Worst Spiritual Myth of All Time: Thinking You can Skip Your Karma and Create Whatever You Want
It never ends. Inspirational
speakers and New Age authors
routinely attempt to get you to ride
the “If you can believe, you can achieve anything” train.
“All you have to do is let
go of your fears, work hard, and the
world is yours,” say the best-selling
authors (and the vast majority of
their income is from the inspiration they
They have existed since the
dawn of commerce, and you’ll hear
about magic wand solutions forever because people are hungry
for quick-fix solutions.
Meanwhile, the tenets of fate, predestination, immutable personal adversity (the
tough stuff in your life you can’t
change or avoid), and karma are
ridiculed by the New Age Elite as being “fatalistic” and “not congruent
with the current state of the
world since things are changing so
Does anyone truly believe
that it’s fair to flat-out reject the theories
of predetermination and
immutable karma with little or no
Although it’s highly amusing,
it’s also utterly demeaning to
discount unique personal adversity
and life circumstances and proclaim
that anyone can have big-time
financial success, for example. “Big
money acquisition is a skill and
anyone can learn it, just like I
did.” All you have to do is diligently
follow the “Internet Big Money Design” program and you’re set. Unfortunately, they won’t
tell you how to manifest the lucky (predetermined) breaks the
author enjoyed along the way, among other trifling details
(magic wand sold separately).
It doesn’t seem possible to
express a greater amount of conceit.
There appears to be a great lack
of humility in today’s New Age and
Internet marketing marketplaces.
Our theory that at least 75%
of the key events and circumstance
in your life are predestined
was solidified through over 25
years of empirical research.
Although it’s not the most appealing
spiritual tenet, we would much rather
tell you what we believe is the
truth rather than sell you
illusion just to make a buck.
By all means, keep striving for your hopes and dreams, but it’s recommended to get to know yourself to the point where you are establishing realistic goals.
The Fundamentals of Your Future Are Fixed
we believe you have a good
amount of freedom to create to
your heart’s desire within your predetermined,
karmic framework, our
findings show very clearly that the
core elements of your future are
not “constantly vacillating, depending
on your thoughts…”
Why is it fixed, you ask? Because your soul (not your personality) chose your main path in life, with all of its related challenges and rewards so that you would learn the lessons (we hope) for which you incarnated.
You Must Ask the Magic Wand Crowd These Questions
To those who claim to have miraculously deleted their karma without having to directly balance it, ask these questions: How did you measure it, how did you know it was karma, and if it really was karma, how do you know that the karma simply didn’t run its course?
Enduring karma is like drinking alcohol. Once you get drunk (incarnate on Earth), there’s no turning back. You must wait until the effects of the booze diminish, just as you must undergo the spiritual game-plan in store for you this time around (that includes rewarding karma).
Although most of us must continue the karmic grind, we propose to those who have advanced to avatar status (e.g., Jesus, et al.) to send healing illumination and Light our way so that we may always receive our spiritual lessons with infinite graciousness.
