"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you". Thi is the GOLDEN RULE, and this is how I understand the word 'KARMA'. Do bad things to others and bad things will going to happen to you too. Familiar line in the TV SHOW, 'My Name Is Earl'. Treat others as you would like others to treat you. I think KARMA doesnt necessarily strikes seconds,minutes, hours, days... etc after you done something bad. When it is least expected, BUM! there it is, KARMA! We should always think first before we say or do something... because who knows, when will KARMA gonna come, and get you.

Of course I believe in karma. Karma is a worldwide concept for every religion...just don't tell an old baptist person that (speaking from experience!) We will all get what we deserve and the Bible verse you quoted is a prime example of that concept for the Christian faith. This is why we should treat other well, but not the primary reason. We should treat other well because that's the right thing to do.

I believe in karma. Things definitely have a way of coming around even if it is not in the most direct or timely manner. I believe karma can even be dealt with in a future lifetime which is why it seems like some people never get what they deserve for their actions.

I totally agree... I was a nice gf with my first bf but he still cheated on me and lied to me almost all the time. I question GOD what did I do wrong to deserve someone like him? Coz I am a firm believer of KARMA ever since thats why I think of things that I done wrong in the past just to justify my bad karma. However, I wasn't able to find one... so I decided to break up with him and just stop all the communications between us after I caught him cheating on me for the second time. Almost two years past, I meet my second bf. He is the nicest, loving guy in the whole world. He is not perfect, got lots of flaws but when it comes to me he always tries to be perfect. And then it hit me, he must be the payment for my bad KARMA. God gave me the exact opposite of my first. So karma doesn't necessarily comes fast... sometimes it takes years for you to experience it. Just like you said it can be deal with in a future lifetime. Thank you for the response.

I believe in Karma, and I believe that Karma is the equalizer of our lives. Its just there so that good and evil is balanced. I also see karma in a way of how we differ in terms of problems. One may be filthy rich but has other problems, while others without those kind of problems have difficulty in terms of money. I don't make sense. Yes I know, but thats how I view karma. Another example is the saying that "don't laugh too much, later you will cry" Happiness in great proportions should be equaled, with I guess sadness, that's why toddlers when they have a laughing trip, what I observe is that they cry a LOT before sleeping or they wake up in the middle of the night and starts crying. That is, in my opinion, the best example of karma. Karma is also non - progressive, meaning it doesn't necessarily come in the future, sometimes, there is Karma that we are paying for because of our actions we WILL do in the FUTURE. And that's too much to elaborate. Thanks for the topic
