St Germain on Karma
‘Balancing our debts to life.’
“One of the major causes of recalcitrance, arrogance, wilful wrongdoing, disobedience, rebellion and stubbornness is the vain hope of individual attainment without individual effort or of personal salvation without personal sacrifice. Mankind do not relish the idea of painstakingly withdrawing every thread and snarl they have placed in the garment of life or of attaining heaven by honest application.” – St. Germain (Saint Germain on Alchemy. Formulas for Self-transformation, p.94-95).

St. Germain explains that forgiveness is included in the Great Law in order that souls may be “given the opportunity for greater spiritual progress.” And, “those who have been forgiven much can love much.” (Luke 7:47). They learn the value of gratitude for their eternal, divine heritage. The soul still needs to “balance the misused energies,” however:
”The balancing of wrongs done to every part of life, including the self, must be accomplished in full with cosmic precision; hence every jot and tittle of the law must be fulfilled either here or hereafter. This process need not be a fearful looking for of judgement, but it should preferably be a happy expectation of opportunity for service to life and the freeing of Life’s imprisoned splendour...
One of the major causes of recalcitrance, arrogance, wilful wrongdoing, disobedience, rebellion and stubbornness is the vain hope of individual attainment without individual effort or of personal salvation without personal sacrifice. Mankind do not relish the idea of painstakingly withdrawing every thread and snarl that they have placed in the garment of life or of attaining heaven by honest application. Yet, they must one day face this truth themselves. Therefore, the present, when truth and justice of opportunity are at hand, is the right and accepted time...
The desire to find a scapegoat for one’s sins in a world teacher or saviour is not in keeping with the cosmic principles undergirding the law of the atonement...
For many have suffered in the astral world after the change called death, and when they came before the Lords of Karma to give an accounting for their lives, they were found wanting. Unfortunately, this may have been only because while on earth they accepted false religious doctrine and, in their misguided state, failed to do well in the time allotted to them. Then came to pass the words God spake to Adam’s son, ‘Sin lieth at the door’ (Genesis 4:7) – that is to say, the record of the misuse of God’s energy is at hand: render an accounting...
The climax or initiation of the ascension can and will come to all, even to little children, when they are ready for it – when at least 51 per cent of their karma has been balanced (this means that 51 per cent of all the energy ever given to their use has been transmuted and put to constructive purpose) and their hearts are just toward God and man, aspiring to rise into the never-failing light of God’s eternally ascending Presence.
When this gift is given to anyone by his own I AM Presence and the Karmic Board, the appearance of age drops from him as swiftly as a smile can raise the lips, and the magnetism and energy of that one becomes the unlimited power of God surging through his being. The dross of the physical, the weariness of the emotional body, tired of hatred and its monstrous creations, the ceaseless rote of the mental body – all drop away and are replaced in perfect ease by their divine counterparts.
The feelings become charged by the love of God and the angels. The mind is the diamond-shining mind of God – omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent. The total being is inspired and aspiring!
Thus that which once hopefully descended now ascends back into the Light from whence it came. One with the company of angels and the nature and friendship of the Ascended Masters and in fellowship with the august fraternity of the Great White Brotherhood, each such one, by the divine merit within, attains the fullness of all that God would ever bestow upon each son without respect of any man’s person, but in joyful acknowledgement of man’s victory: Thou are my beloved Son; this day have I begotten thee! (Psalms 2:7).”
