There are Indian religious schools that teach about karma. Westernized the concept is simplified as a rule of cause and effect, reaping what you're sowing, doing good and therefore experiencing good and vice-versa doing bad and experiencing bad.
There is also: good karma, bad karma and neutral karma (not to be neglected, you don't have to be all good and some good can even be bad, think helper-syndrome and/or self-exploitation).
Former Buddhist here (family’s religion) and I’ve always doubted the whole karmic retribution thing until I’ve seen what happened to people who wronged me (in this life, current timeline). Mom was extremely abusive and violent towards me and my brother, dies in a car crash. Ex gf who was abusive, triggered my panic attacks, and mocked the people with mental illnesses now has developed anxiety and has panic attacks from time to time. Do you think these are legit examples of karma irl?
I don't rely on karma. If it's worth it I'll try to have my revenge, if it's something petty I'd rather forget it, why waste your energy on dumb shit
Uhh alright, I shall humbly share some of what I know:
So the word Karma, comes from Kar(action) and Man(to think). What does this mean?
As it's known, in many creeds there is the idea that God is everything and everyone, and so we are god experiencing ourselves. That would also mean that we have the ability to co-create the world together.
And Karma is exactly that: The result of our thoughts in the world. So if for example one says: "Oh I want a house", well because of your own divine ability to create (although most are unware of it while living human lives), you will start shaping the world so an opportunity of getting that which you wanted, comes. Now we tend to think of Karma as some divine judgment, because everything to exist needs it's positive and negative. So you get to have a house, but now you have to take care of it, so if something breaks, you have to pay. If a better job opportunity comes in another city, you have to stay because your house has a heavy tax connected to the bank, and all the many chores that owning a house can entail.
And all of this comes from a single thought. This is why they say "Becareful of what you wish"
Now you can learn to better handle your ability to create by becoming conscious of your unconscious thoughts, and that is when you transform your Karma in Dharma, from Dhar(to hold) and Man(thought), so it's basically the thoughts you are already aware of and thus are unlikely to come bite you later like the unconscious ones.
I think I am being humbled by the universe. For saying and doing bad things. I believe this is part of everyone’s path. Little instances only known to them. There is not a single bad thing I’ve ever done that hasn’t come back to bite me somehow. Gets me to get my act together. I feel so embarrassed of myself.
I am currently in a bad karma cycle. I am washing away my sins of a bad karma that I am facing for things I did/said. Similarly, I recently put out some bad energy into the universe that I know will cycle back to me eventually. I just want to start my good karma cycle. I am ready to wash away my bad karma and start fresh again.
