what goes around comes around?

Does it, do people really get what they deserve. I see no evidence of karmaic justice. Do you theink that people actually do get what they deserve or that it is a load of old rubbish? When was the last time you saw someone get what was coming to them?

Sometimes it does end up in karmaic justice but most of the time it doesn't. One of my ex's cheated on me and I was heart broken. I didn't speak to him for years, then one day I went ice skating and surprisingly he was there too. He ended up getting a phone call while he was talking to me and it was his bestfriend informing him he just caught my ex's current gf cheating on him. He was so heart broken and was crying on my shoulder and then realized that he had done the same to me and appologized. I accepted his appology and just hope he doesn't cheat on anyone ever again. So that was karmaic justice but most of the time I think people just say that to make others feel better. I always try to be the nice girl, try to help everyone out and it always backfires on me and I end up getting screwed over in the end. Everyone always tells me that one day, I will be rewarded and the one's who screwed me will get what they deserve, but I doubt that. I've just stopped trying to help others now.

I think people get what they deserve, but it may not always be visible to us. I know that people at my workplace have gotten what they deserved when they've tried to be underhanded. People have lied to try to get ahead only to have it bite them in the a$$ (which they deserved). I don't know though. It seems like some people really do get away with a lot and never get punished.

I do agree...it's not always visible or we might not find out but in the end it does bite them where it hurts!

For once, I don't know if we really know what other people are going through in their lives. They may be doing pretty good outside, but they might have some problem that is eating them out inside. I firmly believe in what goes around comes around. Secondly, we all don't get a long life to actually see the law of cause and effect working for each and every action of our lives. Suppose a man is a serial killer and has murdered about 40 people, how can he be murdered 40 times in one life for the law of cause and effect to materialise? Couple that with the mental torture of each victim he has murdered. That's a lot of bad karma and if he is old when he does it, most of his life is already over and there will be nothing much for him to suffer the pain of his bad actions. I believe that our karma is divided into many lifetimes and we don't reap the fruits of all our actions in one lifetime. So, we really can't see it like we see a movie. But its there alright.

I think its a load of old rubbish because people live their one lives and are not controlled by faith or GOD. So when they get what they deserved it is because the people arround made sure they would get what they deserve.

I do beleive what goes around comes around. I've seen many of people that had done things to others and it come back around and bite them in the butt. So yeah people get what they deserve. So yes what goes around comes around maybe not right after but it does come back around to them. Just because it doesnt happen right then dont mean it wont happen to them at some point in life.

yeah, i believe in karma. both in good and bad karma. not that i wish anybody a bad karma, but there are some ways that the universe will do justice for us. though most of us would want to see and experience the karma we expect, however, it's most obvious when we aren't aware. there's nothing much we can do as to what will happen to other people, but we can always influence the bad or good karma that will go our way. =)

I do believe in karmic justice! I don't believe it is visible to the world. I don't believe it's an eye for an eye sort of thing, I just believe that if you do wrong to other people, other people (different people down the line maybe years in the future) will do you wrong. The people you wronged may never know about it, but if you're honest with yourself YOU will know and that's where the justice comes in.

I am a believer of karma but I also think that bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. It's just the luck of the draw in this game called life. People may not always get what they deserve immediately but I do think it happens in due time.
