What is Happening in America?

Are we headed back to the Middle Ages?

 

The Law of Karma

 

6 August 2007

 

 

I am convinced that the allegations made in the Sourcebook, located here, are correct, and that what is presently happening in the United States is monstrous.

 

The men and women quoted in this document allege that the Bush administration is attempting to force upon its people martial law and dictatorship through the use of false-flag incidents like the events of September 11, 2001, the Afghanistani and Iraqi wars, a second planned 9/11, and an already-arranged nuclear war with Iran.

 

If anything is in the interests of national security, I would say that it is the removal of the entire Bush administration from office, down to the last co-conspirator, and then a clean-up of the co-conspirators in the military, intelligence community, industry, politics, and the media, before they start a nuclear World War III.

 

Often when a cabal such as this tries to overthrow a state, as the Bush regime is at present trying to do, the opposition is initially unsuccessful in bringing them down. That outcome sometimes occurs for the following reasons. 

First, the opposition is divided, enjoying the luxury of a democracy's freedom of opinion and expression, splitting down over minor issues.  Meanwhile, the cabal is single-minded and regimented.  The oppositions squabble with each other and presents a divided face to the regime. 

 

Second, the opposition usually fails to estimate the seriousness of the threat and fails to persuade others of its seriousness until it is too late to stop it.  Many opponents are in a stupour, not really believing that things so bad are happening, enjoying a decent lifestyle with all its technological perks, trapped in a web of career and family obligations, unable to fully rouse themselves from their torpour. One by one, they are later jailed by the regime and removed from the picture.

 

Third, the Bush administration and its accomplices have already committed acts of false imprisonment, torture, mass murder and high treason.  They already have blood on their hands - the blood of those who died on 9/11 and the blood of everyone in Afghanistan and Iraq cynically killed in the name of "freedom."  Thus, they are committed to that course of action in the future, while the use of terror and murder is nothing the opposition would imagine resorting to.  Hence the opposition is usually overwhelmed in the beginning by relentless force, as happened in Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, for instance.

 

However, as Gandhi observed, though cabals like the Bush regime attain power and hold it for while, wreaking chaos and destruction around them, Divine Providence does not allow them to last. All have fallen in the end, with a terrible fate awaiting their perpetrators.  It is only because the conspirators do not believe in God, despite their protestations to the opposite, that they embark upon the course of destructive action that they do.

 

To keep hope alive in the hard times ahead, I am summarizing what has been said throughout the ages about the manner in which the natural law of karma operates. It will be the law of karma, with us acting as its agents, that will eventually bring down this despotic regime.

The Law of Karma - Its essence is: what we sow we reap

The Law of Karma - ... at a time of the Lord's choosing 

 

They will be reaped in due season.   (Sri Krishna in BG, 121.)

 

Sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily. (Ecclesiastes 8:11.)

 

To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. (Deuteronomy 32:35.)

 

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.  (St. Paul in Romans 12: 19.)

 

The same lack of justice, the same cruelty and violence that you distributed, will be waiting for you, maybe not for twenty, thirty or forty years, but it will be there, standing in your way, and then you will realize that cosmic Intelligence does put everything down. If you are ill-intentioned and malicious, sooner or later you will receive the same treatment, inevitably: it was you who created the situation. (Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov, CML, 18.)

 

Everyone thinks that if justice existed, it would show itself more quickly, they don't understand the reason for delaying either punishment or recompense.... I know the reason for this slowness. It shows the goodness and mercy of Cosmic Intelligence. who wants to give humans the time to see, to consider things, even to repent and better themselves, to erase their mistakes. If the laws were there to punish immediately, humans would be reduced to nothing, they would be too crushed to improve themselves. Whereas, if they are given time in which to feel disadvantages, little pricks and hurts, they will perhaps start to think and make amends themselves. (Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov, CML, 24-5.)

 

The Law of Karma - The law sees that the gain of the wicked goes to the just 

 

For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. (Ecclesiastes 2:26.)

 

A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just. (Proverbs 13:22.)

 

As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool. (Jeremiah 17:10-1.)

 

The Law of Karma - The means of our sin will be the means of our chastening 

 

The punishment is adapted to his sin and comes to him from the fiendish spirit of his own sin in that way and degree in which he harassed and vexed (others) and revered, praised and served what is vile. (Ahuramazda in Zarathustra, GZ, 127.)

 

His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins. (Proverbs 5:22.)

 

A man is punished by the things through which he sins. ("The Wisdom of Solomon," APO, 198.)

 

He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it. (Ecclesiastes 10:8.)

 

The wrongdoers are led unwittingly by their own appetites. (Koran, 189.)

 

Inasmuch as you put your trust in your own judgment, not having God in sight and not recognizing that everything proceeds from God, God therefore converted that very means and endeavour into a means of bringing about [your] diminishment. (Rumi in DR, 17.)

 

The Law of Karma  - It takes no account of custom 

 

As to cruelty. This is of two kinds, intentional and unintentional. Intentional cruelty is purposely to give pain to another living being; and that is the greatest of all sins -- the work of a devil rather than a man. ... [Inquisitors, vivisectors, schoolmasters, etc. all] try to excuse their brutality by saying that it is the custom; but a crime does not cease to be a crime because many commit it. Karma takes no account of custom; and the karma of cruelty is the most terrible of all. (Krishnamurti, AFM, 69-70.)

 

The Law of Karma Ė Love is the fulfilment of the law

 

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. (Jesus in Matthew 7:12.)

 

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (St. Paul in Romans 13:10.)

 

The effect of karma wears away if one takes refuge in God. (Paramahansa Ramakrishna in GSR, 817.)

 

A true lover of God has nothing to fear, nothing to worry about. He is aware that the Divine Mother knows everything. The cat handles the mouse one way, but its own kitten a very different way. (Paramahansa Ramakrishna in GSR, 252.)
