Cayce said that there were different kinds of group karma.  While there
is personal karma (according to EC), there was also family karma,
national karma, to name a few.

I've been involved with the LCC for 25 odd years now, and am just
beginning to realize the karma I have with that group and with the
the other people involved.  While I may have problems with some
of their old fashioned ways, I also have a deep love and karma
