For example, one child slaps another in the playground; this child slaps a third; the third child slaps two children to account for the severity of slapping he received from child two; and so we have a never ending cycle of violence all based on causality. Good karma would be to take a slapping and not pass it on to the next person, thereby ending the cycle of bad karma. The same can be said of good karma, where one good deed begets another.
The reason I felt compelled to comment on this thread was that it annoys me to see karma being mis-interpreted in this way. It is a perversion of the concept of karma to attach this pseudo-christian mumbo-jumbo about punishment in the afterlife to what is an idea which is based completely on human choice, not a basis for afflictment. It is, I think, wrong to view people born with disabilities as guilty of some undisclosed sin in a previous life. Why not create a character to believe in? Imagine they were Jack Ripper, Hitler, Ted Bundy, I don't know......
Anyone remember Glen Hoddle?

Thank your lucky stars if you have a good life with no worrys, what about children that are abused on a daily basis on many levels, sorry but this is a fact of this life i work with them,if in fact this is a real fact>karma from previous life's, its only going to get worse negative shit happening to children just makes more negative shit come down, its a chain reaction, if you have a good life suck it up, many dont deserve what they are getting, especially if its from a previous life they can not remember.
Child abuse is fucked up!
Change is being ordered from all, youth too!
The youth dose not have addiction problems with drink and drugs, they are trying to escape the reality they have been born into, so mr ptb you are fucked its coming,change is coming you have no ware to go we are coming after you!
So many times over my life I've heard the same arguments to your question. Most people are influenced by what they read. An Idea that started from a seed grew to the point that it's taken over the garden. I'm 64, successful, and a somewhat a deep thinker. The things that many of you think new today are old thoughts and old news to someone my age. One of the things I learned was that knowledge is not the end to the question. Without the wisdomto know what to do with the knowledge, knowledge is just another cloud that fills the mind.
I've studied for most of my life and I found that the final answer was just out of reach because each Path lead down another with another possibility. I've asked the question of "why am I here". I've looked at the night sky and wondered. I've loved and found it rewarding, I've lost love and found it painfull but not lasting. I've watched young children and found that all races can live together. I've learned loyality from Jazz, my dog. I've studied every so called religous belief and found that they all have the message of love but don't practice it. I've traveled 35 countries and found that people are mostly the same. They feel hope and dispare, love and hate, and were all basically asking the same question, "who am I and why am I here".
When I was younger, the paths that seemed exciting and mysterious were the ones I took but they were rocky and had many side roads. Now with the end of life not that far away I take the path that leads beside a gently flowing stream and I realize that most people live in the "what if" instead of the "what is". Enjoy the life we have and make the most of it no matter where it came from or who gave it. This is your life and happiness is a matter of mental attutude. Just remember that life is shorter than you think.
