Hi Jerry,

I think that we can make karma-less choices if we act without hope or
desire, for that is where the karmic chains are bound. However, I'm
speaking of personal karma here. Even once we transcend personal karma,
there are higher, incomprehensible (at this stage) levels of karma which
binds "the gods" as well, IMHO. After all, if we consider it as being in
essence the law of cause and effect, the actions of gods would have effects
as well. I do agree with everything else you said.
