This is a continuation of the discussion in this thread.

Coming back to the story about serving the larger individual, the society.

I know a uncle who does a lot of charity job like helping those in need by giving moral support,treat everyone in friendly manner, try to help poor student and organising medical camp for the needy.

Recently, he had a heart attack and undergone a open heart surgery.His daughter was married with 3 children but left the husband because the husband is suffering from Maniac depression .She is currently staying with the father ( the uncle).

The uncle is also not in good term with the son's in law.So sometime i wonder what went wrong. There is always a saying that do good and you will be taken care of but this does not seem to be the case.Is this due to Karma?

Being Selfless, will increase the Awareness level high enough, but if one of the other aspects like body is ignored , there will be problems connected to the body.

It is similar to a farmer, who produces like of rice grains , but feeds his cows and ox less with grains, they will sure be unhealthy.

So if the Uncle has ignored the health then surely there will be diseases. Law of karma is very clear. Like a studious student, if he studies very well , he gets good marks. But if he does not do physical exercise , naturally he will have health problems.

In your uncle's case, he has done lot of good, but he has suffered from heart diseases and his daughter's married life is not good. This is karma, meaning in what levels there was ignorance there will be problem.

This is the reason why Rama Krishna Paramahamasa , Ramana Maharishi had cancer when they were at the highest Awareness state.

Only difference is that because of their higher awareness level, they will have pain but they dont suffer. Normal people suffer more than the physical pain. Also for a person like Ramana Maharishi is a self-test imposed by him to self-experience his own understand that he is not the body. So when cancer developed he was witnessing himself at his own practical understanding. This is why he was able to undergo surgery without anesthesia.

Then what is the use of doing help to others?. That is done to increase Awareness to get rid of the karma of birth and death cycle. This will be answered in connection to another thread of a simple man's search of Truth.

Again the question wont we have material benefits other than awareness, doing charity work?.
Yes material benefits can be procured with the increased awareness. Unfortunately that happens mostly after death. The reason is that in the current birth we cannot share that merits with some body who has not done it.

To make it clear...your uncle cannot give his merits to his daughter who has not done charity. So, he can reap the benefit in the next life time, if he wishes to be born in a wealthy family. At that juncture, the Cosmic Energy arranges this Uncle and other members who has done charity work and wish to cash it as material wealth. Then all the three come to a wealthy family and enjoy it.

This is why death is a shift in rearranging energy of an individual and getting the effects of the action.

If this is not clear, please feel free to ask further question for explanations.

How is the Cosmic energy keeping track of every single soul its merits, karmas performed and arranges rebirth accordingly?
