Do you believe in karma?

Do you think karma actually exists, or is is something made up by a parent a long time ago to make the kids behave?
If you do believe in karma which effects karma more, motive or action? For instance if you do the right thing but your motive is bad does that create bad karma? If you do a bad thing but your motive is good how does that effect karma?

  • I sure hope there is such a thing as karma. I know someone that I would love for karma to take a bite out of!

  • I am not sure how much I believe in Karma. I'd like to believe in it, since some people are so nice and some so mean that it would seem fitting that they get what they deserve, or what goes around comes around as the saying goes. I think that it is possible that our behavior and intentions draw certain energies toward us and that a person with bad intentions draws bad energy.

  • I think it's a nice thought—you want to think that people who behave badly will get theirs in the end, but I think it's a childish hope. Some bad people will be rewarded heavily, some really kind people will have nothing but bad luck.

  • I'm a true believer in what goes around, comes right back to you 10 times worse. I've seen it happen to so many people in my life. I try to do right by people and treat them the best i can, but the majority of people I've seen experiencing karma are men who cheat on their wives. I see most of these men lose everything due to their infidelities. What is in the dark, will always come to the light, eventually you will pay.

  • Karma is a religious concept that refers to actions and intentions in this life having an impact on the next life. Parents didn't make it up. It is in mentioned in religious texts in nearly all of the major religions. People who do not believe in a next life need not worry about it. Karma isn't "instant."

    For people who believe in reincarnation, karma dictates what type of vessel they will enjoy in the next life. Someone like Hitler would become a tapeworm, while someone like Mother Theresa would be sent to join the ascended complete spirits.

  • A tapeworm, where do you you get this stuff?

  • Hitler= Tapeworm = crap eating parasite that everyone wants to kill.... not a big logical leap, I thought.

    Hindu karma does include people being reincarnated into animals.

  • Hitler, a tapeworm? ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaa. And yes I believe in karma. Do good and good will come to you. I tell my girls the world has a way of getting around. In a way to me, its the same as, treat her how you want to be treated.
