Hi MKR, If we respect and revere Karma and its attributes and wish to aid
all possible, we gladly forget our plight and immerse our selves into
serving, this experience exposes more information to 'us' than all the
years of study, might. We can choose to dwell on our eventual future due
to past or present deeds, but we might begin to renew and regard our
advancement as nothing more as selfish attention, our brother's and
sister's advancement is too important compared to what ever happens to
us. Respectfully, ak
