Not all karma is personal. There are certain karmic lessons we have to meet that are not directly related to us personally but have more to do with planetary lessons of humanity as a whole. These lessons are called collective karma. Collective karma is impersonal.

Examples of collective karma are wars, famine, droughts, earthquakes, global economic crises, planetary upheavals of any kind.

The proper response to impersonal collective karma is to look at it as an opportunity for Spiritual growth. When humanity as a whole or large numbers of people meet a karmic lesson at the same time, this is actually a blessing in disguise because in such situations massive amounts of karma can be cleared in an instant. So instead of spanning over lifetimes, massive amounts of karma can be dealt with in a very short amount of time, and in that sense collective karma speeds up the awakening of humanity as a whole.

Having this perspective in mind, the Integrated Ascended Master can look at the many challenges that our Spiritual family goes through and see the light behind the lampshade, and the silver lining behind the clouds.

Author's Bio: 

Dr Joshua David Stone was one of the most influential Spiritual teachers, leaders and forerunners of our time. He had a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and was a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Counselor in California, USA.

He served as Official Spokesperson for the Planetary Ascension Movement and made his mark in the Consciousness Community as a prolific writer, authoring the 15-volume Easy to Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path, published in several languages, as well as eight major Ascended Master Training Courses and several comprehensive Training Programs ranging from channeling, the psychology of astrology, the Book of Life of God, to his legendary 2,000 page Counseling Manual, and much, much more.

Today, the I AM University is the one and only Integrated Ascended Master Training Facility in this world. It stands firmly on the foundation of a comprehensive and ever-expanding curriculum which Dr Stone dedicated his life creating.

In 2005, Dr Joshua David Stone passed over to the Spirit world where he continues to Spiritually support the expansion of the I AM University the continuation of which he entrusted into the hands of Gloria Excelsias, his long-term personal assistant and protégé.

Dr Stone is one of the most widely read authors in the New Age Movement and known as the world’s most trusted source for integrated Spiritual development. http://www.iamuniversity.org

Gloria Excelsias is the President of the I AM University, an educational institution with focus on Spiritual and psychological development that was founded by the late Dr Joshua David Stone in 2004 and handed over to her care and leadership in 2005, at Dr Stone’s passing. As Dr Stone’s personal assistant, close friend and protégé, she received ongoing personal training in applied transpersonal psychology and integrated ascension which would prepare her consciousness for her later service work as the University’s President. Having moved the I AM University from California to Salzburg, Austria, her native country, she is now passionately dedicated to running and evolving the I AM University as an inspired writer and speaker, placing thematic priority on Spiritual psychology, the re-integration and updating of ancient occult teachings and the overall unfoldment of human consciousness.
