Dear Teachers,

When studying about the law of cause and effect (Karma Law), I found these verses.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.

Hadith Book 39
Chapter 15: None would attain salvation because of his deeds but it is through Lord’s mercy (that he would attain that).

Reading them at a glance, I would think that no matter what my thought-word-action is, there will be no direct consequences to it. Good or bad, it will not be counted, only God’s grace or mercy, that will decide the consequences. But this understanding contradicts the ultimate law of cause and effect.

So, what do those verses truly mean, in relation to Karma Law?

Kindly enlighten, thanks.

As the Muslims state: "Pray to God, but tie your camel to the post."

Karma is an infallible law. Not even divinity breaks it. And yet the karmic and divine law are merciful. Karma is negotiable. We can be helped to negotiate our karma as a special grace when we have earned it.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
