Karma means action and the fact that every action has some causes and in turn causes other actions. There is in reality no sense of good or bad in Karma and no question of blame or getting your just deserts morally.

This morning I woke up at 3:45 to go to the gym. Some times when I have decided to get up at 3:45 and the alarm goes I turn it off and go back to sleep. Today, I jumped out of bed and went into the kitchen to make myself some tea. I noticed that the freezer door was open. Some frozen food had shifted and the last time I closed the freezer it opened. I looked inside and moved some food around and made sure it would close well. There was no damage in the freezer section.

I next open the lower fridge section and noticed liquid on the top shelf and reeking of vinegar. I took out all the stuff on that shelf and noticed a bottle of apple cider vinegar which had partially frozen and broken. I cleaned the vinegar and thought about Karma.

In this unit the thermostat is in the freezer section. The freezer door was open, so the temperature went up. This caused the fridge motor to work harder to keep the freezer temperature down. So the temperature of the fridge section went lower than freezing point and the rest is history.

As I was wiping the vinegar, I knew I had to write this post. You see there was no concept of blame (maybe mine for not noticing I had left the door open) for the vinegar bottle. It was a series of causes and effects. That is the result of action (Karma) not that for every action there is a reaction but for every action there are ensuing actions.

Among the processes I do in Transformative Imagination
is past life therapy. Now I don’t know if we really have past lives or not. What is important to me as a therapist is that past life therapy works. The unconscious mind loves the concept of reincarnation whether it is objectively true or not, and that’s good enough for me.

In many past life therapy sessions with people who have been somehow abused by loved ones, bosses, co-workers and so on we discover something I call the dance of Karama. Suppose Joan is being abused (physically, sexually, verbally or in anyway) by John in this life time. She imagines (I just mean uses her imagination to image) a past life where her soul abused John’s soul, and then in the previous life the roles were reversed and so it goes for many life times.

The only way this dance of Karma can be broken is through forgiveness. One person (Joan in this case sine she is being abused in this life time) decides to forgive and cut the Karmic chains which bind her to the abuser. Many times Joan will not want to forgive. Under the trance I ask her, “Do you really want to have another life time and more stuck with John?” This typically works and the person forgives.

I have seen many miraculous things happening after forgiving. I’ll write about those later on….
