Karma

From Jonah’s perspective, karma is simply an unresolved issue.  There is a “charge” that remains within you that needs to be acknowledged, addressed and integrated.

There is no “getting even”.

There is no “payback time”.

There is no “balancing the scales” or any other such thing you may have heard during the course of your life. 

There is no “good” karma or “bad” karma.

This is Jonah’s perspective on karma:

If you hurt other people you will attract a “negative” experience or set of circumstances to yourself.  You cannot walk around through life intentionally harming others and not expect that someday, somewhere, someone is going to want to wish you harm and even create an event that will cause you to be as unhappy as you have made others feel over and over again.  That’s not karma- that’s inevitable!  You will receive what you put out in equal measure … eventually.

Likewise, if you do things to make people around you happy and joyful – because it is your nature – you will attract “positive” experiences or circumstances to yourself.  People want to do nice things for nice people.  Even if all they do is think of you and smile, that positive energy in itself is something you have earned by simply being yourself.  You will receive what you put out in equal measure … immediately.

If you are doing nice things for people but it is only because you fear that to not do so will attract “bad karma” you will eventually resent others and create a “negative” experience for yourself – no matter how “nice” you are.  That is not a balanced approach to living and so you will never feel balanced or in harmony within yourself nor with others no matter how hard you try to convince yourself otherwise.

Jonah shared a very simple formula to illustrate this: 

ACTION + INTENTION = RESULT

They also teach that –

“The most profound truths are in the simplest things.”

Karma then, is nothing more than an unresolved matter that requires resolution in order to neutralize the charge you feel within. 

You must never “delete” “remove” “excise” “erase” any experiences from your life, no matter how you perceive them – whether “good” or “bad”.  If you were intended to experience something in order to learn and grow from it, and you eliminate it,  you will have to experience that lesson all over again in order to bring you back to balance. 

I was always confused when I would hear of energy practitioners removing this, that and the other thing from a person’s field – with or without their client’s permission. It did not seem appropriate to me – as if doing so diminished the person on many levels. Would it not be more beneficial instead to empower that person by arming them with understanding, a skill, a tool? Was this yet another form of energetic-enabling?

Nature abhors a vacuum. Balance is the ultimate goal, is it not?

You must INTEGRATE experiences, not delete them.
