        Thanks for the response.

        "Killing" the "I", eliminating the "illusion" of I which unfolds the
Unity has been discussed for a long time. Some years ago, it was mentioned
that one of the interpretations of the Cross is Killing the I like a sword
cutting off a vertical body.

        I agree at some level of consciousness the complexity should become
"simple". The point I was trying to make was that all the various
explantions and writings on Karma are perhaps a very rudimentary and vary
limited approach to explain it. Perhaps that is all that is possible at the
limited physical level.
