KARMA AND THE SCIENCE OF REBIRTH
the ancient myths all the Gods abandon us so that we can discover ourselves, only we
ourselves can destroy the dragon of our own ignorance. Oppression or hardship in life may
not be an indication of bad karma but the shadow of the good grace of the spiritual path
in a world that is contrary to it. Moreover, the spiritual life often involves a
quickening of our karma, an attempt to work it out at a faster rate. For this reason
we may experience more negative karma as we move along the path. This again is no
indication of necessary evil in our nature but part of a process of purification.
Ultimately we must go beyond all karma, good or evil. This is to place our sense of
reality in our true Self, not in the effects of our actions. We must eventually renounce
the fruit of all our actions. In that alone is freedom and transcendence. Hence the
highest good is motiveless and does not seek results. The greatest virtue does not seek to
change the world or improve ourselves but to rest in harmony with the peace of what is.
