Solar Systems have Karma,

and beyond... 
"What if what you term as God heard everything
  you thought and considered it a request for it to
 give you what you were thinking? 
Would you change the way that you think?" 
quote - American Monk http://www.hairfield.com/
 & Zen Priest Dr. Steven L. Hairfield

The Twelve Sacred Principles of Karma


 1. THE GREAT SACRED PRINCIPLE
As you sow, so shall you reap. 

This is also known as the Law of Cause and Effect.
Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us.
If what we want is happiness, peace, friendship, love...
Then we should BE happy, peaceful, loving, a friend.


2. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF CREATION
Life doesn't just HAPPEN, it requires our participation.
We are one with the Universe both inside and out.
Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state.
BE and DO yourself what you want to have in your life.


3. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF HUMILITY
What you refuse to accept, will continue for you. If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.


4. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF GROWTH
Wherever you go, there you are.
For us to GROW in Spirit it is WE who must change and
not the people, places or things around us.
The only given we have in our lives is OURSELVES,
and that is the only factor we have control over.
When we change who and what we are within our heart, our life changes too.


5. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF THE MIRRIORS
   (THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF RESPONSIBILITY)
Whenever there is something wrong, there is something wrong in me. We mirror what surrounds us and what surrounds us mirrors us: we must take responsibility for what is in our life.


6. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF SYNCHRONICITY
   (THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF CONNECTION)
Even if something we do seems inconsequential,
it is very important that it gets done as everything in the Universe is connected. Each step leads to the next step and so forth and so on. Someone must do the initial work to get a job done. Neither the first step nor the last are of greater significance - they were both needed to accomplish the task.
Past, Present, Future... they are all connected.



7. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF DIRECTION & MOTIVES
   (THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF FOCUS)
You can't think of two things at the same time.
You should climb up a ladder on step at a time.
When you lose your focus you let in insecurities and anger.


8. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF WILLINGNESS
   (THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF GIVING & HOSPITALITY)
If you believe something to be true, then sometime in your life you will be called upon to demonstrate that truth.
Here is where we put what we SAY that we have learned into PRACTICE.



9. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF HERE & NOW
Looking back to examine what was prevents us from being totally in the HERE AND NOW. Old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, old dreams... prevent us from having new ones.

10. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF CHANGE
History repeats itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.

11. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF PATIENCE & REWARD
All Rewards require initial toil. Rewards of lasting value require patient and persistent toil. True joy follows doing what we're suppose to be doing, and waiting for the reward to come in it's own time.


12. THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF VALUE 

& UPLIFTMENT (THE SACRED PRINCIPLE OF SIGNIFICANCE & INSPIRATION)
You get back from something whatever you've put into it. The value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it. Every personal contribution is also a contribution to the Whole. Lack luster contributions have no impact on the Whole or work to diminish it.
