Personally I've never had good karma. Once I gave a homeless man five dollars only to be jumped soon after. Life's a bitch. There are mean and rude people out there who get everything they want. Yet some people are extremely nice and friendly and the worst shit happens to them. There's no sense in that. Fuck karma.
I think people are hesitant to believe in karma because it's too 'spiritual' or 'religious' or 'new age mumbo jumbo.' However, for the logical people out there, karma does exist in scientific terms. It's called Newton's 3rd law of motion. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That sounds very similar to the very definition of karma. Not trying to convince anyone--just putting it out there.
Karma is actually the patterns you create by your own choices and reactions. Given a certain situation you choose the same action/feeling each time. The things that happen to you are just opportunities to make better choices. Once you've changed your entrenched patterns of reactions that "bad karma" becomes good. You can see how easily you get into patterns and choose the same lousy reaction regardless of the poor outcome the last time. Now imagine how making that same bad choice for many lifetimes would create a rut that feels impossible to get out of. That's karma! It's actually more logical and more controllable than most people think. (Sgi-USA.org)
You have your beliefs, and he has his. Why do you have to make fun of him for it? YDI.
19 - Your words "invalid beliefs" made the rest of your point moot. When it comes to the intangible, who's to say what is invalid or not? Viewpoints like yours are why we still have wars between religions and fights against the progress of science. If more people said "live and let live," rather than "screw you, my opinion is more valid than yours," the world would be a much better place...
The way I see it, him tripping goes to build up bad things for a good karma pay out. I see karma differently than most. Good deeds will make less bad to happen to you. And bad things that happen, mean something good will happen in the future. Also, karma owned your ass OP
59-Exactly. It's not about whether one religion is better than the other. That's just ego driven finger-pointing and elitism. If I was a divine father, I would be angry that my 'kids' are ego-tripping and condemning each other instead of loving each other. I honestly think we, as a whole, are being separated by the trivialities of spirituality and beliefs. I mean, i think even Athiests believe in the golden rule. It's instinctual to love but I think we are programmed by society to separate and hate. And for what?
Of course atheist believe in the golden rule. At is core, Christianity, and all religions are simply a philosophy. It is these so called Christians, Muslims, and other followers of religion that twist it. I am an atheist but I agree with the values of Christianity. Not necessarily the people.
My sister believes she has bad karma. Every time she does something bad something worse happens to her.
