On this lesson we will learn about two superior laws to which we are subject to – Karma and Dharma – and for this reason is very important to understand how they operate in order to know what to do to conduct our lives according to the superior forces.
If we do good deeds, the consequences will be good for us. On the other hand, if we do bad deeds the consequences will be harmful.
There is no effect without a cause or cause without effect.
In the superior worlds there is the Court of Divine Justice to judge our actions, which we also call Divine Law. It consists of superior beings, masters of the awakened consciousness, whose purpose is to analyze our good and bad deeds and then apply the sentence, which is the consequence of our actions.
The Court of Divine Justice and the Karma and Dharma.
This Court is ruled by Anubis and his 42 judges.
In the pyramids of Egypt several illustrations of the Court of Divine Justice were found.
In these illustrations the regent Anubis is represented by a jackal-headed man and the 42 judges are symbolized by several animals.
The Divine Law’s foundations are justice and mercy. Justice without mercy is tyranny. Mercy without justice is tolerance, is to be complacent with evil.
When our deeds are judged, if we have made more good than bad ones it produces Dharma, which is like a reward for our behavior in life.
On the other hand, if the bad deeds prevail the result is Karma, that is, suffering, pain, all kind of adversities etc.
Types of Karma.
There are several types of Karma:
Individual: when applied to a specific person. Example: in the case of a sickness.
It is important to clarify that not all suffering or bad circumstances are effects of Karma, because due to our unconsciousness we can directly provoke our own suffering. Example: a person who crosses a street without taking proper care can be run over.
Family: when applied in such a way that it affects a whole family. For example, a family which has a drug or alcohol addicted. This can bring suffering to all the family.
Regional: when applied to a specific region. For example, droughts, floods or other weather adversities that happen in specific places.
National: it is a magnification of the regional karma. We have the example of some countries which are destroyed by war, dictatorships, misery, natural catastrophes etc.
Global: when applied to all mankind. We have the example of world wars, and currently we can see the global economic problems, imminence of nuclear war, large natural disasters etc.
We must alert at this point that the mankind is passing through a difficult process due the global karma.
It is urgent that we change ourselves or, in other words, practice the psychological death as much as we can right now. Otherwise, we will fall with all the mankind.
Katancia: this is the most severe karma, which is applied to Masters, who in spite of their countless perfections, can make mistakes and consequently be penalized.
Kamaduro: the karma applied to the most serious faults, such as murders, ambushes, tortures etc. This kind of karma is not negotiable and when applied, goes irreversibly to the ultimate consequences.
Karmasaya: this karma is also not negotiable and is applied when a person commits adultery.
In the Holy Scriptures it is written:
And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.Matthew 12:31
The blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the sin of adultery. But what is considered adultery by Divine Justice?
In Divine Law, when two people are sexually joined they are married in the superior worlds (regardless of whether they are married by physical laws or not).
Thus, if a person has more than one sexual partner in a period of time (less than a year), this person commits adultery and brings karma to him or herself.
Furthermore, when two people are sexually joined, by being married in the inner world, their karmas are joined and become common to both of them.
And if one of these two people has a sexual relation with a third person, the last one will have the accumulated karma of all three people.
Knowing this, we can have an idea of how serious the karmic situation of mankind is.
As stated above, the foundations of Divine Law are justice and mercy. This means that we can pay off our debts with good deeds instead of paying it with sufferings.
Whoever has means to pay, will pay and his business will prosper. Whoever has no means to pay, will pay with pain.
We are all big debtors, whether by our deeds in the current existence or in the past ones. For this reason, it is imperative that we change ourselves immediately.
Instead of protesting if we are in trouble, we should make an effort to help others.
Instead of complaining when we get sick, we should give medication to people who can’t afford it, take people to the doctor that can’t go etc.
Instead of complaining against people who slander us, we should learn to see things from others’ viewpoint, and abandon once and for all every kind of slander, intrigue, complaining etc.
Our karma can be forgiven if we eliminate the cause of our mistakes, of our anger, of our envy, of our arrogance etc.
The cause of our errors and, therefore, of our suffering is the ego, the psychological defects. The ego makes us unhappy, perverse and miserable.
The world would be a paradise if people would eradicate from their lives these inhuman abominations.
As we eliminate our own psychological defects, the karma related to those eliminated defects is forgiven. This is mercy.
We should never complain against our karmic situation, since this can only worsen it.
Karma is a medicine applied to us so that we can see our biggest defects (the cause of our suffering) and then start eliminating them through psychological death.
