Today marks the first edition, of “The Pondering Column.” Here I will discuss, reader- written questions, regarding morals, philosophy and belief.
Today’s question is asked by Miles Baron: “Does some form of Karma exist?”
The short answer to this question is yes Karma — in some form — exists. Now let’s get specific. Karma is the idea that, what someone does in the past (or present) will affect their future.
Essentially, if you do something good, something good will happen to you, or if you do something bad, something bad will happen to you. This progression is explained by one of two things, life or religion. Religiously speaking, most often, if someone does good in the world, they will be rewarded by their God (in a multitude of differing ways), resulting in a karmic exchange.
Alternatively, from the life point of view (essentially non-religious speculation for Karma), if someone does something good (or bad) in life, the good (or bad) will come back around. If a child hits a baseball into a neighbor’s window and runs off, the neighbor will be irritated, at least.
