    Is there a basis for karma? Do you believe?

    It is the manifestation of the will of the righteous. We are God.

    it's a good concept, but wishful thinking. I don't believe in it any more than reincarnation.

    Karma isn't even what Americans perceive it to be. It isn't revenge or vengeance from the universe or God. It's more like a closed system ecology. You put evil in the world, and the world becomes more evil as a result. You pollute, and your environment is polluted. You help, and the world is better from being helped, and it's your world.

    Most people treat it like comp time. "If I work over this week, but don't get paid for it, I'll have time off banked for when I need it later." It's not like that in their theology.

    Reincarnation is similarly personalized and aggrandized in the ego-centric American mind. Everyone who is able to remember his former life is some tragic figure or some famous person, or powerful, etc. The cycle of rebirth is that you might not come back as human at all for many lifetimes. But being reincarnated as a slug isn't within the Western mind to accept.

    People make their own karma by the way they behave. It doesn't exist otherwise. Sometimes it comes to them. Sometimes it doesn't.

    Most cunts are miserable and stew in their own juices, basically reaping what they have sown. Fictionally Ebeneezer Scrooge is a good example. He thought that he was pretty cool and had no clue as to how miserable he was until he had a few visitors.
    I feel that it is wrong to sit around hoping that life will bite someone in the ass for being a jerk, we will be judged as we judge others. If we want others to pay, then we have to pay as well. If we forgive, we can be forgiven. It is a daily battle to forgive.
    I found that praying for a person makes it far easier to forgive that person.

    I think that at rare times karma comes through, but it is so rare you shouldn't count on it. Sometimes to a small amount we create our own karma by our vibes, but like I said it is rare.

    Re: Is there a basis for karma? Do you believe?

    I have seen loads of cases of karma 'rewarding' bad deeds
    Only the other day I watched as a guy pushed past a woman on the sidewalk only to trip off the curb a few steps later. Karma
    This week a car driver parked across the driveway of a property opposite me. Later that day he was clamped for failing to tax his car. Karma

    No it's all random. If anything it works backwards:

    I believe in karma in a non religious way - you often make your own luck and often your own bad luck too - what goes around comes around (usually)

    Re: Is there a basis for karma? Do you believe?

    It's real, but Americans, in my opinion, are not the most conscious peoples to ask this. I mean, people born in this country, in contrast to people who migrate to this. Ask Indians, Japanese, Chinese, or any Tibetan Llama this and likely the answer would be yes. But "basis" is a knowledge-based concept. Karma is birthed in spirituality. You might as well ask if people believe in God, and if they do, do they believe HE is aware of their thoughts - or of them, period. There are so many people who fervently profess claim, they not only believe in, but have reverence for God.
    Then, their child dies in a terrible accident, and they get angry with God, saying, "why did you allow this?" as if THEIRS is the only child who mattered. Those other billions of children? Who've died before theirs? They never lost faith in God then. It was only when it happened to them that they "lost faith." Their faith was false. It was bargaining: "If I believe in you, God, then I know you'll protect MY children/husband/family."
    Karma is quite real, and it doesn't matter if you believe in it or not. It's just that what people think of as "karma" is a cycle of transformation, a rebirth of one part of us (the mind, soul, ability to love, to assert oneself). Or, in some cases, the end of physical life.

    Karma is quite systematic, not random, as most would think (but have little actual knowledge experience, or "awakeness" to).

    Re: Is there a basis for karma? Do you believe?

    The problem with selling karma to the Western mind is that its fundamental premise fails. The popularity of Eastern Mysticism in the West is as a refutation of the dominant religion here, Christianity, or even the broader trinity of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

    19th century writers and philosophers embraced Hinduism and Taoism and Buddhism in headlong flight from the status quo, a monotheism suffused with judgment and punishment and rewards, and a God that micromanaged lives.

    Almost 200 years later, the revolution hasn't really taken off. There is a smattering of adherents who converted from Christianity, per capita, but they can't really propose karma as the rule of justice over generations as it is popularly misconstrued. And, without that, the Western mind struggles with the consequent nihilism that is left over, like the bitter coffee grounds at the bottom of the cup.

    Karma, when viewed as retribution for evil, returns one to the original problem, of judgment and eternal consequence. So, we perennially see the same thread on JUB about karma as vengeance, with the same responses, that it probably doesn't "work" because folks have seen too many of the wicked prospering, and too many of the innocent shot in their own homes, by both police and criminals alike.

    It's a metaphor. It is shorthand for communicating larger concepts, like "God", for instance. In this case, "Don't do shit. It's untenable, so you will suffer repercussions."

    At the end of the day it appears to be something we cannot investigate.
    Although I'm thoroughly unconvinced a soul exists. I think the concept of the soul runs into serious problems when we take brain injuries into consideration. Like what happens to Phineous Gage's soul after the 'higher reasoning' section of their brain was severely damaged? Would their actions have an impact on their reincarnation cycle? Or even in the Christian concept, can brain damage impact sin?

    short answer: does karma exist? for mortals, no. for the immortal, yes. very much so. the highly righteous even get front-row seats to karma, all the fucking time. in just the right place at just the right time to see your detractor get their comeuppance.

    This line of questioning is on religious terms. Faith should test against reason, not the other way round.
