Karma is very interesting. I did grow up with the idea of reincarnation and karma being sort-of believed in by my mom though not exactly instructed to me. To me, karma as I understand it seems plausible and reasonable. If I understand correctly, both one's actions and one's intentions play some role in garnering some kind of energy around you that can be positive or negative and that has effects in both this life and in the next.Hi TLW,
It sounds like you may be open to ideas like karma and reincarnation. What do you think of the idea of karma?
Do I have that right?
Is it possible to assess what your karma is? That is, whether you have good or bad karma, how much, what you can do to change it, whether things that have happened in your life are about past karma, (this or previous life) etc?
Does the idea of karma correspond in any way with Western religious doctrinal ideas around obedience, grace, forgiveness of sin etc or is it so different from those ideas that is doesn't align at all?
