We are born as sinners only because of our karma.
And Karma is a concept that supposedly justifies our difficult conditions in life. But does it justifies our exploitation by those that are unwilling to show themselves.
I don't believe we are born in sin. I'm not even sure karma actually exists. But the concepts of sin and karma aren't that far apart.
I wish karma was operational. A universal justice sounds good to me. But I fear the top of the pyramid of power might be dictating events along another line other than justice.
How do you know karma exists? I'm not saying it doesn't, but there is no evidence that it does.
And if karma exists, who is making it happen. These administers of karma must be very powerful to cause people to experience events consistent with their karma.
Whether karma exists or is a process, I want to understand who pulls the karma strings. I don't think karma is like gravity. Gravity doesn't require anybody pulling strings. Gravity simply is.
Karma, on the other hand, requires negative or positive things to occur as a result of our behaviour. Somebody or some force has to apply specific applications of intelligent power consistent with karma.
An example of karma. You are cruel towards someone. You meet that someone in your next life. They are cruel towards you.
Who set you up to meet the person once again in order to have you experience your karma? It might be a quiet voice saying, enter this coffee shop. Who was the quiet voice.
The quiet voice is me? I'm way smarter than I think. If my quiet voice was actually leading me, I would have turned right in a big hurry at certain times. Instead, I didn't hesitate.
then karma doesn't exist if it all comes back to me leading my own live anyways.
i choose to be a jerk to everyone, and i chose to always end up on top, regardless of justice.
