Illness of a Practitioner -
Illness Cleans the Fixed Karma
Answered by Quan Yin messenger
(Originally in Chinese)
Q: Why is it that after receiving initiation, I, myself, or my relatives still suffer from mishaps and illnesses? Does Master not take care of all the misfortune?
A: During initiation, Master takes away the karma, which we have accumulated life after life and helps us to get in touch with the Almighty Power within. After that, we need to cleanse our new karma; Master can only help us to a certain extent and cannot cleanse it completely. If our fixed karma were to be completely cleansed, we would pass away because we would no longer have any reason to stay in this world.
Therefore, we still need to pay our debts. We will be ill and we will have misfortunes due to our fixed karma. However, Master will try to dissolve some of our fixed karma in our dreams. But if our karma is too heavy and cannot be dissolved completely, we will have to experience at least half of it physically. This depends on one's situation and karma.
We should practice diligently according to Master's instructions and listen to Her completely so that we can give Master an excuse to help us. We should believe that everything Master does is for the best and have faith in our path of practice. We should not be afraid of the prompt arrivals of the effects due to the causes we made. We should not be afraid to take the responsibility of paying off our debts. Then, we can attain the Truth and eternal liberation quickly in this lifetime.
