[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: June 2005]
[Tibtyc] Good evening, Michael. How can one speed up the work on karma, external and internal? I begin to realize that I have procrastinated a lot in my life. Also, in what way can the concept of Triads helps us to understand, and work on, karma? That is my question.
MEntity: In answer to your first version of the question: One can “speed up” the process of Karma simply by doing it. There are no “short cuts,” but there can be resistance, which can greatly delay the balancing of Karma. In terms of external Karma, all Fragments involved must be present, so a great deal of the “speed” of that process is dependent on group effort.
[Tibtyc] Present on Earth?
If the Karmic scenario originated “on Earth,” then it is most often balanced in the same arena. There are exceptions, however, if the primary element of the Karma is Intellectual or Emotional.
In terms of internal Karma (self karma), one merely need drop all resistance choose to do the work that is required.
In answer to your second version of your question:
The concept of the Triad is tremendously helpful in approaching, processing, and integrating the experience of Karma, internally and externally. ALL KARMA is approached from either the Positive or Negative and is concluded in the Neutral.
In MOST CASES, the Karma is approached from the POSITIVE, moved into and through the Negative, and finding resolution in the Neutral.
We will clarify here that we are speaking in terms of Balancing Karma, not Creating it.
If one were to think of the process of walking as the same process of balancing Karma, one can understand the Triad:
A step is taken forward (Positive), there is an off-balance, mid-air moment that leaves everything dependent on one leg (Negative), with a final landing of both feet on the ground (Neutral).
Karma is one of the many reasons so many relationships seem to go “bad.” They are initiated with an alluring, compelling magnetism simply to get the Personalities into the Karmic Sequence, which then allows the elements for the Negative phase to unfold. Often, when the Karma is balanced, there is no longer an interest in the relationship, which the relationship is often just a means of balancing that Karma.
For most Older Souls, there is little external Karma with which to deal, but a seemingly unending source of Self-Karma to endure.
In terms of Self-Karma, we would say that to find conscious Neutrality, one must first determine the battle that is occurring internally and name it. In other words, if one has Self-Karma around Body Image, it will be helpful to define the Positive and Negative aspects that create the inner polarization, such as “I AM UGLY” vs “I AM BEAUTIFUL.”
In all cases of Self-Karma, there are “two sides” to the battle. There is a perpetual conflict between The Truth and The Lie. The Neutrality comes only when one is capable of seeing the commonality between the two. In other words, the commonality between the concepts of “I am beautiful” and “I am ugly” is… I AM. The definitions beyond “I AM” are merely a means of dividing yourself.
[Tibtyc] Sorry, what would Intellectual Karma be like?
Lying to an individual wherein he makes a choice that is affected by that lie, can lead to Intellectual Karma.
That is one example
