KARMA, RIGHT OR PRIVILEGE?
My last blog “I only look at the positive, so everything is wonderful,” received such an unexpected response (now over 6,000 written responses), with over 95% positive. I did look at the other responses, and some good questions were presented, questions on Karma and the Law of Non Interference, in regard to taking action to bring awareness in ending child prostitution. The questions presented; does being an activist against child prostitution interfere with someone’s Karma and does it interfere with the Law of Non Interference? I shall present questions on these two subjects, but first for many of my new readers who may not be aware of what karma or the Law of Non Interference is I shall briefly describe them below.
Karma, a word used worldwide, a word used in Eastern religious beliefs, New Age beliefs, yet a word rarely understood. Is karma a “right” meaning morally justified and correct, or is it a “privilege” to be used to grant distinct benefits? Karma in Sanskrit literally means to do, to create action, work, and deed. The Dalai Lama’s book Path to Bliss states, “Some people misunderstand the concept of karma. They take the Buddha’s doctrine of the law of causality to mean that all is predetermined, that there is nothing that the individual can do. This is a total misunderstanding. The very term karma or action is a term of active force, which indicates that future events are within your own hands. Since action is a phenomenon that is committed by a person, a living being, it is within your own hands whether or not you engage in action.”
My teacher, Jonah, taught the meaning of karma many years ago, which I feel has an exceptionally clear and eloquent interpretation. He states, “Karma only exists when unconditional loving does not.”
Many years ago I asked my Chinese Teacher about the Law of Non Interference. He smiled and stated, “A law most human minds do not understand, thus they have created many additional laws and interpretations. If one wants to understand the meaning of Law of Non Interference, then one only needs to look at the nature of the universe. For that which is the creative source of this nature is also the creative source of humans. Meaning you want to understand, understand physics.”
When he taught me this, almost 30 years ago, I began to study the physics of nature, how nature works, and how nature comes under the law of physics. Philosophers for millenniums have sought to understand the nature of law, what makes a law, and do laws of nature change? Shortly after, I began to study philosophy, my other teacher Jonah taught, “The only absolute is there are no absolutes.” That teaching made me search even deeper into the realm of the human consciousness versus nature. Years ago in my research on physics, I found what is called “Wave-particle duality”, where a physicist observed within a quantum event that the event itself changes by mere observation of the event. The quantum event knows when it is being observed.
This is just like humans. If a person is aware they are being observed, they change how they normally are. I see this all the time, in my Tai Yi School when it comes to test time. A student will come up to the front of the class to demonstrate what they have learned about Tai Yi. They know they are being observed, tested, thus they change how they would normally be. How often I hear, “But I do better when you are not watching me.” Sometimes I will observe someone, not aware consciously I am watching them. Still I find subtle changes in their behavior, such as movements, in the way they hold their head and hands.
So what does this have to do with Karma and the Law of Non Interference? Do you create Karma through the Law of Non Interference by observations? What about the Wave-particle duality? I have read statements from psychologists stating they will go out of their way, to give incomplete advice so as to prevent breaking the Law of Non Interference, thereby avoiding Karma. Yet, if by their mere observation they created change in the client, would they not be breaking this law, even if they said nothing?
This is certainly an interesting philosophical topic to discuss. I am going to present this question; knowing it will make some angry, some will want to explore more, some will agree, some will get more involved, and yes some will hit the delete button and move on. So here goes. Do some people use the law of Karma and the Law of Non Interference to avoid taking responsibility, as a human to assist humanity? In my study of human behavior over the years, I have come across so many unique excuses why some do not want to get involved.
I can still remember the most pathetic excuse of all time. This occurred in 1988 through the Universal Education Foundation, which I co-founded. Several volunteers along with my wife and I took a group of boys who had been held in detention for one reason or another. One teenage boy I shall never forget. His father, who acted as his pimp had turned him into a sex slave. This went on from the age of 5 to the age of 15, when his father was caught and put in prison. He was 16 when I met him. I worked with him for that week, but knew he would need therapy for years to come. At the end of the week, I asked a psychologist if she would volunteer her time with him, as he would not fully open up to a male. Her response was, “Hey, he is not my karma, why should I volunteer?”
I asked her what she meant, she replied, “This kid created this himself. This is his karma, he will need to deal with it, don’t be asking me to volunteer my time.”
I told her, “I will never ask you again, for anything. But, before I go just a quick comment, perhaps you have chosen the wrong profession.”
I see so many people sitting around waiting to be a New Age enlightened person, the return of Jesus, or some colossal event to occur, something to create change, without getting involved. Abraham Lincoln once said (May 29, 1849), “You can fool some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all the time.”
With all the talk about the end of the world, it breeds the unscrupulous minds to feed on the fear of survival mentality. The savior mentality is a hot commodity. Wouldn’t it be interesting to search the depth of a mind that fully believed in Karma or Law of Non Interfere, as a way of not getting involved? I mean not getting your hands dirty, being fearful of being the cause of change in someone who has turned their life around because of you, and your choice to get involved. Unfortunately, world peace is not like a virus that can spread around the world in a matter of days. World peace takes action; it takes energy, not just by the few, but by the many. I think it particularly confusing in finding those who live by the absolute word of Law of Non Interference, yet expect change, and mass enlightenment. Well for God’s sake, if everyone believed in this law as such who would be left to get involved?
If a serial rapist were loose in your neighborhood, would you state you could not get involved because of this law? Would you communicate it is not my karma to get raped? Would you state to one who was raped, that is your karma and I cannot help you because of the Law of Non Interference? If you knew the devastating anti-nature of GMO food would you use the Law of Non Interference to not interfere not to speak out for the quality of humanity? Perhaps by being a spectator, when you could have helped is in itself creating karma. Certainly that does show a lack of concern for humanity. Perhaps people have this law backwards. Perhaps it is about getting involved in change, in helping people heal, helping people to awaken to their true destiny.
I know this message is working. I am finding every day more and more people, who used to sit on the sidelines, now getting involved. They are getting involved in educating the public on the dangers of GMO food, the dangers of Chem Trails, the danger of putting preservatives in inoculations causing brain damage, the dangers of global climate change, the dangers of our children, humanity’s children, being sold into slavery. Please don’t make the excuse this is not your problem, it does not exist in our country. It is our problem. It does exist in every country on earth, so does GMO food, preservatives in inoculations, and global climate change. All of this is in your own back yard.
I write from a very different perspective on human consciousness. I have had two death experiences in this life. I have traveled the distance beyond the physical. I have had the opportunity to meet and be taught my some very enlightened teachers, physical and non physical (Read Tide of Change). I know what occurs with many people who are self conscious about getting involved. Some reason they are simply working on their enlightenment and raising their vibration by only sending light to others. Indeed some of these people will have some compelling experiences when they travel to the other side.
Many do want to get involved, they simply do not know how. What are the issues in your country? People reading this blog live throughout the United States, Europe, Mexico, Canada, China, and yes even Africa. Search what is the issue in your country, your area. Ask, get involved. For one thing I do know well, not getting involved when you have the ability to be is in itself the creation of karma.
I consider myself a philosopher, one deeply committed to motivating change in people’s lives. I do not apologize for being an instrument of change in the lives of many people. I do not apologize for getting in the face of parents who mentally and emotionally abuse their children. I do not apologize for pushing parents to see the damage they are doing to their children. Am I breaking laws by being an instrument in the healing of these children? If I am, then I am breaking Eastern religious laws, or New Age Laws or some law a channel has declared is a law. If I am breaking these laws, they certainly are not Universal Laws of unconditional loving. I am impassioned by having experienced some middle aged men and women, come up to me and state, “You helped me as a child and were the turning point in my life. Without your involvement, I may have gone in a very different direction.”
My grand teacher Jonah, will be teaching on May 20, 21, and 22 in Denver, Colorado on “Transforming Amnesia of Home.” I do know he will be teaching much on how to awaken the mind’s experiences and abilities from home, on how to get deeply involved in your own healing, and assist in the healing of the whole. Ones original ability is 10 fold from what it is now. Bring the memories, feelings, and love for those abilities and watch them grow. Most importantly (at least to me) he will discuss and convey an understanding of the law that supersedes all laws.
I have been asked many times recently, to write about my journey this last March to Jerusalem and Petra, Jordan. I shall do this soon; it will be titled “A Journey Through Deception.”
