Beyond Karma ... Into Enlightened Living

By Lauren Zimmerman

For centuries Earth has served as a place where Souls can manifest a physical expression of Self in order to learn cause and effect and the impact of various actions and energies. One of the results of the decision to create such a reality was karmic law. For every action there would be a reaction. For every injury to another, there would be "repayment" to Self. The need for karmic law was what precipitated the process of forgetting who we are as we entered the physical plane. If we had taken on a physical reality, remembering who we are, in all of its totality, none of the lessons, the lack, the suffering, etc., would have occurred. On a Soul level, we know who we are and would not play out the situations we've been playing out for centuries.

Now, on this evolutionary path we're on, one of the things that needs to be released, changed, healed, is the need for karma. The scales must be balanced. The need to play out pain, suffering, lack, separation from Self and Soul, etc., must be left behind as we incorporate the Truth of Soul into our daily expression of life.

The knowledge we gain in higher dimensional aspects of life varies greatly from the knowledge (and methods of learning) gained in a 3-D expression of life. Though there are hoards of Souls who still choose to use the karmic laws in order to learn, there is an ever-increasing number of Souls who are choosing to experience a 3-D Earth experience with the expression of Soul and Soul-wisdom intact. The process we are currently undergoing is one of the "waves" of intelligence-gathering that are needed in order to break through the centuries of energy build-up that currently hold this dimensional experience "hostage," keeping people in the cycle of forgetfulness of Soul.

Though there will continue to be dimensional realities which support the process of learning through pain and suffering, it is time for Earth to be released from the role it's been playing. We, as a species, have volunteered to assist in the process of release. Part of the way we are doing this is by healing ourselves "out of" our learned behavior and the energy it has generated in Earth's and in our energetic fields.

The process we are moving through, the evolutionary process is not new within existence. However, it is new within the confines of Earth. We are being assisted and watched by, literally, billions of others who reside in other dimensions. What we learn and how we learn it and accomplish the goals we've set for ourselves is setting a precedent for future worlds. As we move through this process, one of the primary things we need to understand as we set this example for others is that there is no need for karma.

What do I mean by that? Karma was/is a law set up to "punish" ourselves and others for actions and deeds that are, in someone's estimation, "wrong." Who is that someone who makes these judgments? It is each of us. How do we form those judgments? We learn them in this reality ... from each other. How did we get to be judge and jury and authority? (Brace yourself.) We became judge and jury and authority by forgetting who we are as Soul.

As Soul we understand and follow the path of living that takes all things and people into account. There is the utmost of respect, honor, and love. There is no mistreatment of anything within existence. In other words, there is Divine Harmony. This is the reality that is Truth as defined by our Souls. However, there is a necessity to "lower" our vibrations and, for the time we take human form, forget our origins of Soul in order to learn and understand the entirety of existence and the cause and effect impact of various energies. Energies created by the acting out of free will.

When we, as a species, understand that free will is, ultimately, what is ours without having to earn it, without having to separate ourselves and our actions from God the Creator and the Will of God, we will have come to understand how to use free will for the benefit of all. But first we have created a reality in which free will is an experimental tool. And then we have played out each role we've taken in Earth's reality, studying the cause and effect and energetic impact of free will without Divine Alignment. Now we are learning to align free will with God's Will. This is the process of learning how to become true co-creators ... as we walk the path of learning to be Creators. Everything is nothing more than a process we choose to create as we learn to become Creators.

What this means as far as being judge, jury, and authority is that we are judging and labeling our Soul's efforts to learn. Now I can understand the instinctual outcry against these words and what they seem to imply. These words may sound like approval of acts such as abuse, murder, rape, famine, etc. What is truly being said, however, is that such acts do not exist when all things are in Divine Harmony and understanding of Soul. Mistreatment of others is not a reality or a factor in higher dimensional realities. However, when there is a need to learn, though the lessons may seem harsh and destructive, such things are permissible within certain confines. The bottom line is ... how can we form a judgment about something that serves as a tool in our quest to accomplish something far greater?

At this time in our history, it is time to accept that we have chosen to create a very harsh reality in our effort to become greater Souls. Now we have gathered enough knowledge, as a group, to move beyond this reality. Now is the time for us, as a species, to accept that the fact-gathering mission is complete and that the time is now to return to our Soul-origins and understandings and release the need to continue gathering data by studying karma, free will without the incorporation of God's Will, and what it feels like to be out of Divine Alignment.

As we continue releasing the past reality and embracing Soul's reality, we're going to be seeing massive changes in our personal and global worlds. Enlightened living, unifying and expressing life with Soul-expression, is gifting us with the chance to be non-judgmental, understanding, compassionate, and broad-minded. Each of us on Earth will have our own pace as we walk this road of learning to live "beyond" the reality of Humankind's history. Each of us, as we come to fully accept that every other person is an extension of us and an extension of God the Creator, will begin to interact with each other in a different way. Tolerance for the path each of us chooses to walk as we walk out of the darkness and into the Light will become first and foremost. As we take one step forward it will be instinctual behavior to turn and reach back and show others how we achieved that step.

Sometimes we will be walking blindly, stepping into the abyss, not knowing if we will fall or suddenly find ourselves capable of flight. If we hold the understanding that each person is walking the same path toward Light, looking for their way out of the darkness, our judgments of them will become less severe, our understanding greater, our compassion deeper. They are, in fact, a part of us that has served all Souls in an effort to understand God's existence to the nth degree with the goal of making existence better for all. They are, after all, simply extensions of God and ourselves, seeking to bring a world of darkness into the Light.

As we incorporate our Souls into our physical expression of life on Earth, we will be drawing into this reality answers, wisdoms, solutions, (and more) from far beyond the reaches of the human mind. We will begin to see things we never imagined, experience things we've never dreamed. As Soul exists far beyond the reaches of the human mind, we must understand that it offers gifts of all kinds that may seem far, far beyond what we have called "science fiction." Soul has no limits, no boundaries, and no end to wisdom. As we draw Soul-wisdom into our daily lives we cannot judge what we will see and receive. Soul's interaction in our 3-D reality, as we continue the process of moving out of the darkness, is going to show us things we could not possibly conceive of ... with limited, human thinking. Moving beyond limited, human thinking is essential in order to embrace the gift of Light we, as a species, are creating.
