“Karma is the Law of Cause and Effect operating in the realm of human life and bringing about adjustments between an individual and other individuals whom he has affected by his thoughts, emotions and actions.”
Knew I had found my answer when I read Genesis 3:19 “You will eat bread by the sweat of your forehead till you return to the ground – for you were taken out of it: you are dust, and you will return to dust.” This was how it all began.The Creator had placed of set of rules when he created Man & Woman. This Man & Woman lived in Paradise, on a plane nearer the Heavens. Disobeying the Creator resulted in their fall. Nothing could be got free of their sweat, for them & their offspring’s.They had to face the challenges and dissolve their bad karma with good deeds. This reincarnation would continue as long as they carried the karmic dust in which attachment to all things had been found. Karma, and the karmic carry forward by the energy generated in thought, word & deed, what is done and what is failed to be done.
An individual’s present situation is thereby explained in reference to actions in his present or previous lifetimes. Karma is the law producing consequence. This life is likened to a field in which our karma is the seed. We harvest exactly what we sow; no less, no more. Based on the total sum of past karma, some feel close to the Pure Being in this life and others feel separated.As a man himself sows, so he himself reaps; no man inherits the good or evil act of another man. The fruit is of the same quality as the action. —Mahabharata, xii.291.22
2 Corinthian 9:6 “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.”
In the eyes of higher beings, the purpose of human life is not merely to be human, but to awaken quickly on Earth and return to the higher plane of Paradise. That is what they really have in mind, when Matthew 7:7–8 says “ Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:” For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If we are asking for material comforts we are binding ourselves on earth with no desire to return when they are opening the door. Those who fail to return will have no choice but to reincarnate, continuing until they amass a huge amount of karma and be either saved / destroyed.
