BTW Xanth when I first heard of this I knew at that moment that this was what I wanted to do. There was no hesitation. I knew that I could help my family far more than me living out the rest of my life. So yeah I didn't have to think it through. I'm only posting here to get the thoughts of astral projectors on this, cause I look up to yous.  grin

Just remember that your "Intellect" has no bearing on that decision.  Everything you just talked about above, usually happens in LESS than a split second of thought.  Right?

It's like when you see a little old lady reach for a door and begin to struggle... you lunge into action and help her open the door.
Now the question is, did you not think about that and simply lunge or was there a brief second where you thought about helping, yet still did?

That's why this stuff is difficult to judge... if you bring you intellect into such decisions, the it's usually done for the wrong reason.

The rule of thumb I adhere to is if you have to think about something (however long that thought is, could be microseconds), then it's not a self-less act.

Do you kind of understand what I'm trying to say?  It's something that's hard to quantify in a typed discussion.

Perhaps I should try a Skype discussion one day.  LoL
Modern day martyr or crazy idea that can't possibly help?

I am considering this option for myself. My family lives at the poverty to low middle class income level. Would taking out a high life insurance policy for my family for 10 million dollars then committing a peaceful suicide in 2 years later once the suicide clause exuding suicide in the insurance policy expires, would that count for a good karma? It would be like dying a martyr wouldn't it? That is dying for the sake of others that they might have life more abundantly. A very noble altruistic thing to do wouldn't it be? It would be totally legal. IMO it would be good karma as long as it was a peaceful death and done selfishly, and if I lived a good part of their life, and did most all that I could while here. Which is about where I am at.  smiley

My biggest intent would be to help balance out my past negative actions. But I also want to do it to see them succeed and I feel like this would be a good idea cause it would clearly bring them and their children out of poverty. The only thing I would expect in return is to feel like I did my best to fix the problems I have caused through my ignorant actions of the past. And naturally with that I hope to have a better incarnation next time. For me it's very important that I try to fix the wrongs of my past. But of course I want to see them succeed too. Cause in my mind if I don't do this they will suffer and be stuck in perpetual poverty for the foreseeable future. And I think I found a way to help them in the most altruistic fashion imaginable, which I think I will start a new thread on.

It took me all day yesterday before I realised that the above dream was more than likely a retrieval. When I went to bed last night, I was thinking about my question, 'Are we dead?' and - WHAM! - retrieval jumped into my mind.

That was certainly an interesting dream.  It would have never occurred to me that could have been a retrieval but after you mention it the circumstances sure seem to fit that scenario.  I don't know much about retrievals but I have read many on the forum as well as on TMI.  I always assumed that the one helping out always had a high level of awareness or lucidity but I guess you still have degrees of awareness in non-lucid dreams.  I, myself had a dream a couple nights ago that was some sort of test/simulation and even though I was not lucid, my awareness level was higher than usual and I remembered a lot of detail in that dream. 

Great job on the conclusion of that dream/retrieval!

P.S.  You made me chuckle about the lucidity and chasing after the doctors!  smiley

Why are you giving the money?
Because you're a good person and don't want to see anyone struggle?
Or because one day they'll owe you one?

The action itself is meaningless.
The point is the INTENT behind why you did the action.

So let me ask if one gets a lot of money and gives it to their needy family does that count for good karma?

By learning a lesson you are also making it easier on yourself for your next incarnation... If it gets easier it's somewhat better.
It doesn't mean that you retain the lessons every time tho, I think that when you reincarnate you have less trouble understanding past lessons.
It doesn't mean that the lessons don't get more numerous too...

The thing is, it can get easier, but it's always up to you how difficult you want to make it on yourself...
It's always up to you to decide if you want to use what you have learned or ignore it.

I've been thinking about Karma a lot lately, and I also think that you need to do either something extremely awful or something extremely great to have a noticeable effect on your next life.
There's definitely a buffer to make you go from regular citizen to "homeless mad person that hates everybody" same for the opposite.
What I mean by that is, unless you do a ton of good deeds all your life or one giant good deed, next reincarnation will just follow it's regular path.
Even the regular path can lead to enlightenment if that's what you're wondering.
It doesn't matter how many lives you live because it's not a contest.

Many accounts people/entities say you have lessons you want to learn when you incarnate usually. (You can always take a break).
Being too hard on yourself may very well be a lesson you have to learn, and to move on from your mistakes, dont fret over the inevitable incarnation that you will have no clue as to what it will be, and become a better you generally speaking!
Yeah I've been too hard on myself in the past. I'll just have to see how things go, I want to incarnate with a family I trust, like my brothers family or with his kids kids. I'll see though, it's reassuring that things are generally getting better here though. Thanks for chiming in Karxx Gxx.
