Questions from a seeker

Very good questions and difficult to answer too...
Here is my perspective

The wheels of time are churning and what we deserve will be ours.
Earnestness though can be very persuasive.
THe time of death is certainly critical, if we are a true devotee all our life, the time of death will lead us to be naturally drawn to HIM.
But, pretty good chance the attachments and desires too might overwhelm the senses.
Hard to know what goes on at the time we depart this world.
Moksha is only a single thought away - we give up the ego, give up the I, and we achieve Moksha
In essence, we are only a single breathe away from Moksha
Earnestness is a huge plus
Regarding Karma - yes, definitely the arrows that karma throws at us, their efficacy can be reduced.
THat is why our scriptures are so revered, there is always a solution to a misery.
Either the pain can be diminished, or in some cases, the strength to bear the pain is provided.

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
