    Is it that bad deed brings bad results or is it more what kind of world do you want to live in?

    Believe in karma, what goes around comes around. we are not always there to see and know but good seeds grow in blessings a thousand, bad seeds the same. I have seen it so many times, so many did right, had a really hard time and made it, so many did wrong and harvested the poison they are sown.
    Be aware and remain blessed. Love to you and all

    Good or bad for whom?
    Good deeds have often been the route to ruin for many.
    Bad deeds have led to great fortune and power just as many times.
    The concept of good vs bad is largely a matter of who is doing the looking.
    The inquisitors of Spain would have told you they were working for the powers of good, if you were a victim you might not believe that.
    The American people were led to believe that entering and fighting the Vietnam war was a good deed, of course it wasn't and hundreds of thousands of innocent people's lives were ruined.
    The current government has and continues to tell us that the Iraq war was a good deed, after all we got rid of Saddam?
    But most people in Iraq will tell you that it is a horrible thing that America has / is doing. They will say that under Saddam they had stability and functioning utilities. Transportation and hospitals worked. It goes on and on but the bottom line is that over 1.5 Million lives have been ruined abroad and hundreds of thousands of American lives have been torn asunder and for what?
    America is less safe than it was on 9/10 and we have millions more enemies.
    The same hold true for Karma. For everyone who has had their evil doings come back to haunt them more have felt nothing but wealth and power.
    It would be wonderful of there were some great pendulum that balanced everything out, but there isn't.
    This doesn't mean that we should all go out and do bad things and in those things happen to be illegal there is plenty of reason not to.
    We should all do good things simply because they are good things but don't expect any return on the investment.

    Results--if you mean "pragmatic, real-world results"--are not always in line with intentions.  If they were, then life would be much, much, simpler, and we would be living in some other world.

    On the other hand, to deliberately choose to behave badly always has a debasing effect on the character of the person so choosing--and conversely for good choices. 

    In that sense, I do think karma is unavoidable.

    of course good deeds always bring good result and bad one bring bad result. Works are like seeds, as we do likewise we get.

    I believe that good deeds bring good things to my life and vice versa. This is the rule of the Universe!

    good deeds do bring good results many times but bad deeds bring out the worst in almost all the cases, I believe.

    The basic thought behind this philosophy is that when we do good deeds we are happy and satisfied and when we do bad deeds , we know in our mind what we have done. And as one of the hubbers- Borsia have mentioned, who decided good and bad? i would say you by your own-self decide good and bad. Your heart and you mind immediately will tell you if you have done wrong or right. And it is all in psychology that because you know you have done bad thing, you would have to pay for it someday. And when you do a good deed , you know that someday when you need someone or God he may turn to you. But yes in Hindu sacred book          " BhagvadGeeta" it is said that do your work and do not wait for results. I know being human this is difficult.so at the end of the day your mind and your heart give suggestion to you and you get the result accordingly.

    Many people see good things being sown but few see the reaping. This is because  you need eyes to see what is good

    I believe that what ever we cause, is returned to us multiplied. So , I prefer to do good when possible, as possible.

    Good = Good, Bad = Bad.

    Yes, generally good deed brings good result, bad deed brings bad result. But it is not a hard and fast rule.

    Having first hand knowledge that you have done or about to do a good or bad deed does not bring you anything!  The fact that you have done it (GOOD OR BAD DEED) without thinking or looking to receive anything in return means everything.  Thats when you'll begin to understand all of "your results"

    In regards to what borsia has written, when you do "good" for "bad" minded individuals you will indeed suffer.  So go figure, be in the know of who you look out for as well as entertain.  As for "bad" deeds being successful, go figure, you have used your energy and source to promote and "support" and promote so what do you expect.

    the result is on you and how you feel about or who get hurt or help by it, for most deed people aren't around to see unless you have something to do with the end. to steal is wrong, but if staving, who to say. to hurt some one it wrong but if you seen that person hurting one of your. same
