For anyone who has even the slightest religious background, you know that a common question is, “What is God’s will?” And we’re all kind of taught that God’s will is something that we might not exactly like, but we have to deal with it anyway because it’s, well, God’s will and what we want doesn’t… Read More »
Most religious systems out there have some idea of “justice”: those who are good get rewarded, and those who are evil get punished.
Christianity postpones it to the afterlife: good people go to Heaven and evil people go to Hell. Some Eastern religions say it'll happen either later in this life or in a future one: good people get rewarded with good karma, and evil people get punished with bad karma.
It's just part of the religious framework, I think.
We, as humans, seem to have an egoic need to see good people rewarded and bad people punished. We celebrate when a murderer gets the death penalty. We root for the hero in a movie to have his happy ending.
But is there really justice in the Universe? Does the Universe care about right and wrong? Does the law of attraction bring good things to good people, and bad things to bad people?… Read More »
Karma is one of those topics honestly not brought up very much in law of attraction circles. It seems to be completely at odds with the philosophy of the LOA.
But it bears considering what, if any, relation there is between karma and the law of attraction. If karma is indeed real, does it mean that we can only manifest what’s in alignment with our karma? If karma does not exist, then does that mean that there are no repercussions to immoral actions?
Before writing this post, I did some research on what others are saying on karma and the law of attraction. I saw two general themes:
- Karma doesn’t exist, and you can manifest anything
- Karma exists, and those who are successful are successful because of good karma
Seems like a pretty important issue, right? So, I thought it called for a detailed post on the matter.… Read More »
When you look at the world as it is today, it’s rather easy to see it as broken, and in need of improvement.
As spiritual seekers, many of us ask, is it possible to create a perfect world? Is it possible to use the law of attraction to manifest a world that is free of suffering and full of harmony?
If so, how would such a world be created? What, exactly, would it look like?
Recently someone alluded to this very question, so I thought it would make a great topic for a blog post.… Read More »
Lately I’ve been focusing on solely the spiritual side of things. However, I think it is very important to bring the spiritual and the material together. This is something that is all too often overlooked, because often spiritual/religious people are uncomfortable with the material. It seems beneath them somehow, or wrong to be interested in.
Yet, this couldn’t be further from the truth, which insha’Allah I’ll show in this post. Materiality is really a part of spirituality, and a vital part at that.
I’ll be speaking specifically on the topic of money, because there is so much mistrust and apprehension around the subject of money in the spiritual community. It seems like the perfect place to start when discussing how to live in this world as a spiritual person.… Read More »
