We create karma, good and bad, in our relationships. (Friendships, spouses, parent and child, etc.) Say two people were in a relationship. Karma was created between them in the relationship. (In addition to the karma generated from all their previous existences together.) One person was on their 105th existence, and the other on their 108th. Since the person on their 108th existence would not return, how would the karma generated in this relationship balance itself out between the two souls?

We comprehend the effects and consequences of karma through meditation.

Mere intellectual analysis cannot resolve the subtleties and complexities of karmic interactions and dependent origination. It is simply too vast, interconnected, and profound for the mind to comprehend.

However, the consciousness can understand these principles, especially by awakening in the worlds of intuition (Geburah) and mathematics (Chesed).

Regarding 108 lives, we can receive extensions based on our merits, meaning: sacrifice and selfless service for humanity.
