'Does the source of the money I earn affect the health of me and my family members?' - A brother asks us through our contact form. This is a general question. However, in this case, we concluded that the source of money he is earning (market share investing) is pure. There was nothing that was morally wrong. Thus we give the understanding of Law of Karma and some guidance to solve the present condition.

I am in Share market business where I earn money by doing Trading... someone's loss is your profit. 50% of my earning or profit from share market goes to my trust. My trust works for the distribution of free medicines to poor patients in hospitals... one of my children has started getting seizure problem (epilepsy). She got 3rd episode in this month. I am now feeling guilty and unable to continue my work.

Dear Divine Brother
We will also provide the exact answer to your innocent question. But also know that you yourself if think with a clear mind, will understand some secrets of Karma.
Firstly, it is a very good task you are doing - by arranging for free medicine for poor people. This earns you many blessings... Become aware that it is God who inspires us and makes us to do good karma. You would know that mostly in our Bharat (India) people start their business in the name of God or Goddess, whichever they believe in. This is to show that he is the support of our life. YOU ALSO DO THE SAME. Continue this good work, but now in the name of ''Shiv Baba''. You may give your name, but consider that it is Shiv baba's task and you are only an instrument/medium.
So you do business. It is not cheating anyone or willingly making a loss to someone. No. You are only investing your money and earning a profit. Everyone involved in 'share market' knows that they will either get a good profit or a good loss. So they take this risk. If they go in loss, it is nothing to do with your karma...
We hope this is clear at first.
Yes as long as you keep good relation with others and not do any cheating, this business is purely a business.
For Your Child
Daughter is having an illness which you think might be because of your business. No - this is not.
Every soul gets the result of its own actions (karma). Your karma cannot affect anyone else. That soul (your child) also have her own past life karmic account which can cause illness. Karmic accounts has to settle in one or other way. Plus the present atmosphere lacking clean air and water also affects the body.
On other hand, the food which is prepared at your home is earned by your business. That food is eaten by the family. Food must be earned with clean karma. That is - money with which you buy the food, should be earned by righteous path and to earn that money you must not damage anyone. This is the rule. One should not become greedy and not take risks in order to get more money... This simplifies our life...
If your wealth is clean, the vibrations in food are pure and so good will be the health of family members. TAKE CARE OF THIS.
