The 5 Laws of Karma (And How They Affect Our Life)

the laws of karma

The Laws of Karma can be viewed as the Buddhist and Hindu version of the Golden Rule, which is basically that you should do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The universal laws of Karma have always held a special and important place, when it comes to developing self-awareness, wisdom, and enlightenment.

This Golden Rule is stated by practically every religion in the world, as it teaches us that we are responsible for our actions.

Buddhism karma goes a bit further, incorporating intention and thought, as well as spoken word and action. Everything we feel, say, do, and every choice we make ripples through time, and these choices are our karma, whether they be good or bad. So what are the Laws of Karma?

Check out these 5 universal Laws of Karma.

The 5 Laws of Karma (And How They Affect Our Life)

1. Law of Neutrality

In the same way that gravity acts as a neutral and constant force, the Laws of Karma apply to all beings equally, without exception.  

It exists without favorite ones, without cursed ones; there are only the divine beings manifested by the Creator, and all of these beings are loved and cared for equally, deeply, and completely.

2. Law of Lessons

When we reincarnate we do so to learn what is and is not like love. When moving through worlds of duality, we learn from experiencing the extreme opposites: good-bad, problem-solution, etc. until we are able to evolve into divine love, joy, and awareness. One walks the divine circle until their lessons are learned.

3. Law of Balance

The objective of learning lessons is to achieve a sense of balance. Imbalances are what drive your personal cycle of reincarnation.

For example, whatever you bring hate to, is what you reincarnate to so that you might have the opportunity to achieve balance. Because you can only truly understand a thing when you become that thing; ceasing judgment and harboring unrealistic expectations.

4. Law of Expansion

Because everything in the universe is energy, the universe is constantly expanding from lower to higher vibrational levels. And due to this constant expansion, change and growth are all but certain.  

The universe grows by weaving its way through the chaos, reorganization, and order in one long endless cycle of change and growth, executed in hopes of continuous improvement.

5. Law of Love

Karma comes full circle with love. The entire purpose of Karma is to propel your soul on a personal journey of reincarnation through the universe, eventually bringing all of us into a state of divine love, joy, and awareness. Karma ceases when you have perfected your ability to love unconditionally.

Higher Perspectives

Higher Perspective seeks to bring together like-minded individuals focused on personal growth and expanding their consciousness. The internet has given us the wonderful gift of instant communication. Through the sharing of pictures, art, music, ideas, stories, history, and other information, we can help the population gain a higher perspective on life and improve our global situation. We seek also to discuss the things actually happening in the world around us; from political corruption to home-grown healthcare tips. Everywhere you look, there are big stories not being reported by the mainstream media. We hope to break through that barrier and cover issues important to all of us. We can be better to our planet, better to our brothers and sisters and better to ourselves.View Author posts
