Past Karma - finish what you started!

Past Karma - finish what you started!
‘Karma’ is a word we hear often but do you know the real meaning of this word? Simply put, Karma is the memory of our souls. This means our karmas are etched out from our past lives into our current lives. And our life’s path is pre-determined by our actions or Karmas from our past life or life before that. In short, we must finish what we started!

Lingering Karma?

Lingering Karma?
What we left undone or did not do right in our last life will present itself in different guises until we resolve it or do right unto it. Until then we suffer from sudden problems, delays or unpleasant situations. So if you have been constantly struggling or why someone is in your life although you hate each other, it could be due to lingering Karma.

The good & bad of Karma

The good & bad of Karma
Surprisingly, we might be experiencing good or bad Karma from five previous lives!

However to understand Karma better, here are five incidents or aspects of past life that affect us:

1. Karma does not expire!

1. Karma does not expire!
Just like luggage, you got to lug your Karma right through the past, present, and future lives. Unlike lost baggage at the airport, you will never lose Karma. So you have to accept its burden, open, rifle through all the contents and confront the unfulfilled Karma and resolve it to lighten your load. Thanks to this Karmic suitcase, you may not even know but may have been experiencing results of your Karma since a long time!

2. There are no coincidences

Everyone and I mean each and everyone from your mother; father, sister, dog, best friend etc. have a purpose in your life. There are strategically placed. You can walk away from them but Karma can come in between and overturn your will.

Confront Karma

Confront Karma
Karma will play out as planned by Karma and not you despite you trying your best to make things happen your way. Every person in your life has a role to play – what is their role, why do they exist in your life, what will they teach you etc. Will there be negative or positive Karma that you will experience with this person? It is best to accept the truth so you can settle the burden of your actions.

3. You are what you do or have done

Karma is not only ‘What goes around, comes around’. Karma is not only negative as we commonly think it to be. But positive Karma exists as well. If you have stolen from other people, they will steal from you in your present life or in lives to come.

Karma will always find out...

Your actions in the past lives pave the way for life in the present. This means all the circumstances that you have to confront are a result of your good deeds or misgivings of the past. Whatever you do, it will find a way to get back into your life.

4. Karma’s role play

4. Karma’s role play
Karma loves role play. Surprised? Yes, our Karma causes us to reincarnate and many times in the reverse fashion. This means you could have been your present life’s mother’s mother in the past life and her, your daughter. So it is time for reincarnation, your souls changed their roles. Switching gender is also a possibility. Roles change based on the need of Karma. Whatever is required to heal Karma, it will manifest to complete this function. This has a chain reaction in our lives.

5. Like History, Karma repeats itself

5. Like History, Karma repeats itself
Ever wondered how the phrase ‘History repeats itself’? Or why do we crib each time we make the same mistake? We never learn, do we? There is a deeper meaning to this. It happens because Karma chooses to do so. It does not cause one pain or embarrassment but to teach one to learn something new from the mistake and seek different results. Simply put, Karma wants you to change your perspective. It wants you to change your approach to things in life.

Why make the same mistakes again & again?

Why make the same mistakes again & again?
Why make the same mistakes? Why let the same kind of people keep on hurting or duping you? Karma lets you make the mistakes until you learn to take different action for different outcomes.

Introspect!

Introspect!
That is why introspection is necessary. One needs to self-evaluate and analyse their faults, weaknesses, and the problem areas. But this is really tough and yet, it must be done. Change should come from within so that we can change on the outside. Only then Karma can be modified and put an end to the Karmic patterns.
