Karma is involuntary on two levels and entirely voluntary on the third level!
Know that Karma is involuntary on two levels and entirely voluntary on the third level! Karma is involuntary on the physical and metaphysical levels. It is completely voluntary on the Spiritual level!
The law of Karma is the same as the laws of sowing and reaping. These are simply two different names for the exact same process. The law of sowing and reaping states, “as you sow, so shall you reap multiplied!” Of course, this is an exact description of the law of Karma too!
As a farmer plants seeds and reaps a crop at a later date, so it is with the law of Karma. But our seeds are actually Deeds and Actions! If we carry out good actions then they are returned to us multiplied. If we carry out negative (bad) deeds they too are returned to us multiplied!
It is only in the Spiritual state that we can be freed from negative Karma!
This process always starts with the Big action of wiping all our past Karmic debts. This is called “rebirth.” At the point of rebirth all our Karmic debts are wiped from the slate – notice it is only the negative Karma that is wiped! The good Karma still returns to us! Good Karma is never a debt!
From that point on we are allowed to handle Karma on a daily basis. At the end of each day we have to bring ourselves to account spiritually and forgive ourselves of negative Karma. We then commit to changing our negative habits and to increasing our positive habits. After that we commit to bringing it into tomorrow and every day thereafter – for the rest of our lives! This is called wholistic accounting – everything is wholistic in the spiritual world!
Because everything is wholistic in the spiritual world, you’d think that there would be some reference to it in the Holy Writings of God. There is. In spiritual terms wholeness is called Holiness! Look it up in the dictionary. The Oxford defines holiness as
By bringing ourselves to wholistic account each day we accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. It doesn’t take too long to become whole (Holy.) Stop imagining the state of Holy as being achievable only by saints – it is achievable by nearly everyone!
Let me show you how easy it is. Imagine you have 9 faults and 3 good points. How many good points will it take to tip the balance on a set of scales? Most people will say 7 – because you have to put 10 good points to tip the scales, 9 to balance them. But this is an illusion, my friend, because good and bad can’t exist in the sane soul at the same time. To place a positive on the scales we have to eliminate a negative. The weight simply gets transferred from the negative side to the positive side.
So the scales go like this
So it takes only four transactions to tilt the scales and not 9 as we imagined!
And the process continues
In 9 steps total we achieve 12 good points, zero negative points and we are Holy whole! Everything is simple in the spiritual world, not complicated as man has made religion over thousands of years.
Simple doesn’t necessarily mean easy. But is is a lot simpler to achieve things if you have a simple aim and a simple method to achieve those goals! It is not easy in the beginning to achieve spiritual goals – why is this? Because religions don’t teach a simple path, replacing that with complicated dogma. It takes a while to actually find the simple answers!
And you are going to have to go against the ways of the world (the physical and metaphysical worlds) and this is by far the hardest part, especially if you don’t have the complete simple path!
Our own physical families are often the hardest obstacles to deal with, as they are quite capable of using emotional blackmail on us! Fortunately they don’t remain hard for too long as we forgive them and it is no longer our problem! By forgiving them we change the battle from between us and them and shift it to between them and God! Lol! Whose Problem Is It? Not mine any more! Lmho!
There is a saying which states, “Anything simple to begin becomes harder and harder to live with, whilst anything hard to start becomes easier and easier to live with!”
What this means is that it takes no effort to fall into a hole (a negative habit) like smoking or drugs. But over time we make the hole deeper and deeper with our negative actions and far, far harder to get out of!
On the other hand it is far harder to start a ramp that will allow our bullocks to lift our cart up a cliff – even if the cliff is only 10 feet high. But once we get going and see the ramp being built we are filled with determination. When our ramp is 9 feet high we stop building it and simply remove a foot of earth from the cliff at an angle (going from 1 foot to nothing) and we are clear to go!
Once we are up the cliff we are into new territory, with land, water, feed in abundance! We can stake a claim there and move on after building a house in this verdant valley!
So how do you get to the point of rebirth, of the deletion of all our past karma.
Churches call negative Karma sins. It is the negative actions that are wrong (sins). The word sinner actually means “one who is not a disciple.” The word disciple actually means “a follower of the method!” So how do we become disciples? By simply asking aloud to meet God! This is the only way you can meet God unless you are a really exceptional “sinner” like Saul” who was struck down on the road to Damascus!
When I was 21 I died, passed over to the other side and returned to this earth. Yet I wasn’t “reborn” until seven years later! Why? Because I didn’t ask aloud! Simple as that!
If you want to meet God personally and be reborn into a new spiritual being, you have to ask NOW!
It may then take 6 months like it did for me (I was far from God) or it may happen in a second, a minute, and hour, a day, a week or a month! Or even longer if you are like I was – a card carrying atheist!
But the countdown doesn’t start until after you have asked aloud!
So, what did I say? I said, “God, if you exist please show me!”
If you are pretty certain that God does exist then try something like “Lord, I want to meet you one to one!” or “Lord, I want to meet you face to face and become a disciple!” and perhaps confirm it with an “Amen” (Amen means “so Be it!”)
The moment you have asked, start looking for the answer because your faith in the answer moves you towards it, whilst it is moving towards you! “to the level of your faith it shall be given to you.” This accelerated the time of the meeting!
Once you have been reborn and start controlling your karma you are set free of it – “You will Know the truth and the truth will set you free!”
To know means to do! “You will DO (Know) the truth and the ACTIONS (truth) will set you free!”
Isn’t that simple? The anagram for simple is impels, which I thought was very interesting!
Okay, so now I have shown you a path to freedom, do you want to take it?
Remember, Karma is a controllable option on the Spiritual plane, compulsory on the physical and metaphysical planes. You can still bring yourself to account on the two lower planes but it is a lot harder because all your past Karma (from the day of your physical birth to the day of your spiritual rebirth) is not forgiven!
The moment you are reborn into the spirit you unload you life times negative Karma (Why would you want to unload your positive Karma?)
You are then given new tools to eliminate future negative Karma and accentuate future positive karma.
Life becomes a lot simpler and a lot easier under Spiritual Law.
The action of asking for rebirth is the first step towards rebirth. The act of rebirth is the first step to Empowerment.
Take heed of what I have written today for it is the sure path to a lifetime of real happiness!

Satan, according to the Oxford dictionary, actually means wicked. So,“Get thee behind me satan!” actually means, “Get thee behind me wicked (thought)!”
The word wicked has many meaning, but they all lead to a common representation. Wicked means to twist (the truth) to make trouble, to be hurtful by degeneracy, vicious, intending to give pain. So definitely not well intended! Note the word vicious. Vicious is the opposite of Virtuous – we can be in a vicious cycle (which nearly everyone has experienced) or a Virtuous cycle (which far fewer experience a virtuous cycle because it involves commitment!) If we translate “Get thee behind me satan” into modern English we can use it very easily to repel evil thoughts from others and from our our mind. I simply say, “This is not my though and I refuse to accept it!”
You see all thoughts, be they good or evil, are thrown at us by the universe and we have to judge them ourselves, to either accept them as our own or to reject them. If we just let everything into our mind we can receive thoughts from the highest level (God, Pure Love) or the lowest level of evil.
There is a multiple motivational saying JIJO, QIQO, which means
Junk In Junk Out
Quality In Quality Out
We are all gardeners in this life and we are asked to grow good foods and crops. This takes commitment and effort, but you’ll never see a gardener or farmer complaining as reaping time!
It takes absolutely no effort to sow thistles – they sow themselves. But come reaping time you’ll hear people complaining long and loud that the thistles hate them. In fact the thistles don’t hate us. They don’t even know we exist! Nor do our crops love us. Again, they don’t even know we exist!
But we know they exist and the pleasure or pain they give us is the direct result of the actions we have taken previously! This is covered by the Law of Sowing and Reaping (also known as the Law of Karma).
To help us get rid of old inner thoughts I have written a book called “Mind Gardens” (ISBN. 0-473-02826-3) which I offer to you in PDF form. Simply email me asking for a copy and I will gift it to you obligation free. No advertising or add on paid offers – it is a gift from me to you and my gain is that it adds to my virtuous cycle!
To cleanse our minds of past negative thoughts is the first step to spiritual cleanliness. Once our inner mind is clean we put a watchman at the gate who takes care of 99% of thoughts entering our mind. The 1% he can’t handle it is referred to us. This means that our mind power is no longer spent “fighting fires” and we can spend the free time creating “Virtuous Cycles.”
We use the virtuous cycles to create a divine civilisation on earth, as always beginning with ourselves – “as within so without.”
As children (aged 0 to 7 years) we absorb everything we hear without discrimination (judging) and, if we are lucky, we grow up with only pure thoughts in our mind. But very few are so lucky.
Jesus said that as adults we must cleanse our minds of the negative thoughts implanted by others (Parents, friends, teachers enemies, media etc.) to give us a clean foundation of which to build our spiritual adult selves! “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a Man, I put away childish things.” This means that we move from being controlled by others to controlling ourselves!
How can we build a lasting house whose foundations are sand (negative thoughts which lead to negative actions)? We can’t! So we have to build a concrete base for our internal Spiritual Kingdom of Love. Usually this involves being “Reborn.” That is to say it involves turning our own internal radio receiver to Love, away from negative thoughts of evil (“man left to his own devices is inclined towards evil”.
Again, another definition, this time from wikipedia;
The terms known as virtuous cycle and vicious cycle refer to complex chains of events which reinforce themselves through a feedback loop. A virtuous circle has favourable results, while a vicious circle has detrimental results.
Both circles are complexes of events with no tendency towards equilibrium(at least in the short run). Both systems of events have feedback loops in which each repeat of the cycle reinforces the previous one (positive/negative). These cycles will continue in the direction of their momentum until an external factor intervenes and breaks the cycle. End of quote.
Let’s look at how the cycles start. Every vicious cycle starts very easily by us simply doing nothing! It takes no effort to fall into a deep hole and a lot of effort to get out of that hole! It takes no effort to leave our land to sow itself to thistles and lots of weeds. These pests simply germinate on the wind!
This is why we are asked to cleanse our mind of childish (self-destructive) thoughts and replace them with Manly (Self-building) thoughts. Self building thoughts don’t just happen – they have to be committed too and acted upon! Commitment is possibly the least favoured word of this New Age! Lol!
Building a virtuous cycle means putting a fence up around the hole, or filling it in, and then building foundations for a new Multi-storied house! Again, building the foundations is the longest and hardest part! Everything that is easy to do (falling into a hole) becomes harder and harder to live with. Everything that is hard to do (building foundations) becomes easier and easier to live with!
And so we have a choice of simply doing nothing with our lives and falling into continuous crisis (vicious cycles.) Or doing something with our lives and building a Divine Civilisation (this is the second high Goal in everyone’s life, with the first goal being connection to God/Love!)
Life is not complicated. It is actually very simple. But sorting the simple out of the blizzard of “facts” in this world is not an easy process. Never, ever confuse Simple with easy!
But once we find the simplicities of Life and start to build them, life does become easier and easier over time!
Thank you, Lord!

Yesterday my son and I were playing around (he’s 40 by the way) and I tapped him on the shoulder and said in a loud voice, “You have wronged me and i’ll NEVER, ever forgive you!!” To which he brilliantly replied, “Thank God God for that!” which set us both to laughing, me so hard i nearly split mt sides!
Why was that so funny? Because he understands the power of forgiveness. If we don’t forgive people we actually block their return of karma for the event we are holding onto! So the thing we want most is prevented by us not forgiving! If only people could know this there would be a lot more justice in the world and a lot more karmic harm to the perpetuators of negative deeds.
Not only do we stop them receiving their own negative returns but we also make ourselves spiritually homeless because our place in the universe is in the love column and we can’t be in two places at once. When we won’t forgive we move from the love column to the Justice column but we cannot administer Justice, only God can do that. So instead of administering Justice we just end up blocking it! And the perpetuator walks away free as long as we don’t forgive them!
So we end up homeless in the wrong column (Justice) and protect the perpeuator of the misdeed against us! Is that Justice to either party? No, of course it isn’t. So how do we rectify this problem? By simply forgiving and forgetting. By forgiving we move ourselves back to the love column (to forgive is human) and by forgetting all about it we fulfill ourselves spiritually (to forget is divine).Not that we don’t learm from the mistakes we made in letting the event happen to us – but we abstarct it from the person and just remember it as a generalized lesson. That is the meaning of forgetting.
Peace then reigns and our hearts are happy! And at the same time we unblock the Justice column so the karmic returns can instantly return to the perpetuator – classic “Instant Karma” (as sung about by John Lennon!)
There is a slight catch however. Many people forgive and hand people onto grace. Grace means total forgiveness of the wrong so no returns apply to it. To get instant Karma we have to forgive them and hand them onto Justice. If a friend hurts us we hand them onto grace so there is no Karmic returns. Do you see that as the victim we have complete control over the returns to the perpetuators? That is the way the Spiritual world is set up.
So If I had said to my son, “You did me a wrong and I’m going to forgive you and hand you onto to justice!” his reply would have been, “Arrgh! You Bastard!!!!” and we both would have laughed again!
