Karma, the Fear You Feel

"I do not know whether Karma creates the ego or the ego creates Karma." ~Carl Jung, Conversations with C.G. Jung, Page 43.

"I feel very strongly that I am under the influence of things or questions which were left incomplete and unanswered by my parents and grandparents and more distant ancestors. It often seems as if there were an impersonal karma within a family, which is passed on from parents to children. It has always seemed to me that I had to answer questions which fate had posed to my forefathers, and which had not yet been answered, or as if I had to complete, or perhaps continue, things which previous ages had left unfinished." ~Carl Jung; Memories, Dreams, Reflections; Pages 233-234.

I credit Sugar Speakers Toastmasters in Houston for my education in all things karma - maybe a third of the club members were from India and whether they were Hindu, Christian or Muslim, they all believed in karma, dharma and  astrology. Their consensus affirmation: "Do your karma and dharma will take care of itself."

So how are you supposed to know what your karma is? I agree with C.G. Jung's memory: "that I had to answer questions which fate had posed to my forefathers, and which had not yet been answered, or as if I had to complete, or perhaps continue, things which previous ages had left unfinished."  My sister and I were third generation students of Christian Science - labeled a cult group, along with the Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses. If it had been an option I would have preferred Presbyterian. 

I got my answer from Robert Camp's Love Cards giving the karmic fear for each of the 52 cards. The JACK  of Clubs get socked with the Fear of Established Wisdom, which explained everything in my karmic childhood experience - the established wisdom in my neighborhood was either Protestant or Catholic but doing my karma meant spending 20 years: "as if I had to complete, or perhaps continue, things which previous ages had left unfinished."

Nietzsche suggested a plan for “becoming what one is” through the cultivation of instincts and various cognitive faculties, a plan that requires constant struggle with one’s psychological and intellectual inheritances.

Nietzsche drove himself insane looking for his true Self, which in the case of October FIFTEENTH the Day of the WORLD'S STAGE is very difficult for upfront their Ego, the QUEEN  of Spades "Self Mastery" thinks they know what they are doing but their true Self, the SEVEN  of Clubs "Spiritual Knowledge" has the answers but like all Egos they want to keep it a secret. 

The karmic theme for the SEVEN  of Clubs "Spiritual Knowledge" is Agnostic and you would have to say that Nietzsche did a whale of a job sticking to the script.
