I am sure this is right too, in fact I personally doubt that it has
anything to do with reward and punishments at all, but is, as the
material says it is, the *law* of karma, eg., you bang your head on the
wall and it hurts. The *need* in terms of actions we can take, is not
to be "goody-goody" or the reverse, but to study, learn, and understand
the *law* and how it works.

.. so that some "karmic consequences" will seem like these, especially
when we know what we did to get them ...
>I am really only suggesting that there is more to it than that.
.. with which view I concur!
