The Master Jesus said, “As ye sow, so shall ye reap.”

The Kybalion says, “Every cause has its effect; ever effect has its cause; everything happens according to law; chance is but a name for law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the law.”

In Eastern philosophy this is simply called the law of karma.

The most basic explanation of karma is “cause and effect.”

Every action we take, every thought we think, every deed we do is a cause that sets in motion a corresponding effect. If we set “good” causes we will have “good” effects. If we set “bad” causes we will have “bad” effects. This is why there is commonly spoken of there being “good karma” and “bad karma.” Yet, in truth, all karma is neutral.

Karma is the impersonal working out of the law of cause and effect. If we don’t like the experiences in our lives, we simply need to change the causes we set. In that sense, karma is the ultimate teacher, teaching us to “do unto others as we would have others do unto us,” as the Master Jesus said.

We are not victims of a random universe, we are co-creators with God. And as co-creators with God, we are invested with the gift of free will. And this gift of free will is coupled with the law of consequence or karma. So exercising free will comes with a responsibility. We are responsible for the causes we set, and we are responsible for the experiences that as a result are outpictured in our lives.

The Integrated Ascended Master takes full responsibility for every aspect of his life, and he realizes that as a co-creator with God, made in the image and likeness of God, he creates like God … only on a smaller scale.

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.

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.
