I was driving while meditating on illusion-like emptiness and after about an hour I run over a T.V. dealing $600 of damage to my car and stranding me in Nowheresville for a night.
So my question is, when karma is purified, how bad can it get? Life threatening? Problems that last several years?
And second, how can I minimize and protect myself against purified karma? Because I haven't meditated since yesterday because I'm scared my roof will collapse or something (I'm only half-joking).
How karma plays out is unique for everyone. The key point is to rest your mind in the natural state during the fruition of past karma.
