The topic “karma” has caused confusion among you and was often not quite understood, so I would like to use this chapter to deal with this.
First of all, the word “karma” has often been brought in connection with guilt. Some even say that everything someone does “wrong”, leads to more and more karma, leading to a vicious circle of inescapable karma. Some also say that the “score” needs to be evened out, that your account of “negative karma” must be evened out with “positive karma” by good deeds. This is not my definition of karma, as I simply define it as the effect of an action.
In Chapter 1.2.3 we became aware that energy is indestructible, and when we use our energies to cause low energies, then this low energy will exist until it is changed. When you meet your fellow humans with meanness of any kind, e.g. hate, judgment, jealousy, or any other low emotion, thought or action, then low energies or tensions are created. These tensions will continue to exist, and can remain with you until they get dissolved. They even continue after your life on earth and can exist for many incarnations until they finally get dissolved. These continuing energies, tensions, as effects of your actions, thoughts or emotions are what I call karma. The karma that is with you right now may be from this life and from former lives. There are very, very few humans that start a life without any “old” karma. Almost everyone of you has been misled by low emotions and through that caused these tensions. Many of you have – in certain incarnations – caused physical or emotional pain or even disrespected life and took it from another being. Many crimes, many wars have happened in the course of mankind’s history. Many of those beings that committed these acts, or are committing such acts right now, are among you. I do not want to burden you with guilt or a bad conscience for something in the past, because also such acts are part of your experiences, are important for your development and should be accepted as such. Now is the time to forgive all those, whose victim you were, because only this way all the karma that connects you can be dissolved. Also, realize that the experience of being “victim” was indeed an important part in your soul’s development, and thus need not be labeled as a “bad experience”, as it has been beneficial to your soul, although very uncomfortable whilst experiencing it.
When you forgive each other, and you truly do this with your heart, then your karma can be freed, because the low connections, the tensions, can get dissolved with this expression of love, and the low energies can be changed. As not every human on earth is going to read these words and follow them, there will be beings that you did harm to who did not forgive you. It is your turn to ask for forgiveness, maybe in silence or in a meditation. This can also work, as the souls of those who you did harm to can forgive, even if they never express this to you. Without forgiveness these tensions can also be removed by reparation, by serving those people in a special way, and this service is an expression of love which dissolves the karma, and should not be seen as “repayment”, rather allowing love to be expressed in a way that the soul can recognize its meaning, thus the symbolic “reparation”. However karma can also be dissolved through special spiritual work (see chapter 4.4).
