Still wed to life, I am free from care,
Since life and death in cycles come and go,
Of little moment are the days to spare.
Thus strong in faith I wait, and long to be
One with the pulsings of eternity."

What has the main area of karma been for you in this lifetime? Is it harmonious or inharmonious?
Where, if anywhere, did your mind become agitated with the course or course content?
Try to maintain your meditation practice. At least five minutes a day.
What karma are you creating in this lifetime, consciously or otherwise?
Do you feel that you have made sacrifices for anything?
Where would you like to incarnate next time, and how would you choose to spend it?
