Karma and Ascension Part 1: Karma is for Our Education
One of the more difficult topics to deal with, I find, is karma. Long-time readers will know that I shy away from examining karma because it seems impossible from a Third-Dimensional perspective to know what’s actually occurring.
Yet karma and Ascension is a topic that needs to be looked at and so I do so in a series of articles here.
Many people consider karma to be punishment for “sins.” We get what we deserve. We get what’s coming to us, and so on. We often say “I’ll fix you” or “I’ll show you a lesson” and we have in mind simple vengeance. Viewed from this perspective, karma becomes God’s vengeance on humans.
My understanding is that karma is a method of teaching. What does it teach? Well, behavior that more and more nearly approaches the Divine. After all, the purpose of life, as far as I know it, is to know our true nature or essence, to know ourselves as God – or, if that offends you, as a child of God or a spark of God.
In my view, that purpose has been given us by the Creator so that the purpose of creating life itself – that God should meet God in a moment of enlightenment – can be achieved. We’re tasked with uncovering our true identity so that God can meet God in a moment of enlightenment – our enlightenment.
Karma is one of the principal means of teaching us how to be God. To be God is to know God, many sages say. When we harm another, karma sees that we are treated in a similar way so that we can feel what the situation is like. We usually don’t like it and stop harmful behavior. When we treat others compassionately, the law sees to it that the same treatment is extended to us. In both cases, karma teaches us.
If I’m correct, then we can imagine that the reason we’re told that a lot of karma stops when we ascend to the Fifth Dimension is that that ascent will enlighten and educate us to such a degree that many unlearned lessons will now be learned.
Moreover, we’re also told that much residual karma will be forgiven by the Law of Grace. When a mass Ascension occurs, the karma that might have been left over does not accompany us. We start afresh, as it were. But viewed from another perspective, we learn our lessons from the ascent itself and so our “lesson curriculum” is, so to speak, satisfied.
Let’s listen to the galactics, ceslestials and ascended masters discuss the subject to see if we’ve understood the matter so far.
Karma is for Our Education, not Our Punishment
The Creator granted us freewill and the higher beings we deal with honor that fact, as SaLuSa explains:
The law of karma is often called the law of cause and effect because whatever we put out is brought back to us again, as Archangel Michael explains.
Karma is valuable, Ker-on of Venus says, because it “places people in situations for [experiences] that will further their understanding and uplift them.” (3) SaLuSa says that “each experience is considered as bringing a lesson for you.” (4) In the scheme of things, “every experience adds to your total consciousness, accumulated through all of your lifetimes.” (5)
We are not punished for our “sins,” SaLuSa tells us, but asked to endure the same situations that we’ve brought to others for their educational value.
He adds that “any harm caused to others has to be understood and repaid in some way, and that is called Karma. It is not punishment, but self-realization of what it is to be responsible for your actions, thoughts and deeds.” (7)
He tells us that “karma can be viewed as either negative or positive.” (8) It teaches us how to be more godlike and as such could be seen as a great blessing. Or it could be seen negatively as punishment. He observes:
Our mistreatment of each other Matthew calls “the karmic ping-pong of man’s inhumanity to his fellow man.” (11) It goes on down the ages, very few people actually being aware of karma and learning the lessons it conveys.
Karmic lessons that are not learned in one lifetime are repeated in others until the lessons are learned, Matthew tells us.
SaLuSa makes the same point: “Karma is often repeated because lessons are not learnt, and they will continue to confront you until you do.” (13) In light of this situation, he advises us to “make sure you do not repeat the same mistakes again, as you can be sure you will be tested again.” (14)
I haven’t very often seen karma discussed as keeping us on the path that leads back to God, but SaLuSa does mention it here: “The karma resulting from each life time is twofold, and firstly keeps you on the path back to the Light, whilst ensuring that you learn from your mistakes.” (15)
We usually think that karma only decides the evolutionary path of individuals but Matthew tells his mother that it determines the path of planets too.
Many of us don’t know about karma. Many have heard of it but give it little weight or thought. Many understand karma but inaccurately. Very few indeed understand how karma truly operates and of those fewer still put their knowledge to good use.
The law of karma assists us to return to God knowing our true nature by bringing the same actions to us that we mete out to others. It doesn’t reflect God’s lack of caring but it does reflect our own lack of understanding. But as we’ll find in the next article, all of this is about to change for those of us who’ve chosen Ascension and assimilated sufficient light to ascend.

Karma and Ascension – Part 2 – Karma and the Law of Grace
This is the Last Lifetime to Learn Karmic Lessons
According to my understanding, the need to clear our karma up to the time of Ascension is not a reflection of an arbitrary strictness in morality. Ascension depends on our ability to accept and assimilate light so that we can survive in the Fifth Dimension’s rarified environment. And the balance achieved by learning the lessons of karma and addressing the polarization in our character is one of the factors that allows us to assimilate light.
Matthew Ward says that many people “during these waning days of duality” are “rushing to complete third density karmic experiences and attain the balance necessary for soul evolvement.” (1)
SaLuSa sees “this particular life” before Ascension as “so important to you, as it is the opportunity to … clear any remaining karma.” (2) He explains that “in these end times there are … many souls who are anxious to clear their karma, and have packed their life full of experiences.” (3) He tells us that “for many it is therefore a hectic time, particularly at a personal level.” (4)
He explains that “you can take on as much karma as you desire and clearly the quicker you can set it aside the quicker your spiritual progress.” (5) Although karma “is normally carried forward and comes about in a future lifetime,” he tells us that “karma can be cleared within the same life that it took place.” (6)
In fact SaLuSa says that in this lifetime we’ll see more “instant karma” than we ever have:
As a result of our expanded state, SaLuSa advises us to “be careful now as to what you think, because as your creative powers increase you may not always wish for the outcome” (8) We
might wonder what comes up to be cleared. SaLuSa explains that “what comes up will be anything that cannot be carried by you into the higher vibrations.” (9)
All Karma will be Released upon Ascension
After we have released as much karma as we can, if we are sincerely intending to ascend, God, through the Law of Grace, will relieve us of our remaining karma, our sources say. Let’s hear their explanation of how this last remaining period of the end times is likely to proceed.
“For most of you,” SaLuSa explains, “your karma … is coming to a close, as you have worked out many weaknesses through so many different lives.”(10) The Pleiadian High Council through Lauren Gorgo tell us that Ascension will allow us to “fully release from the realms of karmic creation.” (11) “All [will] celebrate this wonderful release from the treadmill of karma,” Saul predicts. (12)
Many situations like Earth changes or regional wars are here to help us clear our karma, SaLuSa explains.
Often we wonder why we’re called upon to suffer and think that God does not love us. SaLuSa responds:
On another occasion, he returned to this question.
I imagine that no circumstances trouble us more than to watch other people suffer, but the galactics often say that these situations are happening for karmic clearing.
“You ask why we do not come to your aid now [in Somalia's famine] but please remember
that all souls presently involved in the suffering, have at a higher level already accepted it as part of their experiences.
Matthew explains why so much trauma is occurring in the Middle East. Because that situation is prominent and important, let’s listen to Matthew’s case at length.
Not only conditions in distant countries but also conditions closer to home exist to allow people the opportunity to learn their last lessons in Third Density, Matthew tells us.
“Please remember that some of what you see that is worrisome, even abhorrent to society—violence in any form; theft; drugged children and adults, whether by prescription or “illegally”; unjust laws and fraudulent convictions; growing numbers of homeless and unemployed; torture; school dropouts—is “perpetrators” and “victims” completing karmic lessons so they never again have to experience third density lifetimes.” (19)
We’re therefore asked not to judge situations without knowing the full story. He tells us:
SaLuSa tells us that, after we’ve done all we can, we’ll be released from our remaining karma by the Law of Grace.
SaLuSa explains that turning to the Light invokes the Law of Grace.
Moreover, the Law of Grace “will come into being more so as you approach the end time,” SaLuSa explains. (24) So we can expect the law to impact us increasingly as we near the date of Ascension.
Thus this is the last lifetime in which to clear our karma and realize the tranquillity and balance that comes from moving away from polarization and resting in the center. It isn’t something that’s asked of us arbitrarily but a requirement of creating the ability to assimilate the needed light to survive in Fifth Dimensionality. Many of the appalling circumstances that exist at the moment are here to give people the opportunity to complete their karmic balancing. If we’re on the borderline and committed to ascend, what we cannot clear will be forgiven us by the Law of Grace.
(To be continued.)

Karma and Ascension – Part 3 – Karma in the Golden Age
Many Lightworkers have Completed Sufficient Karmic Lessons to Ascend
SaLuSa reminds us that we have played both side of the drama of duality and asks us to take the last karmic lessons in our stride before ascending.
He explains to us that Ascension has been given to us as a way out of needless suffering.
As far back as November of 2011, the Pleiadian High Council told us we were releasing our deepest vasanas or karmic patterns.
Consequently we’re now able to see the situations that came up for their educational value rather than as upsets or punishments.
While some lightworkers have completed their karmic lessons, help is offered to those who are still struggling, SaLuSa tells us.
Matthew makes the distinction that no one can clear another’s karma but some cellular patterns can be cleared if the circumstances are right.
Those who have “already reached [a] stage” of clearance and completion, SaLuSa says, are invited to “devote yourself to working for the Light.” (7)
Karma in the Golden Age
According to SaLuSa, nothing will exist in the Fifth Dimension that will cause us to incur the heavy karma associated with Third Dimensionality again.
Ag-Agria describes how life will be for us when we ascend. We’ll be so peaceful and harmonious that we won’t want to live out of accord with the law.
SaLuSa also summarizes for us the life we can expect when we’ve balanced our karma and assimilated enough light to advance into the higher realms.
And Saul, after telling us that we’ll be stepping off “the treadmill of karma,” adds his word-picture of the life we’ll lead in the new Golden Age.
So, many of us are either clearing the last vestiges of karma or have finished clearing our karma and are now ready to assist others still struggling. Following Ascension, we pass into a life that will be comparatively free of karma. We’ll be naturally inclined to take up a lifestyle that respects the law and does not invite karma. Heaven on Earth – boundless joy, love, and renewal – will all be ours in a new Golden Age.
Overall, then, we can see that we as a collective are living often hectic lives because we’re finishing the last vestiges of our karma that we an manage. What karma is left over will be forgiven by the Law of Grace.
Once we ascend, although the universal laws will still apply to us, we’ll live under circumstances that won’t invite the heavy karma of 3D and we won’t be inclined to live in violation of the universal laws, in ways that create karma. Our lives will be easeful and joyous in the new Gold Age that’s about to dawn.
