Karma is Negotiable
Destiny and the Divine Power of Love
A Book by Nikias Annas
"Inside of us is something eternal, that never dies, and is the very root of our existence. It is a state of joyfulness and love, bright with contentment and deep, inner satisfaction. Unfortunately, we do not know how to experience this part of ourselves, because we have become so deeply fascinated with our desires and fears. Yet through training, we can abandon the illusions that cause us to suffer, and instead get to know the source of true happiness and fulfillment." —Nikias Annas
Although the word "karma” is Sanskrit and is associated with Eastern religions, it simply refers to the law of cause and effect. Karma is not blind destiny or divine judgment, but is the principle the describes the natural reverberation that emerges from every action, whether that action is physical, emotion, mental, or spiritual.
Suffering and pain are not punishment from a tyrant God, nor are they "normal” or mere "coincidence.” When we truly understand the law of action and consequence, we can see that our lives are a result of our own moment to moment ignorance of the effects of our actions. We create our own suffering, therefore, we can create our own happiness instead, if we know how. No matter what religion or background we come from, through conscious action from moment to moment, we can originate a new set of causes, which in turn will generate a new set of results. This is how we can revolutionize our life. The power to change is in our hands.

About the Author
Nikias Annas, whose Greek name means "victory to divine compassion," studied all major religions before discovering the Gnostic tradition of Samael Aun Weor, which radically transformed his life and gave him the keys to experiencing the reality of those religions for himself. This book is his way of showing his gratitude.
