Just to let you know we have had a total of 3 donations from Paypal for
www.hiv-aids-kids.org... orphaned children living with HIV/AIDS.
Yes in the world in which we live charities have to compete for your attention. They even have to advertise spending the money that has been donated.
At this center we do not do this at all we rely on volunteers to get the website to the top in Google if someone searches for something like help kids with HIV/AIDS. Believe me that was not easy.
So rest assured your Karma will have been improved just by starting this thread. If more of us lived by Pay it Forward this world would improve it’s Karma.

For Every Action, There is an Equal and Opposite Reaction.
That's Newton's Third Law of Motion, and it applies to moving bodies in mechanical systems, not to souls or atma or whatever you want to call them.
You do not think a Soul is a Moving Body or Mechanical system.
From planet Humorless perhaps?
You are sadly mistaken and walled up in only the physical definitions you see.
It is called an Analogy I believe when comparisons as such are made,,,,,, Jez
I am Very very aware of Newton's Third Law of Motion,,,,

I'm guessing this was one of their experiments. I hope he has good dental insurance....
Anyway..... back on subject.
Karma is discussed in a very interesting way if you've ever read the book 'The Secret'. The author[s] discuss the manner in which like attracts like, meaning; if you do good things and focus on your goals, then these goals will be achieved, and if you focus on nothing but negativity and live with a "woe is me" attitude then you can expect nothing but a continuance of this kind of pattern. Our minds are constantly feeding our reality, and its up to us the kinds of lives that we lead. Everything from wealth, to heath, to the career we have, to the legacy we leave behind is entirely up to us.
This idea actually reinforces my belief of what Heaven & Hell actually are. They aren't literal places, they're states of mind, fed by karma, not rewards for the afterlife, but rewards for this life... as well as the next.
[Don't let the mob worry you. No one likes to have their beliefs challenged, especially if they've devoted their entire lives to them, hence the current state the world is in. Personally; I prefer the idea that we are instantly rewarded and/or punished for our deeds, and the proof of this system is all around us, rather than the old belief that we are rewarded/judged years down the line for lessons learned (or not).]
