this theory doesnt just apply to karma, it is also rooted in catholic thought through the idea of original sin or 'the sins of the fathers'. this idea states that all humankind deserves to suffer due to adam's betrayal of god in the garden of eden.

its all nonsense. nobody deserves to be punished for anything beyond their control.

Why your waiting to hear from those "karma followers", you could always do a bit of looking into karma yourself and if it is indeed "twisted".


because i like to discuss things from individual points of view rather than discussing to a page of text........they dont talk well


plus, isnt the whole point of ats to find something interesting and discuss it rather than just doing research and that the end of it?

id unno but i was curious to find someone

You have an open mind right? Please don't take this wrong, but you base your opinions and beliefs off what others say?

Yes, pages don't speak, as of yet, but they give an understanding of something that may not be relayed by hearing anothers opinion, and vice versa.

You may eventually do as you please, but the information is there ifin' you take the initiative to look at it and try to understand what you can....I believe, IMHO, that doing so will lend to a better understanding of what you seek...then again, of coarse, unless you have an agenda. You don't have an "agenda" do you?


Knowledge is power, and that knowledge is not always fully attained by hearing it from anothers biased opinions, beliefs, etc.....correct?

If you think Karma is bad, it looks as if the Wiccans get it three times as bad ...



The Law of Return
Also known as the "Threefold Law" or the "Rule of Three"

There are many variations of the phrasing of the Threefold Law, but it generally goes something like:


Ever Mind The Rule Of Three
Three Times Your Acts Return To Thee
This Lesson Well, Thou Must Learn
Thou Only Gets What Thee Dost Earn



When you take a resource, even with good intentions, there will be repercussions. The petty cash box will soon be empty if one doesn't occasionally put money into it as well as take it out. Actions need to be balanced, or else things can get quite out of control to a degree many times over that of the original issue.

In other words, there's no such thing as a free lunch.

Other phrasings emphasize completely separate issues, which author Phyllis Curott has recently taken to calling the Boomerang Whammy Rule:2

Mind the Threefold Law you should,
Three times bad and three times good.

i have looked at it!


and i realize that i havent been basing my opinions off of others, because my viewof what karma is seems to be alot different!

no foul play here
just trying to get an opinin, andi sure did get one!

ive learned than many people would say...KARMA CAN KISS MY ASH

but none that say karma rules!

i find this comical, because most people around here are the other way around

crazed stuff. but 3's have alot of importance elsewhere that i know of.
to me and my theories, when two people have a reltionship (lovers, friends, enemies, anything) there are actually 3 bodies. theres me, theres you, then theres us. if all 3 are not engaged then the relationship will fail

ive also got this huge thing with the 3 muses and im writing awhole story about this trio and blah

but also- 3's and 7's are usually the only numbers you will find fairy tale creatures in!

According to popular western bias, we are born with " Sin " and this has passed as a " norm " of society.

Bhuddist Karmic Law adds a bit more fruitfull insight,

www.ncf.carleton.ca...



The Law of Karma
In Buddhist teaching, the law of karma, says only this: `for every event that occurs, there will follow another event whose existence was caused by the first, and this second event will be pleasant or unpleasant according as its cause was skillful or unskillful.' A skillful event is one that is not accompanied by craving, resistance or delusions; an unskillful event is one that is accompanied by any one of those things. (Events are not skillful in themselves, but are so called only in virtue of the mental events that occur with them.)
Therefore, the law of Karma teaches that responsibility for unskillful actions is born by the person who commits them.



Karma seems though to be a mechanism of control intwined in fantasy and lore sounding more viable to its followers.

Karma is more like an subjective idea about reality, much like other religions on "how to live your life." Karma is not a good excuse to "allow" someone to do something to somebody else. It is for the individual to watch their own actions, thoughts, words, etc., with the understanding of the "what goes around, comes around" theory.
