• It rains upon the just and unjust. It assume that out there, somewhere, is some Karma deity doling out shit scores, and you've just gotta suck it up and assume you're getting your just due from a previous existence. Without even once finding out what the hell it is you're being punished for. If the "Karma Deity" can remember the shit you pulled that you deserved- then the "Karma Deity" can be bothered to at least call ahead of time to let you know exactly what it is you're being smacked for.

    • Bootsiebaby
      What on earth does that mean? It makes absolutely no sense. Can you rephrase it in English, please?
  • You have answered your own question.
  • 3-4-2017 YEAH! If karma's a bitch then good people should get free puppies!
  • Not sure what karma being a "bitch" means, but there are several answer to the second part of your question. First of all what is "bad" and "good" would very much be in the eye of the beholder. So perhaps those you deem "good" are really not so good. Or what happens to them really not so "bad". Then many "good" people may not know enough to avoid many of the "bad" things. Also bad things can happen to anyone regardless like for instance natural disasters - to interpret them personally would be the height of arrogance.

      Very well said officegirl. We are not that important (except when we make ourselves so ).
  • Karma is a Hindu concept that has been appropriated and redefines in he western world. Neither version of Karma is real. The universe is blind to us. There's no force in it that renders justice.
  • not sure why
  • To build strength, to give us new perspective, to grow empathy for others, so we can hep others navigate the challenges of life we've successfully overcome, to grow humility, to teach us to reason and not to do that again, and to grow character. Anyone can act nice when everything is going their way. Its how they act when they are beaten down by life that shows their character.
  • Well, things happen for a reason. If we had the vision of God we could probably very well answer that question. Sometimes things that happen that we see as bad are blessings in disguise.
  • Bad things don't happen to good people. Bad things only happen to bad people as karma catches up with them. Good people just get life corrections and diversions that make them stronger.
  • Hinduism identifies karma as the relationship between a person's mental or physical action and the consequences following that action. It also signifies the consequences of all the actions of a person in their current and previous lives and the chain of cause and effect in morality. Why does karma happen? You constantly create Karma from your actions, thoughts, words, from the actions of others under your control, from your attitudes, expectations, and lifestyle. You create Karma from the intended actions you perform consciously and also from actions done unconsciously from ignorance. From this definition you can see that Karma is a religious teaching from Hinduism. Okay I am not a Hindu, but I would like to give the Bible's perspective about Why People Suffer. Ecclesiastes 9:11 says, "I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all". ASV Here, in the book of Ecclesiastes, rather than suggesting that everything in life is determined by fate, Solomon was pointing out that humans cannot accurately predict the outcome of any endeavor “because time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all.” Often, something happens to a person simply because he is in the right place at the right time, or we might say, in the wrong place at the wrong time. Even Jesus Christ spoke of a certain calamity involving 18 people who were killed when a tower fell on them. (Luke 13:4) They suffered because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Similar things happen today. For example, a brick may break loose from the top of a high building and strike a pedestrian. Is God or Karma to blame? No. It was an unplanned and unforeseen occurrence. So does this mean there is no hope? Not at all; let me share one of many scriptures that gives me a secure hope at Revelations 21:4 "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away". KJV Just imagine how, no more pain, sorrow, or even death, would end all causes of suffering. If you would like more information on this or any other Bible topic, please login into the free web site
  • The law of Karma is a core tenet of Indian philosophy. It neither accepts questions nor provides answers, but merely urges acceptance. That violates human reasoning. Bad things happen to good people because Satan has domain over the world. 2 Corinthians 4:4 "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."
  • Karma can go thru more than 1 life time in Hindu tradition. 2/12/23
