A Teaching on karma
I AM Kuthumi, having come to you through this Messenger again.
I have come to give you a small Teaching and to consolidate the knowledge that has already been given in the previous Dictations. The Hosts of Light are invisibly present among you. They try to make use of every chance to be present in your world — as soon as a gap in the pure vibrations appears and allows us to do this.
Our worlds enrich each other reciprocally. Do not think of your world as about the devil incarnate.
Yes, the situation in your world is rather sad today. But this will not last forever. Both the purification of your world and the rise of the vibrations of the physical plane following after it are necessary conditions for the further evolutionary progress of humanity.
Your karma is very large and it consists of the karma both of each individual and the entire planet. This hardened karma — which is in fact condensed energy — creates your dense world.
When the karma is worked off through the rise of the human consciousness, the refusal of the wrong actions, and the maintaining of the right Divine accord of thoughts and feelings, the physical plane gradually becomes less and less dense until it disappears altogether. Nevertheless, still long before the physical plane of planet Earth disappears, life will move from this plane to the higher ones. These planes are brought pretty close to you at present, especially the astral and the mental planes. You can sit inertly at home or even at work, while at the same time your mental or emotional body can wander around the mental and the astral planes. These wanderings can even reach your external consciousness and either be realized by your outer mind or not.
You leave your body and have a journey to the astral plane every night. Your external consciousness does not always realize where you were travelling and whom you met at night. There are individuals capable of remembering their dreams and even of making conscious journeys in their dream in order to meet those people whom they want to meet.
Such an activity, as well as any other activity typical of your world, may be used both for good and for evil aims. Everything depends on the aim of the person making astral journeys and the on the motives he is guided by — whether he wishes to influence the individuals whom he meets for his mercenary aims or he does this for the benefit of the planet.
The journeys out of the body in your less dense bodies are quite natural. These journeys take place independently whether you realize it with your outer consciousness or not.
Nonetheless, I must warn you that if you use a conscious journey to the astral plane in order to influence some person or even to harm him, your actions entail the same karma as if you performed them in the physical plane with full consciousness in broad daylight.
If your external consciousness does not understand what you are doing in the astral plane, this will not free you from the karmic responsibility for your actions as well.
I will tell you more. A lot of individuals create much more karma in their dreams than during the vigilant state of their consciousness. In exactly the same way when you are at home and make an unconscious journey to the astral or mental plane while your thoughts and feelings are aimed against any person, you create karma.
If you play mental images of some vindictive or sexual scenes through your consciousness, you create the same karma as if you really performed all these actions in the physical plane.
That is why we are never tired of saying to you again and again that you must constantly control your thoughts and feelings. During your night sleep you are drawn to those layers of the astral plane, the vibrations of which in their quality correspond to the quality of your thoughts before the sleep. If before going to bed you watched a horror film or spent time in drunken company, you will be drawn to those layers of the astral plane where you will continue your evening entertainment. In this case you create the same karma as if you were doing all this in the physical plane.
That is why your mood during the day and especially before going to bed is very important.
The best thing is to pray or, if you are not used to praying before sleep, at least to listen to soft music or to have a stroll in nature. It would also be useful to read a good kind fairy tale to your children before sleep.
And, of course, do not forget before going to bed to ask the angels to accompany you to the etheric octaves of Light where the sacred retreats of the Brotherhood are located.
You can even specify precisely whomever of the Masters you would like to meet during your night sleep and frame a question, the answer to which you would like to get.
If you ask me a concrete question before sleep, the first thing you should do in the morning is to concentrate and to call to mind the answer given by me during your sleep.
As a rule, I give answers to everyone who reaches me in my retreat and asks me questions during his night sleep. It depends only on you to recall this answer and to write it down immediately after awakening.
You see how differently you may spend time during your night sleep. And it is up to you to make a choice as to how to use your night sleep. You literally program yourselves before sleep for the actions that you perform during your night sleep.
Therefore, I repeat again and again: You must control your thoughts and feelings constantly, every minute. Always remember that if the situations that you bottle up in your mind are subject to the karmic punishment, you create karma by just thinking about them.
In this case the technique of the karma creation is the following: The Divine energy entering your four lower bodies from the Divine world along the crystal string is tinted by your thoughts and feelings. If your thoughts are imperfect then you qualify the Divine energy falsely.
It is very important to control the state of your consciousness at every moment. Your consciousness is so mobile that we never cease to marvel at your ability to create so much karma even during your prayers.
That is why you are told about the meditation practice as one of the possible ways of soothing your mind.
Only in the case when you manage to calm all your fussy thoughts and feelings and reach a total peace of your mind can you ascend to the higher etheric octaves of Light and stay there for a long time. You become able to meet with the Masters, to talk to them, and to stroll with them around the etheric octaves of Light.
For that reason, to be able to judge indirectly the level of your spiritual merits, wind up the alarm clock so that it can give you a signal every hour. When you hear a signal, try to recall what you were thinking about at that moment.
If at that time you were thinking about some elevated and spiritual things, you can mark it as figure 1 on a slip of paper or in your memory. If your thoughts were imperfect, mark it as 0.
It is enough to catch your thoughts ten times a day according to this technique. Sum up all figures 1, append 0 to them and you will see the approximate percentage of the karma worked off by you.
For example, if six out of ten your thoughts could be characterized as elevated, the percentage of the worked off karma is approximately 60 percent.
It is not strange if one day you fix 10 percent of the worked off karma and the next day the result is 70 percent. In reality, your karma changes during the day. The karma is energy. If you spend most of the day in nature and do not communicate with anybody, the percentage of the worked-off karma will be the most approximate to your natural index, achieved by you at a given stage of your development. If you come into contact with thousands of people during the day, you exchange energy with them every time you touch their auras or during conversations and teamwork. Consequently, you exchange karma every time you come into contact with people during the day.
That is why all the venerable old men, prophets, and yogis preferred a secluded way of life and did not associate with people.
Thus, it is impossible for you not to bear the karma of your family, your town and your planet while you live on Earth.
The humans of Earth are very interrelated by their karma. In order to become independent from the karma of the people around you, it is necessary for you to reach a high level of spiritual achievements.
Do not forget that the Law of Likeness acts in your world. You are drawn exactly to those people and situations to which you are to be drawn in order to work off your karma.
When a Buddha walks on the earth, no karmic situation can affect him. He steps on earth without being noticed by anybody, and no negative energies can cling to him. However, in order for a Buddha to come to your world, he must first take imperfection or karma upon himself. It is like a diver who takes a stone in his hands before making a dive.
For that reason, you are highly recommended not to judge anyone. You never can say whether it is a Buddha or the lowest sinner standing in front of you because both of them can be burdened with similar karma at times. But if one of them takes upon himself the karma of humanity intentionally, feeling compassion for people and wishing to help them, the other burdens himself with this karma only owing to his ignorance.
Today I have touched upon some of the topics that were already known to you. We have viewed many questions together from a new angle. The questions of karma are very sophisticated. I raise my hat to the members of the Karmic Board, as I realize how considerable the difficulties are that they encounter in their work.
I AM Kuthumi.
