Look around you. Do you really think that there is NO order in
the arrangements of nature, be they atomic, human or celestial?

Where is your capacity for thought? How did you develop it? Can
you assume that everyone has similar capacities and will arrive
at comparable conclusions? Or are you so unique there is nothing
comparable to your existence anywhere?

What is reality? What is Certainty?

Yes there are three things absolutely certain for everyone:

1.	I exist. -- as a focus for thought.

2.	The Universe in its diversity surrounds me and exists.

3.	There is a flow, an on-going relationship, a series of facets
of experience and meaning between myself and the Universe.

We make millions of assumptions all the day long and assume they
are correct because w we have thought or reasoned the out. Are
we sure ? By what process ?

If a Scientist records his experiments as they develop. If an
historian writes of his observations of events, are we to
endlessly question them, or are we to secure comparative evidence

Yes LAW ( call it Karma -- action / reaction ) is omnipresent.
"God" is omnipresent. Space is omnipresent. Even matter in its
ultimate essence is omnipresent, and so are the powers of the

Why can we not ascribe immortality to the Mind and the
INDIVIDUALITY? Is it not a part of the God-essence? Is that not
omnipresent and immortal ?

Are we to question and deny them, or inquire into, demonstrate
and prove them? Where and what is the TRUTH of any subject or
matter taken up for consideration ?

Indeed dictatorial Theosophists are emphatic that Karma does not
only "ad just all our relationships," but also "keeps the stars
their courses and every atom in being. "( "Karma and

All such claims are open to the criticism that, if they are
interpreted in a straightforward way, they are simply absurd and,
they are interpreted in such a way as to avoid absurdity, they
absolutely nothing. If it is maintained that the lawful behavior
molecules, mountains, or planets are instances of rewards and
punishments, this is plainly absurd, since molecules, planets,
and mountains cannot perform good or evil deeds. If, to avoid
absurdity, "Karma" is taken in a broader sense in which it is
a synonym for "lawfulness" or "regularity," then calling the
laws of nature instances of Karma is saying nothing at all. It is
plain that we do not understand the regularities of the world any
better and nothing whatever has been added to the content of any
known law. Calling natural regularities instances of Karma is
as enlightening as describing them as manifestations of the
Mind or as instances of the dialectical interplay of Being and
