Relationship karma is something we each carry with us in many relationships.
Relationship karma can be found in the connections we have with family, friends, and co workers. And of course, all romantic relationships.
Not every relationship will have karma and not every relationship is karmic. Yet we will learn fundamental lessons in life by engaging in relationships with karmic connections and soulmates.
When someone has a strong intuitive connection, Buddhism suggests that it’s because of karma, some past connection. ~~Richard Gere
Many people believe karma is punishment for past actions. But the karma police aren’t going to come and get you and turn you into a slug in your next life for any misdeeds you commit in this one.
THE PUPOSE OF KARMA IS TO TEACH NOT PUNISH
But what exactly is karma? It’s a Sanskrit word for action and the universal law of cause and effect. This states that everything we do and say carries energy into the world what effects our present reality.
Every action, has a reaction.
In other words, every word we speak, decision we make and action we take creates an energetic imprint on our life.
We create our reality from those thoughts, words and deeds. Additionally karma is connected to our life blueprint and the soulmate contracts we have with the soulmates in our lives. This of course will involve spiritual and personal growth we need to evolve as humans on the planet.
Karma, ahhh. We sow what we reap. We reap what we sow! The law of cause and effect. And we are all under this law. ~~ Nina Hagen
If the purpose of karma is to teach, the purpose of relationship karma is to teach you about relationships. Relationship karma is the combination of the experiences we gain through soulmate union.
These lessons, dramas and traumas we acquire in both the current and past lifetimes. These scenarios are being played out by the two of you, over and over, until you get it right.
Some of these experiences will be positive. And of course some will be negative. Unfortunately, many people chose to learn things the hard way. It’s up to each member of the soulmate couple just how tough these lessons are going to be.
IT HAS TO PLAY OUT
When you have relationship karma with someone, the karma must be play out. If it doesn’t, you’ll either 1) have the same lesson with someone else or 2) have it with this same soulmate during a later incarnation. It’s how the wheel of life works.
And you have a choice whether or not you want to continue to experience karma with someone. That’s the beauty of free will.
The choice really is up to you and how much you’re willing to endure to be with someone who’s not stepping up to the plate. A connection between the two of you is no excuse for mistreating each other or being mistreated. This is supposed to be a higher level relationship. Not one where standards are lowered.
Karma moves in two directions. If we act virtuously, the seed we plant will result in happiness. If we act non-virtuously, suffering results. ~~ Sakyong Mipham
