Default Do you believe in Karma?

Also known as the just-world. where bad things happen to people who deserve them and good things happen to good people.

I believe in a different system that similar to it. Good and bad are balanced; not to a individual extent, but as a whole. As one/many bad thing happens to a person/people, good thing(s) happen to some other individual/group.

i agree that they are balanced to an extent. with the heat death of the universe the net result of all of our actions will eventually amount to 0. no matter how good or bad people behave or how good or bad their experiences are for them it all ends up being equal.

This is what all western religions teach - day judgement after you die type shit. The trippy part is when you learn about near death experiences where all of these respectable people become convinced of an afterlife, many of them reporting learning about something similar.

not... because i don't believe in good or bad... there are just situations... good and bad are the way humans interpret those situations.

I've seen too many people get the opposite of what they deserved to believe in it, on both sides of the spectrum.

i tend to approach it the same way Pascal did his Wager. if i believe in karma and live accordingly, what have i lost? nothing, in fact i've gained the satisfaction of living in karmic harmony.
