    what do you guys think, karma is it fake or real.

    my personal opinion, is if i got builled for example , i would want that person who bullied me to suffer sometime in their life. But just because i want it to happen doesnt mean it will. That person might go on to have a successful career, happily married and maybe have kids.
    I just think we use karma, to make ourselves feel like their is justice in the world. I wish it existed but i dont think it does.

    I believe in karma. Everything we do has a effect on another and if that effect is detrimental to that individual then the universe will make us pay!

    Edit; yes, the notion of karma also makes me feel better about all the people who get away with acting like a-holes.

    How do you know it exsist though? Once again you want it to exist because all the people who did you wrong, you want them to feel the pain, dont mean they will just bcause you want them too.

    Belive me I really want karma to exist too, but I know its fake now.

    (BTW im not shouting at you just trying to debate)

    I don't believe there is some unseen force of karma that rewards the good and punishes the bad but I believe that if one spent most of their life being a caring and generous person then in general the same would be returned unto them.

    well if i got bullied and certain people made my life hell, and made me feel so **** that i wanted to kill myself. I feel as if they should have to go through **** aswell, wasn't fair that i forced to feel like a complete pathetic unworthy of life loser.

    Don't worry, i am not easily offended.

    Karma is not tangible. There is no hard evidence that is exists but it is my belief that in order for there to be a balance in the universe it is essential that our actions have consequences.

    For example, a murderer receiving a jail sentence, in my eyes, that is karma paying him back.

    On the other hand, there are opposing arguments. Therefore, it is a difficult one to call.

    It's not real, it's a made up concept to make people feel better about what has happened to them. The best thing you can do is move on. I agree with an earlier poster who said that if someone spends their life being good to others the same will be returned to them.

    Exactly. Tbh the way I see it, if you do bad things it will come back to haunt you (you get your comeuppance), if that makes sense.

    Fake. I've seen the worst possible things happen to the best people, and vice versa.

    If they get away with acting like a-holes then surely karma has failed you?

    I don't think its real. If someone does something bad to me and something bad later happens to them the two events are not related. It may be comforting to think they are related but they probably aren't

    In the sense that it will eventually catch up with them at some point in their lifetime.

    There's no proof that Karma happens, unless someone does something

    Depends what different concept of Karma you have. Buddhism more often than not, see it as a link of cause and effect. If you behave badly, or ignorantly, and something as a result of that bad happens to you, as a RESPONSE or caused directly or indirectly, THAT is karma. It typically tends to be more of a Hindu idea that Karma is some universal law that if you do bad, your life will be made hard by some deity of sorts. (that said, hinduism is very varied, not all hindus believe that, some are close to the buddhist train of thought)

    In the buddhist sense. I think karma has an essence of truth to it. But not in the sense of it's some eternal universal law.

    Here's an example. A man, who is married, is cheating on his wife with a mistress. The mistress is unaware of his marriage. His wife finds out about his mistress, then trouble follows. Now, his mistress is told by his wife, that this man has a wife. And she leaves him. So, here's an example of doing something seen as bad/wrong/distatesful, and negative consequences resulting directly because of that.
