    Do you believe in karma

    Do things happen for a reason?  Is your life the way it is because of your previous actions or is it all random?

    I personally don't. But I wouldn't exactly call it random either. I mean- it is random to some degree, but I really think when something happens for me, it's because I did something to make it happen- I made the choice.Or someone may have control over another person and the controlling person can make whatever events happen.

    A very small degree of your life may be "out of your control", but I never find myself explaining it away with "there's a reason for everything".



    Even with more serious events in my life, like with my grandfather's passing, I didn't think there was a reason he had to die when he did, just that it happened and it sucked.

    All things happen as the Universe directs.  All things are as they should be at any given moment.  There is no coincidence nor chance whatsoever.  The ebb and flow, give and take, earn and spend......are the continual flow of all energy.
    Karma is as Real as life itself......for all good or evil that is sent forth, so shall it return, within it's time, forgetting no gift nor curse.....recognizing even those faces which try to disguise themselves....for it is through the heart, we are known....and the  heart does not lie.            Great question.

    Yes, things happen for a reason. Everything has purpose. Some things happen as a result of our actions or choices; while others happen for reasons unrelated to anything that we have done or said. Then there are those times when we are affected by the choices and actions of others. Some people just call it LIFE.

    I believe in some sort of destiny and that we all get what we deserve. I am not entirely sure whether that is Karma.That particular word has been borrowed from the Eastern Tradition and is now primarily used by Americans in the South (I am only speaking from my perspective and how I view popular culture). It is an interesting concept but perhaps it teaches us to be careful about what we do because we could end up paying a big price.

    Yes, what goes around, comes around. Things may not always happen for a reason but it's ironic sometimes how they work out in the end.

    The universal law of cause and effect, karma, is a form of rough justice in the universe.  Not only that, but it's the means by which we learn that everything we do affects everything else in the cosmos; we are all interconnected; and that what we think, say, and act upon affects everything else in existence.

    You could say that it's also a means by which we learn lessons.  If we eventually realize that what we do to others comes back to affect our own lives, we will perhaps become more aware of our place in the bigger scheme of things.

    Oh yes we all will reap what we sow. we all have free will and we can't control what happens to us but what we can control is how we react.

    I honestly think EVERTHING is connected to karma.  I truly believe Christ died to show how karma is releated to reincarnation.

    yes i do believe in Karma. whatever we do it comes back to us. so i try to do everything positive and never consciously do anything negative to others. this simple and easy mantra i try to follow at least every day.

    Yes.

    I believe in Karma & Merits.

    It is the cycle of life - when you do something, your action will result in a reaction. It will come back to you again in a cycle.

    That's why we are taught to do good so you will not have bad things coming back to you.

    If you believe in spiritual plane and you soon will realize that your action can result with a reaction quicker than what you think.

    I do not believe in "karma".

    Having said that, the Bible states that if a person lives by the sword they will die by the sword. It also states that a man will reap the crop he sows, and will be judged in the same likeness as he has judged, etc.

    In Biblical terms, this is called the "Law of Reciprocity"

    Yes, I do. For the simple reason that it motivates and encourages you to always  be on the right path.

    I believe in karma to an extent. Are there are naturally occurring consequences for our actions? Yes. Is there some mythological force out there punishing us for our wrongdoings from adolescence? No.
    I believe that our decisions place us in certain circumstances that may leave us vulnerable for either bad or good things to happen. But, unfortunately, the bad people of the world, don't always suffer; the good people of the world don't always prosper. It's sad, but true. I'd like to believe in karma, but instead I believe in God who says that evil people will eventually be punished and the righteous will eventually come into glory. So, I guess, maybe that is the ultimate karma...

    As a historian, no I do not believe in Karma. I believe that people see coincidences all around them that they believe is Karma. Bad stuff happens to everyone! Oddly enough, though, I live my life as if there was Karma, hoping that good outweighs the bad.
