In tests of power, karma is moving instantaneously. If you gain a lot of power, and generate activities with positive benefit and dharmic activity, you immediately get the impact of the use of that power. If you use that power selfishly, that karma also arises instantaneously, and it will essentially destroy you. When people come into power, you’ll often see that they will seem to prosper for awhile. But secretly, they’re making one selfish choice after another, and the power is just regulating that, amplifying that, and making it instantaneous. Before very long, you’ll just see that they’re being overtaken by calamity. The calamity didn’t come out of nowhere. It was the fruit of their choices, being driven by power.
