About Karma, Past and Future

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.
