Karma: Cancel Culture and the Last Judgement (Maelinhon)
Karma. This word is now used to plug practically every ideological hole, as if it is supposed to explain something. And everyone nods with intelligent faces. Oh, well, karma, then it makes sense. Everybody’s relationships are karmic, and people are karmic, and they get slapped karmically too, they clean it for some reason, and wherever you spit – this fancy word blows everywhere. People have even invented such an ugly expression like Instant Karma, using it in any storyline like “I kicked a trash can, and the trash can turned over and kicked me in the ass”. Oooh, evil karma!
And I have a growing feeling that this word is akin to Pavarotti from the old joke: he sings very badly because he heard his neighbour perform it. That is, there is some kind of blurred vision that karma is some kind of debt… to someone… and it will be realised then by hitting the head (no). People use it but don’t think – what does karma even mean, how does it emerge and how does it work? Can you really see your abuser catching up with a karmic slipper? Spoiler alert: no. Can it be cleaned or gained? Now, let’s talk about karma and our beloved Shani. No matter how much you talk about him, it’s still not enough.
I would start suddenly with psychology. There is one enormous bug in human thinking that greatly interferes with people’s lives. Perhaps there is a special term for it, I do not know, but I am talking about “finite thinking,” that is, about perceiving the world only here and now, when every phenomenon is perceived as “forever”. So you sit down to count all your money, and you involuntarily think – how much is enough for me? So, as if you now have to survive on this amount forever, there will be no more new money. Do you know the feeling? You buy a house with the subconscious thought “for life”. You get a job with about the same idea. There are tons of examples! People hate to think that they have no control over shit in this life, so change (especially sudden change) terrifies them to the point of wetting their underpants. Tomorrow you can lose all your money, or run away from home, or generally face the fact that there is and will be no “forever”: in a year you can wake up in a different country and under a different name. And Saturn orbited your yesterday’s “forever”, laughing loudly.
The psyche does not like changes, it’s a fact. That’s why it tries to pound in to the brain every phenomenon in an “eternal” format: this is now with us forever. Forever. For all eternity. It is more peaceful and pleasant to think this way, it is much easier to make plans. But this also creates huge problems of perception of changes and new things, and it seems to be a disaster for “forever-people”.
What karma has to do with it? It has to do with the fact that its pop interpretation, especially shitted all over by monotheistic patterns, grows out of this. People perceive karma as a kind of end point of the process and a terrible judgement with a verdict of “forever”. You have sinned – you are punished! Some John is a freak, look what he has done, it means karma will get him and he will suffer forever! FOREVER! This strongly echoes the stories about the last judgement, which will define a measure of carrots and sticks for everyone FOREVER. Billions of years will pass, and John will continue to suffer. Some Peter, on the other hand, will sit in paradise for billions of years because he took old ladies across the street. We don’t have an exact description of heaven (lol), but we do have a certain conviction of that “forever” and a bullet point at the end of the verdict.
I tell you: bullshit. All processes in this world and other worlds are in constant motion, where there is no statics at all. We have changes going on all the time. Simply put, every month we have a slightly different world, people are different, goals change, probability lines change globally many times a year, and every phenomenon has a beginning and an end, and we are not talking about billions of years. There are no phenomena that are “forever,” they can be “long-term,” but even that is a very relative concept. For how long is that? A year? Ten years? A million years? Two million? But they too will come to an end, there are no infinite numbers, so there is a limit. And then what is beyond that line of this imaginary forever…?
Cancel Culture and Credits
This is why I find the current moronic fashion of “cancelling” something undesirable terribly amusing. A person, a phenomenon, a language, a country, etc. If nothing is everlasting and permanent, then any decision should be based on factors of change and giving a chance for this very change. That is, cancelling a priori includes an “if,” otherwise there is no sense in it. Not “I punished you, and now you will ALWAYS sit here punished, until the end of time you will sit in this shit, you bastard!” That’s not how the world works. It will take a year or ten years, but you still have to get the problem out into the light, deal with it, revise it… You can do it right away. For example, “I won’t talk to Peter until he fulfils his promise.” And not “I will not talk to Peter forever now”. Let him sit punished by my silence. Forever! The sun will go out, the galaxy will collapse into a singularity, trillions of years will pass, and I still won’t talk to Peter! This wildness is exactly what grows out of understanding things as “forever.” But stigmatising someone or something “without right of appeal” can lead to huge problems, because by not giving the object a chance to correct itself, we simply hide the problem like a huge boil. And one day it will burst, and exactly in our faces.
Put yourself in the place of the one who was bad and punished. He is FOREVER cut out of life, out of activity, out of his family, etc. And what should he do? If there are no options to improve, if they are not even given to him. So there is only one option: sit punished, just sit punished and suffer. Always. Such decisions give birth to very, very bad people and very awful things in the end… For something to be eliminated from life, it has to be as smooth as the crinkles of the closed-mouth, that is, with no problems and no triggers. Because hiding a bucket of shit behind a curtain won’t solve the stink problem, just that bucket won’t be visible now. Even if you hide it “forever.” So any cancel culture is a time bomb. The bucket will still have to be taken out sooner or later, only after a long time the stench will become absolutely unbearable.
Let’s move on to karma. The difference between real karma and the popish term is that real karma always gives you this chance to undo the damage you’ve done, even encourages you to undo it! Karma is not a last judgement with a final verdict of “forever” and it is generally aimed at correction, not punishment. This mechanism does not have the task of mortifying a scoundrel for any sins at all. The first and most important thing to understand about karma is that it is a process, not a final verdict. It is constantly changing, not permanently sending you to a punishment cell.
Karma can be compared to the parameters of a player in a computer game: from the beginning of the game you have 50 health units, 3 lives, 164 bullets and karma, which has a scale from minus to plus. And while you are running through life, solving your tasks, these parameters are constantly jumping. That is, you were born with +347, you die with -90. And vice versa, you were born with a bottom at -600, and you die with +400. It can be worked out, built up, changed and is not static either for people or for countries. How and where to run is your personal decision.
The second important aspect: karma works ONLY after death and transition to a new life. Why so? Because it is a mechanical process of summing up the results of life and building a new natal chart based on its results. Simply put, the database represented by Saturn counts your “points” after death and if they are good, you get a good natal chart in your new life, with a great health resource, loving family, etc. That is, karma lays the GROUNDWORK for your new birth, it does not affect you here and now. Your “points” form the amount of ammo and lives in 50+ years. In the second level, you will be born with the set you earned in the first.
Karma is WHY you were born in this family, in this country, with such data, such diseases and such nose, etc. Further on karma does not affect you in any way, there is only your will and your decisions as to how to swim further with this set. You play the game yourself. Shani wrote the verdict, some John was reborn and for his negative balance he was born in a depressed province, in the form of some girl Dorothy, who looks like a crocodile and has alcoholic parents. This Dorothy can swim up, but her “swimming-up” costs will be a million times higher than those of a girl from the capital with a pretty face, because Dorothy comes out from the minus point. This is karma, which demands your resource in payment. That is, karma has laid down the starting conditions of life, then you go by yourself and have a new quest to set points. You have a diseased heart and crooked teeth because of karma, all other problems are simply a consequence of your laziness, fear, stupidity, etc. Likewise, good looks, good health, good luck and loving parents are karma, but a high position or talent to play the piano is a personal achievement.
What is bad
How do you make and lose points? A lot of people in this topic ask questions like “Why am I being so fucked up?! I haven’t done anything wrong to anyone!” Which brings us to two ideas: again, people are only looking at the framework of now and people don’t understand what this “done wrong” is. For some reason it’s drawn to them roughly as “I’ve never stolen anything or killed anyone,” but after all, the karmic mechanics, let me remind you, only work after death. You won’t even remember if you killed somebody or not, hey, it has cycles of 100 years…
Let’s talk about what exactly Shani considers “good and bad”. And Shani operates with two concepts: resource and time.
That’s all, it simply has no other columns in the accounting, which means that we can do bad or good either within the resource or within the time. It can be given away, presented, taken away, divided… And the spectrum there is huge. Get away from theft and murder! Think about this: children. Self-righteous parents, realising some of their desires and fantasies, forcing the child to a class, or school, or Bosch forbid – profession. The child is unhappy there, he wants to do something else, but he is dragged by the ear where he doesn’t want to go and thinks he doesn’t need it. What is he wasting? That’s right, his time and his resources! This child (or adult) WOULD live a different life, be happy, but instead he is dragging for years to a hateful job imposed by daddy. These are the years that daddy is going to lose, as well as the resources he wasted.
It is possible to take someone else’s place. You can give birth to an unwanted child who will suffer all his life, thinking that he is to blame for something. You can force your will, say, by marrying someone you didn’t want. You can cripple someone on a psychological level and they will get depression and pain for long years, which = a resource. And no matter how good your intentions are, if you end up making someone unhappy, you are the one who will have to work off their resources and time.
Did you mean well? Doesn’t matter anymore, the only question that will be asked is: did that dimuth suffer because of you? Did he lose time, energy, money, youth, happiness? If yes, then you’re in the negative balance. This is how karmic mechanics work, so, for example, abortion doesn’t wind up karma (the unit is not aware of itself and its losses), but torturing a cat or breaking a child’s psyche does. It takes an element of conscious suffering to set the karmic bill in motion. If you stole something, but no one suffered or lost a resource from it, you’re welcome. Of course, it’s better not to do that, but that’s how it works in terms of karmic logic.
The bad news: it’s not just about people. You can, say, save money on garbage disposal or cleaning up waste from your business, pollute nature and get -4000 for the suffering of animals, birds and the ecosystem. They also have time and a resource of life, so karma affects them. Think in the format of Resource and Time and you can immediately improve your situation and will not create debts.
Karmic connections and Children
The third important aspect that has been bubbling over in my mind is karmic people. Let me spell it out for you. Karma lays down your natal chart and the position of the planets in your “base”, i.e. it determines your appearance, your health, your resources, your good fortune in various areas and the configuration of your psyche. You are, say, not a very attractive but charismatic person with good finances and a successful marriage, but asshole parents and a tendency to depression. Here is your “karmic snapshot,” that set of points that were realised at birth. On a subtle level, this configuration kind of attracts people to you who are somehow related to such parameters, it’s like they go for the smell. You smell of violets – violet lovers come to you, and for some reason you are waiting for steak lovers.
That is, if you are concerned about money – people with related interests and problems will come to you more, if you are afraid of violence – you will pull violent people to you, and so on. You smell it. Feel the logic? Karma has laid the base –> The base generates mental features –> The mental features attract people to you who have something to do with the problems and point you to them. If you’re surrounded by only psychos, it only shows that your configuration attracts that type of person. If you change your mindset, work through your phobias and complexes, your set will change as well. There is no “I always meet only assholes” and there can’t be, there’s just a lack of acceptance of the changes that these assholes signal to you.
People think that those they meet are either good, or bad, or “important”. But really, every person in your path is karmic. Because karma is WHY you meet them, and people themselves are totally unimportant.
And here you also have a choice – to bypass them, or to get involved in a relationship, or to use them for something.
Children are a separate hell in this system, because it’s easier to fulfil karmic duty through them. So if you have children, they will grab all your points at once and drag them to you in a big smelly bag prematurely. I think you’ve grasped the logic by now. If you’re at a severe deficit, a sick/problem child will be born and you will have to pour x20 of a normal resource into them. If you don’t have a child, karma will be fulfilled in the normal way. Accordingly, parents and children are karmic to each other and deserve each other. Correspondingly, they can zero out their debts through each other and build up an advantage.
Karma of the Countries and Gods
In connection with the geopolitical crap that is going on right now, very often there are references to the karma of countries, like when will “these freaks” get what they deserve? Explanation. Countries, nations and higher beings are also subject to karmic mechanics, the only difference is that the higher ones are ruled by Pluto, not Saturn, and do not need to die to realise their karma. The country (or entity) realises karma after each stage of personal transformation. Lived – A mess started – Suffered – Had an experience for himself – Changed – Karma began to be realised. Because cardinal change and death are the same metaphysical process of rebirth, and the country and the living things need to “die a little bit” to start a new stage of life. Relatively speaking, nations turn on karma +- along with revolutions and turns to other courses. And entities turn on their personal changes. It doesn’t happen quickly, but once every 100 years or so. So yes, the country gets what it deserves, but with a delay of tens or hundreds of years. And if some country arranges genocide to another country, it will get the payback in 150 years at best, when the transformation and the balance of points goes to work at a new stage.
Just in case, I would like to clarify that we consider territories of the people’s mental field and territory as a country, not the actual borders.
There is a curious nuance here: tyrants and dictators come strictly from Pluto, to accelerate the process of transformation and personal growth. Therefore, dictators have karma working along slightly different lines: they are simply a tool to bring the people/country to their knees so that they explode, rebel, and transform into a new stage. They’re not the freaks themselves, who, out of the blue, start torturing people. Domakha is cruel, but Domakha only wants universal purity and justice. And for the sake of it, it selects especially badass rulers, so that the people will see and realise “how not to do it”.
Where to run
The good news in all this is that Shani is a sweetheart *:) It’s not a psycho, a sadist or an executioner, it’s a strict accountant. Domaha (Pluto) is an even bigger cutie, I don’t understand why both are so disliked. And if they are cute and very fair and honest guys, they have no interest in making you suffer at all. Moreover, they are very interested in you living a better and happier life. Hence, you are always given the opportunity to correct mistakes and make an advantage.
Karma is a debt, a loan of time and resource, taken from a very serious office (Saturn is a serious office). Therefore no popsy cleaning makes sense here, although this nonsense about “cleaning up karma” is heard from every pore. You can clean dirt, and debts are the absence of something, not the presence of dirt. If you have taken it – give it back; if you have taken advantage of it – make up for it; if you have offended someone – apologise and make amends.
There are many ways to make amends, but it’s always about giving time and resources to others. If you pick up trash, volunteer in any field, clean and wash something, care for the sick and elderly and animals – this is a free-will expenditure of your time. Which means it goes to your advantage. Since all debts and payoffs go straight through Saturn, you don’t necessarily need to know who exactly you are in debt to or have contact with. And it is not always possible. That is why the basis of work with karma is the same time and resource, but given to other beings. You always make an advantage when someone is sincerely glad that he/she met you, that you helped him/her, comforted him/her, solved his/her problem. In short, you spent something to make the other person’s life a little easier and brighter. Again, it doesn’t have to be a person, you can save a cat or a bird from starvation. Similar to suffering, conscious joy and gratitude build up the positives at a tremendous rate. In any uncertain situation, take your bags and go pick up trash in the woods or the park – it’s an ideal way to work off the negative.
To sum it all up, it’s pretty simple, prosaic, and has been sounded a million times. Don’t do to others what you wouldn’t want to do to yourself and mind your own stuff first. Don’t make others suffer, don’t take away other people’s things, don’t be cruel to others, don’t lie to them or injure them physically or mentally, regardless of motivation. It is better to pass by someone in need than to forcefully impose “goodness” on them in your interpretation. If you can, help, give, do and spend some time on those in need. No particular problem for normal dimuths this list will cause. If it does, it’s a reason to think about correcting your worldview.
