Karma – a case in point?


The messenger.

[Missing from between 04.01.11. ”Hope” and  05.01.11. ”The Pendulum Swings”]

Usually, we can only speculate on the evidence of karma in action but here is a true case strongly indicative of this.
A young woman who, since about the age of eighteen years, was very interested in the female body and its sexual functions and had read about them. As she became aware of her sexual power she began to exploit it and one of her pastimes was enticing men; this to the extent that by the time she turned twenty-one she had had indiscriminate sexual relations with over forty males of all ages. Curiously, she was completely frigid.
On the other hand, this young woman suffered from clinical depression as well as a number of other mental disorders that thwarted her wish to follow a musical career and/or get a job.

When she was twenty-four or twenty-five a clairvoyant told her that in a previous life [she might have specified the immediately previous one] she, the young woman, had grossly misused her sexual powers. I was told no more.
So, here we apparently have a case of misuse of physical attributes and power which, in a later life, creates a life situation in which sexual pleasure is denied and an opportunity provided for balancing behaviour.
The denial of sexual pleasure would be the way the law of karma works to balance experiences: in this case an excess of pleasure in one life being balanced by no pleasure in another.
Where the mentality is concerned, a selfish one in a previous life is countered by an opportunity for an unselfish one in the current life – an opportunity, it seems, not fully embraced. However, if there is any change for the better there is progress.
As for the mental state one can only speculate – there could be a conflict between the spiritual “pull” and the physical/mental “pull” [conflict between spirit and moul] which manifests as mental disorders, or mental disorders manifesting to create a situation in life that creates a desired environment for a particular purpose such as limiting something; the possibilities are numerous.
