And we, are constantly impacting that karma, by the quality of our thinking, 
feelings and actions at every given moment. Garbage in-garbage out, comes to

Impossible, true compassion by definition cannot be harmful or blind and in 
my opinion is anything but simplistic. If we take the symbolism of 
Christianity as a reference it would seem that compassion arises out of 
Christ consciousness (Buddhi). It is a function of quite an advanced human 
spiritual sensitivity.


Seems to me that a lot of the "instructions" were addressed to fifth sub 
race, fifth root race dilemma's.  I have often wondered if compassion, 
empathy, forgiveness and impersonal inclusive types of love, are not advanced 
examples of sixth sub race or indeed, sixth root race qualities. Manas is the 
dominant issue of our time and HPB and her teachers went a long way to 
addressing those concerns. However, they also pointed to other experiences 
that would come on the journey to enlightenment. The Karmic effects on the 
world as we hit "all the degrees of intelligence between lower and higher 
manas" by "self induced and self devised effort" has yet to be experienced. I 
suspect it will go a long way to mitigating that first noble truth of

Rich, I do not want to beat this thing to death. I will say one last time, in 
my opinion human greed and selfishness of the past, is a major cause of 
current suffering. Any action taken that addresses that human failing is 
worth trying. I did not use the word Marxist nor did I intend to politicize 
this in any way. In fact, I don't even believe that we have the technical 
capacity for such a redistribution program at this time. But that is not the 
issue for me. Developing the sensitivity to world suffering and the WILL to 
do SOMETHING about it is my bottom line. The unending drivel that comes from 
some on this list, about overpopulation and the effects only, type of karmic 
justice, simply does not do it for me.
