Being virtuous is no guarantee that one will be saved in times of disaster or that one will succeed in life.

Everything in a person's life depends on inherent capacities and on how one uses these capacities.

Moses, Rama and Krishna are evenly matched in evil karma involving mass murder, egoism, war and bringing extreme suffering in the lives of people.

IS BEING VIRTUOUS A WINNING FORMULA FOR STRENGTH AND SUCCESS?

A virtuous person could suffer more than a person who does little good if the virtuous person lacks the capacities of resilience and of being successful in material affairs. The surface peace that the virtuous person gains on account of his virtues could easily be neutralized by the suffering brought on by lack of immunity to mental, emotional and environmental impacts of an adverse kind, diseases, family discord, poverty and failure in career. Being virtuous is no guarantee that one will be saved in times of disaster or that one will succeed in life.

DOES A GOOD PERSON REAP THE REWARDS OF BEING GOOD AFTER DEATH?

Being good is no guarantee that in the disembodied state after death that the person's field of consciousness-energy will attain to a state of stability, peace or happiness or that it will be recycled (reincarnated) in progressive surroundings. If the virtuous person has been subjected to mental, emotional and physical suffering during his earthly existence brought on by harsh living conditions, lack of material resources, diseases, family discord, a weak driving force that's easily affected by circumstances or by any other adversity then his disembodied field of consciousness-energy will be as tortured and as shaky after death and expectedly the sufferings of mind and emotions will continue and dominate the good part in him. The net outcome of all his tendencies and the effects they produce will determine any future existence. Most likely, he'll be reborn in a family of moral people in keeping with causation but his mental, emotional, physical and material capacities or surroundings will remain the same or worsen given his tendency to suffer and incapacity to hold at bay their adverse impacts.

HUGH,

Is the G-d of Abraham that you swear by the same as the field of matter, energy and consciousness that brings the cosmos into existence by an act of self-manifestation or did the G-d of Abraham somehow create matter, energy and consciousness from nothing?

LMAO

The causal laws in human affairs work in a most complex manner that cannot be fathomed by the surface consciousness.

Newton's third law of action and reaction involves two material bodies acting on each other and is the grossest manifestation of causation.

Higher up the evolutionary ladder where sentience begins "emerging" in matter, the causal laws work differently from the rigid determinism of Newton's 3rd law involving gross physical objects as many more variables are involved in a sentient system.

In the life of a human being, the action and reaction mechanism covers two or more bodies like say one person interacting with a table or with another human being or with himself on the mental, emotional and physical levels and if the person happens to be a yogi then he comes into direct contact with several higher frequency cosmic energies other than those that he deals with in ordinary life - as for example the supramental.

4 LEVELS OF ACTION-REACTION LAWS:

1) Newton's 3rd law involving physical bodies at the macro level.

2) Quantum effects at the macro and more so at the subatomic level.

3) Karma at work in ordinary human affairs.

4) Direct contact with the higher frequencies of energy field in the life of a yogi.

BUFORD: The dilution factor (of water), plus microbes that just love to eat 4-methylcyclohexane methanol, will make the world as we know it, safe again

JOEL:

A) Will a non-polar organic compound like hexane dissolve in a polar solvent like water?

B) Is water a solvent for 4-methylcyclohexane methanol? How do you know?

Buford,

Can you write the chemical formula of 4-methylcyclohexanemethanol and draw its structure?

QUESTION:

If hexane does not dissolve in water, why does 4-methylcyclohexane methanol dissolve appreciably in water?
