Theos-World RE: KARMA THE UNIVERSAL LAW Vs: SPECULATION theos-talk-digest V1 #770

Dallas offers a general view:

Before I or anyone goes off into wide speculation as to what
Karma does, or does not do, acts or does not act, records or
fails to record, and follows the flight of fancy of those who
have written on it, and on the possible escapism for the
personality for its peccadilloes, we ought, all of us to pick up
one of the basic texts of theosophy like the KEY TO THEOSOPHY.

There we will find that Karma is an aspect of the ABSOLUTE ALL.
It does not react selectively.  It is impartial.  Its records
thus do NOT fail to record our smallest thoughts, feelings, and
or acts, whether knows to others or even hidden, and whether they
be good or bad.

Strange that innately we know right away if our choices are
"good" or  is this, not possibly one of the pieces of evidence
that we have lived before, and that we have stored up a memory
(whether sub-conscious, or super-conscious) of the results?
Something in us knows the difference and either approves or
disapproves.  Why should that be?

I think it is important to find out the answer to these
observations and that question.

If the Universe is a unity of diversities then its way of life is
a harmony of discords.  But does that not indicate that there is
SOMETHING which is not involved in the differences, the
satisfactions, and the sufferings ?  Ho, where, what is THAT ?

Theosophy offers a philosophy that includes reasonable answers to
those propositions, and whether we "like" them or do not "like"
them, the question is not of preference, but of fact.  What is
the fact ?  Not, "What is the way to escape unpleasantness ?"

If we are at our core the MONAD  (Atma-Buddhi) or, an immortal
point of life.  Our past is enormously long and it has taken
aeons for the MONAD that is ME in REALITY to arrive at this point
where I live in a human body.

I am now able to learn by self-effort.  Am I going to "fool"
myself or engage in serious "find-out?"

I like the idea that one of the prerogatives of this situation is
that I don't have to worry about my "death."  I don't have to
worry about the "rush."  I don't have to worry about my future.
I do perhaps prefer to have a future that is even, and
constructive.  If I share the world and Univese with billions of
other "IMMORTALS"  then why not engage my time in finding out how
to live and work with them>?

I figure that so far Theosophy has served to answer many of these
questions and always encourages investigation and independent
verification of its doctrines.  Which is a great deal more than
most theologies or even psychologies do.

Hope this is of some help

So Boddhisattva would wait and work for others until collective
karma has been eliminated and those who have attained
enlightenment (eliminated their personal karma) would just be
blissed and enjoyed listening Nirvana until the others have
crumbled their way and the collective karma is eliminated.Then
everybody could go on to another whatever?
