Karma – a distinct probability.

The messenger.It is very probable that karma can be expiated, or mitigated, by oneIt is very probable that karma can be expiated, or mitigated, by one

It is very probable that karma can be expiated, or mitigated, by one which caused mental and/or physical pain to another and, by this visualisation, experiencing the physical and/or mental pain experienced by the other. Furthermore, a genuine surfacing of conscience, empathy and sympathy would be necessary. This probability arises because, as we know by now, all that happens is an illusion taking place in the individual and collective imagination. Thus, karma, manifesting in the hitherto described manner, is only occurring “in the mind” and it follows that one could create the same result by mentally re-enacting an event to re-experience it and do so in its true light: that is, without bias.

 

Note: I state this as a probability because I am not sure that it manifested, in
its essence, as a neoption. It is true, however, that I did get the essential
“picture” this time as I have done many times before, but I have yet to get
that usual sense of certainty which has prompted my inclusion of them in
this File. Perhaps, the absence of this sense of absolute certainty is due to the
extent of mental effort it has taken to put this into words.

    It is excellent to remind oneself of this because in due course the reality in this regard becomes a constant awareness. Also, most people see karma as a negative law because they only “see” the painful aspects of it. They also cannot take responsibility for the fact that it is they who created a situation: there is no god to blame. 🙂 [I have stated elsewhere that the law is a benign law but only learning will bring about this understanding.]

      Bert, this extract from “The Milk Is White” came to mind after I replied as above because it has some relevance to what you said about reminding yourself. In this extract your “reminders” are similar to the paving stones.

      Extract from “The Milk Is White” page 6.
      “What we do as we move forward can be compared to us laying down paving as we absorb and apply various principles and as we shed our negative aspects and attitudes and replace them with new and positive ones. The path itself is, within general parameters, already set down before us but in setting the paving tiles in place by our efforts we are slowly, one by one, consolidating our path and giving it a definition. It may well be that at times we falter or take a step backwards, but the tiles remain in place and give us a firm footing when we tread there again. We never destroy what we have created in this way even if we slide back a long way and return tired and bruised but a lot wiser.”

    This is a great and unharming way of seeing things. I have to remind myself of this now and then.
