One of the two essential Laws of Creation...
In the West, we tend to ignore and deny the concept of Karma. There is one primary reasons for this: 1. The Law of Karma requires Reincarnation because one's Karma follows one lifetime after lifetime. And if you have been taught that Man only has one lifetime to life... well, both the Law of Karma and that of Reincarnation must be denied in order to perpetuate the misinterpretation of Hebrews 9:27, which was intended to explain that Man is judged after each lifetime. But was misinterpreted to mean that Man only lives once. 1. The concept of the Law of Karma [designed by God] demands that one subtly "open oneself to one's higher experiential resources of understanding"... which is easier to do for those Souls more Enlightened -- and more difficult to do for those Souls less Enlightened. And, you are quite likely unfamiliar with what I just wrote? In order for a person to be open to exposing oneself to the Esoteric [invisible or "unknown"] dimensions of Life, one's sense of fear of the "unknown" in life must be greatly reduced. However...[and unfortunately], this fear of the unknown is normally non-conscious to us. That is, we are not aware of possessing this fear. And so, to be aware of possessing a reduced fear of the unknown... one must have [by some means] overcome or "risen above" these natural and normal fears hidden Within the invisible operations of one's MIND.. The normal "less Enlightened" individual:
Just consider this... Ecclesiastes 3:19... For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one diet, so diet the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. This to me implies that all living things on Earth have Souls. And if the misinterpretation of Hebrews 9:17, is correct... then that means that a Soul only has one lifetime in which to experience the Creation; then the ant [who has a Soul] will only know Creation as an ant. Now, who honestly believes this is what God intended? That God placed a Soul into the Creation to experience being an ant, and that is the end of it...for that Soul?

The normal "less Enlightened" individual:
Since a person has shifted his or her Spiritual Energy from his/her Soul to create the Karma "created," [and it is now held as attachments in that person's MIND], the net effect is the amount of Spiritual Energy at this person's disposal is diminished. This means this person has LESS C'etc available to him/herself. And the less C'etc one has, the less Conscience, Discretion, Knowledge, Acceptance and Empathetic Understanding [these are the VIRTUES of Life], and when one lacks C'etc, one lacks these Virtues.
And my label for this type of person is the term Intelack type person. And the Intelack type person [due to this lack of C'etc] is more vulnerable to the negative desires of his or her MIND. And more easily manipulated by the evil in life.
And now, the more Enlightened individual:
I hope a careful study of these illustrations will suggest that the Evolution of the Soul is a long, and difficult process, and certainly not something rushed through in one lifetime! In the Bible, Christ said to not "judge" one another, or others... and the reason is clear to me that he meant that we are all struggling Souls on this Earth plane. And those who are Enlightened to some degree... are Souls that have EARNED their status by lifetimes of working through difficult Karma. So, for me, I will most certainly respect those I meet who possess C'etc... because I KNOW how hard they have worked to acquire it
And for those in mental health who have no clue what the MIND is, what is there to "respect"?
And since modern mental health -- or what I refer to as "BS&bp" [Behavioral Science and the oxymoron "behavioral psychology"] has long ago ended its search for the MIND and Spiritual dimensions Within Man, the bulk of Americans have no idea that three-fourths of themselves are not capable of being perceived by their brains, or by thinking. So, with education, BS&bp, and science teaching that the only part of Man that matters is what the eyes can see and the brain can think about... the only people not dissuaded from denying the Esoteric [invisible] dimensions of Man are those among us whose Souls are Enlightened, and thus, not afraid of what is hidden Within ourselves. And... of course, science and BS&bp both ignore and teach against what to them either does not exist... or if it exists, it doesn't matter. Is it not, therefore, understandable that most people reading this will not understand what I'm writing, or... just discount it as being the ramblings of some nut?
Unfortunately, even though this fear of the unknown dimensions of oneself is not something most people are aware of possessing [unless one has undergone a course of competent Psychotherapy expressly designed to put one in touch with these mystical dimensions of oneself], this subtle fear is real. And ones MIND uses this fear to prevent one from awakening to this "unknown" [hidden Within oneself]. And further, not being aware of ones MIND and Spiritual dimensions is perfectly normal on this physical plane. It is, in fact, part of the Lord's Plan for how we Souls grow and mature, that only those Souls that have made substantial progress acquiring C'etc may discover --research this Here.
The Law of Karma, in its simplest terms, means: As you sow, so shall you reap. This means that Within your MIND are what I refer to as "MINDLines," and these are used by your MIND to keep an accounting of every thought and action you take, and every emotional reaction of every action taken against you. These are also kept on the Astral region of Creation in what is know my mystics as the "Akashic Record"... or a public record available to anyone who might want to read it. And yes, this is most disturbing to most people when they first hear about it. Only higher regions, the concept of privacy is... apparently not thought of as it is on this plane?
In a book by Evans, Richard I. B.F. Skinner:The Man and His Ideas. New York: E.P. Dutton & Co.,1968, Skinner is quoted as saying this:
"A child is influenced and changed as a biological entity by things that happen to him, but the notion that somehow or other the child of our past is still contained within us is a form of animism which serves no useful purpose in explaining present behavior."
The Soul incarnates into a new body, and develops a new brain, psychology, and personality for every new life it experiences.... and normally, we retain precious little memory of our immediate past life, or any of our past lifetimes for that matter. This is just the way Life and the Creation is structured. It is part of God's Plan. Only when a Soul has ascended a great many rungs of the Ladder of Life does it begin to subtly awaken to the invisible Truths of Life. We must be thankful to God that none of us can get ahead of ourselves. I mean by this... ones Soul designs its own Fate Karma prior to entering this physical plane for another lifetime. And that Fate Karma confines us to how much damage we do to ourselves, and to the world. And this is the Law of Karma as designed by God for the administration of all Souls in Creation.
