Everything we do during the course of our lives comes at a cost. That cost is often referred to as Karma.
Karma is the reciprocity factor for our every thought and action.
It refers to the philosophy that the same energy that we expend towards the world around us often boomerangs back to us with seemingly unexpected consequences.
Sometimes the returning energy is lovely—heart-warming and readily welcomed. Other times it is avoided at all costs as we dodge and duck the intended blows to ourselves and our belongings.
This is not to say that we fail to receive the consequences of collective anger when we did not warrant it, because we do. Good people have bad days, as do morally ignorant and ill-advised people have good ones.
But there is always a reaping of what was sown—both good or bad intentions, however if the recipient recognizes the situational opportunity presented, there is also a renewed sowing of better intentions to counter the negative aftermath received. It depends on how aware they are of the power of conscious intentions to affect their own lives.
I know this sounds like meaningless words—but when we focus our intentions on creating a more loving world, the effect exponentially reverberates throughout the collective morphogenic field. Here’s a quote from the Lifefield Technique website (http://www.lifefieldtechnique.com/Morphogenic_Fields.html) better explaining this principle:
“Individually and collectively we constantly contribute to the development of our Universe with our thoughts and the emotional content behind them. Accessing fields of consciousness, or morphogenic fields is as simple as resonance. For example, if you carry a high level of resonance for peace, the chances are that you will access peace easier and draw to you peaceful experiences. Likewise, if you have a high level of resonance for fear, the chances are equally good that you will find yourself tapping into more fear from that field and drawing validating and fearful experiences into your life.
If you have conscious awareness, you can keep yourself clear enough to be less influenced by negative morphogenic fields and choose to shift resonance to access fields that support your choices of higher awareness.”
To this above explanation, I generally agree and state also that so much of the world we experience is shaped by the focus on self-interest rather than our shared experience. When we become so self-preserving that we exclude consideration for others, we limit our scope of positive affectation on the world around us.
It’s so easy to feel joy and happiness and wish to willingly share that feeling with others.
It’s also easy to be angered by someone’s cruel words or actions—to wish to react in kind to those lower-frequency energies directed at you. But to act or react in anger or project hateful thoughts, or to wish harm to someone will come at a cost to you because what you project toward others is what you likewise will receive. It may take a little time, but energy has an echoing effect that bounces back at you like sound waves against canyon walls.
If you want to take a risk with your karma, take it with kindness and see what is reflected back from those intentions.
Far better to get hit with a kiss than a fist.
