How to create Good Karma
Category : Past Life Therapy
If you believe in reincarnation and future lives, then you might want to consider what conditions you would like to live under in the future, so that you can progress forward in your Spiritual Life.
1) To become someone that has the physical and mental ability to discriminate between helpful and destructive actions. Animals and others that are constantly in pain have a very difficult time with this discrimination. Also, humans can be born or acquire problems that can take away their ability to discriminate and intentionally perform genuinely beneficial actions.
2) To be born in an environment where there is enough to eat and all the necessities of life are easily found, including fresh water, air and a healthy environment.
3) To be born with wisdom, status and resources to easily allow for a spiritual practice and to assist others with their spiritual practice. This is one of the greatest benefits I experience from my own Spiritual Healing practice.
So, by thinking about what you would like to create for yourself in the future, you can begin to know how to create good karma now so that it’s more likely to happen. Remember that you get to experience in the future what you intentionally cause others to experience. Deciding to assist others with a genuine desire to help is a great way to begin. Of course it’s important to root out any hidden agendas, misunderstandings or deep seated negative karma from the past.
Hypnosis and past life regressions, along with various other forms of alternative healing are a great resource to help you know what you really want to create and clear the limited beliefs or past karma that prevent you from doing so. Taking the time now helps to ensure that the conditions of your future lives will be advantageous for your spiritual healing, progress and happiness.
How do I create good karma?
The word Karma can be thought of as actions or deeds and also as the law of causality.  According to Mayavada/Advaita Vedanta of Adi Shankara (Great Indian philosopher 8th Century AD) and most Buddhist schools the aim of human life is Moksha/Nirvana or getting rid of Karma and its fruits. But as long as one has not reached that stage some or the other Karma is inevitable whether we like it or not. Therefore those actions that help one reach the aim of Moksha/Nirvana should be done and they constitute good Karma. The Bhagwadgita says that no human being as long he is alive can avoid action, therefore he must involve himself in actions according to his inherent qualities, temperament, social position, Divine eternal moral order/cosmic law and stage in life. Again for spiritual seekers the Bhagwadgita recommends superior actions (Sattwic), spiritual praxis, self control and surrendering to the Divine will. All these constitute good Karma. According to the dualistic schools (Dvaita) of Indian spirituality love, devotion, faith, service, worship and final surrender to the Divine is the aim of human life and all actions that help reaching this aim are good Karma. According to the Yoga school of Indian spirituality the aim of human life is Moksha and there is a eight-fold path of spiritual praxis. Following the path with sincerity constitutes good Karma. All human beings are born in the world with some inherent qualities, likes, dislikes and aspirations. There is a purpose for each birth. That purpose will have to be fulfilled in life. therefore, that Karma (whether it is good or bad) will have to be compulsorily done. That Karma cannot be wished away. Thus, certain Karma is unavoidable. All paths of Indian spirituality recommend paths and methods of getting rid of bad Karma as far as possible, minimizing its bad impact as far as possible and doing good Karma or getting rid of Karma altogether. This is for spiritual seekers. For the common men/women following the general rules of morality and ethics should help create good Karma or reaping the fruits of good Karma.
‘Karma’ is a Sanskrit word for actions or deeds. It’s a Hindu and Buddhist concept from ancient India that embodies the idea of cause and effect, action and reaction. It’s also about contributing to a better and more beautiful world. But how does karma work in our lives?
We believe that acting with good, true intentions – and creating and sharing goodness – will always create ‘good karma’. The idea of helping to shape a positive, loving and kind world resonates strongly with us because we feel that this can have a wonderful ripple effect.
How do we practice Good Karma?
Karma is the idea that whatever happens in our lives is a reaction to our own previous actions; it’s an effect of what we’ve done, felt or said before. In other words, all of our intentional actions have an effect, and we’re the creators of our own reality. Whatever we do, say or feel, affects how our lives will be shaped in the future. Karma is all about doing good, not just for ourselves, but for others and the world around us. Let’s think of our lives as a garden. If we take good care of it, if we put in time and effort, it can be beautiful. But we need to realize that there are things in our garden that are beyond our control: rough weather, the seasons and even the people who walk into our garden, whose intentions are different from ours. But we are the gardeners – we determine what our gardens will look like and how we deal with the imperfect and the unexpected.
Creating karma: living with good intent takes practice. Day after day, living with the right intent means cultivating mindfulness and compassion amid the chaos. It means paying respectful attention to loved ones, to our surroundings, connecting to nature. It means finding beauty in the small things; being open to new wisdom; to listening quietly. It also means building good karma: we need to replace our anger, greed and negativity with love and kindness.
We create our karma through …
the right thoughts;
the right speech;
the right actions.
In other words, by focusing on good intent. Instilling good intentions in all of our thoughts and actions mean that we can’t help but create and share goodness for ourselves and those around us.
