I'm a big fan of "My name is Earl". That is what prompted my question. Do you believe in Karma?

Yes I believe in Karma. I treat people the way I expect to be treated. I find that if you do something wrong and get away with it. Karma has a way of coming back and biting you on the butt. My daughter found out this recently. I had told her not to associate with this person as the woman only thought of herself and what she wanted. She never thought of anybody else. My daughter refused to take my advice. 2 months later this woman came over to my daughters house while her children had chicken pox. My daughter had never had chicken pox and this woman knew this. My daughter ended up with the chicken pox and lost out on almost 2 weeks work. As she is only casual that is a lot of money. She rang me and said I was right and she was sorry she did not listen to me. Karma.

I am one of the many people who believes in karma. Recently I have had some REALLY bad things happening in my life. Not necessarily bad, but not favorable. I couldn't figure out why all this has been happening, because I've always been about good karma. Well today I went to dictionary.com and looked up the word "karma." This is what I read: kar·ma /'k?rm?/ –noun 1. Hinduism, Buddhism. action, seen as bringing upon oneself inevitable results, good or bad, either in this life or in a reincarnation: in Hinduism one of the means of reaching Brahman. 2. Theosophy. the cosmic principle according to which each person is rewarded or punished in one incarnation according to that person's deeds in the previous incarnation. 3. fate; destiny. 4. the good or bad emanations felt to be generated by someone or something. 1. Hinduism & Buddhism The total effect of a person's actions and conduct during the successive phases of the person's existence, regarded as determining the person's destiny. 2. Fate; destiny. 3. Informal A distinctive aura, atmosphere, or feeling: There's bad karma around the house today. noun (Hinduism and Buddhism) the effects of a person's actions that determine his destiny in his next incarnation This is why.
