(LM Q&A) (Metaphysics) Does Karma exist or not?
Thanks for looking deeply at this universal law of mind. It has been written: "As you sow, so shall you reap," "Giving and receiving are the same," "What goes around comes around," "Cause and effect are one and there is no gap." This one universal law of mind has seemed to bring harm and destruction to the mind which seems to sleep and dream of a separate world of unreality. Yet this one universal law is the key to forgiveness. If you realize that you always choose your state of mind and that what you choose you choose for the whole universe, the belief in victimization has been undone. Misuse of a divine law seems to result in miscreation until the realization dawns that in Truth it is IMPOSSIBLE to misuse or miscreate. What God creates is Spirit and Spirit creates only Spirit. If you follow this divine logic then there is the experience of Enlightenment: Truth is True. Love is Real. Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.
The body was a symbol of a separate self that could never be. The enlightened mind sees the tapestry of the forgiven world in which no object or specific exists "in and of itself." Illusions are one, and thus the illusion of a "body" and the illusion of a "time-space cosmos" are the same illusion. In forgiveness, there is nothing that is "still hanging out,” for perception has integrated and is whole. There is nothing outside the mind, and the cosmos reflects the Light of Heaven. Only a blessing remains and distortion has gone.
Since karma is a universal law, the only meaningful question is "What is it for?" What will you use karma for: to demonstrate that healing is accomplished or to maintain the wish to be separate? The first use is inevitable and the second use is impossible. It is best to accept the inevitable and release the attempt to make the impossible possible. Such is simplicity, for Enlightenment is simple.
In Heaven God and Christ, Cause and Effect are One. From the Holy Spirit's Perspective mind is unified and cannot be broken apart. The law of karma can therefore release or imprison the mind based upon the mind's use of this universal law of mind. Purpose is the only choice. Which purpose would you have it serve: love or fear? When you align with the Holy Spirit your Answer is Love. And the experience which comes from aligning with God is so obvious that you will never doubt again.
Peace be with you always, David
How can I overcome my ego when others persecute me?
It is the Holy Spirit which flushes up into consciousness anything unlike God's Love, so that the erroneous scraps of ego may be released forever. The ego is the belief that it is possible to be unfairly treated, persecuted, or that it is possible for anything to happen to OneSelf apart from One's Will. God's Will for All is Perfect Happiness and Christ shares God's Will. The ego is the belief that it is possible to have a will apart from God and Christ, a private will that can make and control what God does not even know about. The world reflects the belief that it is possible to be unfairly treated or persecuted, yet Christ Calls the mind to remember the invulnerability of Spirit and our Home in God. True defenselessness is a reflection of certainty of Identity. Christ is not a concept, for Christ is real. Christ as Spirit needs no defense, for Spirit cannot BE attacked. A concept of self-identity as a body seems capable of being attacked, yet the body identity is the illusion to be released.
To believe the impossible is difficult. It is actually easier to forgive the impossible, and this is the Plan of Awakening. The Holy Spirit helps a deceived mind loosen its fixed belief in the reality of the perceived time-space cosmos, and what remains is the Eternal Self which God creates Eternally.
Miracles light the way, for experience must reach awareness which shows that there truly is a replacement for this world. I am joined with you in this experience, for the ego cannot prevail against the truth of it.
As I shared in a recent post, the Holy Spirit is the "how." With willingness to forgive or release illusion, this becomes increasingly apparent. The Spirit within is always the Answer, regardless of the seeming question. Trust in the Holy Spirit and everything will seem helpful to you for undoing the ego, for what a mind sows it reaps—immediately.
I Love You forever and ever, David
