On many occasions the word cosmic karma is used, many people know more or else what is karma but not so many know the meaning of cosmic karma. The idea is that our actions have karmic causalities. This means that what we do matter and we may get benefit or action may have downsides in our lives.
Have you heard that sometimes when someone who considered to be a bad person will somehow have an accident or some sort of bad luck and people say that karma got him? You may think that karma means when we will do bad things, karma at one point will punish us. This is not quite accurate.
Karma means “balance” and cosmic karma means “universal balance”. Karma can be accumulated; this means that you can keep doing what you want without any consequences but at one point the accumulated karma will be applied.
One can not talk about karma without speaking about reincarnation. We will speak about that later on this article but for now, I will continue with karma.
Karmic payback is always in full and it is always in this life and with the physical body. It doesn’t work to say that a karmic payback will be in other life and so on.
Karma has positive payback as well, people do not always get punished by karma, sometimes karma brings positive reward to a person as well.
You may ask, how do I know what I do is positive or negative? In general, we have to be in the service of others. If you are unfair toward someone, this will bring you bad karma and on the other hand, kindness toward others or even animal bring positive karma.
If we explain the karma more accurately, karma is a set of laws which enforce balance and harmony. The thing about karma is that it is neither bad nor good. The result of our actions may bring a good or bad thing to us, but we cannot blame karma for it. When we say bad karma, it means, we will receive something that we may perceive as bad or unpleasant, but the karmic payback will cause balance and harmony.
This balance will not be always apparent to us but maybe someone else will benefit from it, nevertheless at that time the balance is restored.
Why karmic laws exist?
Karma is a universal teacher; it teaches us a lesson. We learn about right and wrong by being rewarded or punished but wait a minute. How do we define right and wrong? As I mentioned above, we have to be in the services of others. Do not do anything to someone which you don’t wish to be done to you. I don’t believe that there are “absolute ” good or bad or even absolute moral values, however, I also believe deep inside everyone possesses knowledge about what is considered to be good or bad.
What is reincarnation and what is a connection with karma?
Reincarnation is the process of rebirth after death. Our consciousness is reunited with its counterpart and we remember all prior lives we have pass through. This is in another world which we do not have access to until we die. Upon return, we choose a new body and basically a new life story to learn. Scenarios are created to test if we will repeat the same mistakes or not. Here karma enters the games to teach us lessons. If you like the article, please share it.
