Love and Karma


It is because we took our lessons seriously that we have found what blessings can be squeezed out of this life.:) You asked, "What were we thinking when we incarnated on earth?"

The Soul level of Mind is always and only thinking of creating karmic balance in the cosmos. To create this perfect equilibrium, we must make mistakes. Happily, however, these mistakes are only processing-errors, built into the system in order to teach us. The ancient Greek word for "sin" was the term used by archers for "missing a target." This was not a voluntary or deliberate act, but an imperfection. So, "sin" was not "evil," but imperfection.

Imperfections and errors create no negative karma, for we simply do not have the processing-capacity to act outside their influences. Only deliberate, voluntary acts create karma. The rest are covered by a wide and wise forgiveness. In fact, early Christians were famous for the phrase, "All our sins are forgiven."

With karma, no one is spying on you or reporting you. Karma is a law, just like gravity. No one has to "enforce gravity" upon you; it is simply a natural law.

We come to earth as often as it takes in order to learn the great lessons of Love, forgiveness, detachment, remorse, recompensation, and regret. As we learn greater Love, we are also able to receive greater Love. This is what Jesus meant when he said, "If you forgive men their trespasses, your Father will forgive you. But if you do not forgive them, neither will your Father forgive you." This makes the entire cosmos a kind of mirror, sending back lessons, both easy and (usually) more difficult.

Love is greater than even that massive karma. This means that we can be forgiven for even "sins" for which we cannot forgive ourselves, for the Love-fountain at the Center of the cosmos is infinite.
