Responding to Abuse

Christina, from California, asks Gurudeva what to do if we encounter abusive situations. Is it our karma to know about it, or are we making karma by not doing something? Gurudeva answers unequivocally, "Do Something!" Otherwise, he explains, you do become involved in the karma of the situation.

The most important rule of honesty is to be be honest to oneself, to be able to face up to our problems and admit that we have been the creator of them. To be honest with oneself brings peace of mind.
