Each soul has become impure due its own actions during its various births. We ourselves became impure and peaceless because of losing our self awareness, so it is useless to blame anyone else. It is too easy to blame “so-and-so.” Today, everyone blames someone else: * It’s the religions, * It’s the government, * It’s the social pressures, * It’s the Devil (Ravana), * It’s my wife, * It’s my boss. Few can see that their own unhappiness is because of their own weaknesses or actions under the influence of these weaknesses. The Devil is just a symbolic personification of these negative forces at work in every soul. The soul itself creates its accounts, good and bad, so the soul itself must balance them. No human soul can settle someone else’s account of sins. In this respect many souls are being misled by those who claim to be able to change or interfere with the workings of the laws of karma. The ones claiming this have their own accounts of sins to settle. While they still remain in a physical body they are within the boundaries of the same laws that apply to all. The law of karma, of reaping and sowing, action and reaction applies to everyone.
The account of impure actions can only be balanced by pure actions on the part of the doer; the soul. Truly pure actions can only be performed when one is in a state of soul-consciousness and in remembrance of the one who is beyond action; the Supreme Soul (God). In burning love for the Supreme, sins can be rapidly burned. The soul need only increase its love for the Supreme Soul and remember him correctly.
