Understand that everything is connected to everything else. There is balance in the Universe. Understand that it is the Great Cosmic Algebraic Equation --- that what you do on your side of the equation affects me and the rest of the Universe. It builds up and then comes back to you. Called the Absolute Law of Cause and Effect (aka Karma), it allows you the opportunity to learn from your mistakes.
had negative intent (energy) behind your misdeed, that multiplies the
force of the "boomerang effect". If you don't get caught and punished
for criminal misdeeds to help lessen the force of karma, don't worry ---
pay now or pay later. It's sort of a "cosmic layaway plan".

has its own spiritual and unique "fingerprint" (blueprint) called
Spiritual Essence. It manifests on the mental, emotional and physical
levels as elements of your soul. If you don't feel the essence of your
godliness (goodness) because you are so gunked up with karmic crud, that

too easy for the outer self to take a spiritual truth (piece of the
bigger puzzle) and misapply it.
To illustrate: The devil and a
friend of his were walking down the street, when they saw ahead of them a
man stoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and
put it away in his pocket. The friend said to the devil,"What did that
man pick up?" He picked up a piece of Truth,"said the devil. "That is
very bad business for you, then,"said his friend. "Oh, not at all,"the
devil replied,"I am going to help him organize it."
