Karmic Relations

lördag, november 24th, 2012

The concept of karma is that of cause and effect, so our thoughts and actions in one life creates effects in future lives, especially when it comes to relations! Apart from our interaction with nature, the main karmic impact – good and bad – is our interaction with other humans! Life as a mirror, shows us our past in all conflicts and struggles, as all the persons that gives us a hard time, is a picture of ourselves in earlier lifetimes! That’s why forgiveness is such a good healer – forgiving others, is forgiving ourselves!

In modern astrology the outer planets- jupiter, saturn, uranus, neptune and pluto are karmic indicators, as well as the moon and even Chiron!

In our birth chart, hard aspects from our personal planets to these slow moving planets, reveals the main karmic challenge in this lifetime, and the same aspects in synasty – between the  birthcharts of two people tells us of a possible karmic relation!

A karmic relation in this sense does not say that you have met before – it might -but it says that the theme of the planet involved is mediated, as a karmic effect, by this person in your present life!

So if you for instance have a saturn synastry aspect, this person might give you high demands, like in a working relationship, as an echo of your own past as an employer, boss or demanding teacher or master. If you embrace this karma, it will wonderfully wear out your sharp edges, and evolve humanity and empathy, and of course, can get you the benefits of hard work!

Jupiter is more fun and easygoing in synastri, and are traditionally associated with happiness and marriage. This could be meeting supportive, positive and generous friends and partners, but of course, jupiters love for freedom can be a challenge in these times – so watch up for the need to own your partner! This planet reflects your own generosity in past lives, and as such is experienced mostly as ”good karma”!

Uranus is also a free spirit, and very hard to catch! This works best as travelcompanions on adventure, or in short romances with less demands! If you want to go steady with a uranus connection, be shure to create tons of freedom within the relationship – and don’t try to dominate in any way! Maybe such persons mirro your own sensitivity to power, from past lives as a rebell or freedomfighter!

Neptune loves unity and art and search for deeper spiritual realms! You might find a soulmate or a gifted person, that you feel you have known all your life! Often you don’t need words, but feel the telepathic connection directly! Though – neptune is misty, confusing and create illusion just as easy as wonders! So if it ends out being deceptive , causing dissapointments and abandonment – it’s time to confront your own values and behavior, misguiding others!

Pluto loves passion – red as blod! It’s the ultimate power planet, so in synastry, your in for strong emotions! It’s the God of the underworld, so there might be fascinating connections in the subconscious and the occult, but it’s also the planet of crises, so any old behavior or happit, that you cling to – he will force you to let go! This can be deep healing relations, but sometimes even violent – as you confront the most primitive sites from your own past! Only forgiveness brings about transformation here – let go power, and you will be enpowered!

The moon symbolizes the past, both childhood and past lives, so moon synastry can help you heal the child in you! This might be a person that makes you feel secure and nurtured – like a child in your mothers arms! All subconsious reactions on threads and stress will trigger old habituated emotional survival response hidden in the moon sign, so this kind of relation can be very healing – if you dare open up and show the vulnerability of your inner child!

Chiron, the wise Centaur, is the healer who adress your deepest wounds! When you join up with this synastry, you immidiatly go deep together! Automaticly you put your finger on the most vulnerably spot and transform the moment to deep existential therapy – if you don’t run away, screaming like a madman! It takes some maturity to stay put, and to cherrice this opportunity to heal the karmic trauma, that often goes many lifetimes back! And interesting enough, Chiron even was the astrologer!

So in karmic aspects, we have an opportunity, both to find a deep sincere relation and to heal ourselves and our friends and partners, from karmic trauma and thus liberate us to be free and present in love – in this and future lives to come!

One community that gives a chance for Astrological  synastri in the service EkoMatch, is Ekodate, an alternative singlesite that offers this understanding and method!

2012 – doomsday or blessing?

onsdag, februari 8th, 2012

This year has a mystic aura spelled out in media as youtube, facebook and blogs about the meaning of the end of Maya calendar, and we can find websites monitoring earthquakes, vulcanos and political crises as proof of the coming doomsday! Different religious and spiritual groups take the opportunity to ad horror to the prophecy and claim terms of salvation. So how do we handle this? How can modern cosmic perspective through the laws of karma help us get order in kaos?

First, we can sort out all claims that are obvious false, like planets lining up, for instance. In this nasa article http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/2012-guest.html astronomers  give facts for fiction and help us see through the New Age wishful thinking. At dec 21 2012 there is either a planet line up or earth lining up with the center of the milky way, there is no new planet Niburu, and the Mayans never talked about their calendar ending, and even less of the end of the world! It’s true that a circle is ending – the Mayan  baktun, that is 144,000 days: a little more than 394 years. But there will be lots of baktuns after this, just as there will be lots of millenniums after the last!

What if it’s all about paper? When you print a calendar, you have to set a limit, due to choice of format: 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, 100 years all depending of your purpose of the calendar. Imagine that the Mayan calendar was actually given to earth by more advanced visitors from space. They might have handed over a printout, but had to set a practical limit – of this baktun, or the paper simply run out there!! And the foolish earthlings thinks, that when the calendar ends – the world ends!

But then again, there is no smoke without a fire, and our planet is still in a crises! Global warming is happening, world economy is crashing and many threats are still to be handled by world leaders and world society! The turning point in this discussion is just a matter of time scope!

Man has a hard time with long term perspective, and always tend to put things in a closer range, to be able to handle it more easy. Maybe it’s even a wish to be there and witness the great events, to be a part of history ourselves! As described in other articles in this blog, disaster and crises will escalate in the future, not because of old prophesies, but because of the law of karma! We put it there ourselves, in this and former lifetimes!

But the beauty of it is not the actual events, but the meaning behind – the transformation of mankind, not overnight on a special date, like 12/21 2012, but gradually through centuries and millenniums and baktuns! Karma is the teaching of life through cause and effect, and the present world crises, both environmental and political, is proof enough of the need of this divine principle!

I was told that a doomsday gathering in a San Fransisco park in the 70’s turned out to be a great disappointment, when the world did not end, as predicted by the prophets, and the hippies had to go home to confront every days challenges, as usual! What a bore! But this is exactly what it’s all about – a New Age romanticism, impatient, understandable, but not practical! Who want’s to hear about a very slow evolution, step by step, through hard work and brave endeavor, with no shortcuts or exceptions?

The beauty is the total justice of this slow evolution – we all have to walk it through! From a higher perspective, the crises are the transformation. Market economy must crash, to make room for the cosmic economy build on equal for equal! Superpowers must fall to make room for a world government for global peace! The “holy cow” called “growth” and “expansion” must give way for “degrowth” and “sustainability” . The grassroots movements knows it! The wise knows it! In your heart, you know it! It’s scary, but in the same time thrilling!

So when nothing special happens 12/21 2012, it is a kind of wakeup call! Stop dreaming –begin working! We need all hands to get this done! Begin where you are! Be just! Be honest! Be helpful! Be true! Simple steps for a better world! Take command of your karma and change the world! Plant good seeds and you will harvest good crops! Listen to your heart, use your logic, open your eyes, and you can see the beauty is already here……

The birth of UN

lördag, april 2nd, 2011

After the second world war the UN was formed, to avoid that the holocaust could ever be repeated! But the question is, if this was really the birth? So far the critics claim that the UN has no power, and often fail to act for the sake of world peace. Several  horrifying examples of genocide have been taken place since then, without the protection of world society and UN.

United Nations

In the cosmic perspective, the scope of time is much more extended, and the start of UN is more likely to sample a fertilization, and the period up till now, has been the pregnancy period! As long as the veto right is paralysing the power to act, there is no real function in UN security counsel. But maybe it’s natural that this size of an organisation takes time to grow and mature!

Martinus tells us, that UN is the first seed for the future world government, but that it might take 500 years or more still, before the baby has grown old enough to carry the full responsibility of ruling the whole planet in peace and wisdom. Much patience and stamina is required to full fill this quest for years to come!

So can it be, that the present crises in Libya, mars 2011 actually is the birth of UN? For the first time the security counsil in UN is united and can act with power, hopefully to avoid a new genocide! This time the veto instrument was not used by the superpowers, and the peace-force is in action! It’s sad, of course, that UN need armed intervention, but it might be an important turning point in history!

If the planet was a village, so far it has resembled the wild west….a village ruled by outlaws, with no sheriff. Now the sheriff assigned ,as the future role of the UN in world society!

In the future international world society, there will be no boundaries, no other weapon force, than the peace force of the world government, acting as a neutral world police – the sheriff in the village! This future world of global peace, will have no money system, and man will be in harmony with nature and  finally have grown in humanity to that extend, that it’s so obvious to share in whatever way you can, for the best of the whole!

Planet earth is rich and can feed twice the people, if man can learn to share, and science concentrate on sustainable energy and agriculture!

This future world government is ruled by spiritual advanced beings, chosen, not because of ambition and power, but because of wisdom, humbleness and inner strength! Before that is a fact, big changes must take form in the organism of mother earth, and so in her brain called mankind! Some of the biggest issues we will face is:

  • The crash of world economy to finally break down the monetarian system, towards a 100% just new economy, where the only valid unit is  personal working hours, impossible to steal or to speculate away!
  • The breakdown of national armed forces, including those of the superpowers!
  • The use of science to become ”life science”  instead of ”death science”! To use all knowledge available to support nature and make the deserts grow, clean the enviroment and feed the world!
  • A shift in medical science paradigm from the materialistic to the holistic, understanding our bodies as a microcosm of living beings – our tiny brothers and sisters, for whom we have the greatest responsability!
  • A shift to a vegetarian and healthy lifestyle, and the development of organic, natural agriculture worldwide!
  • A deeper understanding of crime, as the conduct of younger brothers and sisters in the spiritual evolution, and new ways to support and educate criminals instead of punishment!

These changes  will not be forced on mankind by political power, but will be evidently necessary due to major crises on earth. Only when world society, by the mandate of UN agree to such profound changes, will it be possible! It takes little fantasy to imagine what kind of global crises that is needed for this kind of change, but at this time, we hear so many warnings from researchers all over the world, that our present course is impossible, and a major changes is needed desperately! And yet, it has to come from inside the heart of every person!

The Karma of Mankind

This is where the wonderful work of karma comes in to the picture! As the earth, literally, is trembling, people will suffer; not as punishment, but as the best education from the best teacher of life – karma. The ignorance and wrong-doings towards fellow beings, as other humans, animals and to mother earth herself, from many lifetimes, add up to release it’s consequence in the major global crises to come. The wise describes it: ”The bullet has already been fired, and is on it’s way back to it’s origin – as all energy goes in circles, and nobody can reap, what he has not planted himself!”

I’ts easy to loose hope and to give up, when crises is overwhelming, but hope is near! In the deepest crises, we get help to get back to basis, to care about each other, to get closer in human contact, to reevaluate our lives! So our hearts are growing in compassion and brotherly love, through all this suffering experience, and slowly we understand the need for global action. So every new generation will show the way ahead, and slowly learn to choose leaders with more human qualities and deeper wisdom! This will slowly unite the earth, creating a real world government to rule in peace and love for thousands of years to come!

The Perfect Human Kingdom of the Future

Over 100 reasons to become a vegetarian

fredag, april 16th, 2010

As explained in other blog posts, one of the main karma challenges of the earth is the meat-eating karma. For most people there are no awareness about the karmic consequences of meat industry and consumption, and so this massive killing process is going on planting seeds of horror thus maintaining an equivalent of horror destiny for mankind. This logic of cause and effect should be enough reason to become a vegetarian, but there are lots of other reasons as well.

Please help us to fill the list to get far beyond 100 reasons to become a vegetarian, by comments to this blog post! Here is the beginning:

  1. Ethical – by compassion to all living beings, we avoid to kill for living. The animals are our younger brothers and sisters, with as much right to live as we!
  2. Environmental – save the planet! Meat production and consumption creates as much carbon-dioxide as car pollution!
  3. Ecological – a hughe energy saver. 80 % waste of energy to use land for cattle instead of crops!
  4. World hunger – same reason. We can feed at least 4 times more people by using land for agriculture instead of cattle.
  5. Water crises – beef cattle consumes up to 50 liter water daily, and even more in warmer climate ( third world!)
  6. Health – meat is acid due to high content of nucleic acid, and produce high range of waste products in human metabolism. When kidney cleaning capacity is saturated, the buffer mechanism parks these acids in connective tissue in the body, and by time, barrier to cell function is threatened and chronic disease will arrive!
  7. Health – autoimmune illness is a civil war in microcosm, where the immune system attacks cellular tissue of it’s own body. The philosophy of vegetarian tradition explains, that animal protein is to close to human protein in the food chain, so the immune system gets confused and can’t tell friend from enemy, if to much waste from meat-eating is saturating body tissue.
  8. Health – animal fat is mostly saturated and creates plaque in human blood vessel with risk of coronary heart disease and high blood pressure!
  9. Health – meat is often prepared fried or grilled, with a high degree of acrylamide forming, that could induce cancer and other chronic illness.
  10. Health – Meat is easily forming putrefaction processes in the large intestine with higher risc for diverticulitis and auto toxic pollution of the blood causing other illness in the body!
  11. Health – Heavy metals and other environmental toxins are highly concentrated in both animal and fish tissue, with a greater risk of toxic influence in human carnivore metabolism.
  12. Health – Beaf cattle are often degenerated by breading, and thus treated with antibiotics and hormone remedies that might be traced in meat products!
  13. Health – sometimes cattle and pigs are fed with slaughter waste material and so the concentration of toxins is multiplied twice when reaching the consumer of meat.
  14. Esthetics’s – how nice is it to eat a corps, if it where not camouflaged by preparation?
  15. Economical – meat is expensive – vegetables and fruit are cheap!
  16. Other vegetarians suggest reasons with more statistics here as listed in categories:

    PEOPLE

  1. Every year in the UK we feed our livestock enough food to feed 250,000,000 people while in the world 30,000,000 people die of starvation
  2. 20 vegetarians can live off the land required by one meat eater
  3. Every 3 seconds a child dies of starvation somewhere in the world
  4. If Americans reduced their meat consumption by 10% it would free 12,000,000 tons of grain – enough to feed 60,000,000 people (the population of Great Britain)
  5. If all Americans became vegetarian, it would free enough grain to feed 600,000,000 people (the population of India)
  6. Intensification in animal farming has displaced 1,000,000’s of people from their traditional lands – eg. indigenous people in south & central America, native Americans in north America & crofters in Great Britain – this is continuing today
  7. People displaced from their lands into cities succumb to dietary deficiency, diseases, parasites & opportunistic diseases
  8. In third world countries 1 in 10 babies die before their first birthday
  9. The UK imports �46,000,000 worth of grain from third world countries to feed our livestock
  10. Due to overgrazing 850,000,000 people live on land threatened by desertification & over 230,000,000 already live on land so severely desertified that they are unable to sustain their existence & face imminent starvation
  11. 1,000,000,000 people in the west gorging on meat & dairy leave 1,000,000,000 to waste away & 3,500,000,000 teeter on the brink

    LAND

  12. If they continue to clear American forests to raise cattle at the present rate, in 50 years there will be none left
  13. 1 acre yields 165 lbs of beef or 20,000 lbs of potatoes
  14. 8/10 of cultivated land in the UK is used to grow food for animals (14,732,000 hectares)
  15. It takes 16lbs of high protein soya to produce 1 lb of beef
  16. Since 1945 in the UK we have lost 95% of flower meadows, 50% of ancient woodlands, 40% of heathlands, 50% of wet lands & 224,000 km of hedgerows all due to animal farming
  17. Pressure on land due to meat farming leads to soil erosion 6billion tons/year in the USA
  18. If everyone went vegetarian up to 90% of land used for animal farming could be taken out of production & used to replant woodlands, leisure activities etc.
  19. 25% of Central america’s forests have been destroyed for cattle grazing since 1960
  20. Between 1966-1983 38% of the Amazon rain forest was destroyed for cattle grazing
  21. 90% of cattle ranches established on cleared forest land go bankrupt in less than 8 years as the land becomes barren due to nutrient loss & overgrazing
  22. Overgrazing by cattle is destroying the land & increasing desertification, nearly 430 million acres in the USA alone has suffered a 25-50% reduction in yield since first grazed
  23. An inch of topsoil takes 200-1000 years to develop – yet in the USA they have lost around 1/3 of their prime topsoil in 200 years (around 7 inches) due to animal farming
  24. Land will be lost due to rises in sea level due to global warming due to animal farming

    AIR

  25. The destruction of the rainforest by cattle farmers is destroying the lungs of the planet & reducing the worlds capacity to replenish our oxygen supply
  26. The 1,300,000,000 cattle in the world emit 60,000,000 tons of methane per year (methane is a greenhouse gas & leads to global warming)
  27. Burning of forests, grasslands & agricultural waste associated with animal farming releases 50-100,000,000 tons of methane per year
  28. Combining these figures, 25% of methane emissions are due to animal farming (not including the billions of sheep, pigs & poultry so the real figure is much higher)
  29. Fertilizer used to grow crops to feed to animals releases nitrous oxide – thought to account for 6% of the greenhouse effect
  30. Fertilizer, weedkiller & pesticides sprayed on crops enter the atmosphere creating a noxious carcinogenic cocktail
  31. CFCs are released into the air from refrigeration units used to store decomposing flesh (meat), milk & butter – CFCs are destroy the ozone layer
  32. Ammonia from animal urine also pollutes the atmosphere
  33. CO2 is released by burning oil & petrol in lorries, ships, abattoirs, dairies, factories etc. associated with meat & dairy production
  34. Emissions from large chemical plants which produce fertilizer, weedkiller & other agricultural chemicals are also poisoning our air

    WATER

  35. 25 gallons of water to produce 1lb of wheat & 2500 gallons to produce 1lb of meat
  36. UK farm animals produce 200,000,000 tonnes of slurry (liquid excrement) every year, the majority of which ends up in our rivers
  37. Bloody waste water from abattoirs ends up in our rivers
  38. In the USA every second humans produce 12,000 lbs of effluent while farmed animals produce 250,000 lbs
  39. Nitrates & pesticides used on crops grown to feed livestock end up in our rivers
  40. Meat & dairy farming uses 70 litres of water per day per animal in the UK or 159,250,000,000 litres per year in total
  41. The water used to produce 10 lbs of steak is equivalent to the average consumption of water for an entire household for an entire year
  42. Depletion of groundwater reserves to grow crops for animals & to supply abattoirs will lead to greater water shortages
  43. Aquafers (stores of underground water) in the San Joaquin valley in the USA are being drained at the rate of 500,000,000,000 gallons/year to produce meat
  44. 18% of all agricultural land in the world is irrigated & as global warming increases (partly due to animal farming) it will cost $200,000,000 to keep these systems going
  45. The water used to produce a 1000 lb beef steer is enough to float a Destroyer battleship
  46. The liquid waste from the various parts of the meat & dairy industry flow into the rivers & from there into the seas polluting them & encouraging huge algal blooms to grow

    EFFICIENCY

  47. To produce 1calorie of energy from meat takes 60 calories of petrol, whereas growing grains & legumes to directly feed people produces 20 calories for each calorie of fuel used ( thats 1200 times more efficient)
  48. Meat & dairy farming uses billions of gallons of oil to run tractors, fuel ships & lorries (to move animal feed & animals), pump billions of gallons of water to irrigate fields & run slaughterhouses, power refrigeration units to prevent the corpses from decomposing & to power sewage plants to clean up some of the pollution produced
  49. Cattle convert only 6% of their energy intake (mainly grains & soya) into flesh, the remaining 94% is wasted as heat, movement (which is why they keep many animals in very close confinement), hair, bones, faeces etc
  50. 1lb of beef takes 1 gallon of petrol to produce
  51. A family of four eating beef for a year uses enough petrol to run a car for 6 months (obviously depending on how far you drive!)
  52. If the full ecological cost of meat was passed onto the consumer – the price would be quadrupled (at least)
  53. The EC spends �100,000,000’s to subsidise animal production resulting in lakes of unwanted milk & mountains of unwanted meat & butter. This money could be better spent encouraging organic fruit, vegetable & grain production
  54. In the USA in 1979 145,000,000 tons of crops were fed to cattle resulting in only 21million tons of animal bodies – the cost of the wasted crops was $20,000,000,000
  55. Between 1950 & 1985 grain production in Europe & the USA increased massively but 2/3 was fed to animals
  56. 70% of all grain is fed to animals
  57. Eating vast quantities of animal flesh, eggs, milk & butter is a luxury that most of the planet can not afford

    ANIMALS

  58. Fishing with drift (and other modern) nets weakens & destroys ecosystems by indiscriminately killing billions of sea creatures & disrupting the sea bed
  59. Fishermen’s nets kill 10 times as many other animals as the fish they are hoping to catch
  60. Fish caught in nets die an agonising slow death of suffocation
  61. Each year 15,000,000,000 land animals are slaughtered for food & an unknown but much larger number of sea creatures (including 1000’s of dolphins caught accidentally)
  62. Chickens are crammed into battery cages with upto 3 other birds, they are unable to even spread their wings & many can not even stand up
  63. Unwanted male chicks (because they can’t lay eggs) are gassed or pulped while their sisters go to the battery sheds
  64. Chicks are debeaked without anaesthetic to prevent them injuring each other in the unnaturally confined conditions they are kept in – this is equivalent to having your fingernails pulled out without anaesthetic
  65. Modern farming methods using growth hormones & artificial lighting mean that many chickens out grow their bones, resulting in fractured & broken legs
  66. Sows are kept tethered in stalls 1.3 x 1 metre on concrete or slatted floors – they can not even turn around
  67. Poultry raised for meat are kept in windowless broiler sheds, with around 20-30,000 in each shed, they live in an area of 10-20 cm square – fighting due to overcrowding is common & like battery hens they commonly suffer from supperating bed sores
  68. Broilersheds are artificially lit 23 hours a day to produce rapid growth
  69. Animals travel between farms & to slaughter in overcrowded transporters with no food or water – resulting in stress, injuries & deaths – legal requirements are widely ignored
  70. 95% of poultry suffer injuries before being killed & 30% suffer broken bones
  71. Problems with stunning practices mean that many animals have their throats slit while still conscious (around 6% of cattle or 200,000 per year) & are then dipped in tanks of scalding water (to loosen feathers, bristles etc.) again while fully conscious
  72. 4000 animals die spurting their blood out every minute in a British slaughterhouse
  73. Calf leather comes from animals killed at just 2 weeks old
  74. Cows were fed on the ground up remains of other cows & sheep – the result is thought to be BSE (mad cow disease) in the USA cattle are fed partly on recycled plastic pellets
  75. Cows only give milk for 10 months after they have a calf – so they are routinely artificially inseminated (ie. mechanically raped) to keep them pregnant & milking – their calves are taken away (usually at 12 hours old) for meat or export to veal crates
  76. Cows would naturally live upto 20 years but are slaughtered after 5-7 years when their milk production begins to fall
  77. In the UK animals are killed by first being stunned with electricity or a captive bolt gun (ie. a bolt is fired into their heads) before having their throats slit & being plunged into boiling water – all this happens on a production line with the animals being hung upside down from a moving conveyor belt – this is factory farming
  78. ”Animals are those unfortunate slaves & victims of the most brutal part of mankind” – John Stewart Mill (philosopher)
  79. Veal calves are confined in stalls in the dark, unable to move & are fed on pigs blood , chocolate & dried milk (we are drinking the rich fresh milk of their mothers)
  80. Cows naturally produce 5 litres of milk per day for their calves – under the intensified systems of modern farming they produce 25-40 litres per day – resulting in swollen & inflamed udders – at this rate they are soon worn out
  81. Large areas of land are under monoculture to grow crops to feed to animals – these areas are wildlife deserts supporting fewer & fewer species.

    HEALTH

  82. Vegetarians have a 20% lower rate of mortality from all causes (ie. they live longer & don’t get sick as often)
  83. Meat is full of traces of antibiotics, hormones, toxins produced by stress & pesticide residues that become concentrated from all the crops they have eaten
  84. Fish contain heavy metals & other pollutants -many of which originated on farms
  85. The world health organisation recommends a diet low in saturated fat, sugar, salt & with plenty of fibre – exactly what you get on a vegan/vegetarian diet
  86. Farmed animals contain up to 50% saturated fat in their bodies
  87. Vegetarians have 24% reduced risk of getting heart disease & Vegans a 57% reduction (heart disease is the biggest killer in the UK accounting for 50% of deaths)
  88. Obesity is rare in vegetarians, obesity is related to many diseases
  89. Vegans & vegetarians have lower blood pressure & cholesterol levels – high levels are associated with heart disease, strokes & kidney failure
  90. Vegetarians have a 50% reduced risk of dying of diabetes
  91. Vegetarians have a 40% reduced level of cancer than the general population thought to be because they have a higher intake of vitamins A,C & E
  92. Vegetarians have a reduced risk of developing gall & kidney stones
  93. 80% of food poisoning is due to infected meat (faeces, bacteria etc.) after all meat is decomposing flesh – most of the rest is due to salmonella in eggs
  94. Osteoporosis due to calcium loss from bones is mainly due to the sulphur content in meat & casein protein in milk that cause calcium to be lost in the urine – the countries with the highest meat & dairy consumption are those with the highest levels of brittle bones
  95. 50% of people do not have the enzyme to digest milk properly & milk allergy is related to asthma & eczema
  96. Meat eaters have double the rate of Alzheimer’s disease as Vegans & Vegetarians – some people also think that Parkinson’s disease is also linked to meat eating
  97. Egg yolk is a dense concentration of saturated fat & the white is high in albumin protein associated with leaching calcium into your urine. Butter is 80% saturated fat, cream is 40% saturated fat & cheese is 25-40% saturated fat
  98. Meat eaters are two and a half times more likely to get bowel cancer than Vegetarians
  99. The cling film used to wrap meat in supermarkets & butchers contains chemicals linked to falling sperm counts in men
  100. Chinese people (living mainly on a vegetarian diet) consume 20% more calories than Americans but Americans are 20% fatter
  101. Of 2,100,000 deaths in the USA in 1987, 1,500,000 were related to diet (ie. meat & dairy)

….and many,many more! So whats left to remain a meat eater – taste and habit only? Is that reason enough really? Ask your head…ask your heart…ask your body!

If man could change from reason only, the world would already be a paradise, but human evolution is slow and organic due to the law of cause and effect. In spite of all facts described above, most inhabitants on earth still eat meat with great pleasure. That´s why karma has to do it’s educational work. Only by experiencing the effects of meat eating karma on our own body, the change can take place!  So the suffering through illness, accidents, catastrophe and global warming will slowly awaken our empathy for  animals and our own micro-beings, to that extent, that there are no other options than the vegetarian way left!

Slowly and organically, mankind will, thanks to the law of karma,  find the natural way of living without killing, and thus create a brighter wave of lifegiving karma for a future world of peace and harmony. At that point we will look back in horror on the dark area of mans meat eating period of history.

The Paradox of Karma

fredag, mars 19th, 2010

The magic of karma is, that things often turns out different in the cosmic perspective. Society is full of behavior, opinion, convention and assumptions that is only kept alive of habit and lack of deeper awareness. This is what creates the irony of fate or the paradox of life – the paradox of karma! Let’s take a look on some examples:

The first shall be the last!

This old saying does have a deeper truth to it, in the cosmic perspective of karma and reincarnation. Modern society is still ruled by money, power and ambition, so ”the first” would be the people of wealth and success, often due to power and the ability to make money grow without work. As explained in another bloggpost, moneykarma is often based on this kind of hidden stealth, so evidently the empire of this kind of wealth is build on hollow foundation, and will fall. The fate of this kind of karma will create poverty and misery for many lifetimes ahead, to fulfill the teachings of life and evolve empathy and awareness of all the misery and poverty the former lifestyle created, for all those victims, that suffered from being ”the last”! All underpaid and exploited workers, who actually did the labour to create wealth for ”the first”!

So in this way karma makes the first to be the last, and also the last to be the first, as no energy is in vain and all underpaid work are the seeds of personal future wealth and prosperity – this is solid ground for future joy and happiness!

As above – so below!

This ancient text from Hermes Trismegistus: ”That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing” – carries the truth of the principle of life units and the correspondence between micro- and macrocosm. The awareness of our organism, being a universe for billions of microbeings, expands, due to the law of karma, our responsibility, even to embrace microlife within . As size is only an illusion, any microlife is as important as our own, and as awareness grows, we will change our lifestyle accordingly to create health and harmony for all those tiny brothers and sisters within. This will evidently create health, not only in our body, but even in nature around us, as the body of macrocosm is linked to microcosm by this ancient law of karma – as above, so below!

The humble shall inherrige the world!

Even the New Age community tends to enhance self esteem and material progress as a measure of succes! In the context of therapy and encounter groups the emphasis is often to release blockage and inhibition to evolve a more outgoing personality with social or verbal skills. How does a humble person fit in here? How do we measure the quality of humanity in our fellow beings? How do we differ between a truly humble person and one who is blocked or inhibited by trauma?

In the future world kingdom of humanity, we will find means to make this differentiation better! This will be the time when we actually choose leaders from their human qualities and not their ambition. There will be no more need of expensive political campaigns, as the obvious leader makes no fuss of himself, but is acknowledged only by his ethics and talents of real human leadership! Such a person will appear honest and humble, but not without power and determination, when it calls for strong decisions and announcements. There will be no hesitation, when it comes to the core of human ethics as in the declaration of human rights and other standards of real human moral conduct.

The understanding of reincarnation and karma as the law of destiny, will on a larger scale change the earth. Politics and state government will transform into divine rulership, put in the hands of humble, but strong leaders! There will be no room for ego in the corridors of power any more, but only sincerity and true humbleness springing from the source of divine wisdom and grace. Finally the new global leaders are chosen from those who gained cosmic consciousness through natural spiritual evolution – cosmic beings with that deep unconditional love for all living beings, that organically creates wonderful, warm and healthy humble human beings!

The divine paradox

There is a smart shortcut to become a Guru and to sustain the guru status among your followers. Your just play ball with the divine paradox – the question of reality and illusion. From the divine reality, existence is just ” something that is” – the indescribable core of eternity -”life” or ”God”. But creation transforms this into the illusion of matter and contrast, caught in time, to be availbable for physical senses. So we have two kinds of reality: The eternal, universal and the timely, local – two sides of the same coin as the very paradox of the living being, with the eternal core -the ”I”, the creator, who by his creative faculty makes the illusion of matter -the local world of time and space. In the analysis of Martinus this is the trinity of the 3 X, the code of life, the secret of the living being as seen in the symbol. ( Click the symbol for a deeper explanation!)


The smart Guru, is not a real Guru – as the enlightened spiritual leader, who walked the path before would be – but only a hoax, who by the trick of illusion, makes the disciple feel stupid and inferior, by constantly playing ball with this paradox. The hoax rule is simple – when the question is local, answer with the universal and visa versa! Example: (local) What time is it? (Universal) Time is eternal! or (Universal) What is time? (Local) Half past 5! ….so the disciple constantly feel stupid and the status of the Guru being superior is maintained! Of coarse, there might be enlightened Gurus, who consciously use paradox to question the nature of existence, (as the Zen Koan paradoxes) but this should be in an open, honest dialog with the disciple, knowing that we are all equal. And of coarse, the karma of cheating creates destiny of being cheated and misguided in future lives, so every time we are dissapointed on leadership, we have an exellent chanse to refine our own honesty and leadership skills!

The paradox of God is naturally part of the divine paradox, as well. How can the all knowing, all loving God allow suffering in the world, if he even is allmighty with the power to avoid it? Not to mention the question why he created so much unhappiness and pain in the first place, as he would know it from the start! And can we call him allmighty, if we place a devil as responsable for all evil?

A modern concept of God, based on the justice of reincarnation and karma solve this paradox, with no use for either the devil or hell. From the outlook of God, there is no evil – only eternal laws of life, the ultimat perpetuom mobile to secure never ending life experience and life renewal through spiritual evolution. What we call evil or bad, is just a nessesary contrast to make the illusion real. Without shadow – no light, without yin – no yang, without pain – no joy!

And even in the darkest moment of horrow, there are sparks of lights to give hope an comfort! Guardian angles hear our praers and help to put someone in our way to ease the pain and give support and relief. This is the moment where we harvest ”good karma”, as we once gave help and comfort to those in need, now is the time to get it back! So little by little we gain new faith in God, and better and better understanding in how the darkness of suffering can be part of an allmighty, all loving and all knowing God -the Universe as the ultimate living being!

Suffering

onsdag, mars 3rd, 2010

The world crises is not only about money and terror, but even nature disasters as earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes. Mother earth is alive with a potent immune system that we call weather, climate and nature catastrophes. In the cosmic scale, it all makes sense, that the organic defence system of our planet is reacting on pollution, global warming and other man made crises. It’s a historical fact that the winters of the great wars have been severe cold in the temperated latitudes, as the chill before a planetarian fever. Are the present cold winters a new chill of a coming world war III?

What ever form the crises takes, the result is suffering for millions, and without the perspective of reincarnation and karma, it makes no sense at all! But in the light of cause and effect -the law of karma – the mystery of suffering is solved! In this brilliant logic of cosmos, no one can harvest injustice, but only the effect of it’s own act -karma! So even the major crises, wars and catastrophes as every days suffering due to illness and loneliness, is self imposed!

As the universe is friendly, we need to understand and acknowledge the meaning of suffering, in all it’s shapes and variations – the main quest of future evolution on earth! As described in earlier bloggs, meat-eating karma is the major trigger of collective karma release as accidents and nature disasters!. Man is a slow learner, and the growth of humanity through suffering, takes many lifetimes, before the empathy and brotherly love expands to include even animal life. But for each strike of nature, for each tear and pain, the ability to imagine the suffering of our fellow beings, grows stronger -and one fine day our sensitivity will stretch out and embrace the victims of our eating habits, to that extent, that it becomes impossible to kill to live.

At that point in human evolution, to hurt another being, hurts as much on our own body, and the awareness and understanding of the killing and animal suffering in the meat industry, as well as the unhealthy influence on our microbeings, makes it obvious to choose the vegetarian lifestyle -not because of fashion or trends, or nutrition science research, but because of a deep ethical conviction rooted in life experience of former meat-eating karma!

This is a major graduation in the school of life, and the major power of peace work and healing the planet! It’s a long way to go, but for every new generation, we will see more and more ethical vegetarians, in all those reincarnated victims of past disasters and wars.These are the future of peace loving, animal loving emphatic beings who will refuse to bear arms and kill animals! These are role models for a haunted civilization.

So the future quest is to embrace life in all aspects – even the teachings of karma! With a higher quality of human awareness, we can learn the lesson faster, realize our own part in the creation of crises and disaster, and start new behavior to exchange old habits and conventions. Is it not miraculous, that we can start world peace and solve global warming at our dinner table, just by awareness of our eating habits? Step by step, we will change our patterns to acts of life instead of acts of death – and by this create a new and better destiny, both for our own future, as well as for both micro- and macrocosm in our organism and on or planet! That’s when we will all graduate in a master degree in real humanity!

Past life therapy

onsdag, januari 20th, 2010

Reincarnation research is very difficult, because it’s very hard to verify. The best job done in that area is probably that of Ian Stevenson, investigating the testimony of young children, telling about past life memories, in such an early age, that we can rule out social contamination of evidence! Stevenson focused on those countries, where reincarnation is normally accepted by tradition, because parents here are more likely to accept the child’s behavior, and hear them out. Western parents would easily judge the kids stories as pure fantasy, and the child would soon learn to shut it’s mouth!

By visiting a child with past life memories, Stevenson would write down all details and even take the child to the place he claim to have lived in a former life. Often the child spontaneous recognize old family, from that lifetime , and can find his way in the old home, even finding secret hidden toys, once placed there in a safe place, that no one would no but himself! In all those over 3000 cases, Stevenson have been investigating, there should be proof enough, but most scientists are still reluctant to call it coincidence or hoax! Here is an interview and an example: http://reluctant-messenger.com/reincarnation-proof.htm .

Strange enough, Stevenson claims, that he found no evidence of karma in his research. The nature of major karmic waves are obviously more prone to jump several lifetimes before impact, so investigating two incarnations in a row – like Stevenson does – is not sufficient to show the karmic pattern. We need another method to get the whole picture, it seems!

Past life therapy consists of several techniques to recall memories of past lives, among which hypnosis or regression are the most used! Sadly these methods are not waterproof, as human mind is easily influenced by wishful thinking, fantasy, association of experience from the present lifetime as television, reading and media and even conscious or unconscious constructions to please the hypnotist or the therapist! And as we open our mind for parapsychology, many other new explanations ads up as the possibility to read another persons mind -telepathy, to read the future – precognition, to read objects – or to read the Akasha chronicle – the memory of mother earth herself, who hold all memories of all who ever lived on the planet!

But to realize that it’s difficult, is not the same as impossible! As in all complex methods, we just need to be more cautious and find a way to make a better evaluation of what is realistic, and what is not! Let’s make a list of signs and qualities, that can help us find the gold in the soil!

  • The emotional content in a memory springs from true experience. The details in the memory might be questioned, but the emotional response is real, and can be examined deeper!
  • XENOGLOSY – the ability to talk and understand another language, during regression, that the subject don’t know in normal life. Sometimes there might even be old dialects, long forgotten, that nobody know how to pronounce anymore!
  • Consequence in architecture, clothing fashion, and other smaller details from everyday life, that the subject have no knowledge about in present life.
  • Geographic markings like names of cities, villages, or other places, that can be confirmed by research!
  • Historical events, climate catastrophes, plaques and crises that can be traced in research!
  • The logic of a life. A true past life recollection has the same quality as real life, a fascinating coherent story, with all the sidetracks, details and variations that we know from our own life. A fantasy, a daydream or a hoax construction is more fragmentary and paradox. Even if real life can show many surprises and sudden turns, it always end up as a logic whole – especially in the perspective of several lifetimes.
  • The lack of famous personality is always a good indication of a true story. All the reincarnations of Jesus, Napoleon and Cleopatra is more frequent in the corridors of mental hospitals!
  • Causality of phobia and illness. To experience past life trauma, that can explain anxiety, phobia, aversion or sympathies, or physical ailment, handicap or weakness not explainable in the present life, wonderfully confirms the logic of cause and effect through karma and reincarnation!
  • Evidence of habitual behavior! Many lifetimes of aristocracy will tend to give you a personality with a flair for luxury and lack of workers stamina and endurance, as will farmers life give you physical strength and a natural joy and skill to use your body in hard labor!
  • Physical constitution and birthmarks will indicate your former lifestyle and death wounds. Many tribes of american Indians would examine the body of a new born child, to look after a birth mark, that would match the death wound of a diseased chief, as a sign to confirm the reincarnation.

Other advice to valuate a past life experience can be found in the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Reincarnation .

An example of Past life Therapy experience:

A woman in her forties is very unhappy, telling her therapist about an event, she can’t understand! The week before she suddenly hit her son, who walked down the staircase in there house, – hit him in the face without any reason or warning! She wanted help to investigate this strange act of violence!

The therapist used a method of regression, that utilize emotional trigger. By concentrating on the bodily sensation of rage,that she felt in the moment of the act, a spontaneous bridge to the origin is created, a tunnel back in time to the traumatic incident, that is still alive in her body, causing the strange aversion towards her own son.

She was immediately taken back in history to ancient Rome – at least this was her description. She saw herself, as a young Romain beauty on her way to the building of a bath facility. She vividly described the marble construction with a big staircase entrance bordered by columns in classic roman style. On her way up the stairs, she suddenly halted, seeing a young handsome nobleman coming smiling down towards her, from the top of the stairs! She got scared, took a step back, stumbled on the stairs and fell backwards, banging her head on the edge so unhappily, that she died!

With the help of the therapist, she was guided back in that same life, to investigate the story, and a romantic encounter took form! She saw herself as a peasant girl of seldom beauty, going to town to sell the family crops on the market. Her description of houses, clothing and atmosphere was full of detail and convincing in it’s consequence fitting clearly with historic facts from the roman empire. One day a young charming nobleman came riding in to the market on his wagon, fine dressed in leather armor and leather sandals, classically bound up his strong calves! Seeing the beautifull girl he made contact, slowly winning her with his charm and status!

Love between classes being impossible, they met in secrecy, and during regression, a wonderfull romantic story unfolds, more intimate and astonishing, than the best Hollywood movie! The favorit spot of rendevous, seemed to be the roman bath, swimming and making love in the water in the moonlight. The therapist role is here to put questions to help focussing on details in the scene, like forrinstance, the cealing construction of marble balks, with open air squares in between, through which the lovers could see the full moon!

As the secret love affair went on, the rich nobleman installed his love in a house in town, where they could meet and enjoy each other! After some time the girl got pregnant and came down with a child. The young father lost his interest in the girl, and moved on to other innocent beauties, as was common for his kind at that time!

Years went by, when the young mother had to raise her child alone, feeling abandoned and alone and finally bitter! On day she was going to the bath, and the incident on the staircase happened to end her life so suddenly and dramatic!

The woman in her present life, recognized her son as the nobleman in the ancient life, and the therapist could guide her through the process of forgiveness, that is the essence of the healing part of past life therapy! Often more investigation is needed, fully to understand the life and background of the opponent in a regression. In this case, to understand how this young man was brought up and what kind of  social rules and normalities you could expect from that! It is important not to judge past behavior with modern eyes and ethics, but to get a deep understanding of  cultural conduct and ethics in the local time frame. To role reverse and put yourself in the shoes of the other, is a wonderful method that can start a fruitful process of forgiveness!

This woman could easily understand this, and even bring forgiveness back into the house, by telling her son about the experience. He was open and positive to the phenomena, and they had a good and deep healing talk about it all!

It’s unique though, to actually tell about such an experience to the persons involved in the regression scene, and it’s not necessary for the healing purpose. Forgiveness is what takes part in your heart, and is not dependent on the receiver! Often the object of forgiveness has passed away already, but the therapy works anyhow!

It’s typical for past life therapy, that the first stop of regression is in a life as a victim! The emotional bridge often points to dramatic trauma from death experience, imposed by violence or abuse. This can explain mystical phobias, fears and anxiety from this lifetime, but it’s still a karmic effect of an earlier cause, so to heal the person totally, we need to go deeper! Further regression will reveal the chain of lifetimes that let to this effect, and somewhere, way back in time, we will find the long suppressed memory of us as the villain – the bad guy! This is much harder to get in touch with, and even much harder to forgive! It might take many sessions to get that deep in therapy, and great motivation from the client.  But as many roles from past lives might still be around in other roles in present life, the process of forgiveness can change and transform life in many unexpected ways! Apart from freedom from old chains and emotional burdens from unsolved past trauma,  it often heal physical symptoms and illness too.

In this kind of therapy, it’s not important to know what is real memories or what is fantasy or symbols. The emotional response is true, and the therapy works even on the symbolic level, as forinstance in Leuner’s symbol drama . Some clients though,  do have a richness in detail, that makes it convincing as real memories, and it happens that a client will use his or her holiday to visit places from a regression experience. It is told, that it is a very strong feeling to actually find your own tombstone on the same graveyard, where you under regression witnessed your own burial! Even if this is not a scientific proof to modern science, it’s proof enough for the client and the therapist!

Awareness

söndag, januari 10th, 2010

Awareness is a popular concept in New Age circles, and is defined en many ways concerning the art of ”being in the now” , ”mindfullness” , and in many spiritual groups inspired of eastern philosophies! It’s often indicated that modern man is to much in either the future or in the past, and so less present here and now!

It’s easy to understand, that regrets of past mistakes and future worries can fill up our mind, to that degree, that it consumes all our consciousness, so we miss the present…… but let’s go a bit deeper and investigate some paradoxes, that follow these thoughts!

First, let´s put the question: What kind of creature is always living in the present?  Yes, Animals! Is it not what make us human, that we have the capacity to expand our consciousness from the now, till both past and future? And is it not an expanded awareness to be able to remember our mistakes and plan for a better future? Humanity is to bother! To be careful not to do the same mistake again, when it comes to our relation with our fellow creatures – both man and animal? To live on pure instinct, as an animal, guided by survival instinct and hormones only, is not the kind of awareness we would like at the present state of evolution!

So the art of awareness is not solely to live fully, here and now, but even to be conscious in both past and future, in a balanced way, so we can learn from our mistakes and create a more human future for all involved, without missing the thrill of now! The paradox is, that an unbalanced indulgence in the now, takes us back in evolution, more close to animal life, where we very easily will consume our fellow citizens now, due to lack of good planning! Poor planning and poor updating of earlier experiences will create more kaos and mistakes, and thus more need for help from others, consuming their chance to recreate in whatever now, they need for health and inspiration!

Of course, the karmic paradox in this is, that helping each other out in chaos and crises, might be just the right focus to help us into the now again! It’s a well known fact that people come closer in times of crises, and the now and the awareness of real human encounters is much more alive then, than in  escapism of media, film and literature! So in this way karma do help us out again!

The closest we get to that kind of awareness in daily life, in the present state of earth evolution,  might be in therapy groups and other kind of encounter groups, where skilled leaders create such a safe atmosphere, that we can let go defenses and share our most vulnerable side, with no risk of abuse or psychological violation of our integrity. This is where catharsis help us release inner tension and blocks and help us to insight of old trauma and support us in the healing act of forgiveness! Being totally ”naked” and open in sharing our inner most, is a unique awareness, that gives us a glimpse of how a totally human society would be like, in the future real human kingdom of peace and harmony.

In the cosmic perspective, the highest form for awareness is cosmic consciousness -the ability to see through the universe in both time and space. This kind of awareness is totally unlimited, it’s the divine consciousness itself! Legends and spiritual traditions talks about this as the highest form of initiation and modern spiritual science acknowledge it as the ultimate goal of spiritual evolution. The forerunners of this natural state of human evolution are what we call ”cosmic glimpse”  – a very short spiritual experience, often in seconds only, where we suddenly know that life is eternal, the universe is living and infinite, that we are all one and that all is very good!

This awareness of oneness – that all living creatures are linked and in the inner core, the same divine presence, will instantly change our lives! We will know, as clear as bright sunlight, that we are all brothers and sisters -including animals, plants and mineral, and our relation to our fellow beings, will change our behavior and conducts of daily life! Being most concerned of the wellbeing of all living creatures around us, we will do our very best, not to harm anyone – especially creatures with a developed nervous system like humans and animals! Any pain or suffering on a fellow being will instantly be felt in our own organism, due to the extended empathy of this conscious oneness. It’s obvious, that it would be impossible to eat any kind of meat or fish, or even animal products that are waste products of the meat industry, with this kind of awareness!

So it is important to differ between the use of words like awareness and oneness in this deeper concept, and the more common use as a feeling of oneness or awareness in different New Age doctrines and methods! We should be cautious not to fall into new movements of mass suggestion, where the strong sensation itself is taken for proof of higher levels of spiritual consciousness! Man is a highly suggestive creature, and can easily be seduced to believe that a strong ecstatic feeling or sensation is proof enough, but are there not thousands of examples in religious history, of how this strong suggestive sense of  ”oneness with God” or the feeling of being the chosen one , can turn leaders into the worst kind of inquisitors  and crowds into holy warriors? Too many wars are conducted in the name of God, and too many condemnations from spiritual conviction!

So we need to be aware of the difference between a state of mind and a state of evolution.  Therapy, encounter groups, spiritual disciplines like meditation and yoga and the suggestive power of strong spiritual leaders, can help us experience another state of mind and higher awareness and feeling of oneness in connection to other beings, nature and everyday life experience.  This is like peeping through the keyhole to divine bliss, and can give us good inspiration on our path ahead, but it is nothing compared with the open door of cosmic consciousness, where our nervous system and organism is fully developed and prepared to be aware in Gods prime consciousness.

Humans are eager and impatient, and the longing for inner peace and joy, makes it popular to seek shortcuts to paradise. Art of living could be to find peace with exact that level of spiritual evolution, that comes natural at each step on the eternal ladder. There are no harm in getting inspiration and to peek through keyholes, but if we ever get disappointed of the setbacks of daily life , that can contrast immensely to those rare moments of feeling total aware, we can get comfort in knowing, that there is no hurry – and that we will all get there in due time!

If we are in doubt of our natural state of human evolution, the most dependable valuation is, only to judge the tree from it’s fruits. A true spiritual leader is always walking the path ahead as an example for all followers! His footsteps should be bordered with signs of real human qualities as brotherly love, humbleness, forgiveness and concrete signs of respect for all living creatures on earth. Awareness in ecology and vegetarianism are obvious examples!

So when karma knocks on our door and demands attention to irritating earthly responsibilities and duties, abruptly taking us away from our wonderful meditation  of oneness and awareness, it’s a good chance to practice our new talents of humanity, and maybe we can change our state of mind in forgiveness and tolerance, being fully aware, that the annoying person that knocks, is a perfect mirror of our own past, and thus little by little reach the next state of evolution.  To be at peace with our own natural state of evolution, is to be tolerant and patient to us selves. There might be setbacks -trial and error -and it might take much longer, than we think;  but eventually -as all is very good – we will all get there!

War and Terror

torsdag, januari 7th, 2010

The origin of warfare are rooted deep in the animal kingdom of survival instinct and rival combat. As intelligens evolve in homo sapiens, war is expanded to other areas of life as vanity and a taste for power demands stronger weapons and bigger army’s.  Sadly the development of big religious institutions boosted warfare, as it became so much easier to kill in the name of God! Besides the ”holy” battles, a lot of other mass suggestion induced wars where born from political propaganda and racist convictions of what is the just motive for war! So many fear catalyzed generalizations have escalated to massive crises of war and terror, to that extend,  that nobody really  remember why they are fighting  anymore!

But as the world evolves, and consciousness slowly grows in mankind, the ideals and expressions changes. Instead of an imperialistic conquering army, we now have a defense army, and the world media are keen to detect any violation of human rights, even in modern warfare and defense activity as in the battle against terrorism.

Man is still half animal, though, and it’s easy to awaken the sleeping monster within, if a skilled politician or agitator can manipulate the fear for an enemy, even if he exist in fantasy only! One act of terror is enough to spark the ”just war for peace” – and suddenly the cause rules the way, and it looks like a huge setback in  humanity when we take arms to kill in the name of peace and justice – as a step backwards in evolution.

What is going on- seen from the spiritual side of world crises? And what kind of karmatic patterns can explain the unspeakable suffering of modern war? Let’s try to sort out a few cosmic perspectives:

  1. There is a masterplan
  2. The purpose of war
  3. The quest for peace begins within
  4. Revenge and forgiveness
  5. The principle of Hunger and Saturation

1.  The fine balance of Cosmos is not only keeping planets in orbits and heat in the stars, but even rules destiny of man. If ”all is good” -there must be a plan, even with war! After each world war our civilization on earth agree to put an end to war, and big efforts are made to prevent future armed crises! After the last war, the UN was created as an embryo to a future world government of peace and cooperation.  The foundation of Human Rights and the birth of all humanitarian organisations to support global healthcare and welfare, to overcome poverty and hunger, springs from a common longing for peace and inspire us to follow the masterplan towards an international world kingdom on earth! If mother earth was a town, there would be no sherif, no law, no justice – it would still be ”the wild west” , where every citizens have to bare arms to protect himself. But the plan is real civilization, and slowly the embryo will grow and take form, but though it is only minutes for mother earth, it can be several thousands of years for man, before maturity transform the embryo of UN to a supreme world government of peace and justice!

2.  For this transformation, we badly need guidance, and guess who the best teacher is? Yes – karma! Imagine what kind of lesson that could persuade the superpowers of earth to hand over there armed forces to a neutral world peace force? The thrill of power is very hard to let go, I’m afraid, and many religious and political issues will still be ruling the outcome of conflicts in favor of local and in opposition of global goals, for many decades ahead! What we need is that level of compassion and tolerance, that only karma can create! Only through cause and effect, will the bullet return to the shooter and the missile to its origin, and teach exactly that physical lesson, that will turn the soldier to become a pacifist for all future! And we already see them all around – young men and woman, who deny to carry arms, because the past life trauma of war sufferings are so alive in there imagination and compassion, that they are unable to hurt anyone anymore! They have learned the lesson of peace – the lesson of karma!

3.  Again a shift of perspective can help us get the ball rolling! The peacework begin inside! Make peace with youself -and you can be in peace with the world! War is not only outer events on a battlefield, but even mental war of inner conflict and destructive thoughts towards your neighbor! The act of tolerance begins with the understanding of unity of all living beings in the universe, including those in our own microcosm! Thoughts and feelings of aggression, hate, depression, bitterness and so  creates war and terror among our microbeings, as well as intolerance in our surroundings. To practice tolerance and understanding – to mentally place yourself in the shoes of your opponent – to think positively of those you fear and dislike – is the strongest and highest form for meditation ever! This will lighten our spirit and bring peace of mind, and at the same time bring peace to the cosmos within!  Imagine if our leaders could be masters of that discipline?

4.  So why is this masterplan taking so long? It seems as if man is a creature of habit! Many old traditions stick to our behavior automatically, as if they where an organic part of our being. And so they are! A little spiritual living organ in our superstructure still repeats the act of revenge in subconscious mind and soul, even if we try to practice the art of forgiveness in our most conscious and focussed moments! This is due to the principle of talent creation. That old habits only can vanish, when it is not used, and when a new talent or skill of opposite value is learned instead. The first wish of change comes from the awareness through karma,  and to exchange revenge with forgiveness is hard work of practice, step by step, little by little, before the new capacity of love and forgiveness is as automatic as the old instinct of hate and vengeance. It takes much more bravery to stop defending yourself and to use your new found skills of humanity, than just to fall in to old instincts of survival!  When you see your own past mirrored in the eyes of your enemy, he is instantly transformed to your friend! Forgive him -and you forgive yourself!

5.  Some soldiers are not done fighting yet! Our world need some big crises still, to release the war karma of history, and learn the lesson of peace! For this, new battlefields on earth will be a good teaching ground for younger souls to learn – and in this epoch, we will see how eager soldiers will incarnate to go to war! But thanks to karma, this is the best way to create pacifist – through the cosmic law of hunger and saturation. The hunger of power and excitement – the hunger for arms – the hunger for blood will very soon bee saturated, and the law of contrast will awaken the new longing for peace – a new hunger!


Our history is a history of war, so the saturation is nearly done and the hunger for peace is new and fresh! Young people is still in the repetition period, so most soldiers are not updated from all past life experiences before they reach 30. Maybe this is one of the reasons of all suicides of veterans.  The awareness of maturity deeply regrets acts of war done in ignorance of youth, as they where done by another person! And in a way they where, representing a state of evolution from lifetimes long gone! But for each lifetime, repetition of soldier lives will be pushed further back in age, just to be expressed and saturated in innocent games of fantasy wars and computer games. The grown up person will be fully conscious in his peace loving conviction so he can be a peace worker, both within and in society!

These are the new leaders we need to fulfill the masterplan! The rulers of the future world government are leaders of wisdom and tolerance. The only power they conduct, is the power of cosmic truth! We will see leaders with outer humbleness and inner strength, brave to depend fully on the law of karma, knowing that the only protection from war, is peace! Being the only armed force on earth, they will never need to use it!

As an apple ripe, and a flower bloom and sets seeds, the masterplan will succeed – and there will come a time when karma only brings joy and happiness, where all our sincere efforts as peace workers in wartimes, bounce back in love and compassion, served by all wonderful peaceloving people, we once forgave,  helped and saved!

The threat of global warming with extreme weather conditions, nature catastrophes, hunger, pollution, epidemics  and water crises are a wakeup call for global awareness, that now – maybe for the first time in history – concern all mankind on earth! In spite of obvious changes in climate, the established scientific society is still in conflict about cause and effect!


How can the perspective of karma bring light to this issue? Well, two important cosmic principles might help us out:

The principle of life units and the principle of perspective.

In a living universe everything is alive – living beings within living beings – and so it’s obvious that planet earth is alive too! And if it wasn’t for man -she would be a perfect organism in ecologic balance! Man -being the braincells in her organism – is apparently going nuts, destroying his own host!  And now we fear, that this stupidity might indeed end up with a total catastrophe -that the microcosm of mankind can kill the macrocosm of mother earth, and so even itself!

How is karma working in this area? What kind of teaching are we facing in near future, as this escalates further?

Well, from the basics, that there is no such thing as injustice, we are looking for logic, even in cathastrophies like Tsunamis, earthquakes, vulcanic eruptions and hurricanes.

Let’s define some new concepts to understand this on a deeper level:

  1. Collective Karma.
  2. Karma of principle
  3. Karma of perspective
  4. The meaning of suffering

1.  Great disasters are often seen as a proof of coincidence. It seems as if all different kind of people will be among victims in spite of religion, ethnic roots, education, status and so on. Even if the Tsunami strikes mostly at small fishermans villages round the cost, it even strikes among modern tourists along the luxury beach resorts and from a major earthquake in a big city, no one is safe! ….But then again, from the point of karma, everybody is just getting the best education, especially directed to him or her, served by a cosmic logistic process called collective karma! Imagine the spiritual activity in months or maybe years ahead, that prepare for such a karmic release! So in this perspective it is not coincidence, who will be on the beach that moment, when the wave roll in!

Lots of personal stories can confirm some of this activity when people get a hunch or a precognition to skip that vacation, or fall ill, or come too late for the flight or getting stopped by other obstacles – if their spiritual need does not fit that special karmic lesson.  But even for those who do get hit – it’s still the best and most loving lesson for the spirit to get exactly that experience of effect -originally created by it’s own ignorance in lifetimes long ago!

2.  But what exactly are we learning? Do we really need that amount of destructive power to evolve on this civilized state of mankind? Well, we need to look deeper in the cosmic structure, to find logic in this! What are the analysis of disasters and accidents? It’s all about violence and death without hate or revenge! So are there anywhere in civilized modern life, where we are blind to such a behavior in our selves?

Yes, sadly there are! The animal kingdom is full of innocent victims of our hands! Modern man take it for granted to have the right to kill his younger brothers and sisters – animals – to eat and clothe, without the slightest ideas of the karmic energy he creates every day by this. And as in the disasters and accidents, there are no hatred involved. We don’t hate the animal we slaughter, as the Tsunami don’t hate us when it strikes! This is how karma is matched by principle!

All this killing and induced suffering through thousands of years is piling up for such collective outburst of disastrous karma, with the only purpose to help us understand, on our own bodies, what suffering is all about. Only through this hard way, will our compassion grow to that extend, that we will be unable to eat meat or fish ever again!

In the cosmic perspective, we have lot’s of time -lot’s of lifetimes! Man is a slow learner, so we might need to die many times, before the lesson is fully learned! And remember, this is no judgement or casting of guilt, because we have all walked the same road!

3.  From our perspective it’s hard to understand why mother nature strikes so hard on us. Even if we are not taking so good care of the planet, the power of nature is far beyond our control, when it shows it’s full power in disasters and catastrophes! How can we ever have earned that amount of destruction?

Well, this is all about perspective. In comparison to a planet, we are small -like cells in mother earth. But in another view, we are a planet ourselves, inhabited by small beings -our own tissue-cells! We are fooled by the principle of perspective, to believe, that we are more important, than our own cells -our micro life. But do a braincell in our brain think that it is small and unimportant? And what kind of nature catastrophe do we in fact strike against these small inhabitants, indulging in unhealthy living and destructive illness of our bodies? Again, we do not hate our braincells when we drown them in alcoholic tsunamis, or kill them in volcanic inflammation and fever, or break our organs in cancerous or traumatic earthquakes! It’s just ignorance – we don’t know what we are doing! Until karma help us to open our eyes, mirroring back from macrocosm, what we ourselves serve to our microcosm – ”so in the big – so in the small”!

4.  The meaning of suffering is one of the great riddles of life. How can a all-loving, all-seeing, all-mighty GOD impose so much suffering to his own creation? The only logical answer is, that even suffering is part of GOD’s love! So by the justice of  karma, we can begin to understand the real wonders of the teaching of life. How pain and suffering from our own ignorant hands are returned with cosmic precision to teach us awareness and compassion and so refine our behavior and our mind and heart away from the unconsciousness of the zone of killing for living!

For a cosmic mind, these principles above is reality, even in everyday life, ruling every act and every step ahead! The only concern is then how to help and comfort all living beings, including the animals and mother earth, and to create a new lifestyle that will give life instead of take lives! A healthy, humanitarian, ecological,  vegetarian lifestyle is a natural solution – and this only thanks to the personal karmic lesson of accidents and disasters, that we created for our own evolution through the law of cause and effect, through many, many lifetimes!


The good news is, that this perspective gives us back the key in our hands! We might not hear the calling to be an environmental activist or a green politician, but we don’t need to be passive and helpless!

We are the master of our own universe within and can save the planet of our own organism to begin with, and thus save millions of lives from those microcosmic disasters and create positive karma for our own future lifetimes on earth.The cosmic logistics will adapt to this new karmic situation and slowly create a wonderful environment with harmony and beauty for us to enjoy, as our own inner world is healing and our microbeings are rejoicing in total organic harmony within!
