How Does Karma Work?
If you’re worried about your karmic balance or feel like there is a debt you owe, it may be the result of something you did in a past life. Karma is based on the idea that you get out of life what you put into it; if you’re kind, you’ll receive positive karma, meaning that good things will happen to you. On the flipside, if you’re selfish, you can expect the opposite. The thing about karma is that many people believe that you can experience its effects in this life or the next. Karma could be applied to a life you’re set to live many generations from now; this is the view held by those who believe in reincarnation.
Does Karma Really Exist?
You may be wondering if karma is even real, many people do. The belief of karma has been around for over two thousand years and its history rooted in religion. The concept of karma is largely tied to the belief of rebirth, otherwise known as reincarnation. As stated earlier, the effects of karma can follow you throughout a multitude of lifetimes ensuring that you’ll always get your just deserts. The problem that some people have with this concept is that we could be paying for wrong-doings from a life we don’t remember; who’s to say that we’re the same person now as we were back then?
Karma and Free Will
The issue of karma comes up against a lot of scrutiny when it comes to the power of free will. You see, if our actions in a past life have a way of dictating the things that happen to us in this life, wouldn’t that strip us of what it means to have absolute free will?. It’s important to state that many religions face this problem, especially if they’re dealing with an all-knowing God; a statement that seems to suggest that all of your actions have already been determined. So, in God’s eyes, your life is nothing more than a video with the outcome always being the same.
You’re probably wondering how karma can affect the concept of free will. Well, here’s a quick example.
Let’s talk about Tom; In his past life, Tom’s name was Dave. Dave was an evil person who physically abused people and took joy in their suffering. However, in this life, Dave, who is now Tom, is just an ordinary guy doing ordinary things. Nonetheless, in order to pay his karmic debt, Tom is beaten and robbed by a stranger. Whilst this act may seem to balance things out due to Tom’s past life crimes, what about the person who abused Tom in this life? This person could say they were just fulfilling karma’s debt, thus, stripping them of their free will since they had no choice in the matter. So, will they be forced to pay for this in another life?
