“Karma is intricate, too vast. You would (with your limited human senses) consider it too unfair. But you have tools to really, truly love. Loving the children is very important. But love everyone as you would love your children…We’re all one huge family, a great continuum. Don’t underestimate the power of the love created in your homes and families. This love has an immense potency, the power to influence other’s lives in a positive way.”-Kuan Yin

Periodically elaborating on its relevance throughout the text, Kuan Yin’s definition of karma departs from traditional cause and effect theory: the total moral sum of an individual’s life, determining the circumstances of one’s next life. Stating that we “can consciously choose and direct it”, Kuan Yin stresses that it is the accumulated expansive and/or limiting beliefs from the simultaneous, past, present and future creating “made-up stories” about oneself and, thus, reality.

When immersed in journaling or visualization, an individual may want to be mindful of possible karmic layers, embedded with what Kuan Yin has called karmic “invested elements” (pre-existing helpful or hindering beliefs and emotions). Granted, it can be challenging to break free from unwanted deeply-ingrained patterns and identities—what Kuan Yin describes as “karmic loops”.

Obviously, Kuan Yin’s “Love and Forgiveness Principle” is an example of what the spirit deity describes as helpful “invested elements” while the “Fear Triad”: the “better than”, “not enough” and “survival of the fittest” beliefs, represent potentially-limiting karmic invested elements.

For example, who wouldn’t want to wish for more money? Such a wish, however, if not consciously applied, can bring serious problems. An “invested element” might be that you previously made poor financial choices based on the above-mentioned limiting beliefs. Be careful that you’ve resolved any of these potentially self-sabotaging tendencies. Otherwise, you may simply be magnifying the original problem beyond your control.

We’ve all heard the saying: “Be careful what you wish for”. It means, in Kuan Yin terms, that when you begin to consciously-practice Her Mindfulness and Law of Attraction techniques be consistent as is possible with your healed self. This is why Kuan Yin wants individuals to be grounded in their own personal truth:

“The reality I’m showing you represents pure wealth. No greed is involved. Beings in this dimension desire this pure wealth because it feels good; it expands their consciousness. This is a very different approach from desiring to keep all the resources for oneself--to say that others can’t have it and to also believe there is not enough.”-Kuan Yin

The important thing to remember is that you have the power to initiate your own change. You do this quite naturally every day through your expectations.

Believing educational institutions are a necessary tool for one’s advancement, for example, is a necessary mindset and expectation guiding one’s learning processes. When you go to school, you expect to attend certain required classes. You may even have elective classes, more finely-tuned to your interests and abilities. General education required classes, then, represent a broader frame of focus (focused intent), while elective education classes represent a specific frame of focus based on your education goals and what you desire in life.

Our earthly incarnation is an opportunity to hone one’s imagination and creativity. An integral component of Kuan Yin’s Law of Attraction, then, is accepting the conditions of earth as a supreme learning opportunity. When perceived in this manner, the earth experience should afford one the skill to finally climb out of any personally-created “well”: “After many attempts of trying to climb out, they develop strength, ingenuity. That is what many are doing on this earth.”-Kuan Yin

Thankfully, the amazing diversity of the earth offers a sanctuary for healing any unwanted tendencies. It is also a point in time and space where those having acquired positive traits and abilities can further hone their skills. Their extraordinary talents typically displayed early on, savants and child prodigies are believed, by some, to be souls carrying lessons and personally-developed traits across the lifetimes.

On the other hand “artificial burdens” (getting swept into one’s previous or others’ limiting agendas), as Kuan Yin contends, can also be taken on when incarnating into a physical body. The very nature of physical reality requires that the body and all of its surroundings have form and mass. Indeed, this form and mass can contain within it your own “deeply-ingrained karmic loops”: expansive and/or hindering belief patterns acquired from other existences.

The word “karma” is often associated with punishment for previously committed actions. Since Kuan Yin insists that we are living in a simultaneous universe—that “there is no such thing as time”, however, traditional definitions of karma do not apply. Saying, “You slip into the universe, while living in this dream, this present—your escape hatch is right here,” Kuan Yin emphasizes that reality is ultimately not sequential. We therefore have an opportunity to render any unhelpful, heavy experiences, as lighter and more expansive:

“Kuan Yin is showing me a person running with sandbags. She’s telling me that when the person finally lets go of the sandbags, he or she is faster, stronger. Oh. I get it! That’s what the earth existence is like. In many ways living on earth is an artificial burden. Once one is free of his or her body, they are lighter and also stronger, more powerful. That’s why cars and planes were invented. They’re physical simulations for “thinking yourself there”. The humbling experience of the earth experience develops compassion and humility.”-Lena Lees

Roadblocks along the way can be viewed as divine opportunities, encouraging the individual to implement creative solutions. One’s pre-birth “agreement” to a unique personal profile indicates willingness to participate in the divine tension existing here on earth. Incarnating on the earth, however, carries a risk that an individual will get discouraged or worse.

What is the source of this divine tension? According to Kuan Yin, it originates when the ego self realizes it is separate from what Kuan Yin terms the “Always/Authentic Self” (the “God Force”). As complex and challenging as this process might appear, the experience of the ego’s perceived exclusion from Oneness is necessary for individuation of the God Force who when incarnating into a physical body “becomes a person who plays out adventures from his or her beliefs”.

Continuing, Kuan Yin states: “Ego’s very nature: its capability for a relatively expansive, detailed, and yet individualistic perspective is crucial to the entire process. Ego extracts from its daily experience unique individualized perspectives integral to humanity’s process of spiritualizing matter…the God Force experiences itself more clearly when it can separate itself out; obtaining a different point of view. Because of this separation, [becoming human--the personification of the “Always Self”], there is the possibility for pain.”

Divine tension can then arises from feelings of separation: when ego clearly understands and maintains, “I am”. Believing he or she is alone, only the image in the mirror, one may have forsaken the memory of the “Grand Plan”. Yearning for Oneness, this person has probably forgotten they are not only their reflection but also everything in the mirror and beyond. A perpetual irony seesawing between ecstasy and agony can therefore exist: that the uniqueness we hold so dear causes us to long for Oneness.

I have spoken of how ego’s extraordinary discriminating and distilling powers allow one to pursue a goal or series of goals. One could not even begin implementing a plan without ego’s sublime permission and ability to focus in spite of the divine tension: its ability to be in the MOMENT.

The anomaly of an earth existence, then, is that one has the opportunity to experience a wide spectrum of consciousness acrobatics while retaining the amazing focusing capabilities of ego-consciousness. Kuan Yin instructs us to always have reverence for the ego: “We want to taste all these experiences. And the ego makes it possible.”
