…. a mirror is usually truthful, as is karma, which is a cosmic mirror reflecting our true nature to us. The truth can be painful and unwanted, but not ‘evil’, not in the conventional sense of the world ‘evil’.….
The Devil is Karma, the Evil is Karma, Death/Life/light are all Karma and Justice and a Mirror to Realize our True Virtuous Nature and our Discovery.
Karma is Devil and Karma is Good. It is our Twin and the Twin in all things.
Ancient Etymology of Karma
The Sanskrit word KARMA means “action; work; fate; the deed done; work performed”. Its’ etymological roots lay in words that mean “to make; to form; to do”, thus linking karma with a creative function. Karma reflects the mind that acts and creates. Etymology: KARMA; KWER (Proto-Indo-European = to make, form); KERAS (Lithuanian = charm); KI (Sumerian = Earth, the Earth Goddess); KA ( Egyptian = spirit; life force; double; guardian; guide; conscience); VIPAKA (Note the KA in this Sanskrit word and agricultural metaphor that is associated with karma. It means RIPENING; MATURING; CONSEQUENCES); KAMI (Shinto name for deities and nature spirits); KAMUY (Ainu = spiritual beings; gods).

Karma is a form of justice); TEMPUS (lat= time); TIME; DUE (owing; what is owed. Karmic dues?); DEBT (karmic debt?); DUO (gk=two); Etymology: DEBIT (sum owed that is recorded on the left-hand side of an account book, hence double-entry bookkeeping. The ‘left hand path’ is considered ‘evil’); DUTY (moral obligation; work; tax); TAX; TAXIS (gk= arrangement); DAIVA (skt= fate); DIANA (Roman Goddess of the moon and of hunting. Karma hunts its debtors. Diana shoots arrows: arrows of time?); DOOM (statute; law; decree; fate; destiny; death; the Last Judgement by God at the end of the world); DOMUS (Lat= house); DOME; DUOMO (Italian= Cathedral); DEMO (gk= build); DAMN (condemn; censure; curse); DAMNUM (lat= loss; harm.

Yielding to Tyger
Lovingly mirrored from and yielding to the Tyger:
“A commonly held ‘new age’/religious belief is that everything is an illusion except for the ultimate underlying reality of infinite awareness/’God’. I basically agree with this view, but think it is being misapplied to our circumstances here on Earth.
For example, some say that TIME and CAUSE-AND-EFFECT (KARMA) are illusions that only exist here in our isolated bubble of non-reality that we call the ‘electromagnetic universe’. But if you accept the notion that the whole of Creation is holographic and interconnected, then everything that exists in our ‘bubble’ must have equivalent versions in other ‘higher’ dimensions.
There must be ‘higher’ versions of time and karma. Those higher minds may be superior to us, but are still imperfect compared to ‘God’, so will still need a stable system of cause-and-effect within which to interact with one another, otherwise everything would collapse back into ‘God’.
We holographic fragments of the ‘Creator’ will pass through different levels of existence, thus an ongoing system of karma needs to be maintained as we grow and evolve.
Reincarnation is based on the idea of karma surviving wherever you go. You can run but you can’t hide from your karmic destiny.
Also to consider is what we mean by the words ILLUSION and REAL. An act of deception could be described as both REAL and ILLUSION. It’s real in the sense that real minds participated in the deception; but it’s illusory in the sense that someone is being deceived.
I don’t like it when someone casually says: “pain is an illusion”. To the sufferer it is very real.
Pain is a type of feedback (karma/cause-and-effect) that helps us to make sense of our life. I think that the intense pain that you feel when your physical body is broken is due to the GREAT WORK.
The physical human body channels the karma of the REBEL (who initiated the Great Work) so that the Rebel can try to escape the consequences of its’ actions. The pain is intense because the Rebel’s karma is substantial and concentrated.
The human body acts as a buffer or electrical insulator, until it breaks, then the pain floods into our minds like God’s flood of water that Noah and Moses escaped from.
Pain is an example of instant karma, as is ‘mind over matter’. Your mind can achieve minor control over your own physical body.”
