Happenings in life, whether good or bad often leave us stunned with unexpected results. We may react with statements such as “Wow, I really did not expect to pass this exam or get this job, but I did!” or something like “life does not seem fair, no matter how hard I try, I am not successful at anything”.
There are other proverbs that reflect this feeling; “you reap what you sow” or “the golden rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.
Unexplained animosity or friendliness from people, winning a lottery or losing big money in business, surviving fatal accidents or the innocent victim in various scenarios, unsuccessful relationships, and emotional disturbances….all of this can be explained in two words: Karmic account.
What we are experiencing today is a result of our past actions, be it this birth or previous births and what we will experience in future is being decided by us now.
Since our present is a product of the past and is also going to decide our future, every word, action and even thoughts on a subtle level have to be chosen carefully every moment.
So when someone is giving us a hard time or being rude or hostile, we know it is the law of karma, the unwritten law of nature at work. How does this knowledge help?
Firstly, we stop blaming our self or others for the situation we are in. Instead of sending the same negative energy back at them, we can rise above the situation by sending positive vibrations of peace and spiritual love at them.
This will help us break that particular cycle of karma and stay balanced. This does not mean we take a passive approach to the situation; we continue our efforts and seek professional help if and when necessary.
The karmic account can take the form of bhog (serious illness). This is one way of paying off our karmic debt. Being in Yog (union) i.e. staying connected with God and having faith in and love for Him is another way of settling our Karmic account.
This unambiguous spiritual law has been defined as being accurate, beneficial and unbiased.
It takes a lot of meditative contemplation to understand this, especially in hurtful situations. However, accepting this law of action and reaction will help us stay centered and alleviate the situation.
