:The third level is the world beyond cause and effect.
Does that mean that one is completely beyond karma once
one attains that level?
One doesn't have the past or future karma anymore, but
will still have the fixed karma. Some of our Quan Yin
Method practitioners have already attained the third level,
and they are still in this world because of their fixed
karma. But when they meditate or sleep, they are in the
third level; this is just like having dual citizenship
in this world.
