Zero karma

Karma is nothing more than residue from past and present attachments, which develop when we attempt to procure energy from somewhere other than our own essence.

Many of us believe in ome sort of karma, but what is it really? Karma is nothing more than residue from past and present attachments, which develop when we attempt to procure energy from somewhere other than our own essence.

We never need to “get” energy; we have an unending source of this good stuff within us all the time. But when we are upset, angry or anxious, we cannot access this inner pool of peace and vitality, so we frantically try to capture it from someplace else.

Common ways we seek energy when we cannot manifest our own is through other people (via emotional outbursts), by over-consuming comforting substances, or through habitual or addictive behavior.

For example, take someone who has a habit of becoming explosive toward his mate. Each time he gives in to the impulse to explode in order to capture energy, he forcefully infuses the situation with some of his own energy and tries to recapture it through the rage.

This is the same dynamic as trying to feed one’s spirit by drinking too much or chasing one’s spirit by eating too much. All that these behaviors do is provide a short burst of diluted and distorted energy while creating an attachment — and voila — karma.

Karma either keeps you tethered to the unsavory behavior, or it is slowly burned off each time your higher will overrides the impulse to seek immediate energy outside yourself.

Once we override karmic impulses to the point of being fully integrated, we are at zero karma. This is the place where your higher self effortlessly directs you in a way that leads to inner peace, well-being and the highest good for all. Being at zero karma is the true meaning of a “free spirit.”

What is dictating your behaviors? Is it karma or your highest self? Is your spirit bound or free? If, like most of us, you sense that you are bound in certain areas, simply make the decision to move toward freedom. Slowly but surely (with some slip-ups, for sure), you will integrate your attachments and arrive at zero karma.
