Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed.
We are nothing if not structured patterns of energy.
The body is the matrix to hold that energy.
Structures tend to hold their shape.
The particular energy structure that constitutes the unique you at this moment is formed of all the choices/nonchoices you've made in your life:
whatever walk you've walked.
Nature recycles everything
, so why would consciouness be different?
So when the body dies, the loosely held structures of your spirit that depend upon the matrix of the body for their support are gone, only the core,
the most strongly held parts survive and find a new matrix. Over time the core self tightens, expands, and grows stronger and more self-aware,
eventually taking charge of it's own growth and the direction of that growth; evil works as well as good, maybe better.
Karma, I think, derives from a conflict between differing parts of our lives' histories, in the struggle between growing more good or more evil. Elder
spirits who have firmly and consistently chosen one path or another are untroubled by karma, I suspect. It is when we are as yet unfirmed (unfirmed is
a deliberate choice of words) in our patterns of being that the energies swirling around difficult choices or potential swing events allows for karma
to effect outcomes.
On some levels you might say that karma is a resolution of a quantum state.
