[Luna2ne] Does Dick Hein have a message for us at this time? (our recently departed scholar friend?)
[Michael_Entity] We do not convey messages from the dead. This fragment will contact those with whom the Personality feels a message might be meaningful.
[kath821] Concerning this fellow Michael student, Dick Hein, what, if anything, can you share with us to explain the motivations and benefits or disadvantages of what happened with him? Is this self-karmic?

[Tibtyc] Good evening, Michael. How can one speed up the work on karma, external and internal? I begin to realize that I have procrastinated a lot in my life. Also, in what way can the concept of Triads helps us to understand, and work on, karma? That is my question.
M Entity: In answer to your first version of the question: One can “speed up” the process of Karma simply by doing it. There are no “short cuts,” but there can be resistance, which can greatly delay the balancing of Karma. In terms of external Karma, all Fragments involved must be present, so a great deal of the “speed” of that process is dependent on group effort.

[Jon] What percentage of relationships is karmic (or in some way predetermined)? Does this mean that we are unable to choose whether to enter the relationship, or just that it is easier to enter (and harder to screw up)?
November 30, 2004
I’ve wanted to have Michael respond to this (and several other questions) for some time now, so here we go:
ALAN ASKED: If a person abandons his/her partner and the partner commits suicide does that person who leaves incur any karma? Does the person committing suicide incur self karma?
Abandonment can lead to Karma if the abandoned party was left with an obvious interference to his or her ability to choose. Many who choose to “abandon” another fragment are simply choosing a different path, which is healthy and natural in the process of a lifetime; however, those “left behind” by the fragment will usually generate Self-Karma as a result, unless (as stated) an interference to his or her ability to choose is a direct result of that “abandonment.”

[Leela] I’ve been wondering recently if there is particular karma that Jews as a group have carried over the millennia. Is there any truth to this perception?
[Michael_Entity] Races/religious groups can have Karma that is dealt with collectively over millennia, yes. We see those who choose the context of lifetimes as a Jew as participating more in terms of religious imprinting as a means to explore common themes. There is no particular Karma for Jews that we can see being valid as a whole, but the draw to be born as part of this group in any form is highly appealing to Mature Souls seeking intense lessons around family and imprinting. Races and religions create CONTEXTS more than they do Karma. For instance, the race known as Black or African/American is now a powerful draw for newly Young Souls.

[H2OSprtlvr] I am drawn to an individual that I have done business with. While in his shop, he opened up and told me about a whole host of problems he is dealing with. He seems to be nothing but trouble. Why do I feel attached to helping him to see another way of things? I don’t understand why I am drawn to someone with problems I know I can’t help with.

[Question] Are there any karmic scenarios that would make it difficult for personality to create what it wants?

[HeidiH] I’m confused about my current relationship with my boyfriend known as “Gary.” Do we have any agreements or karmic ties and what path would be the most beneficial to each of us?
[MEntity] You are only confused because that is a way to avoid making a choice. You are waiting for a choice to be made for you, instead of by you. Confusion is a means of delaying participation in an event because you either do not like the options available, or you believe other options will eventually reveal themselves.

A “ribbon” is our term for the energetic bond that links one fragment to another after an imbalance (karma) has been created between the two of you. This “ribbon” is part of how and why each of you “finds” each other again through time and space. The “ribbon” is unbreakable without the mutual attempt to balance the Karma.

[ludmila] There has been much talk lately about child-abuse. What kind of karma or agreements is involved in this? Specifically sexual abuse of children by adult authority figures
[Michael_Entity] Child abuse is not a standardized event. There are many factors that may be involved in the experience of abuse, whether between adult and child, human and non-human, etc. Karma is either created or is being balanced, though it is very rare for an Agreement to be involved, except in the Old and Mature Soul Cycles. Abuse when linked to an Agreement is specifically, then, related to the imprinting required for the fulfillment of the Life Task. Whether the abuse is “used” effectively as a tool in that process will rely on the fragment and the use of the Overleaves, in general.
