The subject of Karma, past lives, and enlightenment tends to boggle the mines of people in the western world, and other countries that are dogmatically positioned in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Countries that are rooted in Buddhism and Hinduism have a better grasp the context of Karma and the context of enlightenment. People in certain parts of the western world that have an understanding of karma and past lives pursue spirituality independently. Religions of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity are the cause of deception concerning the true teaching of karma and past lives.
Moses taught about the curses connected to behaviors. He wrote in detail of what will befall an individual or group concerning certain human behaviors. The Prophets taught the idea, teaching the Israelites what will befall them because of attaching themselves to Idolatry and worshiping other gods—Baal and Ashtoreth/Ishtar. Jesus, Krishna, the Buddha, and the Apostle Paul all taught about karma, each person taught within the era and culture of the country.
Karma defines as:
The sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
Destiny or fate, following as effect from cause.
The teaching of the Bhagavad Gita is clear concerning past lives—the spirit is unchangeable, however, transfers from womb to womb living multiple lives. Because of the past life, the person is subjected to karmic bonds in the next life—good or bad. Karma explains why people are disabled, blind, deaf, mentally and physically disabled; karma dictates the next life. The Bhagavad Gita and the teachings of the Buddha clearly teach the truth concerning a rebirth cycle. The teachings of Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets taught about karma, although discernment and wisdom are vital to recognize how they applied the definition. The Jewish scribes and the early church fathers (after the apostle’s died) manipulated the Hebrew and Greek scriptures.
Matthew, writing about the parables that Jesus taught—clearly, karma taught. Concerning the talents, for the ones that gained talents from the one talent were considered faithful. The one that hid his talent in a hole and gave it back because he was afraid was considered lazy.
“Then the man who had received the one talent came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’
“His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.”
‘Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ Throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness?” — Matthew 25:24-30
Jesus is clearly teaching the laws of karma, the result of laziness, and fear concerning the kingdom. Moses also taught about karmic bonds attached to behaviors of wickedness.
And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.” — Exodus 34:6
Clearly, those who are guilty will be punished. Moses teaches about the curses (that he wrote down) that will befall a person or group of people that break the commandments. In addition, the apostle Paul writes according to what a person sows, a person will reap—good or bad.
However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: Each person will reap the consequences of their behavior, good or bad. —Deuteronomy 28:1
Do not be deceived, God is not to be mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. —Galatians 6:7-12
Keep in mind that the word—corruption—is sometimes translated as destruction, and does not mean total destruction defining as nonexistent. The early church fathers manipulated the meaning of words that changed the definition of the context. When the King James Version was released, the translators were totally under deception of Catholic dogma.
No matter what a person does in life, it will catch up with them, if not in this life, then the next. Jesus clearly condemned the Pharisees and the karma they will receive. In the moment is the time to act wisely. Seek the truth. Learn to do what is good to conquer the darkness. Circumcise your heart to a generous, giving heart, without a concern to receive anything in return. Go out of your way for the stranger without having a concern about your money or time. This is the depth of what Moses taught and that Jesus taught and supported. The Buddha, Krishna, the Prophets, and the Apostles taught karma. They taught within the era they lived and tailored their teaching according to the culture of the day. The word Karma did not even exist within the language of biblical Hebrew and Greek, including the word Ego.
Humans of a lower level of consciousness could not understand the depths of what was taught from each enlightened sage. The result was the formation of an Idolatrous religion. What made Jesus differently is that he came to the earth to be anointed as king of the children of light. Jesus lived only one life, therefore, he had to suffer and die to be raised to heaven as King and Priest. Other enlightened humans that are few, compared to the billions of spirits—lived many lives and suffered in the body. If a person reaches a higher level of consciousness during their present life, after death that person will transform into a Sacred Spirit. Breaking the human cycle is only for a person who cultivated unselfishness in the spirit world. Each spirit that has entered the human cycle—entered with personal karma.
The majority of humanity will never reach a higher level of consciousness. Consequently, the judgment era of the Man of Lawlessness will decide personal fate. The Bhagavad Gita clearly teaches the result of the majorities of humanity that prefer the delusion of falsehood; enclosed in the human cycle, experiencing one life to the next—birth, death, and rebirth. An individual can change bad karma from a past life into good karma. Virtuous action within the moment is vital, and live your life wisely.
