Every so often I get asked if there is such a thing as bad luck. The simple answer is yes and no. As for bad karma, we all know there is such a thing, but often have a hard time dealing with it, whether our own or another's. Today's article takes a new look at these things that seem to exist, from the angle that we have far more power to overcome and transmute bad luck and bad karma than we usually think.
As long time readers of this site know, I believe there is such a thing as "big K" Karma, and "little k" karma. The former are built into our hologram at birth, those causes that we must understand as part of our journey of Self realization. They include Sacred Wounds by which we will come to powerful forms of compassionate service for others who suffer the same challenges, as well as those major lessons we must learn in order to move beyond our lesser self.
"Little k" karmas are those we create as we move through life experiences, which yield "good" or "bad" results according to what we do or do not do. They are only important in the sense of being markers of greater lessons, or ways to modify our behavior, feelings, and thoughts. This helps us transmute unfortunate illusions, attachments, and aversions into more positive and enjoyable lives.
Many take the attitude that because it's karma, we have little or no control over what manifests or not. This of course is an illusion. It's the same with "luck." Often luck is merely the circumstance we have prepared for, knowingly or unknowingly. As with karma, we do have major control over what forms of "luck" do and do not manifest.
For more elaboration on these rather complex subjects, today we take a new look at Overcoming Bad Luck, Bad Karma, and Bad Life Circumstances.
Aum and blessings on this Easter 2008.
