A Prisoner of Love

What determines how much karma you

balance in this life?…It is how much love

you inject into what you are doing.

-Saint Germain

Sometimes the force of attraction between two people is irresistible.  At first, there is no one in the world we would rather be with.  The love is there, the thrill of the new relationship is there, and sooner or later we may even decide to marry. We all know the expression “the honeymoon is over.”  That means our karma has hit.  Now the work of the heart must begin.

But why were we so attracted to each other in the first place?  Although we may have much karma to balance with our husband or wife, the initial impact was exhilarating because at the subconscious level we were elated that we had found the person with whom we could balance that karma.  When the honeymoon is over, what keeps us going and giving is our soul knowing that we must get through our karmic obligations before we can move on to the next spiral of life and the projects closest to our heart.  We sense that the faster we submit to the law of our karma–which is the law of love–the faster we and our partner will both be liberated from that karma.

Sometimes when the karma is resolved, the relationship actually dissolves.  There is nothing remaining to hold it together, and people move on because they are called to work on new assignments. Elizabeth Clare Prophet says, “I have found that God often gives us the gift of intense love in the face of intense karma for the healing of old wounds.”   The capacity to love and release of love is something that seems to happen without our consciously willing it.  We feel like the prisoner of this love. Our rational mind may be telling us we should not be loving this person, but the heart loves on.

Elizabeth Clare Prophet has studied this phenomenon in herself, because we really have nowhere else to go but to the laboratory of our own being to learn the lessons of life.  She say, “without my will at all, my heart would become on fire with love for certain people.  I did not create this love. I didn’t start the fire.  God put it in my heart.”

If you roll back the years and think about your high school days, you can recognize when God had placed that kind of love in your heart for someone else.  Just seeing that person would create within you a heart full of love.  You may not have started the love.  The love was there and you can observe it, and then become its prisoner.  In cases like these our karma, seeking resolution, brings us together, and our Higher Self sheds immense love and forgiveness to help us resolve our karma.

It’s as if we are drenching the other person in love.  When enough love has flowed to balance the karma, all of sudden the faucet turns off and we no longer have this intense and compelling feeling of love.  It’s almost unbelievable in contrast to the way we felt before.  I’ve seen this in my own life.  I poured out the love, the karma was balanced, and I walked on.  You never know when the gift you are giving is paying the last farthing of some karma that will liberate you to move on to a higher calling.

We may never know exactly what the past-life episode was that created our karmic debt, but we can usually figure out what we must do now to balance it.  Ask yourself:  What quality or virtue am I being asked to master?  I believe it’s important to work, and work hard, at a marriage.  We are in our relationship for a reason.  It’s tempting to walk away from unpleasant situations, to treat them half-heartedly, or to just bide our time until “the real thing comes along.”  That’s a good way to prolong the resolution of karma–and to make more of it.  If we walk out on our spiritual duty, we will only have to face the same individuals and the same karmic elements again.

When a situation is staring you in the face, look at it as an optimal opportunity, for you never know how long you will have to wait for that opportunity to come around again.  You can choose to melt down the hardness of heart and the karma with the fervent heat of love, or you can choose to part with animosity, which only delays the day of reckoning.  That doesn’t mean you have to remain in a karmic relationship forever.  But you may have to work hard to find the reason for the relationship and then make certain that you balance the karma so that both of you leave the relationship with the feeling of resolution.

How will you know when you have settled the old accounts? When they are settled, you will sense a resolution and an inner peace.  There will no longer be the same intensity binding you together.  In situations like these, we have to go into our heart and, through deep prayer, meditation and soul searching, attune with God to get the right answer.
