Inner Workings of Karma
It seems that karma is a mysterious force that propels adequate responses to all our deeds. Outwardly, it is merely a mechanism of action and reaction within the emotional, mental, or spiritual planes. But how exactly does a right or wrong action return to us eventually? What is the mechanism of karma?
The Holographic Principle, hidden in every aspect of reality, elegantly explains the inner workings of karma.
Let us reflect upon our possible wrongdoing—for instance, we have manifested aggression toward another human being.
The action from the external world can occur even before our own similar action toward the outer world. Nevertheless, we are often unaware of their inner connection. Such actions from outside will be occurring as long as there is a part within us that corresponds to these actions.
There must be a person in our environment which represents the aggressive part of our personality. As such, that person will inevitably take similar action against us.
The Question of Conscience
Another way of getting the karmic lessons is through self-punishment. Of course, it is usually a subconscious process.
When we commit a negative deed, our conscience creates a feeling of remorse. If it is a conscious feeling, we will repent and maybe even punish ourselves deliberately for that deed.
If our regret is deeply hidden under layers of our subconscious mind, it will cunningly undermine our actions and health. It will also create an unconscious decision for self-punishment. Again, in accordance with the Holographic Principle, this decision will be projected onto the external world in the form of resentment in some people around us. In this way, our regret will eventually manifest itself through adverse events in our life or people who will harm us.
Of course, I am not saying that we should have no regret over our obvious mistakes. On the contrary, we must recognize our bad deeds from the past and correct our behavior through the reintegration work on our personality. After that, we have to move on.
You may be wondering why there are many seemingly unfair cases. It seems that there indeed are rare people without conscience, the so-called psychopaths. They may outlive many of their victims, as there is no conscience and regret within them. They do not regret their actions, and they do not punish themselves for any misconduct.
Additionally, such persons typically possess very strong egos, that may shield them temporarily from many external threats, and postpone the karmic events.
There are some cases of Nazis who had escaped the earthly hand of justice and even lived long after WWII. However, the karmic lessons eventually reach such people, too. The destructive parts of their beings that were the source of their wrongdoings are reflected in their external world in a variety of possible forms of situations and people. These external forms will inevitably find ways to pierce through the heavy shields of their egos and impact their lives in a reciprocal manner.
So, there is no invisible, higher council which decides upon the righteousness of our deeds. Neither God does this. There is no hidden force that inexplicably returns to us all our previous actions. It is simply a matter of external reflections of our inner being.
Now, it is easy to conclude that karma is the consequence of unconscious living, of unintegrated parts of our inner being which must manifest themselves in our external world. If they remain in that unnatural (unintegrated) state – there is karma. But the Holographic Principle gives us invaluable advice: if we reunite our unconscious, suppressed parts with the oneness of our being, we will become free of karma.
