    Karma

    I know we've done this before but It was a while ago.

    Do you seriously believe In Karma ? Do you believe the A hole's and b.itches In life get rewarded with a thoroughly miserable existence for their actions ?

    I've had a couple of Instances of late. It's always been the one's who I thought at some time ' Karma's going to get you'...

    I'm not talking about revenge here, just their own doing.

    Yes, I've been fortunate to witness the misfortune.

    I think it's so complex...a person may behave in an unpleasant way but, because we don't know their whole story, we don't really know what personal horrors may have contributed to their actions. That's not to say that I haven't hoped at times that people might "pay" for the hurt they've caused. But I think the idea of "karma" is rather overused and could be seen as a form of manipulation.

    Re: Karma

    I know it's supposed to act in a positive for a negative way, but I've always viewed it that for every positive action you take, you will be rewarded with something positive.

    Some may think of the negative action when doing something positive for someone else is the negative against yourself, but whenever I do something like that I get a personal feeling of satisfaction, so maybe that could be the Karma in itself, although it's good to believe that is you do something, with the best of intentions, that makes you feel bad, then it shall be balanced by something good happening to you.

    I know that in reality it's all superstition, but it's one of those things to be able to looks back & think "That's Karma for such-and-such" when something good happens.

    Re: Karma

    It just seems to me that some people ' get theirs'. I am not talking about a person who has just made bad choices In life but hose who deliberately seek to hurt or destroy another human being simply because they can.
    During my arrest and trial, police broke Sub Judice law to libel me to reporters for no other reason than to squash growing support. What they didn't know was those reporters were reporting back to me and I knew exactly who It was. As my arresting officer left the police force, she made a false claim to the IPCC that my local police were giving me Inside Information In an attempt to smear local officers and myself again. However, the IPCC didn't believe her for one minute.
    Then the trolling started and veiled threats to my friends. She was then visited by my local police under ' Malicious Communication' laws and Harrassment laws.
    They had the evidence because again, people were reporting back to me and sending those e mails on..
    Then she gets a job In the MOD... within weeks, she's making malicious false accusations about co-workers that resulted In a government enquiry that concluded she was not a person who could be relied upon to tell the truth. ( All documented on the net ). A police officer's job Is purely to gather Information, there was absolutely no need for the rest of It.
    So, perhaps now she's a lonely Individual with zero job prospects... but people like that always blame someone else for their own disasters.

    I posted this thread due to another Instance Sunday morning. I used to work with a young guy called John. I absolutely despised him. For ' fun ' he would deliberately mow down cats In the street, even mounting pavements late at night In order to do so. He'd then come Into work the next day bragging about how many he'd maimed or killed and he thought It was hilarious. I hadn't seen him for 16 years and Sunday there he was selling old car radio's at the Car Boot sale.
    Got chatting and he whined on about how the wife had left him, how she won't let him see the kids, how he can't get a job and he's now homeless. Usually, I would give any homeless person a few quid but I'm standing there thinking ' **** you John... Karma's a b.itch.

    Maybe Karma Is more about the type of person who Is just so rotten to the core, they are their own undoing.

    Re: Karma

    Is it karma though, or more about what you give out you get back?

    I 'like the idea' of karma, for instance loving someone who messes you around being unfaithful. Then watching that person go on to find another person they totally fall for and become suddenly faithful to. Then that other person goes on to be unfaithful to them. Bit like they get a taste of their own medicine and that makes you feel they got their comeuppance really. But that can also be reverted back to they got back what they gave out really. Which I think comes under the bracket of the 'Law of Attraction'.

    Fourpart, you say that you can look back and see something as karma when something good happens. That's a good point and probably the first time I've known anyone mention good karma. Karma is generally seen as a negative payback and only mentioned when something bad happens to a person that is perceived as bad or has done something bad.

    It's like the characters in The Water Babies - Mrs Do-as-you-would-be-done-by & Mrs Be-done-by-as-you-did.

    Re: Karma

    I believe In the power of the mind and positivity so I am very aware that good things happen to the good.
    Good people get good things back I hope because their positivity tends to give them empathy, sympathy, compassion and kindness for others without being taken for a sucker.
    When others see that empathy, kindness etc, they warm to that person and thus In return, they bring about good things for them.
    Likewise, when someone Is rotten to the core, they generate a feeling of negativity that turns others away from them and then the bad times begin for them

    I agree with the complexity part, also agree that karma is overused, especially when it comes to bad karma.
    Still pondering the manipulation part

    Manipulation...in that it's similar to "be good or the bogey man will get you". So with karma it's implying that if you do something "bad" you WILL get repaid in kind, and, of course, the opposite. But either way, for me, it implies manipulation of one's behaviour by others or by oneself.
