At any point in life we have the past (karma) and the present (the Will power or our Higher power of Intention). Most often people are overwhelmed when the seeds of karma, that is cause, manifests its effects. It could be physical, mental or emotional or any challenge that could come to an individual as the result of the past karma. But if you trust
in the Power of your Mind, the power of your Will or Intention and open yourself to that Higher energy field within you, you start to receive vibration of higher frequency; you get thoughts of Higher wisdom and profundity.
When you trust in the Power of your Mind, you do go through the pains and tribulations, if that is what the karma delivers at that moment. But you are not low or down or depressed; instead you have a great confidence and faith both in your Intention of coming out of it triumphant and also being enriched by the lessons that the Law of Karma came to give you. You are humbled; you know that deep within the recess of your heart is the Abode of Peace and
Divinity and that you can always trust in the power of the Divine to guide you through any challenges of life that is posed by the karmic consequences.
In this life what ever seeds you have sown in the field of your unconscious or subconscious mind, today or tomorrow, they will bear fruits for sure. As you sow, so you reap; is not a punishment. It is only the Law that governs life to take you from the lower to the Higher dimension of Wisdom and Enlightenment. You experience pain only to realize the pain in pain, and pleasure in pleasures. But as you mature in life and experience, you start realizing there is the higher reality to these transient peripheral stuffs of life. Then you start to have stronger Intention and Will to experience the Higher in you and not go by the mundane tinsel routine of physicality.
Karma brings you to the zone of Will and Intention to one day release you from the illusion of unhappiness and frustrations into the world of freedom and Celebration of Life.
