Do you believe in Karma? is their any God or Bad Karma?

    Karma influences our current life in two ways. First, we carry karma as part of our life conditions, though not all of our conditions are karmic in origin. Karma is the part of our conditions that represents unfinished business and other residues from the past. Second, we create future karma continually with every thought and action.

    As an individuated part of Spirit there will be particular areas of growth necessary for our personal evolution. There are also areas in which we may best contribute to the growth of Spirit in its totality. Sometimes karma thrusts us into diametrically opposite conditions than we previously experienced.

    The first step in dealing with existing karma is awareness and acknowledgement of it. Are there any themes that seem to recur throughout your life? Nothing happens by chance. Recurrent themes suggest the hand of karma. These recurrent themes are telling you they are providing conditions for some necessary life experience.

    This experience may be obvious to you, but where it is not you may need to ask Spirit for guidance through prayer, meditation, or through your dreams.

    Once you understand the karmic themes of your incarnation you can start working with them, ie swim with the tide rather than against it. If you find it hard to acquire or hold money, you need to practice good money management. If you find it hard to make friends you need to be that bit nicer to others� If you're not sure how to work with your karma, ask for guidance and be open to the answers.

    The second aspect of karma is that it is being created all the time. Every act of will, every thought, is a karmic act. By acting in accordance with our Spiritual purpose in particular and Spiritual principles in general we create good karma for tomorrow. But good karma doesn't mean material success; it is concerned with Spiritual progress and making one's soul available to more advanced lessons rather than continually repeating grade 1.

    Do unto others as you would have others do unto you Matthew 7-120

    Karma works at a more immediate level by returning to you what you give to others. There's nothing particularly mystical about this. If you're friendly to others, you receive friendship. If you're generous, people are more inclined to be generous to you.


    QUESTION: how would you react to this statement? Do you believe in this?

      I'm curious as to why you copy and paste whole slabs of content from other sites to start forum threads.

      brokegerman - this is spam. And it doesn't belong to you. All you are doing is persuading us you are no good at what you claim to be good at.

        For someone touting themselves to being recognized as one of the top business and life coaches in North America today he doesn't seem to have an fracking clue.

    If life is just so predictable, everybody will become good guys....

    because I see a rich and evil man live happily until death.....and a good guy languished in poverty  and sadness

    Thank goodness for that Mark,

    I was reading the same thing over at new-age-spirituality.com that was just about word for word on the thread and thought my browser was broken.

    What german has posted here was actually copied, word for word, from this url:

    http://www.karmadirectory.com/karma-directory.htm

    This article was actually written by "J. Finnis". That wasn't very nice, german.

    And there's a google adsense advertisement entitled:

    "Law Of Attraction Scam
    Dont Buy Another Law Of Attraction Product Until You Have Seen This"

    German, why does this advertisement say this? Is it talking about your book?

    Terence - this is just a typical spammer who has read an ebook entitled, "How to use forums to generate massive amounts of traffic to your website." lol

    He is not looking for a dialogue.

    He might be back to defend himself, but I doubt it. They rarely do, but it is fun when it happens big_smile

      Thanks for the heads up, Mark. There is indeed so much to learn here on the internet.

    If this post was spam (and I don't know what else it would be, though if it is, I'm not sure what the point is...), then the spammer should learn to spell! "Is their any God or Bad Karma?" should be "Is THERE any GOOD or Bad Karma?" Well, I do believe in Karma and have found that when I help other people, I feel good, and eventually I believe it comes back to me. As to this spammer, I hope there is Bad Karma as well... I clicked through to his profile and wonder if the picture of "him" is stolen as well... any ideas on how we could find out?

      I ran a Whois check on german. He hasn't been blacklisted yet but he's lost almost 2 miilion points on his Alexa rating over the past 3 months. Here's his IP adress if you want to run a check on him, too.
