Karma & Guru

Dear Reader,
What is written below are thoughts of a logical, egoistic, selfish and stupid mind. Please excuse if there’s something wrong and unwanted.

Everything we get in our life is as per our past Karma. Whether we like
it or not, accept it or not this is the truth.

Only thing thats in our hands is our response. We can crib, cry, feel
lonely, pity, angry, bad or whatever … its upto us. It will not change fruits
of our karmas.

It may however worsen the effect.

There are threevways to come out of the effect of our karmas

1- Hukam Rajai chalna Nanak Likhya naal. By simply accepting the fruit
as sweet and enjoying. Once we accept this we will feel peace. If Karma
philosophy is true for me, then so it is ….for others. We will stop feeling
pity for ourselves or blaming others and criticizing others

2- By HIS Grace. Again that’s beyond our comprehension. That can happen
as and when He wishes. If He doesnot ever.. its upto Him

3- We follow the Guru and as a result become aware of the entire
Creation (and much more). In such a case, karmas simply lose their relevance.
Those who reached this stage accepted being cut into pieces or being bricked in
a wall without even uttering a word.

Sri Guru Granth sahib ji is the complete Guru. Once you completely and truthfully
surrender urself and agree to follow what Guru is telling you, things will
change and you will be guided. You will be simply amazed…..

Only thing is that the results will be directly proportional to your truthfulness in following the teachings.

    I see how you relate Karma in life, but do you think that actions have karmic values associated with them? I’m not sure if you would know. Thanks for the well-written article.

    You are right. I may not be knowing about karmic values associated with actions. Please explain and give ur views….

    Little bit more that i realise (and am not yet fully following in my life…just trying to) is :
    Once we know that its “Wweee” who have to pay for whatever karma we do, there is no other way, then we will become aware and stop doing bad karmas or actions. This awareness will always be there and our conscious or inner voice will be the judge for right and wrong.Its about being aware…. always. And this state can come thru Gurbani. In such a state u are aware of urself (good or bad doesnot matter), ur thoughts, ur emotions etc.
    Progressing further and as we continue practicing this, we will try not to do any bad deeds lest we may have to take birth again to pay for them.
    Not only that, we will do good deeds also without expectations, trying to do them without anyone else even knowing about them. For if (by our good deeds) someone else feels thankful to us and wants to return the favours, we may have to take birth again to make him square the deeds. This is how i percieve my Guru is telling me about the Karmic cycles.

    Isn’t this too selfish. But what to do… No one will like to go thru the pain of birth and death again and again. Sooner we get out of this, better it is.

    I have some questions on your post as I am finding myself engulfed in a situation that is very suffocating. People have hurt me a lot (after I got married – sounds familiar?) and they hurt me for no fault of mine. It is expected of me to forgive them without a gurantee that they will love me or respect me.
    Some days I decide to be normal and some days I spend my time in anger and pity and wanting to hurt the ones somehow because they have really hurt my soul.
    Is there any Shabad that has an answer to my situation? Guru ji’s photo gives me a lot of calm. I want to have a baby but I dont have the courage to bring a child in this relationship despite my husband’s assurances. Please guide me to a Shabad that will help… that has answers… I don’t remember hurting someone like that to be going through this and I don’t know when they will stop? Who will show them the way? And why am I suffering!

    Waheguru ji ka Khalsa
    Waheguru ji ki fateh

    GOOD thoughts…

    Found a good resource for a very old Gurudwara Sahib whose Caretakers were actually baptised by Guru Gobind Singh JI

    With all the due respect to your views and reviews, I would definitely beg to differ. If it be the case then where does Karma fits in this idealogy. Please forgive my ignorance and enlighten.
