"Your gonna get your karma." Or "I hope they get their karma." I've heard this many times from a large number of people. Every time I hear it, I cringe. I know most people don't know and or understand what karma is. Also, they have little knowledge of cause and effect. Wait, I know some of you reading this do not believe in karma or cause and effect. To you, I say just because you don't believe in something doesn't mean it isn't true, it simply implies you don't believe in it.
First, let’s define cause and effect.
Cause and effect are the relationship between two things when one thing makes something else happen. Cause is the why something happened, and effect is the what happened.
Here is an example of cause and effect.
Stole (cause) $10 from Mom and got junk food. Mom was going to buy lunch. Now she has no money for her lunch (effect).
Karma is your predestined life before you reincarnated back to earth.
Thus, karma is your current life good, bad or otherwise. For example, a man is very skilled with learning computer codes and gets very high paying jobs. However, he can’t keep the job. He comes to work late and often leaves early. His karma he gets good paying jobs easily.
Many people think that all karma is bad. Quite the contrary good karma does exist. For instance, good car karma would be an individual who has nice cars with no accidents or major car trouble.
We do NOT get to decide someone else’s karma. Simply saying “you did me wrong, you will get your karma.” That is not for us to determine. By speaking about someone else in a negative way, you have just made a negative cause for yourself.
If you can’t say something nice about someone else, then it’s best not to say anything at all.
I hope this helps to understand the difference between karma and cause and effect.
