KARMA – It is neither optional nor negotiable!

Karma
It is neither optional nor negotiable

The Sowing and the Reaping, Cause and Effect, Do unto Others…

I did a video on Karma a while back when first getting my feet wet in doing these Yogi Theosophy videos, sitting there, in the woods paraphrasing what I understood of the teachings at the time. The continuous study and application of this immutable Law of Equilibrium and Balance, Absolute and Fixed ~ has certainly made an indelible impression upon me and affects most every way I live my everyday life.

It is as described in “The Key to Theosophy” as “The Ultimate Law of the Universe, the source, origin and fount of all other laws which exist throughout Nature. Karma is the unerring law which adjusts effect to cause, on the physical, mental and spiritual planes of being.”

And…

“Karma creates nothing, nor does it design. It is man who plans and creates causes, and Karmic law adjusts the effects; which adjustment is not an act but universal harmony, tending ever to resume its original position, like a bough, which, bent down too forcibly, rebounds with corresponding vigour.”

Sages through the ages have given us some very sagacious advice:

“Do not do to others what angers you if done to you by others.”
~ Socrates

“With what measure you mete it shall be measured to you again.”
~ Matthew 7:2

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
~ Luke 6:31

“You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”
~ Buddha

“Watch your thoughts, they become words;
watch your words, they become actions;
watch your actions, they become habits;
watch your habits, they become character;
watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

~ Lao Tsu, (…and some say FRANK OUTLAW,
the late President of Bi-Lo Supermarket Stores)

“Karma is rebirth which is selected and prepared by this mysterious, inexorable, but in the equity and wisdom of its decrees infallible LAW, that the sins of the previous life of the Ego are punished. Only it is into no imaginary Hell, with theatrical flames and ridiculous tailed and horned devils, that the Ego is cast, but verily on to this earth, the plane and region of his sins, where he will have to atone for every bad thought and deed. As he has sown, so will he reap.

Reincarnation will gather around him all those other Egos who have suffered whether directly or indirectly, at the hands, or even through the unconscious instrumentality, of the past personality. They will be thrown by Nemesis in the way of the new man, concealing the old, the eternal EGO”

From “The Key to Theosophy” written down by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky

“And now I advise you to compare our Theosophic views upon Karma, the law of Retribution, and say whether they are not both more philosophical and just than this cruel and idiotic dogma which makes of “God” a senseless fiend; the tenet, namely, that the “elect only” will be saved, and the rest doomed to eternal perdition!”

~ HPB
