As I have written about prior on Dharma, the world needs a balance of forces so it continues as a stable platform for learning and experience. We might call the world a forum for experiences. Even science has discussed ideas like the “Fine-tuned Universe“, suggesting that the dimensionless constants have very specific values that support the emergence of intelligent life.
If we have acted against what is arising in the past, we may find that area of life blocked or sluggish. This is to prevent us from moving further toward imbalance. For example, if we have abused power, we may find ourselves powerless now.
Or inversely, we may find experiences are arising to help resolve it, perhaps to confront our resistance. This means that as the world moves back toward balance, things may get more eventful. The current time would be a good example.
This process is not personal. It is just the mechanics of action and energy, working to restore balance and sustain the world.
If we can work with that, we’ll find experiences arise to help us become more conscious and to resolve where we’re resisting or grasping. More balance then opens the door to further progress and greater light. While not always easy, this is a much smoother path than trying to fight the force of evolution.
