Reincarnation, Past Lives and Karma Defined
People are very confused about karma. They think as we sow, so shall we reap. That is true. If you do some
bad deeds, you will get bad karma. But if you do good deeds, you collect good karma. Bad karma makes you suffer, makes you miserable, makes you always in pain, suffering. But good karma makes you happy, makes you rich, makes you wealthy. Makes your life easy. So why not to collect good karma? How to collect good karma? Because it depends on your intention. If your intention is pure, good, you’re collecting good karma. Even though you didn’t do good karma yet, but your intention is very pure. Like a beggar which doesn’t have money, doesn’t have
any belongings. He’s on the street. He’s on the road. But he can still
collect good karma if his intention is pure. Suppose there’s an accident on the road and nobody’s around. And his intention is to help the person who’s in the accident. And he put all of his efforts. He doesn’t
have a cellphone, but he tries to reach 911. Or he tried to reach people how to save this life. And he poured his whole being there.
He collects a lot of good karma. Even he didn’t do anything. Even though he didn’t have money. He didn’t provide any facilities to this person who’s in accident. But because of that, he’s collecting a lot of good karma. His soul is improving constantly. It depends how deep he went intentionally. If he went 100% deep, he might be a king in the next life. That’s how the karmic theory works. And karma works like there is
no God-like thing who watches us that ‘do this do that’. There’s no almighty God. If he is almighty
God, suppose, so why we suffer then? Almighty. We consider him almighty God is our father. Like you are a simple father, your son gets in trouble
and gets a little wounded – little blood, only blood. A father or mother, simply ordinary father or mother, cannot see
the child suffering. They rush to the hospital. They will sell their own house even, but they
will try to give his son relief. And they’re not almighty father and mother, but what about
the almighty Father, what we consider God? He sees us suffering. It means we are wrong somewhere. Maybe God is there, but he’s not almighty. We have to correct ourselves. But why if we correct
ourselves, who will donate, who will support the churches? Who will support the temples? Who will support the synagogues? That’s why they don’t want to tell the truth. If
somebody wants to tell the truth, they will crucify him. But a person has to be crazy to tell the truth, and if they
don’t tell the truth, they will suffer – according to the Bible. The person who is a liar will going to burn into the Hell. Now you understand who’s going to burn you into
the Hell. I don’t have to tell. You have to understand. We need to tell the truth
that God is there, but maybe God is not almighty. Maybe God works like a father, but he
doesn’t have that power what we think. Yes, we can be benefitted from that power. That is sure. Like God is like a son, suppose. Son will not tell you that,
“Hey, your clothes are in the closet. They’re smelly, they have bacteria.” “They have some kinds of things there growing. Mildew growing.
Bring all your clothes and put in the Sun.” Son is not going to tell you. God
is not going to tell you anything. Like son. But if we are wise enough, we take our clothes
to the Sun outside and our clothes will be clean, pure. Again. So we can be benefitted from
the God if we are wise enough. If we are not wise enough, we’re just praying. Praying doesn’t help. I was telling in my lecture it is true
that if you are in trouble, just pray. They God will take care of everything, because
if you pray, God will take care. So the one little boy, he thought, “If we pray,
it might work.” So he was biking. His tire got blown out. Then he thought, “Oh, he was telling
in his lecture pray – then my cycle will be okay.” He started praying. Now you think. The puncture which he got
in the tire, it will work with the praying? No. You have to go to the puncture shop and
you do it. That is wiseness. Prayer works, but prayer works different way.
It doesn’t work the way you think. So that’s why we need to correct ourselves.
And we need to understand right things. And we never will suffer, we never will blame God even. Because now
we blame God, “Why am I poor, why is this guy rich?” We blame it because we don’t understand. And God
doesn’t make you rich or poor. Your own karma. And your karma – always you’re collecting
karma, because there is a ‘chip’ inside of you. It’s like a computer chip. It’s invisible. It can hold trillions of information, whatever
you’re doing from moment to moment – that camera is capturing all your pictures. And it will show you the future. So be aware. In
moment to moment, if you are aware, you never get bad karma. You will always get good karma. So think
in each and every single moment good. Always think good and think your intention has to be pure. And think your deeds have to be good. Don’t intentionally try to hurt, otherwise you are going to collect
bad karma. And bad karma will bring you misery. So it is a big concept. I
will explain to you little by little.
