Karma, is it real?

Karma, does it really happen to anyone? Well I'm here to tell you that it does exist,and I have had it happen to me more then once in the past three months. About two weeks ago Sweetpickles69 and Strongelk2006. We went to Wal-mart to do some shopping, and we was just looking though some clearance rack. As we was looking sweetpickles found a jean jacket,,a Levis jean jacket. Now you would think the only jacket on the rack would be a off sizes that would be to small,,or to big ,,right! Well, we were surprised to find that it fit me like a tailor made just for me.

It's like it was just waiting for me to find it,,then we was looking at some shoes for my BIG feet,,and we found the only pair size 12 in the style at I was looking for.This is only a couple of times that I feel Karma touch my shoulder.

For the past three months, that I have been with sweetpickles I feel Karma has been a big part of my life,,as well as sweetpickles has had Karma help her in someways too.

Now, if you have a story about Karma that touch you, I would like to hear it,,just leave me a word ,or two.



Peace,,,,,,,,Coolness..........N.B.

    Quoting spunky11961:
    This man speaks with truth Strongelk,Buddhism is not a religion it's a way of life, a path to folow through life,one our ancesters traveled in similar ways~ and a path that believes fully in Karma
    ~keep it real~
    ~spunky
You speak the truth spunky. It always amazes me that so few people recognize the nature of Buddhism and that it makes no claims one way or the other about any god, only about how to live a happy/beneficial life.

I know that experience. I have had that happen to me before. A feeling that things just snap into place like dominos falling in front of you making a path. Just walk the path.

I returned to clooege when I was 47, having decided that I would like a new career in education. After completing my degree and student teaching I was on campus attending a job fair to look for a teaching position. I already had one offer in hand, but it was a non-conventional school and the pay was very low. So I attended the job fair and after the fair I decided to stop by the main campus buildings and say hi to some of the faculty I had studied with. Walking through the science building I noticed that the door of the coordinator of the developmental mathematics programwas open. Now understand that I had met this man exactly once, three years earlier when I first came to the campus as a new student. I had stopped by his office to ask his advice about what class to take first. He suggested a level that I was sure would be too easy for me, so I ignored his advice and started with a higher level course. I never saw or spoke to the man again until this day. So I walk into his office. He looks up from his desk, and asks me if I want a job supervising the tutoring center on campus!!! He was literally sitting there writing up an ad to put in the paper seeking someone for the job when I walked in. Not only was the pay better than the position I had olready been offered, it was better than typical starting pay for any teaching position in the area (in fact I make more than many of the professors in my department!!) Now that's good karma,, but the story goes even further. Ths position is an equal opportunity employment position, so it had to be advertised to the general public, and many people applied for the job. The way this goes at a state university, resume's are previewed and the best candidates are invited for an interview. When that time came everyone invited except me declined the interview offer!!!!!!!

Now that's what I call good karma. (without getting into the technical aspects of how karma is different from dumb luck) Take it from a 35 year confirmed Buddhist, this was karma in action.
