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.

It is not advisable to habitually sit for meditation with no particular goal or direction, for we often end up walking in mental or subconscious circles.
