Your Fate and the Laws of Karma and Rhythm


Law of Cause and Effect (Karma) and Law of Rhythm

Thought → Emotion → Temptation → Behavior →  

Karmic Effect becomes a cause for another cycle → Thought → …

As we educate ourselves to understand the Laws of the Universe we can make conscious choices with our best interest in mind. It’s simple really – we empower ourselves through responsible behaviors or actions.

The choices that determine our fate start in our thinking, which triggers a corresponding emotion. And, since our emotions are empowered by the soul they make a great impact on our behaviors. Our behaviors are the effects of our choices of thinking and emotions, while our behaviors cause further effects physically since we are earthly beings. The frequency of energy in this entire process is what comes back to impact us as karma.

If we are angry (low-frequency energy) that energy will return to cause us harm and others.  If we make empowering choices that are balanced with higher frequency energy – containing enthusiasm, wisdom, sincerity and most of all Universal Love – then that energy will return to benefit us and others. 

And, we are habitual creators, repeating our thinking processes and behaviors. We condition ourselves as individuals and as groups, such as in families, friends, communities, nations, politics and religions. We repeat history so to speak and thus cyclic patterns emerge as experienced in the Law of Rhythm.

Yet, the Laws of Cause and Effect and Rhythm are to our benefit and we can make progress through them though it may not appear that way at the time. Experience teaches us, and we can understand, then live in harmony with these laws. 

The key is to BE CONSCIOUS with LOVE motivating us, if we aim for no harm to ourselves or others. This is turn harmonizes us all. We flow in harmony with both the Laws of Cause and Effect and Rhythm. (With the help of the Great Law more entries in the future will concern these laws.)

Through conscious awareness we can evolve ourselves to remember the LOVE we are. 

We are the masters of our own fate.

“We must change our attitude of mind if we want to produce something better – the change must come from within us. Then the Law of Retribution will become the Law of Reward.”

Dew on Grass

Self-lies overtaking,

Sabotage in the making.

Externalizes pain with excuses

Looking for distractions

To avoid fear,

To avoid abuse sensation.

Harsh control of childhood-will,

Result – procrastination.

Cognitive behavior, little self-regulation 

Squandering Life participation.

Let your tears Love,

Inspire emotional transformation.

Dark, Dark Hole


Dark, dark hole

It’s a dark, dark hole;
The center of our life
At one time
Long dead and decayed,
Remnant of what was,
Yet, decay can be a hotbed for growth.
Harmful weeds,
Poison vines that climb
And come back out
Into consciousness.
No power of discrimination,
And we fall back into conditioned illusion.

A World of Helping Hands


Freedom from Subconscious Enslavement

What’s Really Happening with Pain and Suffering, Part 6

humanity and suffering

Suffering Comes in many Forms

All of us suffer, but most of us do not even know that we suffer on a daily basis! Of course, we are aware of experiencing pain and suffering from illnesses and injuries. And, we are usually aware of  emotional suffering that flattens us with symptoms of loneliness or depression. 

However, we tend to be unconscious of experiencing  some of the more common mental and emotional sufferings like boredom, mental exhaustion, impatience, pride, greed and jealousy. They can grow  unnoticed and unchecked in the subconscious, then resurface, morphed into harsher forms of suffering. Even causing physical illness!  

Emotions like anger, hatred, worry, jealousy and greed can become habitual without us knowing it and dominate our personality, enslaving us! We can feel like a victim of injustice and tend to blame others or the situation, striking out in frustration, anger or  even violence. Riots start this way. 

The subconscious is a horrible burden that causes us to suffer.

What Can We Do?

Our destiny as humans is to align our personality with our Individuality and Soul. To release negative emotions and traits that enslave us and cause us to suffer. To be strong, free and happy.

To heal ourselves there must be Love. Yet, it starts by being conscious or mindful of love in the present moment. 

It stands to reason that when we consciously manifest love from our heart we are exercising True Power and fulfilling our destiny as a Soul. 

We build to Harmony and alleviate suffering moment by moment, day by day. From a conscious state we can release the emotional pain of traumatic experiences, fear, subconscious temptations and enslaving habits as discussed in this series by several methods. And, they work!

Our heart is the Seat of Love and Center of Attraction. The more we express love the more we are conscious of receiving it. The more we feel connected to everyone else in an aura of goodwill, caring and compassion. The more we feel connected to the Great Principle. 

We will as humans continue to be faced with challenges, yet with awareness of Love within us we can face those challenges bravely and without suffering from desires. 

And this is the amazing part about manifesting love from our heart, it not only helps alleviate our own suffering, but also helps all humanity. They pass it on and so it circles!

In that intent, a new exercise as been added in which we activate our spiritual heart to help ourselves and the world:

Radiant Heart Exercise

With the help of the Great Law a corresponding practice will also be added in the near future: Conscious Heart Practice! 

We become a world of helping hands and hearts!

Until next time consider this quote to reflect upon:

“We are to work, not only for our own improvement, but for the whole of Humanity. If we help one, it benefits all.”

Eugene Fersen, Pearls of Wisdom, Volume 1, page 364.



It’s Not Always Pretty!


A spiritual journey is not for the faint of heart because it can mean a great deal of work to know both the personal, human traits and the individual, spiritual aspects of ourselves. Knowledge of the human, personal part is not always pretty, yet it is essential in order to release any part of it that may be holding us back from the success and happiness that is our natural right as souls.

Our life is our spiritual journey.  And, by looking at our life experiences, the choices we’ve made and our character we can learn about ourselves.

But, some of it – yeah, a lot of it is not pretty! Yet, it is essential to look at that too in order to grow.

“Know yourself and you will know All,” means we have to look at and know what we perceive as ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’ about ourselves.

We often overlook the ‘good’ about ourselves, identifying instead with ‘the bad and the ugly’ more often than not. We suffer from the ugly emotions of traumas and painful situations, identifying ourselves as a victim rather than as an authentic person that’s had terrible experiences. We experience fear unconsciously.

Sometimes we even choose to identify ourselves as ‘bad,’ and act it out. And that is our right as a soul. Yet, that doesn’t mean that abuse should be tolerated – even from ourselves. It should not. 

All experiences, even ‘bad and ugly’ experiences have value. Those negative energy ones point out what we are to overcome and can motivate us to reach for our inner strength, wisdom, truth and love in order to heal ourselves. That we might come to know ourselves as a compassionate power and soul.

Reflection on the River of Life


Appreciation for Mother Nature can open our awareness to Universal Love. 

Reflections on Thai River


The calmer and more serene we are mentally and emotionally the better we are able to realize our true spiritual character and reflect it in our earthly life.


Everything in our life presents us with opportunities. Even our reflection on water can open us to spiritual realizations.

 When we are conscious and appreciate this very moment of our life, we are aware of our Inner Being:  the energy of our self, our thinking, our feelings of sincerity, peace and harmony –  we realize we are part of the river of All Energy, Powers and Love; our Unity with all Beings and the Infinite Source.

We are centered within our self, caring, compassionate and aware of being part of All.

Each of us are very capable of consciously experiencing our unity with the Source of our earthly reflection.

Finding Beauty – Cherry Blossoms


“We should try to develop the love of Beauty, which is at the
foundation of our being.”
Eugene Fersen

Weeping Cherry Blossom

 Cherry Blossoms

 One of the most spectacular signs of life budding from a long winter’s slumber is that of the plants and trees blooming with warm spring colors against clear, blue skies.

Pale pink is the color of tender and unconditional Love.
It is spring’s sweet blossom of compassion and gentle nurturing.

Cherry blossom cloud

In the Japanese tradition and art the cherry tree is symbolic of extreme beauty then quick death; mortality. It’s like clouds that burst forth in their bountiful glory then quickly change, even disappearing to the human eye though they have merely changed form.

Life it is always changing and in constant movement. Upon the earthly death of an individual, the soul  merely changes its body, its form.

Weeping Cherry Trunk

Even the trunk of the ornamental cherry tree is beautiful!

What They’re Not Telling, Part 5

Spirit of the Soul

We tend to overlook our simplest soul attributes and put them in the back seat of our activities. Yet, we need only express them in our life to help us live a more successful, happier life now. And as we live them consistently, the more refined we become, revealing the source of those qualities – the Spirit of our Soul. 

newborn 1, patrisyu

A newborn’s tender expressions of their soul remind us of our own soul qualities which are hidden behind the masks we have created for ourselves and we’ve come to believe. We were once newborns too, and can express those FourSquare qualities again:

  • Newborns assert living in the moment. Life is precious and this moment is a once in a lifetime opportunity to live it fully without fear of the unknown future or pain of the past.  
  • Their very presence is the felicity of creative change. Change is the very nature of the universe, and it is advantageous for us to maintain an attitude that is mentally open and adaptable rather than fight against change, looking on it as an opportunity for growth.
  • Newborns demonstrate that we do not know everything there is to know and that is a blessing because we have the joy of learning and making new discoveries before us. As we commit to our spiritual practice in earnest, we become more conscious of inspiration and guidance of our Super-consciousness and the traits and habits of the subconsciousness, which we can use wisely to help transform ourselves. With an Enlightened Mind we discriminate intelligently with the consideration of Love leading us in our choices of behaviors.
  • Newborns testify to sincerity, honesty and the power of faith and trust in the Eternal. Doubt fades away the more we are sincere and honest we are in our thoughts, feelings and behaviors, freeing us from the roles we play and aligning with the Universal Laws. Habitually repeating anger, resentment, guilt, worry and other subconscious traits can lead to becoming self-righteous, limiting our view of the world and ourselves.
  • It is easy to love our own newborns since they are so tender, gentle and trusting. Newbies radiate an aura of generous love and even if they are not our children they warm our hearts. Their heart of love attracts love from within us and gives us the great opportunity to know the best part of ourselves, our unconditional Love and the endless abundance of love. Compassionate Love promotes understanding and cooperation.
  • When we look into the eyes of a newborn we can see that Divinity is close at hand, because looking into the eyes of another human is looking at Divinity. And, when we are truly conscious of looking at Divinity, another Soul, we can see ourselves in them, because we are of the same Divine Source.

Easy to Love
As we consciously practice releasing false beliefs about ourselves, we also can wholeheartedly embrace Love and all our soul qualities of Strength, Wisdom, Truth. The more we do, the closer we come to the full realization of the Spirit of our Soul, the Divine in ourselves.

We can see the Divine in newborns. Now is the time to see It in others and most of all experience It in our self. Our Soul qualities to wholeheartedly manifest are:

Until next time consider this quote to reflect upon:

“The emotion of Love is for us the key which open the gates of Heaven. In reality we do not love human beings; we think we do. We love Divinity through human beings. We have that longing and yearning within us to go back to the Father, to the Absolute, and whenever we find a channel through which we can achieve that return to Him, a channel opened by Love, we are only too glad to use it, because it is the inmost desire of our heart, it is the love of our Soul.”
