Crime of any sort creates Karma and it is a crime to create Karma through knowing what is, according to the law “wrong” and what is, according to the law “right”, and then choosing to do wrong.
Although it is recognized in many spiritual circles that there is no right or wrong, no positive or negative, that there is only experience, it is a very wise incarnate that knows that there are certain paths that one must take in order to maximize the evolutionary opportunity whilst within the lower frequencies of the universe, the Earth Plane. The incarnate entity must recognize that there is a need to reduce the number of incarnations necessary to ascend beyond the need for incarnation based evolution.
Committing a crime in this instance is not only an effective way of creating Karma, it is also an effective way to reduce, and even stop, one’s evolutionary growth. Stopping or reducing ones evolutionary growth opportunity is therefore, a crime in itself – perpetuating Karma.
