K is for karma

Do you believe in karma? Apparently the way we all think about it is wrong; karma is supposed to only happen as part of reincarnation, passed on from life to life, but popular thinking is that it can also happen within one life, that things balance out.
I’d like to think that’s true; that the world has a way to ensure balance. What goes around comes around. As ye sow, so shall ye reap.
It can be satisfying, when wronged, to put aside thoughts of revenge in the belief that nature/fate/call it what you like will at some point take your revenge for you.
Whether that’s true or not, letting go in this way is surely far better for us than holding on to bitterness.
And surely those who are nasty in some way attract nastiness, as those who look only for the good in people bring out that good.

  1. I’m in your court. I too would like to believe that the universe likes to balance itself.
