Through life our paths are crossing paths with other people. From our parents to our children, from our brothers and sisters to our marriage partners.
According to karmic teachings, we always meet the same souls, only under different masks and different roles. The soul goes through this cycle of physical incarnation because it has some kind of debt or obligation i.e. is not entirely free. Through interaction with others we are given the opportunity to free ourselves from the shackles of karma.
Karma is nothing but the result of the acts we did from the lack of love and lack of connection to its source. Due to lack of love we are consciously or unconsciously hurting others, or they are hurting us.
Now we are in this karma bank to resolve any residual loans, all by the law which is the same for everybody. Karmic records are stored in Akasha (the memory of the universe) that are not available to our conscious mind. But we can learn the lesson for our merging through the feelings and emotions that others provoke in us.
If a person fulfills its goal, they move away from our lives. Some people make us feel unpleasant when we are near them, so it is a bit of a relief to be liberated from them.
However, we shouldn’t ignore these emotions and their presence in us. The origin of them is within us. The mud and the dirt of our suppressed negative experiences and unwanted emotional states of fear and pain are in the depths of our beings. All people that we meet through life are our teachers, whose role is to help us to release from the poisons we are holding to.
