Dear Mic, Jerry & Dallas:

Here is the place where much difficulty lies in understanding the nature of 
karma. So long as ones attention is drawn to the illusions of cause OR 
effect, the capacity to experience a karma-less action dissolves. Every 
society in existence has some form of the altruistic virtues available to 
them. They may be regarded by many names. Ideals, The Golden Precepts, The 
Ten Commandments, The Beatitudes, The Virtues, Spiritual Laws or Principles. 
By whatever name, they are understood to be the uncorrupted or pure essence 
of higher being. They are the rules of spiritual evolution & growth and they 
CANNOT be rationalized. The moment they are, either as a physical emotional 
or mental behavior, KARMA ATTACHES. The only way that a Master or a human 
personality may act without karmic effect is to embody the essence of such 
virtues & ideals at the moment of action on all three planes. There is no 
"large gap in time between the two" if the student, disciple, or adept is 
properly centered in his higher nature at the moment of action. Self 
realization and its acquisition is the study and practice, that releases and 
resolves karmic effect. One must start from where they are, not from where 
they wish to be.
