You may have read or heard the legend of Issac Newton sitting under an apple tree and how he was inspired to develop the law of gravity after an apple fell and hit him on the head. Sometime, these “apples” come our way too in life and hit us on the head as a way of getting our attention. Why is this?
In physics, the law of gravity can be thought of as an invisible force that pulls objects toward each other. Earth's gravity is what keeps us on the ground and makes things fall.
There is also a spiritual law which in one sense keeps us on the ground and can cause us to fall. It is called the law of karma. Karma can be understood as thoughts, feelings, or actions in this or in a previous life which creates the force that pulls us back to earth to resolve things personally or with others. Note: Sometimes, people think of karma only as “bad” – something they did wrong or which was done to them. However, we also have unlimited opportunity to make good karma! More on this in a later blog.
Can we overcome our “bad” karma, break away from gravity and truly be free? The answer is yes!
We know a rocket employs fire and great force before breaking free from the Earth’s gravity. Once accomplished, the rocket is free of earthly pull and can begin to navigate the entire universe.
As more and more of us begin to understand and put the violet flame into practice to balance karma, we too will be free of the pull of our karma here on earth and ready to live in, explore and experience the entire spiritual universe!
Sir Issac Newton made far-reaching contributions in the study of gravity, optics, color, the speed of sound and dedicated much of his time to the study of alchemy. He once said: “Are not rays of light very small bodies emitted from shining substances?” Newton was well ahead of his time and would have been fascinated by the science and the spirituality of the violet flame!
