Responding to Abuse


Christina, from California, asks Gurudeva what to do if we encounter abusive situations. Is it our karma to know about it, or are we making karma by not doing something? Gurudeva answers unequivocally, "Do Something!" Otherwise, he explains, you do become involved in the karma of the situation.

In a relaxed state, happiness is found, and the qualities of the soul shine forth. Selfish, greedy people are tense, concerned, often inhibited. Tension breeds negative thinking.
