I’m not scared of Hell but my impending Karma terrifies me!!!

I don’t believe in Hell.  I don’t believe in an unjust and eternal place of torment and regret.   I think it’s just a scare tactic to compel me to do what others want.  “If you don’t do A, B and C then you’ll rot in Hell forever but if you follow us we’ll get you on the right train” they say.   It’s the basic “carrot and the stick theology”.  The God I believe in could not be so A) mean, B) unjust, and C) unloving.

However, that being said, that does not mean that God is not a teacher, that God is not working with me, that God does not have plans for me.   He does.

His plans require me to eventually conform(of my own choosing) to the Universal curriculum of Love, Law, and Truth.  The more I resist, the more bad Karma I incur.  The more good Karma I fulfil the more good Karma comes back to me.

When I first became aware of what Karma was I realized that it was only just and fair that I receive the bounty of my actions.  When I loved, love was shown to me.  When I did otherwise, that was shown to me also.

When I think of my impending Karma it really does terrify me.  In fact though, it seems worse then Hell because it will by so very, very real.

Instances of a Karmic Path:

The time I was arrogant…..

………I guess I can expect arrogance to me.

The time when I was stubborn…..

……..I guess I can expect stubbornness coming to me

The time I was a gossiper……

……..I can see that people will gossip about me

The time I was clannish….

……..will find me next time being excluded from the group

The time I insisted on deference to me…..

……..will find others asserting their own will on me

The time I analyzed so completely……

……..will find me being under the microscope of others

The time I made nice to win people over……

……..will find others fawning all over me to compel my confidence

The time I needed to exert my power over others….

……..will find me powerless with others

The time I boasted of truth to others…..

……..will lead me to my own untruths in spades

The time I was cold and callous…….

……..will find me shivering in my shoes from my interactions will others

The time I was rebellious…..

……..will find insurgency against me

and last

The time I sold out others……..

……..will find me being betrayed by others

Although this post may seem somewhat ominous I must point out that I still believe that God is fair, just, and loving.   The lessons we incur are our lessons. We chose them.  As we modify and amend our own behaviour we incur the good Karma. We incur God’s blessing.  The beauty, symmetry and logic of such a system really is unassailable.  In all honesty I can’t think of a better system.  Like King David, we can each seek to redeem ourselves and seek God’s own heart.  From this day forward I will change my Karma.  Not as a system though, but rather again as those values, principles and Ideals that I have subsequently outlined in my other posts.  I resolve to be Loving. I resolve to be Universally Lawful. I resolve to seek Truth.

“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”

    Different masters have tried to bring the concept of Karma back on track…it’s not the “tit for tat” concept that is so prevalent in today’s thinking.

    My spiritual teacher teaches that it’s all about self-correcting – not a bookkeeping exercise. If someone upsets me, sure enough, I’ve done the same to someone else and this incident helps me see it. It takes great digging to reach the honesty. When I can achieve that truth, I am motivated to change my behaviour.

    We are given endless chances to finally “see” it in ourselves.

    At times I wonder if I ever need to forgive anyone because they are unknowingly showing me my dark side. I may not have done the same thing to the same degree, but if I get truly honest, I’ve done it.

    When I was told we all have a touch of Hitler in us, I really didn’t like hearing that. But I’ve gossiped which can be character assassination that may have been less devastating, but who knows?

    So Karma is much broader, I believe, than reciprocation.

    I wholeheartedly agree. I have future posts regarding this very subject. I think that it’s more complicated then what we can truly understand at this point in time. It is not “I did something to George so in my next life George does something to me.” George has probably moved on. It’s ourselves that we meet. Thanks for that clarification.

      Thank you. I think that this topic of Karma and Reincarnation is actually a very big idea in that it really takes a long time to properly understand. I think that the common phrase is that “it takes a long time to wrap your head around.” I would encourage you also to examine it further from other additional sources. Sometimes I think I understand it really well and other times I find new things to understand it better. Peace and Love be to You.
