What are the forms our Spiritual Lessons take on?
We create our own Karma. Karma is a cycle of cause and effect that is active in the lives of those who venture towards the activity of creation. Through our creation we can create with pleasant cause or unpleasant cause. Respective of this choice we will receive pleasant effect or unpleasant effect.
Through the two primary human emotions, love and fear, we are gifted with all the lessons that we need to encounter in out lifetimes. Our lessons of love come in the form of unity, compassion, enlightenment, peace, and various other forms that reflect the energy of the soul. Lessons of fear present themselves as greed, jealousy, anger, resentment, betrayal and other energies that live and thrive within the realm of our human personality or five sense reality.
Our individual cause and effect Karma can be created consciously or unconsciously depending on our level of enlightenment and willingness to be accountable for our own actions. Regardless of our acceptance of our own accountability, the cycle of lesson of experience and consequence still goes on.
To listen to a Blogtalk Radio broadcast on the concept of Spiritual Lessons go to the link below:
Whatever it is that we're encountering in our reality is a universal response to the same energy that first originated inside of us. If we encounter anger, affection, hurtful experiences, or even unconditional acceptance it is because we have offered tot he universe these same emotions.
This offering does not always happen in a deliberate fashion but, often occurs as a result of a latent, or subconscious, energy that we have within. If we have anger inside of us, even repressed anger, we will be responded to by the omniverse/universe with anger. Our response should always be one from our love expression. That love expression does not always need to be passivity or, even tolerance. Love is connecting with the divine will of Olodumare.
Heaven is the place of cause. Earth is the realm of effect. The life we create we create through our spiritual causes. The objective of becoming spiritually aware and enlightened is to interact with our spirits at a level where we can create our own causes consciously.
Despite the experience we can never see it separate from the evolution of our soul mission. So, when we choose to judge another based on the effects manifesting in their lives, we miss the proper aim of our judgment. The scrutiny should always be at the source of the effect, not the effect itself. A Soul or Ori will hold the destiny that it needs in order to unfold the lessons that it was built for. Each Soul/Ori has a set of lessons to manifest and bring back to the great collective of soul energy or Emi. This realm is beyond Ur-ANU/Uranus/Heaven.
In our Yoruba we know this lesson set is contained in the Ori Apere and is manifested by the design of the Ori Akunleya, Ori Akunlegba, and Ori Ayanmo.
The more we choose to go through the process of spiritual healing and spiritual growth, the more the universe will respond with resistance to that cause to present us the opportunity to learn from our own causes.
Once we get to the point that we are consciously creating our reality we still have to deal with the effects of our precious causes. The universe can be gracious in this and wait until we are able to actually respond appropriately (with love energy) to the effects of the causes we've created. This video with former Heavy Weight Champion Mike Tyson highlights this reality.
