Newton’s Third Law of Motion is, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Put more simply, throw a ball at a wall and it’ll come straight back at you.

That’s why Universal energy sees every action and every inaction. We must not enter into judgement. We have no right and no authority to decide someone is better or worse than we are, or that certain situations should or should not occur. Instead of reacting negatively, when we accept that all conditions of life are healing karmic issues, we allow ourselves to live in compassion and understanding – a much better place from which to make decisions to help you move forward.

Once you remove judgement, you are free to love unconditionally, for nothing stands in the way of your soul seeing another soul, each one perfect and separate from human frailty. This is the state in which our souls want us to live. We must strive to overcome the weaknesses of the ego, and the negative emotions that continue to heap karmic obligations onto our souls.

Karma is not punishment. It is balancing positive and negative energy.

Our purpose is to work toward making every choice of thought, word and deed reflect our Highest Selves. This is our soul’s desire.

Karma does not care what you look like or how much money you have. It doesn’t care what your social position is. It does not judge. It is not punishment. It has no consciousness. It has no sense of morals. It is simply a balancing of positive and negative energy in the Universe. You get what you give.

It is all about cause and effect. Sometimes the cause takes quite a while to produce an effect, whether positive or negative. The effect might not happen in the same incarnation. Therefore, the soul carries that energy into the next incarnation. This is why sometimes we don’t understand the conditions and lessons of the current one.

What makes it extra complicated is that as you are experiencing a negative result from your actions in a previous existence, you won’t understand it. You might think you don’t deserve what Life is dishing out. You might become very angry and bitter, which may create a bigger karmic debt. By doing so, you’re digging yourself a deeper hole, rather than moving toward getting out of it.

Best to seek and learn the lessons that lie buried within the difficulties, tucked away like pearls hiding inside oysters. The painful experiences in life are the healing of karmic debt. Be grateful for them, for they give you the opportunity to move closer to Divine perfection. If you see ongoing problems with the same theme(s) throughout your life, you can be certain that the Law of Karma is behind them. Mastering the lessons and overcoming them will put them behind you, once and for all.
