<โญ๏ธReleasing Your Karma
Karma cannot be avoided. For most people, Karmic energy is returned with the same intensity with which it was generated. Depending on your previous actions, this could create happiness or suffering. Whatever happens, is the result of Karma being released, which, no matter how you view the situation, is a good thing and an opportunity for future growth. Vedanta say, โNothing happens to you, it happens for you!โ Are you then doomed to a life of paying for past mistakes, interspersed by a few moments of pleasure? Not necessarily. By the quality of your current actions, Karma can be transformed, transmuted into a different form, or transcended completely. Here are eight practices that can help you increase the quality of your actions.
1. Make Conscious Choices
The choices you make influence your Karma in two ways. Making quality choices can soften the intensity or magnitude of situations resulting from returning Karma. The energy of the Karma has to be returned, but it can be transmuted. For example, instead of falling down and breaking your leg, maybe you just stub a toe. The Karma was returned but the quality of your life choices lessened its effect.
Your choices also determine the quality of new Karma being created and stored to be released as future events in your life. Itโs important, therefore, to be conscious of the choices you are making and ask yourself: Do these choices serve me and those who may be affected by them? Are my decisions coming from my heart and higher self or my ego?
This an important aspect of your spiritual growth. First, accept that what has happened has happened. Then, see if you can, without judgment or evaluation, understand why it happened. Finally, try to forgive whoever you feel may have harmed you; itโs always possible to forgive the person even if you cannot forgive the act. Forgive and move forward!
