When it comes to crime, I find the concept of Karma confusing. If we see a crime taking place, the natural impulse is to try and prevent it. When we do this, are we interfering with the Karma of others and creating fresh Karma for ourselves?

Shri Shri Guruji's reply:-

When you witness a crime taking place, do whatever you can to prevent it, but don’t be judgmental about any of the people involved in it. If you allow emotions like hatred, anger or revulsion towards the culprits to arise within you, you are definitely generating Karma for yourself.

Do the needful

So, what is wrong with doing the needful?

Besides, what exactly is your question? Are you asking about emotional reactions to thoughts that run through your mind regarding what is observed?

...sorry...doing many things here...multitasking.

I think the core of you question has to do with the understanding of Karma. In my view, your Guru is correct. He makes sense. He is accurate too, in my opinion.

If I share with you my understanding of Karma, your gurus statement may come clear to you also. If you want, you can email me. I don't want to pollute too many threads like I've done in the past.

Multitasking.. just saw your title, and your question

Sorry..multitasking here.

Your question runs deep. In my understanding, chemicals in our body (I think they are called "Neuro-Peptides"..or spooky stuff, doesn't matter what you call them), carry "emotions." And when repressed, ignored, not accepted, these neuropeptides, with the "emotions" they carry, become stored in places in the body, in the muscles. They become "trapped", or "blocked" energy. (A massage therapist ones told me that emotions are stored in the muscles. That's why some clients start to cry when they receive a massage, due to the release of toxins, and release of emotions from the muscles being massaged. Oh well.. sounds good to me.)

These "emotions" that are "trapped", in the body, influence our behavior in inconscious ways. The "subconscious" are "emotions" trapped in the body. The "unconscious" influence they exert on our behavior, as well as health, is what I understand to be "Karma."

How to clear?

Good question. Ask in a separate post, or email me.. I am in the middle of learning how to do it.

Be Present, Friend.
