Finally freedom from karma! A safe and effective method and all the reasons why…DO try this at home!

There’s an ancient Hawaiian Ho’oponopono practice of healing oneself via mental cleansing. When addressing any pain, sorrow, lack of balance or area needing healing, one simply says the words “I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. I love you.” This involves taking responsibility not only for oneself but for all the world.

Even the worst criminals hold a sacred flame within. It is up to us who have abandoned them to say “I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. I love you.” If one is abandoned, aren’t we all abandoned at least in some way? All violence stems from fear. Fear is not to be fought or opposed. It is to be forgiven. Yet this idea goes far deeper. When we can take responsibility for the whole world, we shift the possibility and take seriously the idea that we make the world.

I believe this is the missing link and way to free ourselves from karma. It requires a different way of “seeing” our lives – as intrinsic to creation (as well as being creation itself!). Thus it becomes self-evident that all life is sacred.

The days of following gurus have ended – it is the teaching that is important, the wisdom that lasts beyond the life of the teacher. Find every kernel of truth and then most important, follow it, teach it, live it. And don’t keep the wisdom to yourself – a candle does not lose its fire by lighting other candles.

Man maketh the world. This does not negate taking responsibility for yourself. As Buddha taught, “You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” Taking responsibility for yourself is taking responsibility for the whole world. Taking responsibility for the world is taking responsibility for yourself.

The true profession of man is to realize that his responsibility is the world.

This is the way to freedom from karma.

Practice: Using a picture of the globe, imagine the world and all the people in it whilst saying these works…“I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. I love you.”

If there is any area of your life requiring healing, or any person you know requiring healing, add this to your list. It’s easier if you have an image – otherwise just write the person’s name down with their birthdate.

For instance:
Myself (my life)
Those who I’ve hurt or wronged (intentionally and unintentionally)
My sister Ellen (06 March 1975)
John Doe (14 April 1980)
My career abundance.
Getting paid on time.
My job.

Keep saying these words as you read the list, visualize and feel the healing as if it’s already done…“I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. I love you.”
