Is Karma a Punishment?

When people first become involved in esoteric studies, they wonder  if karma is real .

Many times they find it hard to accept the fact they are responsible for everything they experience. Many have always placed blame on someone else or God for all their misfortunes. thereby relieving themselves of all responsibility. It make life much easier.

Yes, karma is real and is in place to balance universal laws. Our creator gave us free will so that we may create a life  we want.  It is for us to determine  if it is a positive life or a so called negative life style.

It is our choice to align ourselves with the laws of nature, or Nature’s God.  This determines the quality of the energy we receive from “Source”.

Karma is only an energy balance between cause and effect. It was  not created to  punish us. We have created karma by our own actions , words and thoughts. We can blame no one.

Every action, word and deed is recorded in our akashic records, or energy field. This  will reflect  the quality of the energy we receive. It isn’t something we humans created, yet, we cannot escape the consequences of our actions .

Every event we encounter in  life is  created by our own thoughts and desires. If these events are something minor or a larger more significant event, they are by our choosing alone. 

All our decisions, from deciding to have a hot fudge sundae or a banana split, to major events in our life such as contracting disease or other calamities  is  due to our free will.

As we disregard the laws of nature, our vibrational fields are lowered, and because like attracts like, we attract like energy thereby attracting events and souls to us that would have a negative effect on our progression.

Returning to “Source” just means we once again regain contact with our higher intelligence.

As we do so, we once again begin to release all the negative karma we have attracted .  Once this is complete, we begin to move into a higher vibration and consciousness.

Once we begin to  align ourselves with divine conscious and the integrity of universal laws, our vibrations evolve. and we begin to generate actions that enable our soul to progress.  Once we choose not to take part in the unconscious behavior patterns that lead to creating more bad karma, our life begins to improve.

Once we move out of this pattern, we will begin to raise our vibrational frequency. This shift in our energy field will change the quality of our life circumstances and what is created for ourselves in the future based on the law of cause and effect.

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search,at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source. I began taking notes for this book over thirty years ago, at the time, writing a book was the farthest thing from my mind. My only thought was to have a journal to read over when I got older. As a result, I didn’t record some of my references, many of the references were from Aboriginal and Mayan elders themselves, many of which has been the victim of the ravages of time. Hence my book is short on references, but long on experience.

Available in both Hard Copy and EBook Format.
