Cheating or suppression can have major effects on your emotional life. But can it also affect your karma? Most people who understand and believe in karma are firmly on the side of “yes”.
Our deeds, thoughts and actions create our past, present, and future. Therefore, it is the karma we have created that shapes and moulds how things in our life unfold. Ultimately, the pain or joy we have created for ourselves and those who surround us will find us again. The energy you put out is the energy you get back. If you are hiding something now, something will be hidden from you.
"Cheating and suppression are serious business, be warned! Just like any other form of irresponsible behavior, you must pay. Life is a lesson, and these lessons can carry over from one lifetime to another - so it's important to do the best we can."
However, some don't see it as so black and white. There is another side to this, Though cheating can cause pain on both sides, there are people who have chosen this route and resolved their issues after the fact. Sometimes it takes a painful situation in order for people to get to the place where they can communicate.
Contrary to popular belief, Karma is not about reward and punishment. Karma is simply a matter of cause and effect, a natural law which brings into our present existence extensions or consequences of what we have thought, said, done or caused to be done in the past. Basically, karma is a kind of boomerang which returns to you. What you put out into the universe comes back, either in this lifetime or in others. Sometimes one can see glimpses of your soul's intent, as well as what's waiting for you down the road you are traveling now, and suggest alternatives. Astrology can show broad karma, the basic ingredients of your character and the timing of pivotal events. It can identify building blocks of your character and karma, and reveals the dominant forces at work in various phases of your life. But you still have to add the essential ingredient - free will. You get to choose. That's what it's all about!
When the universe pushes back, as it often does, Karmic Law is the reason, At that point, no amount of pressure applied to a stressful situation will fix it. In fact, force generally makes our circumstances worse! The harder we push, the harder the universe pushes back.
But what if the relationship you're in is the wrong one? What if the person you're with isn't actually your soul mate? When people ask, “Is this my soul mate?” what they really want to know is if this other person will make them happy for the rest of their life. Most people who understand or believe in karma will agree that the stress that accompanies a karmic relationship is where the growth occurs for the individuals. This is where the action is. I have discussed the concept of soul mates with many learned people, they all are in full agreement that the person you are with at any given time is your soul mate. There are no coincidences. You are meant to be with that person at this time. As said “You get to choose. That's what it's all about !"
So choose right !
