Overcoming Bad Karma

Art Prints

We are often told that we need God to forgive us.

That  is true, but not in the way that we think.

It all comes down to Karma, when we do something that is not acceptable to us and our beliefs, whatever that may be, it leaves a mark on our soul and conscious,leaving something for us to settle at a future period in time.

God is non judging, it is our individual soul that judges and determines right from wrong, we all have free will.

We have hundreds of religions and philosophical beliefs on planet earth, each claiming to be the “way”. By practicing these different religions, we all find a path to our God. If God were a judging type of entity, that would not be true.

We all make what is called mistakes or errors in judgement, this creates karma in our mind.

These “mistakes” or errors in judgment is what we need to come to terms with on an individual basis. Once we have forgiven ourselves, God will forgive us.

Our definition of free will determines we are forgiven when we realize no one is perfect and whatever  we did was done only because of our limited knowledge and understanding at the time. When we gain knowledge, we gain understanding, not only of others but ourselves as well.

It is then we are able to understand and forgive ourselves for our actions.

An Interesting Thought on the Last Days

Art Prints

Written by: Gary Wonning

The Spirit promised that at the end of days everyone will be resurrected  back into their bodies and will hear the purpose of life. It is when souls will be judged according to their deeds.

The  bible  teaches that when Christ returns every soul shall rise from the grave.

I have often read that many believe every soul that has ever incarnated on earth has to return during the twentieth or twenty-first century. Possibly, that day has come, the massive increase in worldwide population could be evidence of it.

The large increase in the population of the earth during this time attests to the fact that may be true. Our earth’s population is definitely been on the rise for the last several hundred years , one reason is that because of advanced  medical  technology  people are leading longer and more productive lives. Many that once died in childbirth or during their early formative years are now living to adulthood and beyond, making it possible for them to learn many more life experiences than they were previously able to .

What if  both trains of thought are correct and are talking about the same event, but from a different angle?

Many religious people, including the Mormons, believe we are in the last days. Several ancient calendars such as the Maya, Hopi, Cherokee and others have recently come to an end. All these signs definitely point to the possibility that we ae indeed in the last days.

Does that mean we are all doomed, or that Christ is finally returning? Maybe or maybe not.

Normally when mankind thinks an event is certain to occur, it never happens. 

Even Nostradamus’s predictions are more accurate in hindsight than foresight, the same can be said of many current sages. The truth is when we become aware of a certain prediction, the mere thought of it changes the outcome.

I don’t believe we are all going to die in the next few years unless death comes to us naturally, like it always has.

Is Christ going to return? I don’t know. What I do know, regardless of whether or not Christ does return, our destiny is determined by what we do, not by what someone else does or doesn’t do.

We are entering a new era, an era of enlightenment. The earth is shifting its perspective, and all souls are also changing their line of thought. In the process, we are all becoming more intuitive, combine that with all the new technology now available and soon it will be hard for any of us to hide our true thoughts from others. This will necessitate us changing our way of thinking.

We are in the last days of Pisces and are entering the age of Aquarius, who knows what the future holds. That is for each and every one of us to determine,regardless of who does or doesn’t return to earth.

Is Karma a Punishment?

Art Prints

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.

Enlightenment

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.

The United States Connection with Hitler’s Extraterrestrials.

Written By : The Bashful Country Boy

 

The only thing that saved our world is that Hitler was defeated and many of his scientists escaped before he could put his sinister plans into operation. As a result , many helped us perfect they very weapons he was working on and we were able to use them against not only Germany, but Japan as well.

As a result , the war was shortened and many lives were saved,bringing freedom to many in the process.

As mentioned, the west,particularly the United States also began making contact with extraterrestrials as well, as evidenced with the Roswell and White Sands incidents. In spite of the denials and cover ups by our government , there are plenty of eyewitnesses that will testify that contact has been made.

Most of us assume the contact has been positive and has lead to many innovations that have improved our lives and made us safer, both militarily and domestically.

This is in all probability true, but what about the dark side, the side Hitler would have been in contact with? Did they just close up shop, pack up their space craft and head for parts unknown after his defeat?

Or did they, and are they, still in communication with some in our own government and others around the globe to wreck havoc as soon as our guard is down?

I would think they are, and judging by the actions of many today, I suspect their influence is a  lot greater than we can imagine or would feel comfortable with.

In the end, we are all responsible for our actions, regardless of the influence others may bring to us, we all know right from wrong.

We are entering a new age, as we all become more enlightened and aware of our increased perceptions, it is our responsibility to create a new world, one where people take pride in their accomplishment,strive to do the best they can, shun government assistance,live by a moral code, and  are once again responsible for their actions and realize that to blame someone else for what they do is pointless, wrong, and simply contradicts every universal law of nature and nature’s God.

Making Things Happen and Letting things Happen

Sell Art Online

It seems there is a very fine line between making things happen and letting things happen.

All the great sages and teachers seem to teach both, and most say you should first pray for what you want and then move your feet.

But, which is the right mode of operation and how do we know when to take action and when to wait for what we want to come about.

This can often be a difficult decision to make and we can worry we are not doing the right thing. We want to create the future we desire , but we also don’t want to do something that will delay it or negate it altogether. Many times we are concerned that what we do will not have the desired outcome.

Probably the best way to handle it is to follow your own heart and your instincts. Many times what we think we want is not in our best interests and the universe has something entirely different planned for us, something more in line with what we really want in life, if we would just let our egos get out of the way.

The best way to get the life we want is to meditate and pray on it, then ask for all this or something better.  In that fashion, we are still in control of our life, but we are leaving the option open for the universe to give us something better, or what we would really desire, then we have the choice to decide what path to take.

After this it is just a matter of letting nature take it’s course, we don’t sit idly by, we work and plan for what we think we  would like. In the process we often discover that isn’t what we really want and thus change our direction to a more suitable goal.

This is where our own instincts come into play, our gut always tells us what is right or wrong, if we only listen. If you get a queasy feeling about something or you begin to think the actions you are about to take aren’t in the best interests of your own welfare, it’s time to back away and chart a new course.

When these time confront you, then it is time to make something happen or let it happen. You in your own heart will know the answer, all you need to do is act on your instincts.

Even when the urges are the most extreme and the universe is supposedly forcing you into action, your inner instincts will take over and you will do , or won’t do whatever is in your best interests.

The decisions we make do affect our live, possibly for a long time, even a life time, however, nothing is permanent an unchangeable. We make these decisions to learn and grow, we can change our course anytime we desire.

Even though it could take a lifetime to change our life after a so-called bad decision we need to remember we made that decision for a reason and we will learn much from it.

When the lesson is learned there is always  another chance or lifetime.

Getting What we Desire in Life

This blog is the result of my own thoughts combined with those of an unknown author. The thoughts are not all mine, although I do agree with them and wish to thank the original author  for most of the content.

I recently finished reading,”The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown, author of the DaVinci Code. A fascinating book in it’s own right. The book finally brought out in the last chapter what life is all about. It fully explains how we can achieve all we want and need in life.

And as is true with most profound discoveries, the answer is so simple and easy to discover it is overlooked by almost everyone,and understood by even fewer people.

We always assume that all profound and great truths need to be complicated and hard to comprehend, hidden from all but the elite. Most often, truth is right under our nose and in plain sight, and very often, as my mother would always say,” if it was a snake, it would bite you”.

The truth is that the Universe has been answering your wants and desires all  your life, but you cannot receive the correct answers unless you are aware.  Be aware of everything around you, because you are receiving the answers to your questions in every moment of the day.  The channels those answers can come through are varied and unlimited.  They can be delivered in the form of a newspaper headline that attracts your attention, or overhearing someone speaking, or a song on the radio, or signage on a truck passing by, or receiving a sudden inspiration. All we need to do is remember to remember, and become aware!

The rest is easy.

I have found on my own life and in others’ lives that we do not think well of ourselves or love ourselves completely.  To not love ourselves can keep what we want from us. By not loving ourselves, we are literally pushing what we desire  away from us.

We have been conditioned by society and those around us too often expect the worse, and even some think we need to repay all karma before we can deserve all the good that should be available to us. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

We could never repay all the supposedly “bad” karma we have built up over the past. Very often, while paying off one karmic debt, other debt is accumulated, it can be an endless cycle. We need to remember as we are experiencing life, others are also interacting with us and learning their own life lessons.

The key to repaying our karmic debts, is not to just repay it, but to forgive ourselves and others in the process. Because of our so-called bad karma, others have learned as well.

reality

We each create our own reality

Everything we want, whatever it may be, is motivated by love regardless of if we realize it or not. It is to experience the feelings of love  in having those things–youth, money, the perfect person, job, body, or health.  To attract the things we love we must transmit love, and those things will appear immediately.

The catch is, to transmit the highest frequency of love, you must love yourself, and that can be difficult for many.  If you focus on the outside and what you see now, you  trip yourself up, because what you see and feel about you now is the result of what you have thought in the past.  

To love yourself fully, you must focus on a new dimension of You.  You must focus on the “Golden Source” inside of You.  Take a moment and sit still.  Focus on feeling the soul, or life presence located near the heart chakra.  As you focus on the presence within, it will begin to reveal itself to You.  It is a feeling of pure love and bliss, and it is perfection.  That presence is the perfection of You.  That presence is the real You.  As you focus on that presence, as you feel, love, and praise that presence, you will love yourself fully, quite possibly for the first time in your life.

Any time you look at yourself with critical eyes, switch your focus immediately to the presence within, and its perfection will reveal itself to You.  As you do this, all imperfections that have manifested in your life will dissolve, because imperfections cannot exist in the light of this presence.  Whether you want to regain perfect eyesight, dissolve disease and restore well-being, turn poverty into abundance, reverse aging and degeneration, or eradicate any negativity, focus on and love the presence within you and perfection will manifest.

The absolute truth is that the “I” is perfect and complete;

the real “I” is spiritual and can therefore never be less than

perfect; it can never have any lack, limitation, or disease
