When however, worldliness is transmuted into Spiritual Integrity he is free, even though he still dwells physically among worldly things." - Manly Hall

It exists from and in Eternity, truly, for it is ETERNITY itself; and as such, since no act can be co-equal with eternity, it cannot be said to act, for it is ACTION itself... Karma creates nothing, nor does it design. It is man who plans and creates causes, and Karmic law adjusts the effects; which adjustment is not an act, but universal harmony, tending ever to resume its original position." - Helena Petrovna Blavatsky

"This Law - whether Conscious or Unconscious -predestines nothing and no one.

It is man who plans and creates causes, and Karmic law adjusts the effects; which adjustment is not an act, but universal harmony, tending ever to resume its original position." - H. P. Blavatsky

"From a Buddhist point of view, the actual experience of death is very important. Although how or where we will be reborn is generally dependent on karmic forces, our state of mind at the time of death can influence the quality of our next rebirth.
