What is Karma?

When you experience a setback,
never think your evolution has gone backward.

Understand, karma has been delivered.
By moving through it, you move beyond it.

This world of relativity was born out of the Transcendent. Modern physicists look at that as the Big Bang theory. Really, the Big Bang theory is going on perpetually. In the final analysis, the only thing that exists is the Unified Field. Nowadays, many modern physicists are starting to recognize the Unified Field is a field of pure Consciousness.

When Consciousness became conscious of itself, it perceived itself as other. In that moment, duality was born. Consciousness became aware of that duality, a third thing was born, and it cascaded out into a structure. That structure is called the Quantum Mechanical Realm, from the perspective of modern physics, and the Veda, from the perspective of the ancient seers. That structure is captivating. It is dazzling. It is a-mazing. It interacts with itself. We see patterns in it and we can even lose our sense of self to those patterns, to those structures—it bubbles.

We become lost to the dazzle to the point we lose the sense of wholeness. When the dazzle becomes so alluring that our appreciation of the wholeness value becomes fragmented, simplified, and undermined, then actions cease to be in accord with that wholeness, the totality of harmony. When this happens, karma is created, distortion, and action. Karma is action. So, when we think of karma, we are really thinking of the fruits of action, the result of action: our negative karma or our good karma. Nevertheless, they are the fruits of action. Action takes place in relativity largely by virtue of the dazzle and the allure of the illusion.

When we meditate, we re-enliven that wholeness value in our awareness. It permeates up through our being, and any distortions are then purified out and thrown off. So, our actions become more in harmony with the wholeness value, or they say, in harmony with natural law.

From within the dynamic of relativity, it is tough to find your way out of the maze. We see all kinds of patterns, all kinds of rationales, all kinds of rationale-izations. And they can be consistent with some facets of nature. They are all realities. There are an infinite number of simultaneously valid realities.

As a species, the way we try to evolve is we attempt to find a reality we can align with that will answer our questions or make life better. We do it in the arena of personal development; psychology; science, physics, and engineering; but it is all fragmented. It comes from the amazement of some facet or quality of the maze. However, it is not in context. We have lost sight of the wholeness value.

Even though we can make advancements with that reality, it further fragments us. It keeps us fragmented. But it is an echo of that wholeness value. There is truth to it. It is a reality. So we go in that direction. It is self-justifying because it is a truth, it is a reality, and we dedicate ourselves to it. We can make certain advancements. We create electric lights or we do personal process techniques that seem to improve our life in some way, shape, or form, but really it is another dangling carrot. It is another mirage. It is another cog in the Wheel of Karma that goes from identity to identity to identity to identity. Do you see how tricky it is? It is very tricky.

Karma moves like a current in the sea… like the flow of the wind on a chaotic breezy day. It carries you, families, and nations wherever it does.

Feeling into someone’s karma may prompt you to warn them or inform them of what you feel and see. You may just think you could tell them, “Hey, look at this. Now that you see it, just snap out of it.” But of course, it is not so simple.

Karma overtakes people by casting a spell, by putting them into a sort of trance state. Once in that state, it seems they have no choice but to think, act, and believe in accord with the current of that trance, where ever it leads. At first it is a frightening thing to witness. In time, you understand and act artfully in your dealings with the world of winds of karma.

Why are people so susceptible to the winds of karma? Because we all long to fly. We long for frictionless flow in our lives. In fact, such natural flow is your birthright. Note there are karmic winds yet there is also the Cosmic Flow, the Cosmic Current that is one with the depth and breadth of all that is. A frictionless Divine Current underlies all that is, just as the silent stillness at the depth of the ocean underlies all the chaotic waves on the surface.

Your physiology is designed to evolve. It evolved into existence. Evolution is its way, its nature, its sustenance in life. Evolution culminates with a Being who has caught the Cosmic Wave, the natural flow of one’s Divine Essence.

The physiology evolves in that direction. It longs for the Cosmic Wave. Yet all along the way, karmic waves ensnare your life through that same mechanic of the physiology… the longing to catch The Wave.

Your affinity for your karma is really just misplaced trust. You long for God. As a result of that longing, you grasp at karmic waves, which then capture you and carry wherever they do, throughout the ages.

I implore you. Do not stop until you find the Cosmic Wave and allow it to catch your sail.

There is within you a place that knows the wholeness value. When you rest there sincerely, honestly, and openly, you are clean. You have wisdom. This is called innocence.

It is most vulnerable. Usually, you keep it hidden from the world. You show it only when you choose to. When you do show it, you often cloak it in one manner or another. Perhaps you couch it in humor. Maybe defend it with anger or sarcasm. Maybe hide it with denial. Maybe mask it with niceties.

How you hold that within determines the nature of your inner thoughts. That is the attitude and relationship you hold with the world. That colors your being. That, more than anything else, determines the nature of your karma.

JMeditation is where you rest into the wholeness value so that value can well up, permeate your life, and free you. That is why they call it spiritual liberation. It is really more about liberation than grabbing onto anything or attaining anything. It is liberating your being from conditioning and identities, even those things you thought were truth, those things you worked so hard to learn.

At some point, you realize truth is not a concretion. It is not something you can hang onto. It is not a notion; it is not a belief system; it is not an identity. It is No-thing-ness. Pure Is-ness. Pure Consciousness. The Abstraction that dwells at the depth of your being. That is God. That is divine. But it can’t be grabbed onto. If you try to grab onto it, it slips through your fingers. To name it is to compromise it. It is beyond thing-ness…

Emancipation from limitation
reveals your God to you.

Conditioned conscience is karma.
Emancipated conscience is
God’s whispers of your dharma.

Yet, the latter is attained
through the portal of the former…
Just as the swan filters the milk from the water.

You must start where you are.
Life is all about having a healthy relationship with…
Evolution is the path of paradox.
