Below is how water looked like with the words "Love" over it. The difference is amazing.
This is polluted water!
This is water from Lourdes, France. Utterly beautiful, right?
Wait A Minute! Aren't You Made Up Of Water? Yes! 72% of your body is made up of water. Imagine how your words affect your own body. When you say, "I'm a failure"or "I'm hopeless" or "I won't get well", imagine how these words weaken your health. Make a choice to say the best words out there. Say often, "I'm wonderful" and "I'm beautiful" and "I'm God's child" and "God has a great plan for my life!" It's not only water. Dr. Emoto also experimented with cooked rice. He placed one cup of cooked rice in two airtight jars. On one jar, he wrote, "I love you" and on the other, "You fool". Everyday for 30 days, Dr. Emoto would say these words to each jar of rice. After 30 days, the "I love you" rice was still white. But the "You fool" rice was so rotten; it was black. How can you explain this?
Just as a side note: When I was a child, my mother taught me to pray before meals. Now I realize it wasn't just a nice thing to do. When I pray over my meal, I know a material transformation takes place in the molecular level of the food that I pray for. I say, "Be blessed" to the water and food on the table and I expect it to be blessed.
Karma - action and reaction: Vikarma - action with bad or binding reaction: Akarma - action without reaction:
Karma does not necessarily mean past actions. It embraces both past and present deeds. Hence in one sense, we are the result of what we were; we will be the result of what we are. In another sense, it should be added, we are not totally the result of what we were; we will not absolutely be the result of what we are. The present is no doubt the offspring of the past and is the present of the future, but the present is not always a true index of either the past or the future; so complex is the working of Karma.
It is this doctrine of Karma that the mother teaches her child when she says "Be good and you will be happy and we will love you; but if you are bad, you will be unhappy and we will not love you." In short, Karma is the law of cause and effect in the ethical realm.
“An eye for an eye, and soon the whole world is blind” said Mahatma Gandhi but that’s how it seems to be down here in this world. People are becoming blind by not seeing what love is all about.
A lot of people are trying to take the so called ‘justified action’ practicing an eye for an eye but in truth, that’s vengeance in action. Any kind of action done in the absence of love is a reaction of what human beings believes to be righteous.
This is a warring universe. There is a constant war going on between human righteousness and love. The only righteous action should be an act done out of love and love doesn’t inflict injuries. As you said, if we kill someone here, we can be hanged. Not much of a loving reaction isn’t it and if we do follow the way of love here, than the action may appear unjustified towards the killer. It’s as if there is unfairness. What is fair for one person may not be fair for another person. Karma on the other hand is different. While it may look as if it is an eye for an eye kind of law we can look at karma as a law established to educate souls about love, but man made laws, aren’t really educating souls about love. If look closely, you will find man made laws are teaching righteousness: Human righteousness. The purpose of karma is to teach you about love.
In the end, those who follow man made laws are subject to karmic law too. Karmic laws are natural laws. We all have to learn about love sooner or later. True love is above any kind of law. Love is a law unto itself. The whole aim of life experiences we go through is to find this Love (God). Until this lesson is learned, there will always be conflict in this world.
There is really a difference between what man believes to be right and what nature is trying to do by finding balance wherever there is conflicts. When man tries to be exacting in his revenge or judgment what his is upholding is his own self righteousness. It’s the attempt to preserve of his own ego which will fail in the end.
Nature is on the other hand is constantly preserving the entire universe. It’s really about being selfish and being selfless. If one is selfish he will look to his own agenda as something valid but if he can see love, he will let go his own puny ideas and work with the world towards creating a harmonious world.
Yet, it won’t be easy. The nature of this world is to be in constant dynamic struggle between the good and the bad. It is through conflict that we learn to grow. If there is no conflict, growth will be so slow that we can miss the lessons we are suppose to learn. Conflict inst bad after all. There is a good thing to everything.
It’s how we look at it and the way to do it is to ask ourself, “What is this situation trying to tell me?” There will always be a lessons. We wonder why things are the way they are and that’s alright but many times we fail to wonder why we are in this situation and what we are to learn from this situation. Often it’s a lesson on love.
