Many events we encounter in our lives do not result from good or bad past actions. Such events will find their karmic compensation in the future. If I am blameless of what now befalls me, I will find compensation in the future. The fact that nothing remains without karmic adjustment is unequivocal. However, whether a man’s present experience is the effect of his karmic past or the cause of a future karma must be determined individually. Occult experience and observation, and not an intellect adapted to the physical world, can alone determine this.
