KARMA AND THE SCIENCE OF REBIRTH
karma is not incapacity but the highest accomplishment and greatest mastery over all the
domains of life. The key to it is not to seek. Our inner Self is the central point of the
universe. We need not act overtly. If we merely abide in our own deepest nature all the
universe must respond to it, must revolve around it. All things are accomplished by their
own nature and in that nature is peace in both action and non-action.
Karma is based upon desire. It reflects the freedom of our soul. As long as we have
desires we must take embodiment to fulfill them. As desire is limited, has a specific aim,
it must have an end or lead to sorrow. Hence only when we desire everything or nothing
will we find peace. Hence Yoga aims at going beyond desire. This does not mean giving up
the things we want but seeing that it is beneath our dignity as a Divine being to want
anything or make our happiness dependent upon anything that comes from the outside.
