You are immersed.
What do you see?
And so on …
… or …
… do you see Karma?
Strands of Karma …
… do you see them?
How strong are the strands?
Are they fickle?
Or are they strong?
Unbreakable, like cables of copper or aluminium?
Or, are they maybe breakable, maybe not, like a jute strand?
Gauge the strength of Karma.
That’s not all.
You’re gauging a few more things.
You’re gauging the speed at which an arrow has been shot.
You’re extrapolating to it’s current speed.
Is the speed slow enough, such that the arrow can change course if a wind starts to blow?
Has the arrow been shot with such speed that it’s course will not change, no matter what?
That’s (drida) Prarabdha Karma.
Now gauge the target.
Is the target mobile and tensile enough to bend away from the arrow?
Is the target even aware of an arrow headed his or her way?
What leverage does the target enjoy?
Enough to get away with it?
You’re gauging whether Kriyamana Karma is strong enough to perhaps lessen impact of Prarabdha.
Next you’re looking at the entire bunch of arrows, including the dormant ones.
Some are waiting to be shot.
Some have been nullified before being shot. It’s almost like they won’t be shot.
A couple are in the bow, which has been pulled. These are about to go off.
What’s the bottom-line?
You’re talking more Karma and less Astrology.
Is that a good thing?
It all boils down to Karma in the end.
We can start talking about Karma from the beginning.
More like a top-down approach as opposed to a bottom-up one.
