This just in: let’s pretend that science has proven that Karma is a thing. Your words and actions will influence what happens to you in the future.How (if at all) will you change your ways?
Whether science proved it or not Karma, is a thing. My experience tells me bad deeds are punished in the end,no one can get away with it.
Liars may think they can convince people about someone with a straight face, it does not work in the end and their mischief will see an end, some don’t get punished until a very long time, and they continue with this behavior thinking they’ll never be caught, they are naive to think so as the saying goes:
“Life is an echo, all comes back ,
The good, the bad the true.
So give the world the best you have,
And the best will return to you.
I try my best to keep the saying in mind, to avoid taking a wrong step, because I know if I don’t I will face whatever wrong I have done. I do try to be a good person. It never hurts to be nice.
Reincarnation do you believe in it?
Do I believe in,”Reincarnation?” I cannot say yes or no, simply because I don’t know.
I know “Reincarnation” is the religious or philosophical concept that the soul or spirit , after biological death can begin a new life in a new body.
Majority of sects such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam do not believe that individuals reincarnate.
In Latin reincarnation means, “entering the flesh again.”
There is no word in Pali or Sanskrit which corresponds exactly to rebirth, transmigration or reincarnation.The process that gives rise to the cycle of death and rebirth governed by Karma is referred to as “Samsara”.
Samsara is a Sanskrit word which means “a wandering through”.The concept of Samsara is closely associated with the belief that the ignorant person continues to be born and reborn in various realms in the form of a human, animal, or other being, even plants and rocks(depending on Karma) but most philosophic traditions of Hinduism and Buddhism maintain that plants and rocks cannot be included since they lack the possibility of experience(bhoga)and,hence of karma.
Tagore in his song titled “forever me” clearly indicates that he’d be reincarnated , his words,” who says I won’t be there, I will be there as a new person with a different identity,” which in my mind means he’d be born again.
Whether I believe in reincarnation is something I did not think of, so I cannot give a definitive answer!
I truly believe our thoughts and actions will influence what happens to me in the future. There are so many examples of how ones Karma catches up with them. In sports there are athletes who become the best. The hidden fact behind their awesome talent is they take performance enhancing drugs. Do they get away,no they are caught, maybe not when they are playing but after they retire. They end up paying a heavy price for their deceit.
Then there are serial killers who do get caught and face death penalty. This is what Karma is.
This is why we say,”Crime does not pay.”
When I know my words and actions will influence me in the future, I will refrain from doing anything bad because I will have to face Karma.
I believe in this proverb: “Life is an echo ; all comes back ,the good the bad and true,so give the world the best you have and the best will come back to you.”
