Any thoughts on karma, miner?

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).

OP further commenting: I like to think it exists or not rule it out. It gives my life more meaning to believe in it.

I like to "collect" good karma sometimes by doing little good things or I think of karma sometimes when I do them in everyday life. Don't get me wrong. I'm not an especially good person. I have been working hard on myself in the last couple of months though.

One thought I had recently that felt very good is that I can quickly gain good karma if I want to by not only treating others well or fairly but also by treating myself well. I'm someone. My needs have to be taken care of. Doing that job and doing right by myself is a good deed. It should align with the rules of karma especially when self-care requires effort sometimes. This helps me trick self-neglect sometimes. I wanna practice such thoughts more.

No. You say that the concept is seen as just "cause and effect" but that's really what it is. Some people get away with vile things because they are good at hiding them. I guess you can say that karma has rewarded them for being clever enough to hide them successfully. But it still doesn't mean that karma rewards good people, unless you think that people like the Holocaust victims deserved what happened to them.

I know karmic retribution exists. I seen it but apparently, it's only "emotional."

Anonymous 3446

Interesting. Any examples?

Karma isn't real there are too many people who get away with too much evil

Anonymous 3453

As a concept it's hard to support if you don't also believe in reincarnation, as without reincarnation, all the retribution would have to come in the person's life to be valid. Reincarnation takes up the slack by just offloading any of the negative comeuppance you don't see onto the person's next life.

Sure. I seen things reverse themselves, etc. none caring exes get depressed. A ex who left me during my miscarriage is now divorced. A ex who attacked me is sucidial. People who ignored me in junior high are now being ignored themselves. Healthy people who were nasty to the sick are now sick themselves.

I donno, maybe it's cause or effect too.

not the one u replied to but i feel like an example of this is the richest people are often unhappy

Anonymous 3566

Good example. They spend a life in luxury to disguise their emptiness and secrets.

I know a lot of people say this and it's commonly the case in stories but I always felt like this opinion was just a cope from poor people. I know being rich isn't exactly all its cracked up to be, but to say poor people have it better couldn't be further from the truth.
Maybe rich people have their own troubles but they still don't have to worry about how they'll possibly afford bills for the month and that by itself is a much more comfortable life.
