(In that same lecture, Master said that, “… doesn’t mean that people or disciples can do whatever they want and then still get away with the pandemic karmic consequences. You have to really keep yourself in high moral and virtuous way of life. Otherwise, you will just go down like everybody else. If you destroy your own merit, if the merit is too thin and you make one more, even little immoral act or mistake, then that merit will be destroyed. It will balance out and then you will be uncovered.” Master, how much merit is needed to protect oneself against COVID-19? Is it something that can be quantified in spiritual merit points?)
(Master, what should a disciple do if he or she gets infected with COVID-19?)
(Master, is there a timeframe in which the karmic consequences of one’s actions can be subdued? Or once it’s committed it has to be paid in full, regardless of intervention? And how can one know that timeframe and can it ever be totally nullified?)
(Is there something that determines if karma is instant or takes time to develop before becoming active?)
If you are a practitioner, say, in our group, Quan Yin method, of course, you have Master Power protection. But if you step out of the boundary due to your ego or your adventurous spirit or you don’t believe, even if you’re initiated, you didn’t come in because of your faith in the Master, but curiosity or just because you have a girlfriend there, or whatever, then so many things could affect your karmic consequences. If you still have some merit left and if you sincerely practice, the Master can always intervene, and help you, carry you in the Master’s arms when you’re weak and tired. But if you are not this type of sincere practitioner, and not humble in the heart and repentant, not always trying to connect with the Divine, instead of running around outside with fame and name and pleasure and all that, then it’s harder.
