Wednesdays Question

It's Wednesday so that means it's question time. It's time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We'd all like that.

So here's this weeks question: Do you believe in "Karma"?
Yes I do. I think we reap what we sow. Karma is more than bad things happening to us because bad things will eventually happen. I do think our deeds good or bad come back to us. I know that's the case in my life. I try to always do good things and be kind and most of the time I'm successful.

  1. I do believe in karma but I have to say there are times when it doesn't seem to work on all people.

  3. kar·ma
    ˈkärmə/
    noun

    (in Hinduism and Buddhism) the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences. informal destiny or fate, following as effect from cause.

    So, ummm... No. Show me anywhere in the bible where it teaches that we had a previous existence and perhaps then I could get on board with the concept as a whole. Do I believe that we reap what we sow? Absolutely. “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap” (Gal. 6:7).

    I also believe that bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people, and bugger to that.

    Have a fab day, Sandee! big hugs xoxo

  4. I do believe in karma in a sense. If you put out bad karma in the world, it's going to come back to you and if you put out good things into the world, good will come back.

  6. Well, i believe in the law of sowing and reaping as found in the Bible, and i think it's about the same as what most people mean when they talk of karma. Different title, same principle.

  11. I believe in God and what man does with what God has given him. What man does in his
    ( her ) life pertains in how he applies himself. Did I want a stroke, NO, but I learned how to grow with what God gave me from the stroke. I've learned to be a stronger person under the circumstances that I was given. I'm a happier person even though I was given a serious thing in my life. No, I don't believe in Karma but I believe in what man can do & especially I belive in God.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday Sandee. See ya.

  15. Gotta say I'm with Paul, Mimi and Barb G on this one. I believe in God as well - and that you definitely reap what you sow. You may not always see it happen in this life. Bad people do not always get the punishment they deserve in this life ... and good people do not always reap the rewards of their good deeds in this life - but I have faith that God will deal justly with everyone .... eventually ... and that we'll all reap whatever we've sown. :D

    1. Somehow I've combined the two. The reap what you sow and Karma. :)

  16. I definitely believe we reap what we sow....and life is not always fair, by our standards. This is an interesting question.

  17. I have met Karma.
    As I have mentioned elsewhere on the Interthing, the folks next door, when I was and adolescent and teen, named their daughter Karma.
    She was called Mitzi.

  18. Call it what you will, but I think, for the most part, what goes around, comes around. I treat others as I would like to be treated and hope for the best.

  20. Well, since Barb G. did the research, I am going to have to agree with her. We are fearfully and wonderfully made, but not over and over and over. This is the only life that we have been given by our Creator and we have a choice as to how we live it. Choose wisely. The choices that we make in this life do have eternal consequences.

  26. Yes, I do. I believe we should open our hearts to those most in need, and expect nothing in return, particularly to our fellow human beings who are disadvantaged, and haven't much to give with the exception of the words; thank you. I always live by the values, of love, kindness, loyalty and friendship. Oh, and I forgot gratitude.

    Great question, as always, I'm sorry I a bit late. I hope you had a great day and an even better evening.

    Much love,
