    Types of karmic bondage 

    As mentioned before, any karmic account is an opportunity to experience the other side of a duality. Many times we could ask ourselves: “but what I have done to deserve this experience?” That is unnecessary to know, for it could only produce wasteful guilt. Mostly, the result of previous actions come from lives before this one. We are not that same person now; but we have the capacity to withstand the experience which will benefit our spiritual growth, that is the “plus” side. No one becomes “spiritual” by only experiencing the fun side of Life; but like the phoenix bird, we need to be reborn out of our own ashes. Many times the intensity of those karmic experiences will seem to be the funeral pyre. As the BK teaches, there are “old souls” who have been experiencing many life experiences and thus, “creating” karmic accounts / moving into the other side of duality. When it is time to settle those experiences, these could be perceived by many, as experiences of extreme suffering. On the other hand “souls” with few births in the cycle of time, have the experience of what could be perceived as a “good life” for the most part. However, experiences are according to capacity and that is given by Life, the “Drama” itself. “Fairness” in Life, has a different twist as we will see.

    There are karmic experiences dealing with the perception of “losing something”, it could be a job, wealth, health, a relationship or more often a combination. In this article, we will go into 3 basic types and one unusual type of karmic bondage. The one that most BKs are familiar with, is the body. Often ailments and hospital visits, weird diseases, physical limitations, even the experience of so called “evil entities” are among this class. In my observation, this experience could limit a person to the point where suicidal tendencies could be experienced, as physical pain could be intolerable. Sometimes, even normal ‘medicine’ could have detrimental effects. I recall the incident of someone who couldn’t get rid of her morning routine of throwing up. It was very debilitating and for no apparent reason. After many years of using medical drugs to subside the issue and without any success, the drugs weakened her body even more. The “real” problem was an unresolved emotional situation from childhood. Life brought the solution after many years of suffering. During that time, this person improved her ability to deal with pain. She had a higher threshold than most mortals. At the same time, her character changed: From an independent, do as I please kind of attitude; it changed to a gentle, tolerant person. Physical karmic accounts have in my opinion, an underlying cause of lack of self love. This person could have the tendency to inflict suffering or pain to herself by being negligent of her own needs. This person will ‘learn’ about self acceptance and self love. It is an invitation to live a life which departs from the ‘normal’ every day person. It is important for this person to share his experiences and findings to help others heal. Life may compensate this person with the experience of paranormal powers and experiences as a source to enjoy Life.

    Karmic experiences relating with the mind, is another type. A person could experience a mind disease such as schizophrenia, bipolarity or any other mental disease like OCD. A mind disease cannot be cured by science. Many times it is something to endure throughout a life time but sometimes, it is mysteriously cured. That is when the karmic period for that experience is over. This person may experience rejection, low self esteem and great dependency on others. Great suffering may be experienced. While OCD could be easily self cured when there is observation on how the mind could subdue a person’s will through a belief in some fearful event happening, if a repetitive routine is not performed; other mind diseases which involve an unbalanced mood swing between manic episodes and depressing ones; could be harder to deal with not only by the person experiencing this karmic bondage, but also by close relatives. While a physical karmic bondage could be the opportunity for close relatives to learn to disengage from the suffering of others, so they could be more helpful; those experiencing mental diseases could teach their relatives a high level of tolerance. Life presents a teacher in a different, unusual form.

    There are karmic accounts dealing with relationships. A person could be often misinterpreted. In a relationship, these could lead to fights. Also, this could bring the affected person into self isolation, for he will feel misunderstood. It could be difficult to fall in love, for those who he feels attracted to, will reject him; but those who he doesn’t feel attracted to, those may pursue him. This type of karmic bondage is the invitation to solve any issues of emotional dependency and the opportunity to observe his own interaction with others. Rather than believing that the culprit of “bad luck” resides in the behavior of others, this person may start to look at his own behavior instead. That is self-observation.

    One of the toughest karmic bondage is the one related with clearing family ancestral issues. That is a family karma. A few family members may be selected for this after many generations. These individuals will live an unusual life style far away from the norm without this being their choice. It could be tough because, it doesn’t depend on the readiness of a particular family member, but all of them have to do their share in representation of their ancestors. Life will bring many teachings in that setting as well.

    In a nutshell: A “normal” person having a “normal” Life, will have the “normal’ experiences and nothing else. Those who have the capacity to withstand painful experiences on the other hand; have greater capacity for the sublime as well. Both sides will need to be experienced and those are directly proportional to each other. That is how “fairness” shows up in Life. No one can escape the experience of duality, for that is the essence of living.

    Liberation from Karmic accounts 

    Typically in the BK world these “karmic bondages” refer to relationships. For example, BK A could fall in love with BK B. Even though, this is not encouraged and even forbidden in the BK world, this happens more often than what we know of. It is in “normal” human nature.

    Whenever that “love” is not corresponded due to the other person lack of interest or due to the BK setting which will not allow for this to flourish, then for sure; we are under a karmic bondage.

    Mentally we could say: “ I don’t remember what I have done to you, but forgive me and I forgive you for the pain that is coming through you. Moreover, here comes my blessings to you.”

    That sounds lovely. However ineffective to “get rid of that bondage.” It is important to be honest as well, and admit that we are uttering those words because we want out of a particular suffering. Yes, it is about us.

    Every conscious effort of that “I” to reject a particular experience, is in fact; a lack of understanding.

    Let me illustrate: Karmic accounts are part of Life. It is the play of action and reaction. It really fits into our world of duality whenever “I give, then I take” or If I have taken, then I need to give.

    A karmic account is not an invitation to fix things. It is rather an invitation to experience a new experience. The way we deal with that is the teaching that we need to learn to move forward in Life.

    BK A has a situation with BK B. Is he trying to conquer the heart of BK B despite the fact that this is not allowed in the BK setting? Then, that is the teaching. To observe how we are willing to bend some rules to accomplish our perceived needs. Perhaps BK A rejects completely any association with BK B. Then, that rejection is tinted with an inner lie. Can we observe that? Any action that we decide to DO will bring a reaction. If we try to solve things by believing that we should act in a predetermined way, then we are not acknowledging what Life is trying to tell us. There are no formulas.

    Many times our own experience of suffering is the way to dissolve that karmic account. Therefore, what is the sense of trying to figure out how to resolve something? The solution will unfold itself when we learn to observe what Life brings rather than to blindly follow a philosophy, an idea or some moral value of what should be right.

    It is important to point out that we do not know the extent of how a karmic account will go. It could go on for the next life time and that is necessary, unless we are ready for self realization and that is not like “going to your auntie’s home.”

    In a nutshell, there is no way for us to “settle” a karmic account or to liberate ourselves from a karmic bondage out of our own doing, formula or magic spell; for that situation is the fair return, a consequence. However, paraphrasing the Murli; “we could feel a crucifix like a thorn.” That is the mature extent of how spirituality could help us deal with a karmic situation.
