  1. Maybe you misunderstood “cause and effect”.

    Good/bad is a matter of personal interpretation in this context.

    And perhaps, the “good” deeds and the “bad” consequences are not causally linked.

  2. Karma is a strange thing that can be interpreted several ways. You do good things you go to heaven. You do good things you will be reincarnated in a more prosperous life form. By doing good things, does not mean that you will have good things happen to you by way of “karma”. It means that you will have an overall “good” existence by way of karma.

  3. I expect that you want good things to happen to every one? News flash, this isn’t a heaven. All good? With that kind of logic there wouldn’t be karma. Bad things happen too good people, especially if they are dumb and don’t know how to function in society, and deal with their diminutive, insignificant, lousy, tiny problems.

  4. The current explanation for bad things happening to good people in regards to karma is that their previous life was a bad one. I myself only believe in voluntary karma. I believe in a force that arranges coincidences, but I don’t think it has any kind of moral foundation at all. It seems to me that interpretations are causes and our reality is the effect OF that. I think this is what consciousness is. A relationship between the projection of our thoughts into the reality of our experience. I think it includes both.

  5. I have two answers. First, Karma like a monthly budget, and the Cause-and-effect of a single event is one of the items in that budget. Sometimes, when one payment bounces, other transactions in your account bounce because of it–even though they would have been payable it that one payment hadn’t bounced, and/or other payments get cleared because they are for smaller amounts.

    The other answer is the clincher. Karma is like a Ledger-book of your lives (notice that I used a plural there) in the spirit realm. It covers the whole span of your existence as a soul, which means that it is a balancing of events in your past lives against events in your current and future lives.

  6. In strict religious sense, “Karma” sticks to the soul for the many incarnations to come, the good and bad things would eventually come without doubt.

    However, in terms of modern understanding, it is the environment, personalities, bad vibes and reputation around one that “Karma” is reflected as feedback in this life time.

    Successful people usually have very good PR, but eventually the bubble bursts like in Bernie Madoff’s case.

  7. The answer is simple: You are paying back from a previous life.

    Keep doing good. Karma will eventually reward you. And remember, only good can destroy evil.

  8. If God himself has been ousted and the devil given equal parity and his evil permitted to exist as right alongside good then what chance or probability does man have of triumphing against the prevailing wickedness. A wickedness that assaults in turn between periods of respite when incurred offences are allowed to be forgotten.

    If the Creator himself is rendered defunct and nonexistent what hope has man of any judicial prudence awaited from one himself enchained. Of course evil is dismissed as subjective is its malicious intention until it manifests itself into the lives of its exponents and supporters and devils of oppression, then it is called terrorism, defence, intelligence, an invasion of civil liberties etc. It’s a mad and insane world.

    Karma is nonsense, the world is as peaceable and well functioning as the adjudicators, leaders and educators nurturing and parenting it. The onus of resop0nsibility for a failed society in various stages of suffering demanded obedience of from conflicting scriptural and political tenets lies no longer with the individual but the demagogues presiding over the ensuing chaos and mayhem.

    A family, a child, a society, a religion and citizenship are as enlightened, as considerate and human as the governance of the presiding authorities and skill of the bureaucrats in power permit or have accorded. When a few individuals err it is karma, when an entire state of a prosperous nation struggles in poverty or gender orientation then the law of accountability and retribution lies with the establishment, comprising of the institutions of politics, religion, business and an adjudicating media.

    Cause and effect laws of causal retribution rely upon the autonomy of each individual to make conscientious decisions based upon received tutelage usually counterproductive against a prevailing contradictory censorship or suppression of liberty, right or freedom of expression within the bounds of set limits. In a mismanaged dysfunctional society where moral decay and civil anarchy is commonplace blame is taken upon by the [powers at large. The fact that there is no one power solely responsible for any errors or failings in his society is indicative of a greater problem in the universe.

  9. Cause and Effect have NOTHING to do with Karma.
    People think, “Oh I did something bad, that’s bad Karma.”

    The only thing Karma correlates to is Dharma. If you fulfill your
    dharma, then you have good Karma, if you do not, then it is bad.

    You don’t have to worry about Karma, or Dharma, because judging
    by this question, you are not Hindu.

  10. Hector, “Cause and Effect” when of a scientific usage, may refer to that principle wherein a particular “effect A” will be produced by a particular “cause Y.” If this holds true for a sufficient number of trials and this “effect A” always results from “cause Y” then the relation between A and Y is established, and it may become a “scientific fact” to be noted.

    But speaking of “karma” or “karmic consequences” in the sense that a Hindu may put it, this is more akin to that principle in Science that postulates a “reaction” to every “action.” Nevertheless, it is neutral. It is not meant to be “judgmental” or “judicatory” in such a way that “evil” and “good” are distinguishable.

    Karma has been given so many interpretations as there are Hindi Cults and sub-cults that adapted this “oriental tenet” of Cosmic Justice. The Christian and Judaic equivalent for this is the Mosaic law of the Talion, the so-called “eye-for-an-eye” and “tooth-for-a-tooth” basis for criminal retribution. Islam, being also of Judaic origins, may be safely said to be working along this line, in addition to its own dogmatic creeds. And, even the modern day Psychologists, espousing the “task-and-reward” concept of influencing human behaviour may be taken to conform to this pattern.

    But why should it misfire? Why should “bad” be returned for “good?” Maybe, it is not that at all. Contrary to all appearances, there was no injustice done. Perhaps, it is just a matter of interpretation. Out of so many “good” and “bad” we are all doing sporadically, there is no longer a way to correlate “which act” gets “which karma.” We could err in thinking that the “recent punishment” were intended for the “recent good” that we did, forgetting the “previous bad” that we have also committed. We could think like that dog that when called and beaten by its master because it did something wrong, thought erroneously, that it was beaten because it came when called.
