3. The Universe and Karma
As a believer in both, this has really helped me in my life. Both Universe and Karma really put things in perspective.
The Universe has laws that we are not in control of because they’re controlled I believe by a higher power, The All, Energy/Spirit or God in regards to many religions/perspectives.
The All (meaning everything imaginable) is so complex that it is hard to find balance in our lives. This can be a constant struggle everyday for some of us.
The Universe has Polarity/Duality in everything, both sides of the coin lets say. Such as the famous Ying-Yang to simpler soft/hard, on/off, good/bad etc…
Now the choices we make about where to place these inevitable realities into our lives are what shape our current state of mind and lifestyle. Correct use or balance of these energies put us in a better place emotionally and incorrect balance often lead us to Stress/Emotions.
This is a complicated topic but will go briefly over one of many points. Karma is one of the ways to find balance in alignment with the Universe and alleviate stress.
The ways we act and go about making our choices are what will define our Karma. The famous phrase “What goes around comes around” comes to mind when karma comes up but in both positive and negative energies.
For people that are not familiar with the term, it basically means: (in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
I believe that the positive/negative energy we give out to the universe, will ultimately come back to us somehow and this can contribute to our peace of mind. It sounds simple enough in theory but in practice, this is a much harder reality to deal with.
A 100% Karma believing world would be fantastic because we all would be responsible for our own actions. When we do something wrong to someone or something, we basically would be doing it to ourselves because at one point we will have to take back that energy we just gave out. The same applies if we do good, then ultimately we will receive all the blessings to come in time.
Having a hard time dealing with stress? This week, help someone, say something nice, be kind, see your equal in someone and treat them the way you’d like to be treated. Your positive touch will spread through the Universe like a domino effect. Just like the journey of a $20 bill on a day in New York, it goes through so many hands and helps out so many people.
Have a blessed week, this is part of my karma I’m sending out to you. As always, thanks for reading!
Next in the series, we’ll touch on “Reaction and Response”. The way we deal with everyday situations.
