Through life, our paths cross with others. From our parents to our children, from our brothers and sisters to our marriage partners. According to karmic teachings, we always meet the same souls, only in different masks and different roles.
The soul goes through this cycle of the physical incarnation because it has a kind of debt or obligation, meaning it is not entirely free. Through interaction with others, we have the opportunity to free ourselves from the shackles of karma.
Karma is only the result of acts we have committed from lack of love and from lack of connection with its source. Because of the lack of love, we consciously or unconsciously hurt others, or they hurt us. Now we are in this karma bank to resolve all residual loans, all by law which is the same for everyone.
Karmic records are stored in Akasha (the memory of the universe) which are not available to our conscious mind but we can learn the lesson of our merging through the feelings and emotions that others cause in us.
If a person reaches their goal, they move away from our lives. Some people make us feel unpleasant when we are around them, so it’s a bit of a relief to get rid of them.
However, we must not ignore these emotions and their presence in us. Their origin is in us. The mud and dirt from our suppressed negative experiences and our unwanted emotional states of fear and pain are in the depths of our beings.
All the people we meet throughout life are our teachers, whose role is to help us free ourselves from the poisons to which we are attached.
The first contact with a person takes place at the visual level.
Generally, the attraction comes from another subconscious level, where there is a reading of the subconscious karmic recordings. Our karmic record and the other person’s karmic record “recognize” the essentials for erasing our karma and so it is about connecting or entering into a relationship.
In a relationship, we do not grow by expressing our best characteristics, which are not the real us, but by having conflicts. Times of conflict are worth gold because important things happen. When we have our first moment of jealousy, we have to ask ourselves, “Why do I have this feeling?” “What is it in me?” Don’t forget that feeling.
We must work on it to put this wandering fragment that is not integrated and which seeks its place in the mosaic. These fragments are the weaknesses of our personality. Perhaps, we were outcasted in our childhood, and this rejection in our crucial period of our lives made us a magnet for this kind of emotion.
Thus, over time, our personality polarizes and disintegrates a particular emotional experience such as fear, pain, hatred, jealousy, etc., until a part of us continues to function stably.
We force our idea of stability in relationships with others, but if the partner’s behavior is out of the idea and if we are not able to understand some of their movements, we move on to fragments of fear, hence our mind draws its beliefs.
In fact, our partner plays a role only in creating the mosaic of our personality.
We cannot understand this because we see our partner as someone who is trying to harm us. There is a karmic thing in living these emotions. We are building a relationship with a person who, in the distant past, had the same feelings for us.
The idea of karma is not for you to suffer, but to unite you with both unconditional love and spiritual integrity. Learn to act out of love – because I am a partner and a partner is me.
They are the torn piece of us and we are all torn pieces of this great puzzle. I am at the same time, the drop (me) and the ocean (everyone) because there is an ocean in every small drop.
And until relationships are not crystallized at this level, people will continue the cycle of incarnation in different lives and roles.
