Can someone please give a short explanation of difference between Karma and 'pay back is a b!tch'...thanks

i thought Karma was an afterlife kind of thing. how you did in this life determines what you have in next

i thought pay back is a bitch- is you get what you give (in same life)
---------------------------------------

anyone that can explain it better- please do so
it is starting to annoy me too...LOL x 100

  • You pretty much covered it - karma, cycle from life to life.

    Every action has an equal and opposite reaction - basic laws of physics.

  • Karma accumulated in this life won't take affect until the next life.

  • It kind of depends on which philosophy you ask. However, overall karma is a cause and effect sort of process. All of our actions (and thoughts) in this life (and our previous lives) will add up to determine the course of our next life. The goal of course being to have the soul released from the cycle by attaining nirvana (a kind of enlightenment).

  • the way i understand it, karma can come back to spank your ass anytime she wants. its not exclusive to the afterlife, but in this life also.

  • i guess my interpretation of it is different. say for example, my oldest's dad abandoned her from birth. he is now, 6 years later, having a hard time supporting his new two kids and wife, has had to uproot his life to move away and can never catch a break. i assumed this was a karmic reaction for being an asshole father.
