How should we deal with (whether it is in our favour or not) Karmic retribution? We all pass through these sorts of situations, some are unavoidable, some are, is it possible to do certain deeds on a specific day to either pay the karma or override it in some way that is harmonious with ourselves, others and the universal law/s?

Because we all have ego, our judgments are usually clouded, we may think that we are performing a good deed, but in fact we are just creating more karma, maybe not only for ourselves, but for others as well, this is something quite shocking to think about, on the other hand one can get caught up in trying to always obtain beneficial karma, just like someone who is seeking more coin, more profit. My thoughts at the moment are simply to stop creating more karma, I'm sure that this is a common goal, yet how do we begin to acquire an understanding of our karmic situation so that we can progress more efficiently on the path?

Thank you for your sincere efforts to assist us, may all beings have eternal peace and happiness!

Meditation is fundamental when we sincerely yearn for change. Let us remember that Karma has four fundamental principles:

1) Cause and effect is certain
2) The effect is always greater than its cause
3) You cannot receive the consequence without committing its corresponding action
4) Once an action is formed, the consequence cannot be erased

However:
The Lion of the Law is fought with the Scale.

When an Inferior Law is transcended by a Superior Law, the Superior Law washes away the Inferior Law.

The solution to these two golden rules is found in a third which states:

Perform good deeds; thus you will pay your debts.
-Samael Aun Weor, The Zodiacal Course: Taurus

It is also important to remember the four requisites of the Magician, or the One Who initiates:

1) To know how to be silent
2) To know how to abstain
3) To know how to be serene
4) To know how to die

You will understand the nature of Karma, whether in the physical or internal worlds, through the art of creative comprehension in meditation and through spontaneous, intuitive action, free of dualistic conception. This is accomplished through vigilance, watchfulness and mindfulness. Learn to meditate on the causes of your suffering, and you will begin to comprehend the nature of Karma and right action.

Please study the following resources:

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
