As I travel further and further on the road of awakening, the same question comes to my mind. I am surrounded by loved ones who say “Murderers should be killed. Rapists should be killed. Death penalty!” What is the enlightened way to go about this? I need guidance on this subject… thank you
If everyone understood the fundamentals behind the truth of karma we wouldn’t have such a high act of crime and violence in this world People would realize that for every ill act you do you will receive the threefold law of what you reap is what you sow. It comes back three times the force upon you originally wished it in the first place. Every action you produce into the world comes back to you in whatever way you expressed it. Everything that happens to you is a result of your own actions.
i don’t believe anyone deserves the death penalty, to wish death upon anyone regardless of what has happened or what they have done, is to move in respect with the old paradigm of 3rd dimensional thinking of duality. It is still wishing hatred and violence upon them. honestly i just read a tumblr post that pretty much sums up my thoughts on the death penalty. “We kill people who kill people because killing people is wrong”
This is one of the many reasons i try very hard not to watch or let any of the news media influence me because it is mostly built on lies and fear tactics. There is no reason to worry with anxieties about such and such killed someone because through the workings of karma, all debts are paid off and there is no reason for us to even fret about them. Everything moves through the flux, like attracts like, what you reflect is what you project into your life and what vibration you give off is what you receive. So for someone who does evil deeds in any respect will eventually get their own payback for whatever they did. It is not a matter of ‘wishing’ or igniting them as if ‘beckoning karma to get them back because that is just as bad as wishing death, harm, injury, etc. on a person. The power is in the thought, so we must be careful with what words we wish to channel and create within our external reality. Therefore it is just better to be and stay away from forces that don’t influence your own thoughts. Just be in the now without worry and regret just be in the present where you are always eternally at peace.
I hope this helps explain it better for you
