Is it true that what goes around comes around?
Do you agree or disagree that how you treat someone will eventually come back to you?
I absolutely believe this with all of my heart. We will reap what we sow here on earth. I'm afraid the golden rule has been forgotten by so, so many.
Or as in your karma ran over my dogma? My critically thinking objective self says NO. However, I also tend to believe forces beyond objectivity and pure logic are at work in the cosmos. My spiritual self is open to karma and related phenomena.
No I do not believe this. While it makes a good theory, there are many bad people who never have it come back around. Honestly I just think it's another one of those sayings to bring comfort to those who don't want to accept the roughness of the world.
I think we would all like to think so, especially if we have been wronged. I think many people do not have conscience. THis could also be a positive thing. Lets say you were really good to someone and they abandoned you..hopefully they will realize how good and kind you were and come back. I know some pretty cruel people who seem to continue to reap much fortune. So lets say I hope so.
Reaping and sowing is a Biblical and a practical principle. Just ask any farmer, or anyone who has had their actions come back to bite them in the rear!
What goes around? Fate with a bagful of karma? Then comes around? Some Law of Soul that mysteriously balances out all our moral and immoral deeds? I don't believe in this merry-go-round, I think It's too much of a general statement to make sense for individuals and was invented to make those witnessing immoral deeds feel a little bit better.
That's not to say I don't want a world where positive actions and thoughts outweigh the negative - I strongly believe in that. But the idea that each one of us stores up goodness for some afterlife or karmic scale, or the more good we do the more good will come our way, just isn't rational. Many very good people have some rotten things happen to them - that is reality, nothing to do with karmic payback.
It would be nice if it worked that way, but I don't believe it does.
This goes along with 'your sins will find you out'. From experience, I believe we reap what we sow and whatever may have disappeared into memory rears itself at a certain moment, either for good or bad, but it definitely does come around! It's not a matter of an outer force, it's purely your own actions that cause a chain reaction and have some consequence at some time sooner or later.
Just like has been commented above, "You reap what you sow;" so, yes, how you treat others is how you will be treated in the future. I believe people have a hard time taking more responsibility for some (not all!) things that happen in their lives, and this may be one of those areas. Just because you don't see the effects of how you treat others manifest in your life right away doesn't mean you got away with it. You are not going to be picking tomatoes the day after you plant the tomao seed.

Do you believe that "what goes around comes around"?Is there some kind of cosmic justice in which good deeds are ultimately rewarded and likewise, bad deeds ultimately get punished? If you have been wronged by someone, do you feel the need to get revenge?

If someone says the words to you, 'what goes around comes around', how do you respond?Do you agree? Disagree? Totally dismiss it? And, I have heard this stated in different terms as well.
