The video below lists 12 laws of karma that have stood the test of time and are as true today as they have been in the past. Humans are becoming more and more aware of what it means to lead a conscious life and how to do it.
Here are the 12 Laws of Karma.
1. The Great Law.
As you sow, so shall you reap.
This is also known as the "Law of cause and effect" and is a very simple law which states that life mirrors what you put out and gives it back to you.
If you are not happy with a certain aspect of your life, monetary for example, think of how much value you are giving to the world and what you can do to help out more people - and as you sow, so shall you reap.
2. The Law of Creation.
Life doesn't just happen. It requires our participation.
I hear people complain all the time about something that happened to them. But the truth is that nothing happens without our participation - we are creating at all times. It is important to realize that even if we do nothing - we did something!; at least in the sense that we could have created something else, and then the end result would be different too.
3. The Law of Humility.
You can't change something if you refuse to accept it.
Accept what is going on in your life first, even if you do not like it, and with that you will be able to open the doors to changing it. In fact, change will be joyful and not painful!
4. The Law of Growth.
When we change who and what we are within our hearts, our lives follow suit and change too.
First we have to change our hearts within, then our lives will change too, and not the other way around. The first change is always the change of heart, then comes a change in mentality - and all of that finally manifests itself in our lives.
5. The Law of Responsibility.
We must take responsibility for what is in our life.
This law ties in with many other laws. If we do not accept our responsibility, we are not fully conscious - we are effectively in the passengers seat of our life
6. The Law of Connection.
Neither the first step nor the last are of greater significance, as they were both needed to accomplish the task.
Every journey starts with the first step and ends with the last, but without all the countless steps we take between the first and the last, we cannot accomplish anything.
The first step and the last are the most memorable ones for sure, but hardly more significant than any of the others. Respect the journey, respect the whole process of getting to where you want to go.
7. The Law of Focus.
You cannot think of two things at the same time.
Even though some people are great at multitasking, you can only 100% truly focus on one thing at a time - and then do that one thing great! Our guided meditation can help you focus even better - and it's free to listen to online!
8. The Law of Giving and Hospitality.
Give without expectation of receiving anything in return.
Just like you reap what you sow - you get as much as you give. Not necessarily from the same person though. What you give to someone, the Universe can give you back in so many ways - and it's best to allow the Universe to fulfill your desires the way it sees fit.
9. The Law of Here and Now.
Looking backward to examine what was, or forward to worry about the future, prevents us from being totally in the here and now.
- Let go of your past. I know it can be a burden - but obsessively taking your mind back to replay the events will not help you after a certain point. It is important to remember that our brains do not remember the actual events, rather they remember the last time we imagined those events - so each time they are a bit different.
- Likewise, constantly thinking about what the future will be like and what you want it to be like will hinder you in creating that future today.
10. The Law of Change.
History repeats itself until we learn the lessons we needed to learn.
If you have had the same bad experience at work, no matter how many jobs you changed; or if you seem to keep getting the same jerk boyfriend even if he seems like the nicest guy at first; or if your cool new friends suddenly start treating you just as badly as old 'friends' did... Maybe consider that there is a lesson in all of it for you - one that you have not yet mastered - and when you do master it, the same situations you keep finding yourself in will stop repeating themselves!
11. The Law of Patience and Reward.
True joy comes from doing what we're supposed to be doing, and knowing that the reward will come in its own time.
For some people it is hard to figure out their life purpose. This article might help. For others, they can not be patient enough to see things go through and to get those rewards - and to them I can only say that patience is a skill they can learn and practice.
12. The Law of Significance and Inspiration.
The true value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it.
If we think we are putting great energy into our work and it is not valued, it might be that we should find new work where the energy we put in will be received in a way that we intended it to be received.
