      Dear Terrie:

      Here are the "aphorisms" on Karma --enjoy but of all this
      reading, review and think to see if what is said is true and
      evokes a response from within yourself.

      Best wishes,

      APHORISMS ON KARMA


      (1) There is no Karma unless there is a being to make it or feel
      its effects.[PARA][PARA](2) Karma is the adjustment of effects
      flowing from causes, during which the being upon whom and through
      whom that adjustment is effected experiences pain or
      pleasure.[PARA][PARA](3) Karma is an undeviating and unerring
      tendency in the Universe to restore equilibrium, and it operates
      incessantly.[PARA][PARA](4) The apparent stoppage of this
      restoration to equilibrium is due to the necessary adjustment of
      disturbance at some other spot, place, or focus which is visible
      only to the Yogi, to the Sage, or the perfect Seer: there is
      therefore no stoppage, but only a hiding from
      view.[PARA][PARA](5) Karma operates on all things and beings from
      the minutest conceivable atom to Brahma. Proceeding in the three
      worlds men, gods, and the elemental beings, no spot in the
      manifested universe is exempt from its sway.[PARA][PARA](6) Karma
      is not subject to time, and therefore he who knows what is the
      ultimate division of time in this Universe knows
      Karma.[PARA][PARA](7) For all other men Karma is in its essential
      nature unknown and unknowable.[PARA][PARA](8) But its action may
      be known by calculation from cause to effect; and this
      calculation is possible because the effect is wrapped up in and
      is not succedent to the cause.[PARA][PARA](9) The Karma of this
      earth is the combination of the acts and thoughts of all beings
      of every grade which were concerned in the preceding Manvantara
      or evolutionary stream from which ours flows.[PARA][PARA](10) And
      as those beings include Lords of Power and Holy Men, as well as
      weak and wicked ones, the period of the earth's duration is
      greater than that of any entity or race upon it.[PARA][PARA](11)
      Because the Karma of this earth and its races began in a past too
      far back for human minds to reach, an inquiry into its beginning
      is useless and profitless.[PARA][PARA](12) Karmic causes already
      set in motion must be allowed to sweep on until exhausted, but
      this permits no man to refuse to help his fellows and every
      sentient being.[PARA][PARA](13) The effects may be counteracted
      or mitigated by the thoughts and acts of oneself or of another,
      and then the resulting effects represent the combination and
      interaction of the whole number of causes involved in producing
      the effects.[PARA][PARA](14) In the life of worlds, races,
      nations, and individuals, Karma cannot act unless there is an
      appropriate instrument provided for its action.[PARA][PARA](15)
      And until such appropriate instrument is found, that Karma
      related to it remains unexpended.[PARA][PARA](16) While a man is
      experiencing Karma in the instrument provided, his other
      unexpended Karma is not exhausted through other beings or means,
      but is held reserved for future operation; and lapse of time
      during which no operation of that Karma is felt causes no
      deterioration in its force or change in its
      nature.[PARA][PARA](17) The appropriateness of an instrument for
      the operation of Karma consists in the exact connection and
      relation of the Karma with the body, mind, intellectual and
      psychical nature acquired for use by the Ego in any
      life.[PARA][PARA](18) Every instrument used by any Ego in any
      life is appropriate to the Karma operating through
      it.[PARA][PARA](19) Changes may occur in the instrument during
      one life so as to make it appropriate for a new class of Karma,
      and this may take place in two ways: (a) through intensity of
      thought and the power of a vow, and (b) through natural
      alterations due to complete exhaustion of old
      causes.[PARA][PARA](20) As body and mind and soul have each a
      power of independent action, any one of these may exhaust,
      independently of the others, some Karmic causes more remote from
      or nearer to the time of their inception than those operating
      through other channels.[PARA][PARA](21) Karma is both merciful
      and just. Mercy and Justice are only opposite poles of a single
      whole; and Mercy without Justice is not possible in the
      operations of Karma. That which man calls Mercy and Justice is
      defective, errant, and impure.[PARA][PARA](22) Karma may be of
      three sorts: (a) presently operative in this life through the
      appropriate instruments; (b) that which is being made or stored
      up to be exhausted in the future; Karma held over from past life
      or lives and not operating yet because inhibited by
      inappropriateness of the instrument in use by the Ego, or by the
      force of Karma now operating.[PARA][PARA](23) Three fields of
      operation are used in each being by Karma: (a) the body and the
      circumstances; (b) the mind and intellect; the psychic and astral
      planes.[PARA][PARA](24) Held-over Karma or present Karma may
      each, or both at once, operate in all of the three fields of
      Karmic operation at once, or in either of those fields a
      different class of Karma from that using the others may operate
      at the same time.[PARA][PARA](25) Birth into any sort of body and
      to obtain the fruits of any sort of Karma is due to the
      preponderance of the line of Karmic tendency.[PARA][PARA](26) The
      sway of Karmic tendency will influence the incarnation of an Ego,
      or any family of Egos, for three lives at least, when measures of
      repression, elimination, or counteraction are not
      adopted.[PARA][PARA](27) Measures taken by an Ego to repress
      tendency, eliminate defects, and to counteract by setting up
      different causes, will alter the sway of Karmic tendency and
      shorten its influence in accordance with the strength or weakness
      of the efforts expended in carrying out the measures
      adopted.[PARA][PARA](28) No man but a sage or true seer can judge
      another's Karma. Hence while each receives his deserts,
      appearances may deceive, and birth into Poverty or heavy trial
      may not be punishment for bad Karma, for Egos continually
      incarnate into poor surroundings where they experience
      difficulties and trials which are for the discipline of the Ego
      and result in strength, fortitude, and sympathy.[PARA][PARA](29)
      Race-Karma influences each unit in the race through the law of
      Distribution. National Karma operates on the members of the
      nation by the same law more concentrated. Family Karma governs
      only with a nation where families have been kept pure and
      distinct; for in any nation where there is a mixture of family -
      as obtains in each Kaliyuga period - family Karma is in general
      distributed over a nation. But even at such periods some families
      remain coherent for long periods, and then the members feel the
      sway of family Karma. The word "family" may include several
      smaller families.[PARA][PARA](30) Karma operates to produce
      cataclysms of nature by concatenation through the mental and
      astral planes of being. A cataclysm may be traced to an immediate
      physical cause such as internal fire and atmospheric disturbance,
      but these have been brought on by the disturbance created through
      the dynamic power of human thought.[PARA][PARA](31) Egos who have
      no Karmic connection with a portion of the globe where a
      cataclysm is coming on are kept without the latter's operation in
      two ways: (a) by repulsion acting on their inner nature, and (b)
      by being called and warned by those who watch the progress of the
      world.[PARA][PARA]Path, March, 1893[PARA]

      Dear Adelasie,

      Hi! I LOVE your rap (thoughts/concept) very much -
      thank you for sharing your insights with me.!


      Dear Dallas,

      -Oooh- more rap, thank you very much, I enjoy these
      reads. You asked me if I've read The Aphorism on
      Karma, honestly, maybe, dunno, but, thanks very much
      for the suggestion, of course!

      Have a BEAUTIFUL day,
