Destiny or Karma?


Do you believe in karma?

The word karma means action, and it's used as a sort of shorthand for the idea that every action that you take has a reaction in the future. Sort of like the Christian verse "as ye sow, so shall ye reep". And so each individual is ultimately responsible for his or her own actions and karma. Now, it's important to remember that these are intended actions, if you accidentally step on a bug and kill it, it's not going to create bad karma. And likewise, if you unitentionally do something that benefits someone, it isn't going to create good karma.

Do you believe in destiny or fate?

The word fate refres to things that will happen to a person in the future, and cannot be changed. Like an irresistible power that determines the future. It's based on the belief that there is a fixed natural order to the universe.

I believe in karma, because when you make someone feel better about themselves, they in turn cause a sort of chain reaction and pass it along. It's also the same with bad actions...
I've always liked that saying: "Be careful of who's toes you step on, because they may be connected to the ass you have to kiss later"... LOL! (And in my life, I've experienced that on both sides, numerous times... ).
As for fate, sorry, but no. It would totally go against my concept of "free will". Destiny, possibly, in a sense that you can screw it up or help make it better through your "karma", but if things are meant to happen regardless of what we do, what's the point?
