. Remember, we are able to learn in all of our lives because we do not recall what happened in the other lives. That does NOT however mean that you must be subjected to people treating you poorly always in this life. I have found that I can bring my karma to a close quicker when I look at relationships and situations directly face on and carefully analyze what I am learning from each. We do not have to be a victim to this, especially because you have chosen a helping profession and are doing good, which in the laws of karma says that good should come your way. Sometimes just recognizing these lessons allows us to complete the cycle. XO
