What we really need, are the times when religion and government relied solely on God.

The modern prophets, philosophers, research scientist, and electronic technologists, should see to use their 'upgraded' knowledge, to enhance what the ancestors 'humbly' did, by the use of God's grace.  Ouch

"Capitalist markets" and "revolutionary ideas", are all in the bible book of Proverbs. They can all 'borrow' from the Wisest Man who ever lived!

Proverbs 8:1

"Does not wisdom keep calling out, and discernment giving forth its voice?"
Pro. 8;12

"I, wisdom, I have resided with shrewdness and I find even the knowledge of thinking abilities..."

I like the part of the scriptures that they fulfilled, however, that their will be an increase in knowledge. That is how we enjoy music with all of the various instruments and various MP3's that the young people crave.
 we also enjoy the many types of cars introduced every year, that is if we can afford them. There is modern technology even in health care, like Mommograms, X-Rays, and such to detect if something is about to go physically wrong. This is the way they should use their knowledge, to help people. The small man does not understand revolutionary anything. Star

Good Karma .. Bad Karma

Karma is one of the West's best known Eastern Mystical concepts, even featuring in popular songs by John Lennon (Instant Karma), David Bowie (Karma Man), and Culture Club (Karma Chameleon) among others.

Some years ago the then England football manager Glenn Hoddle, a genuinely Spiritual man, was sacked for an ill-considered remark that disabled people were paying for the sins of past lives.

Definition of Karma

Karma is simply the process of cause and effect. If you do A, B will happen. If you plant tomato seeds, and water and look after them, tomatoes will grow.

whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap St Paul, Galatians 6-7

Before we are born in this world we decide, while still in the realms of Spirit and along with our higher guides, the lessons we shall pursue here. Spirit helps us pursue these lessons by creating the conditions necessary for us to receive our chosen experience.

Karma is not about punishment. In Spirit there is no absolute right or wrong. It is about experience and fulfillment of purpose. The idea that we are punished for sins is a man-made form of social control. A highly advanced soul may choose to incarnate into a crippled body, or as an insect, if that is beneficial to their progress.

Working with Karma

Karma influences our current life in two ways. First, we carry karma as part of our life conditions, though not all of our conditions are karmic in origin. Karma is the part of our conditions that represents unfinished business and other residues from the past. Second, we create future karma continually with every thought and action.

As an individuated part of Spirit there will be particular areas of growth necessary for our personal evolution. There are also areas in which we may best contribute to the growth of Spirit in its totality. Sometimes karma thrusts us into diametrically opposite conditions than we previously experienced.

The first step in dealing with existing karma is awareness and acknowledgment of it. Are there any themes that seem to recur throughout your life? Nothing happens by chance. Recurrent themes suggest the hand of karma. These recurrent themes are telling you they are providing conditions for some necessary life experience.

This experience may be obvious to you, but where it is not you may need to ask Spirit for guidance through prayer, meditation, or through your dreams.

Once you understand the karmic themes of your incarnation you can start working with them, ie swim with the tide rather than against it. If you find it hard to acquire or hold money, you need to practice good money management. If you find it hard to make friends you need to be that bit nicer to others… If you're not sure how to work with your karma, ask for guidance and be open to the answers.

The second aspect of karma is that it is being created all the time. Every act of will, every thought, is a karmic act. By acting in accordance with our Spiritual purpose in particular and Spiritual principles in general ("thy will be done") we create good karma for tomorrow. But good karma doesn't mean material success, it is concerned with Spiritual progress and making one's soul available to more advanced lessons rather than continually repeating grade 1.

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you Matthew 7-120

Karma works at a more immediate level by returning to you what you give to others. There's nothing particularly mystical about this. If you're friendly to others, you receive friendship. If you're generous, people are more inclined to be generous to you.

Karma and Luck

Luck is the quality that seems to attract good things to some people and repel them from others. But is luck real, or all in the mind?

To some degree luck is an illusion, or simply a matter of how you look at life. Say someone won $10,000 on the lottery, but just missed the jackpot by one number. Some woul consider themselves lucky to get $10,000, while others would be cursing their misfortune not to win a million. If you find yourself cursing your luck, take time to count your blessings. You will find they are many.

The "other man's grass is greener" syndrome also distorts our perception of luck. Human nature tends to notice others' good fortune and our own bad. In fact everyone has their share of problems, burdens, challenges, and blessings too, to lighten the load. The key here is to focus upon your own pathway.

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players Shakespeare

Having said all that, luck as a manifestation of karma, is real. Some people do attract money jobs, the right partner… That is part of their conditions for this particular lifetime. All we can do is try to recognize our own particular conditions and to operate to the maximum within these. If you're unlucky at gambling, don't gamble, or if you do make sure the amounts involved are insignificant.

Luck is a lot like opportunities I think ... and not recognize by many even if its beating you up ... LOL ... some individuals are better at identifying and using as leverage to get what they want ... a willingness to listen ... learn and grow sure helps ... to be open to new ideas and even other ways of seeing and doing ... never have to embrace but at least give consideration ... Wink
