Q: How do I know what have I done in my past life, and what would happen to me in my   next life?
Master Joo's Answer:

There is a popular saying from the Buddha, "To ask for what you did in your past life, just watch what happened to you in this life. To ask what would happen in your next life, just watch what you have done in this life."

This proverb explained the rule of reincarnation and karma very well. Most people are still confused about it because they either fail to examine themselves, or they do not examine themselves thoroughly. If you can always reflect upon your own behavior and act accordingly, you would understand the principle of karma. If you can examine yourself very objectively and calmly, as if you are examining someone else, then you would clearly see where your karma is and what the consequences would be.

Let me use a simple metaphor - your eyes are located in front of you so it's easy to see what happens to the other people. It's not easy to see yourself. So you must always remember to examine yourself. Only when you are able to do that, then you would gradually and surely understand how your karma functions.
Q: If an outside spirit invaded me, how can I heal the problem myself?
Master Joo's Answer:

If you know for sure that an outside spirit has invaded your body and interfere with your life, then you must accept this as your karma and truly repent what wrong you have done in your past lives, and you should perform the 10-word chanting and dedicate the merits of the chanting to the spirit. This is to ask for the forgiveness of the invading spirit and request its kindly departure.

Another approach is to change yourself - the way you think, the way you perceive, and even your lifestyle. It would be helpful if you adopt a positive attitude toward life by actively reaching out to help others. Please remember that you must do the chanting yourself and not to pay other people to do it for you. For example some people would pay for monks to chant, to perform certain ceremony on your behalf; some would burn paper money and merchandise to the spirit. These would not work because the spirits that you have wronged in the past lives are not looking for such things.

In certain cases people are less sensitive about the invasion of an outside spirit. But his relatives and friends may have noticed the changes in him such as sudden change of mood and speech pattern, etc. In other cases people became restless. They could not sleep well, contradicted themselves very often, and began to hear strange voices or experience horrible thoughts. The voices would tell you what to do or what not to do, often against your own instincts. In more serious cases, these people cannot control their tempers, get angry easily, and seem to be restless and provocative. This is clear signs of invading spirits. these people should seek spiritual treatment as soon as possible. Prolonging the symptoms would often complicate the problem and become more difficult to treat later.

The more and more depression and temperamental behavior of the modern people are very likely caused by such spiritual invasion and interference.
Q: My child studies life science. How could he avoid using small animals in lab   experiments? And how to avoid the consequence of such killing from the spiritual sense?
Master Joo's Answer:

There are numerous such cases where people use animals in the lab experiments and received serious consequences from the spirits of such animals. For example, a young woman in a research institute suffered from serious case of "blood vessel neoplasm" because she had dissected too many earth worms. Another case involved a student in a medical school who has dissected a large number of frogs. I have treated several medical doctors in US who became seriously ill because they operated on laboratory mice.

How to avoid the consequence from the spiritual world? The best method is not to kill. All lives, all spirits, and all beings are equal in this universe. Mankind cannot sacrifice other lives for the benefit of themselves. the medical experiments using small lab animals are often cruel and inhumane. The small animals have no power to resist the human being, but their spirits can carry the deep resentment and hatred toward those person who performed the experiments. They will seek vengeance eventually. They would use whatever help they can get from the spiritual world to revenge their sufferings. They would strike at unpredictable time and with different form. The spiritual world has no time constraints. If you are in good overall condition, the revenge can wait. They would strike when you are most vulnerable.

Similar sayings exist in Buddhism, Taoism, and Christian documents. When your behavior shows signs of weakness, your karma are upon you. So we are racing against our karma. You may lead temporarily but it will catch up with you sooner or later.
