Definitely, we will reap what we sow. Sow in love and compassion, this is what we will reap. In other words, what goes around, comes around.
I believe it is "you reap what you sow" and that depends on what what you are sowing. If you sow iniquity, you shall reap sorrow (Proverbs 22:8), if you sow righteousness, reap mercy (Hosea 10:12).
You can also sow the word of God, but another may reap the benefits or you might harvest the fruits of hard work others have sown before you (John 4:37).
yes definitely, whatever we have done in our past, our present is the result of that.
If you plant a good seed, good fruits will grow, but if you plant a bad seed? Karma is done in this life time.
Why not next lifetime? Aren't the spiritual lessons even more profound when you don't remember your crimes?
So God will pour His vengence on man twice is what you are saying?
It is so true and hurtful when you are going through a difficult situation and you don't know why.
Yes but not necessarily in some mystical way. If we do to others as we would want them to do to us, that is treat them well, we will be treat well by them in retrospect. If we are rude and discourteous, we can expect people to respond to us in a similar negative manner.
Also if we 'sow' a positive mental attitude, we are more likely to act in a positive manner, which will help us to succeed in life's trials and adventures. If we believe we are losers, then we wont take chances, risks and opportunities, and will find it difficult to apply ourselves to some problem or issue.
If we believe we are worthless sinners deserving hell then this is going to negatively affect our self esteem and sense of worth.
No. Only successful people believe this. You can do EVERYTHING right, be upstanding, morally good, "a wonderful wife and mother," and still your world can come crashing down. I'm sorry to tell everyone who feels that all the good things in their life are a result of all the noble, righteous acts, disciplined, courageous acts they did and because of the difficult choices they have made, but others make noble and righteous choices, maybe even more righteous and nobler than yours, and life breaks them. The key is to continue sowing AS IF there will be no flood or drought or frost that wipes out all the lovely fruit you planted; to continue painting on your canvas AS IF no one will ever come and tear it up; to go on producing, striving, seeking EVEN WHEN you are discouraged or dismayed, because to do otherwise is to forget that there is ALWAYS re-planting, re-painting, and that it is the over-coming of adversity that is the strength of the human spirit. But to believe that your lovely crop is all of your own doing is to diminish others who have worked as hard and as long and as lovingly as you did and to ignore the fact that sometimes fate, of luck, or Providence, has a great deal to do with your success. Instead of believing that you have reaped what you have sown by your own actions, it is better to understand others' struggle and to acknowledge that "there, but for the grace of God, or some twist of fate, go I."
If you think like a physical being, then karma would never make sense. But a spiritual being knows, if you take the time to listen to that quiet, still voice within. The sins of the "fathers" and yet only the guilty will pay.
lone77. I'm sincerely happy for those who find joy in the spiritual. The physical world is all I care to relate to. I've been the spiritual route; I choose the "noise". I love the world, my family - I love it all and feel humbly grateful for being.
Yes, I defiantely do think this is true. If we look back on our own lives, we can see clearly how the mistakes we have made contributed, mostly, to difficult times ahead. Where we were positive with what we 'sowed' most of the time, we 'reaped' the benefits. Life always has a way of catching up with you, so if you sow as many positive things as you can, even although you may not get immediate benefits, this will happen one day. Of course the opposite is also true, continually sow bad things, then all this will catch up with you one day.
Nope, if we all reaped what we sowed then politicians would all be burning alive in a pit full of sewage by now.
They have their own way of thinking. How a man think and what he sow in his mind is what is going to reap.
But CS, they'll get that next lifetime. And if we forget to serve others in this life, we may end up following those politicians.
They live like kings and queens and do nasty things. This is something to think about! Thank you for your answer.
Crescentskies, Not hardly, God punishes and rewards as an eye for an eye
and a pit of sewage does not match the action
If this means the same as what goes around comes around, then yes I believe it is so. I know people who are treated by their adult children exactly as they treated their own parents. It's a sorry awareness, but true. We really should do onto others as we want done onto us.
yes definitely too. What you did in the past ( if bad) you will get retribution in future, maybe not on you but your future generations. Never do bad things to others, God is everywhere. He has many "ninja" you know!
Definitely.It is a law of cause and effect.If you are nice to someone, that someone will treat you back the same.Same as when you treat someone bad, you will be treated badly as well.
I do, indeed...........but you may not see the same fruit coming back to you.
It very much true. Sow in your hearth anger and loneliness and you're reap pain and agony. While if you sow happiness, harmony and love, expect the unlimited flow of joy and abundance.
So long as we are living "of" the physical world, we will obey its laws of action-reaction. Only by lifting ourselves out of the physical and back to the spiritual can we ever hope to be free of such laws.
It seems that the only way we can be free is to realize that we are spiritual children of God and that selfishness (ego) and everything borne out of it (scarcity, envy and the like) is the wrong state to be in. We need to dedicate ourselves to helping others.
Gotcha. Thanks for reminding me of this very crucial and important principle that should be the main focus of our lives. Oftentimes, i forget this .God bless.
Helping others in need is the greatest action we can do as spiritual children of God. Those other negative feelings I call them cancers of the soul. Thank you for responding.
Absolutely, it's called Karma. I've seen it in action in my life and others. Karma can be good or bad, it depends on what you sow (your actions)

What is karma? Can we change our karma? Do we even know our own karma?

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?
