How do we know this can’t possibly be true? Because “bad” things happen to “good” people constantly.
This is possibly the concept that most frequently holds people back from creating positive and abundant circumstances!
You see, most of our concepts of being “good” are actually derived from external sources of authority. We are taught what it means to be “good” by society, our families, the educational system, the industries we work in, even our close friends and our loved ones.
What actually generates positive karma is taking action that is CONGRUENT to our Divine, Soul-level nature.
And, at Soul-level, each and every one of us is different.
That means what generates positive Karma is different for each and every one of us. The choices that generate fantastic consequences for one person will generate nothing but struggle for someone else.
We cannot try creating positive Karma by following the generalized rules of “good” behavior set forth by society. In fact, following those rules can end up generating incredibly negative personal karma for us!
Obviously, that doesn’t mean we stop being kind, caring, compassionate people … but if we are not creating an abundant, joyful experience we must be willing to acknowledge that our current patterns of choice aren’t creating the positive karmic circumstances that we most certainly deserve.
