"Our karma throws us into roles of saint and sinner, man and woman, king and peasant, but these roles are temporary and shifting. None of them is really us. Spirit uses these roles the way a dramatist uses actors. As convincingly as someone might play Hamlet, we don’t believe that he is killed in the fifth act with a poisoned sword. Separating role from the reality is more difficult with our own roles in life. But the saint is just the sinner in another guise, and the sinner only has to wait to assume the saint’s robes. Why do we play these roles? For experience, for growth, to find our way back to God. Ultimately, all karma serves only two purposes: either it is a sign of love from spirit or it is a lesson meant in love."
