SORT BY Relevancy
What goes around, comes around.
Well, does it really? Is there a guaranteed balance of some sort to morality; to our actions and knowledge? Is your life just a small part of a connected consciousness? If so, how?
I recently watched a movie called CLOUD ATLAS, which revolves around this idea. It bounces around time, focusing on the actions of mainly good characters facing evil ones, and how their actions and knowledge are connected througout time. In the end, despite evil still winning out in a way, it hints that the seeds of good were planted and eventually take over. There is one character played by Halle Berry that seems to come from a time when this is so; that humanity is overwhelmingly good.
So what about this Karma business? Is it valid? Is there any proof that human morality balances, or changes at all, automatically by natural or supernatural forces?
This is the tough part, because I believe in the connectedness and default improvement of humanity, but it isn't through mysticism or spirituality. I believe, from evidence (evolution), that if we stay alive long enough we will become more moral through conscious growth as a species. But, that belief is not that practical, and not knowledge.
The practical knowledge is that in our lives everything works on cause and effect; if I hurt people there are effects, and if I heal people there are effects. The understandable now and seemingly reasonable future are the reasons to get better. But there is no guarantee that acts of kindness or evil will build and eventually overcome.
Believing in that guarantee can have consequences; real effects that matter. I will explain what that is and how buying in to any unforeseeable reality at play is negative.
Have you heard many times in your life? - "It must be karma." What is it? Is it real? Is there any thing we should know about it? Why do bad things happen to good people - is this karma? How is it created? Are our karmic issues different now that we are in the energy shift? We have heard some of these questions and many more. This program will explore this issue and we want your feedback. We (your hosts) are travelers in the adventure o
The Karma of Mao: The Incompatibility of Socialism and Marxism with Buddhist Principles by awarding winning writer Susanna Godoy Lohse
The Karma of Mao is a devastating critique of socialism and Marxism, through the eyes of a longtime Buddhist, whether the Glorious Progressive World of Next Tuesday is achieved through peaceful or violent means. Karl Marx and the Buddha set out to remedy the ills of the world, but each came up with very different solutions. On the surface, Marxism, and/or socialism seem to be equitable systems of government, but in the end, karma runs all over the Marxist dogma.

What Buddhist truth was exhibited clearly in the failed U.S. housing projects of the late 1960’s and 1970’s? What was the Buddha’s answer to remedying the world’s suffering verses that of Karl Marx? What was the magnificent obsession of the Buddha verses the undying obsession of Marxists? What precept of Karl Marx's own invention did he, himself, violate? These and numerous other questions are answered, including why it is that evil tyrants like Mao Zedong never seem to suffer immediate karmic consequences.
