Karma or just simply drama?

 

"Like gravity, karma is so basic we often don't even notice it."

(Sakyong Mipham)

A Karma Symbol

The word karma means action, work or deed and can refer to the spiritual principle of cause and effect.   Intent and actions of an individual can influence the future of that individual.  Its important to remember that in a moral and philosophical sense karma is neither good nor bad, but only interpreted as such by those affected by the actions of the events in their lives. Karma also has a connection with reincarnation, for example something you do bad now, could hurt you in a hundred years time as somebody else.

Many different people have their own thoughts when it comes to the reality of Karma. A lot of people have opinion that karma exists while others think it does not.  Some people think that bad people or criminals just escape from punishment. But they are not. They will be punished in their next life. Good people may face problems because of karma from their past lives. But in next life, they will be well treated and rewarded.

There are people who think that we just want to believe that what goes around comes around because we hate the feeling that there is no cosmic justice in the world, or that someone wouldn't get what they deserved, either good or bad.

Maybe karma can only be deemed real if you can capture some evidence of it happening, and be able to determine that it is the only explanation for whatever occurred.  Perhaps numerology can help to show whether or not we came into our current life with karma issues? Numerology can show that during our evolutionary path of many incarnations, we have accumulated a wealth of wisdom, but have also made mistakes or have sometimes abused the gifts we've been given.  In order to make things right, we can take on an additional burden in order to learn a particular lesson that we failed to learn in previous lifetimes. In Numerology terms, this is called Karmic Debts.
