Following yesterday’s blog on Karma, today I will share with you the 12 Laws of Karma.
To stop being afraid and to start being empowered in the worlds of karma and reincarnation, here is what you need to know about karmic laws.
The wheel of karma is of the notion that everything in our life takes place due to past actions and that present actions affect future lifetimes.
You can use the laws of karma to create success in your life. It’s all about choices, and it states that as you sow shall you reap, but a hundred times over. Your world is 100% the result of your previous actions, words and thoughts.
- The Great Law
Whatever we pour into the universe will come back to us. The simple explanation of the great law is: our thoughts and actions have consequences – good or bad. If what we want is Happiness, Peace, Love & Friendship, then we should BE a Happy, Peaceful, Loving and a True Friend.
- The Law of Creation
Life does not HAPPEN by itself. We need to make it happen. The life we see around us was created by our own intentions. And since what we surround ourselves with, becomes part of us, it’s our responsibility to ensure these surroundings are conducive to our desires.
- The Law of Humility
Simply put one must accept something in order to change it. Acceptance is a near-universal virtue in many belief systems. What you refuse to accept will continue for you. In focusing on the negative instead of making changes to address the negative, we’re committing to a zero-sum result.
- The Law of Growth
When we change ourselves, only then do our lives change. Our own growth is in our hands. It’s not the circumstance, or the people, or the things that will change. ‘ME’ is the only person, I have control over, above any other circumstance. True change only occurs if we make the commitment to change what is in our heart.
- The Law of Responsibility
Our lives are of our own doing, nothing else. The mirror we stand before shows us our own true reflection. When there is turbulence in one’s own life, there is often turbulence within us. If we’re to change our life, we must change our mind set & our surroundings. We must take responsibility for what is in our lives.
- The Law of Connection
The past, present and future are all connected. Everything in the universe is connected. As such, we must put in the work to change these connections if we desire something different.
- The Law of Focus
We cannot think of two different things at the same time. Relating to our spiritual growth, we cannot have both, negative thoughts and actions, and expect to get positive results. We must give our full attention to achieve any desired task.
- The Law of Giving and Hospitality
Our behaviour should match our thoughts and actions, demonstrating our selflessness and show our true intentions. Selflessness is a virtue. Without a selfless nature, true spiritual growth is nearly impossible.
- The Law of Here and Now
One cannot be in the present time if we are continuously looking backwards. The present is all we have. Looking back regretfully robs oneself of a present opportunity. Old thoughts and patterns of behaviour totally negate the present chance to advance ourselves.
- The Law of Change
History will continue to repeat itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path. Conscious commitment to change is the only method of influencing the positive energies to direct it to fruitful outcome.
- The Law of Patience and Reward
Nothing of value is created without a patient mind set. Toiling away cannot be avoided through wishful thinking. Our rewards are claimed only through patience and persistence, nothing else. True lasting joy comes from the knowledge of doing what’s necessary. The reward to come in on its own time.
- The law of Significance and Inspiration
The best reward is the one that contributes to the Whole. You get back from something whatever YOU have put into it. You feed love, you will get love, you feed hatred and you are served hatred. Energy and intentions are vital apparatuses that decide the significance of an end-result.
“Karma is the law of cause and effect – an unbreakable law of the cosmos. Your actions create your future. The reason your fate is never sealed is because you have free will. Therefore your future cannot already be written. That would not be fair. Life gives you chances. This is one of them.” – The Tree of Awakening.
