    Do you believe in 'What goes around, comes around?'

    Straight from the Bible, the saying is as old as time itself. GALATIANS 6:7-9, We Reap What We Sow.  Nowadays translation is, We weep what we sow.  It all is referring to, 'What we do yesterday will come back to us today'.  Like planting seed for harvest later.  But it means the same as the saying, 'What goes around comes around."  I've seen this come true over and over again.  For every wrong or right we do to others we can expect it back, often with great gratitude, but more often, with great quilt and discomfort.  We should be kind to others if we want them to be kind to us.

    Yes, this is the Law of Karma. Other religions that do not believe in this law, there is the doctrine of "you shall reap what you sow."

      Absolutely right. And I have seen it happen so many times in life that I really am a firm believer of this law.

      How does that apply to a young child who is murdered or molested? What on earth did (they) do to "reap" that?
      This notion that everything bad that happens to us is due to our actions is nonsense. Sometimes bad things happen to good people.

    I believe no matter how good you are or how bad you are there will be both sunshine and rain in your life.
    A person who has never stolen anything in their life may have their car stolen or home broken into. Is that Karma?
    It's human nature to attempt to explain why bad things happen to us.
    Several years ago the actor Marlon Brando was discussing the suicide of his daughter.
    He said: "The messenger of misery stopped by my house today."
    The reality is all of us are going to be visited by misery and painful experiences if we live long enough. There will be failed relationships, heartache, deaths of loved ones, loss of jobs, financial strain, and sometimes we will be victimized by others along the way.
    That's life!
    Instead of believing in karma or "what goes around comes around" I believe "Everyone gets their turn." You just learn to ride the waves.
    No one lives a life that is filled with only sunshine and rainbows!
