What principles should we apply in life to negotiate our Karma?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
Fortunately my friends, Justice and Mercy are the two Toral Columns of the Universal White Lodge.
Justice without Mercy is tyranny; Mercy without Justice is tolerance, indulgence of the crime. Karma is negotiable, and this is something which may surprise a great many of the followers of the different orthodox schools.
Some pseudo-esoterists and pseudo-occultists have become excessively pessimistic in relation to the law of action and consequence; they mistakenly consider that it operates in a mechanical, automatic, and cruel manner. The erudites believe that it is not possible to alter the law; I am sincerely sorry, but I have to disagree with this manner of thinking.
If the law of action and consequence, if the nemesis of existence were not negotiable, what then would remain of divine mercy? Frankly, I am unable to accept cruelty in divinity. The real, that which is complete perfection, that which has different names like Tao, Aum, INRI, Sein, Allah, Brahma, God, or better said, Gods, etc., etc., etc., could in no manner be something without mercy, cruel, tyrannical, etc. Due to all of the above, I emphatically repeat that Karma is negotiable.
It is possible to alter our own destiny because: “When an inferior law is transcended by a superior law, the superior law washes away the inferior law.”
In altering the cause, one alters the effect. “The lion of the law is over-come with the balance.” If on one tray of the scale we place our good deeds and on the other we place the bad, either both trays will weigh equally, or there will be some imbalance. If the tray of bad actions weighs more, we must place good deeds on the tray of good actions with the purpose of inclining the balance in our favor; thus we cancel Karma. Perform good acts in order to pay your debts; remember that one does not only pay with pain, one may pay by doing good.
Now you will understand my good friends, how marvelous it is to do good. Without doubt, right thought, right feeling, and right action are the best form of negotiation.
We must never protest against Karma; the important thing is to know how to negotiate.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
Fortunately, karma is negotiable, it is not a blind mechanic.
When we have cosmic capital, it is possible to pay our debts.
"Do good deeds so that you pay your debts."
"The Lion of the Law is defeated with the Scale". In the cosmic scale are the good deeds on one plate and the bad deeds on the other plate. The plate of good deeds must be more loaded, otherwise if the plate of bad deeds is more loaded then we will pay karma with pain and suffering.
"He who has what to pay, pays and does well in business."
"When a lower law is transcended by a higher law, the higher law washes away the lower law."
Our good deeds with love towards others will be the higher law that will transcend or wash away the lower law.
