The examples you quote are very useful to me. Thanks.
If we look on any action of ours as moved by MOTIVE, the very
choice affects billions of living MONADS. They being affected
become the "vehicles" or
carriers" of the KARMA resulting from our choices.
They are either improved and elevated, or they are retarded in
their own progress. As they are magnetically linked to us, they
immediately color our choices now and in the future by the
coloring we give them. So Karma it seems to me begins right
Major precipitations good or bad, would seem to arrive to teach
us, at some time when we and the rest of those affected are in a
position to profit from the effort of GREAT NATURE to being about
the needed balance and restoration of harmony.
See if that adds to our grasp of this subject.

All well and good, as far as speculations or theories go. But,

of the fundamental truths, then, provided one looks a little
deeper, all the
derivative analogies and correspondences also become self
