Is there a reason to our suffering?
Are we the only ones singled out to suffer, or is the whole world suffering?
Why does sorrow happen to us, and how can we escape it?
Many of us may not know that suffering and sorrow are given to every soul on earth, not just a few unfortunate ones. The rich, affluent, and the brilliant suffer equally as the poor and lowly.
There is a valid reason behind our suffering on earth, and all of us are in the same boat. Sorrow is such a fella that he does not care who is rich, healthy or poor and ill. He is blind and offers himself to everyone. But why is this so?
It is because of this other fella called “Karma”.
Many may know of Karma as “our misdeeds or sins in our past lives” or“do bad – get bad”, and this is all we know about it. My studies have revealed some shocking revelations that many may not know. Yes, Karma is a word to indicate our misdeeds in our past lives and so we shall be punished. This is why life on earth is full of suffering and sorrow. But this is the part that many may not know about our friend Karma, – as Karma is what has brought us back to earth (reborn) only to “serve our sentence” for the misdeeds of our past and the reason why we have to suffer, Karma is also the answer out of this suffering.
To make this easily understandable is to simply explain the meaning of the word‘Karma’.
Karma means ‘work’ or ‘deeds’ in Sanskrit. It is not specific to misdeeds or good deeds, it is simply deeds – Karma. Now how can we escape this suffering on earth that is caused by our past misdeeds (Karma)? The answer is to do theopposite of ‘misdeeds’ – do ‘good deeds’. Literally the direct opposite of misdeeds, and this reverses the process from sorrow to joy. Simple huh?
So, we have accrued Karma credits from our previous millions of births through our misdeeds, now we simply have to debit. It is like an ordinary loan that we take. Say if we have taken credit worth $1000, then we have to debit $1000 (fortunately Karma does not charge interest otherwise we will never escape this hell hehe…). But the problem is, we do not know exactly how muchKarma credit we have accrued, and also we are not aware of this Principle of reversing Karma to escape suffering on earth, and therefore continue to accrued even more credits, only to lead back to earth in one form or another to repay our dues (and here we thought banks were merciless). And, we will never, ever, ever be truly happy until this debt is fully repaid, and it can only be repaid when we are born in a human form, because only as a human beingwill we be able to read something like this that can help us escape sorrow in this life, and beyond. This is why the human birth is known as rare and precious and it should be used exclusively to escape the cycle of our births and deaths in this world known as “Earth – The World of Suffering”, – the counter where Karma debts are meant to be repaid, – and this liberates a soul and gives him eternal joy.
You are Joy
