Taking Theosophical ideas

Change Your Philosophy

Change Your Karma

Sounds like a good deal but there’s a catch,

you may be jumping out of the frying pan into the fire.

You may open your Karmic pipeline and find your

Karmic overdraft being called in a bit too quickly

In this extract from Aphorisms on Karma, W Q Judge suggests that by making fundamental changes in oneself by embracing and practising a new philosophy, you will no longer be a suitable vehicle for the discharge of your current Karmic burden and a new class of Karma will come into play.


“Changes may occur in the instrument during one life so as to make it appropriate for a new class of Karma, and this may take place in two ways:


(a) through intensity of thought and the power of a vow, and


(b) through natural alterations due to complete exhaustion of old causes.”



On the surface this sounds like a good deal but Judge does not actually state that all your Karmic problems will be over. In fact a change in philosophy no matter how profound and sincere can in fact pull some bad stuff.


Karma can be seen a being similar to having extensive investments which one cannot access all at once, while on the other hand having a massive overdraft which you will have to pay off eventually but hopefully not all at once.


It may be that a philosophy which better equips the adherent to cope with adversity is opening a pipeline of difficult Karma thus calling in the Karmic overdraft a bit more quickly than you would hope. Of course if you are really intent on discharging your bad Karma then you may be prepared for this.
