Law of Karmic Attraction:
At the core of the "Philosophy of Karma" is
this original Law of Attraction: "What you have done unto others in
past lives or in this one (cause), weaves the karmic agreement of your
present and future (effect). Consciously acting from loving kindness
to yourself and others instantly reweaves the present and future karmic
agreements into greater pathways of empowerment."
LOA vs Karma:
So can you "be or do or have" anything you want?
Sure, as long as it is consistent with your karma. That is why some
people succeed so spectacularly ("good karma") or fail so miserably
("bad karma") at manifesting their life. If their karmic lessons are
experiencing disease, enduring poverty, and suffering with failed
relationships, then it will take WORK to heal their past karma so that
they can create their desired future of health, wealth, and happiness.
Operation of Karma:
Here is how karma works through the Law of
Attraction. Whatever thoughts and emotions you focus on the most -
with the most intensity most of the time - intentionally or unintentionally -
becomes your belief-karma. The more you invest in your dominant thoughts
and passionate feelings with your focus, the stronger they become. Your
beliefs generate your thoughts, form your attitudes, guide your actions,
generate your emotions, and create your results.
Nothing But Free Will:
At the core of the Law of Attraction is the
belief that everything is free will and that free will is unlimited
if only you knew how to apply it properly. The problem is that karma
like a fenced corral inside the open field of free will. Some people
have a big old fence of karma that makes the field of free will seem
unlimited. For these people, creating what they want IS just a matter
of focusing their thoughts and emotions on their goals. Yet for most
people the fence of karma often constrains their free will as to what
they can and cannot create.
Constraints of Karma:
Physically, what you lack limits how you can
exercise your free will: if you are lacking in sight, hearing, energy,
vitality, well functioning organs, and etc, that will limit how you
can exercise your free will. Mentally, what you lack limits how you
can exercise your free will: if you are lacking in education, training,
skills, experience, discipline, and etc, that will limit how you can
exercise your free will. Emotionally, what you lack limits how you can
exercise your free will: if you are lacking in your ability to control
negative feelings (like anger, hurt, fear, frustration, shame, guilt,
etc) that will limit how you can exercise your free will.
Exercise of Free Will:
The one thing the LOA gurus are right about
is that you create your results by the actions you take or fail to take.
For example, two people are diagnosed with cancer. One person ignores
the diagnosis. The other person undergoes intensive traditional and
alternative treatments, visualizes their body as being healthy, speaks
positive affirmations around the clock, and does everything possible
to get better. No one is surprised when the person, who ignored their
disease, dies while the person, who fought their disease, survives by
beating the cancer. Clearly, their different exercise of free will
created their differing results.
Role of Karma vs Free Will:
Karma works to develop your ability to handle
free will responsibly. Karma operates impersonally, giving you the
opportunity at every moment to become open to greater levels of love.
The goal is to give you experiences so you evolve into greater levels
of awareness and responsibility.
When "Feel Good LOA" Fails:
What you are "attracting what is unpleasing to
you", the LOA gurus will claim you are doing something wrong. From
their point of view, since their "Feel Good Law of Attraction" is
infallible, the only way it can fail is if YOU apply it incorrectly.
This "blame the victim" approach both ignores the operation of karma
and creates bad karma for those who spread such blame:
Although it is quite true that if you focus on
the wrong things (especially if you focus on what you do not want), you
will get the wrong results. Yet, the LOA gurus will just say "change
your focus" without looking any further into why some can focus with
ease (a past life talent) and others cannot (a karmic block). Worse,
they ignore those who focus on the right thing and get the wrong result
(as in really "bad" past life karma limiting their options).
Although it is quite true that if you have the
wrong attitude (especially if you are certain nothing will ever work out
for you), you will get the wrong results. Yet, the LOA gurus will just
say "change your attitude" without looking any further into why some are
so entrenched in their attitudes (the weight of past life experience).
Telling someone to "just adjust your attitude" will never blast away
their unconscious truths (gained from bitter and painful past life
Although it is quite true that if you expect
everything to always happen instantly (especially if you believe things
will just come to you somehow), you will get the wrong results. Yet,
the LOA gurus will just say "be patient" because good fortune is just
around the corner. To those who say that they have taken "massive,
inspired actions" with little or no result more patience is advised
(when it is likely that really "bad" past life karma is limiting their
Although it is quite true that if you do not
invest energy into achieving your goals, they cannot materialize and
you will get the wrong results. Yet, the LOA gurus will just say
"just allow it" and "let it flow" to you because that is the way the
universe works. They will say "you can only get what you agree to
deserve!" Here they are right here because "you can only get what
you agree to deserve" (which is a definition of karma!) when you
believe it you will see it.
Even when history has already proven them
wrong, the LOA gurus will say they are right. Here are a few key
LOA gurus claim that because children are so
completely in tune with their desires that they are "genius creators"
who should be given free reign. Whether it was in the early 1800s
with the Transcendentalists or in the late 1900s with the Alternative
Schools, those schools where the child "inmates ran the asylum" failed.
If children were genius creators, they would not have needed to
reincarnate into the karmic schoolhouse of Earth to learn lessons
Emotional Guidance System:
LOA gurus claim that, if only we will follow
our "emotional guidance" system, then our lives will be perfectly
guided. When we are HAPPY, this is our guidance confirming that we
are going in the RIGHT direction. While when we are UNHAPPY, this
is our guidance confirming that we are going in the WRONG direction.
Yet what happens when our emotional guidance system is happy when we
are doing the wrong thing, like serial killing. Serial killers report
being happy when they are murdering. Yet, in their case, the so called
"perfect" emotional guidance system definitely is flawed by the wrong
Only by Thought:
LOA gurus claim that, the "only things that
can come into our life is what we have invited by thought"… in only
this lifetime. Yet if parents give birth to children with rare
diseases (see the
that they never ever heard of, how could they have "invited that" in?
Worse, what loving parent would even do so? At best, this is insulting.
At worst, this is devastating if the parents believe the LOA gurus and
start blaming themselves unnecessarily!
Karma Flowing into Your Reality:
"The essence of all that your karma means to
teach you is constantly flowing into your reality." If you have had
surgery, injury, illness, accident, lawsuits, or problems in your
marriage, with your children, other family, friends, and so on, then
the karma is flowing thick and fast in your life... and no amount of
"Feel Good Philosophy" can make these karmic lessons feel good.
