and an abundance of financial resources aren’t at odds, despite what you may
have been led to believe.
Yet select situations
involving money may have you wondering if it’s something that will make you
obtain adverse karma or not.
realize that, for example, not taking an absolute vow of poverty won’t put you
in karma jail, associated subconscious fears and impressions, including past
life ones involving such vows, are sometimes tough to overcome.
nothing shocking about the notion that exploiting others with your financial
power will land you negative karma in proportion to the misapplication of
energy. Use your pecuniary might to block another person’s success or otherwise
attempt to wreck their plans, for example, and you automatically schedule for
yourself compensation of the wicked sort, even if it takes 1000 years or more
to catch up to you.
Our over two
decades of empirical research involving predetermination and karma tell us that
zero negative karma is gained in relation to the below seven circumstances.
on hedonistic pursuits such as expensive fine dining and drinking. Doing so once
in a while won’t push you into bad karma territory, in the least. But remember
that abuse of food or alcohol can make you incur terrible karma, so don’t
overdo it too much or too often, and avoid putting anyone at risk.
requests to donate to a social or political cause. Don’t worry about it; if you
don’t feel like donating, put your money to some other use. Rejecting a request
for a donation won’t dent your karma scorecard. Avoid letting anyone guilt you
3. Having a
net worth of a million dollars, billion dollars, trillion dollars, or more. As
long as you acquire your money honorably, you gain zero bad karma. Think of all
the good you can do with it.
possible to pick up bad karma through the mere resentment of the wealthy. You
can’t become what you resent, so to begrudge people of means just for their
wealth is to block one’s future prosperity.
unfortunate that those who inherit wealth are so frequently ridiculed. Our
findings show that they have earned their legacy. The universe is perfectly
fair and just, from a spiritual perspective, when you consider the law of
right action now and always is the best way to direct your future life destiny,
even though your destiny in this life is unalterable.
donating to an official charity. While it’s true that you gain a lot of good
karma by giving to those in need, aren’t most people in need? There are many
ways other than donating cash to help others—giving your time, advice, love,
etc. It’s perfectly acceptable to give to individuals or groups instead of to
an official charity with a bloated bureaucracy.
5. Ignoring a panhandler on
the street as you walk by. Even if he or she really appears to be in need and
gives you a spiteful look as you refuse to offer your spare change, you’re free
of any negative karma by doing so. Help the less fortunate when it feels right,
not when you are pressured.
6. Spending all your disposable
income on concerts, luxury trips, art, jewelry, or other non-essentials instead
of helping those who are disadvantaged. Keep in mind that you aren’t obligated
to take care of anyone, aside from your parental or legal commitments. While
it’s true that you could be chalking up some heavy-duty positive karma by
helping others, nothing negative will come to you from extravagant spending on
yourself. Just because you have more money than someone else, it doesn’t mean
that you owe them. But remember to avoid any false guilt, as it can drag you
into negative karma territory.
7. Gambling. As
long as you’re not avoiding your financial obligations or losing money you
don’t have, you incur no negative karma through gambling. Gambling itself does
not cause personal disasters; addiction does, and addiction can involve
anything. It’s your money and if you want to gamble with it, you won’t pick up
any bad karma.
There’s nothing negative about financial abundance when you aren’t harming yourself or anyone else.
