Why do things happen, why?
“There is no such thing as fate; you make your own destiny.
God has given you independence to shut out his power or to let him in.You have more strength to overcome difficulties than you have troubles to overcome. You can remedyyour mistakes because God has given you reason and will”Paramahansa Yogananda
Grace or disaster, how grounded do you want to be?
Each of us cultivates a karmic state, which is an exact reflection of the distance we have createdbetween our existence and our Being; between illusion and truth.Dr. Stylianos Atteshlis "The esoteric Teachings”
The constant interaction of breath and soul“One way of translating the word karma is “original action”; we often think that good actions, a job welldone on a material mental or intellectual level, or any other type of action is the true good karma. Butactually karma, the original action, is situated inside the pituitary gland; it is the constant interaction ofbreath and Soul”.Swami Shankarananda Giri “Kriya Yoga Darshan”
Karma, not a matter of rewards or punishment
Karma is an element of the Law of Cause and Effect. This law is not a matter of rewards orpunishments. As scientists have learned in recent centuries, and as mystics have always known, everyevent which happens has a cause, and every cause a result. It is the economy of energy and everyenergy expresses a vibration and a quality. This law, seen from the point of view of the worlds ofseparation, leads us to classify things as good or evil, and consequently, as leading to reward orpunishment. But no judgement is involved.Dr. Stylianos Atteshlis” The esoteric Teachings”
