The 12" Chau Gong on High C Stand - A Great Desktop Gong


by Andrew Borakove October 05, 2017

Karma. Karma. Karma.
Peoples talk about it.
Think they know what it's all about.
Yo! You reap what you sow, motha-effer!
Do Good = Get Good. Do Bad = Get Bad.

Sure, there's some of that simple equation, my peeps in the Gong Hood! BUT IT AIN'T ALL THAT.

Karma is an energy, and how the Divine seeks to have it play out has many forms.

Yes, we've seen the former Slave Trader reincarnate and use his skills of navigating bodies around the world for good this time, helping free young girls from sex trafficking.

Or the theater producer who helped others shine on stage one lifetime come back and get to be the actor in the next.

But don't get stuck on elementary school math with it.

Just because someone is a jerk to you in this lifetime doesn't mean they have to learn the flipside and be on the receiving end of an jerky asshole in the future. Or that they are mean to you because you were a jerk to them.

IT COULD BE.... BUT WE WOULD NEVER GET OUT OF THIS MAYA IF THAT WAS THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN.

Suppose someone is mean to you. Maybe you, as a spirit with many incarnations have reached a point where you are needing to find your neutrality to jerks-assholes-dickwads and thus get your strength.

And maybe this current jerk, well maybe they have incarnated a lot of times as super nice nuns and well behaved quiet types and they needed to find their warrior self again.

So you two were a perfect match! Someone who needs to learn to be tougher, and someone who needs to learn how not be thrown off their path by a jerk.

So you may think "bad karma" in this situation, when literally it is a match made in heaven. Created from a space of love.

We are all learning and becoming more whole as souls. And it's about knowledge as spirit. If an experience helps you grow, in ways you may not understand, it is for the good of us all, so we can reacher greater love and awareness.

Karma is an energy.

And as such, if you have learned what you wanted to learn, what was suggested you learn, then you can release it, simply and easily. You don't have to hold on it anymore.

You don't have to create more karma to fix old karma.

KARMA DISSOLVES WITH FORGIVENESS.

FORGIVENESS IS AN ENERGY TOO.

Yes, it is turning the other cheek, but that "space" is an energy.

When you have a situation or relationship that feels like it based on karma, imagine the energy of forgiveness filling that space.

And take a moment to strike this gong. And let it dissolve that karma.



The 12" Chau Gong on the High C Stand was known as the Dissolving Karma Gong in the early days of Gongs Unlimited.
