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.
in The Bible
Isa 58:1 "Cry loudly, do not hold back; Raise your voice like a trumpet, And declare to My people their transgression, And to the house of Jacob their sins. Isa 58:6 "Is this not the fast which I choose, To loosen the bonds of wickedness, To undo the bands of the yoke, And to let the oppressed go free, And break every yoke? Isa 58:7 "Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry, And bring the homeless poor into the house; When you see the naked, to cover him; And not to hide yourself from your own flesh? Isa 58:14 Then you will take delight in the LORD, And I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; And I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, For the mouth of the LORD has spoken." Isa 59:2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He does not hear. Isa 59:3 For your hands are defiled with blood, And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken falsehood, Your tongue mutters wickedness. Isa 59:19 So they will fear the name of the LORD from the west And His glory from the rising of the sun, For He will come like a rushing stream, Which the wind of the LORD drives. Isa 59:20 "And a Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob," declares the LORD.
