The Law of One, Book II, Session 34
Questioner: Thank you.
Would you define karma?
Ra: I am Ra. Our understanding of karma is that which may be called inertia.
Those actions which are put into motion will continue using the ways of balancing until such time as the controlling or higher principle which you may liken unto your braking or stopping is invoked.
This stoppage of the inertia of action may be called forgiveness.
These two concepts are inseparable.
Questioner: If an entity develops what is called karma in an incarnation, is there then programming that sometimes occurs so that he will experience catalysts that will enable him to get to a point of forgiveness thereby alleviating the karma?
Ra: I am Ra. This is, in general, correct.
However, both self and any involved other-self may, at any time through the process of understanding, acceptance, and forgiveness, ameliorate these patterns.
This is true at any point in an incarnative pattern.
Thus one who has set in motion an action may forgive itself and never again make that error.
This also brakes or stops what you call karma.
The Law of One, Book I, Session 18
Questioner: You stated yesterday that forgiveness is the eradicator of karma.
I am assuming that balanced forgiveness for the full eradication of karma would require forgiveness not only of other-selves but also the forgiveness of self.
Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. You are correct.
We will briefly expand upon this understanding in order to clarify.
Forgiveness of other-self is forgiveness of self.
An understanding of this insists upon full forgiveness upon the conscious level of self and other-self, for they are one.
A full forgiveness is thus impossible without the inclusion of self.
Questioner: Thank you—a most important point.
