We all want to experience bliss, joy, and happiness while avoiding pain and needless suffering in our lives. We suffer to learn the broad range and totality of being human until we ultimately find the meaning of life, which is to love- it is our teacher. The first half of our lives is spent burning off karma, learning lessons, and the second part is to grow spiritually and eventually when we are ready is to discover the path of our spiritual awakening. Below I will share and comment on four exercises that can help accelerate burning off negative karma according to the channeled text, The Law of One: Book One, (10.4) by Ra, an humble messenger of the Law of One:
Exercise One. This is the most nearly centered and useable within your illusion complex. The moment contains love. That is the lesson/goal of this illusion or density. The exercise is to consciously see that love in awareness and understanding distortions. The first attempt is the cornerstone. Upon this choosing rests the remainder of the life experience of an entity. The second seeking of love within the moment begins the addition. The third seeking empowers the second, the fourth powering or doubling the third. As with the previous type of empowerment, there will some loss of power due to flaws within the seeking in the distortion of insincerity. However, the conscious statement of self to self of the desire to seek love is so central an act of will that, as before, the loss of power due to this friction is inconsequential.
Exercise Two. This universe is one being. When a mind/body/spirit complex views another mind/body/spirit complex, see the Creator.
Exercise Three. Gaze within the mirror. See the Creator.
Exercise Four. Gaze at the creation which lies about the mind/body/spirit complex of each entity. See the Creator.
The foundation or prerequisite of these exercises is a predilection towards what may be called meditation, contemplation, or prayer. With this attitude, these exercises can be processed. Without it, the data will not sink down into the roots of the tree of mind, thus enabling and ennobling the body and touching the spirit.
Intention to seek love in the present moment through the distortions (maya, Sanskrit for illusion). Choosing loving awareness can only be accomplished through Free Will. Mindfulness is way of being in the present moment, purposefully, so by being loving in the present is a beautiful and will sow rewards. When you choose love, negative thoughts and emotions fall away without effort just as a river flows naturally to the source.
“The total number of minds in the universe is one. In fact, consciousness is a singularity phasing within all beings.”
The Universe is One Being. See others as God in the Flesh. “The Creator” is in you as well as others, even those whom you despise, loathe, hate, judge, hurt you or others you love and care about, make fun of you, throw stones, or make life just pain difficult and vice versa. God created them with love too. God, Brahma, Jesus, Allah, Yahweh, the Intelligent Infinity, the Universal Creator (or use your preferred concept of a higher power) resides in everyone. If you can see the spark of the cosmic flame in someone you fear or judge, then you will make tremendous progress letting go of negative karma. Imagine you had strength and courage to forgive everyone who has ever hurt you? Imagine you have the strength and courage to forgive yourself. This is powerful stuff. Forgiveness is a form of love. Be kind and love yourself. By realizing negative thoughts, emotions, and embracing love you will start to raise your vibration, feel lighter, more free, and raise your awareness more towards what might be referred to as cosmic, Christ, or Buddha consciousness. The friction with the distortion of insincerity I believe refers to frustration or resentment that can arise when you try to love someone that doesn’t care, it isn’t received, or doesn’t love themselves.
As for the third exercise as noted above, you are made of the substance of God, a spark of the fire of spirit, and atom of the cosmic flame, and a cell of the vast universal body of the creator according to Paramahansa Yogananda. This is Dharma or universal truth. Be curious, look into your own eyes, peer into your soul and wonder at the beautiful creation you are. Honor and cherish your divinity. Be kind and loving to yourself, forgive yourself if you need to, and free yourself from the bondages of karma and embrace the miracle of your being. Love and compassion must include you to be complete and whole.
The fourth exercise to my mind is to see God in all things. This can be accomplished through prayer, contemplation, and meditation to sink in and be absolutely absorbed by the mind. If God created everything then everything is a part of God, be ever mindful of this concept. Imagine seeing God in all things- a simple thought but I think challenging to perceive.
God is love. God is truth. God is light. Everything happens for a reason. There are no coincidences. This takes many lifetimes to learn. There is a natural polarity that exists in the world and in ourselves as well. We are all aspects of good and bad in some sense. The greater balance that exists in our minds, body, and spirit, the more power and energy we must overcome obstacles, things tend to flow without effort. We were created with a thought, and so our thoughts have the power to create. Loving thoughts will manifest love, and likewise fear and negative thinking will create correspondingly. The best way I can think of is imagining the voice of Sir Richard Attenborough in a nature documentary describing the vast beauty and awe of this planet, the nature, and the beautiful creatures that exist, life.
We all have the power to create beauty in this world. What are you willing to try? The world needs more love now then ever.
