Why is my life the way it is? This film tries to answer this question.
Until you have resolved your Karma and fulfilled your Dharma, which are the deeds you must do, you will continue to reincarnate into sequential lifetime upon the earth. Neither God nor the Lords of Karma bestow suffering upon you during these lives, you and you alone decide what you most need to learn and in your earthly sojourns, and for each life experience you seek out other souls, often with shared histories, and always with Karmic configurations matching your needs. Whenever you act with intention you create Karma. Actions are considered to be thoughts, emotions, words and deeds, and the motive, desire and intent behind each. Disharmonious acts must be balanced in the future in this life or in a future lifetime, to have Soul growth.
Many spiritual teachers claim that karma is like debts owed. Sometimes there are positive debts, “Good Karma,” and sometimes there are negative debts, “Bad Karma.”
But ultimately there is no “Good Karma” because, like any debt owed, it still is just a debt that has to be repaid.
An example of “Good Karma” is when we do good deeds with the expectation, implied or explicit, of some kind of reward. This is like the pay-in-advance principle. By having the expectation of repayment, we’re setting ourselves up for the debt to be paid back later, either in the future of this life, or in a future life.
The trap then becomes when the expectation remains unfulfilled. It becomes our own expectations that tie us to people, places or events lifetime after lifetime.
I’ll sometimes have clients that feel that their children owe them for all that they’ve done and the sacrifices that they’ve made. As a result, the parent is left sad and unfulfilled when their efforts go unrecognized.
Again, it’s the “expectation” that creates the karma. And it’s these same unfulfilled expectations that lead to unhappiness. For one person it may be a child and for another it may be a spouse, lover, business partner, etc.
The answer, of course, is when doing good deeds (such as acts of charity) to do so without expectations. This attitude leads to no karmic affects.
So even “Good Karma” isn’t something to be desired in life. The enlightened view is always to neutralize all karma.
Contrary to common misunderstanding, Bad Karma isn’t when you do something bad to someone then they will do something bad to you. Bad Karma is when you do some Action to someone and you then feel guilty or responsible for committing that action.
The important point here is that it becomes your own Guilt, Blame, Shame or other emotions that keep you indebted to repay for the actions that you’ve committed, even when those actions are from a previous lifetime.
So if you do something “bad” to someone, and if you feel responsible for what you’ve done, you’ve now incurred “Bad Karma”. If that person whom you did something “bad” to feels the need for revenge, the two of you might even plan a life together where he has the opportunity of taking his revenge and for you to be released from your guilt.
