The Gods Do Not Punish

An e-devotee asks Gurudeva for clarification of the statements in Merging with Siva about the Gods working with karma differently for younger souls and older souls. Gurudeva explains that the Gods work with the laws of karma to help mitigate karma or not. They give blessings and boons and They withdraw blessings and boons, but They do not punish. Those who have a conscience punish themselves. Aum Namasivaya!

Remember, when the seal is broken and clear white light has flooded the mind, there is no more a gap between the inner and the outer. Even uncomplimentary states of consciousness can be dissolved through meditation and seeking again the light.
