Karma and Punishment: Really?

nirvanaOver the few blogs, we’ve been discussing karma and the notion that somehow karma is a punishment.

Are we being punished because of karma?

The mythology states that if we lived a bad life in a previous lifetime, then we will be punished in future lifetimes.  Often I hear people say about their current life that isn’t going well, “I must have done something bad in the past, so I’m being punished for it now.”  This is a false belief –for you are not being punished in this life or any other life for anything you do, due to the law of karma.  Karma is a Sanskrit word for action and the result of that action.  If the action is loving, the result will be loving; if the action deals with fear, then the result will return fear.  In America, we know the law of karma as the law of cause and effect.  You cause something to happen (action) and there is an effect (result) to that action.  Both the law of karma and the law of cause and effect have no personal attributes attached to them – they simply are laws that work, just like the law of gravity.   On planet Earth, the law of gravity will create an action as such: you throw a ball up in the air, it’s going to come down on to the ground.  Simple as that.  What goes up, must come down – essentially in layman’s terms, that is the law of gravity.  If you throw a rock up in the air, and it comes down on someone’s head accidently, the law of gravity isn’t punishing you.  It simply was following its own law.  The rock fell to the earth.  The same is true if you throw a rock deliberately up in the air to purposely come down on someone’s head.  The law remains the same.   Your personal intent to that action however, is a different story.

The law of cause and effect is like this.  The law is simply a law – it is not something that is personally out to cause you punishment or grief or even happiness one way or the other.  It simply is a law.  It is your specific actions that cause the effect that will come back to you.    If you deliberately throw a rock at someone’s head, not only is the law of gravity in effect, but so is the law of cause and effect or law of karma.  The person the rock hit will no doubt feel pain and perhaps either sadness, fear or even anger.  You will cause another person to react to your action.  If the hurt person becomes angry and comes over and punches you in the nose than that is their reaction to your action – not the law of cause and effect or the law of karma punishing you.  Laws can’t punish you—they are simply laws.  It is your actions that cause perceived punishment or reward. Or happiness and love and joy.  It is your actions and the reaction to those actions that are being presented to you.  So how are you showing up?

When you state that the law of karma is now punishing you for something that happened in a past life or present life, this is truly an erroneous statement.  You are not being punished.   You may be experiencing however the consequences of your actions.  If you perceive those consequences to be “punishment” then this is a misconception – for it was your actions that caused the effect that you now look on as punishment.  You may be displacing the blame for your actions to something else beyond your own personal responsibility.

In our next blog, we’re going to look more at this aspect of karma and the misconception of punishment, the reality of responsibility and how the law of karma is now changing.

2012 Ushers In New Law of Responsibilty

Who you were in a past life no longer matters.
In our most recent Live Channeling Event, the Divine Guidance Team said that the Law of Karma is now passé or dead….and it is being replaced with the Law of Responsibility. While many teachers will still cling to the old lessons of karma, the new Law of Responsibility is being put forth since the days of punishing yourself for something you did or didn’t do in a past life time is now over. Instead the job is to be aware of this life time and not cling to old life time behaviors, patterns or digressions.

In fact, the old law of karma is being looked as an excuse – to use for blame of one’s past behaviors. The Law of Responsibility says the past –as in your past lives–doesn’t matter –only the present lifetime matters. How you conduct yourself here and now is the most important act you can act upon.

How are you living your life? Is it with honor and trustworthiness? Or is it in shame and guilt? Are you blaming others for your problems or owning up to your own part in every action you take?

You are the sole creator of your own reality. The Universe and the Creator are listening and watching. How are you living your life? With purpose? With blame? Or something in between?

How responsible are you being for your own life? You may be aware of what or who you were in a past lifetime—but you no longer have to be punished for it nor hold it up as an excuse for this lifetime’s behavior. This new law is both refreshing –and harder to life up to. There are no more excuses; there is no more blaming. There is only you – and your Creator – making this the best life you have to live. It’s time for more responsibility.

Live Channeling Event Brings in New Info

July 8, 2012 was Illuminated Engagements first Live Channeling Event
We held our first Live Channeling Event on Saturday and will declare it a success! You’ll be reading about the information that came through for us by the Divine Guidance Team of Illuminated Engagements here soon. The Team brought in new info on the Law of Karma which is now fading into the distance and is being replaced with the Law of Responsibility. The Law of Responsibility states that you are the sole creator of your own reality and are solely responsible for your own actions, words and deeds.

There’s no more blaming others about your problems here! Wow! A wonderful blessing came through and provided each person present with a clean karmic slate. No more karma to deal with!

We also learned about how and why the Divine Guidance helps us, how we can raise our vibration to better hear and feel the Divine Guidance that is always ours and what the continuing Shift of 2012 and beyond is bringing.

I’ll be busy putting all this information together in different forms of access, including more YouTube videos and MP3 audio tracks.

More Live Channeling Events are being planned now for the near future in the southeastern section of Wisconsin. Each Live Channeling Event is being recorded so the information is captured and can be presented to the public, in various forms, including books, DVDs and Mp3s.

Watch our blogs and upcoming newsletters for more information! Also check us out at our Facebook page: Facebook.com/IlluminatedEngagements for the updates on obtaining these offerings and more IE Divine Guidance Team’s channeled information.

Lots of great information came through for both myself and the audience — and we’ll be bringing it all to you very soon! To make sure you get the latest information, please write to us or subscribe to our blog. Thank you!
