Most of us believe in some sort of karma, but what is it really? Karma is nothing more than residue from past and present attachments. Attachments develop when we attempt to get energy from somewhere other than our own essence. We never need to “get” energy; we have an unending source of this good stuff within us all the time. But when we’re upset, angry or anxious we can’t feel this inner pool of peace and vitality, so we frantically try to capture it from somewhere else.
Common ways we seek energy when we can’t feel our own is through other people (via emotional outbursts), or by over-consuming a comforting substance, or through a habitual or addictive behavior.
Take someone who’s in a relationship and has a habit of becoming explosive. Each time they give in to the impulse to explode in order to capture some energy, they forcefully infuse the situation with some of their own energy and try to capture it back through the rage. This is the same dynamic as trying to feed one’s spirit by drinking too much, or chasing one’s spirit by eating too much. All these behaviors do is provide a short burst of diluted and distorted energy while creating an attachment – voila – karma.
The karma either keeps you tethered to the unsavory behavior or it is slowly burned off each time your higher will overrides the impulse to seek immediate energy outside yourself.
Once we override karmic impulses to the point of them being fully integrated, we are at zero karma. This is the place where your higher self effortlessly directs you in a way that leads to inner peace, well being and the highest good for all. Being at zero karma is the true meaning of a “free spirit.”
What is dictating your behaviors? Is it karma or your highest self? Is your spirit bound or free? If, like most of us, you sense that you are bound in some areas, simply make the decision to move toward freedom. Slowly but surely (with some slip-ups for sure) you will integrate your attachments and arrive at zero karma.Share on Facebook
