The term ‟karma”, which Sanskrit root means ‟action”, is a word that defines the cycle of causes and consequences related to the existence of living beings.
The karma is the sum of all an individual has done, is doing or will do. The results of these actions are called karma-phala. The karma is not a mechanism of punishment or vengeance, but a kind of teaching, supposed to allow individuals to understand how to evolve to a higher state.
The religions that integrate the concepts of reincarnation or rebirth state that the effects of karmic actions affect the different lives of an individual. The laws of the karma make people and beings responsible for their actions and for the consequences they can have on the lives of others.
The law of karma is a central concept of many dharmic religions like Hinduism or Buddhism. All beings are held accountable for their karma and thus are in charge of their escape from the Samsara or cycle of reincarnations.
The earliest references to karma can be found in the Upanishads.
The concept of karma can also be found in Western esoteric movements, like the movement of the Rosicrucians or Theosophy.
The concept of karma can be attractive to Western religious or spiritual persons. The fact that virtue is rewarded and sin is punished is similar to Christian belief and can seem more logical than the concept of eternal damnation. Similarily, the notion of accumulated bad karma is close to the notion of original sin.
Doctor Lefebure, a French physician and scientist, compares the mechanisms of karma to the way the heart functions: ‟Giving is an effort of will, receiving takes place in a passive manner by a process that Hindu philosophy calls karma. The heart functions in a similar way. It does not function as suction and force pump, but only as a force pump. It is the pressure of the blood forced out of the heart that pushes the blood in the rest of the body, provoking its return to the heart by the blood circulation system. Similarly, even if we are not fully conscious of the details of the mechanisms of karma. They will, for sure, bring back to us the consequences of our actions.”
The yoga of good deeds (or karma yoga) is an obvious way to avoid accumulating bad karma. Nevertheless, it has to go together with good intentions. The various Hindhu and Buddhist traditions define meditation and the work on the self as redeeming. These initiatory techniques offer a way to help individuals to escape the cycle of reincarnations by clearing bad karma.
Dr Lefebure, a French physician and scientist, designed a ‟scientifically improved yoga”: Phosphenism.
He invented the Gyrascope, a device based on the praying wheels of the Tibetans but also on the rotary dances of the whirling dervishes. The Gyrascope produces a kind of centrifugation of the soul. In a centrifuge, the heavy elements accumulate on the periphery when, as a reaction, the lighter elements are concentrated in the center of the device. The Gyrascope has a similar action on the thoughts of an individual, pushing back the heaviest and concentrating the most subtle. A powerful effect of cleansing of consciousness is thus produced. This constitutes a means to escape from accumulated bad karma.
Gyroscopic meditation has an action on the deepest layers of the psyche of an individual. On the contrary, psychoanalysis only affects the superficial layers.
Initiatory techniques have nothing to do with psychoanalysis. In fact, the latter only focuses on the pathological. It is much more interesting to bring something more elevated into consciousness. A person in love sees life with ‟rose-tinted glasses” and does not think about his/her problems anymore. This process is a lifesaver. The mind acquires a positive direction, generating a higher state of consciousness.
On the contrary, focusing on a gloomy thought generates a negative state of consciousness. In the end, this negative state of consciousness will turn into a full-fledged depression. Thanks to the phosphenic techniques, you can find the way back to your dreams, a saving and transcendental process.
