The Seven Karmic Cycles

By George A. Boyd © 2017

Most people are aware of the law of cause and effect—that your thoughts, words, and deeds have short and long-term consequences. They are not typically aware, however, of the changes that occur as they evolve spiritually and bring successive orders of conative faculties to bear on their karmic substrate.

These seven orders of your interface with karma are shown below. These are seven progressive karmic cycles that appear as you evolve spiritually.

Karmic cycle one – Dynamic Kriyaman Karma—the law of consequences for desire-driven and reactive behavior—predominates. Your actions reap rewards or negative consequences based on your choices. Some aspects of this karma become deposited in your unconscious mind, adding to the karmic issues you must resolve. In this cycle, your choice aims to fulfill your desire, and your reactive emotions fuel negative behavior. You have little internal ability to check this behavior; is it controlled largely through social pressure, or your fear of being punished or imprisoned.

Karmic cycle two – Your human volition begins to curb desire-driven behavior through the moral and ethical standards of the conscience. You begin to shape your personal destiny and begin to say no to certain desires.

Karmic cycle three – You further check behavior and egoic reactions through applying suggestion via intention or your spirit’s wish. At his stage, restraint becomes engrained in your character, and you are able to gain insight into the motivation and defensiveness of the ego, and detect the mind’s subtle attempts to manipulate you into giving into its desires.

Karmic cycle four – A higher octave of will begins to operate through a nucleus of identity to restrain desires and to curb reactive behavior. At this stage, a higher octave of altruistic or compassionate behavior begins to operate through the personality. You begin to express virtues like kindness, goodness, consideration of others’ feelings, prudence, caring for others’ health and welfare, charity to assist others in need, and loving support to others. You become capable of selfless actions; you respond to the needs and suffering of others.

Karmic cycle five – The transpersonal will begins to express the Soul’s purpose through your personality. At this stage, the influence of your desire-driven ego and its unconscious shadow has a decreased effect on your behavior; the Soul’s guidance and discipline directs you in what you must do.

Karmic cycle six – The Divine Will overshadows the transpersonal will, which is turn guides the personality. You become subject to the command of the Divine Will, which expresses as the Holy Yeah, where you are directed to carry out specific tasks; the Holy Nay, where you are forbidden to carry out particular behavior; and the Holy Wait, which postpones something you decide to do to a later, more auspicious time. The higher will overrules your desire-driven and reactive behavior, and Divine Direction governs your life.

Karmic cycle seven – When you reach the stage of Liberation (Jivan Mukta), only the elements of your destiny karma continue to operate—the Lords of Karma execute this type of karma until your predestined time of death. The Divine Will governs the activity of your personality and you become an instrument of Divine Grace. Those who do Bodhisattva projects on the highest Planes of the Bridge Path transmute this form of karma and use it in advanced spiritual work that develops the rays of Mastery for Adi Sat Gurus.

Aspirants and disciples need to identify in which karmic cycles they are currently operating. They will benefit from studying the effects that these higher aspects of conation have on the desire-driven and reactive behavior of the ego.

Failure to check these tendencies of the primary karmic substrate leads to enslavement to desires and the continued necessity to reincarnate to reap the rewards or expiate the sins that desire-driven actions generate.

If disciples make genuine progress on the spiritual Path, they will activate the higher octaves of conation and begin to check these tendencies that bind them to the wheel of karma. Ultimately, they will reach the stages where the Divine Will guides them and they will stop creating new karma—and at the end of their life, they will step off the wheel.

What Spurs Growth?

By George A. Boyd © 2018

Q: What is it that spurs personal growth? Why is it that some people seem to stay where they are in their lives, while others seem to dramatically change, try new things, and reinvent themselves?

A: There seem to be a variety of characteristics that promote change and reinvention. Here are some of them:

  1. You are on fire to change. You are unwilling to accept the status quo any longer.
  2. You have a realization of a vital truth. You can no longer keep doing things the same way after you have had this insight.

  3. You have a clear vision of what you want and a plan to reach it. You believe your plan is doable and achievable. You take constructive action to begin to enact your plan.
  4. You see yourself in your core as perfect and whole. You note a shadow over this vision of yourself—you begin to consciously hold your attention on that darkness to begin to dissolve it and break it up, so your innate perfection can emerge and shine through.
  5. You identify specific issues that hinder or sabotage your path to success and achieving what you want. You process those issues to completion, and you re-choose and re-create a new way of thinking, believing, and acting that yield better results.
  6. You have absolute faith, courage, and conviction. You make a resolute decision that what you want shall be made manifest.
  7. You sense that you are organically growing and developing into a pre-formed pattern that is within you. You feel that you are moving inexorably into this next step of your personal growth.

If you sense this undercurrent of growth within you—in whichever of these forms it takes—open yourself to it, and let it begin to change you. Your fear and your clinging to what is safe will resist this transformation, but if you stop fighting it, you will move into your next step of growth—you will do things that you cannot now believe are possible for you and achieve things that you thought were unattainable. When the inner forces of personal growth summon you, embrace them.

Identification

By George A. Boyd © 2014

A fundamental principle of the mind is identification. It has a major role in personal and spiritual life; it governs what we will become—and when we become that—what we will do, be, and have, once we have attained it.

At the personal level, let us say you want to become a plumber. You imagine, visualize what it will be like to become a plumber. You decide to make that happen. You go to school. You complete your apprenticeship. You become a journeyman plumber. You get your state license.

When this is accomplished, you realize, I am a plumber—and you can now be a plumber in the eyes of the community and the State. Then you can do plumbing professionally. You can have the income that plumbers make, and the satisfaction of serving people in the community.

The same thing is true in the spiritual life. Let us say you are completely blown away by a Yogi Preceptor, and you decide you want to attain that state of consciousness. You imagine what it would be like. You begin the Path to becoming a Yogi Preceptor by taking initiation. You practice a transformative meditation that transforms your cosmic consciousness progressively through the bands of the First Cosmic Initiation. After sustained practice, you break through all barriers, and finally attain the Guru Padam, where you fully become a Yogi Preceptor.

Now you are a Yogi Preceptor. You can do what Yogi Preceptors do: teach, guide, initiate, and counsel others, and embody the goal to them. You can now have what Yogi Preceptors have: spiritual powers, respect and reverence from others, and the ability to assist others to reach this same attainment.

That dream with which you identify, be it a personal goal or a spiritual one, is crucial to your life, because it creates your destiny.

Identify with nothing, and you repose in being, and float though life, monitoring the present moment.

Desire something and dream of attaining it, and you will mobilize your entire mind to assist you become it.

Be careful what you decide is worthy for you to become. Some people dream of being gang members, human traffickers, drug dealers, terrorists, thieves, murderers, rapists, and dictators—and bring evil and suffering to many, when they realize that dream.

Your mind is a dream-fulfilling mechanism. Therefore, dream noble dreams, aspire to greatness, a noble and magnanimous character, to excellence, to goodness, and to become an instrument of love and Grace, and make the world blessed because you are here.

Do not settle for mediocrity. Do not follow the crowd. The genie stands before you and asks, “Oh Master, what dream may I fulfill for you?” Choose well, for what you dream; and that with which are fully identified, you shall become.

New Year’s Process

One of the things I do when each new year begins is that I do a process to help me complete my old year, and set goals for the next. I’ve done this as a webinar, which I’ve recorded and edited for you. Want to listen in and do this for yourself?

Get out a sheet of paper and write down your answers as I ask the questions and do this along with us.
