Do you believe in Karma? And why?
Christians believe that after this earthly life the Abrahamistic deity sends our soul to Heaven or Hell, depending on our behaviour during our earthly life.
Turning yourself to the Hindu religion doesn't seem to free you from morality, since the Hindu's know such thing as Karma.
Do you believe in Karma? Can you explain why?
I do believe in Karma. Jesus told us of that too in a few ways. One is You Shall Reap What Ye Sow and Do Unto Others As You Would Want Then To Do Unto You. Tehre are many different kinds of Karma though that most people do not realize.
1. Instant Karma...what you say or eat, if it isn't right or if it is right, you will get the effect right back right then or in a few seconds.
2. Longer term, such as what you think and the emotions that you put behind them will come into fruition later down the road...a month, a year or years from this moment.
3. The one about after death, it will come on another lifetime and you will have to deal with your choices that you had in this lifetime.
Re-Incarnation is NOT coming back into the same body to live it again. It is coming back in a similar body in a similar life to learn the other side of your actions that you took in a previous life. Be careful with this life and be good to all because if you don't it will come back to you, one way or another.
You suppose it works like an Universal Law of Cause and Effect?
I think that's exactly how it works, Buildreps. Now I feel like my comment on this is simply redundant. Smh, it is what it is.
Yep it does. It doesn't have thoughts of it's own, it is just a re-action to an action.
Yes and I cannot explain at this time. I simply today have faith and trust in the larger principal without seeking to understand. I just accept for now while keep on keeping on. :-) I will copy/paste this in my to ponder file for maybe writing further on as a hub one day. Thank you for bringing this thought process to ponder today Buildreps.
I don't really believe in Karma and I try not to even think about it. If I do something good for someone else, it is not because I am supposed to, but because I want to. I am a Christian, but I don't do good deeds to get into heaven and I don't do them so I will get something good in return.
I don't believe in Karma that reaches beyond this earthly life. But like Lady Guinevere stated there is some logic to a sort of cause and effect - you reap what you sow. I'm interested in all believes and opinions about this issue. Thanks BizWhiz!
@Biz, That is not how it works. I don't know exactly what you are talking about or have been told, but it is right there in the Bible and it does not state weather it be good or bad, just consequences for thoughts and actions.
I don't believe in Karma. I think there is no such a thing for it is only a sort label or brand-named by most of members of the religious sect. What important is faith which determine mainly the ‘Will of God’.
Isn't the Will of God without cause, fandz legaspi?
There is cause for a reason why God creates human. He does not want His children to become wicked.
Then why did he make them wicked? He set them up and that is the whole crux. He is evil!
I think there's some confusion between the Monad and the Demiurge here in the comments.
I see you met our old friend Leibniz already, Trevor. That's great. Then you're on your way to find the Universal Truth.
Not really. I believe no matter who you are or what you do you will experience both good and bad events over time. We all get our turn.
Whether one believes in Karma or religion as a way to keep them from behaving negatively is their own personal choice.
Bad things sometimes happen to good people and the bad guy sometimes gets away. That's life!
I look at Karma as the spiritual equivalent of the physical law of cause and effect. I can't deny that pushing a book (cause) will make it move across a table (effect). I also can't deny that if I treat someone poorly and it diminishes them somehow (cause), something that I deserve will happen to me, from stubbing a toe to something far worse, like my girlfriend leaving me (effect).
Actions on the material plane have reverberations on planes we cannot immediately or easily sense, and those echoes come back. Jung would call it synchronicity. I call it spiritual physics.
That said, a lot of "spirituality" is simply a complex psychological function. Does my belief in Karma make Karma work in my life? Quite possibly. Bad things may happen to me when I do something bad to another because my subconscious guilt is subtly sabotaging me.
Either way, whether internal or external, yes, I believe in Karma.
Yes, we may nit even realize what hit us. If you do not believe in karma, you will pass it off as bad luck. However is that not karma. I would say so.
I will use OJ Simpson for example; he was acquitted of the murders of his ex and her bf.
He laughed walking out if court. Not to worry, he then got caught and ended up in prison anyway. He is a nobody now.
His past came back to bite him worse than the first round he probably would be out by now.
Just my opinion.

This should be an easy question to answer for those who have done their homework.It provides many, but the operative word is "greatest." The answer may be educational to many, to others common knowledge.
