So what is karma? You see, the body is the repository of all feelings. So as your Soul came into this form, it did carry with it some of the emotional, energetic aspects that originated in other embodiments. Do you choose to accept the constraints of karma as defined by man? You need not.
Karma has Man-Made Components Too
Karma has many man-made components. Through the beliefs and choices each person elects to adopt through their free will, you can take on various components and accept (or not accept) their constraints. You have a choice. It was not the intention for each one to carry with them the imperfections created in another time. Another lifetime. Nor were those errors to be made right in another time.
Wholeness is Sought
It is the need to restore wholeness now amiss or missing. It is the wholeness that is sought rather than atonement.
It is only when you choose to adopt this belief that these things are then taken on. This is when you decide to carry a formerly held burden forward from (and to) another time. You may do so. In this way, you are exercising your free will by making a choice to do so. Each may elect accordingly. Your Spirit or Soul Essence does have the free will option to accept this through beliefs held. This is a man-made paradigm that you need not accept or embrace.
