“Karma for most of us is best understood as ‘cause and effect,’ relating to our daily interactions with others. Bob’s book seeks to show that karma is not so easily explained, or to be seen in such black-and-whit terms. It is much more complex and interwoven with past-life situations that play a part in our current earthly lives. It also relates to some of the great puzzles of our time, such as the causes of pandemics and illnesses, wars and climate change.

“Bob rightly trusts his wonderful spirit guides and lets them have pride of place.” — Peter John

The concept of karma is derived from ancient Eastern religious tradition, but the word has become very much a part of contemporary vocabulary. We speak of karma in the sense of individuals getting “what they deserve”—usually in a negative sense. But is karma a law of retribution or is it based on healing and love?

In this thought-provoking work, Dr. Bob Woodward investigates such issues in conversation with his spirit guides. Beginning with the most basic question of what karma is, they describe how this law of destiny relates to illness, human freedom, relationships and individual development, as well as major world crises such as the coronavirus pandemic, wars and conflicts, global warming, and climate change. They also examine how such key issues might relate to “world karma” rather than to personal destinies.

Woodward’s spiritual guides speak of karmic law as being “filled with compassion.” It is not a law that makes people or beings subservient to some almighty and dictatorial power, but a law generated by love itself. It exists to bring order, recompense, and compassion to all beings in their mutual relationships.

Karma in Human Life offers answers to many questions and enigmas relating to modern-day earthly life.
