People get into a heavy-duty sin and guilt trip, feeling that if things
are going wrong, that means that they did something bad and
they are being punished. That's not the idea at all. The idea of
karma is that you continually get the teachings that you need
to open your heart. To the degree that you didn't understand in
the past how to stop protecting your soft spot, how to stop
armoring your heart, you're given this gift of teachings in the form
of your life, to give you everything you need to open further.
