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!
