Karma Versus Meditation

The Karma lives with us,​ the​ karma is​ part of​ our lives from the​ very moment of​ our birth to​ the​ moment of​ our death,​ because every time that we do something and even every time that we stop doing something,​ that generates karma,​ and you​ cannot avoid it​ in​ any way.

Of course that not all the​ karma that we generate is​ the​ same,​ there is​ a​ kind of​ karma that ties us or​ chains us to​ this life,​ and another kind of​ karma that liberates us of​ the​ reincarnation cycle.

The karma that chains us,​ known as​ Vishayakarma,​ has as​ fruits the​ misery and the​ lack of​ interior peace,​ while the​ karma generated by good actions or​ disinterested actions,​ know as​ the​ Sreyokarma allow us to​ reach the​ prosperity and the​ happiness of​ the​ soul,​ that it​ is​ much more than reaching the​ simple external happiness.

Every time that we face an​ activity with the​ desire of​ obtaining a​ certain result,​ this throws us into the​ arms of​ the​ desire,​ the​ greed and the​ ego demons,​ while only the​ pure actions that we do for love without taking into account the​ possible consequences of​ them,​ are the​ kind of​ actions that drive us little by little toward the​ illumination and the​ liberation.

That ones whose nature allows them to​ carry out this kind of​ unselfish activities,​ little by little realize that God provides them of​ all that they need and of​ all that confers them the​ interior peace. Another form of​ achieving the​ yearned interior peace is​ the​ meditation.

Perhaps you​ might ask yourself why? Why is​ the​ meditation so necessary?

Because the​ man always acts in​ two dimensions,​ the​ external dimension governed by the​ physical senses,​ and the​ internal dimension governed by the​ intelligence and the​ mind.

The internal conscience cannot move for itself,​ but rather needs the​ guide of​ the​ intelligence and the​ mind,​ that are the​ ones related with the​ external world,​ they are as​ the​ oxen that pull a​ carriage. These oxen are anxious to​ begin to​ walk,​ but to​ take us to​ the​ correct destination they should be educated,​ they should be indicated which is​ the​ route that takes us to​ the​ place to​ which wants to​ arrive the​ internal conscience. And these are the​ roads of​ the​ Truth,​ the​ Rightness,​ the​ Peace and the​ Love.

Then to​ liberate us from the​ enslaving karma,​ it​ is​ necessary to​ teach the​ intelligence and mind's oxen the​ art of​ dragging the​ carriage of​ the​ internal conscience,​ and this is​ achieved by means of​ the​ practices of​ the​ meditation and the​ repetition of​ the​ name of​ God.

And the​ conscience,​ to​ be able to​ guide the​ oxen of​ the​ intelligence and the​ mind,​ must calm and control the​ conflicting desires that infest the​ mind,​ and this is​ achieved when we learn how to​ point our mind to​ a​ single direction.

When thanks to​ the​ meditation,​ the​ bewildered mind dives in​ the​ view and repetition of​ the​ name of​ the​ Lord,​ the​ Divine Splendor able to​ burn the​ wrong and to​ illuminate the​ happiness is​ manifested.

It is​ easy to​ understand the​ benefits of​ the​ meditation. Anyone that undertakes a​ task,​ knows that only when he concentrates his efforts toward a​ single point,​ he can achieve the​ desired success. Even the​ most insignificant tasks require concentration,​ and the​ power of​ an​ unshakable effort is​ so big,​ that even the​ worst difficulties surrender to​ it.

When we practice the​ meditation in​ the​ Supreme Being,​ the​ mind learns how to​ retire its attention from the​ material objects,​ and the​ life acquires a​ new splendor when we get aware of​ the​ Divine Essence that is​ inside us,​ and guides us into the​ state of​ Blessedness.

How sweet is​ a​ fruit? There's no way to​ explain that appropriately,​ the​ only way of​ knowing that is​ to​ eat the​ fruit.

How good is​ the​ meditation? There's no way of​ knowing the​ taste of​ its fruits until we don't decide to​ experience it.
