Karma... The Universe I.O.U...

“Every man is where he is by the law of his being; the thoughts which he has built into his character have brought him there, and in the arrangement of his life there is no element of chance, but all is the result of a law which cannot err. This is just as true of those who feel “out of harmony” with their surroundings as of those who are contented with them.”
--James Allen


Standing where I am today, surrounded by all that surrounds me, having become the owner of my belongings, the seeker of many ‘wants’, being grateful for the many blessings, stanch about my beliefs, being filled with peace of mind, yet shaken by doubts, I wonder how and why my life is not consumed exclusively with positive thoughts, actions and materials…

Do I make sure to project positivity?
Do I know what my definition of success is?
Do I make sure to visualize my definition of success?
Do I avail myself to the unknown?
Do I release my thoughts, needs and wants?
Do I realize that everything I put out will be repaid in ten-fold… whether good or bad?

I have learned that luck is a word that sums up good Karma. To be “lucky” is not a response (from the Universe) based on chance or coincidence; it is to be a recipient of a good response to what you once put forth… the boomerang effect but with not set timing.
To experience downfall, defeat, deception and heart-ache is payback for your negativity.
Whatever you put forth, positive or negative, will be returned in the same manner but stronger…

Karma=Law of Attraction= “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you” --Matthew 7:12

What we sow is what we reap. When it is good, good will come back, however, when it’s bad, negativity is what you will attract. There shouldn’t be any doubt in anyone’s mind that with every action there is/will be a reaction. For every cause, there will be an effect. Reaction and effect are unfinished responses, unfinished business, latent response to our actions and causes. I sum it all up to Karma. I strongly believe that we all are governed by our power of thought and action. Where we are today and the predicaments we face are all in direct relation to our past; remains which we carry and our present thoughts and actions which create future Karma.
Karma is the result of our thoughts and conduct. Your thoughts and conduct will dictate your now and future quality of life. It will dictate if you will carry over good Karma or bad Karma.

When I’m in doubt, questioning the many “whys” in my life, I tend to project all negativity towards someone or something else and not take responsibility for anything that is not to my liking. That is my first reaction. But then I remember that the reason I’m in that position is because I let the power of negativity take over. Now, by me not recognizing and accepting my thoughts and actions, and cultivating negative feelings toward the who I believe is to blame, perpetrates the vicious cycle that keeps me wondering why…
First and foremost, I am my own friend and enemy. I know my good and my bad and I have the power to control my predominant traits, characteristics and thoughts…

When you visualize, then you materialize. If you've been there in the mind you'll go there in the body. - Dr Denis Waitley

I have the power to manifest the life I want to live. What I am today is the direct result of what I put forth in making the person I am. It is the direct result of my actions and decisions. As I recognize that, I also realize that I have the power to then create my future; to make sure I am deserving of good deeds. I do that by making sure that my today is filled with good actions and sincere thoughts.
So yes, I strongly believe in Karma (cause and effect) and the “Law of Attraction.” There is always cause and effect towards others or towards self. The belief also allows me to concentrate on other things than seeking revenge or payback if you feel you have been done wrong, leaving it up to the universe to even out the playing-field when it sees fit. If you’ve been done wrong, to be bitter and hold a grudge will eat you up and damage your aura rather than make you productive.

Life is what’s been on my mind lately… Although I have many questions as to why, when and how things happened the way they did, and why the lessons I’m going through are manifesting themselves the way they are, I’m learning to accept that there is no getting around Karma. Nothing is instantaneous and predictable in its timing. Through Karma, I’ve learned to accept the reactions, the effects, and the results as they are a direct response to what I once put forth.
I am passed the stage of discovering myself; I am “in the Know” of who I need to be, where I need to be and what I need to be. I have been building a mental pin-board of what I visualize my life to be with all that need to be in it…

I’m ready for my I.O.U from the Universe…

What about you? What are your beliefs? Do you believe your attitude, thoughts and actions determine your future? Or do you believe your path 'is' already and all you have to do is uncover it? Or maybe is it a combination of both?

To surrounding ourselves with positivity...
