If one is successful in neutralizing enough karma to 
substantially transcend karmic repercussions, I suspect 
that that might lead to various forms of greater stability ...
That is, I'm speculating that such stability might be 
possible, sooner or later, for those who have learned their 
lesson from experiencing enough of such as overripe 
fruit, tattered duds, wrinkles, gray hairs, stains, rainy 
days, poor TV programming, empty peanut butter jars, 
bad hair days, warm pop, unsalted peanuts, healthfood, 
etc, etc ...
