One of my absolute favorite things to do is get up early in the morning, put on a strong pot of coffee, and then go sit on my couch and meditate while it brews. It was so quiet here this morning – both in the house and in my mind. It was one of those days where I was able to drop into stillness with ease. While sitting in this silent zone, I heard a car door slam. It sounded like it was right in front of my house. I decided to play a little game and asked myself, “If I could choose anyone at all to knock on my door, who would it be?” I thought about people from my past and my future. I was especially interested in people with whom I carry an emotional charge. Maybe there’s some unfinished business I’d like to put to rest. Surprisingly, there was no one. A few people came to mind, but there was no compelling urge to connect with them.
Then it occurred to me that I’ve successfully processed all my old relationships and that I’m at zero karma. Zero karma!!! I’m at peace with being exactly where I am and simply having the future unfold in alignment with the highest good. I see zero karma as transcending both bad and good karma. It is a place of freedom where all the ribbons of energy have been untangled from one’s past and present relationships. I’m pretty sure I have some karma left to untangle in other areas of my life, and I’m working on that, but relationally, I feel very free.
At a place of zero karma, we are not pulled toward situations out of energetic habit, rather we are able to freely choose whatever looks fun and uplifting. My upcoming book, Modern Hippie: A Free Spirit’s Guide to Life, is about untangling from patterns that keep us enslaved to karma. In the book I talk about how karma is our friend because if it didn’t draw us to repeat the same behavior over and over, we wouldn’t have unlimited chances to heal. By entering these situations or relationships with the intent to evolve, we are able to consciously choose the exact behavior (which is often the most difficult) that leads us to the most free-spirited version of ourselves.
Thank you karma for pulling me in enough times to finally choose differently.Share on Facebook
