Question of the day.

Do you believe in karma? Why?

My answer:

No. The simple answer is because I am Christian, and karma is a strictly hinduist/buddhist concept so it just doesn’t go hand in hand with my beliefs. I don’t believe in reincarnation, and those two thiings are strongly connected, so I can’t believe in karma either. I believe in that good may attract good, and evil may attract evil, but I don’t see it as some sort of a cosmic law which occurs in every single situation, I don’t think it’s something that happens automatically as a rule. Here on Earth, I think this happens mostly due to the fact that our actions usually trigger reactions of others, so if we do something good to them, they may feel inclined to express their gratitude and do something good to us, and if we do a lot of good to a lot of people, naturally we may be experiencing a lot of good in our lives, same goes for evil. But it’s not some process that’s always bound to occur and that always whenever you do something good or bad, it’ll come back to you. People do get away with evil actions and have successful lives, or good people have miserable lives, at times. As for the afterlife, I believe it’s God who judges us after our death, our good deeds and our sins, our choices in life, so what our afterlife ends up being like is the result and consequence of our choices here in this life. God can also reward us during our lives on Earth, if we do a lot of good in our lives, or He can allow difficult things to happen to us which may end up making us better people than we were before. But again, that’s not a rule in this world and there are plenty of very good-natured people, even saints throughout history who had done a whole lot of good deeds yet have suffered incredibly their entire lives.

What about you? 🙂

  1. I kind of believe in it like you do, as being an energetic attraction. I.e., if you go around mistreating everyone, then it follows logically that everyone would quit liking you, right? But I don’t believe in karma in the sense that there’s some sort of cosmic scales of justice. I WANT To believe that, and sometimes I tell myself it’s true, but I don’t think I believe it deep down. I think it’s too often that bad people win and good people don’t. I do however think that God has a higher understanding of what we’ve been through and how we’ve tried to be good in ways that other people don’t value. Like, ridiculously, God appreciates that I actually stop at stop signs (unlike every other driver in my neighborhood). I’m not sure, though. It’s 5:00 in the morning here in Louisville, and I’ve got a bad case of sleeplessness. 😮 Yikes!

      1. Thank you, that’s very kind! 🙂 I fell back to sleep right away, but I just now woke up past 2:00 PM. I might have to take some supplements for sleep tonight, but at least I’m well-rested!! YAY!

  2. I believe karma is energy. What we choose to distribute gets charged within us and attracts more to us. Though some do evil and appear successful, the energy they carry for the deeds they perform stick with them, even if denied. Eventually, Life will work out to bring balance back to the greater good.
