I try, David. Have you read your position on "Faith" as shown on
the CoV page recently? Did you not explictily state that people thinking in
terms of Karma are "mistaken" in your previous message? I guess I read the
implication that you were revealing the true mechanism beneath their false
assumptions...but as this was not explict I may have been hasty. I'm sure
that your position, as everyone here, is infinitely complex.

I do my best. I don't claim to be any good at this.
